Addiction Treatment Centers are evolving and helping to streamline the recovery process. Two of the major changes are the time frames in which people are requested to stay in drug rehabs and secondly especially here in California treatment centers is the young people that are rallying to put together support groups for people in treatment and the after care of a life time that happens when young people leave treatment. This is exciting now and even more exciting for the future.
Years ago 28 day treatment programs were the norm and if you were in your late teens or early twenties it was often hard to relate to the older crowds that made up local recovery groups.
These are incredible changing times and in the next 5. 10. 15 . 20 years we predict that success rates will drastically improve. Young people will be attracted earlier and with more people their age doing the deal people will be identifying and then allowing themselves realistic time frames to build a foundation and recover.
Other advances in medication, interventions, drug testing, therapy, dual diagnosis are a whole other area of growth that will directly support our claim that in the years to come, Recovery will be spreading like wild fire around the world.
The disease of addiction is progressive - The great news is that recovery is progressive as well.
Theses are exciting times!
