The cases of drug abuse in India have increased exponentially with the latest figures crossing the 1 billion mark. According to recent surveys, this upward trend is only reaching out for higher peaks with the coronavirus pandemic being a very efficient catalyst.
The first and probably the most crucial step towards a healthier and substance-free life is accepting one’s struggle with addiction. The immediate step following this is to reach out to professionals who can help you in a controlled environment using systematic scientific techniques.
Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Program by Safe House Wellness Retreat
Every drug user does not grow in the same mould. The different personality traits, coping mechanisms, past experiences, and thought processes make each individual and their interaction with substance unique. Consequently, before developing a specialized treatment plan, the first task of a rehabilitation centre is to understand the suffering of each incoming patient on an individual level.

How Are Patients in Drug Rehab Centres Cured
Most drug rehabilitation centres adopt a set of systematic measures to cure their patients. Some of them are:
Planning Individual Program
The individualized treatment program starts with the user being made aware of their condition and the possible implications if the behaviour is continued. After the patient has attained sufficient knowledge of their condition, they are taught the necessary skills that assist them in achieving prolonged abstinence during and after the treatment.
During this stage, the patients have to complete their administrative processes while leaving the treatment facility. A right rehab centre also offers final assessment facilities to provide additional guidance to patients, ensuring they’re ready to begin their new life.
The fight against substance does not stop after stepping out of rehab. After achieving sobriety, patients may need routine follow-up therapy and counselling sessions to resist temptation and handle environmental triggers. The aftercare programme helps the patients to maintain their long streak of abstinence even after leaving the rehabilitation centre. Some drug rehabilitation centres even provide aftercare services by third-party aftercare suppliers for the convenience of the patient.
Just like aftercare service, regular engagement with other warriors of drug use helps patients to motivate themselves in practising self-control even after leaving the rehab centre. During this phase, former patients are encouraged to maintain strong relationships with their family members and friends who helped them complete the rehab successfully.
