Steps to your recovery:
- Drug Detoxification
- Drug Rehabilitation
- Drug After Care and Maintenance
Drug detoxification is the first step towards sobriety. This is when your body is adapting to no longer being dependent upon drugs. During this process, withdrawal symptoms—both physical and emotional—will emerge, especially in the first 7-10 days. Physical withdrawal symptoms include:
- Difficulty breathing
- Muscle Tension
Emotional withdrawal symptoms include:
It is important that trained medical personnel oversee this step of the process, as withdrawal symptoms can be extreme. Though it may seem easier at first to detox on your own, allowing a team to walk alongside you during this process will produce the safest, most long-lasting results. It is important to remember that each symptom will eventually pass, and recognize that you are one step closer to recovery.
During this step, patients move forward to retrain their mind and habits in order to find sustainable, long-term recovery. This step of the process can be customized to fit the unique needs of each individual. This may include holistic therapy—practices focused on a healthy mind, body, and soul—or behavior therapy that deals with the patient’s behavior, feelings, and thoughts. Rehabilitation programs can last from 30 days to a year based on the patient’s needs.
This step in the process is a lifelong pursuit of wholeness. Because sobriety does not happen by itself, lifelong maintenance and implementation of the skills and habits learned in rehabilitation is essential. Support groups as well as supportive family and friends will be key to holding you accountable and reminding you of the hard work you accomplished in detox and rehab. It is possible for someone dealing with substance abuse to one day become a healthy, active, and productive member of society if they are willing to put in the time and hard work.
