What parents don't understand - and, really, this is the first thing that has to change if we want to see a change in the drug scene - is that it's not difficult to reach a point where it's pretty much out of their control. So many lives are ruined by drugs not because the people taking them chose to do so, but because they just couldn't stop. That's drug addiction, and that's why you need a drug treatment center.
Parents think they can't control their kids - if the kids say no, the parents feel they can't do anything about it. In fact, they probably can. However, if you've really tried and just can't do it, an interventionist can help get your kids into a drug addiction treatment center. Interventionists have often been addicted to drugs themselves in the past and they know how to deal with the situation.
Outpatient services for alcohol rehabilitation are designed to treat people who do not have a severe addiction to alcohol. They are also encouraged for alcoholics who have gone through an initial stage of inpatient treatment. Although this treatment is quite popular and there are many outpatient facilities throughout the country, there is little research on its effectiveness.
Outpatient treatments do not require overnight stays and usually include alcohol education, individual and group counselling, support for family members of the alcoholic and case management. The outpatient treatments programs can be intense, requiring an alcoholic to attend four to five hours a day - every day of the week. They can also be held in the evening to allow a person to continue working. In some cases, outpatient treatment consists of weekly therapy sessions.
