When you are suffering with a drug or alcohol addiction, you may feel lost. You may feel alone and like nobody understands you. These are completely normal feelings. Just about every addict and alcoholic experiences these feelings. However, you should know that the professionals in the drug and alcohol treatment centers are here for you. At Magnolia Ranch Recovery, we understand what you are going through and are here to help. We want to help you get started on the road to recovery. By learning what you can expect in rehab, you can take that first step toward the rest of your life.

Assessment and Plan Creation

When you first decide that you are going to get clean and sober, you will talk to the professionals at the alcohol rehab center. You will have assessments done. These assessments will test the severity of addiction, type of addiction, and other factors related to your addiction as well. Once you have taken all the assessments, you and the professional rehab staff members will work on creating a treatment plan. This could include a variety of addiction treatments. However, you should know the treatment centers plan can and will be customized to fit your recovery needs.


When you are entering the drug rehab center, after you have done the assessment and had your treatment plan developed, you will start the detox program.  The detox staff members will make you as comfortable as they can. Not every person with an addiction to alcohol or drugs will experience the same withdrawal symptoms. However, some of the symptoms you might experience include diarrhea, muscle spasms, stomach cramps, aches and pains, headaches, nausea, vomiting, and some others. When you are attending the detox program, you will get all the help you need to help you get clean and sober.

Types of Treatment

There are various types of treatment offered at Magnolia Ranch Recovery as well. If you are in the rehab center program, some of the treatments you might have include individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, daily meetings, and more. These are all options for both the inpatient and outpatient  treatment programs. Some of those who are recovering from an alcohol or drug addiction need more intensive care and supervision than others. This is something that will be discussed when you are creating your treatment plan with the staff members.

Do you suffer from an alcohol or drug addiction? If so, hopefully this information helps you to know what to expect when entering one of the drug or alcohol treatment centers. Each recovering alcoholic or addict experiences this process in their own way. A treatment that worked for someone else may not work exactly the same for you. You must take your own journey and your own time to recover. You must do what it takes to overcome your addiction.
