Fear and uncertainty are oftentimes the biggest obstacles to recovery, which typically is a long and difficult endeavor that will more than likely require supervised professional assistance. Combining the proper support and professional help, you can overcome your addiction.
At Drug Rehabilitation Center Aiken we have a wide range of substance abuse treatment programs to participants that arrive at our facility struggling with addiction. Clients that get addicted to substances like vicodin, percocet, lortab, heroin, meth and other substances that bring about addiction usually don't know how to stop by themselves without help. We have helped countless struggling addicts to overcome their addiction by means of our comprehensive addiction recovery protocols.
The first step of our program is our detox regimen. After an individual has taken an addictive substance regularly for a period of time a physical dependence occurs and takes over. Once this happens it may be unsafe to abruptly quit without professional assistance from a medical detox process. Habit-forming drugs such as alcohol, heroin, meth, crack, demerol, fentanyl and many others produce a wide variety of withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, agitation, muscle aches, insomnia, vomiting, sweating, abdominal cramping, diarrhea, nausea, lethargy and other symptoms.
At Drug Treatment Center Aiken we provide the needed medical services and support to help out clients be as comfortable as possible in the detoxification period. We provide 24 hour services and supervision during this crucial first phase in the rehabilitation process. Program participants typically express that they feel a renewed sense of hope when they have completed our detoxification phase of the program.
An essential aspect of overcoming addiction is to realize that you have a problem. An individual who is in denial about their addiction will not be able to move forward to solving a problem they deny they have. For many people, when it comes down to taking a honest look into their addiction situation, along with that requires also to try to figure out why and how they got addicted in the first place. Addiction often happens when a person uses a substance to relieve physical and/or emotional pain in order to handle negative thoughts, feelings, and emotions. If an individual doesn't recognize the underlying issues fueling their addiction and does not accept help, it will be extremely difficult for them to fully recover from their addiction.
Accepting that you have a problem is an extremely critical part in dealing with drug addiction or alcoholism. However you also need to have the desire to do what is needed to change it. Taking a look at all the reasons for making a change will help you navigate the road to rehabilitation. Many find it helpful to make a list the reasons why they want to change. Reasons might include wanting to be a better mother/father, be a happier person overall, to feel more accomplished and successful, repair damaged relationships, to be healthy again, or to simply repair the damage that addiction causes.
Do not only concentrate and be absorbed on the circumstances and problems as a result of your addiction, as focusing in on the negative consequences of the past can make you feel hopeless. Rather, embrace your new addiction-free life and the recovery process. Focus on the great things that are sure to materialize when you have recovered from addiction. At Drug Rehab Aiken we will help you to embrace your prospects for a new, brighter future. A new life fulfilling long lost goals and dreams in your new drug-free lifestyle. You will feel better physically, have more energy and enthusiasm, be more secure financially, have lasting relationships, be more productive at work, and have time to enjoy and experience new hobbies and recreation. Taking the time to list out these goals can keep you excited and motivated throughout the rehabilitation process.
Long Term Rehabilitation Plan
At Drug Rehab Center Aiken we believe that the number one factor in determining success is whether the client has completely overcome their addiction. Success can only be determined by the patient's confidence in their ability to remain drug free. Short term treatment protocols generally fall short of this goal.

We will help you to fix the damages that you have created in your life so that you are not filled with disappointment.

The only person who can change you is you. At Drug Treatment Aiken it helps to be immersed in a strong support network to ensure your success.
