Detox is a necessary step in recovery for individuals breaking an addiction
to alcohol, opiates, cocaine, and other recreational drugs that create
powerful physical dependencies with continued use. In order to succeed
in rehab, individuals may undergo an
inpatient detox program, which will reduce cravings for illicit substances while cleansing the
body of drugs and alcohol.
Following detox and rehab, you might enter an intensive outpatient program
or partial hospitalization program, depending on your unique needs and
schedule. While entering either program, you can create a smooth transition
by working closely with the staff of your rehabilitation center to express
your concerns and get to know the next steps in your care. One of the
biggest challenges in the transition may be moving from an inpatient program
to living at home or in a sober living center, where there might be higher
temptation to relapse. Having an emergency strategy in place will help
prevent relapse so you can continue to make positive steps in your recovery.
