Recovery Unplugged Treatment Center Self-esteem and Drug Rehab

Self-esteem and Drug Rehab

It’s normal to feel a bit low while ‘in the rooms.’ I witnessed something that was amazing this week at Recovery Unplugged (a drug rehab in florida). Our director of client services and techs took our female clients to the nail salon getting makeovers inside and out. I noticed that it did wonders for their self-esteem. Why does this help? Because it reaffirms three notions:

I am important
I am beautiful
I deserve this
What is Self-Esteem?
Self-esteem describes how we evaluate ourselves in relation to self-worth. It describes our confidence and satisfaction with our own lives. The way people view themselves will have a serious impact in their lives. Low self-esteem can force a person to struggle to find success and happiness because they do not feel worthy. …

Rehabilitation at Home

When you suspect a loved one in your home is struggling from addiction to drugs and alcohol, many people have a natural instinct to solve it. They feel they are capable of helping that person overcome. In some cases, this may be true, but many times, it is merely a dangerous prolonging of the inevitable. It’s hard to face – especially if it is a child or sibling that you are accustomed to taking care of yourself. It is difficult to face the fact that their addiction may extend beyond your capabilities to heal them.

First of all, detox from drugs and alcohol is very dangerous at home. When the body forms an addiction to substances, it will violently react if it does not have those chemicals. Over time, your body changes the way it functions to require that substance to operate properly. This includes mental symptoms such as hallucinations, depression and violent thoughts. The physical symptoms are dangerous too and can include reactions such as seizures, vomiting or even heart attack. This is especially true if your loved one is struggling with addiction to multiple substances simultaneously, they may need medically-assisted detox to heal their body….

Recovery Unplugged Treatment Center Leaving Rehabilitation Early

Leaving Rehabilitation Early

If you have not struggled with an addiction to drugs or alcohol, it is hard to understand the rehabilitation experience. For most people, it is a grueling time that is physically, mentally and emotionally painful. Despite the rigor of rehabilitation, it is vital that those struggling with addiction undergo intensive counseling to start recovery. When a person enters the program, they typically go through an intake process that includes an in-depth assessment of their addiction, which determines how doctors will proceed with their program. They initially determine how long they think you will need to be in the program and what steps will have to be taken to get ones body and mind clean. While the required length of stay can change based on progress, sometimes, people choose to leave before they are medically advised to do so. Time and time again we see that leaving rehabilitation early only leads to more problems down the line….

August 1, 2013

Planning an Intervention

Confronting a family member or loved one about alcohol or drug addiction is hard, no matter how you approach the topic. It is important to remember that while you are approaching them in love, they still may feel attacked or be caught off guard by the situation. With that said, you must make sure the person is as comfortable as possible.There are several important factors to keep in mind if you should choose to confront someone in your life. First, when choosing the location of the meeting, it is important to find somewhere your loved one is familiar with so they do not feel like they are being ambushed. Choose a place they have been before and is associated with positive memories. Another consideration to make is who will attend the intervention. This is determined by the nature of the person you are approaching. Would they feel comfortable with a big group of family and friends? Would it be better for you to approach that person alone or with one other close friend?…

Continuing Treatment

When a person ends drug rehabilitation, the process of recovery isn’t over. The time after a person leaves a rehab facility is just as important as their time in the program. There are ways to continue healing and practice sobriety while getting back to a normal life routine. Transitional facilities are always an option for those recovering from addiction. These houses are completely drug and alcohol free and give residents structure and accountability partners to help with recovery. Typically, these places are a good place to transition back to living independently by staggering a person’s exposure to the pressures of the real world. Many use support groups or meetings to stay accountable for recovery. Typically, when a person has friends to help them stay on track mentally, they are more likely to stay on the path of sobriety….
