Addiction treatment – otherwise known as drug rehab – is a necessary component of recovery from substance use disorder. After a certain point, a person who is physically or psychologically dependent on a substance loses control over the amount that they ingest.
An individual may find it impossible to live life without their substance of choice after addiction has set in: they see no way out of the hole they have fallen into, as the only normal life seems to be the one lived for substances.
Admitting that there is a problem – and that the only real solution is abstinence – is the first step towards recovery from substance use disorder. People will often commit tragic and completely uncharacteristic actions to fuel their addiction, despite the fact that they know it is wrong.
This disorder affects the lives of everyone around them; however, a person afflicted with substance use disorder will often find it difficult – or impossible – to stop ingesting drugs on his/her own accord, regardless of the negative consequences.
Our drug rehab in North Carolina disrupts the addictive process by removing an individual from the danger, chaos, and comfort of their substance use disorder.
This is why drug rehab is so vital for the recovery process. Eliminating the destructive behaviors and thought patterns that led a person to use drugs in the first place is just one piece of the puzzle. There needs to be a program set in place that addresses the psychological, spiritual, and behavioral issues that cause addiction.
The Blanchard Institute‘s Charlotte treatment facility and Lake Norman treatment facility provide a safe atmosphere for monumental change and growth by delving into deeply-rooted issues such as trauma, anxiety, and depression that may have led a person to use drugs in the first place. The substances were the old solution. The Blanchard Institute helps our clients find new ones.
