Drug and Alcohol Rehab: What Happens During Rehab?

Drugs and alcohol affect the whole body. Physically, they can put stress on every system in the body. Mentally, they interfere with the way the brain sends and receives signals. Rehab helps by reviving these two parts of the body. It helps the person learn the tools of living life without the substance against.  This can be accomplished through detox and therapy.


To help the physical side of the addiction, the toxins that the substance brings into the body need to be cleared out. This process of cleansing the body of the harmful toxins is called detoxification. They get built up over time and are harmful for the body. Detox can last for 5-12 day and can help reduce the symptoms of withdrawal. This also prepares the individual for the next step, which is rehab therapy.

People with a more severe addiction may need more than a normal detox. For these people, a medically supervised detox may be advised. This is the careful use of medicine by a medical professional to guide the person through detox. This is more comfortable for the person going through it. It is also safer and can seriously decrease the chance of relapse. There are three stages of this detox. They are: evaluation, stabilization and transition to active treatment.

Rehab and Therapy

To help the psychological part of the addiction, the person will begin rehab. This is done through different kinds of therapy sessions, including individual, group and family therapy. Sometimes, this is the hardest and longest because it can uncover some deep-seated issues that need to be changed.

A link that has been found is between mental health disorders and addiction. Many people have undiagnosed mental health problems and want to feel better, so they turn to drugs or alcohol, which only offers temporary relief. And then they go back for more, causing a vicious cycle. They will be diagnosed and treated for a co-occurring disorder.

Types of Alcohol and Drug Treatment Facilities in Bellefontaine, OH

There are different kinds of drug and alcohol treatment facilities in the Bellefontaine, Ohio area. A person should know about the type of rehab before they choose what facility to go to.

Outpatient Treatment Options

When a person wants to go to rehab but would rather live at home, they can do outpatient rehab. They are not required to check into an inpatient facility. They get the same accountability and support as an inpatient rehab. Being less expensive than inpatient rehab, their insurance likely will cover more. They can apply the things they are learning practically in everyday life. They should have a flexible schedule and a good support system at home.

Outpatient Rehab is not recommended for people who come from abusive homes, who may not have a strong support system at home, have a history of relapse or who cannot stay sober at home.

Inpatient Treatment Options

For some, more intensive rehab is needed. This is what inpatient rehab is for. This is a facility that is staffed professionally 24 hours a day. This rehab usually can last 28 days and the person will experience detox and begin therapy while they are there.

Inpatient rehab can provide people with a lot of support; especially during the earliest days of recovery.

Sober Living Homes

People can have a difficult time going back home after they finish rehab. They may choose to live in a sober living home. This is a house where a person can live with peers while they practice the things they learned in rehab. They are expected to work, pay bills, stay clean from drugs and alcohol, and follow the rules of the house.

12-Step Programs

Two 12-step programs that many are familiar with are Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. They help millions of people every day. The peer led meetings give each other accountability and support. There are meetings for both in the Bellefontaine area through the week.

Traveling to Arizona for Drug and Alcohol Rehab

Many people decide they do not want to stay near home for rehab. They can have a lot of reasons for wanting to leave their state, some of them being:

  • To break old habits: many addicts have triggers. These are people, places or things that cause them to go back to their substance. They can be very damaging to an addict’s recovery efforts. If they choose an out of state rehab, their triggers can be left at home.
  • To commit to the program: to be able to fully commit to their program, some people need to be further away from home. They need to be away from their safety net. This is a great reason to go to Arizona for rehab, states away from Ohio.
  • To limit distractions: distractions make it difficult to focus on the things that need a person’s full attention. These can be very stressful on the person who is going through rehab. If they get away from the distractions by going out of state for rehab, they can reduce their stress and focus better on their program.
  • To protect privacy: sometimes it can be hard for a person to maintain a low profile in rehab in their hometown because they may know a lot of people in the town. Because of this, people may talk about it. If they go to rehab out of state, their privacy can be ensured.
  • To experience different facilities: every rehab has different things to offer, whether it is a different program or a beautiful view. The Arizona rehab facility has something for everyone.
  • To start a new life: addicts want to have the opportunity to turn their life around. This takes a lot of work and a lot of healing. The best place for this could be out of state. .


Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are just two of the organizations that offer support group meetings. SMART Recovery is another option people have available to them. They are not 12-Step-oriented at all; theirs is more of a scientific approach to recovery.

Families can also get the help and support they need from attending Al-Anon and Alateen meetings. Many of them are also 12-Step based.
