Family involvement is an integral component of an effective drug treatment program. In many cases, the difference between long-term sobriety and relapse is the ability of a recovering individual’s loved ones to offer the necessary support (and to make the necessary changes) to promote healthy living. Though every recovery experience is unique and personal, most effective treatment programs will encourage strong family involvement in the recovery and aftercare process.
The use of medications during rehab depends upon the needs of the client. The Vance Johnson Recovery Center provides supervised detox services.
Because addiction recovery often involves the treatment of co-occurring disorders such as depression or post-traumatic stress disorder, certain medications may be prescribed to treat these conditions during rehab.
However, you will never be forced to take any medications that you do not want to take. When you enter rehab, you do not give up your rights as a person or a patient. In fact, one of the primary objectives of effective rehab programs is to allow you to take greater control over your life.
Depending upon the nature and severity of an individual’s addiction, therapies completed during drug rehab may include counseling, psychotherapy, group therapy, support groups, and family therapy. You can also click here for a more comprehensive look at our inpatient treatment options.
The Vance Johnson Recovery Center gives each patient a schedule that combines individual and group therapies, addiction education, relapse prevention training, recreational activities, meals, and time for personal reflection.

Drug rehab treatment can vary from a few days to months. Research shows that the longer a person remains in treatment, the greater the likelihood that long-term sobriety will result. As with most aspects of treatment (such as therapy types and program structures), determining ideal length of stay involves an analysis of a number of personal factors.
