Is Full Recovery from Drug Addiction Possible?

Addiction comes with many rude awakenings, problems with friendships, family members, struggling relationships, and health complications. It’s suffocating and can suck the good out of every aspect of your life, leaving you feeling even more dependent upon the substance for relief.

But no matter how far gone you feel, there’s always hope.

Drug addiction is a treatable disorder, and you can achieve full recovery with the right mindset, hard work, and a treatment plan fit for you.

What Percentage of Drug Addicts and Alcoholics Recover?

There are a lot of variables that play into addiction recovery statistics and relapse rates. Addiction relapses can occur after short- and long-term recovery without the proper foundation for success. Because of this, it’s difficult to pinpoint the exact percentage of addicts who stay sober. In general, around 40 to 60 percent of individuals struggling with alcohol and drug addiction eventually recover.

We say this not to discourage you but rather to point out the importance of choosing a high-quality addiction treatment center that effectively aims to help addicts stay clean post-treatment.

What Does it Take to Stay Clean?

Post-detox treatment is a consistent factor in those who want to begin and maintain a sober life. When you first start treatment, you must go through detox from any drugs or alcohol addictions.

At Soul Surgery, we offer a medical detox treatment program to help you with withdrawal symptoms and the overall process of detoxing. 

Following detox, it’s crucial to take part in drug rehab. This allows you to learn more about your addiction’s root cause, coexisting bad habits, and triggers. You’ll become more aware of needed lifestyle changes and pick up healthy ways and tools to cope with cravings. 

Focusing on more than just the addiction itself gives you further insight into how to combat the disorder. Our center offers support groups, counseling, therapy, and dual-diagnosis treatment, which looks at mental health as a contributing factor in addiction.
