Alcohol Rehab



1. Alcohol rehab programs are necessary for those struggling with alcohol abuse.

True
Alcohol can lead to life threatening illnesses such as cancer of the liver, esophagus, throat and larynx. Programs offer detoxification processes and addiction treatments to stop these problems before they lead to serious, fatal diseases. The medical professionals can assess the needs of the patient's psychological health and design a specialized program to meet the individual's needs.


2. In drug rehab centers, patients have restricted recreational activities.

False
Drug rehab centers usually want the patients to have fun in a stress and anxiety free environment. Many programs offer recreational activities such as going to the beach, karate, yoga, baseball and other physical activities. Some centers are located on beautiful beaches or golf resorts and patients are encouraged to engage in recreational activities.


3. An alcohol rehab center will typically allow patients to maintain current living conditions.

True
An alcohol rehab center will usually allow patients to bring their cell phones, books, music and other items normally used at home so that they can feel at home. Most drug and alcohol rehab centers understand that family is an important part of the rehabilitation process and allow family members to attend group therapy sessions and lectures. In most alcohol treatment programs, an individual can expect to stay one to three months and maintain his or her current employment.


4. It is a difficult step to accept that drug rehab is needed.

True
It is very difficult for a person who is suffering from substance abuse to accept that a drug rehab program is needed in order for them to overcome their addictions. Family practitioners may be a good place to start because they can determine if a program is needed. The sooner a person gets into a treatment program or center, the better chance they have of recovery. The substance abuse needs to be treated quickly before it causes long-term health effects.


5. Scripture does not address substance abuse and treatment issues.

False
Proverbs 23:31-32 - Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.
