Drug Treatment Program East Meadow
Fear and uncertainty are oftentimes the biggest challenges to rehabilitation, which can be a long and challenging endeavor that will almost always require professional help along the way. Combining the appropriate support and professional help, you can overcome your addiction.
At Drug Treatment East Meadow we provide a wide range of addiction recovery programs for participants that come to our rehab center struggling with addiction problems. Individuals that become addicted to drugs like vicodin, percocet, lortab, heroin, meth and other substances that bring about addiction are typically at a loss of how to stop on their own. We have helped countless individuals to overcome their addiction with our comprehensive addiction recovery protocols.
The first step of our program is our detoxification process. After a person has abused an addictive drug regularly for a period of time an addiction occurs and takes over. When this happens it can be unsafe to suddenly discontinue use without professional assistance from a medically monitored detoxification process. Habit-forming substances such as alcohol, heroin, meth, demerol, vicodin and many others cause a wide variety of withdrawal effects such as agitation, anxiety, insomnia, muscle aches, vomiting, sweating, abdominal cramping, diarrhea, nausea and more.
At Drug Treatment East Meadow we offer the needed medical supervision to help out clients be as comfortable as possible through the withdrawal process. We offer 24 hour care and support throughout this critical first step in the treatment process. Our clients typically express that they feel a great sense of accomplishment when they have finished the detox process.
An essential part of beating addiction is to recognize that you have a problem. A person who refuses to accept they are addicted will not be able to move forward to solving a problem they deny they have. For many, when it comes to taking a honest look into their addiction situation, also requires the individual to try to figure out how and why they got addicted in the first place. Addiction often occurs when a person uses a substance to self-medicate in order to minimize negative feelings and emotions. If a person doesn't learn the underlying issues fueling their addiction and does not reach out for help, it will be extremely difficult for them to conquer their addiction.
Accepting that you have a problem is a very important step of recovery from drug addiction or alcoholism. However you must also have the desire to put forth the effort to change your life. Taking a look at all the reasons for making a change will help you navigate the road to rehabilitation. Many people find it helpful to make a list the reasons why they want to change. Reasons might be, for example, wanting to be a better parent, be a happier person overall, to feel more accomplished and successful, repair damaged relationships, to be healthy again, or to reverse other negative situations caused by your addiction.
Do not just concentrate and be absorbed on the circumstances and problems caused by your addiction, because focusing in on the negative aspects of the past usually makes one feel hopeless. Rather, embrace your future and the recovery process. Focus on the positive things that will surely happen when you have recovered from addiction. At Drug Rehab East Meadow we will help you to embrace your new opportunities for a happy, productive, addiction-free life. A new life accomplishing past forgotten goals and dreams in your new drug-free lifestyle. You will feel better physically, have more energy and enthusiasm, have greater success financially, have stable relationships, be more productive at work, and have time to enjoy and experience new hobbies. Setting aside time to write down these goals can keep you motivated during the rehabilitation process.
Long Term Treatment Plan
At Drug Rehabilitation Program East Meadow we know that the number one factor in determining success is whether the individual has completely overcome their addiction to drugs and alcohol. Success can only be determined by the patient's belief in their ability to stay drug free. Short term treatment protocols generally fall short of this goal.
