Drug rehabilitation is the process of psychotherapeutical or medical treatment for addiction to psychoactive drugs including prescription medications, street drugs like heroin, cocaine, amphetamines or alcohol. The term “rehabilitation” can refer to either of these processes, or to any combination thereof. A drug addiction psychiatrist is a psychiatrist who specializes in the treatment of patients with substance abuse problems. These counselors are often the ones who help the addicts create an individualized plan for their drug rehab.

In order for people to be successful in their treatment process, they must be willing to admit that they have a problem and need help. Although many people who are addicted to drugs to feel that they are beyond help, they are not necessarily beyond help – far from it. Drug addiction is a disease of the brain and like any disease, it can only be cured by beating the disease. Drug rehabilitation can certainly cure the patient of his or her addiction to drugs but it does nothing to prevent the patient from relapsing or ruining his or her life again. The goal of treatment is to prevent relapses and to get the person back into society as quickly as possible, without repeating the same mistakes over again.

Drug rehabilitation has become a billion-dollar industry, providing medication, group therapy, 12-step programs and support groups. The most commonly used medications are anti-psychotics such as Ritalin and Adderall; antidepressants such as Elavil and Paxil; and mood stabilizers such as Xanax and Valium. Other medications used to treat drug addiction include Acamprosate and Lotronex. The most commonly used drug rehabilitation treatment includes but is not limited to, inpatient treatment facilities, outpatient treatment centers and community-based treatment programs.
