We have helped countless struggling addicts to overcome their addiction with our comprehensive treatment protocols.
The initial step of our program is our detox process. After an individual has abused an addictive substance for a regular period of time a dependence occurs and takes over. Once dependence or addiction has developed it can be unsafe to abruptly discontinue use without professional assistance from a medical detoxification process. Habit-forming substances such as alcohol, valium, cocaine, heroin, meth, demerol, fentanyl and many others produce a wide range of withdrawal effects such as anxiety, agitation, muscle aches, insomnia, vomiting, sweating, abdominal cramping, diarrhea, nausea, lethargy and other symptoms.
At Drug Treatment Center Drexel Heights we provide the needed medical services and support to make our clients as comfortable as possible in the detox process. We offer 24 hour around the clock care during this very important first phase in the rehabilitation process. Our clients often say that they feel a renewed sense of hope after they have completed our detox phase of the program.
An essential part of recovering from addiction is to acknowledge that you have a problem. A person who refuses to accept they are addicted cannot take strides to fix the problem they deny they have. For many, when it comes down to confronting their addiction situation, also requires the individual to look at why and how they got addicted in the first place. Addiction commonly happens when a person starts taking the drug or alcohol to self-medicate in order to minimize negative thoughts, feelings, and emotions. If a person doesn't figure out the source issues guiding their addiction and does not reach out for help, it will typically be harder for them to conquer their addiction.
Acknowledging that you have a problem is an extremely important first step of recovery from drug addiction or alcoholism. In addition you also need to have the desire to do what is needed to change your life. Taking inventory of the reasons for making a change will help you navigate the road to rehabilitation. Many find it helpful to write down why they want to put an end to their addiction. Reasons might include wanting to be a better mother/father, experience more joy in life, to be the person you really want to be, repair damaged relationships, to improve your health, or to simply repair the damage caused by your addiction.
Do not just focus on the problems caused by your addiction, as focusing in on the negative consequences of the past usually makes you feel depressed and hopeless. Instead, embrace your new addiction-free life and the recovery process. Focus on the positive things that will surely materialize when you have recovered from addiction.

A future accomplishing past forgotten dreams and goals in your new drug-free lifestyle. You will be healthier, have more energy and enthusiasm, be more secure financially, have stable relationships, be more productive overall, and have time to enjoy and explore new hobbies and recreation. Taking the time to write down these goals can keep you motivated throughout the recovery process.
Long Term Rehabilitation goals
