Men's drug rehab center

You know you are being drawn into a bottomless pit. You know your life is going downhill. You know your social and personal life is on the verge of utter ruin. Then why not take action?


Drug Rehab/Rehab/Drug Rehabilitation is a form of psychotherapeutic procedure/process in which your dependency on alcohol and drugs like heroin and cocaine. The sole purpose of this treatment is to enable you to stop psychoactive substance abuse so as to avoid the physical, psychological, social, and financial consequences that follow.


 


A reputed men's rehab centerhas various rehabilitation procedures which attempt to educate the patient on how to interact in a drug-free surrounding with the help of new methods.

Particularly, patients are requested to abstain from acquaintances that still use drugs or consume alcohol. There are programs called the 12-step program which enables patients not only to stop drug and alcohol abuse but also the change the habits which had arisen from these addictions. Moderation is never an option with legal drugs and alcohol as it mostly leads to relapse. So patients are emphasized with the fact that the recovery is a permanent process and complete abstention is necessary. Moderation is unsustainable for addicts with a long history of substance abuse.

 


Men's drug rehab programs include treatments which are in-patient (residential), out-patient, extended care centers, local support groups and recovery houses. Gender and age specific programs are available too.Since the 70s, scientific research has proven that an effective treatment program should aim at addressing not only the drug abuse issue of the patient but also the other complications which have arisen from its abuse—like personal, psychological or social issues. The initial detoxification process which helps relieve the bodily systems relieve themselves off the toxicity does not do much to stop any future drug abuse that may follow. A classic example would be of celebrities who go in and out of rehab umpteen times with no change in addiction behavior. To maintain the positive effects of the therapy, professionals advise the use of behavioral therapy coupled with medication to assist the detoxification and prevent relapse, thereby assisting complete recovery.


 


Therefore, the programs are designed in a way so as to meet with all the needs of the addict, the immediate and the follow-up. Drug and alcohol rehab centers provide medical and psychological guidance and also the right surrounding for the complete mental and physical recovery of a patient, the time taken depending on the intensity and level the addiction possessed.

The Facts About Drug Abuse Intervention

Drug Abuse Intervention Objective


 


The main objective of an intervention is to get the abuser to face the bare facts but in a non-confronting manner. The abuser needs to feel the seriousness of his choices but he also needs to see things in a clear and concise forum. The interventions are usually headed by a specialist who guides the conversation where it needs to go.


 


The fact is that a drug abuser is usually blind to the effects that he has on other people. He may use friends as a point of comparison and feel that his problems are much less than that of his fellow abusers. Drug abusers begin to make the wrong choices and their relationships with family and friends begin to fall apart. They start making choices that affect them financially and can even land them in a lot of trouble.


 


With the assistance of a well put together drug abuse intervention, the drug abuser is able to sit back and take a look at his addiction though his family and friends' eyes.

The decision to hold a drug abuse intervention can be a painful one but it is less painful than watching a loved one being controlled by a substance without facing his own life reality. Many loved ones do not want to force their addicted member to lose control or feel as if they are being attacked but it is very important for the addict to see what he is doing to those close to him.

 


The intervention, if planned properly, will lead the addict out of the despair and onto the road of recovery. The intervention may feel like a failure in the beginning if the addict decides to refuse treatment but there is a light at the end of the tunnel and the drug abuser may decide to take the treatment later after the initial pain has worn off.


 


Intervention does break though; it just takes a little time for the drug addict to respond. Drug abusers are not always thinking properly and when they have time to digest what has just happened to them, they usually come around and seek out the care they need to quit and start on the road to recovery.


 


By performing a drug abuse intervention, the addict gets the assistance of an abuse counselor who is trained in this form of confrontation. Each individual requires a different approach and with the right help, the addict is well on his way to recovery.


 


Once the intervention is planned, the interventionist makes sure that complete treatment for the addict is all set up and ready to begin. An intervention is sometimes a way to get the drug abusers or alcoholics to open their eyes before they actually hit the bottom and destroy their lives completely. Drug abuse interventions are a real motivational tool to get drug addicts the help they need.

Drug abuse resistance education

Abstract


Drug Abuse Resistance Education or acronym as D.A.R.E is a well known name in America especially in children of America as it is an attempt carried out by Police force of America to educate and inform school children about drug abuse. As drug abuse is an evil spreading at an increasing rate all over the world and is commonly found in children especially. All questions regarding D.A.R.E are addressed in the following essay.


Every year millions of school children around the world benefit from Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.), the highly-praised program aimed to give kids the skills they need to avoid involvement in drugs, gangs, and violence.


D.A.R.E. was founded in 1983 in Los Angeles and has proven so successful that it is now being implemented in 75 percent of the nation's school districts and in more than 43 countries around the world.

According to an estimate over the course of the past three years, well over 220 communities have started new D.A.R.E. programs to evoke knowledge about drug abuse in children of all ages. (Edward T.)

D.A.R.E. is a police officer-led series of classroom lessons that teaches children from kindergarten through 12th grade how to resist peers, colleagues or friends' pressure to use drugs and to live productive drug and violence-free lives. The basic purpose of this program is to encourage children to resist influence of friends to use drugs and raise their voices in negative to indulge in this evil for the sake of fashion.


Existence of D.A.R.E America


D.A.R.E America is a non profit organization that was created to serve as a resource to communities, helping to establish and improve their local D.A.R.E. programs. It provides officer training, supports the development and evaluation of the D.A.R.E. curriculum, provides student educational materials, monitors instruction standards and program results, and creates national awareness for D.A.R.E. Thus it is in their hands to design each and every step that is necessary for the elevation of the program. (Ross M.)


D.A.R.E. a "Cops Oriented" Program


The D.A.R.E. curriculum is designed to be taught by police officers. These police officers are trained before they could lead the program. Prior to entering the D.A.R.E. program, officers undergo 80 hours of special training in areas such as child development, classroom management, teaching techniques, and communication skills. 40 hours of additional training are provided to D.A.R.E. instructors to prepare them to teach the high school curriculum. Thus they are trained and experienced to answer the sophisticated questions often posed by young students about drugs and crime.


D.A.R.E. is universally viewed as an internationally recognized model for prevention of drug abuse in children. The United States Department of Justice identifies D.A.R.E. benefits as:


D.A.R.E. "humanizes" the police: that is, young people can begin to relate to officers as people not as cops only. They perceive them as human beings not models of rules and regulations.
D.A.R.E. permits students to see officers in a helping role, not just an enforcement role. They develop to trust officers and develop the ability to communicate to them in hour of need.
D.A.R.E. opens lines of communication between law enforcement and youth. The youth understands that the enforcement of law through police officers is actually for their benefit.
D.A.R.E. Officers can serve as channel or medium to provide information beyond drug-related topics. Thus increasing knowledge of children about drugs and crimes due to them.
D.A.R.E. opens dialogue between the school, police, and parents to deal with other issues not only on crimes or drugs abuse but also to which they would encounter in their later years.

National D.A.R.E. Day


Since 1988, Presidential Proclamation declares one day each year National D.A.R.E. Day which is celebrated to mark its high achievement and to acknowledge the efforts of the police officers who are involved in its creation, development and success.
