People who undergo drug rehabilitation face a series of challenges they must overcome for successful recovery. The first is withdrawal symptoms, the side effects of quitting your chosen drug. These symptoms vary depending on the substance you use and how severe your addiction is, but may include:
Medications can help reduce the severity of these withdrawal symptoms. Therapy is also vital in helping you work through the process and cope with issues like cravings that often derail drug recovery.
Some common challenges people in drug rehab face include the following:
Substance misuse can be an expensive habit, often leaving you in debt you struggle to manage. These financial difficulties put you under stress at a time when coping with recovery takes all your energy.
Substance misuse can affect your close relationships, leading to marital and partnership breakdown.
In addition to losing partners, you might find you lose friends as well, leaving you lonely and isolated at a time when you need support.
Many people with addiction disorders also suffer from mental health problems like post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and anxiety.
Relapse — where you start using drugs or alcohol again — is one of the key challenges of drug recovery. All the above rehab challenges can contribute to losing the battle to stay sober.
Therapy is vital to overcoming an addiction to drugs or alcohol effectively. Techniques the team of mental health professionals at One Alkaline Life, LLC use to help you with your rehab challenges include:
CBT helps immensely with coping skills and allows you to think more clearly. Your therapist uses CBT to analyze your thoughts and swap flawed ones for insightful ones.
This form of person-centered therapy relies on your determination to change.
Discussing your recovery challenges with others facing similar struggles offers vital mutual support.
