The difference between a domestic and an international drug & alcohol addiction center

An addiction is a desire, or an urge to do an activity for enjoyment that can later become hard and or impossible to stop. By using cigarettes, alcohol, or any other drug excessively, you can become addicted to it. These can be harmful to your health and can even lead to death. There are lots of reasons why addictions begin. In the case of drugs, alcohol and nicotine, these substances affect how you feel, both physically and mentally. These feelings can be enjoyable and create a powerful urge to use these substances again.

Drug addiction, medically referred to as substance use disorder is a condition in which a person loses control over their way of thinking, causing changes in behavior. The use of controlled or illegal medications affects the brain’s efficiency and decreases cognitive functions. Drugs like alcohol, marijuana, and nicotine are most commonly abused.

Why choose a residential addiction center?

With residential rehab, individuals stay at the facility round-the-clock for an extended period of time (generally no less than 30 days and usually no more than a full year). These 24/7 inpatient arrangements help patients focus on their recovery by physically removing themselves from their everyday setting. Patients are given a serene environment that supports reflection, healing and recovery. They are surrounded by caring professionals and peers who are also on the road to recovery. Residential addiction treatment centers provide a home-like, friendly environment.

Why choose an outpatient addiction center?

Outpatient care is aimed at patients who cannot drop everything and move into a residential setting for an extended period of time. Outpatient programs include many of the same services offered by residential centers. Some of these services are detox and counseling.

While both types of treatment centers can treat all kinds of addiction, outpatient programs are ideal for those with a less severe substance use disorder, or as continued care after completing inpatient treatment. These programs also cost less, so they may be more practical for those who can’t afford a residential treatment stay. In addition, if patients must remain at home due to work or family demands, outpatient services are the logical choice.

Temptations and Distractions

The most important benefits of residential treatment centers are that they provide a distraction-free environment that helps the patient to focus on their goals. The patient is removed from the daily stresses, home responsibility, family, and other relationships and provides the patient with dedicated time to focus on their own recovery and treatment.

Why choose an international treatment center?

Recovery is a journey that is so important to an individual’s health and mental wellbeing and by choosing an international treatment center, you are embarking on a new journey in a safe, trusted and secluded environment. There are many advantages to choosing a new life abroad and having a sense of the benefits can help with the decision to take the next steps to freedom of addiction.

The benefits of an international treatment center:

Better value for money – Costa rica recovery treatment center is much more cost-effective for patients, not only are you provided with stability, support and 12 steps to recovery but you will not have to pay huge amounts of money for standardized treatment. Costa Rica recovery is usually around four times cheaper than a domestic/USA based treatment center, in many cases, our treatment center costs just 25% of what many other organizations charge.

Protection of privacy – putting distance between your hometown and your rehab allows you the space to talk about your recovery on your terms, without fearing that others will have knowledge about your condition, causing potential risk in your career and social status. At a treatment recovery center like Costa Rica Recovery center, a client’s confidentiality is a priority in every case.

Complete removal of triggers – stepping completely outside of your everyday life gives you the opportunity and chance to recognise your triggers without having to be constantly bombarded with them. This is a significant advantage in the early stages of recovery.

When you commit to rehab abroad, you are giving yourself some real “me” time to focus on yourself, and build a new path in a place that is in full support of your growth and recovery. International drug and alcohol treatment centers give you a real opportunity for change, self-love, worth and commitment.
