Although Missoula may seem like an all-American town with no seedy underbelly, appearances can be deceiving. In fact, this region is known for its high rate of drug use. Marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamines are all top drugs in Missouri, and even prescription drugs are slowly becoming fashionable with drug users. If you're experiencing problems with illicit substances, your future pathway could be bleak. The best way to improve yourself is simply through substance abuse rehabilitation.
Understanding the Root Cause of Addiction
The main purpose of rehabilitation isn't to cleanse your body of substances, but it's meant to give you a deeper understanding of yourself. Our professionals will work with you at your own pace, and they'll find out why you are using drugs. In many cases, personal counseling sessions aren't about the drug itself because they revolve around the core problem in your mind. Common traumas that are associated with excessive drug use are assaults, abuse and childhood issues.
As we help you dive into your own problems, you'll slowly see a pattern emerge. You might be coping with a trauma by masking it with a high, for example. Once you deal with the trauma, you can move forward from your drug habit.
Understanding Group Therapy
Although one-on-one sessions with a counselor are highly beneficial, group therapy is a natural movement through the treatment process. In a group structure, you discuss subjects only addicts would understand. Some topics might include:
- Stealing money for drugs
- Hurting a loved one during an addiction intervention
- Sharing craving concerns
During these group sessions, you'll find friends for life that truly understand you. In the end, you can return the favor and help a group friend in the future. Cravings can occur at any time, and you both require support from one another at some point.
We’ll Help You Find a Private and Personal Treatment Program
If you have made the decision to kick your drug habit and live a sober lifestyle, congratulations. This is the first step on your journey toward recovery. Upon deciding that drug rehab needs to be in your future in order for you to become sober, there are a plethora of choices you will need to make. One of the decisions surrounds where you will go to treatment. Aside from deciding between an inpatient and outpatient treatment center, you might consider attending treatment in another city besides the one you live in.
The most common reason that this choice is made is to make drug rehab more private and personal. Leaving town can make rehab more confidential for you. You will also need to decide whether or not you have familial responsibilities that would keep you at home. In addition, some people have jobs they must go to or school programs they're involved in.
As you can see, there are many considerations to make concerning this decision, but our skilled and experienced representatives are standing by to help. Give us a call today to discuss your options.
