Drug and alcohol dependence can be effectively treated using detoxification, which helps you withdraw safely and comfortably from substances, and rehab, which helps rectify problematic behavior and achieve sobriety. Detox allows you to withdraw from drugs and alcohol under the care and supervision of trained medical staff who can intervene at any time to reduce the risk for complications. Some drug rehab centers may use medications as part of detox to relieve some or all withdrawal symptoms, as well as to make your recovery more comfortable.

Detox methods that may be available at Atlantic City rehab centers include:2 .Medical detox, Social detox.Tapering, if applicable (generally used for sedatives)

Detox can take place in either an inpatient or outpatient setting, though hospitalization or 24/7 medical care is generally recommended for those recovering from addiction to opioids, alcohol, and sedatives like benzodiazepines.2 If you suffer from a mild to moderate alcohol addiction, your withdrawal symptoms may be treated successfully at an outpatient alcohol rehab or detox center. It’s important to remember that detox alone is not a substitute for comprehensive substance abuse treatment. Once you are stabilized, you’ll want to transition into an addiction treatment program that can address the reasons you began abusing drugs in the first place.

Discovery Point Retreat

They Accomadated every need for My Son from Day he made his decision to seek help. He flew to Texas and was picked up at the airport by staff. I was allowed to see him the very next day, visitation were just about over but they let us have a visit anyways. Rooms are spacious and may not be a facility as someone stated but the House is Large,spacious, clean, and just has that home,secure, quiet, inviting feel. The are is perfect quiet and serene. Therapy and couseling on site my son loved everything about the way the had control of everything that was in his best interest. The staff, The Chef, The People i always knew how his progress was coming along and even included in therapy sessions. My son understand about addiction,the triggers,the control and the reason and maintains his sobriety, contact with others that were also in treatment with him, He considers all of them as family. Everyone there made him feel so comfortable, important and loved. At check out it took us all day for him to get everything together because he was truly going to miss Everything and Everyone, ( The Food) The outings, The Therapy, The couseling . The Owners, Management, The Staff I commend on The excellent job they are doing The are all Truly a Blessing. Strengths: Their knowledge in all areas of helping everyone. Knowing exactly what each persons individual needs are from The addiction ,the emotional, therapeutic, dietary. Weakness: Sober Living facility. I think my son was probably sent to the worst one. Was told he had to have a job within 2 weeks or going to be kicked out while another individual was there before him, still there and still unemployed. My son working 3rd shift going to sleep at 6 a.m. was woken up anyways for meditation at 7 even though he just worked at 12 hour shifts ( inconsiderate) people were eating his groceries. And managers of the house had dogs and dog hair everywhere and were offended that he mention about the dogs being all over furniture. Cardinal House of Dalls/Garland definitely Not recommended and was really in awe that Discovery Point Retreat would even be affiliated with a place like that. That would be the only negative on them with me.

Sojourn House

Rigid schedule . Too far from home to be able to visit regularly on the scheduled visit days once a week. Son was court ordered to go to Sojourn House for treatment. We were pleased with the staff there. Things were explained to us well.

The Difference Between Residential and Outpatient recovery program Rehab

Traditional inpatient drug rehabilitation programs last for 28 to 30 days; however, specific program length will vary according to the individual patient. Inpatient programs are designed with severe substance abuse problems in mind. Here are some of the reasons why residential treatment might be considered the best option for a particular addict:

  • History of relapse following outpatient treatment
  • Heavy, consistent drug use
  • Physical dependence on substances
  • Mental or physical health conditions
  • Social impairments

Outpatient recovery program drug and alcohol rehab can include everything from methadone therapy to individual psychiatric counseling to 12-step programs. Often, outpatient and residential treatment programs are combined, with addicts entering outpatient treatment once they check out of the residential facility. Addicts with serious family or work commitments may find outpatient treatment to be more feasible with their lifestyles.

Defining the Success of Drug Rehabilitation

Experts identify a successful recovery from drug and alcohol dependence based on a number of different factors, including:

  • Improvements in workplace functioning
  • Reduction in drug-related accidents or injuries
  • Increased educational success
  • Better overall health
  • Abstinence from drugs and alcohol
  • Fewer relapse incidents, with longer periods of time between relapses
  • Better mood and mental health
