The most important element of any treatment programme is the clinical programme. Do some research to ensure that staff members are experienced and qualified in their respective fields. Also, look for a programme that utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) or Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) as a foundation, paired with a 12-step model. These approaches have been proven to be most effective in the treatment of both addiction and co-occurring disorders.

For all these reasons, once an addiction is recognized, one should take the necessary steps to get into rehab immediately. Often, the addicted individual is too wrapped up in their addiction and denial that they are unable to recognize the problem and change their situation. In this case, loved ones may need to organize an intervention in order to encourage someone into treatment until they are able to identify their issues and work towards recovery on their own initiative.
Signs someone needs immediate drug rehab
- Does the substance or behaviour (i.e. gambling, sex, or video gaming) consume your thoughts?
- Are you often or always thinking of the next time you can use, and make your plans around using?
- Do you prioritize your drug or alcohol use over time with family or friends, work, or self-care?
- Do you continue to use despite having social or interpersonal problems caused or exacerbated by the effects of the substance?
Answering ‘yes’ to any of these questions are telltale signs that you are suffering from an addiction.
Dual-diagnosis is incredibly common among those with addiction. It is often the case that a co-occurring disorder or underlying mental health issues may have presented prior to the addiction, and the use of substance started as a way to numb the pain or intense emotions associated with the mental illness. Regardless of it’s possible origins however, once one crosses the line from use, to abuse, and into addiction those underlying mental health issues serve to further fuel one’s addiction and therefore need to be treated in tandem with addiction.
