Being in the grips of a substance abuse problem is devastating to one’s life. And this is not just for the person with a drug or alcohol addiction, but also for the entire community. Since addiction has been recognized as a chronic illness, it is now easier to find treatment and help. That said, the journey to recovery is long and hard, but certainly also a journey worth taking.

Finding Help for Addiction in Malden, MA

In most cases, addicted people do not seek the treatment they need until they go through an intervention. This can be organized by friends, family members, colleagues, or medical professionals, or it can even be court-ordered. It is a myth that people cannot get help until they want to get help or admit that they need it, so how somebody enters rehab is almost irrelevant, so long as it is done.

Before receiving treatment through inpatient or outpatient rehab facilities, however, patients must first go through a period of detox. This means that they rid themselves of the remaining chemicals and toxins in their body, and this period is usually accompanied by substantial withdrawal symptoms. These are rarely dangerous, but they are highly uncomfortable and many people cave in, at which point their risk of overdose is heightened. This is why it is so important that detox is properly supervised by medical and addiction professionals.

In rehab treatment, whether inpatient or outpatient, recovering patients have the opportunity to take part in one-to-one and group counseling and therapy. Where appropriate, family therapy is also offered, enabling people to rebuild their support networks. Exactly what type of therapy is offered, at what intensity, and how often depends on the individual. Indeed, it is key that all treatment is personalized to the needs of each patient.

Finally, extensive aftercare support must be offered. Numerous tools exist for this, including group support meetings, 12 step programs, sober living facilities, drug testing, and more. This is designed to help people stay on the road to recovery, and to provide them with a safety net if and when they relapse. Relapse is very common and does not signal a failure of treatment.
