Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 04, 2013
A Chicago treatment center dealing with drug and alcohol addiction is pleased to announce it has launched a new video regarding its services in Chicago and surrounding cities at Drug Addiction Treatment Centers. These towns include Oak Park, LaGrange, Evanston, Wheaton, Naperville, and Des Plaines.
Alcohol detoxification is a process by which a heavy drinker's system is brought back to normal after being used to having alcohol in the body on a continual basis. Serious alcohol addiction results in a decrease in production of GABA, a reuptake inhibitor, because alcohol acts to replace it. Precipitous withdrawal from long-term alcohol addiction without medical management can cause severe health problems and can be fatal. Alcohol detox is not a treatment for alcoholism. After detoxification, other treatments must be undergone to deal with the underlying addiction that caused the alcohol use.
Drugs and alcohol, either separately or combined, form a potent concoction of addiction. The treatment center helps people put their addictive lifestyles in their past.
Drug Addiction Treatment Centers offers a collective style of treatment options for clients. The clinical staff wants to help all clients leave the addiction treatment center with a better way of dealing with life's issues.
In Chicago, entering the rehab center gives clients a new chance to be responsible members of society. They come to find themselves, discover new levels of self-esteem, and a spirituality that works.
An initial step is detoxification from all mind-altering substances. This is overseen by a well-trained medical staff, making sure clients are supported, guided and nurtured through these initial hours and days free from their drug of choice.
This is followed by counseling and therapy. Learning to navigate through everyday life without drugs and alcohol is like giving someone traveling through different states and/or nations a map and directions. Adults and adolescents will understand that this is a process, one that is not over in a matter of days. The treatment center helps people rebuild their lives from the inside out.
Once people leave the treatment center, outpatient care and support is strongly suggested by counselors. Transitioning back into the “real world” takes time, too, and outpatient treatment allows clients an opportunity to share their victories and struggles with like-minded people. When it’s all put together, from detoxification to outpatient care, the substance abuse treatment center gives people a second chance.
