Very few things are as detrimental to progress in an individual’s life as addiction.

Affording these individuals, in various stages of dependency and substance use, while on the downward spiral of their lives, the opportunity to hit the reset button, and to get help to put their lives in order, and to find a way back to normalcy in their lives, profession, family and society.
A detox process that promotes a safe and effective detoxification from all substances—alcohol, narcotics, methamphetamines, cocaine etc., that were abused by the individual is the hallmark of a competent addiction program. Depending on the substance that was used, the duration of drug abuse, and how much of the substance has affected the individual’s body and mind, the detoxification process ranges anywhere from three to fourteen days.

The detox process might be difficult, painful, and sometimes even excruciating because of withdrawal symptoms, if undertaken without competent supervision. Medical management of the process makes it safe and easy.
A treatment program, no matter how highly rated, is likely to be ineffective without appropriate professionals implementing it. In the case of rehab centers, the facility and the effectiveness of its addiction treatment programs are dependent on a qualified team of physicians, counselors, psychiatrists and pain management specialists who implement individualized treatment programs based on a combination of specialized medication, psychiatric services, and rehabilitation activities to ensure that patients receive a holistic form of treatment that can acclimatize them to regain health and rejoin society as soon as possible.
There are varying forms of substance abuse among individuals with various levels of intensity and dependency. A fixed treatment plan is not going to be able to help all of them.

Counseling is an essential aspect of the overall treatment process. There are various forms of treatments that focus on different aspects of recovery and therapy. Essentially, there are two types of counseling: 1) individual counseling and therapy and 2) family and group counseling.
Individual therapy involves one-on-one sessions with your therapist or health professional. These sessions function as a form of counseling where you concentrate on yourself, your addiction, the effect it has had in your life—both professional and personal—your psyche—in terms of your interactions with people both in your personal and professional life—and its effect on the lives of your family and loved ones. Your therapist also helps identify your Addiction triggers, the knowledge of which is critical for the future, after the treatment is completed. A combination of behavioral therapy and, at times, medical supplementation are standard techniques involved in these sessions.
