Alcohol or drug addiction is a disorder that affects your physical and mental health. Addiction may convince you that drinking and/or taking drugs is what your life needs, and that you therefore don’t need help. However, chronic alcohol consumption affects your health, relationships, and professional and social life. Cirrhosis of the liver, jaundice, stomach ulcer, loss of appetite, impotence, depression, anxiety and hallucination are just some of the health problems caused by addiction. Due to the difficulty in stopping drinking or using drugs on their own, many alcoholics and addicts need to get help at an addiction treatment center to once again get clean and sober.
People who do not suffer from addiction may wonder why you cannot stop drinking or abusing, even after you have lost everything, like career, education, family and health. You might have tried several ways to stop your addiction, but ended up failing. This is because addiction takes a hold of your mind, body, and spirit and requires professional help to break its bonds. The best addiction treatment center has highly trained professionals to help you come out of addiction. At Drug & Alcohol Rehab Asia, we diagnose the severity of your addiction and prescribe the right therapy and treatment for you to overcome addiction, and live a healthy and alcohol and drug free life.
Programs Offered By Addiction Treatment Centers
Detoxification: For some, detox is necessary. The withdrawal symptoms can be very uncomfortable and even dangerous when it comes to alcohol and benzodiazepines. Hence, when it’s needed, it is crucial to undergo detox under the care of a medical professional.
Prescribed medication is sometimes needed as part of your recovery program, and we will work with your current medical doctor and/or psychiatrist regarding this potential need. Medications help to stabilize the chemical balance of the brain that was disrupted by alcoholism or drug abuse, and may be needed for certain conditions, e.g., depression.
After detoxification, addiction treatment centers provide individual and group therapy. These sessions help deal with the underlying psychological issues associated with addiction. More often, such psychological issues cause the addict and alcoholic to use. Addressing these issues in treatment can help you acquire relapse prevention skills and maintain sobriety.
Once you have completed the treatment program, treatment centers arrange for an aftercare program to encourage and support you to stay sober.
