    • The first step of the rehab treatment is detoxification. This process happens under the supervision of a physician. In numerous cases, the individual has a serious dependency on alcohol and requires careful and gradual detoxification. The physician takes measures in ensuring that abrupt elimination is avoided as it can lead to high levels of stress and even a relapse.
  • Therapies
    • Depending on the situation of the individual, different therapies are provided. Typically, one has to go through the following three therapies:
      • Individual Therapy
      • Group Therapy

  • Monitoring
    • Numerous alcohol rehab programs include regular toxicology monitoring and screening. This is achieved through different tests including tests including breath, blood, and urine.
  • Rehabilitation
    • Many individuals enrolled in rehab programs are also full-time employees, but there are some who join these programs unemployed and also have few skills. Therefore, vocational rehabilitation services are also included in the treatment plan. This way, individuals can learn useful skills that can assist them in finding the right jobs once they fully recover.
  • Family Meetings
    • Addiction to alcohol is known to lead to strained relationships with loved ones. This is why rehab program also provide family therapy and meetings that can help the individuals in strengthening their relationships. This enhances family unification, which plays a major role in the positive recovery of the individual. This includes various services like childcare, parenting education, and family counseling.

  • Empathy vs. Sympathy
    • According to this study on professional counselors, a counselor who will effectively treat their patients needs to be empathetic. Sympathy, on the other hand, is one of the least important traits your counselor would need.
  • Other Qualities in an Effective Addiction Counselor
    • Besides showing empathy, your counselor should have much more to fall back upon than certification and a license. If the treatment is to be effective, then your counselor needs to have patience. An effective counselor knows that the road to recover isn’t an easy one. It would take their patients much time and considerable effort to get addiction off their backs. Their goal should be to be there with you throughout the process, including the time when you finally get there!
    • Effective counselors also know the importance of trust. A person battling an addiction won’t easily put their trust in just anyone. The cousnelor would have to work with them in order to establish trust. Only then would the patient even think about opening up to their counselors!

  • Principles of Addiction Counselling
    • One of these principles is discussed in detail below: no single treatment is going to be effective for everyone.
    • Another principle involves the counselor being available to provide treatment to their patients regularly. If they can’t be there when there patients needs them the most, then the process might take much longer.
    • Lastly, if addiction counseling is to be effective, then the counselor should work with the patient to understand the degree of complexity of the disorder. If they know how far they have to go, it could give the patients some much needed hope.
  • What Worked for One Might Not Work for the Other
    • Different kinds of addiction counseling are offered at different facilities. Some of them have 12-step addiction programs to help the patients. Others will focus on family counseling sessions believing the support of the loved ones can strengthen a patient’s resolve. An effective counselor would know that each patient is going to be different.

Addiction Counseling and Other Important Stepping Stones on the Road to Recovery
  • Deciding to Get Clean & Sober
    • If you are under the care of a primary care physician, then you should consult with them before you decide anything. Their dependence on drugs, alcohol etc. might make it difficult to withdraw from a substance. The doctor might even be able to recommend a good addiction counselor to you.

  • From Being Sober to Recovery
    • Don’t think of recovery as a transformation of who you are as a person. You might think you will change and become someone greater than who used to be. You’d want all the friends and family that you have lost along the way to return to you. You might evenwant to get better quickly so you can go back to working. Such thoughts do not make the right combination for healing.

  • Education
    • Before they can become a licensed addiction counselor, a person must have an Associate’s, Bachelor’s, or a graduate degree. Since there isn’t a specific degree path that is needed to become an abuse counselor, there would be a difference in the subjects and courses that many counselors will study. Most of them will have studied the subjects of sociology, psychology, and others related to mental health and wellbeing.
  • Certification
    • Certification isn’t always required though it is usually recommended in the case of potential addiction counselors. While state law will dictate the need for certification, some counselors will also look for additional certification. If your counselor has, then you might be looking at someone with a good set of skills and the right level of motivation to help their patients.
  • Experience
    • Don’t worry that you would be handed off to a green addiction counselor. Even though, each counselor will gain more experience the longer they practice, novices will receive training. They will be allowed to learn and acquire the necessary skills before they are deemed ready to listen to patients.

  • Start Looking
    • Finding the right addiction counselor could be as simple as looking up the local professionals in your area on the internet. Do some research, find out the kind of addictions they have helped others with, and then make an appointment.
    • Alternatively, you could know someone, such as your doctor, a friend, or a loved one, who can recommend one to you. If you set value by their opinion, why not pay the counselor a visit to see if they are the best match for you.
  • Check Credentials
    • Are they who they say they are?
    • Do they have the right degree associated with this profession?
    • Do they have a license to practice?
    • Is the license still valid?
  • Check Reviews
    • If you want to know whether the addiction counselor of your choice can help you or not, simply ask! Don’t just ask them. You also need to ask the other people with problems similar to yours whom the counselor may have treated. The best way of doing that is by checking reviews online.
