Transcript of Keanna's Drug Rehabilitation Project

The Right Approach Depending on the person, drug and situation; different methods for rehabilitation exist. Remember, recovery is a process, not an event. A three step approach to regaining control When a person becomes addicted to drugs or alcohol realizing they need help can be hard. A friend or family member can reach out to them, they can make the decision on their own, or even, when someone has a mental health issue, they can be supported through a variety of community programs to encourage their rehabilitation.

Once a person has chosen to take the steps to recovery, a drug rehabilitation centre can be a highly effective way to overcome their addiction.

These centres have the right approach, people that can drive positive results and allows people to regain control. Drug Rehabilitation Drug rehabilitation centres provide the help people need to regain control of their lives. People make the difference The right staff help the rehabilitation centre function properly.

Here are some of the general staff that you find at rehabilitation centers.

Psychologists- A psychologist evaluates, diagnoses, treats, and studies behavior and mental processes; they can also give prescriptions.
Counsellors - Counsellors are objective people who don’t judge you and will listen to you.
Mentors- Mentors help guide the lost and help the needed; they teach and lead.
Doctors- Are there to check your physical health and mental health status. Success Rates Creating positive lives Drug rehabilitation centres are one method that has proven positive effects. Throughout this presentation you have learned about the different treatments, people, and centres. This presentation has taught me about drug rehabilitation and now I can help inform others about this subject. By: Keanna Lee Drug Rehabilitation There are many ways of detoxification:
An out-patient program is when a person shows up for short appointments from time to time, but does not stay at the centre.
A residential program is when a person stays at a centre for about 6-12 months at a time, depending on how long it takes to recover.

Also, there are certain medications and behavioral treatments to help with the process of detoxification and rehabilitation. Sources: http://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/science-addiction/treatment-recovery

Acamprosat Patients There is a wide variety people that go to rehabilitation centres. It could be a relative, a friend, a colleague, or even your mom or dad.

A recent 2012 National Treatment Indicators project concluded that;

On average, people in Canada access rehab services more than once in a year;
Males are more likely than females to access services;
More people access non-residential services than residential services; and
People receiving services are most likely to be between the ages of 24 and 54.

(data was from Alberta, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and the 2009 Corrections and Conditional Release records) http://www.teenchallenge.ca/get-help/canadian-drug-crisis It is difficult to measure because:

Different centres have different clients with different needs (i.e. people with no-fixed address versus those with a home and family support)
Some centres are biased about measuring their success rates in order to get more clients
The cost of measurement can be expensive so some centres measure success without expertise
The definition of success can vary greatly between centres making it hard to standardize Success Rates Although it is hard to measure success some larger organizations have done studies: For instance Alcohol Anonymous published the results of a membership survey from 2007 that showed 33% of their members did not drink for over 10 years after treatment, 12% were sober for between 5-10 years, 24% were sober between 1-5 years and finally 31% were sober for less than one year. Locations Most rehabilitation centres are located in less populated areas because it is calm, soothing, and makes the rehabilitation process easier. Normally they are located on the sea-side or in the country. Although, some small rehab centres are located in the downtown east-side in order to help people who cannot access other services for a number of reasons such as homelessness, poverty, and mental health issues.
