Drug Rehabilitation

Jan 9, 2012 By Paul Spanjar 0 comments

Supportive drug rehabilitation is the most successful form of addiction treatment for a positive long-term effect. People suffering from a drug addiction will often experience uncontrollable cravings and will continue to use despite awful consequences. While onlookers look in and just say, “stop!”, the drug addict is unable to do so. This is not as a result of a lack of intelligence but simply a symptom of the illness which is drug addiction.

Prolonged drug use and drug addiction affects people in very different ways, people will experience different consequences over different periods of time, patterns of the drug use can look different. Over time, through continued exposure the persons brain function will be affected as their drug use changes from recreational to problematic.

Due to the complexity of these issues drug rehabilitation is not simple. A good drug rehab programme will compile of several aspects, each aimed to treat a particular problem. At the Providence Projects our drug rehab programme aims to help the person stop using drugs and then maintain a healthy drug free lifestyle. There are countless benefits which come of this, with the successful patient regaining control of their life, to potentially becoming a better husband or wife, son or daughter, employer or employee.

Drug addiction is typically a chronic and long lasting illness although this is not always the case. However it is well documented that a person with a drug addiction cannot stop taking drugs for a few days and be cured. If they were able to do this, they would. Our drug rehab programme generally lasts anything from 4 weeks up to 6 months although most research suggests that the longer the treatment, the better the outcome.

Unfortunately, those who typically need drug rehab often don’t access drug treatment. This can be for a multitude of reasons but very often because they are unable to afford help, too frightened to go into a supportive drug rehab programme or simply do not want to admit that they have a problem.

"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…”
