What are the big pitfalls families fall into when choosing a drug or alcohol rehab program? If you sent someone to a ‘good’ private drug or alcohol detox and rehab program and they came home with a prescription, counseling appointment that they never attended, and relapsed within 30 days of leaving the center …you found a lemon center.Coastline Behavioral Health
What happened? You paid your money, used up your insurance company’s rider for addiction, and got more lies. Makes you want to get mad, but getting even isn’t your goal. You simply want your loved one back. Why didn’t things work out? Is it you, is it them? Nope, it may be neither. A large part of the drug treatment industry is growing in quicksand.
The 5 Biggest Lies Perpetrated By The Drug Rehab Industry
Addiction is a re-occurring disease that the addict has no control over
Addiction is a medical/counseling problem that more drugs and lots of counseling appointments one day will fix, maybe
Addict is not responsible for their actions
Drugs are necessary to manage addiction
Addicts are self medicating, but taking the wrong drugs – our drugs are better
Most of you want your loved ones back. You want your son, daughter, husband or wife etc. back with you in the way you remember them best: Fun, happy loving and caring. Addicts don’t want to be addicts. They factually feel totally trapped and hopeless to end addiction.
Rehabilitation means bringing the wonderful person back who you lost to drug or alcohol addiction. This is the true goal of rehab. If they didn’t get that, they haven’t been rehabilitated. Maybe you sent your loved one to a rehab that didn’t have the same goal as you.
Drug and alcohol rehab centers and programs have goals. Rightly, addiction treatment has the goal of rehabilitating the person and ending addiction. Sounds good, right?
PAY ATTENTION: This is NOT the goal of many drug and alcohol abuse programs.
Sometimes the 30 day rehab program objectives are ‘understood’ to mean to better control addiction through managing symptoms through medications and counseling. When does the addiction end? Usually never – based on a 78% to 92% failure rate.
So what happened? Clearly, managing symptoms with medications and counseling or endless meetings are NOT the same as rehabilitated, right?
Get these questions answered fully before you move forward. Avoid the lemons!
How To End Addiction By Choosing The Right Rehab Program
Does the center publish their success rate, what is it?
How do they define success? This is a more important question than you may think. It also reveals their philosophy. Does the center offer / insist upon an after care program that involves ongoing counseling or meetings? If ‘Yes’ is the answer: Why – didn’t they rehabilitate your loved one on their program? What are they charging you or your insurance company for, baby sitting? If you read the above questions and think that your loved one still needs ongoing counseling, you’ve been dining on lemons. addiction shouldn’t be treated with medications as it isn’t a disease. Addiction is a social problem caused by abusing drugs or alcohol.
