Most rehabilitation programs accept an addict based on their level of initiative to solve the problem at hand. The drug abuser must recognize their problem and consciously seek the help of loved ones and professionals on their own before than can receive effective assistance. Often times, friends and family will try to initiate a positive lifestyle change in their loved one, but denial will keep him or her from admitting or even recognizing the need for help. However, once he or she has recognized that need and has established a supportive base, it may be time to seek a rehabilitation program.

A successful rehabilitation program will target not only the user’s possible physical dependency on the substance, but also their psychological dependency. The support group or trained professional in a successful rehabilitation program will help the abuser disassociate himself or herself from people, places and situations that may lead to further use.
Among the various types of rehab programs available, addicts can enlist in residential treatment, inpatient care, outpatient care, local support groups, extended care centers, and recovery or sober houses. A successful drug rehabilitation program will not only target the specific use of the substance, but also enabling behaviors and situations. Counseling in drug rehab aims to eliminate these factors as well as target any history that may have aided in initiating addictive behaviors. Because addiction is usually a chronic condition, it is not possible for someone to simply stop using drugs and be cured. Beating an addiction usually takes a few return trips to rehabilitation plus the consistent attention of a support group to really be effective.
