Drug Alcohol Rehab Now

Drug and alcohol rehab share many similarities since they are both based on some form of substance addiction. Drug and alcohol treatment generally focuses on abstinence unlike other forms of rehab, such as for eating disorders, which focus on moderation. Also, with drug and alcohol treatment there is usually a detox period at the beginning, to rid one's body of the toxic substances.

I know what you're thinking, "Not another addiction rehab website!" Well, this one is different. Besides presenting "just the facts" information, this site also strives to be hip and relevant as well. Yes, at times we will speak like, "Drug and alcohol addiction crosses all cultural and socio-economic boundaries," which is the politically correct way to say it doesn't matter if you're rich, poor or of a different race or group, substance abuse is part of your life, like it or not.

We try to keep the analytical, textbook, PC language down to a minimum when talking about addiction and rehab since this kind of language puts off many people. Our hope on this website is to speak in plain language in regards to information about the facts of drug and alcohol addiction and rehabilitation, thus remaining relevant to most of our readers.

This site is dedicated to substance abuse rehab centers and treatment models, information and programs, though we define rehab loosely so that treatment not only includes formal rehabilitation centers, but also 12-Step groups, family, friends, reading, research, message boards, dietary changes and whatever other changes that will help a person overcome and then manage their addiction.

The use of the word "rehab" implies using all of one's personal, spiritual and support tools to deal with substance abuse.

Now, that that's been said, we do have a couple of sections on substance abuse rehab centers as this is what it will take for many to kick-start their personal recovery treatment programs. Just like drug and alcohol addiction is an individual disease that affects many, rehab from addiction is also an individual process that works better when you can share your individual struggles with others in a similar situation. Just because addiction is individual doesn't mean you have to be alone in treatment. This is the part that is confusing to many.

Consider a team sport such as baseball, basketball, football or soccer. A favorable outcome depends on both individual effort and working as a team. The same can be said of addiction recovery. The addict needs to make an individual effort, but working in a team setting is also very helpful. The addict can also work as a team member to help others as well. Many find service to others to be of grea personal benefit.

It is often said that we are only as sick as our secrets. Alcohol and drug addiction is no different. Part of rehab is breaking the cycle of silence that keeps many trapped in the disease process. By talking and sharing with others who support your rehab process, inside and outside of treatment, there is hope, strength and recovery.
