Should Addicts Avoid Rehab During the Virus?

The rising concerns over COVID-19 have all of us wondering what is safe and what isn’t.  Social distancing is an unprecedented precaution taking place in our nation today. We’re told to avoid crowds and stay home if possible. These guidelines challenge our sense of togetherness and normalcy.  Many of us will miss dining out with friends, attending sports events, concerts, gyms, bars, and the zillion other crowded venues we love. We also wonder about the safety of necessary gatherings such as doctor visits, shopping for […]

Misunderstood Facts About Drug Rehab

Most people realize that rehab is a process that helps someone overcome addiction, but they know very little about what takes place in the facilities. Their knowledge about rehab is often based on what they saw in a movie.

Learn to Live Sober

How do you learn to live sober when you have lived most of your adult life high either on drugs or alcohol? It’s not easy to do. If you are lucky enough to get help and overcome drug or alcohol addiction through a treatment program in a  rehabilitation facility, you will start a new life.  Once you leave rehab, you start your new life of sobriety with much self-doubt and sometimes even fear.

Avoiding Relapse After Rehab

You have completed a treatment program in an inpatient addiction rehabilitation facility. Now you are faced with transitioning to your new life of sobriety without being in a structured and safe environment. Facing your new life can be a time of self-doubt and worry. Will you be able to avoid the temptation that is sure to pop up and can you avoid triggers which may make you want to use drugs again? Here, we will discuss some tips for avoiding relapse after rehab in an […]

Relapse is a surprisingly normal part of the recovery process that’s often seen as a sign of failure by the patient. The truth is that relapse is more of a temporary setback rather than a reason to throw in the towel and consider treatment unsuccessful. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, relapse rates for people with addictions are similar to relapse rates for chronic conditions like high blood pressure. Some studies place the odds of relapse after rehab as high as 85 percent; […]

Short-Term Inpatient Drug Rehab

According to many experts, the longer an addict remains in a treatment program, the better.  Of course, this applies primarily to the individuals who have abused drugs for a prolonged period.  It also holds true for those who have a co-occurring disorder that requires attention.  In these situations, a long-term inpatient program is the best option for gaining lasting recovery.  But, there are some instances where short-term inpatient drug rehab or 30-day inpatient drug rehab is enough. One common misconception among addicts is that they […]

State-Funded Rehab

Treatment of alcohol or drug addiction can seem overwhelming. A stay in a qualified rehab facility is the most direct course to long-term success, yet the cost of a stay in rehab can be out of reach for those with low incomes and/or no insurance. To make sure that treatment is available when it is needed, there are public assistance options like state-funded rehab that can offer these people the financial support they need to detox and begin the recovery process. These options range from […]

Private Addiction Treatment

The United States of America and her people are now living through the worst period of drug abuse and addiction problems in our nation’s history. The addiction rates for nearly all commonly addictive drugs are well up compared to previous years, but by far the worst culprit in the moment is prescription opioid painkillers and thereby other opiates such as heroin. This situation has been dubbed the “opioid crisis” and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has declared it the worst drug […]

Minnesota Model of Addiction Treatment

Over the course of history, substance abuse and drug addiction have always been a problem. Never has this been more true than now, with addiction to opiates, and drug addiction in general at all-time highs. The last century or two have seen the discovery and production of more and more potent and addictive narcotic substances with the rise of cocaine, heroin, and many others. More modernly, we have seen many prescription drugs appear on the market and many drugs that were at first deemed “safe” […]
