After the initial process of overcoming an addiction, people can often struggle with drug cravings and drug triggers.
The possibility of relapsing is real for many former addicts. At Banyan Treatment Center Chicago, our stabilization program gives our patients the help they need to prevent further relapse and feel confident in their everyday lives again.
What Is a Stabilization Program?
A stabilization program for addiction is for people who have been on the road to recovery, but relapsed. These patients will re-enter our substance abuse treatment programs in Naperville to get back on track. Many will choose a structured environment, like our PHP treatment, to ensure that they will not relapse again. By the time our patients leave, they will have experienced the many stabilization program benefits our treatment centers in Illinois have to offer and should feel assured that they will not relapse again.
Benefits of a Stabilization Program
The stabilization program benefits at our alcohol and drug rehab in Chicago are numerous. At Banyan Chicago, we understand that everyone makes mistakes. The important thing to remember is to not let one mistake derail your entire recovery efforts and send you into a downward spiral back towards addiction.
By getting into a stabilization program, you will get back into a routine that can help you avoid the possibility of a second relapse soon after. This routine will help reinforce good behavior and keep bad habits from forming.
One of the other benefits of a stabilization program is that it can help you continue to work on your mental health and well-being. Often, people who struggle with addiction also suffer from a mental health disorder. While you should have taken part in dual diagnosis treatment during the initial recovery process, outside of treatment it is easy to neglect your mental health. A stabilization program can help you get back in touch with your mental health and help you recognize that your mental health plays in important role in staying sober.
While you were back in the real world, you may have experienced new drug triggers. The various therapy programs during the stabilization program for addiction can help you recognize these triggers and help you learn to cope with being in challenging situations when these drug triggers are present.
The most obvious of the stabilization program benefits is the prevention of more relapses. The program will provide you with the tools you need to overcome drug cravings in the future.
