What Happens After Detox?

While it is critical, detox is only the first stage of a patient’s recovery. Overcoming a chronic drug or alcohol problem also requires following up with drug and alcohol rehab. This typically includes cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, multidimensional family therapy, and contingency management, after completing detox. Now let’s take a closer look at some of the methods that can be used in treatment:

Cognitive behavioral therapy – This type of therapy entails teaching patients how to change their attitude as it relates to drug use. To that point, CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) is designed to help patients recognize situations or patterns of behavior that may contribute to relapse once they have returned to the “real world.” Also, CBT teaches patients relapse prevention strategies that can be used to help keep them on the straight and narrow long after they have completed rehab.

Motivational interviewing – This non-confrontational approach to therapy is used to help boost motivation while encouraging patients to continue treatment. All in all, motivational interviewing is designed to increase patient awareness with regard to the damaging effects of addiction while reinforcing the importance of abstaining from drugs or alcohol.

Multidimensional Family Therapy – Primarily geared toward adolescents with a substance abuse problem, MDFT (Multidimensional family therapy) is a home-based program that encourages family and friends to become active participants in the patient’s recovery efforts.

Contingency management – This form of therapy is used to incentivize positive behaviors. For example, a patient may receive a voucher and other items as a reward for submitting a drug-free urine sample. Studies show that contingency management is an effective way to keep patients not only engaged but also committed to long-term sobriety.

Benefits of a Detox or Rehab Center

If you or someone you know is suffering from any kind of addiction, then a Johns Creek drug and alcohol rehab center can help. There are a number of reasons that you should take advantage of the opportunity to go to an alcoholic treatment center. For instance, there are sleeping and diet assistants to help you get more energy. There is also a special program to help your mind stay focused on positive things in these types of programs. This can be crucial because the outside world is often sending negative information. The key is the immersion aspect that surrounds the client with things that will improve their lives.
