Fear and uncertainty are oftentimes the greatest barriers to addiction recovery, which is usually a long and challenging endeavor that will more than likely require professional help along the way. Combining the appropriate support and guidance, you can overcome your addiction.
At Drug Treatment Facility Atlantic City we provide a full spectrum of substance abuse treatment services to participants that arrive at our facility struggling with addiction. Individuals that become addicted to drugs like percocet, vicodin, lortab, heroin, cocaine, meth and other substances that cause addiction usually don't know how to recover on their own. We have helped countless individuals to beat their addiction with our comprehensive rehabilitation protocols.
The first step of our program is our detoxification program. After an individual has abused an addictive drug over an extended period of time an addiction develops for the drug. When dependence or addiction has developed it can be not medically safe to abruptly stop using the drug without professional assistance from a medical detoxification procedure. Habit-forming drugs such as alcohol, cocaine, heroin, meth, crack, demerol, vicodin and many others cause a wide variety of withdrawal effects such as anxiety, agitation, muscle aches, insomnia, vomiting, sweating, abdominal cramping, diarrhea, nausea, lethargy and other symptoms.
At Drug Rehab Program Atlantic City we offer the often necessary medical supervision to make our clients as safe and comfortable as possible through the detox process. We offer 24 hour care throughout this very important first phase in the treatment process. Our clients often say that they feel a renewed sense of hope after they have completed our detox program.
An essential aspect of overcoming addiction is to realize that you have a problem. A person who refuses to accept they are addicted cannot move forward to solving a problem they deny they have. For many, when it comes down to taking a honest look into their addiction problem, also requires the individual to look at why and how it developed in the first place. Addiction typically happens when a person starts taking the drug or alcohol to self-medicate in order to handle negative thoughts, feelings, and emotions. If a person doesn't learn the root issues connected to their addiction and does not reach out for help, it will be extremely difficult for them to overcome their addiction.
Acknowledging that you have a problem is a very important part of recovery from drug addiction or alcoholism. In addition you also need to have the desire to put forth the effort to change it. Taking a look at all the reasons for making a change will help you navigate the road to recovery. Many say it helps to write down why they want to put an end to their addiction. Reasons could be, for example, wanting to be a better parent, experience more joy in life, to feel more accomplished and successful, repair relationships with family and friends, to be healthy again, or to reverse other negative situations caused by your addiction.
Do not only focus on the problems caused by your substance abuse, as focusing in on the negative aspects of the past can make you feel depressed and hopeless. Instead, embrace your new addiction-free life and recovery. Think about the positive things that are sure to happen when you have recovered from addiction. At Drug Rehabilitation Program Atlantic City we will guide you to embrace your prospects for a new, brighter future. A new life accomplishing long lost goals and dreams in your new drug-free lifestyle. You will feel better physically, have more energy, be more secure financially, have lasting relationships, be more productive at work, and have time to enjoy and explore new hobbies. Taking the time to list out these goals can keep you motivated throughout the recovery process.
