On the Road to Wellness, Detox is Only the First Stage

by Luxury Rehab Drug and alcohol rehab

First of all, congratulations! Making the decision to lead a well and healthy life is a great start. But this is one of those journeys where it pays to know from the beginning what is the road you're about to travel. Before you set out you need to be as prepared as you can be.

Detox is where you start

The first stage is to rid the body of whatever it was that was your habit. This is a process, like anything else, and how long it takes and what the implications are dependent on what you were using - and if you indulged in a cocktail it gets complicated. Getting specialist help makes sense. But once you have been through detox, it is time to get serious.

Step two: recovery

Recovery is a process. It starts from shaky beginnings when you are quite vulnerable and from there you build on each day, one after the next. Every day you stay sober is a win. Every day you don't succumb is kudos and determination personified.

How to make recovery work for you

In general terms, recovery is about understanding yourself and what the triggers were and being in a situation where you’re well enough to avoid them. However, of course it gets complicated. It all depends on what you have used and also why you were using.

Getting the best help

There are recovery centers that will help you kick start the process. These are facilities with staff who understand the situation – some of whom may have even walked a mile in your shoes are there to help. The concept is that you are comfortable and supported in an environment which is totally without judgement – but will give you the foundations to get well and stay that way for the rest of your life.

Choosing the treatment

There are many different treatment types and which one is right for you depends on your personal circumstances. That’s usually where the staff at the recovery center will start – with a full understanding of you. With that, they will recommend a program specifically tailored to your needs and long-term health.

Perhaps in your case the whole program will be as an outpatient. If you can take the time to get away, there are residential programs too. They key is finding what works for you for the rest of your life.
