There are very few things more devastating to one's life or a family's well-being than drug addiction and/or alcoholism. These illnesses can cause severe mental and physical anguish for both the sufferer and everyone around them, especially when the illnesses are left untreated. Only by entering a drug rehab or alcohol rehab center can someone suffering from one or both of these illnesses hope to regain control over his or her life.
The Difference Between a Drug Rehab and an Alcohol Rehab Center
Drug rehabs and alcohol rehab centers share the same goals – to help the client overcome their addictions so they can live a life free from the oppression of drugs or alcohol. But while drug addiction and alcoholism are two different illnesses, it is not uncommon for many rehab centers to offer treatment plans for each of them.
Both alcoholism and drug addiction are very complex illnesses and because of this treatment needs to be carefully managed by experienced clinicians and other addiction professionals. Because every individual who is suffering from one or both of these illnesses has a unique set of needs, an individualized curriculum of care is the only way to successfully administer treatment.
But as similar as these two illnesses are, there are certain challenges with drug addiction that are not evident in cases of alcoholism. Likewise, there are treatment concerns with alcoholism that don't apply to drug addiction. Simply put, a drug rehab center should never use a rehabilitation plan designed for alcoholism to treat someone suffering from drug addiction and vice-versa. In the event that the client is suffering from both drug addiction and alcoholism, then a highly specialized program that targets the two conditions, independently and concurrently, should be created expressly for that client.
