What is rehabilitation?
Generally, rehabilitation in healthcare is the process of helping individuals to improve, maintain or restore physical strength and mobility. This type of rehabilitation helps us gain independence after any illness, injury or surgery.
But in mental healthcare, rehabilitation can also be used to help an individual overcome dependency on alcohol or drugs, manage mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and many other disorders. This process helps in giving a better quality of life to the person suffering from such illnesses.
Why should I look at rehabilitation?
Many times, it becomes very difficult to manage mental disorders or overcome alcoholism or drug addiction. As you or your loved one faces this difficult situation, it becomes extremely hard to see the correct perspective on what steps to take to become well again. Rehabilitation helps in restoring mental and physical well being by using a combination of short and long-term therapies and medication giving a big impact on your recovery.
How do I choose a good rehabilitation centre?
Choosing a good rehabilitation centre or programme whether for alcoholism or drug addiction issues can be difficult. With so many options out there and with little or no guidance, zeroing on one facility might be quick but the care given can come up short. It is very important to find a programme or facility that fits well with your individual situation and preferences; the likelihood of recovery is higher.
Finding that perfect rehabilitation centre
Consult your doctor first. She/he will be the best to guide on whether you will need short or a long-term rehabilitation programme. Once this is clear, the next step is to look for the ideal facility to help you overcome your addiction.
Talk to your doctor. With her/his experience and exposure to the services offered by rehabilitation facilities, the success rates are also verified. This helps in narrowing down the right facility for you or your loved one. Statistically, it has been proven that the longer a patient remains in rehabilitation, the greater the chance they won’t suffer a relapse when they return home.
Short- and long-term residential rehabilitation treatments for alcohol and drug deaddiction come in various forms.
It is important to know that good rehabilitation facilities are not located in a hospital setting. These rehab facilities are set in a modern and comfortable environment, and staffed with qualified healthcare professionals. They can also provide various types of programs on a 24/7, 365 days basis with care and behavioral monitoring, full staff participation in the recovery process, and tailored programs that are designed to fulfill the needs of the patient.
Some are holistic programmes that approach treatment from a whole-body and mind perspective, incorporating various natural therapies and or medications to promote overall health and contentment like Cadabam’s Amitha. There is also Cadabam’s Anunitha that offers rehabilitation care for men. This helps in focusing on recovery without distractions from the opposite sex and to address certain issues that are particular to their gender.
Once you have figured out a facility with all the above perspectives, a visit is a must. Once you visit and see the work that the facility is undertaking giving care, its success rates, team of counsellors and doctors – it becomes easier to settle on the right facility.
Now that you know what it takes for you or your loved one to take the next step in overcoming your addiction, no time should be wasted. Once you are on the road to recovery, life takes on new dimensions adding meaning and purpose.
