'If a person is to remain on the path of overcoming addiction, it is important that they completely remove any drugs or alcohol from their lives,' said Best Drug Rehabilitation founder and CEO Per Wickstrom.

Those who have been through the process of recovery from addiction, or may know someone who is struggling with dependency issues, might find some helpful advice in Best Drug Rehabilitation’s recent blog post that discusses the importance of complete abstinence in recovery. After a recent analysis of a 2014 study, which highlighted a correlation between marijuana use and increased rates of relapse among those in recovery, the open-ended holistic treatment center for addiction has released scientific evidence and professional advice on remaining clean and sober after completing a treatment program.
“If a person is to remain on the path of overcoming addiction, it is important that they completely remove any drugs or alcohol from their lives,” said Best Drug Rehabilitation founder and CEO Per Wickstrom. “Offering guidance and education is a vital part of fulfilling our commitment to giving our patients the help that they need with every step that they take on the path to recovery. By focusing on the current science in the field of addiction treatment, we can give strength and spread knowledge to others that might be struggling with substance abuse in their lives.”
Problems in Addiction Recovery
The blog post discusses some of the problems that a person going through recovery might be facing, in particular, the “over-confidence” that one might have after completing a treatment program. One of the biggest causes of relapse among those struggling with compulsive behaviors is believing that they can now control their addiction, and that they can have “just a few” and be fine. The Best Drug Rehabilitation blog post strongly asserts that this is simply not true, and gives advice on how to avoid that sense of over-confidence and remain substance-free.
The blog post also touches on Drug Replacement Therapy, where an addiction to a certain chemical is “treated” by replacing it with another chemical. This can be clinical, as in the case of methadone clinics, or self-administered, where a person uses alcohol, marijuana or other substances to help fight the cravings for their drug of choice. Best Drug Rehabilitation is a substance abuse treatment center that focuses on helping their patients to discover ways to face life’s problems and obstacles without using drugs or alcohol. Without using any sort of drug replacement therapy, the program at BDR is designed to help their patients to uncover and address the underlying causes of their addiction, and to understand the personal responsibility that they hold in maintaining sobriety.
