When should I seek drug and alcohol rehab in Arun?
You’ve undoubtedly heard the term There’s no time like the present.
If you have any concerns about your alcohol or drug addiction, then the chances are that those around you have noticed that you have become dependent on a certain substance.
Often, the person struggling with addiction is the last one to admit that there is a problem.
If you have noticed that you get withdrawal symptoms if you have not taken the substance for a while, if you have intense cravings for the substance, or if the substance takes up a lot of your time and money – then the chances are that you need to seek professional treatment.
The sooner an addiction is treated, the easier it is to treat.
Many people believe that they are fine as long as they haven’t hit rock bottom.
However, the key is to prevent yourself from getting to that stage. Addictions that are left untreated for long periods of time can lead to dangerous and life-threatening withdrawal symptoms when you do eventually decide to seek treatment.
So, if you are in any way concerned about your substance abuse, reach out for help today.

Inpatient and outpatient rehab – what are the differences?
Many of the same treatments are available both at an inpatient facility and as an outpatient.
The main difference is as an inpatient, you will stay at a facility for a set number of days.
This means that you won’t be leaving the facility at all for any reason during your stay.
You will have a routine that you will have to stick to including eating and sleeping at the same time every day.
As an inpatient, you will have a timetable of treatments and downtime that you will have to stick to each day. You will also have a team of medically trained professionals around you at all times in case you need them.
As an outpatient, you will visit a clinic for set appointments, but you will continue to live at home throughout your treatment.
This option is most suited to those with less severe addictions.
It also suits many people because there is no major disruption to their lives.
As an outpatient, you can still attend work or school each day and may only need time off for appointments.

What can I expect from rehab?
Your rehab treatments will be tailored to your specific needs, and so what you can expect differs from person to person.
However, the common treatments experienced in rehab are:
This is when the substance is eliminated from your body and is often the first step you will have to complete after you have entered rehab.
This stage can be frightening and dangerous as you will likely experience some unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.
There are medications that can help to ease the worst of the symptoms, however, in the case of extreme or severe addictions, you will likely need to go through this stage at an inpatient facility so that a team of experts can watch over you as you recover.
Therapy can be individual, group or family. Each type of therapy aims to help you in different ways.
For example, individual therapy can help diagnose and treat any mental health conditions, group therapy allows you to share your story with a group of your peers, and family therapy can help to rebuild broken relationships.

Is rehab safe?
Rehab is a safe and effective way to overcome an addiction, however, it is safest when it is done in an inpatient facility.
This is because a team of medical professionals can take care of you and will be there if you are suffering from any unpleasant withdrawal symptoms or need urgent medical care.
However, even as an outpatient, rehab can be very safe and effective as long as you go through the proper channels and get the correct help and medications.
