Drug Rehab Program Merrillville

Fear and uncertainty are often the biggest barriers to addiction recovery, which is usually a long and challenging process that will almost always require supervised professional assistance. Getting the proper support and guidance, you can conquer your substance abuse problem.

At Drug Rehabilitation Program Merrillville we provide a full spectrum of addiction recovery programs to people that come to our facility suffering with addiction problems. Most people that become dependent on drugs like vicodin, percocet, lortab, meth and other drugs that bring about addiction usually don't know how to recover on their own. We have helped countless individuals to conquer their addiction with our comprehensive addiction recovery protocols.


The initial step of our program is our detox regimen. After a person has consumed an addictive drug regularly for a period of time a physical dependence occurs and takes over. When this happens it is often unsafe to abruptly discontinue use without supervision from a medical detoxification process. Addictive substances such as alcohol, cocaine, heroin, meth, crack, xanax, vicodin and many others cause a wide range of withdrawal effects such as agitation, anxiety, insomnia, muscle aches, vomiting, sweating, diarrhea, cramping, nausea, lethargy and more.

At Drug Treatment Facility Merrillville we provide the often necessary medical supervision to help out clients be as comfortable as possible in the detoxification period. We offer 24 hour care during this critical first step in the rehabilitation process. Program participants often state that they feel a renewed sense of hope once they have finished the detox process.

A vital aspect of overcoming addiction is to acknowledge that you have a problem. An individual who is in denial about their addiction will not be able to move forward to solving a problem they deny they have. For many people, when it comes to confronting their addiction problem, also requires the individual to try to figure out how and why it developed in the first place. Addiction typically occurs when a person 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 figure out the source issues connected to their addiction and does not reach out for help, it will be extremely difficult for them to conquer their addiction.

Recognizing that you have a problem is a very vital step in dealing with alcohol addiction or drug abuse. However you also need to have the desire to put forth the effort to change it. Taking inventory of the reasons for making a change keep you focused and motivated on recovery. Many people find it helpful to make a list why they want to put an end to their addiction. Reasons might include 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 improve your health, or to reverse other negative situations caused by your addiction.

Do not just focus on the problems caused by your substance abuse, as focusing too much on the negative consequences of the past usually makes you feel depressed and hopeless. Rather, focus on your future and the recovery process. Focus on the positive things that are sure to happen when you have conquered your addiction. At Drug Rehabilitation Center Merrillville we will help you to embrace your new opportunities for a new, brighter future. A future fulfilling long lost goals and dreams in your newly created drug-free lifestyle. You will feel better physically, have more energy and enthusiasm, have greater success financially, have lasting relationships, be more productive at work, and have time to enjoy and explore new hobbies and recreation. Taking the time to list out these goals can keep you motivated throughout the rehab process.

Long Term Treatment goals

At Drug Rehabilitation Facility Merrillville we know that the number one factor in determining success is whether the individual has truly overcome their addiction to drugs and alcohol. Success can only be determined by the patient's belief in their ability to stay drug free. Short term rehab protocols generally fall short of this goal.

We feel that it is crucial not to be under time restraints when in treatment. The time that you spend in treatment can offer a lifetime of sobriety, it is well worth the investment of whatever time that it needs. We address the underlying reasons that may be at the root of the addiction. We will help you to repair the damages that you have created in your life so that you are not filled with disappointment. You will learn life skills, coping skills and relapse prevention techniques so that you are not only sober when when you complete treatment, but know how to stay clean and sober for the rest of your life. We know that you want your life back and we are here to help you find a way to achieve it.

Relapse Prevention

The only person who can change you is you. At Drug Treatment Facility Merrillville it helps to be immersed in a strong support network to ensure your success. That said, hold onto the people in your life that are positive and supportive. Conversely, be cautious about retaining the unsupported and negative relationships in your life, like past friends that still use drugs, or relationships that make you feel inadequate.

Detoxification is only the first phase in a long process of rehabilitation at Drug Treatment Program Merrillville; But will also help you to learn the the things that trigger your addiction. Anxiety, stress inhibitions, deficiencies in confidence etc. are all potential triggers for substance abuse. Learning healthy trigger management concepts and skills will help you to push away and disregard the urge to use drugs. Our facility activities include exercise, nutrition, cognitive education therapy, drug education, life skills, coping skills, craving and relapse prevention training.
