How does rehab work? Addiction rehabs are structured treatment programs aimed at helping those struggling with addiction.

What to look for when searching for drugs and alcohol assessments near me?

It pays to do your homework while looking for the top drug and alcohol evaluations around. Most people who need drug and alcohol examinations are already struggling with substance misuse.

It is possible that the individual seeking treatment for substance misuse is already unwilling or resistant to discussing it. This seems sensible given that addiction has significantly altered their brain’s chemistry. It prompts people to seek drugs continually and organize their lives so they can use drugs. If someone feels this way, you should begin the talk in a low-stress private setting. They have ample time to confide in one another about what is going on inside of them.

How does rehab work?

In many instances, rehab such as We Level Up NJ is somewhat flexible in our treatment offerings, which may be customized to the needs of each client. Addiction rehab often involves some combination of detoxification (detox), group and individual substance abuse therapy, relapse prevention education, and aftercare planning prior to program completion in order to help people maintain long-term sobriety.

What is substance abuse therapy?

Addiction rehab continues with diverse behavioral therapeutic interventions after the medically assisted detox is complete. People in rehab participate in individual and group therapy sessions to recognize and address the underlying causes of their addiction. Treatment programs also educate clients on how to identify high-risk situations and triggers and develop relapse prevention skills to maintain sobriety.

Is insurance accepted?

Most private insurance is often accepted in rehab programs. However, the extent of coverage may differ according to the particular facility. Your insurance plan may cover only a portion of your rehabilitation stay, so it’s important to check your insurance plan prior to enrolling in a rehab program.

If your insurance plan does not cover the cost of the addiction rehab, you can discuss other payment options with the facility you choose. The program may offer sliding scale payment options or financing plans to make the cost more manageable.

How does rehab work? How does addiction inpatient treatment work?

Inpatient rehab facilities are rehab centers that offer 24-hour care from staff personnel. Most inpatient services have medical staff members present at all times and, though many residential rehabs have on-staff medical professionals present throughout the day, they can make arrangements for additional medical attention when needed. Both types of inpatient rehab centers require patients to live at the facility.

Inpatient treatment settings provide the most intensive of treatment services. Inpatient programs provide an immersive treatment environment that allows patients to fully focus on their addiction and recovery with 24-hour care and supervision. Since clients are somewhat removed from the stress of their daily lives, they may be in a better position to work through their addiction issues.

Rehab programs can include group therapy, individual therapy, medication-assisted treatment, and even complementary therapies such as meditation, animal therapy, or outdoor activities.

Those with long-standing or severe addictions, addictions to multiple substances, or with coexisting medical and mental health conditions often seek an inpatient rehab facility for treatment. It may also be a good option for those who have made previous rehab efforts and have since relapsed.

Holistic Therapy FAQs at We Level Up NJ

Why should you consider a holistic drug rehab for yourself or a loved one?

Addiction is a progressive disease. The amount of drug or alcohol used, the damage was done in terms of health, well-being, the frequency and consistency of use, and one’s relationship with others follow a predictable path. There may be brief pauses where it all seems manageable, but they are almost always followed by a worsening of circumstances, further despair and isolation, and confusion at how all of this could have ever happened again.

Addiction, whether to alcohol, heroin, prescription pills, or other opioids, or stimulants, is almost consistently too powerful for someone to overcome on their own. In its early stages, this often isn’t obvious to the user or others, and there is little incentive to stop.

As drug dependency grows, the user might see signs to moderate or stop, but the payoff for continuing the drug in question (to the user) outweighs the costs, and in spite of all the consequences, the user will continue to use. Lopsided perception will gain its own speed and is usually only interrupted by an unexpected moment of clarity where the user
suddenly achieves a reasonable view on his or her condition, or by an external event like an arrest, intervention, or accident.

Because we at We Level Up NJ know that addiction is a three-fold disease—one of mind, body, and spirit—we have designed our treatment program to manage each of these factors in order to treat the person as a whole.

How Does Rehab Work
How does rehab work? Many people worry about how the addiction rehab process will affect their lives—the unknown can be scary.

Does holistic drug treatment work?

Part of the user’s lopsided philosophy involves a sense of personal uniqueness: Nobody knows how I’m feeling; My case is different; I just have a prescription pill problem, but I’m not a drug addict.

Underlying the shallow characteristics of which drug is involved, or what the circumstances might be, are a host of beliefs, feelings, and tendencies that provide a commonality that often surprises the addict in recovery. And when these are addressed, revealed as non-unique, and healed, the addict finds a new commonality in recovery from those very issues that drove addiction in the first place.

What is the holistic rehab model?

Because these underlying causes and conditions persist even when drugs and alcohol are removed from the addict’s system, the detox phase of treatment is inadequate to prevent the addict from relapsing. To be effective, detox should be followed by a long-term holistic treatment program designed not only to provide a conducive environment for recovery for the addict but also to address the problems underlying their addiction. Once the physical component of the three-fold disease has been handled through detoxification, We Level Up NJ’s holistic rehab model will address the mental and behavioral components.

It takes a nurturing, compassionate environment to fully enable an addict to open up and allow the demons, metaphorically speaking, driving his or her addiction to be exposed. The inner exploration necessary for healing becomes a journey, often fraught with uncomfortably and even pain, but it is one filled with excitement and fulfillment for the addict and his or her entire family and friends.

Is holistic therapy really catching on in the united states?

Because of the internet, plus an increasing number of stories in which holistic rehab approaches have found significant success, holistic therapy is indeed quickly catching on throughout the United States.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) [1], about 17.9% of Americans used non-vitamin, non-mineral dietary supplements, 8.5% used chiropractic or osteopathic manipulation, 8.4% used yoga, 6.8% used massages, 4.1% used meditation, and 3% used special diets (vegan, etc.).

Is there any science backing the idea of holistic therapy?

Holistic therapies have been used in many Eastern countries for thousands of years, and while the statistical data is not always there to support holistic therapy, that is due largely to the fact that there is very limited scientific data that exists before the turn of the 20th century. Nevertheless, there are countless stories about holistic approaches to working in countries like China to India.

Not only that, but it is proven that the food we put into our bodies, the environment we live in, and the exercises we practice have an impact on our overall mental, physical, emotional & spiritual health. The fields of Integrative Medicine and Functional Medicine have been growing in popularity as well, as each of these fields utilizes a more holistic approach.

In addition, “Mindfulness Meditation”, which was brought to the United States by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, and is now used in hospitals around the country to help people with a variety of mental issues and physical ailments.

What are the elements of holistic therapy?

As the Western world continues to learn about holistic therapy, there are a number of elements to consider: Nutritionists can help individuals learn about the foods that are good and bad for them, meditation can help get our mental and physiological states into order, while yoga and acupuncture are useful for treating specific issues that affect the body’s health. Detox facilities are also an important place for substance abusers to be surrounded by a supportive and understanding community.

How To Get Time Off Of Work

How do I get time off of work to attend rehab?

Most inpatient addiction rehab programs require taking some time off from work. However, there are several options that can help ease this process. These include:

What is an Employee Assistance Program?

An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a voluntary program through your employer, which provides confidential assessments, limited counseling, and referrals to treatment at no cost to the employee.

What is the Family and Medical Leave Act?

Most employers offer up to 12 weeks of leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which allows you to take unpaid time off without affecting your health insurance in order to seek treatment for a medical condition that interferes with your ability to complete work-related tasks. Substance use disorders fall under this category, so it could be beneficial to understand what your company offers.

What is Paid Time Off?

Another option for taking time away from work to get help with substance abuse is to simply use accrued vacation, sick, or personal time to seek treatment.
