Klonopin Addiction Treatment and Rehabilitation

Klonopin Addiction Treatment and Rehabilitation

Just like any other drug addiction, Klonopin addiction also needs proper treatment and therapy for recovery. Because Klonopin is a prescription medication, people usually do not take its addiction seriously. The fact is, it is just as harmful as any other drug. The longer the time drug is abused for, the greater the damage. Most of the Klonopin addicts start taking it for therapeutic purposes and end up becoming addicted to it without even realizing it. Increasing the dosage amount of the drug without consulting the doctor or taking it more frequently than prescribed can result into physical and psychological dependence. However, recovery is possible and there are specially designed facilities that help addicts recover and go back to a normal life. At Addiction Rehab Centers, each patient is assessed for his condition and a treatment plan is devised accordingly.

Inpatient treatment programs:

During inpatient treatment approach, the patients are made to live in a specially designed treatment facility. The duration for which the patient has to stay in depends upon a number of factors such as his physical and psychological condition and the progress made by him. Inpatient treatment program is mandatory for the patients with poor physical and mental health. At Addiction Rehab Centers, the patients are provided continuous expert supervision throughout. The success rate is very high for the patients who avail inpatient treatment program. It is particularly recommended for the patients with long term Klonopin abuse history. The patients who attend an inpatient treatment program are more likely to recover and less likely to relapse.

Outpatient treatment programs:

In outpatient treatment program similar services are provided as in inpatient treatment programs excluding the living in part. During the treatment, the patients are allowed to live at their home with their family and perform their everyday duties. Outpatient programs tend to be cheaper than inpatient ones. But outpatient treatment is only an option for those patients who did not abuse Klonopin for long periods of time. It is not recommended for the patients for patients with poor physical and mental health. The patients are more likely to relapse if they only attend an outpatient treatment program since no constant medical supervision is provided. It is better to opt for outpatient ongoing treatment after completing inpatient treatment.

Use of Therapies and counseling:

Therapies are an important part of both inpatient and outpatient treatment programs. From the start to end, therapies hold utmost importance. From convincing the patient to seek treatment for addiction to helping the patient maintain a life of sobriety, therapies play a major role in recovery. The therapies most commonly offered at Addiction Rehab Centers during rehab include individual, group and couple/family therapies.

  • Individual therapy:Individual therapy only includes the patient and his therapist. It provides the patient privacy and a confidence to talk to his therapist about anything. The therapist helps the patient with every aspect of recovery. A number of techniques are taught to the patient to cope with negative thoughts and emotions.
  • Group therapy:Group therapy involves a number of patients. The patients can talk to each other or their therapist about their progress, struggles or any other aspect of recovery. The patients may learn a lot from each other. It may also help them to stay positive.
  • Couples therapy/Family therapy:In this type of therapy, the family or spouse of the patient are also involved. Couples/family therapy can be greatly helpful to improve communication between the patient and his family and help the family understand the condition of the patient in a better way

Aftercare programs:

Aftercare programs can help the patient a great deal to successfully live a life of sobriety. A number of self help groups and treatment groups are available for the patient to join. In these groups, patients come together every once in a while and discuss their problems. Aftercare programs can be a great way to keep the patient motivated. The chances of relapse never truly go away. They can only be decreased by using such preventive measures. The patients who attend aftercare programs are more likely to successfully resist a relapse.

Treatment of Co-occurring Conditions:

The term co-occurring conditions is used to address psychological conditions that may simultaneously exist with drug addiction. Most of the addicts have a history. It is important to consider all these aspects and devise a treatment plan accordingly. Not all but most of the drug addicts have an underlying undiagnosed psychological issue such as depression, anxiety etc. Detecting such conditions and treating them is an important part of any good rehabilitation program. The recovery is not possible unless the root cause of addiction is eliminated. The patient will keep going back to the drug no matter how many times he has been admitted to a rehab center. At Addiction Rehab Centers, the condition of a patient is assessed and all these aspects are evaluated throughout the recovery process to ensure the provision of best possible treatment.
