The television industry took time to remember the late Cory Monteith at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards. Glee costar Jane Lynch described the late actor, who died in July at age 31 from a drug overdose, as a “beautiful soul.” She commented that his death was “tragic reminder of the rapacious, senseless destruction that is brought on by addiction.”
Despite his obvious talent and the warmth and wonderful sense of humor that friends and family will always remember about him, Monteith also struggled with a disease that took his life. He had sought addiction treatment more than once during his life. As a chronic illness, it needs to be constantly monitored for signs of relapse. Monteith’s tragic death shines a light on the issue of addiction and underlines the need to seek help immediately.
Effective Inpatient Addiction Treatment
Are you looking at long term vs. short term rehab for yourself or a loved one? Long term rehabilitation treatment involves a 90-day stay at an inpatient facility. During this time, you can focus your attention on getting well.
No two people seeking help for addiction are exactly the same. Each person’s treatment needs are evaluated, and in some instances, a short-term 14-28 day treatment program may be recommended. There is no quick-fix to deal with the issues around addiction, but some clients can benefit from this type of program.
Short term drug rehab treatment may be recommended when a client cannot be admitted into a program for 90 days due to work or family obligations. It may also be appropriate for a client who has been treated at an inpatient facility previously.
Customized Approach To Treatment
Each client entering a drug and alcohol treatment program for a short-term program will be given an individualized course of treatment. It will include attending 12-step program meetings, as well as:
- Individual therapy sessions
- Group therapy
- One-on-one counseling
- Life skills instruction
- Education about addiction
The program also includes physical exercise, including hiking, nature walks, and yoga. Proper nutrition is important for clients in recovery, and they receive instruction on how to eat well.
Family Support During Addiction Treatment
Family support is important to help clients achieve long-term sobriety, and the Above It All Treatment Center includes them in this process. Through family sessions, they can share their feelings about addiction and understand the disease known as addiction. Everyone can help to move forward together to present a united front to help provide support once you or your loved one leaves the treatment program.
