The third stage of recovery is rehab. Rehabilitation is the process of retraining the mind and body to function without a toxic substance. Rehab allows the individual to get to the heart of their addiction and understand it in the hopes that he or she can then leave the addiction behind and move forward with their life. My Recovery Helper works with rehab centers that offer the highest level of care during rehab, and whose programs have proven to be successful in helping clients overcome an addiction.
Individualized Rehab and Recovery
Rehab and recovery can take on many different forms, depending on the individual and their addiction history. Our treatment facilities offer options when it comes to treatment and rehabilitation, because we know that no two clients are alike. The treatment centers My Recovery Helper partners with customize each client’s rehab and therapy in order to provide the very best recovery experience possible. We conduct an assessment on each client before referring them to a facility, in order to ensure the best possible match.
Types of Therapies

Therapy is designed to help clients work through their addiction and the reasons behind it. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps individuals identify and modify negative thought patters and the actions they influence. Meditation and yoga help clients strengthen the mind and establish a balance between mind and body. Equine therapy allows the person in recovery to show responsibility as they bond with and care for other living beings. Psychodrama therapy uses role playing and interactions with peers to understand one’s perception of experiences. Art and music therapy are used to help clients express themselves when they are uncomfortable talking about their past. Family therapy helps repair relationships that were damaged by addiction.

Therapy sessions can be tailored to provide effectiveness for each client. There are many different types of therapies, and many more new kinds are emerging. My Recovery Helper works with facilities and therapists that use methods that are clinically proven to work, as well as staying up to date on the newest research and practices.
In addition to therapy, counseling sessions are used during rehab. Counseling can either take place as one-on-one sessions, family sessions, or peer group sessions. Individual counseling, along with therapy sessions, help the client understand how they got caught up with addiction and how they can modify their thoughts, attitudes, and surroundings to help them stay sober. Group sessions are a good way to help clients improve their interpersonal communication skills, develop compassion for others, and develop lasting relationships. Group sessions can focus on issues such as anger management, communication, and perception. Call us to learn more about the therapies our programs use 1.844.867.6835
Selecting the Level of Care
During inpatient treatment, the individual will live at the treatment facility where they are supervised 24 hours a day. Meals are provided, and outings to activities in the community are available. Inpatient treatment is the most structured form of rehab, and it is a good starting point because it provides the client with the opportunity to focus on nothing but their recovery. Inpatient treatment is ideal for those just starting recovery, for those that are not able to remain sober on their own, or for those that are in need of a break from everyday life and want to focus solely on recovery.
Outpatient treatment is a rehab program that allows the individual to live at home or another facility while returning for rehab sessions during the day. Outpatient rehab is generally a stepping stone back to real life, as the person still attends regular sessions but also is responsible for their life outside of rehab.
Rehab can also take place in different settings, such as aftercare or extended care. This phase of treatment helps individuals avoid relapse, by providing them with additional treatment.
Achieving Recovery Goals
Rehab is the phase of recovery in which much work is accomplished. During this time, the individual goes from being an out of control addict to someone actively and willingly working on their sobriety. As clients move through this step of recovery, they generally experience huge changes in attitude, their thought processes, and their outlook on the future. Individuals should leave rehab having real goals in mind for their life, and the motivation and desire to carry out those goals. The work that goes on at rehab allows for the transformation clients experience, and many individuals and their families are eternally grateful for their rehab experience.
Part of what makes a rehab program successful is the staff that operates it. Therapists and counselors should be caring, experienced, and dedicated to their work. The facilities My Recovery Helper works with have treatment professionals that are able to motivate and encourage their clients, and are devoted to helping individuals achieve complete sobriety.
