How to Choose the Right Rehab for your Needs
  • Quality
  • The physicians in charge of providing care to the
    patients specialize in that aspect. Also, check
    if there are is more than one such physician.
  • Different types of treatments should be available
    and most of them, if not all, should be
    effective.
  • Patients are provided with regular sessions and
    plenty of treatment sessions throughout the
    duration of the rehab.
  • The program is operating legally and has been
    licensed.

5
Alcohol Rehab Selecting The Right Program
  • Following questions should also be considered to
    select the right program
  • Which programs are covered by insurance?
  • Does the therapist have a license? Is the staff
    well trained?
  • Do they offer a sample treatment plan that can
    showcase the therapies and treatments that would
    be given?
  • Is medical services offered in the program?
  • Would there be an aftercare service after the
    completion of the program?

6
What to Expect at An Alcohol Rehab Program?
  • Detox
  • The first step of the rehab treatment is
    detoxification. This process happens under the
    supervision of a physician. In numerous cases,
    the individual has a serious dependency on
    alcohol and requires careful and gradual
    detoxification. The physician takes measures in
    ensuring that abrupt elimination is avoided as it
    can lead to high levels of stress and even a
    relapse.
  • Therapies
  • Depending on the situation of the individual,
    different therapies are provided. Typically, one
    has to go through the following three therapies
  • Individual Therapy
  • Group Therapy
  • Pharmacological Therapy

7
What to Expect at An Alcohol Rehab Program?
  • Monitoring
  • Numerous alcohol rehab programs include regular
    toxicology monitoring and screening. This is
    achieved through different tests including tests
    including breath, blood, and urine.
  • Rehabilitation
  • Many individuals enrolled in rehab programs are
    also full-time employees, but there are some who
    join these programs unemployed and also have few
    skills. Therefore, vocational rehabilitation
    services are also included in the treatment plan.
    This way, individuals can learn useful skills
    that can assist them in finding the right jobs
    once they fully recover.
  • Family Meetings
  • Addiction to alcohol is known to lead to strained
    relationships with loved ones. This is why rehab
    program also provide family therapy and meetings
    that can help the individuals in strengthening
    their relationships. This enhances family
    unification, which plays a major role in the
    positive recovery of the individual. This
    includes various services like childcare,
    parenting education, and family counseling.

8
What Makes an Addiction Counselor an Effective
one?
  • Empathy vs. Sympathy
  • According to this study on professional
    counselors, a counselor who will effectively
    treat their patients needs to be empathetic.
    Sympathy, on the other hand, is one of the least
    important traits your counselor would need.
  • Other Qualities in an Effective Addiction
    Counselor
  • Besides showing empathy, your counselor should
    have much more to fall back upon than
    certification and a license. If the treatment is
    to be effective, then your counselor needs to
    have patience. An effective counselor knows that
    the road to recover isnt an easy one. It would
    take their patients much time and considerable
    effort to get addiction off their backs. Their
    goal should be to be there with you throughout
    the process, including the time when you finally
    get there!
  • Effective counselors also know the importance of
    trust. A person battling an addiction wont
    easily put their trust in just anyone. The
    cousnelor would have to work with them in order
    to establish trust. Only then would the patient
    even think about opening up to their counselors!

What Makes an Addiction Counselor an Effective
one?
  • Principles of Addiction Counselling
  • One of these principles is discussed in detail
    below no single treatment is going to be
    effective for everyone.
  • Another principle involves the counselor being
    available to provide treatment to their patients
    regularly. If they cant be there when there
    patients needs them the most, then the process
    might take much longer.
  • Lastly, if addiction counseling is to be
    effective, then the counselor should work with
    the patient to understand the degree of
    complexity of the disorder. If they know how far
    they have to go, it could give the patients some
    much needed hope.
  • What Worked for One Might Not Work for the Other
  • Different kinds of addiction counseling are
    offered at different facilities. Some of them
    have 12-step addiction programs to help the
    patients. Others will focus on family counseling
    sessions believing the support of the loved ones
    can strengthen a patients resolve. An effective
    counselor would know that each patient is going
    to be different.

Addiction Counseling and Other Important Stepping
Stones on the Road to Recovery
  • Deciding to Get Clean Sober
  • If you are under the care of a primary care
    physician, then you should consult with them
    before you decide anything. Their dependence on
    drugs, alcohol etc. might make it difficult to
    withdraw from a substance. The doctor might even
    be able to recommend a good addiction counselor
    to you.
  • Deciding to Get Clean Sober
  • If you are under the care of a primary care
    physician, then you should consult with them
    before you decide anything. Their dependence on
    drugs, alcohol etc. might make it difficult to
    withdraw from a substance. The doctor might even
    be able to recommend a good addiction counselor
    to you.
  • From Being Sober to Recovery
  • Dont think of recovery as a transformation of
    who you are as a person. You might think you will
    change and become someone greater than who used
    to be. Youd want all the friends and family that
    you have lost along the way to return to you. You
    might evenwant to get better quickly so you can
    go back to working. Such thoughts do not make the
    right combination for healing.

11
Is Your Addiction Counselor Qualified to Treat
You?
  • Education
  • Before they can become a licensed addiction
    counselor, a person must have an Associates,
    Bachelors, or a graduate degree. Since there
    isnt a specific degree path that is needed to
    become an abuse counselor, there would be a
    difference in the subjects and courses that many
    counselors will study. Most of them will have
    studied the subjects of sociology, psychology,
    and others related to mental health and
    wellbeing.
  • Certification
  • Certification isnt always required though it is
    usually recommended in the case of potential
    addiction counselors. While state law will
    dictate the need for certification, some
    counselors will also look for additional
    certification. If your counselor has, then you
    might be looking at someone with a good set of
    skills and the right level of motivation to help
    their patients.
  • Experience
  • Dont worry that you would be handed off to a
    green addiction counselor. Even though, each
    counselor will gain more experience the longer
    they practice, novices will receive training.
    They will be allowed to learn and acquire the
    necessary skills before they are deemed ready to
    listen to patients.

12
Is Your Addiction Counselor Right for You?
  • Start Looking
  • Finding the right addiction counselor could be as
    simple as looking up the local professionals in
    your area on the internet. Do some research, find
    out the kind of addictions they have helped
    others with, and then make an appointment.
  • Alternatively, you could know someone, such as
    your doctor, a friend, or a loved one, who can
    recommend one to you. If you set value by their
    opinion, why not pay the counselor a visit to see
    if they are the best match for you.
  • Check Credentials
  • Are they who they say they are?
  • Do they have the right degree associated with
    this profession?
  • Do they have a license to practice?
  • Is the license still valid?
  • Check Reviews
  • If you want to know whether the addiction
    counselor of your choice can help you or not,
    simply ask! Dont just ask them. You also need to
    ask the other people with problems similar to
    yours whom the counselor may have treated. The
    best way of doing that is by checking reviews
    online.
