Rehab Motivation

How to motivate a loved one to go to rehab? Does rehab treatment work? According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, about one-third of people who are treated for alcohol problems have no further symptoms 1 year later. Many others substantially reduce their drinking and report fewer alcohol-related problems. [1] While according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, drug addiction treatment dropout is one of the major problems encountered by treatment programs; therefore, motivational techniques that can keep patients engaged will also improve outcomes. By viewing addiction as a chronic disease and offering continuing care and monitoring, programs can succeed. But this will often require multiple episodes of treatment and readily readmitting patients that have relapsed. [2] Addiction is a complex but treatable disease that affects brain function and behavior.  Drugs of abuse alter the brain’s structure and function, resulting in changes that persist long after drug use has ceased. This may explain why drug abusers are at risk for relapse even after long periods of abstinence and despite the potentially devastating consequences. Get Your Life Back Find Hope & Recovery.
