Fear and apprehension are often the greatest challenges to rehabilitation, which can be a long and difficult task that will almost always require professional help along the way. Combining the proper support and guidance, you can overcome your substance abuse problem.
At Drug Rehab Albany we provide a wide range of addiction treatment services to participants that come to our rehab center suffering with addiction.

We have provided help to countless struggling addicts to conquer their addiction with our extensive rehabilitation methods.
The initial step of our treatment program is our detoxification regimen. After an individual has consumed drugs over an extended period of time a dependence occurs and takes over. Once dependence or addiction has developed it may be unsafe to abruptly quit without professional assistance from a medical detox process. Habit-forming drugs such as alcohol, valium, cocaine, heroin, meth, xanax, vicodin and many others produce a wide range of withdrawal effects such as agitation, anxiety, insomnia, muscle aches, vomiting, sweating, abdominal cramping, diarrhea, nausea, lethargy and other symptoms.
At Drug Rehab Albany we offer the needed medical services and support to help out clients be as safe and comfortable as possible through the withdrawal process. We provide 24 hour services and supervision during this critical first step in the rehabilitation process. Program participants typically say that they feel a great sense of accomplishment after they have completed our detoxification program.
An important aspect of beating addiction is to recognize that you have a problem. A person who is in denial about their addiction cannot move forward to solving a problem they deny they have. For many people, when it comes down to taking a honest look into their addiction situation, also requires the individual to look at how and why they got addicted to start with. Addiction commonly occurs when a person starts taking the drug or alcohol to self-medicate in order to minimize negative feelings and emotions. If a person doesn't recognize the source issues connected to their addiction and does not receive help, it will be harder for them to overcome their addiction.
Recognizing that you have a problem is a very critical step in dealing with drug addiction or alcoholism. In addition you must also have the desire to do what is needed to change it. Taking inventory of the reasons for making a change keep you focused and motivated on recovery. Many find it helpful to make a list why they want to change. Reasons could be, for example, wanting to be a better mother/father, experience more joy in life, to be the person you really want to be, repair relationships with family and friends, to be healthy again, or to reverse other negative situations caused by your addiction.
Do not just concentrate and be absorbed on the circumstances and problems caused by your addiction, as focusing in on the negative consequences of the past usually makes one feel depressed and hopeless. Instead, focus on your new addiction-free life and the recovery process. Think about the positive things that are sure to materialize when you have recovered from addiction. At Drug Treatment Facility Albany we will help you to embrace your new opportunities for a new, brighter future. A future accomplishing past forgotten dreams and goals in your newly created addiction-free lifestyle. You will feel better physically, have more energy, be more secure financially, have lasting relationships, be more productive overall, and have time to enjoy and explore new hobbies. Setting aside time to write down these goals can keep you motivated throughout the rehab process.
Long Term Rehabilitation goals
