Rehab Programs

Traditionally, a rehab program or treatment center would help treat people through two specific routes.

The first would be a medical detox if needed, followed by a fairly intensive therapeutic process based around the first five steps of the twelve step program of Alcoholics Anonymous.

This would mainly be done in a mix of group discussion, group therapy and personal one to one therapy, with some life skills work done as well, under the supervision of qualified clinical staff.

This has evolved into an environment where rehabs can offer a bewildering display of what they refer to as rehab programs.A selection of these programs is listed below !

This can be extremely confusing to people researching a rehab, both in terms of what the program is, and how effective it is.

Part of the way through this is to have a general undertsnading of how rehabs work, visit the website of any rehab that interests you and see what programs they offer by way of treatment.These programs are sometimes referred to as therapeutic modalities.

If it is not clear what a particular program means, ring or email them and ask them. Also ask them whether the program is evidenced based, in terms of its effectiveness. This really means, is it based on current or ongoing clinical research.

Bear in mind also that the rehab industry is highly competitive and very lucrative, and some rehabs will offer exotic sounding therapies in order to attract business, ie you!

Whilst these therapies might be fun, it is often questionable how effective they are in helping deal with alcoholism and drug addiction.
