Drug Rehab Treatment Questions

Entering drug or alcohol rehab can be very daunting. It can also be the most important decision you ever make in your life. Going to treatment is a huge commitment that will change your life in ways you can not imagine.

Whether or not you are ready, there are many things that you will need to take into account. Regardless of if you are scared, ready, or intimidated, millions of people have gone through the same process. You will never be alone in this process, so we have answered some of the most common questions.

What Can I Bring to Drug Rehab?

It is common to want to know what you can bring to the treatment program. Each drug rehab center will have a list of permitted and prohibited items. You must contact the treatment center to learn what is allowed. Typically, every treatment center provides bed sheets, meals, snacks, and beverages.

Must Have’s

  • Comfortable and appropriate clothing
  • Hygiene products and toiletries
  • Journal
  • ID/passport

Commonly Prohibited Items

  • Drugs
  • Alcohol
  • Electronic devices including cell phones and personal computers
  • Weapons
  • Clothing depicting drug use, alcohol use, or offensive language
  • Cosmetic products containing alcohol
  • Aerosol products
  • Media such as movies, tapes, music, cameras, or card games not related to recovery

Do I Need Rehab?

If you are concerned about whether or not you need rehab, you may need to look at yourself and ask why you are considering it. If you have recently lost your job, or your family and friends do not speak to you due to your substance use, you most likely need to go to rehab. You should not need to lose everything in your life to go to rehab. If you have any hint of a problem, it is better to stop it before it worsens.

Can I Get Clean on My Own?

It is not to say that it is impossible to obtain sobriety on your own, but it can make it much more difficult. Try to seek professional help if you can because it will make different stages, such as detox, much more comfortable. Medically supervised detox programs help to reduce painful withdrawal symptoms that occur with many drugs and alcohol. Not only will it be easier to get through with the help of professionals, but medically assisted detox allows you to do so safely.

Am I Ready For Rehab?

You may never truly feel ready to go to rehab. Going to inpatient or outpatient drug rehab should be your choice if possible, but battling addiction takes more than desire and willpower. If you have tried to quit and have not been able to, then the support of a supervised recovery program can reduce the chances of relapse.

Should I Travel for Rehab?

Your rehab questions should be to find a center that can help you in the best way possible. Regardless of where you live, if there is a rehab that can better accommodate you a bit further away, you should go there. Sometimes traveling for rehab can also help you to get out of your comfort zone and immediate environment.

What Should I Expect on a Typical Day in Rehab?

Every rehab is different, but inpatient rehab programs often follow a specific and structured schedule, which may include:

  • attending various therapies throughout the day
  • one-on-one meetings
  • group activities
  • communal meals

You will also be able to enjoy your free time. During this time, you might want to write in your journal, meditate or pray, and even enjoy the center’s activities.

How Will My Family Handle Me Going to Rehab?

One of the main concerns you may have regarding rehab is how your family will handle your absence, especially if you have children or pets, which can be stressful.

Speak to family and friends to see if they will first take care of your responsibilities. If you do not have that option, then there are often non-profit, government, and private options. There are also options for different inpatient and outpatient levels of care.

Outpatient rehab will allow you to provide for your family and continue to sleep at home while still receiving treatment for your addiction. Overall, try to remember that your addiction’s long-term impacts will be worse than leaving your family for a month or two.

How Long Does Rehab Last?

Although the length of a treatment program depends on many factors, rehab’s most common lengths include 30, 60, and 90-day programs.
Factors that influence rehab include:

  • Severity of addiction
  • Length of total addiction
  • Financial options
  • Nature of addiction

Every rehab has pros and cons, but if your addiction is severe and has been occurring for a long time, you will need a more extended treatment program. Overall, medical detox will last 5-10 days. This will be an additional program that is before your rehab program begins.

How Do I Prepare for Rehab?

Every treatment program is different, but overall you will need to dedicate a fair amount of your life to the program. Preparing for treatment includes setting up family obligations, tying up any financial loose ends, ensuring anything with the law is settled, packing everything essential, and enjoying time with people you love.

What Happens After Rehab?

It is important to note that recovery is a lifelong process. Although your life truly begins when you step through the doors of your treatment center, your journey never ends. You will need to ensure that you take what you have learned in treatment and bring it to the real world. Sometimes sober living and group programs can help with that.

After treatment, you want to work to get your job back, gain trust again, stay sober, and handle any changes in your social life. You need to be aware that relapses are possible, and aftercare is essential.
