Give Up Drug Habit Through A Drug Rehab

By: John Porter

Who is to be blamed for the increasing number of drug affected patients day-by-day? The social circumstances or is it your incapability to meet the rising expectations? Several such other reasons can also determine this gruesome situation that the whole world is facing today.

Getting addicted to drugs is indeed a curse. But leaving the patient to die is no solution. If a proper direction is given to the drug addict, won't he or she at least give an attempt to give up? The bigger problem lies with us who claim to be normal human beings. We ignore these victims of drugs and abandon them. And we do a bigger crime.

Why don't you and me help a drug addict by just taking him to the doors of a good drug rehabilitation center?

Know about drug rehab programs in depth

Drug rehab programs can be broadly categorized in two parts: the long duration programs where the patients stay for a large extent of time to get cured. And of course there is a short duration program helping out the patients with time to time counseling and medication.

Long duration programs

The name itself speaks aloud the time period. What type of drug addicts needs this particular assistance? Individuals who have already become chronic users of drugs and can't generate determination from within should be brought to a long duration program. Many a time it has been traced out that these patients have other ill records of crime.

Therapeutic treatments are must in treating these types of patients. Methadone therapy is quite effective in bringing down the wild urge to have drugs. Methadone is actually a medicine but the dose has to be fixed as per the patient's requirement. The initial dose has to be high to bring the patient under control and gradually it has to be lowered and substituted by other means of curing process. Generally such therapies continue for at least a year's time.

Short duration programs

The short duration program can be of a month's time and at the most exceed up to six months. In this treatment process medicinal therapies are not dominant. Individual counseling of the patient for psychological backup to revive a normal life is organized at quick interval of time. The changes in the meantime are closely observed. The positive indications in the changes show the patient's positive graph of recovery. But once the treatment is over, the patient must be kept under strict supervision. The doors to the dark world are always opened. May God help them not to take up one such path once again.
