Once you realize you have a problem with drugs or alcohol, the next step is usually doing something about said problem. When you are looking for help, Columbus rehab and drug treatment might be exactly what you need.
Rehab and Drug Treatment: Detoxification
If you choose to go to Banyan Treatment Center, the first course of action is to go through the detoxification process. Detoxification, otherwise known as detox, is when you have symptoms of withdrawal due to excessive use of drugs or alcohol. Feeling withdrawals can be a very uncomfortable process and it can also be dangerous. To ensure you are safe it is a good idea to go through detox.
In detox, there are medically trained individuals who observe and look after you 24/7. You are given medication and slowly weaned off of it until your withdrawals are gone or very minimal. It is impossible to avoid withdrawals all together, but if you want to make them more bearable our brand new Banyan Detox Facility is an excellent option prior to entering Banyan Treatment Center.
Rehab and Drug Treatment: Treatment and Therapy
After you’ve physically detoxed, the next step is the treatment and therapy part of recovering from drugs and alcohol. At Banyan Treatment Center they will assess you and create a treatment plan and course of action to help you in sobriety. You will be assigned a therapist that best fits your needs and start going to one on one therapy sessions and group sessions with other clients. There is either an inpatient program or outpatient program and both can be very beneficial in helping you on your journey in recovery.
Rehab and Drug Treatment: Long-term Sobriety
Banyan has the right idea when it comes to taking clients to meetings and introducing them to anonymous fellowships and the recovery community. In order to achieve long-term sobriety, you need to develop a sober support group, go to meetings, get a sponsor and work the steps. Usually in early sobriety you will live in a halfway or sober living and house and meet a lot of other sober people. A halfway house holds you accountable and gives you drug tests, makes sure you get a job, pay rent, go to meetings, have a sponsor and are doing the right thing.
Rehab and Drug Treatment: Meetings
Going to meetings and working the 12 steps is what recovery is all about. At Banyan Treatment Center they know that and want to make sure that they impress that upon all of their clients. I know that for me personally, if I didn’t go to meetings, work the steps, have a sponsor and now sponsor other women – I wouldn’t be sober today. Having sober supports is what has carried me through when I couldn’t carry myself in the program. I consider it to be an absolute necessity to have friends you can count on in recovery. Choosing Banyan Treatment Center can be a life-changing experience and help you start your recovery journey!
