    Drug addiction can affect anyone and is common in Arizona. People suffering from mental illness or bad home environments can look towards drugs of any kind as an escape-- a way to lessen pain and, depending on the drug used, literally escape reality. It can start out with cigarettes, then to marijuana which the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) considers the “gateway drug” to more dangerous connotations. Drugs that are severely addictive and have major withdrawal symptoms can be dangerous when a user decides to quit on their own. Some of these drugs include heroin, cocaine, or alcohol. When someone decides that they need help, or when loved ones such as family members or friends, have determined that their addiction causes more harm than good, an inpatient drug rehab center is a step in the right direction. Rehabilitation facilities house patients and give them the proper care and education to lead them towards recovery. There are many benefits for not only a drug user but also the people that surround him or her. Health Benefits for the Patient and Family While staying at a drug rehab institution, a patient will receive different types of care at the hand of nurses and psychological professionals. Drug abuse is not only a physical illness but a mental one too. Being in care at a rehabilitation institution helps the patient through the withdrawal symptoms with medical professionals through a process known as “detoxification” which is much healthier for the body, rather than he or she going through it alone. Outside of physical benefits, there are also psychological benefits. As per-mentioned, drug addiction just as much a body illness as it is a mental one. Inpatients are supported by psychiatrists and therapists to help find the route of the issue-- why did this person turn to drugs in the first place? How can that be helped? Is there an underlying mental illness that went undiagnosed? What are the next steps that this person may not know how to take on their own and need a guiding hand? With the care and loving support is given by nurses and the community of other inpatients, people who receive care here can find a home as they grow as a person. It is a new environment, possibly out of a toxic one which leads to abuse as suggested by the AddictionCenter. On the opposite hand, inpatient rehab is also beneficial to the family and friends of the person in question. Knowing that someone important to them is getting the help that they need, can relieve a lot of stress off of a family. It’s an easy, calm state of mind for everyone involved. What Comes Next After the patient successfully becomes able to function without the need for illicit drugs, their journey at the rehab facility does not stop there. They have access to a groundbreaking network of people who want to help continue their sobriety with education and resources to do so. They do not need to fight this battle alone.

    Making the decision to enter rehab is an admirable choice and the first step towards recovery and sobriety. While the decision may have been difficult, know that you are doing the right thing, and don’t feel ashamed of your situation. There’s nothing to be ashamed of when it comes to seeking help, and you’re doing yourself, your loved ones, and your health a huge favor. But choosing a rehab center can be difficult, as there are many factors to consider. If you’re searching for the best drug rehab in Scottsdale, here are some of the things you’ll need to think about. Inpatient or Outpatient? Make a decision based on your need about how intense your treatment needs to be and whether or not you’d like short or longer-term rehab. If you’re unable to take time off from work and have a stable home life, then outpatient treatment is your best choice. Inpatient treatment is an ideal option if you are able to take time off, don’t live in an environment that is conducive to avoiding drugs and alcohol, or don’t have a strong support system. Both inpatient and outpatient treatments will include detox and therapy. Credentials Make sure you are choosing a facility that has the proper certifications and credentials. Look for The Joint Commission approval when it comes to any facility you’re considering, and check out the credentials of the physicians and therapists who work at the facility. Therapy Options Many addicts suffer from a dual diagnosis, which is a mental illness that coincides with substance abuse. Choose a treatment center that also provides mental health care from certified psychiatrists and therapists. In addition to mental health, you might also want to choose a facility that offers a variety of different program and therapy options, like group therapy, exercise, or art therapy. Location Sometimes, going the distance can do you a lot of good, in more ways than one. If you’re going for inpatient treatment, choosing a rehab center that is far from home can help you focus more on recovery. It’ll be easier for you to lose yourself in the surroundings and stop worrying about life outside. But remind yourself you’re not running away from your problems-- you’re taking a step back to clear your head. Cost Many treatment centers take insurance. Get all of the necessary information about costs, copays, and if the rehab center offers payment plans or financial assistance. Aftercare Once you’re done with the program, recovery doesn’t stop there-- in fact, you might not ever be truly “done” as staying sober is a lifelong battle. But after you’ve completed a course of intense treatment, it’s essential to continue to check in. A rehab center that offers aftercare services is imperative and can provide you with the ongoing support you need. Support can be in the form of continuing therapy, group therapy, or other activities. Remind yourself again that there is no shame in seeking help. In fact, you are taking a courageous step. With determination and the help of a rehab center, you can achieve a sober future.
