Guide to Finding a Nearby Lawrenceville Rehab

Every year, millions of Americans suffer from addiction. They feel powerless to stop and may not know where to turn. Their loved ones also suffer the detrimental effects that addiction has on a family. Most addicts don’t get the help they need, but recovery centers are trying to change that. If you’ve hit rock bottom, an Atlanta area or Lawrenceville drug and alcohol rehab can help you get back on your feet. If you’re suffering from an addiction, it’s important to know that there is always hope. There are people who love and care about you. And more than that, you have the capacity to love yourself. You may want to get better for your family or friends, but ultimately, you need to seek help for addiction for your own sake. You are the only person you’ll spend your entire life with. Why not be someone you love?

How Lawrenceville Alcohol Rehab Helps

A recovery center helps in a number of different ways. Recovery centers put you in touch with all the resources you need to fight your addiction. If you choose to have inpatient treatment, they’ll also give you a safe environment where you can get better. You won’t need to deal with the triggers of day-to-day life, and you won’t be able to buy alcohol or drugs. Recovery centers give you resources throughout the addiction recovery process. This means support for detox, outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment, and support groups. If a recovery center doesn’t offer the kind of care you’re looking for, they can give you the information to find it elsewhere.

Types of Lawrenceville Rehabs:

There are four main types of recovery program:

  • Medically supervised detox
  • Inpatient rehabilitation
  • Intensive outpatient programs
  • Regular outpatient care

Detox programs are the first step. It’s important to have your detox medically supervised so that your withdrawal symptoms don’t become dangerous. In addition, the medical staff can give you medication to ease the worst of the symptoms. You may also be prescribed this medication on a maintenance level to help with your cravings in the long term. Inpatient rehab is the most highly recommended, especially if you’ve had problems with relapsing before. With inpatient rehab, you’ll learn how to manage your mental health, educate yourself about addiction, and practice healthy coping mechanisms. You’ll be in a safe, stable environment free from daily stresses. For people who can’t afford inpatient care or to take time off work, one option is an intensive outpatient program. These programs, otherwise known as IOPs, provide the same intensive level of care as an inpatient program. You’ll get the same education about mental health and addiction. You will commit several hours a day to the program. The biggest difference is that you’ll sleep at home. With normal outpatient care, you’ll see a trained therapist or counselor regularly. You may also see a psychiatrist to manage mental health medications. Additional support like group therapy or 12-step programs may be a good idea.

Support for Friends and Family Members

Many recovery centers integrate friends and family into the recovery experience. Addiction affects more than just the addict. In many cases, there are issues with boundaries and broken trust. It’s important to heal these problems and ensure the addict has a strong support network when they leave treatment. One option many recovery centers offer is family therapy. This is when the family of the addict will sit down with the addict and discuss their issues. A trained mediator will help keep the conversation constructive rather than damaging. This tends to be the best time to heal old wounds and set better guidelines for the home living environment. There are also support groups for family members and friends of addicts. These are great options if you want to connect with other people who understand what you’re going through. They offer constructive ways to help the addicts in your life while still taking care of yourself.

Mental Health Help

Addiction is a mental illness. There are also a number of mental illnesses that commonly co-occur with addiction. Addicts sometimes use drugs or alcohol as a way of self-medicating these mental health issues. A recovery center will help you address underlying mental health problems. You’ll learn how to cope with them in ways that don’t involve substance abuse.
