Drug and alcohol use disorders are devastating but they can be treated with professional detox and addiction rehab. Detox is the initial step in the process and helps you to overcome chemical dependence, while therapy that takes place in inpatient or outpatient rehab can help you to address your substance use disorder, or addiction. Good addiction treatment will be customized for you or your loved one to promote a successful recovery based on your individual history and unique needs.

Addiction therapies that may be utilized as part of rehab include:2

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
  • Motivational enhancement therapy.
  • Contingency management therapy.
  • Community reinforcement.
  • Individual and group counseling.
  • Family therapy.
  • 12-step support groups like AA and NA.
  • Dual diagnosis treatment.

One common therapy, CBT, focuses on helping you identify and change certain thought processes and behaviors that may be driving your substance abuse. CBT can also help you develop coping strategies for cravings and high-risk situations that would normally trigger substance use.3 If you lack a strong support system of friends and family, therapies like group counseling and AA support groups can be found at Trenton drug rehab centers, and these can give you the opportunity to bond with and learn from, and share with others who are also devoted to fighting and overcoming addiction.4

Prior to recovery starting, the body must be cleared of the abused substances. This is known as detoxing. Usually, alcohol and drugs will leave the abuser with unpleasant side effects or withdrawal symptoms once the body has become accustomed to getting the drug. Medicine-assisted detox can minimize the symptoms for anyone seeking to start anew.
