Watching your loved one struggle with their addiction is an emotional rollercoaster. Torn between the love for your recovering addict and sticking by your boundaries can cause stress and anxiety. There are plenty of reasons why your loved one should remain in treatment. The most important reason is the medical supervision of their withdrawal process.
Access to medication that could improve abstinence and sobriety, infection, pain, blood pressure, etc. as indicated for treatment of depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, or bipolar disorder.
Behavioral therapies can help people improve communication skills, relationship skills, parenting skills, and vocational skills, as well as family dynamics, thereby helping to restore the addicted individual to productive membership in the family and society.
During active addiction, a concern for one’s health and safety can be replaced with drug seeking behaviors. These behaviors can jeopardize and endanger their life or well-being. In treatment, your loved one has access to medical testing equipment.
Radiological Imaging : Such as: CAT scan, X-rays, Ultrasound (sonogram), SPECT Scan, Fibroscan.
Laboratory Testing: for monitoring of health, wellness, and sober-living progress.
Safety: Separation from active intoxicant users, abusers, and dealers.
Stabilization: Bio-chemical rebalancing enabling sane and sober decision-making requires months to obtain.
