One good thing to realize when it comes to treatment for substance abuse, is the fact that drug treatment is not 100% successful. No treatment is. The success rate for Substance Use Disorders is based a lot on the motivation of the individual seeking the treatment. One unfortunate issue is that, often times the person needs to reach so called “Rock Bottom” before seeking treatment. Often times by then, the individual has already lost so much in his or her life, that they cannot see a good future ahead. If a person with an addiction would seek out treatment sooner, they would tend to be more favorable outcome in general.
It’s important to know that if an individual relapses before completing one full year of being clean and sober; that this greatly increases the chance of relapsing in the future. If a person with a drug problem can remain clean and sober for one year, they then have about a 50-50 chance of remaining clean and sober for the rest of their lives. For that reason, everything should be done to help the person attain that one year of sobriety. After one year, the odds of relapsing become lower than 50%. It’s important to realize that the longer one stays sober, the greater the chance that they will be able to maintain their sobriety for the long-term. For more information call now: 601-261-9101.
