Drug Rehab Ames
Fear and uncertainty are commonly the greatest challenges to addiction recovery, which typically is a long and challenging task that will almost always require professional help along the way. Getting the appropriate support and professional help, you can overcome your substance abuse problem.
At Drug Rehabilitation Facility Ames we have a wide range of addiction treatment programs for people that arrive at our facility suffering with addiction. Most people that get addicted to drugs like vicodin, percocet, lortab, heroin, meth and other drugs that cause addiction are typically at a loss of how to stop on their own. We have provided help to countless individuals to beat their addiction with our extensive treatment protocols.
The first step of our rehabilitation program is our detox regimen. After a person has taken an addictive drug regularly for a period of time a dependence occurs and takes over. Once this happens it may be unsafe to suddenly stop using the drug without supervision from a medical detox procedure. Habit-forming substances such as alcohol, cocaine, heroin, meth, crack, demerol, fentanyl and many others produce a wide variety of withdrawal effects such as agitation, anxiety, insomnia, muscle aches, vomiting, sweating, diarrhea, cramping, nausea, lethargy and more.
At Drug Treatment Facility Ames we provide the needed medical supervision to make our clients as safe and comfortable as possible through the detoxification period. We offer 24 hour care during this crucial first phase in the recovery process. Our clients often state that they feel a great sense of accomplishment when they have finished the detox process.
An essential step in beating addiction is to acknowledge that you have a problem. An individual who is in denial about their addiction will not be able to take strides to fix the problem they deny they have. For many, when it comes down to taking a honest look into their addiction situation, also requires the individual to look at why and how it developed to start with. Addiction commonly occurs when someone uses a substance to relieve physical and/or emotional pain in order to minimize negative feelings and emotions. If an individual doesn't figure out the underlying issues connected to their addiction and does not receive help, it will be harder for them to fully recover from their addiction.
Acknowledging that you have a problem is an extremely critical part of recovery from 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 keep you focused and motivated on recovery. Many find it helpful to write down the reasons why they want to change. Reasons might 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 damaged relationships, to improve your health, or to reverse other negative situations that addiction causes.
Do not just concentrate and be absorbed on the circumstances and problems caused by your substance abuse, as focusing too much on the negative consequences of the past can make one feel hopeless. Rather, focus on your new addiction-free life and the recovery process. Think about the great things that will surely materialize when you have recovered from addiction. At Drug Rehabilitation Program Ames we will help you to embrace your prospects for a happy, productive, addiction-free life. A future accomplishing long lost dreams and goals in your newly created addiction-free lifestyle.

Setting aside time to write down these goals can keep you excited and motivated throughout the rehab process.
Long Term Rehabilitation goals
