Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 27, 2014
Chicago IL Alcohol Drug Rehab is announcing that a new long-term residential treatment program for adults and adolescents seeking professional help for their drug addiction is now available in Chicago and other cities around the Chicagoland area.
A drug addict that makes the decision to enter a treatment program is like a battle-scarred soldier waving the white flag of surrender. Drugs like marijuana, barbiturates, cocaine, Xanax, heroin and others might have been fun for a long time. Yet the addict realizes that the life he or she once knew is not around anymore. It has been ripped apart through the power of addiction. So when the adult or adolescent comes into the Chicago residential treatment facility, they are ready to start life all over again.
Through getting involved in their own recovery process, people in the treatment program learn skills and techniques so they can leave drug use in the past. At first, the facility's medical staff will take an incoming client and perform a thorough medical examination. This provides a baseline from which any long-term treatment plan begins. Each individual will have different needs. Based on the staff's experience, they will know what direction to take.
The clinic offers a fully comprehensive program. It involves detoxification, individual and group therapy, physical activities, studying the nature of addiction, and attending 12-step meetings. Over time, clients rediscover and reclaim their own lives. They work through emotional, physical and mental issues that led them to abusing drugs. In the program, alcohol addiction, which co-exists with drug abuse many times, receives attention too.
Long-term treatment offers an extended level of care and support before people re-enter the "real world" and start their new lives. Another cornerstone of the plan is aftercare. Center staff members truly believe that if a person develops a solid life plan while in treatment, then the success rate of staying clean and sober remains on the upswing for years to come.
