There are many benefits to entering a residential drug rehabilitation treatment program including benefits that can help you at every stage of treatment including physically, mentally, and emotionally.
By electing to enter a residential drug rehab that offers medical detox, you are taking a step towards a better recovery process. Not only are you more likely to remain comfortable, but detoxifying under the supervision is safer than trying to detox cold turkey at home with professional help.
Mental Health Benefits
The type of psychotherapy treatment available will depend on the residential drug rehab treatment program that you attend. Mental health is relevant to being able to overcoming your substance abuse or addiction especially if you have a dual diagnosis.
While some programs may consider emotional health as part of a psychological or spiritual program, the fact is that emotional wellness is a very important benefit in residential drug rehab. Dealing with the issues that surround your drug abuse or addiction can create some discomfort and uneasiness; so, it is important that you feel emotionally safe and secure.
An additional benefit is being able to get away from you regular routine, from the stress of your job or school, the pressure of family and friends, and away from the temptations of your drug abuse or addiction, and focus on getting better.
Research shows that individuals that are successful in completing a drug rehab program are more likely to be successful in sobriety than individuals who do not go to a rehab program or are not able to complete a program.
