Our Addiction Treatment Programs in Paducah, KY
Addiction is a disease that impacts people of all ages, races, and backgrounds. It does not discriminate based on employment, sexual orientation, housing, or personal beliefs. The 40 million Americans who meet the criteria for substance use disorder are proof of that. Today, more and more people are experimenting with addictive substances, and many of them end up developing a substance use disorder as a result. While this is certainly not one’s intention during experimentation, it is a harsh reality that some have to live with as a result.
What to Expect at Our Rehab
In order for an individual who is addicted to drugs and/or alcohol to truly overcome his or her addiction, it is imperative that he or she obtains treatment for the entire problem, not just one aspect of it. Going through addiction can negatively impact one’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing in ways that can continue to cause destruction if not properly cared for.
For most, treatment begins with a period of detox. Depending on how much an individual has been using and for how long, the period of detox can last for a few days to a couple of weeks. At this time, a professional treatment center can provide individuals with medical and psychiatric care so that their period of withdrawal is not as painful as it would be if done independently. Through this care, individuals can receive appropriate medications and psychiatric care designed to help them continue to push through detox so that he or she can participate in the many other aspects of treatment.
A treatment center can offer countless different kinds of therapies capable of restoring one’s overall wellbeing. A comprehensive approach to addiction treatment is to include a number of different therapeutic modalities into one’s care, such as individual, group, and family therapy, along with other more specific therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), experiential therapy, and holistic therapy. Through these therapies, individuals can benefit significantly, as they will work to address the underlying causes of their substance use disorders and start to appropriately handle the many issues that might have been ignoring during their active addiction.
When the time comes to leave treatment, an individual will have a strong aftercare plan that has been developed between him or her and members of the staff. This aftercare plan will serve as a road map on how to proceed in recovery without the guidance of professionals and the safety of a secluded environment. Continuing to utilize one’s aftercare plan can help him or her maintain long-term recovery.
If you are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, do not let one more day go by without reaching out for help. You deserve to live a life free of active addiction and filled with happiness and positive wellbeing.
