Drug Rehab Treatment Resources-Can a Forced Drug Addiction Treatment Work?

May 5, 2008

This is a very important question in the minds of the people who have a drug addict in their homes who is denying treatment. The phase of denial is very common in patients of drug addiction. This is the initial phase when they want to believe that nothing is wrong with drug addiction and that they do not need any help to come out of their condition. At this time, some families might try to force the person into a treatment. Another aspect where the force comes in is when people are convicted for drug related crimes and are given the choice between prison and rehab. Most people when faced with this choice will choose rehab because they consider it to be the lesser punishment.

However, the question is, does such a forced rehab treatment work?

The answer is yes. But there’s a condition – the treatment has to be obtained from a reputable drug addiction treatment center to be effective. Why? It is because these centers have all the means needed to convince the patient of the need for treatment. One of the most important devices they use is conversing with the patient and making them realize that their drug addiction can be treated and they can lead a normal healthy life. Due to their diligent counseling, the patient begins to accept the treatment and that is when it starts working.

That is the reason why the law only certifies certain drug rehab centers to rehabilitate the criminals it convicts. These rehab centers are decided on the basis of their counseling measures that help the addicts to overcome their denial.
