Alabama is known for having a wide variety of different types of inpatient rehabilitation centers for drug and alcohol addiction. These treatment facilities require that recovering addicts spend between a few weeks and a few months in a residential setting dedicated to recovery. These residential treatment programs are specifically designed to offer both medical detoxification assistance, and counseling support. They are specifically designed to focus on equipping recovering drug addicts with the tools and resources that they need to be accountable for their selves and their actions.
The process to achieve a successful recovery can take as long as twelve months or more, but it depends on the recovering addict and how dedicated he or she is to change his or her life and habits. Recovering addicts are instructed in a variety of ways to examine all of the damaging behaviors that in the past have led to the addiction that brought them here. It allows them to create new habits and improved healthy routines which will enable them to avoid reoccurrence or relapse through healthier living and avoiding vices from the past.
Studies and statistics have shown that a combination of detoxification and rehabilitation is a much better system in the long run than medical detox or outpatient therapy on their own. Sometimes detox all on its own is not enough to remove the recovering addict from their old habits, so it should be seen as a first step in the process of recovery, and a precursor to the counseling that will show a recovering addict how to truly deal with their alcoholism or drug abuse habits.
