What is addiction rehab and how does it work?

Any addiction is a disease that requires treatment and correction by qualified professionals. Addiction is considered an obsessive, pathologically strong desire to perform actions that lead to a certain mental state, most often to relaxation, satisfaction and comfort.
There are two main types of addiction: chemical (from drugs or alcohol) and non-chemical (psychological, behavioral).
Each addiction leads to complex physical and mental complications, such as:

  • physical and psychological exhaustion of the body
  • dissatisfaction of personal and social needs
  • violation of social interaction
  • fatal consequences, etc.
It is important to understand that addictions can easily flow into one another. For example, a gambling addict may become addicted to alcohol, or a person who has recovered from alcohol addiction may become addicted to gambling.

Rehabilitation is the way to restore a person's life course and an opportunity to get rid of addictions once and for all.

Rehabilitation involves the use of a program that is safe for health, aimed at the recovery of a person. The main goal of this process is to overcome all objections to the presence of addiction in the patient, to restore the patient's personal and social status, as well as his psychological state. Rehabilitation involves a complete rejection of the use of any means or harmful habits caused by addiction, as well as a change in relationships with the surrounding world and the acquisition of spiritual experience.

The rehabilitation process is a path to personal independence, so the sooner the treatment phase begins, the sooner the moment of complete freedom from addiction will come.
