What Addictions Can Be Treated

What Kinds of Addiction Can Be Treated

Addiction is not one size fits all problem

The different forms of addictions can vary in how they present and in how they are treated, but one thing remains true regardless of the type of addiction you are suffering from – you can recover.

REHBS facilities effectively treat substance abuse and addictions to both illicit drugs, prescription drugs, and over the counter drugs, as well as a wide range of behavioral disorders and mental disorders, such as eating disorders, depression and other behavioral issues including but not limited to:

  • Alcohol
  • Heroin
  • Benzodiazepines (Xanax, Valium, Klonopin)
  • Opiates and Opioids (Vicodin, Hydrocodone, Percocet, Roxicodone, Lorcet, Oxycodone, Oxycontin, Fentanyl)
  • Cocaine
  • Crack
  • Synthetic Drugs (Spice or Bath Salts)
  • LSD
  • MDMA (Molly or Ecstasy)
  • Crystal Meth
  • Methamphetamines
  • Amphetamines  (Adderall)
  • Marijuana (Cannabis, Hash)
  • Eating Disorders (Anorexia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, Bulimia)
  • Behavioral Addictions (Gambling, Love, Exercise, Pornography, Internet, Hoarding, Work, Shopping, Video Game)
  • As well as a number of less common behavioral issues.

It does not matter what form of addiction you suffer from, rehabilitation is possible and the first step remains the same, recovery begins when the addict acknowledges they have a problem and commits to change.

Your addiction does not need to ruin your life. Your recovery will likely be an ongoing struggle and it will not be easy, but it is possible and you don’t have to go at rehabilitation alone. With the right lifestyle changes and the support of friends and family, many people do recover, achieving sobriety or putting a stop to the behavior that is having a negative and detrimental impact on their life.

Sometimes, lifestyle changes aren’t enough

Depending on your type of addiction, your personal situation, environment and the resources available, you may find it best to seek outside help from a professional interventionist,  a long term stay rehabilitation facility or a residential treatment program specifically tailored to your disease. Most individuals find they have many options available, it’s simply a matter of doing the research and finding the solution that works best for them and their situation.

Rehabilitation assistance and rehab facility placement services like REHBS can help educate those affected by addiction and make it easier to find a facility that meets your individual recovery, comfort, and financial needs with a simple phone call and at no cost to you. 

We recommend, even if you decide to contact the knowledge consultants at REHBS, to supplement their advice with your own research by learning more about your disease and the recovery options available to you. Remember at the end of the day, you are in control of this process, as regardless of your support system, your recovery inevitably begins and ends with the decisions you make. And, as with any decisions, it helps to be as informed as possible.
