A Forever Recovery, a leading addiction treatment center that has pioneered a moral reasoning approach to recovery that empowers each individual client to access the spiritual, cognitive, and fellowship support that they need, has published a valuable new blog post that highlights the 5 frequently asked questions about drug addiction recovery.
“While addiction itself is very complex and multi-layered, understanding treatment options for drug addiction recovery should be clear and straightforward, so that individuals and their families can make informed decisions,” commented A Forever Recovery’s founder Per Wickstrom.
According to A Forever Recovery, the 5 most frequently asked questions about drug addiction recovery are:
1. Is Professional Treatment Necessary for Recovery?
While some individuals recovery fully – and for the long-term – without professional treatment, the vast majority requires some form of professional services, which can include counseling, medically-supervised detoxification, relapse prevention, holistic treatments, family counseling, after-care and more.
2. What is Drug Addiction Rehab Like?
Drug addiction rehab varies from facility to facility, and it’s true that some are better than others. Those that are highly regarded by both professionals and individual clients alike are ones that provide a full range of programs on both an in-patient and out-patient basis, and have experienced, certified and caring staff who provide constant support. It’s also important for facilities to offer creative and recreational programs, such as art therapy, music therapy, martial arts and more.
3. Will I have to Leave My Family Behind while I’m Recovering?
The thought of being alone and isolated from loved ones is, fortunately, a myth. Credible treatment facilities encourage clients to connect with their family, and draw strength and support from healthy domestic relationships.
4. How Long Does it Take to Fully Recover from a Drug Addiction?
While this is a common question, it’s not one that has a single answer. Different people will proceed on the path of recovery at various speeds. Some may be ready to move forward in their addiction-free life after a few months. For others, it may be several months or even years. All that ultimately matters is that the progress is always forwards – not sideways or backwards.
5. How Can I Guard Against Relapse?
While it’s true that some people experience a relapse, there are proven strategies to minimize this possibility. For example, credible treatment facilities offer invaluable aftercare programs and relapse prevention classes, along with counseling and more.
