Successful drug and alcohol rehabilitation consist of 3 major phases
We found that a lot of people feel confused when it come to drug and alcohol treatment.
To understand the problem of addiction and to deliver a workable solution, one has to understand the 3 phases of a successful rehabilitation.
1) The first phase is called WITHDRAWAL
Withdrawal is the length of time it takes the person, while no longer using drugs or alcohol, to recover from the effects of them. During this time span the person normally feels some kind of discomfort. The phase of withdrawal normally lasts 3 to 7 days.
2) The second phase is called DETOXIFICATION
One definition of detoxify is: To extract poison or toxins from = detoxification
As you may already know, drugs and alcohol are poison/toxins. Too much of it will kill a person. Unfortunately, drugs residues stay in the body (fatty tissues) for years after use and can affect a person at a later time.
Detoxification from drugs is an important part of the success of any treatment.
Substituting one drug with another is not detoxification.
Detoxification is normally done within 3 to 5 weeks.
3) Phase three is the actual REHABILITATION
The dictionary says about rehabilitation:
rehabilitate: To put back in good condition
In the true sense of the word, rehabilitation would mean to restore something that has been lost. In the field of drug and alcohol abuse it would mean to give the person his/her self respect back and to make him/her feel like a valuable member of society.
