Drug rehab is the process by which a person with a drug use disorder is trained, acclimatized and prepared for a life without substance abuse. The end goal is long-term sobriety and a life free from addiction. At Siliguri Grace Foundation, we have the facilities, experience, the know-how and customized plans to help users rehabilitate and find their way out of drug addiction. This gives each patient the best chance to successfully re-integrating back into society and living a normal life devoid of addiction problems.
Residential (or inpatient treatment) is where the patient stays at the drug rehab centre for the full period of their treatment. The duration of treatment varies depending on the patient and the facility. Most centres offer 30-, 60- and 90-day programs, and some maybe even longer. Inpatient care is effective as it removes all external triggers and treats the full spectrum of a patient’s needs including physical, mental and behavioural health, as well as offering 24-hour supervision and medical attention if needed.
For outpatient treatment, the patient does not live at the facility. Instead, they continue living at home and visit the facility for appointments and therapy sessions. This type of rehab is well-suited to individuals who have life responsibilities that they are not able to put on holds such as family or work commitments. In these cases, it is essential that a patient has a strong social structure in place.
MEDICALLY SUPERVISED DETOX TREATMENT
Depending on the severity of the drug addiction, rehab usually starts with a medically-supervised detox to help manage withdrawal symptoms as a patient is weaned off the substance. This takes place in a safe and secure environment, where the patient is constantly monitored.
COUNSELING (INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP THERAPY)
Counseling is usually offered both individually and in groups and most programs will require that a patient participates in both. Individual and group therapy are typically offered in both inpatient and outpatient treatment programs.
The focus of individual counseling is to identify behavioural and lifestyle triggers that need to be addressed in order for the patient to have a chance at long-term sobriety. These triggers include job status, illegal activities and strained relationships with family members. The sessions help with understanding cravings and developing proactive steps that can be taken to avoid or manage the triggers.
Group counseling is used to support individual therapy sessions as they provide further insight into addictive behaviours, as well as offering support and positive affirmation.
TREATMENT FOR CO-OCCURRING DISORDERS
In many instances, a patient suffers from other concerns that influence their drug abuse. These mental disorders can either have been pre-existing (present before the addiction), may have increased in severity because of the addiction, or have been triggered by the drug use. The drug rehab that you choose should understand the relationship between co-occurring disorders and treat them alongside drug addiction.
FIND THE RIGHT DRUG REHAB NEAR YOU IN SILIGURI
If you are looking at different rehab facilities to determine which would be a good match, it’s time to ask them some important questions. The way that they answer the questions will have an impact on helping you decide whether a particular centre is a good fit for your needs.
SOME QUESTIONS INCLUDE:
1. What types of addiction does your treatment centre specialize in?
The treatment centre that you choose should have many years of experience in treating your specific addiction as well as any co-occurring disorders. As every substance may have different physical and psychological effects, and every person has different reactions to those effects, it is important the treatment centre be completely familiar with your specific situation.
2. What types of individual therapy are offered at the centre?
The majority of treatment centres offer both group and individual therapy for rehabilitation. In addition to that, there are a number of traditional and alternative therapies that may also be offered. Find out if the drug rehab offers therapies that are important to you. This may include family therapy, evidence-based therapies such as cognitive-behavioural therapy, or a more holistic approach including yoga or equine therapy. Do some research on the different therapy options then find a rehab that is able to offer the approach that you are looking for.
3. What peer group programs are on offer?
Many drug rehabs offer the 12-step program, for drug use disorders this is offered by Narcotics Anonymous. There are a couple of other alternatives including the SMART recovery program as well as in-house variations on the 12-step program and the SMART program.
4. Is the facility licensed? What credentials do they have?
Access to skilled professionals that will be able to help you recover from your addiction is an essential part of any drug rehab facility. Find out what qualifications the different clinical staff have, and the amount of experience that they are able to offer. Not all facilities are run by qualified doctors and nursing staff, which may be the difference between being able to recover from your addiction or relapsing.
5. What is their approach to aftercare and what sober living options do they have?
An important part of choosing a rehab centre near you is that they have effective aftercare options once you are discharged from the centre. Many drug rehabs offer guidance and a structured plan for your time immediately after leaving the centre. These guided programs are essential to staying sober and should be considered an essential part of what your rehab offers. When choosing a rehab centre, find out how their aftercare program works and if it would be a good fit for you.
A DAILY DRUG REHAB SCHEDULE AT SILIGURI GRACE FOUNDATION
The morning schedule at SILIGURI GRACE FOUNDATION is primarily to introduce routine to a patient’s life. The key to the successful rehabilitation of a drug user is to give them habits and routines that will replace their bad habits when they were a drug user. By allowing patients to follow a natural sleep cycle, rise at a particular time and get used to a routine, the rehab program gives patients a routine that they can practically and constructively sustain after discharge.
- Early rise
- Group sessions
A professional therapist or counselor leads group sessions, and they have three main goals. The first is to help the patient to identify what has brought them to rehab; the second is to allow the patient to understand their drug addiction triggers and the third is to develop strategies to help the patient understand how to avoid the triggers.
- Intensive one-on-one therapy
- Group therapy
Group therapy sessions are designed to promote camaraderie among patients. In these sessions, patients are encouraged to share their stories to help facilitate psychological recovery. The sessions also help establish fellowship which allows patients to build trust and open-up more.
- Private behavioural therapy
There are a number of different therapy options available, and each patient’s schedule will be different depending on the therapy best suited to their needs. These therapies include:
- One-on-one sessions with a therapist to address personal issues and worries

- Cognitive behavioural therapy focused on the ingrained pattern of behavioural reactions towards particular triggers and then finding new responses to problematic triggers

THE COSTS OF DRUG REHAB
For many people, the thought of drug rehab is impossible due to the prohibitively high costs. But there are a number of alternatives that you should consider to ensure that you receive drug rehab treatment at a price you can afford. Drug rehab, especially if you are receiving inpatient care, can be expensive.
When you contact a prospective treatment centre, the support team should make the cost structure clear and easy to understand, they should try to help you with alternative payment options, as well as a payment plan and they should be willing to follow up with your insurance provider to find out what treatment your policy will cover.
At Siliguri Grace Foundation, our rates to provide a detox or rehab service will depend on the type of addiction treatment needed for the patient, the type of diet and facilities that will be required and will also be decided upon by the extent of utilities used to provide detox and rehab treatment to the patient. Our customer care specialists have a good understanding of what the various policies cover and will endeavour to answer all questions that you may have about the program and the costings.
There are also a number of payment options in addition to paying out of your own pocket or using your insurance. Take time to explore your options before making a decision.
