Drug Treatment Facility Ames
Fear and uncertainty are oftentimes the greatest challenges to recovery, which typically is a long and difficult task that will most often require supervised professional assistance. Obtaining the proper support and guidance, you can conquer your substance abuse problem.
At Drug Treatment Facility Ames we provide a full spectrum of substance abuse treatment programs for participants that come to our rehab center suffering with addiction problems. Clients that become addicted to substances like vicodin, percocet, lortab, cocaine, meth and other drugs that cause abuse and addiction are typically at a loss of how to recover by themselves without help. We have helped countless individuals to overcome their addiction with our extensive treatment protocols.
The first step of our rehabilitation program is our detox process. After a person has taken an addictive drug for a regular period of time a physical dependence develops for the drug. When this happens it is often not medically safe to suddenly quit without supervision from a medically monitored detoxification process. Habit-forming substances such as alcohol, valium, cocaine, heroin, meth, crack, xanax, fentanyl and many others produce a wide range of withdrawal symptoms such as agitation, anxiety, insomnia, muscle aches, sweating, vomiting, abdominal cramping, diarrhea, nausea and more.
At Drug Treatment Center Ames we offer the needed medical supervision to help out clients be as comfortable as possible through the withdrawal period. We provide 24 hour care and support throughout this critical first phase in the rehabilitation process. Our clients often express that they feel a great sense of accomplishment after they have finished the detoxification process.
An important aspect of beating addiction is to recognize that you have a problem. An individual who refuses to accept they are addicted cannot take strides to fix the problem they deny they have. For many, when it comes down to confronting their addiction problem, also requires the individual to look at how and why it developed in the first place. Addiction often happens when someone starts taking the drug or alcohol to relieve physical and/or emotional pain in order to minimize negative thoughts, feelings, and emotions. If an individual doesn't recognize the source issues guiding their addiction and does not reach out for help, it will be harder for them to conquer their addiction.
Accepting that you have a problem is a very vital first step in dealing with drug addiction or alcoholism. However you also need to have the desire to do what is needed to change it. Taking inventory of the reasons for making a change will help you navigate the road to rehabilitation. Many say it helps to make a list the reasons why they want to change. Reasons could be, for example, wanting to be a better mother/father, be a happier person overall, to be the person you really want to be, repair damaged relationships, to be healthy again, or to reverse other negative situations that addiction causes.
Do not only concentrate and be absorbed on the circumstances and problems caused by your substance abuse, because focusing too much on the negative aspects of the past can make one feel hopeless. Rather, embrace your new addiction-free life and recovery. Think about the great things that will surely materialize when you have recovered from addiction. At Drug Rehabilitation Program Ames we will guide you to embrace your new opportunities for a new, brighter future. A new life accomplishing long lost dreams and goals in your newly created addiction-free lifestyle. You will be healthier, have more energy, have greater success financially, have lasting relationships, be more productive at work, and have time to enjoy and explore new hobbies. Taking the time to list out these goals can keep you excited and motivated throughout the rehabilitation process.
Long Term Treatment goals
At Drug Rehab Program Ames we believe that the most important factor in determining success is whether the individual has truly overcome their addiction to drugs and alcohol. Success can only be measured by the patient's belief in their ability to remain clean. Short term rehabilitation programs typically fall short of this goal.

The only person who can change you is you. At Drug Rehab Center Ames it is extremely helpful to be immersed in a strong support network to help you succeed.
