There are actually thousands of rehabilitation programs to choose from, but the most difficult part is finding something that works. Additional factors may include time, cost and location, and we try and focus on what type of rehabilitation or treatment method is used. Finding out what will work best is a first step that is very important.
Let's look at the definition of rehabilitation. To rehabilitate someone is to restore them to their former capacity, meaning to repair their bodies and minds to the way they were before they ever started using drugs and alcohol. This is very different from what most treatment centers have become, which is little more than a dry-out period with group counseling and medications that cover up the symptoms instead of solving the problem completely.
Below you will find some more information on different types of treatment methods and rehabilitation programs, and be sure to contact us for more details on specific facilities that are successful.
More and more people today are searching for alternative solutions to the traditional 12-step recovery program. The reason for this is because people are realizing that addiction is not an incurable disease and that prescription drugs should have no part in the recovery process for the majority of people.
Instead addicts and families alike are looking for longer-term more holistic-based treatments that focus on solving the problem of addiction forever. These drug rehabilitation methods do not use replacement drugs and actually focus on rebuilding individuals physically, mentally and spiritually so that they are more aware of their environment and responsible for their actions.
The most successful example of such a program uses something called a biophysical drug rehab process. This treatment also uses nutritional supplemts and a body cleansing procedure to eliminate physical cravings.

The best way to end an addiction to drugs is to seek help from a program that doesn't try and put people on more drugs via prescription. Long-term inpatient drug rehabilitation programs that don't give more drugs to addicts may be a bit more difficult in the first few weeks, but are much more successful over time for permanent sobriety. Much of our research over the years has discovered that the relapse rate is much higher for people that are put on medications, even though they help with symptoms early on, such as depression, anxiety or sleeplessness.
Today there is way too much emphasis placed on the brain instead of focusing on the individual and his or her ability to perceive and solve problems given the correct information. While the brain and its chemical balance can be one indicator of symptoms that need to be resolved, brain scan research has never been to conclusively prove anything other than reaction. There aren't brain scans of people before and after they became addicted, so all they're comparing is one person's brain with someone elses, etc. It's speculation instead of proof.
The ultimate goal of any rehabilitation program should be for addicts to become sober for life. Anything less is only temporary treatment. While most treatment centers have very low success rates (below 20%) and therefore will never publish them, there are programs out there that do routine graduate follow-up and monitoring indicating their level of success. Some programs may even guarantee success within certain guidelines.
