Help for Drug Addiction
Addiction is a disease that involves both biological and behavioral components. It has a high rate of relapse, anywhere from 40 and 60 percent. Although the chance of relapse sounds high, it is comparable to other conditions requiring lifelong maintenance, such as diabetes and heart disease.
Alcohol or drug abuse recovery is possible; it just takes the right motivation, treatment, and support. If you or a loved one is struggling with a drug addiction, it can be difficult to know how to get the right help for drug and alcohol addiction. Dealing with addiction is stressful, and many people are at a loss about the best way to help or get help. Drug Treatment and Rehab Centers (DTRC) will make it easy for you to get the addiction recovery help you need for yourself or your loved one.
DTRC offers state-of-the-art, evidence-based treatment for drug addiction, as well as mental health disorders, and dual diagnosis. We have implemented numerous customer service initiatives to streamline the admission process and make it simple to receive treatment for addiction.

How to Recognize When Someone has a Problem
Recognizing a problem is often one of the biggest impediments to overcoming drug addiction or alcoholism. People often fail to identify a problem in themselves because they live in denial and are not ready to accept the help they need. People also have difficulty recognizing drug problems in their loved ones. This could be due to the addict adeptly hiding the signs of drug use, or it could be lack of awareness or denial on the part of the enabler. Looking for the signs and symptoms of drug use can help a person confirm that a problem exists. You can learn more about the signs and symptoms of drug use here. Once you realize there is a problem, it is time to discuss it and find the right treatment program.
Sometimes, talking to a person about his or her drug problem does not make any difference. Then it may be time for an intervention. An intervention is a carefully staged event with several of the addict’s loved ones confronting him or her about the behaviors that concern them. It forces a person to come face to face with the problem and hopefully enter treatment. There are professional interventionists who assist in the process, although it can be done without one. An intervention does not always work; however, it is one way to try to motivate a person to seek the help he or she needs. More importantly, it breaks the enabling system and offers support and help for those affected by the problem.
Where Can you Get Help for Drug Addiction?
There are many different treatment options, and which one to choose depends on the severity of the addiction and other aspects of the situation. A person may just need to see a therapist and attend support group meetings, such as Narcotics Anonymous (NA). Although this provides some help and support, studies have shown that intensive treatment offers the best chance for recovery and reduces the risk of relapse.
There are different levels of intensive treatment. Addicts can enter residential treatment, where they live at a facility and spend all day in treatment. They can also go through partial hospitalization, where they have the same intensive treatment during the day but remain at home. There are also intensive outpatient programs, where a person can remain at home and continue his or her school or work but go to treatment for 10-12 hours a week. A person can also go through a continuum of care, which involves a step-down process from the most intense to the least. Some drug and alcohol addiction rehab facilities, such as DTRC, offer the full continuum of care, including an aftercare program, for patients.
Support for Finding the Right Treatment
It can be a struggle to find the right treatment facility. Dealing with an addiction problem, whether it is yourself or a loved one with the problem, is stressful. Finding a facility should not add to the stress and concerns with which you struggle. At DTRC, we offer help for drug abuse and alcohol addiction from the first contact to make the process as easy as possible. We accept most private insurance plans, so we can usually find an affordable option. Our Admissions team will discuss your situation and find the right treatment option for your situation, as well as create an upfront financial package to work with your budget. We have case managers that follow each patient and ensure he or she gets the help they need, and a dedicated patient advocate who works on behalf of the patients when there is a problem. We also have a concierge who interacts with the family, when appropriate and consent is provided.
