Significant psychopathological treatments are also continued within the addiction rehab. The programs provide the patients with the necessary education to support themselves outside the facility when the treatment procedure finishes. Detoxification phase lasts for about 2 weeks. This is not the end. The patients then have to learn abstinence procedures.During this stage the patients are brought into contact with the treatment counselor from time to time. On a one-on-one session with the counselor the addicts discuss the issues triggering their use.
They stabilize their craving by learning to forget and forgive the instances, which have brought forth the problem. They create a list of their moral inventory and engage them to change the negatives attributes within them. This should be continued as long as the patients are not completely being able to take the right decision for them. Outside the facility, the society is neither so much forgiving nor it has the proper disciplinary environment like the facility itself.
It is important to focus on the issues and the situation that would be common. Their might be friends who the patients have to avoid or events which they have to face and yet learn to say ‘no' to use of the drug. Over and above the patients are also engaged to group meeting which are headed by the counselor. The counselor must see that the client participating in the group meetings are able to deliver well within the group meeting with the hypothetical situations.
Monitoring and discussing the issues close to their heart and which triggers the use can bring certain solutions. This would ensure that even after the addicts are outside the addiction rehab, they can stay away and enjoy a full life. It is only possible if they engage in different activities and put themselves in association to different community services which satisfy them. For financial independence the addicts must look for a job. This is sometimes provided by the treatment center. They have counselors who are well suited to provide part-time and fulltime jobs for their clients. Encouraging clients to participate in self-help programs provides answers to the the client's questions about the philosophy of treatment and life, which is important.
