Drug and Alcohol Rehab
Frequently Asked Questions

While every patient’s experience towards recovery is customized to their goals and needs, a typical day in rehab with CRC Rehab Center in Chicago involves patients attending various forms of therapies and treatments. These can range from individual therapy to group therapy and family therapy, where patients work with a licensed therapist using talk therapy. Unlike other rehab centers, treatment at CRC also includes more alternative, evidence-based recovery therapies that treat the whole person, such as yoga, meditation, acupuncture, cupping, and IV therapy. Each individual’s therapies and recovery treatments are specific to helping them heal from drug and alcohol addiction.

The four stages of drug and alcohol rehab will vary from person to person and are customized for each individual. In general, they include the following stages:

Introduction to Addiction Treatment: In these first few days of rehab, you’ll be introduced to your counselor and a thorough medical evaluation is performed by our medical staff. Based on your specific needs, a custom wellness program is designed for you. 

Detox: The detox stage is performed at home and lasts anywhere from a few days to multiple weeks, depending on the severity of your physical withdrawal symptoms. During this period, many individuals experience not just physical withdrawal, but also emotional and psychological withdrawal. Your wellness/treatment plan will address specific triggers for your drug and alcohol abuse and provide you with healthy coping tools for dealing with life. 

Abstain from your Drug(s) of Choice/Maintain Sobriety: This rehab stage helps you to continue identifying your triggers and provides further insight and education on relapsing. During this phase, there is a strong emphasis on creating healthy habits and an overall healthy lifestyle through various alternative and modern therapies. 

Long-Term Recovery: This final stage is focused on creating goals for the long-term in your life. It involves helping you build new relationships, engage in new hobbies and activities, and finding areas of your life that bring you joy. 

There are many types of rehabs available that address addiction and mental health. However, it is rare to find a rehab program that uses a variety of both traditional and modern therapies and treatments to help an individual improve their mental health and overall life. At CRC Rehab Center in Chicago, our program takes the approach of looking at each individual as a whole person (rather than broken) and then incorporates these modern and traditional treatments into their custom recovery plan. 

While the stages of recovery are unique to each individual, they typically include the following categories: 

  1. Effects of the Addiction/Illness: This first stage of addiction typically leaves the individual feeling overwhelmed by the addiction and ultimately controls their lifestyle. 
  2. Giving In to the Addiction/Illness: During this stage, the individual is not yet ready to make a change towards health and happiness in their life. They typically have a difficult time seeing how the addiction is complicating their life and limiting their potential opportunities towards a better life. 
  3. Believing Change is Possible: The individual believes that change is possible and that it is possible for them to live a happy, healthy lifestyle regardless of past choices in their life. 
  4. Committing to Change: After believing change and recovery is possible, the individual commits to the belief by asking for help, or joining a rehab program. 
  5. Taking Action: The individual takes specific actions daily to incorporate change into their life. 

Rehab for drug and alcohol addiction is important because it helps individuals live a full, happy life. Various evidence-based therapies with CRC Rehab help individuals restore their self-confidence and overall sense of worth, while addressing and treating any past emotional or physical trauma. Our rehab center facilitates whole-person healing through a wellness team that consists of the best doctors, clinicians, and holistic practitioners in their field.

It’s common for people with a drug or alcohol addiction to experience a detox when abstaining from the drug of choice for an extended period of time. During detox, the body will physically go through symptoms of withdrawal. Symptoms during the detox will vary, but many symptoms include headaches, nausea, sweating, depression, confusion, and sometimes seizures. Detox symptoms typically last for a few days. At the CRC Rehab Center in Chicago, we make the detox process as comfortable and as safe as possible for each individual – Each patient is also able to detox from their own home.
