Does drug rehab work?

Jan 9, 2012 By Paul Spanjar 0 comments

Scientific research since the mid 1970’s shows that absolutely, drug rehab works. Drug rehab treatment helps patients to stop taking drugs, avoid relapse and recover successfully through the use of both tried and tested formula as well as dynamic treatments, group sessions and one to one counseling discussions. From that research and other highly respected studies since then give key principle about what forms the basis of a good drug rehab.

  • - No single drug rehab / treatment approach is right for everyone
  • - Effective drug rehab attends to multiple needs of the patient
  • - Remaining in drug rehab for an adequate time period is essential
  • - Individual counselling and group therapies
  • - On-going monitoring during drug rehab to ensure that changing needs are met
  • - Detox is often essential but on it’s own is rarely successful

In the UK over the last 20 years there have been several big research projects looking into the outcomes of drug rehab. Although each research project has it’s own findings, there is a unanimous agreement that, pound for pound, residential treatment is the most effective over any alternative methods attempted. A recent study on The Providence Projects, demonstrated that 95% of people successfully complete detox and at a five year follow up, showed 80% of patients were still abstinent from drugs and alcohol.

"An unassuming house in the heart of Boscombe where miracles happen. From my initial talk with Paul, the admission process with Jon and my induction with Darryl, I was treated with compassion, empathy and understanding. All the staff had been in the same position as me!...If you are looking for a wealth of experience and knowledge around addiction, a safe environment to turn your life around and a solid foundation for your ongoing recovery you will not be disappointed.”
"Today my husband Paul is 1 year clean and sober thanks to The Providence Projects, he has found himself again and is living the life he deserves. " A life beyond his wildest dreams "… He initially signed up for 1 month but soon realised he needed a further 2 months. Paul has been dedicated and followed the advice given to him. He would not be here today if he hadn't been to The Providence Projects. I cannot thank or praise the program and staff enough…”
