Drug Rehab in South Portland

Struggling with any kind of drug addiction is a hefty burden to carry, and one which comes with many consequences if left unresolved. Individuals with the very best of intentions who want to stop typically try and do so many times over with no success, and wind up just falling deeper into a life of addiction. There are factors why persons cannot quit on their own, and these causes are what make drug rehab in South Portland a more helpful and verified method of resolving drug addiction.

The benefits of a drug rehab in South Portland consist of having the support and tools at hand to handle any problems and challenges that may come up in the course of detox and withdrawal, as well as the chance to address the real troubles that triggered drug addiction which are normally not physical ones at all. For example, many people become involved in substance abuse to mask and stay away from serious problems in their lives. If one only tries to overcome the physical urges and such on one's own, they really aren't making any headway at truly resolving the psychological and emotional issues, that once resolved, will assure long-term sobriety.

Once a particular person comes to terms with the fact that they need help to resolve drug addiction, the next action is selecting the appropriate drug rehab for them. Some drug rehabilitation programs don't call for any type of inpatient stay and offer services on an outpatient basis for example. At this form of drug rehab the person gets treatment throughout the day and returns home in the evening. While this form of drug rehab may seem convenient, it will not provide the proper treatment environment for a person who needs to step away from drug influences and other circumstances which could compromise one's sobriety. The most established and helpful treatment settings are those which call for an inpatient or residential stay, so that the individual can focus entirely on bettering themselves and healing from addiction, not on every day distractions and drug addiction triggers.

For example, somebody or some situation in one's environment could be the real trigger of one's drug use. If the particular person returns to this each day while in drug rehab, all gains will be lost and most will typically relapse. There are also various lengths of stay even in inpatient and residential drug rehab programs, with treatment curriculums varying from 30 days to up to a year for some. As a rule of thumb, an individual who is set on fixing addiction problems once and for all should remain in drug rehab as long as it takes. A month in treatment is barely enough time to even recover physically from persistent substance abuse. A significant amount of time is necessary, even months in some instances, to benefit from intensive therapy and other treatment tools to heal psychologically and emotionally so that one can really make a clean start once treatment is finished.

The cost of drug rehab can fluctuate substantially of course, depending on the amenities provided, length of stay, etc. While price should never be an impediment to getting life-saving treatment in drug rehab, it is a logistic that some may have concern over. After all, addiction tends to exhaust all assets and it can be tricky to pay for drug rehab when the time comes. Thankfully, most private drug rehabilitation programs accept many kinds of private health insurance as well as Medicare and Medicaid. Some drug rehabilitation programs will even work with individuals to either offer payment assistance or provide a sliding fee scale based off of one's income and individual circumstances. Addicted persons and their family members will find that treatment counselors are more than prepared to help provide solutions and support to get the logistical and financial problems resolved so that these are not a hurdle to getting the individuals started in drug rehab.

If a person you know is addicted to drugs but will not readily accept the offer to go to drug treatment, drug interventions are a last ditch yet successful method of helping persuade them to do so. Drug treatment programs in South Portland work closely with professional drug interventionists who are skilled and experienced in getting men and women to treatment efficiently. An intervention is a tool which can assist drug addicted individuals see past the immediate need to satiate their drug behavior, and realize the gift that is being offered to them which can help them make a healthier and successful life for themselves.

If you or somebody you know would like help, contact a treatment counselor at a drug rehab to get any concerns answered and any assistance needed to get the course of action started right away. The sooner the particular person is in drug rehab, the faster they can be back in the game of life and winning.
