Decatur, GA (PRWEB) October 26, 2013
Drug Rehab Decatur has announced its addiction curriculum is now expanding on programs designed to reduce relapse. After studying recent data, the addiction specialists at Drug Rehab Decatur began noticing the rise of relapse cases among former patients. Addiction counselor Andrea G. says the new emphasis on detox programs has lowered the rate of relapse.
“The toughest part of the rehab process actually takes place when patients leave the facility,” Andrea said. “Giving patients the tools to succeed in the outside world has become has become a bigger priority.”
Avoiding drugs and alcohol is always a difficult task for recovering addicts. Drug Rehab Decatur’s new treatment programs place a greater emphasis on life skills to address post rehab living. Although it’s easier to avoid drugs and alcohol during rehab, the outside world is a different story. Many addicts struggle to avoid the temptations presented to them in social situations.
“It’s important for recovering addicts to remain active in support groups, even after rehab,” Andrea said. “Rehab doesn’t stop when you leave the treatment facility. It’s a life-long process.”
