Drug Rehabilitation: The Five-Step Procedure

By: John Porter

If five fingers are closed together, they take the shape of the fist. The fist is always stronger than that of the individual finger. In the same way to fight back drug addiction, you must apply the five-step procedure together at a time to get better results. If you take a close record of the success rate you will find that the basic part of each of the rehabilitation program is associated with these steps.

Psychological encouragement is the best tonic

Leaving apart the medication side, the treatment program of any drug rehabilitation process comprises of psychological healing. Several therapies and counseling processes are conducted to provide the psychological boost. Do you know what are the primary factors that can lead to a successful counseling process and show positive results?

Proper communication: The biggest crisis a drug addict faces is unable to communicate. A proper mode of communication will allow the drug addict come up with everything he has in the deepest corners of his mind. His outburst is very essential for his treatment. Once he admits to his problem areas, the curing process can be accordingly fixed up and carried ahead. The counselor and even the family members should communicate with humbleness and try to keep the situation in control this helps a lot to facilitate the treatment procedure.

Make them feel their responsibility: Don't allow the person suffering from addiction entirely rest on your shoulders. Let them stand up on their own spine and be concerned about their responsibilities. Well this cannot happen in a day but after some time when the patient starts feeling better in the rehab environment the sense of being responsible for one's own deeds must be gradually built up.

Blaming is no solution: Who is to be blamed for anyone involving into such ill practices? Is it only the person himself liable for this situation? Is the society responsible? If we start categorizing each one's mistake then the list will become an unending one and at the end of the day this won't fetch any solution to anyone. Yes the sense of responsibility must be grown in the patient and without accusation and threats the right way should be shown.

Shower love: Love can change the whole world. Thus don't show sympathy but shower love on these drug abusers because they need your encouragement and support to leave this practice.

Sense of forgiveness: The rehabilitation program should not carry any sense of grievance towards the patients who come for the treatment. They should be fed as human beings and a sense of forgiveness towards them has to be shown. And that must come from the heart.
