Asked: 2018-01-09 03:36:47
My boyfriend is going to rehab for drug addiction. He and I are both curious as to what his treatment plan will be like, and how they will make him feel better. Has anyone been through this before and has any advice?

Your boyfriend should be prepared for detox, if he hasn’t gone through that already, as well as intensive therapy and counseling. Professionals will help him learn the tools he needs to say no to his drug temptations in the future.

I’m glad to hear your boyfriend is getting help- that is so important and a big step in the recovery process! He should know that rehab will be a comprehensive experience with lots of support and guidance. He will go through detox if need be, before being set up with a daily routine that includes counseling, therapy and life skills training. The goal is to prepare him for life without drugs, and how to make better choices overall.

It's different for everyone but it roughly goes like this: he'll go to detox where a medical staff supervises his mental and physical responses to the detox and can use medicines to make the process easier. An addiction therapist will do a full evaluation to determine what he needs to overcome the addiction long-term and put together a program that includes individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, life skills, communication skills, an aftercare plan and other services that his recovery calls for. It's an involved process but encourage him to stick with it for at least 90 days. That's what you need for it to be effective. Anything less will only be effective if he has a mild or moderate addiction. Hope that helps.
