How Rehab Renews Sense of Self in Addicts

Addiction can strip a person of many different things in their life.  Not only can they lose their job, home, and family, but it can also become so severe that a person can lose their sense of self.  When a person has been using drugs or alcohol for a longevity, it can reach a point where they do not really recognize themselves when not under the influence.  Being under the influence becomes what is normal to them.

Fortunately, rehab can help to renew the sense of self in a person.  This can be done through several different methods, such as:

  • Sobriety – While this may seem obvious, there is a point to be made that simply a proper detox from substances can help to renew a person’s sense of self. Once off of the abused substances, the person may realize that they were virtually not themselves at all when using.
  • Therapy or Counseling – Therapy or counseling can help a person to work through very deep seated issues. It helps a person to sort through their thoughts and feelings and begin to get to know themselves once again.  They can look at the reasons why they began to use drugs or alcohol and how that began to mask who they are.  A person can realize that the influence of drugs or alcohol caused them to behave in a way that they never would while sober.
  • Setting Goals – The right rehab program helps a person to set goals for themselves in rehab and for after they released. This helps a person to realize what they truly want to achieve for themselves, and how they are going to do it.  Deciding upon and working toward their goals helps them to rebuild who they truly are and realize what they can do.  Many times, at a young age, people develop some kind of purpose, and it can get lost in the difficulties of life and substance abuse, but rehab can help to revitalize this.
  • Creative Therapies – Creative therapies, such as art or music therapy, can help a person to be able to communicate thoughts and feelings that they cannot necessarily articulate. Having an outlet to release these things can be very beneficial to the person letting go of things they have been holding onto.  Plus, they very well may find a hobby that they thoroughly enjoy and can use it to fill the time that had previously been spent using substances.
  • Building Self-Esteem – Drug or alcohol abuse can absolutely destroy a person’s self-esteem. They begin to think less of themselves or do not have the confidence to achieve things that they once did.  This can be compounded if a person attempts to get off of substances themselves and fails, as that can be very despairing.  Through different therapies, counseling, and achievements, a person’s self-esteem and confidence can begin to be raised markedly.

Best Drug Rehab Can Help

Anger

Dealing with Anger Post Rehab: Best Tips for Coping

There are many different negative emotions that can build up and arise during the course of addiction and recovery.  One of such that is very common is anger.  Many addicts have trouble knowing how to deal with anger, as well as how to appropriately express it. Often, the only way they know how to deal with it is by using drugs or alcohol to mask it.  Due to this, it is critical that recovering addicts learn how to cope with their anger, because if they do not, then it could end up in relapse.  Learning how to properly cope with anger and other negative emotions is one of the keys to long-term sobriety.

There are many different ways to begin to effectively cope with anger.  The end result, of course, being able to address these feelings without the use of substances.  These include:

  • Communication – Learn to effectively express your anger through proper communication. This means without being extremely defensive or assertive, or “flying off the handle” as the old saying goes.  This can be tough to adjust to, but it can be very productive.
  • Physical Release – Using physical means can be a very effective way to release anger. You can go for a run, go to the gym, or punch a punching bag or pillow.
  • Take a Step Back – If a fight or argument is becoming very heated, and you find yourself extremely angry, walk away for a little white. Stepping away for a bit allows you to cool off and then more calmly and rationally approach the situation.
  • Creative Approaches – Using creative methods to release anger can be very beneficial. Whether it be painting, writing, journaling, or music, these can all be effective ways to express anger through an alternative medium.
  • Avoid Negativity – While there can always be negativity in life, the situations or people you know that negatively affect you regularly should be avoided. Toxic people and situations can be detrimental to your sobriety and potentially lead to relapse.  So if they can be avoided, then it would be best to just stay away.
  • Breathing Exercises – A long used technique for anger has been breathing exercises. Simply, take some deep breaths to calm yourself down.  And while doing so, see if you can begin to understand the other person’s point of view.  This does not necessarily mean you have to force yourself to agree, but see if you can find a part of their viewpoint that you do understand.

As stated previously, learning to cope with anger is extremely vital to sobriety.  Some have trouble trying to manage it themselves and may need help.  This is where a professional rehab counselor could be very beneficial.  Not only can they provide additional coping techniques, but also can help you to discover the reasoning and cause behind your anger, and then assist in addressing that.  If a person has already done a rehab program but needs further assistance in this area, they could enroll in an outpatient program for continued counseling and help.

Personality Traits & Addiction

Are Certain Personality Traits Connected to Addiction Risk

There have been a multitude of efforts to discover and explain the root cause behind addiction.  Researchers have attempted to find a common underlying factor that would help to discover, prevent and handle addiction.  One attempt at this was the labeling of addictive personalities.  And while this concept does have some degree of workability, it has also been quite a controversial term.  It has been considered to be too broad and general of a term, and that it tends to convolute the subject rather than explains it.

There has been a shift over into looking at individual personality traits.  There have been several different personality traits which have been found to be common in many of those struggling with addiction.  These traits spread across the whole of addiction, rather than just to drugs or alcohol addiction.

These traits were found and confirmed to have existed through different studies.  Knowing of these different personality traits of addiction allows professionals to have predictive capabilities in regard to addiction.  While they can be beneficial in the prevention of addiction, they can also make recovery more complicated and difficult.

The traits found were:

  • Frustrated Easily
  • Impulsive – Acting without thinking
  • Increased Stress Response
  • Low Self Esteem
  • Lack of Self-confidence
  • Does not like delayed gratification
  • Difference – Feels different, socially isolated or alienated
  • Enjoys nonconformity and dislikes conformity
  • Perceives disrespect or insult sensitively

The Roles These Personality Traits Can Play In Recovery

These traits are not encompassing of all addicts, meaning not every addict is going to have these traits.  Rather, they have been observed commonly enough within many addicts to show that there is a connection.  As stated previously, they have predictive value for professionals to be able to catch addiction early on.  But, these traits can also cause a person to behave self-destructively and it is important to be able to recognize them in oneself, especially in recovery.  A person in recovery needs to be able to stay aware of these things in themselves so that they can better handle them.  While they can make recovery more difficult if let reign, they also do not have to control your life.  Being aware of them within yourself allows you to create strategies and plans to be able to circumvent their potentially detrimental effects.  Conversely, if these traits are allowed to influence a recovering individual’s life, relapse can come about quite quickly.  Hence, why it is so critical to properly manage these traits, or enlist the help of a counselor or therapist to assist in a plan for managing them.

Best Drug Rehabilitation Can Help Your Or Your Loved One With Addiction

The struggle with addiction can be an extremely difficult and arduous battle.  While this may be true, it is far from impossible to recover from addiction.  With the right treatment center and staff, addiction can be battled and overcome.  An important factor of successful addiction treatment is that it addresses the person as an individual.  Every person is different when it comes to their addiction and underlying issues, which means they have to be treated individually.  Here at Best Drug Rehabilitation, we tailor a program that is unique to every individual’s needs, which is why we have great success in the treatment of addiction.  Give us a call today; our advisors are standing by to answer any questions that you may have about our program.

Support Group

Recovery Support Group: Who Should be Involved in Your Sobriety

Addiction can take complete control over an individual’s life.  Fortunately, it can be overcome through proper addiction treatment.   Once an individual goes through treatment and achieves their sobriety, it can be very relieving and freeing.  But being released from rehab can either be something a person looks forward to or fears.  An individual comes from a lifestyle full of using substances, goes into a very safe environment that is conducive to their sobriety, and after departing from this stable facility, it can feel imposing to be able to confront the barriers and difficulties of day to day life.

This is where the importance of a proper recovery support group comes in.  What constitutes a proper recovery support group can be different for every person, as some may need more comprehensive support.  There are several different types of support that a person can reach to once out of treatment, such as:

  • Continued Treatment – There are several lower levels of treatment that a person in recovery can utilize to fortify their sobriety. Outpatient can be a great way to continue treatment when back in day to day life.  Outpatient will have set appointments that an individual can go to and take up any issues that they have experienced in recovery. Sometimes trying to jump right back into life may not be the best thing for an individual in recovery.  This is where transitional housing could be of great help.  Transitional housing, also called sober homes or halfway houses, allow an individual to stay in a more structured environment.  They will be residing with other people who are working to recover from their addiction and these people can be a great support group.
  • Professional Assistance – Individual professional assistance can be a great way to get support in transitioning back into life. One can seek an individual counselor or therapist to help them to continue to work through their addiction.  A person does not have to simply grin and bear it if they feel they need more help, as professional assistance can be very helpful.
  • 12 Step Groups – Attending 12 step meetings can be a simple way for a person to quickly build a support group once out of treatment. These groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous are full of people looking to stay clean from their addictions and help others to do the same.  You can work the steps yourself and the group can help to assist you in going through them.  Part of the 12 step system is an individual called a sponsor, and they will be there to help you personally.  A sponsor is another individual who has achieved sobriety and is in recovery and takes others under their wing to help them.
  • Loved Ones – Loved ones can provide some of the most valuable support out there for a person. They can be there to help guide and encourage a recovering individual.  Some people feel bad about leaning on their loved ones, but it is never shameful to let your loved ones help to support you.

Hiding Drugs

The Dangers of Being Dishonest About Your Addiction

There can be an easy transition from occasional substance use into addiction.  A person may begin to use more of a substance each time or use it more often and before they know it, they are using it every single day.  But the unfortunate aspect of this matter is that many individuals do not realize when it reaches this point, or they push away the truth with excuses.

Reasons Why Someone May Be Dishonest

While admitting addiction to yourself can be one of the hardest things to do, the alternative of being dishonest with yourself about an addiction can have disastrous consequences.  There are many reasons for why a person can be dishonest in regards to their addiction.  For instance, they could label it purely as a social activity and that they only do it when around friends or to have a good time.  The danger here is that justifying it like this allows them to continue the behavior.  Addiction can be very progressive and often times can become much worse.  Individuals may also be dishonest about how bad their use has become simply because they are not ready to admit it to themselves or their loved ones.  Whatever the reason may be, the reality is that doing this simply hinders them from being able to receive help.

The effects of addiction can detriment so many areas of a person’s life.  Those that continue to be dishonest with themselves about addiction often end up losing important things in their life.  This includes their job, family, home, or much more.  It can even end up in overdose when the use is extreme.  A person’s body can only tolerate so much, and when an individual is using high amounts of a substance they may overdo it.  Overdose can not only be very scary to go through, but it also can be extremely life threatening.

Being Honest With Yourself About Addiction

Being honest with yourself about addiction can be a very relieving thing to do.  It allows you to get support and help from loved ones, as well as receive any treatment that you might need.  Even though there can sometimes be a social stigma when it comes to addiction, public opinion is not what matters.  What is important is that you are able to receive help and overcome the hellacious grips of substance abuse.  Try and view how substance abuse has affected your life.  Whether it be spending too much money, damaging relationships, career issues, or withdrawal.  Make a list of things if necessary to help you view the overall effects.  Sometimes simply being real with yourself of how it has affected your overall life can be what is needed to make the first steps to overcoming it.  In the long run being dishonest about what is happening with your substance use does nothing but provide the potential for it to get worse, and for it to do more damage in your life.

Group Therapy

5 Types of Group Therapies Offered at Drug Rehabs

As addiction has continued to ravage our society nationally and globally, new methods of treating it have been developed over the years.  This is beneficial, as it has led to a multitude of different types of treatment that an individual can choose to pursue.  Due to that, they can use a type of treatment that is suitable for them in particular, rather than being forced into a type that they do not agree with.

Different methods of treatment can generally be sorted into a select few categories, one of which is group therapy.  The term group therapy can be very broad, but essentially it describes a type of therapy done along with others also working to recover from their addiction.  Different types of group therapy can include:

  1. Anger Management Groups – Addiction can involve a lot of built up aggression and anger in certain cases. Whether it be at life circumstances, family, other loved ones, or themselves.  Group anger management brings those struggling with these held onto emotions together to help relieve them.
  2. Group Art Therapy – There can be a cascade of emotions, thoughts, and considerations during addiction and recovery. It can be therapeutic to express these in several ways.  Many rehabs focus purely on speaking as being the only type of communication.  In reality, some struggling with addiction may have difficulty with that type of direct communication.  This is where Art Therapy can be extremely valuable, as it allows the person to express these emotions, thoughts, etc. through art, and without having to confront stating them directly.
  3. Music Therapy – Music therapy has been shown to have a multitude of benefits in the realm of addiction, as well as other areas. Not only does listening to music often have benefits, but learning to play it as well.  A person struggling with addiction generally spends a lot of their time using substances or being high.  By learning to play music, they are able to develop a hobby that possibly could be used to fill this void.  Music therapy also offers a creative outlet for feelings, thoughts, considerations and emotions.
  4. Martial Arts Therapy – Martial arts therapy helps largely in the physical realm, but it is also very beneficial in other areas as well. A person’s body can be in quite rough shape after being subjected to substance abuse for a longevity, but martial arts can help to build it back up.  It can improve muscle strength, flexibility, and balance.  Another major benefit of martial arts is the focus upon discipline, which helps a person develop a strong willpower in battling and recovering from their addiction.
  5. 12 Step – While not generally described or categorized as “group therapy,” 12 step is a form of treatment that is standardly done in groups. 12 step is the traditional type of program that most people know of when it comes to rehab.  The 12 steps are a set of tenets that were created to be followed by a person through their journey of recovery, and frequent meetings are held along with other people who are doing the same.  This way, the group can assist, encourage and guide each other upon their individual journeys through the steps.

Encouragement

5 Ways to Positively Affect a Loved One’s Addiction Recovery

Overcoming addiction and achieving one’s sobriety is one of the greatest accomplishments.  It takes tremendous courage and confront to be able to face the difficulties and issues that need to be addressed as part of it.  While they have achieved an amazing thing with overcoming addiction, recovery is something which needs to be continuously maintained throughout life.  This is where the loved one’s of the individual become very helpful in encouraging and promoting them in their recovery.

There is a multitude of things that loved ones can do to help encourage and positively affect a person’s recovery.  As the people that the recovering individual most closely associates with, you can have a very powerful positive influence within their life and can help to keep them in recovery.  Loved ones opinions and viewpoints can be highly valued by them and it is important to use this as a way to encourage them.  Ways to positively affect a loved one’s recovery could include:

  1. Offer Words of EncouragementWords of encouragement can be great to help the recovering person stay on the path. The reality is that recovery can sometimes be extremely difficult.  When cravings or triggers hit, encouraging the person can help them to maintain their sobriety and overcome these difficulties.
  2. Make Note of Improvements – If you notice marked positive changes in them or their behavior, then let them know about it. Small comments such as, “I noticed you have seemed much happier,” can help a person to realize that what they are doing is worth it and that they should continue on with it.
  3. Stay In Communication – Sometimes the individual in recovery just needs someone to talk to, whether it be about their recovery or not. Having loved ones that they can communicate with gives them positive people in their life that are supporting their recovery. They then also have someone to vent or talk to when times get rough.
  4. Encourage Rather Than Condemn – If the individual in recovery makes a bad choice, help them to realize there are better options, rather than condemning them for having erred. For instance, if they begin to associate with the old crowd that they were using drugs or alcohol with, you can encourage them to find a better group to associate with, rather than punishing or criticizing them for their negative choice.
  5. Monitor Your Own Behavior – While living with an individual in recovery, it can be beneficial to tweak certain behaviors of your own to help set a good example. This could include trying not to drink around them if they are in recovery from alcohol.  While this may require some lifestyle changes, it is very beneficial for you to assist in creating a good recovery environment for your loved one.

Drug dependency

Why Do People Develop a Physical Dependence to Drugs

Addiction is brought about in many different ways.  It can vary for each individual as to how and why they end up using and abusing drugs or alcohol.  But a generally common denominator with many substances is the physical dependency which they bring about within the body.  Physical dependency tends to be one of the more common reasons why an individual continues to consume a certain substance.

The Development of a Physical Dependence

While each substance has a wide variation of effects that it can produce on anyone’s body, the general way in which substances produce a physical dependence is uniform.  Since the body has a usual way of performing and operating, the introduction of any substance into the system throws it off, even if in a minute way.  When any drug or alcohol is introduced into the routine operation of the body, these processes are altered every time it is used.  As these processes continue to be altered and changed by the introduced substance, the body adjusts to compensate and then becomes used to it.

Ceasing to use the substance can then produce difficulties.  This is the way in which withdrawal comes about.  When the body no longer has a substance that it has become dependent upon as part of a general operation, it has difficulties functioning properly and produces physiological phenomena.

How Detox Helps to Get Past Physical Dependency

The physical dependencies of certain drugs and alcohol can be so severe that it can be extremely dangerous for individuals to attempt to come off of them without proper medical supervision.  This is where the importance of a proper drug and alcohol detox center comes into play.  At an equipped detox center, the person will be monitored and supplemented to ease withdrawal, which allows them to safely detox off of the substance.  This is often times done with certain applicable medications.  There are medications that work as a wean down from certain substances, which allows the body to gradually adjust to no longer having the previous drug.  The person is given lower and lower dosages of these medications until they are no longer on them, and the body is functioning properly without substances.

Unfortunately, there are also substances that do not have medications to replace them during detox, but a proper detox center has ways to help ease the person’s pain and withdrawal as their body comes off of the substance.  Remember that heavy physical dependencies can be extremely dangerous, and when detox is attempted without proper supervision and care, it can result in effects as extreme as death.  This is why a proper detox is so critical for a person to safely come off of substances.

Taking the First Steps Toward Sobriety

Achieving sobriety is one of the most fulfilling things that an addict can do, although taking the first steps toward achieving this can be difficult.  It often takes a proper detox and rehabilitation program to help a person to confront their difficulties and overcome them.  Here at Best Drug Rehabilitation, we work to treat every person as a unique individual.  Everyone has particular issues and difficulties that need to be addressed as part of treating addiction, which is why a cookie cutter approach tends to be lacking in success.  Our detox center and rehab facility are both fully equipped to help individuals overcome the burden of drug or alcohol addiction.  Give Best Drug Rehabilitation a call today and let us help you or your loved one achieve sobriety.

How to Be Honest with Yourself About Your Addiction

A person admitting that they are struggling with an addiction is one of the hardest things they could ever do.  Aside from admitting it to others, one thing that many have to go through the barrier of and overcome is the admitting and accepting it themselves.  It can be difficult to admit to yourself that the substance has overcome you, or the severe dependence that you have developed to it.

Someone can be dishonest in regard to their addiction for many different reasons.  It can be a mechanism to avoid admitting it to themselves, as well as others.  They can justify it by saying they do not use that much, it is just a social activity, or that it has not reached the point of a full blown addiction yet.

There are things you can do that can help you to be more honest with yourself in regard to your addiction.  Some of these could be:

  • Listing things you have neglected over your substance use
  • Look at how much you truly use
  • Make a list of ways it has affected your life
  • Total up how much you spend upon the substance
  • Look over characteristics of addiction online
  • Pay attention to what your loved ones say about it

Being honest with yourself in regard to your addiction can be one of the most positive things you can do.  It is the first step in the right direction.  There are several tenets within different treatment programs that state it in different ways, such as the first point of the 12 Step philosophy.  When you can be honest with yourself about your addiction, it allows you to make the changes necessary to improve it and get sober.  After all, you need to be able to admit and accept it yourself before it can helped by anything such as treatment.

The Dangers of Being Dishonest With Yourself

Not being honest with yourself about your addiction can generally only lead to further harm to you and possibly even those around you as well.  Addiction tends to be progressive, meaning it simply gets worse over time rather than improving.  People who are not being honest with themselves about their addiction could end up losing their job, family, or even overdosing.  Those who continue to be dishonest with themselves, or are in denial, simply detriment themselves by not receiving help, as well as furthering the danger they are putting themselves in.

While there can be a bit of a public stigma regarding addiction, the public opinion is not what matters.  What matters is that your loved ones will be there to support and encourage your recovery, and that you will be able to better yourself.  Even those who are being dishonest with themselves often recognize deep down what they are doing and how it is hurting them.  Do not ever be afraid or ashamed to seek addiction treatment, as it is extremely courageous and brave to do so.  Overcoming an addiction is an accomplishment that you can be proud of for the rest of your life, as it is no easy task, but it is far from impossible.

Free Addiction Treatment: Do You Qualify and Should You Trust the Program

Those who are homeless, in poverty, or low income families can have an extremely difficult time when it comes to addiction affecting them.  The extant difficulties of finances coupled with substance abuse can compound their struggles tenfold.  For some in this situation, treatment does not even seem like an option.  The reality is that there are a few different options for the individuals that are struggling with financial difficulties.

State Funded Addiction Treatment

Each state generally offers its own free treatment resources.  There can be varying requirements, or qualifications between states that can determine which individuals are able to attend these treatment centers.  Some states are going to have centers that have priorities that they will accept into treatment prior to receiving any other individuals.  This is generally limited to those at more critical risk, such as pregnant women, or IV users.  Generally, most states require proof of inability to pay, as well as lack of insurance to be accepted into free treatment.

There are also religious organizations that will often times offer their own types of addiction treatment services, some of which are free.  These could include organizations such as Salvation Army and Harbor Light.  Many of these are kept running through fundraising or other efforts to produce funds for them.  These can have their own set of requirements or qualifications necessary to be admitted into the program.  This could include factors such as age group, or whether the person is a member of the religious group associated with the treatment center.  Not all faith based treatment centers are free of charge so verify this before admitting yourself or a loved one into one of these treatment centers.

Free treatment centers can vary widely in what kind of services they offer.  Some will offer full residential treatment programs, while others may only offer outpatient, or medication assisted treatment.  Some free treatment centers will not offer detox as part of their program, which can be vital for addicts of certain drugs.  When reviewing free treatment centers, it is important to look over what exactly they offer before going into the program.  Being that addicts abusing certain drugs, or heavier users may need more intensive treatment, types such as outpatient may not cut it for them.

The Reliability of Free Treatment

Many wonder upon the quality of these free treatment programs.  While the reality is that any treatment is obviously better than no treatment, free centers can tend to be lacking in comparison to other types of treatment centers.  While a person with no other options is absolutely better seeking these than no treatment at all, other treatment facilities should be looked into as well.  Centers that take insurance or offer some type of financing many times offer much better success rates, as well as better facilities.  Since most free treatment centers are going to offer less comprehensive programs, and sometimes only one type of treatment, they tend to have less success.  Whereas, other certain facilities can offer full programs with multiple types of treatment to fully address an individual’s addiction.

If you or a loved one are seeking help with an addiction, let us assist you in finding the ideal treatment center.  There are many treatment centers across the country so it can be difficult to find the one that fits you or your loved one best.  Our advisors are knowledgeable and experienced in the treatment types and treatment centers across the country.  Give us a call today and we will help find the perfect private inpatient treatment center for yourself or a loved one.
