Inside Rohypnol Rehab
When you are seeking a rehab program for Rohypnol, be sure to find a facility that is committed to creating a program to meet your unique needs. If the facility you are looking at believes that one strategy is effective for all people, you may want to look elsewhere. Treatment programs with the greatest success are those that recognize that a program needs to be personalized for each person. A personalized program will incorporate a variety of traditional and non-traditional methods, may include strategies and techniques from both the Western and Eastern medical communities, and is staffed by talented practitioners.
Many quality treatment programs offer a tiered approach to therapy that enables the addict to progress from one step to another, achieving success at each step. These may include the following:
- Initial treatment. This phase is most often characterized by significant individual attention through screening, personal therapy, and exploring a program that best meets your needs. Daily attention is given to you through a variety of treatment options but the key at this phase is to maintain consistent support for the recovery addict. While this phase may include detox, it also introduces group counseling, and may include family counseling as well.
- Ongoing treatment. While this phase is less structured, it builds on the successes you achieved in the first phase. So if group counseling was an effective strategy for you in the first phase, this phase provides you with these opportunities, but allows you to be a bit more independent.
- Aftercare. Upon the successful completion of the previous phase, the aftercare treatment prepares you to return to the outside world. While you will maintain a relationship with the counselors from your previous phase, you are typically moved to a sober living environment in which you reside with others who are at the same point in their recovery. During this phase, the focus is on these goals:
- Relapse prevention
- Developing personal goals
- Maintaining your newly found sobriety
- Transitioning back to your life with family, school, and work
