Rehab Options: All About Private Detox and Rehabilitation Centers


Anyone struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction should turn to professionals for help. Depending on the type and extent of the addiction, patients have a variety of options for the treatment they receive. Some patients can find success with outpatient rehab, while others need a more involved solution. Private rehab centers like ours are one option for people who need treatment to break the addiction cycle. Many private rehabilitation centers also operate as private detox centers, offering patients a safe and comfortable medical detox to separate physically from an addiction to alcohol or drugs.

At private drug rehab centers, patients typically receive a full course of treatment that begins by addressing the physical addiction symptoms. Many patients need to start with medically supervised detox to begin the journey toward recovery. An evaluation during the intake process will determine the best course of treatment for each person. During intake, a professional will ask questions to learn about the addiction and formulate a customized treatment plan to meet the needs of the patient.

After intake and admission at private rehab centers such as ours, patients are given a tour and settle into their accommodations. A complete physical is performed to identify any underlying health problems that will need to be addressed during treatment. Detox then begins to help a patient through the process of eliminating the drugs or alcohol from the body. This process can take just a few days or a week or two, depending on a patient’s health and the severity of the addiction. Some patients need medication to help with the detox process, which helps lessen the cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

Once patients complete the medically assisted detox process, the focus turns to therapy and counseling to address the underlying reasons for the addiction. This therapy typically involves group, individual, and family sessions. The counseling will help patients identify the triggers that often led to drug or alcohol use in the past. Counselors help patients learn new and healthy coping strategies to deal with these triggers in a way that doesn’t involve drugs or alcohol. Private alcohol rehab clinics also prepare patients for success after discharge by scheduling therapy sessions that will continue after leaving the facility. Checking in with a therapist to explore feelings and struggles after discharge from private rehabilitation centers is an integral part of staying sober after rehab.
