There are many addiction treatment plans to help people kick there drug and or alcohol habit. There really should be. Everyone has these addiction problems for different reasons and everyone has their own personality. Each individual responds to treatment differently. Most treatment plans include many different types of programs. There are many one on one conversations with experienced staff and doctors. There is also staff lead group meetings that take place which encourages people to talk about their own lives as well as listen to the story of others. This helps addicts to realize that they are not alone. There are others out there sharing the same problems.
Learning to understand addiction is an important ingredient to any addiction treatment plan. So much of the problem lies in the DNA of families. There really is often a chemical reaction in the brain that leads to crazy impulses. Drugs and alcohol often starts as an impulse that leads to a lifestyle. Some people learn the impulses in their upbringing some how. No matter how one gets started on drugs and alcohol those chemicals really affect the brains neurotransmitter, Dopamine. It makes people feel relaxed and sometimes even euphoric for a while and the longer it is used and the more amounts used the more the brain gets damaged from its effects. Then it take more drugs to feel good again which damages it more and the cycle goes on and on. Suddenly, ones life is falling apart.
The addiction treatment plan should help people to learn why it happens for physical reasons and then move into the personal feelings. What may have brought someone to that point. What events took place to send someone off into the escape world. That is were so much healing is done because people in rehab have a chance to face the pain inside themselves and come to terms with it. Hopefully, learn to move past it and into a healthy frame of mind and life.
