What to Expect in Rehab

Deciding to seek treatment from a professional rehab center is a difficult choice to make. Grappling with substance abuse or behavioral addictions can take a tremendous toll on our bodies, minds, relationships, work performance, and overall approach to life. Leaving behind self-defeating habits can feel even more exhausting and overwhelming, especially if we decide to undergo that process alone.

A treatment facility, like The Guest House, can make the path to wellness much easier to tackle. A rehab facility provides you with the sanctuary you need while you rest and recover. It also provides you with the tools you need to continue on the path to wellness when you return to your day-to-day life. However, many of us who have never experienced treatment wonder what to expect from our time in a rehab facility. Read on to learn more.

What to Expect in a Rehab Facility

Substance abuse and behavioral addictions can be terrifying to confront. The good news is that studies have shown that these conditions can be treated and managed to a very high degree. Rehab can only help increase the odds of living a healthy life free of self-defeating behaviors. Treatment centers, also commonly referred to as “rehab,” are welcoming places, free of judgment and assumptions.

Initial Screening

When first deciding to enter rehab, a person will go through an open-minded screening process. This process is designed solely to understand what a client may need and what they have been combatting. From there, a plan will be devised to help the client find the best possible path to well-being. That’s it.

No one person is the same. The first step in treatment is understanding the individual. We all have different disorders for many different reasons. In response, places like The Guest House design treatment around the individual, not the diagnosis.

Treatment Options

While you are allowing your mind and body to heal in a setting that takes care of your physical needs (food, sleep, exercise), you are also receiving treatment at the highest level. Numerous therapeutic modalities employed in rehab are designed to address your specific needs.

Individual and group therapy are standard practices. In addition to those, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR), equine therapy, and somatic therapy are just a few of the many therapeutic options available. With the help of trained medical professionals, you will spend your time in rehab, receiving as many treatments as you need to help you heal and set out on a life free of substance abuse or behavioral addictions.

After Rehab

Your time in rehab will teach you that, no matter what, you will always have people who care about your best interests. Not only will you learn this from the staff who are dedicating their lives to the health and wellness of others, but you will also learn it from fellow clients just like yourself. You’ll come to understand that the burdens of life are not just yours to bear and that there is always someone who wants to help.

Rehab facilities like The Guest House offer a wider variety of treatments. We also offer the chance to address your issues in a safe place. Receiving treatment and healing in a peaceful setting that removes you from your potential triggers and stresses increases the odds that the treatment will set in. If you or someone you love struggles with self-defeating behaviors or substance addiction, finding a safe place to heal can make a world of difference.
