Rehab facilities help patients prepare to re-enter society. Drug and alcohol addiction often changes a person’s behaviour, which can affect all aspects of his or her life, including work and relationships. At Zen Detox, we specialise in recovery and making sure our patients do their best to regain their normal lives in a safe and healthy way.
There are many different types of drug rehab facilities. Some specialise in helping patients with a specific drug addiction; others offer a broader range of drug addiction services. Here at Zen Detox, we are a family-run detox centre located at rural Kumeu, Auckland. We provide services treating alcohol and drug dependency and help you function at your best on the road to recovery. Our rehab facility looks into the following factors to prepare you for your journey.
Explore Underlying Issues
There are many reasons people get addicted to drugs, but gaining insight into what draws you towards your substance of choice is important to recovery. Is it a means to cope with stress? Do drugs help numb you emotionally so you don’t have to feel emotional or physical pain? It’s important that you peel back the layers of your behaviour to understand what is behind your drug habits.
Our diverse team of professionals at Zen Detox are trained to help you explore the underlying issues, make sense of them and help you build new coping skills that don’t rely on substance use.
Learn About Addiction
After detoxification, you have the ability to think more clearly and can educate yourself about your addiction. Learning about your addiction means gaining insight into which people, events, sensory experiences and habits trigger cravings for drugs. Most drug rehab facilities can help you explore those triggers so that you can make deliberate efforts to avoid or manage them when you transition back into your daily life.
Build New and Better Habits
A critical part of self-care for a person in recovery is setting and accomplishing goals. Most people, whether in recovery or not, do not know how to set goals that are likely to be achieved. They begin with sincere intentions that eventually get abandoned because they didn’t approach goal setting with the proper mindset. Rehab can help you set short and long term goals in the areas most important to a strong recovery. These areas include goals for your physical and emotional health, relationships, occupational and spiritual aspirations. You will spend some time with our specialists and build new habits that can work to better your life outside of the rehab facility.
Addiction is a disease of the brain, but this doesn’t mean you can’t do anything about it. Just like any other disease, there are interventions to help treat addiction. Going to drug and alcohol rehab is one of the ways to treat addiction. Zen Detox specialises in drug and alcohol dependency treatment. We help you learn how to recover from addiction and help you live a healthy life in recovery.
