1. What Is Drug Rehab?

Drug Rehab is an Addiction Treatment Programs that will help you “Kick the Habit” and get you off of Drugs. Drug Rehab will help Addicts regain a Healthy and Sober lifestyle. It doesn’t matter whether you’re Addicted to Illegal Drugs like Meth or Heroin or Prescription Painkillers, we can help you.

2. What Happens in Drug Rehab?

Treatment in Drug Rehab depends on the individual’s health, what Drug they’re Addicted to and whether they choose Inpatient Drug Rehab or Outpatient Rehab. However, in most cases, Rehabilitation usually involves a combination of Detox, Substance Abuse Counseling and Ongoing Therapy.


The first step in addiction rehab is Detoxification. During Detox, the Body goes through Substance Withdrawal Syndrome. Usually, Withdrawal is a very unpleasant experience, but with the proper treatment in a Medically Supervised Detox Program the discomfort and risks associated with the Detox process will be Reduced and even Eliminated.

Substance Abuse Counseling

The next step in the Treatment will include Daily Behavioral Therapy. Individuals in Rehab participate in Group and/or Individual Therapy Sessions to recognize and address the underlying causes of their Addiction. Treatment Programs also educate individuals on how to identify High-Risk Situations and Triggers, and develop Relapse Prevention Skills to maintain Long-Term Sobriety.

Ongoing Therapy

Even though the Formal Part of Drug Rehab is finished, Staff will develop a Plan to ensure your Continued Success. This may include Support Groups, Ongoing Therapy, and Sober Living Arrangements, if needed.

3. How Long Does Drug Rehab Take?

Most Rehab Facilities offer 30-Day Programs. However, some individuals benefit from longer treatment programs, such as 60-Day, 90-day, or even Longer-Term Treatment at Residential or Inpatient Treatment Centers. It all depends on a persons History and Severity of the Addiction, Specific Substances used, any Co-Occurring Medical, Mental, or Behavioral Health Conditions, and the Physical, Mental, Emotional, Social, Cultural, and Spiritual needs of the Individual.

Generally, those who spend three months or longer in Treatment Programs usually achieved Long-Term Sobriety more often. It can take longer than 30 days to find the Root Causes and Behaviors behind the Addiction and that’s why these Inpatient Treatment Programs are more successful.

4. Does Rehab Cure Addiction?

There is no Cure For Addiction, but it can be managed effectively. Regardless of its duration, Drug Addiction Recovery doesn’t conclude after the patient completes a Rehabilitation Program. Recovery from Substance Use is an ongoing, lifelong process. Managing an Addiction involves learning how to Navigate through Daily Life without Using and involves hard work and dedication.

5. What Happens If I Relapse?

Relapse should not be viewed as a Failure but should instead be seen as an Obstacle To Overcome on one’s Lifelong Journey To Sobriety. It provides an opportunity to reassess one’s path and get back into a Program that offers the support and help needed to Maintain Sobriety.

Many people who are struggling with Addiction complete more than one Stay in Rehab before they are able to find their footing in their Recovery Journey. The only person who can manage your Addiction is You, and Rehab will help you build the Skills Necessary to Maintain Sobriety.

6. How Much Does Drug Rehab Cost?

how-do-I-payAddiction Rehabilitation Programs can vary greatly in Price. High-End Luxury Programs tend to charge more for extra services and special Amenities and, in some cases, higher Staff to Patient Ratios.

Inpatient Facilities tend to cost more than Outpatient Treatment Programs as they provide Patients with therapy, meals, lodging, and activities. Outpatient Treatment Programs vary in their offerings — including highly structured, intensive Outpatient Programs, weekly Group and Individual Counseling Sessions, and Support Group Meetings.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Drug Rehab:

Amenities provided – These can include many factors that Aid the Recovery Process, such as Gourmet Food, Private Rooms, Animal-Assisted Therapy, Acupuncture, Massage, and Yoga.

Length of Program – The cost associated with a treatment program is primarily determined by the Length of Stay. During your Intake Session, a counselor will discuss the amount of time recommended in Treatment for your best shot at Long-Term Recovery.

Location – Facilities in luxurious surroundings can cost more than traditional Treatment Centers. Travel to the Facility can also be factored into the cost, especially if it is far from home.

Type of Program. Inpatient Programs will often Cost More than Outpatient Programs since patients reside at the facility, which is staffed with Medical and Treatment Professionals at All Times.

If your Insurance Plan does not cover the Cost of Rehab, you can discuss other Payment Options with the Facility you Choose. The program may offer sliding scale payment options or financing plans to make the cost more manageable.

8. Should I Get Addiction Treatment Locally or Away?

travel-for-rehabMany individuals seeking help, travel to a Facility away from their home. This is beneficial in some cases because it removes the user from their home environment where they Abuse Drugs.

In such a distinctly separate location, those attending treatment are able to fully focus on their Addiction Issues, free of outside distractions or temptations from work, family, and friends.

If you choose Outpatient Treatment, you may wish to opt for a facility closer to home so you don’t have to travel far each day. If you have family obligations, a nearby program can alleviate stress as you balance home responsibilities with your Recovery Treatment.

9. Should I Choose Inpatient or Outpatient Treatment?

These Programs differ in several different ways, from cost and intensity of treatment to the overall environment and Support Structure throughout the Recovery Process.

Inpatient Addiction Rehab
Inpatient Facilities offer 24-Hour Care from Staff Personnel. Hospital based Inpatient Services have Medical Staff present at all times, while most Residential Programs will provide intermittent services from Healthcare Professionals, when needed. Both types of Inpatient Facilities require patients to live at the facility.

Inpatient Treatment is the most immersive form of Rehab, allowing patients to fully focus on their Addiction and Recovery with 24-Hour Care. Since Patients are removed from the stress of their daily lives, they are often better able to work through their Issues.

Rehab Programs can include Group Therapy, Individual Therapy, Medication-Assisted Treatment, and even Complementary Therapies such as Meditation, Animal Therapy, or Outdoor Activities.

Those with long-standing or Severe Addictions, Addictions to multiple substances, or with coexisting Medical and Mental Health Conditions often seek an Inpatient Program for Treatment. It may also be a good option for those who have made previous Rehab Efforts (either inpatient or outpatient) and have since Relapsed.

Outpatient Addiction Rehab
Outpatient Programs allow Patients to come for Treatment, Therapy, and other services and then return to their homes at the end of the Treatment Sessions. This structure lets a person continue a largely unimpeded work, school, or home life while seeking Treatment. These facilities tend to be a good fit for those with relatively Less Severe or Shorter-Term Addictions, limited time, or responsibilities at work or home that cannot be neglected.

Outpatient Programs can vary. Some involve All-Day Sessions, whereas others may only treat patients for an hour or two a day. Costs of Outpatient Care are usually lower than those of Inpatient care because there are fewer amenities and fewer staff hours involved in direct care. Because Patients can leave, patients do not have to pay for the around-the-clock Care. Many Insurance Plans may cover some or all of the cost.

can-I-get-firedWhile you may experience some Fear of Losing Your Job if you Attend Rehab, you may, in fact, be more likely to lose your job if you don’t Get Help. If you are struggling with a Substance Abuse Problem, it is possible that your boss may already suspect it. By avoiding Addiction Help, your struggle may eventually become apparent since the consequences of your Substance Abuse may cause your work performance to suffer.

Using Drugs while on the Job is Legal Grounds for Termination, but there are several Federal Laws Protecting your Right to Obtain Treatment. Under these Laws, it is Illegal to Terminate Employment as a consequence of an employee seeking treatment.

11. How Do I Get Time Off of Work to Attend Addiction Rehab?

Many Inpatient Programs require taking some time off from Work. However, there are several options that can help ease this process.

These include:

Employee Assistance Programs

An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a Voluntary Program through your Employer, which provides confidential assessments, limited counseling, and referrals to treatment at no cost to the employee.

Family and Medical Leave Act

Many Employers offer up to 12 weeks of leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act, which allows you to take unpaid time off without affecting your health insurance, in order to seek treatment for a medical condition that interferes with your ability to complete work-related tasks. Addiction falls under this category, so it could be beneficial to understand what your company offers.

Paid Time Off

Another option for taking time away from work to get help with substance abuse is to simply use accrued vacation, sick, or Personal Time to go to Rehabilitation.

Executive Rehab Centers
In the event that you have heavy work demands and need to maintain an active involvement at your place of employment, Executive Rehab Centers may facilitate maintaining a presence or ongoing involvement at work while undergoing residential treatment in a luxurious, 24-hour care setting.

Outpatient Programs
Finally, Outpatient Programs provide another Treatment possibility for anyone who is unable take time away from home or work and who may need a more affordable option than Executive Rehab. Those struggling with Severe Addiction or Relapse Problems, however, would be well served in searching for Residential Treatment Options that can offer more Intensive 24-Hour Care.

Overall, there are many different ways to get help as an employee, and seeking Treatment for Addiction will always be better for you, your job, your health, and your life in general in the long run.
