What is “Rehab”?
Rehab, which is also called rehabilitation, is generally defined as a form of treatment that is used as a way for individuals with substance abuse problems to overcome their addictions. It encompasses a wide array of different addictions and can also refer to the treatment of emotional and/or physical problems.
The rehab process is determined by the type of addiction that an individual has as well as its level of severity. Individuals who feel that they may be in need of rehab will first go through a screening and assessment process in which different techniques will be used to identify whether someone is in need of rehab.
Following the screening and assessment process, a process for treatment is determined according to the unique needs of the individual. Some individuals, especially those who are addicted to certain substances, are required to first go through a detox process. Overall, it is important that the entire treatment process is customized and personalized, as this significantly raises the likelihood of long-term success and recovery from the addiction.
While some rehab facilities specialize in a specific type of rehab, facilities like Newport One Health can treat a wide range of different addictions and/or problems. The process for recovering from most addictions is very similar, although, and as has been mentioned, the exact methods are personalized to maximize the chance of long-term success and recovery.
How Do I Know Whether I Need Rehab or Treatment?
While it may seem obvious to many whether rehab or treatment are necessary, it can be difficult to tell whether treatment is required in other instances. In addition, many individuals who are living with an addiction are unaware that their addiction is an issue. So, a screening and assessment process needs to be completed to determine the next step.
During the screening and assessment process, counselors utilize different strategies and techniques to determine whether an individual actually does have a problem. The screening process is a fairly simple one that involves little more than an identification of a problem. It generally comes down to a simple yes or no whether someone has an addiction or problem.
The assessment period, however, is more intensive and requires that the individual go through several tests to determine the next plan of action in their recovery from addiction. During this process, counselors will determine whether a detox period is necessary while also identifying the best plan of action for rehab.
At the end of the day, the only way to know whether you need rehab or treatment is by going through the screening and assessment process that a rehab facility offers. From there, trained professionals and counselors will be able to give you a better understanding of whether you are a fit for rehab.
If you would like to find out whether you are a fit, contacting Newport One Health is a great place to start. From there, our staff can walk you through the process and ensure that your needs are met.
What is Detox?
Detox is a process is which an individual attempt to clear harmful substances and/or toxins from the body. While everyday people for health purposes often do a detox, it is also one of the most common methods for helping addicts rehab from their addiction.
The detox process is performed with the goal of flushing all unwanted toxins from the body, which is imperative for an addict short and long term health. It is a necessary physical step to prepare an addict for the psychological part of the required treatment.
One of the unfortunate aspects of detox is that it can be a rather difficult, and often even painful, process. This is especially true for long time addicts who are therefore, likely to experience symptoms of withdrawal during the process.
For this reason, it is highly recommended that anyone participating in a detox does so with the guidance of a licensed professional. Doing so on your own can lead to severe consequences, which can sometimes even lead to death.
In addition, it is important to detox under the supervision of a medical professional because of their knowledge of what the necessary treatment will be. Not all addictions require the same detox process, with some requiring different types of medication to enhance the opportunity for success.
If you would like to find out whether detox is the right step, you can do so by contacting the support team at Newport One Health.
What is Inpatient Treatment?
Inpatient treatment is a form of rehab in which an individual stay remains at a rehab facility for an extended time and is cared for by that facilities staff on a 24/7 basis. This is one of the more popular forms of addiction treatment as it has been proven to be the most effective option for most individuals facing an addiction.
The major advantage of inpatient treatment is obviously the fact that the patient is cared for and monitored around the clock. This can then ensure that the treatment process is followed thoroughly and enabled the facility to eliminate temptations and triggers from the outside world.
Before an individual is assigned to an inpatient treatment facility, they must first participate in an extensive screening and assessment process. Through this process, therapists, psychologists, and counselors can work together to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets the unique needs of the individual.
The treatment plan that is developed by the team of specialists is generally designed to work with the interests, personality, and specific addiction that the individual is facing. Rehab facilities like NewportOne Health emphasize the necessity of personalized inpatient treatment, as this can significantly raise the likelihood of long-term success and sobriety.
If you would like to find out whether inpatient treatment is the best option for you, you can do so by contacting Newport One Health. From there, specialists will be able to evaluate your unique situation and determine what type of treatment is necessary.
How Do I Know Whether I Need an Outpatient or Inpatient Rehab Program?
One of the biggest questions that many individuals facing addiction asks is whether they should be participating in an inpatient or outpatient rehab program. Because of the uniqueness of each individual’s situation, it is very difficult for anyone but a licensed medical staff to determine which option is best.
Generally speaking, most medical staff will, if possible, make an attempt at helping an individual overcome their addiction through outpatient treatment. Unfortunately; however, there are many situations where being in an outpatient program proves to be too challenging because of the existing temptations. It can also prove to be a dangerous option if your addiction is severe.
In scenarios where an addiction is severe, detox is often required. With detox, it is highly recommended that the individual complete this process under the supervision of licensed practitioners. Attempting to complete the detox process on your own can lead to significant problems and can sometimes even be deadly.
At the end of the day, the only way to know whether inpatient or outpatient treatment is right for you is to participate in a screening and assessment process performed by a team of trained professionals. From there, psychologists, counselors, and therapists can work together to determine the best plan of action for your unique situation.
You can find out more about which option best fits your needs by getting in contact with the staff at Newport One Health. We will be able to set you up with an evaluation that can then give you an answer about whether inpatient or outpatient treatment is best for you.
What is the Success Rate? How Do I Know Whether I’ll Be Cured?
The success rate of a rehab facility is almost impossible to determine. The main reason for this is caused by recovery from an addiction is a lifelong process. Many people go through the detox and rehab processes and experience decades of sobriety. Sometimes, those same people then end up reaching a point of depression and fall back on their old, dangerous habits.
There is absolutely no rehab facility in the world that can guarantee a 100% success rate. The job of the rehab facility is to set up individuals facing addiction with an opportunity to experience long term recovery and sobriety. While this is always the goal, it is not always possible and is heavily affected by a variety of different factors.
At NewportOne Health, we tend to judge our success rate on alumni who are currently still having success through recovery and would therefore recommend our facility to others with similar problems. We always work to maintain contact with our alumni to ensure they remain on the right path and to continue to serve as people they can trust.
While it is unfortunate, it is simply impossible for anyone to know with 100% certainty if they will be cured from their addiction. The recovery process, as has been mentioned, is something that lasts for the remainder of an addict’s life and requires attention for long-term success to occur.
If you would like to hear more detailed information about the success of our alumni, feel free to get in contact with our staff at Newport One Health. We are available at 855-422-5826.
