The 3 Stages of Rehab Drug and Alcohol Treatment Centers (How it Works)

The following presentation contains graphic images and shocking information viewer discretion is advised in the United States over a hundred and fifty people a day die from drug and alcohol related problems two-thirds of homeless people report that drugs and/or alcohol we're a major reason for their becoming homeless when addiction strikes it strikes without warning a dangerous road awaits those who don't get help people with drug and alcohol issues are in danger tremendous danger as a doctor a mother and a concerned community member I've seen firsthand what drugs and alcohol can do car accidents jail time loss of limbs injuries bankruptcy overdose even homelessness or death these are all things I can see on a daily basis it's not a matter of if something tragic will happen it's a matter of when the vast majority of addicts will experience one of these consequences that I just mentioned it's not unusual 
for me to see patients who've been gang raped shot rookie assaulted or have nice threatening diseases such as cancer liver disease all because of using alcohol and drugs if you or someone you love is struggling with an addiction there are two things you need to remember number one addiction is a disease the addicted person is not just quit drugs or quit drinking as if by magic addiction doesn't work that way a person with an addiction is going to need structured help in which they get therapy support and even medical attention if needed only that way can a person find a way to an empowered life number two help is available treatment can save your job it can save your relationship you can't even save your life stick with me through this short video presentation and I will talk to you about different treatment options what would happen when you go to rehab and how to get in touch with the right people who can help you I will also tell you a story that you simply must hear it is about a woman who waited to get help for a loved one only to lose them a few days later to an overdose please listen to this story closely and don't make the same mistakes she did lastly I will tell you about new laws that make it possible for you or your loved ones to get a diction treatment add little to no out-of-pocket cost to you but first let me introduce myself my name is saya beheshti but you can call me dr. B I'm 45 years old I live in Southern California and I'm a divorced mother of two I am also an addiction specialist and I've been helping people take their lives back from drugs and alcohol for many years after seeing hundreds of patients recover from addictions I can tell you there is hope if you get into a treatment program and stick with it you will find that the benefits of far beyond what you imagine treatment offers a second chance at life new beginning if you want to avoid life destroying events such as divorce using your children we're killing someone in a car wreck treatment offers you that chance treatment can save lives I've had many people tell me that when they first started drinking they had a lot of fun with it but before they knew it they had lost control over the drinking and it was the drinking that was controlling them they couldn't do anything else when their urge to drink would strike them if you feel powerless against her drug of choice if you feel that it has control over you that your slave to it think about how it would feel for you to be free from that addiction takes away your freedom treatment gives you your freedom back it gives you back the power and releases you from the life of slavery you've been living treatment can set you free and freedom is the most amazing feeling you can ever imagine treatment can give you the tools to recover and thrive so you can no longer if you lost confused and powerless over alcohol drugs why try to do it alone if you've ever been hit with a craving and you've been on your own you know how hard it is to face it in a treatment center you will have 24-hour support and someone will hold your hand through the hardest times once you improve you can start repairing all those relationships you've damaged you can regain those people you lost you can get a new career get new education you can even start chasing down those dreams you've been neglecting for years and years treatment always takes place in a safe environment well nobody will look down on you or judge you the life of an addict can be quite chaotic and when you check yourself into a treatment center you can find that safety and tranquility you need to make improvement imagine how great you will feel if you put yourself in an environment where you can work on yourself without the demands of family without a dealer who wants to get paid without a job that keeps putting pressures and deadlines on you as a doctor I can arrange for you to go on medical leave without your co-workers or boss knowing where you're going imagine how freeing it would feel to be able to get out of work scot-free and getting your life finally handled once and for all without anyone judging you condemning you or even asking you where you're going if you feel unable to improve under the current circumstances you're not alone no one should expect you to make massive life changes under so much pressure it's just not realistic real healing takes real effort and real time by removing the stress you'll have a chance to be discovered yourself will be able to heal from all the pain and all the stress that causes you to start using in the first place you might be wondering why I can be so sure that treatment can help you may be asking yourself why should I be listening to some random doctor who lives on the beach in California well those are reasonable questions I wasn't always a doctor I started my journey as a computer scientist and moved on to the master's degree in physiology later i got my medical degree from UC irvine did my residency at UC Irvine Medical Center I worked at the VA hospital where I spent six years helping veterans with addiction trauma and anything else they needed for their mental well-being it was during this time that I became a published researcher and became certified in treating opiate addiction the reason I switched from computer science to medicine is very simple all my life I've had people 
come up to me and tell me their deepest darkest secrets and share their innermost struggles with me after years and years of this I realized that I'm a born listener I listened to people without judging them on lecturing that I realized that most people mourn listening and less lecturing and judging the most important thing a doctor can do for you is to listen it's always been my dream to start my own treatment center and when I did I called it healing path recovery this name always reminds me that listening is the key to healing listening leads to understanding and understanding leads to empathy empathy leads to healing healing leads to a more empowered life these are the words that I live by and I insist that all my therapists learn this principle before they can work with me at healing path recovery I am the founder and medical director of healing pass were covered and unlike other treatment facilities human path recovery is a hundred percent physician owned and operated I don't answer to investors or profit ears I answered only to my patients if you decide to get treatment I strongly recommend you the first center that is a hundred percent physician owned and operated that's the only way to be sure that your entire care from beginning to end is overseen by a physician at healing path recovery I know every single patient and I personally oversee them every step of the way I don't care about your money on your insurance plan I care about saving your life and giving you a new hope for a brighter tomorrow did you know that at Haven pass recovery we give grants and scholarships every month we also help our patients get insurance is they don't already have it we even fight for you  to get to maximum benefits even when your insurance companies say no just pick up the phone and call us at 1844 to just be and we'll get you taken care of remember it's a hundred percent confidential and convenient and easy to get started because we will do all the paperwork for you if you're calling a few different treatment centers don't forget to ask them if they are a hundred percent physician owned and operated ask them if they're medical director knows every single patient by name ask them if you can mark some videos on YouTube of their doctors talking about treatment now let's talk about the three different phases of rehabilitation the first phase is called detox in detox you will enter a medical facility where you will be supervised than taken care of while your body goes through this first round of changes when you arrive at detox the doctors and nurses will make sure that you get the rest sleep and medication that you might need to get through this initial phase their job is to simply make you as comfortable as possible while making sure that your body is not threatened by the detox process the second phase is called rehabilitation for most people it takes about 30 to 90 days for this phase you can choose to go to a residential program where you live there and have the program at the same time or you can choose to go to a sober living facility and do a day program I have found in my experience that both methods work equally effectively in the beginning you will need a high level of supervision and structure you want to spend as many hours as possible in therapy sessions and positive healing activities as you progress you will gain more and more of the skills and the tools that you need in order to live a drug and alcohol free life as you gain more and more skills you will feel more confident and you will realize that you can reenter the outside world the third phase is called maintenance in maintenance you need to continue the good habits that you've developed so far you can go to some meetings every week or continue therapy in order to maintain these habits there are some good programs out there such as smart recovery or alcoholics anonymous that can help you greatly with this process those are the three phases of recovery detox rehabilitation and maintenance if you're not sure where to begin just call us at 1844 to just be or email at help at heating pads recovery calm and we will get back to you and answer your questions did you know that there are laws in place that make it possible for you to get treatment and little to no cost to you the two laws I'm talking about are the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare and the mental health parity Act the Affordable Care Act makes it possible for people who never had insurance before two get insurance you may not believe it but it's easier than using the mental health parity Act requires insurance companies to treat mental health and addiction issues as seriously as they would treat surgeries and doctor visits what this means for you or your loved ones is that help is easier to get and more affordable than it's ever been before maybe you're in a situation where you know you need treatment but you're worried about the cost or taking time off work or about leaving your obligations if that's the case please stay tuned with us and we'll cover all of

those scenarios a few years ago a young woman called me she was very worried about her boyfriend who had just relax back into using drugs and alcohol I told her to call his family I urged her to call his family because I was worried about him too but she didn't want to tell on him so she decided to wait he kept getting worse and worse she finally decided to call them two

days after she called he died of an overdose this is the kind of story that I hear way too often it reminds us all that we need to get help right away that waiting can be fatal if you have a loved one who is in crisis please please don't wait call us right now at 1844 to just be if you're not a family member maybe you're someone who suffers from alcoholism or addiction

yourself and you just don't feel ready to quit yet well let me ask you this will you be ready after you wake up in the hospital after a motor vehicle accident will you be ready after Child Protective Services takes away your kids or will you be ready when your loved one leaves and files for divorce I have so many patients come in and tell me they wish they had changed sooner they wish

they had sought help when it would have made a difference in their families it's funny how addiction works your mind plays tricks on you it may tell you all things aren't so bad oh I have things under control oh another drink won't hurt it's only when your life starts crashing down around when you start thinking that things have gone wrong don't let denial fool you don't wait to get help don't wait until you

hurt yourself or seriously hurt someone else if you're worried about who's going to take care of your kids or your pets while we go away to we have let me tell you this if you keep going on like this you won't be able to take care of them much longer anyway and then who is going to take care of them if you can't take care of yourself how do you expect yourself

to take good care of your children and pets losing your kids is not a joke I see it all the time if you're an addict and your life is spinning out of control around you Child Protective Services will take your children away Animal Control will come and take your animals away give them the life they deserve a life where their caretaker is living well and free of addictions some people are afraid of

the embarrassment of going to rehab they're afraid but their family or friends may think when they find out they want to rehab first of all remember that this process is a hundred percent confidential when I put you on a medical leave I do not state the reason for the medical leave it is your privacy rights to keep that to yourself your job or your friends do not need to know why if your humiliation

should never stop you from doing what you know is right let me ask you this how many times have you already humiliated yourself because of your drug addiction or alcoholism how many times have you woken up not remembering anything you did the night before and then you get these calls from people telling you all these catastrophic ly embarrassing and humiliating things that you did and that you can't even recall I bet you've done things that are way more hey Mary chicken into rehab if you're worried about what your family and friends are going to think I've got news for you your family and friends already know you're an addict you're not fooling anyone addicts think they can pull the entire world it can't your family and friends are just playing along they know the lazy they know your family and friends will expect you much more when you get better that's the bottom line maybe you think your problem is not that bad or that you can beat this on your own if you're not that bad then why are you surfing the internet looking for information on addiction why have you watched this entire video you need help you know you need help don't let your denial see you let me give you one simple test if you're really not sure if you have a problem ask your family and friends tell them to be honest with you when you have an addiction it's easy to lose perspective I understand that no one will judge you for getting treatment being in denial is something my counselors and I understand very well and we hope you find ways to be more honest with yourself in the future living in the real world can be a beautiful place denial on the other hand can be very scary the truths can pop up at any moment and ruin your day if you're worried about the cost of rehab I'd like you to weighed against the cost of maintaining your alcoholism or addiction how much money have you already spent cleaning up your messes how much money have you spent on drugs or alcohol how much money have you lost by damaging your job or under teaming in it think about all the money you will make if you can focus on your career instead of your next fix remember a significant portion of your cost or even maybe the entire cost can be covered by insurance even if you don't have insurance call us and we'll help you get one just pick up the phone and call 1844 to just pee and we'll discuss your options also remember that we give out grants and scholarships every month and you may be the next one to qualify for it don't put it off any longer we are standing by waiting to help you or your loved one just give us a call or email and we'll help you on your path to recovery I'm dr. B and I'd like to thank you for watching you
