The first step to acknowledge that you have an addiction issue and decide to attend a rehabilitation program can be a daunting one. Many addicts worry about how the rehabilitation process will affect their lives. Like anything in life, the unknown can be scary. Thankfully, there are answers to all the questions you may have about the rehab process. The more information you can obtain about what to expect throughout the entire process -- from how long to stay in treatment to how to pay for the rehabilitation center -- the better you will feel about your new journey into recovery.

Here are some frequently asked questions:


If you cannot manage or control your life because of an addiction or compulsive behavior, you need rehab or treatment. Problem behaviors persist even when addicts are aware of the negative effects of their addiction on their jobs, relationships and health. When a person starts to show signs of addiction, it is best to contact a professional counselor, psychologist, psychiatrist or addiction specialist who can better assess the situation.
Detox, or detoxification, is the clearing of toxins or harmful substances from the body. A detox may be done by taking supplements or drinking liquids that are made specifically for detoxification, fasting and eating prescribed foods. This flushing of toxins is vital for an individual's health and stability. While detox may be uncomfortable and difficult, there are ways to lessen the physical pain. Detox can be dangerous if not managed by a qualified medical practitioner. Detox addresses the physical issues that come with addiction. Once a patient undergoes detox from alcohol or drugs, they are then ready to begin the psychological journey to recovery.
Different addictions call for different treatments. In order to find out what is best for you, discuss your situation with a qualified healthcare professional, such as a therapist, addictions counselor, psychiatrist or doctor. Ask for a referral to a reliable treatment facility.
To ensure that treatment is successful, most rehab facilities don't allow patients to leave unless accompanied by staff. In most cases, facilities are unlocked, however locked facilities do exist for patients who need to be secured (those who try to escape, become hostile, threaten the safety of staff or other patients, etc.).
When you undergo rehab, it's important to stay for the duration of the treatment. Detox may be included if you are addicted to substances or if you display compulsive behaviors. A typical rehab program lasts anywhere from 28 to 45 days, depending on the patient's progress.
Inpatient treatment provides care 24 hours a day. Sometimes, it is better to be taken out of your home environment in order to focus on recovery. After an extensive evaluation, a group of therapists, counselors and psychologists come up with a unique, personalized treatment plan. The treatment plan is based on the patient's diagnoses, interests and personality, and usually consists of group meetings and 12-step programs along with specific therapies such as Expressive Arts or Equine Therapy.
If you aren’t showing any progress in an outpatient program, or if it becomes unsafe to be in outpatient, you should be admitted to an inpatient facility. If your addiction or issue is more severe, or if you need to undergo detox, it is recommended that you be admitted in an inpatient program.
Family involvement is crucial for the recovery process. Most treatment facilities have a set period of time for the family to come visit and take part in workshops or lectures. Many times, addiction stems from issues within the family, so it’s essential to understand family dynamics and provide a space for the family to communicate and heal. Not only does this heal the patient, but it brings freedom and peace for the rest of the family.
