SAN DIEGO, May 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- There are many different choices when it comes to choosing drug rehabilitation programs. Researching and eventually deciding on a drug rehabilitation center that best suits the individual patient’s needs is also a critical part in achieving and maintaining a life that is drug and alcohol free.

If you have decided that you yourself need help from a drug treatment center, or are seeking information for a friend or loved one, it’s important to first identify what type of drug or alcohol treatment program the person will need. Some severely addicted drug or alcohol users may need an inpatient drug treatment center that lasts from a few months to over a year. Others may need an inpatient or short-stay drug rehab center that lasts only for a few weeks. There is also the option of outpatient drug rehab counseling, where the person with the substance abuse problem can consistently attend drug rehab counseling and group meetings at a local drug treatment center. Some people may initially need an inpatient drug treatment center, which is then followed up by outpatient drug rehabilitation counseling. There are many combinations of drug rehab programs within drug treatment centers. For recovery and abstinence it to happen and last, it’s so important that you find the right rehab with the necessary components that you, or the one you are helping, need to successfully recover and overcome addiction.

Here is a list of the most general components necessary for a successful drug treatment center:

- Initial testing in order to determine the severity of the substance addiction correctly recommend programs within the drug rehab center

- Educating the patients on the new coping mechanisms to enable them to reenter society as a productive person (e.g. maintains a job, pay appropriate bills, stress management, etc…)

- Adequate follow-up or after care once initial program at the drug treatment program is completed

- Reminding the patient of how much support they have behind them, even after the drug rehab program at the drug and alcohol treatment center is over. Support is a critically important tool in coping with daily life, especially for one who has had a problem with addiction.
