Something that makes The Source Treatment Center such a trusted name in the industry is the fact that we understand that recovery begins from the moment that you finally admit that you need help in working through your addiction. For some people, they have finally come to a place in your life where this is an easy admission to make. They are simply sick and tired of being sick and tired. However, there are many other people that have struggled for an extended period of time and, as a result, before they can begin to focus on their long term treatment they must work through a detox program first.

If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, call The Source today.  Our treatment specialists are available 24/7 to discuss your options and help you find the perfect solution (800) 204-0418.

What to Expect During Drug Detox

One of the understandable questions that we receive from clients regarding detox is what they can expect during the detox process. A leading reason why so many people are scared or worried when it comes to facing detox is because they understand that they will likely feel very sick during this stretch of time. However, it’s important to remember that it’s impossible to predict exactly how you will feel during this stretch of time. This is an extremely vulnerable time in your recovery which is why we strongly recommend that you never attempt to try to go through this process on your own. 

Your time in detox should last approximately one week. However, this timeline may need to be adjusted depending on different factors such as the severity of your addiction as well as your drug of choice. In the majority of cases, it’s likely that your withdrawal symptoms will set in in as little as a few hours from the last time that you take your drug of choice and can be potentially deadly.

What Happens After Drug Detox?

Remember, working through a drug detox program is only the first step in a recovery journey that will last you for the rest of your life. Unfortunately, many people make the mistake of believing that just because they have gone through the detox process they are completely recovered from their addiction and they don’t need to do anything further. This is a serious error and it’s one that can ultimately lead to relapse. 

After detox, you will be able to choose whether you are going to work through a partial hospitalization program or an outpatient program. If you decide to commit to an outpatient program, you will have more flexibility in your program in comparison to a partial hospitalization program. An outpatient program is a great option if you have responsibilities in your life that you simply cannot put on pause. For example, if you have a job or go to school, it’s critical that you find a treatment plan that will not put either of these responsibilities in jeopardy. From the moment that you reach out to The Source team, we will work closely with you to develop a plan that doesn’t impede on these duties. 

However, there are many times when a client reaches out to us and they are in a place in their life where they are unable to dedicate themselves to their sobriety unless they surround themselves with the right type of people in an environment that supports their efforts toward sobriety. If you feel as though you fall into this category, then we will strongly recommend that you take advantage of our partial hospitalization program which will provide you with a safe and sober environment throughout the stretch of your recovery. 

In addition to being in the right type of atmosphere, you will also have unlimited access to our staff whenever you need them. Our team will help you work through the emotions associated with the traumas in your life that may have negatively impacted your sobriety. For instance, if you experienced physical or psychological abuse at any point in your life, it’s possible that these events may have caused you trauma that led you to turn to drugs as a coping mechanism. Through taking part in different forms of therapy, our team will teach you more about healthy steps that you can take to work through how you’re feeling so that those negative emotions or memories don’t drive you to use your drug of choice.

One of the forms of therapy that you will participate in regardless of whether you work through a partial hospitalization program or an outpatient program is group therapy. Group therapy will play a key role in your long term treatment because it will help you begin to learn and share more about the impact that this life altering disease has had on your life. Through participating in group therapy, you will start to develop connections and relationships not only with our staff but also with other people that are working their way through their own recovery plan. Developing this system of support can help you to feel less alone and more empowered to continue on in your treatment. 

Another type of counseling that you will experience at rehab is individual therapy. We understand the importance of checking in work on our clients regularly to see how they are progressing through their recovery. Also, we realize that there may be certain events in their life that they simply don’t feel comfortable talking about in a group setting just yet. Individual therapy will give you personal time with one of our addiction therapists to talk about these events or emotions. Keep in mind that if you would like to make any changes to your treatment plan, we’re able to help you with this type of therapy. 

The Source Treatment Center team is available right now to help you get the process started with enrolling in either a detox program or a recovery plan. We’re happy to take the time to answer any of your questions or address your concerns so that you feel 100% comfortable with your decision to work with our staff.
