What is drug rehab treatment? Is it a place? Is it a pill? Is it a therapy? Is it a religion?
Mention the word “drug rehab” in relation to substance abuse and many people think of long-term residential drug treatment centers or drug detox. In fact, rehab treatment includes both of these options–and a variety of others.
Drug rehab treatment, or drug treatment, addresses the individual’s physical, psychological, emotional, and social conditions. Sustained reduction in drug use and sustained increases in personal health and social function are the primary goals.
A variety of scientifically based approaches to drug rehab treatment exists. Drug treatment can include behavioral therapy (such as counseling, cognitive therapy, or psychotherapy), medications, or a combination of these. Behavioral therapies offer people strategies for coping with their drug cravings, teach them ways to avoid drugs and prevent relapse, and help them deal with relapse if it occurs. When a person’s drug-related behavior places him or her at higher risk for AIDS or other infectious diseases, behavioral therapies can help to reduce the risk of disease transmission. Case management and referral to other medical, psychological, and social services are crucial components of treatment for many patients.
Drug Rehab treatment can occur in a variety of settings, in many different forms, and for different lengths of time. Because drug addiction is typically a chronic disorder characterized by occasional relapses, a short-term, one-time treatment often is not sufficient. For many, treatment is a long-term process that involves multiple interventions and attempts at abstinence.
If you or someone you care for is dependent on drugs and needs rehab treatment, it is important to know that no single treatment approach is appropriate for all individuals. For people exhibiting signs of dependence or addiction, a screening will probably lead to a referral for more intense attention.

Many factors are considered in developing a drug detox protocol that suits the participant’s needs, factors that include: the level of drug use, age, gender, family history, tolerance, etc.
