Rehab treatment will include medical and psychological care, which aims to ensure that the patient gets off the narcotic substance and into a life they can live clean, sober and happy.
Various forms of addiction counselling and group therapy will also be used to help prepare the individual to live a recovery lifestyle.
Rehabs have to modify and alter their treatment for every patients needs, however each one will have similar rules and regulations for patients to follow. For example, those in treatment have to remain in the clinic for a minimum of 28 days.
