Dayton Addiction Treatment

Dayton Addiction TreatmentIt is often difficult for addicts to come to terms with their addictions. They may require the help of family or friends to realize their lifestyles are not healthy. Holding an intervention can help you confront your Dayton loved one about your concerns about the damage they are causing to their health and well-being. The ultimate goal of an intervention is to get a loved one into treatment immediately following the discussion.

Why Treatment Centers for Dayton Addicts?

Rehab centers are designed to meet the individual needs of the addict. Choosing the right treatment center can improve the addict’s chance of a full recovery. Relapse rates are very high when addicts try to quit on their own, and a failed attempt at recovery can leave them feeling discouraged about the process.

Different Types of Rehab Centers for Dayton Addicts

The two main categories of treatment options are inpatient and outpatient rehab. Residential rehab requires you to put your life on hold and check into a facility to remove yourself from the drug and any distractions that may slow down your recovery. Outpatient rehab is ideal for those who cannot give up their responsibilities at home or work, and have less serious addictions.

  • Depression and other mental illness, such as anxiety or sleep disturbances, are common in drug addicts.
  • Liver failure, tremors, seizures and heart enlargements are common in long-term alcoholics.
