We are back with a few final reasons why alumni programs are great for those recovering from drug abuse. If you missed our previous blog post, you’ll find links to each installment of this series at the end of this article.
Alumni programs are great for people who are getting back to work, school, or other obligations that might keep them from being flexible with attendance in support groups. Alumni programs are able to tailor meetings, events, and group support to fit the needs of the person in recovery. Because of their flexibility, alumni programs are great for working adults or those who are going back to school to start a new career.
As we previously mentioned, people who choose to enter into alumni therapy have an advantage in recovery over those who do not. Chances of relapse are greater for those who try to handle life in recovery alone. Relearning how to live without drugs can be stressful. It can be difficult for individuals to cope with triggers and other issues along the way without help and support from aftercare and support groups to fully understand what they’re dealing with. There’s no reason to struggle day to day when you can get help from an organization that can work with you to continue your therapy and recovery.
Our center for detox in Gastonia, NC offers everything you need to successfully and safely detox from substances without worrying about health concerns. At Freedom Detox, you'll find that we offer the following North Carolina detox programs to everyone:
- Medically monitored detoxification
- Medication consultations
- In-house support
- Continuity of care referrals
You'll be safe with us in a controlled environment that is comfortable and relaxing. There's no need to worry about whether or not you'll be able to handle this fight alone.
Without detoxing from drugs or alcohol, your body won’t be able to function normally. You’ll have continued issues with sleep deprivation, high blood pressure, an inability to focus clearly, and you may have erratic mood swings. Detoxification will help your body return to normal without any of these issues. You’ll then be free to join rehab.
