Joining a rehabilitation centre does not mean that you will get rid of the addiction in a day. It may take a few months, a year, or even more depending on the mentality of the person as well as the extent of addiction. When the habit has already started to harm our physical organs, the recovery process will be more stringent. But staying at the rehabilitation centre will be the best decision as it will help you to be under the constant monitoring of the expert practitioners. All the doctors there are not only medical practitioners but psychological experts too.
Nurturing healthy habits
When you remain under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you seldom know whether it is morning or night. So the routine of your life is the most unhealthy. To fight against addiction, you have to make your body strong first. As there has bee already some physical damages, you need to undergo proper medication. But there is no point of taking the medicines if you don’t follow the rest of the instructions of the therapist at the Drug Rehab. Medicines are never effective unless you lead a healthy lifestyle. The food that you will eat must have accurate proportions of the nutrients that your body needs the most at this time.
Complete change of lifestyle
The Rehab is all set to change the lifestyle completely. A day starting with yoga and meditation continues with group discussions and individual therapy. Reading sessions, music sessions, dance therapy- every possible means are available that can shift your focus from the addiction and redirect your positive energy in doing constructive things or nurturing positive ideas. It is not possible to change your habits overnight if you stay at home. Even if you have a strong determination, the addiction will not allow you to maintain the routine unless you are at a different place under strict vigil.
