Drug Rehab Erie

Fear and apprehension are commonly the greatest obstacles to recovery, which is usually a long and challenging task that will more than likely require supervised professional assistance. Getting the appropriate support and professional help, you can overcome your addiction.

At Drug Rehabilitation Center Erie we provide a wide range of addiction treatment services to participants that come to our facility struggling with addiction problems. Most people that become dependent on substances like vicodin, percocet, lortab, heroin, meth and other substances that cause addiction are typically at a loss of how to quit on their own. We have provided help to countless individuals to conquer their addiction by means of our extensive rehabilitation methods.


The initial step of our treatment program is our detox program. After an individual has taken an addictive substance over an extended period of time a physical dependence occurs and takes over. When dependence or addiction has developed it is often not medically safe to suddenly discontinue use without professional assistance from a medical detoxification program. Habit-forming substances such as alcohol, valium, heroin, meth, demerol, vicodin and others produce a wide variety of withdrawal symptoms such as agitation, anxiety, muscle aches, insomnia, vomiting, sweating, abdominal cramping, diarrhea, nausea, lethargy and other symptoms.

At Drug Rehab Facility Erie we offer the needed medical services and support to make our clients as safe and comfortable as possible in the detox process. We provide 24 hour around the clock services and supervision throughout this critical first phase in the recovery process. Our clients typically say that they feel a renewed sense of hope when they have completed our detoxification process.

An important aspect of recovering from addiction is to recognize that you have a problem. An individual who is in denial about their addiction will not be able to move forward to solving a problem they deny they have. For many people, when it comes to taking a honest look into their addiction situation, along with that requires also to try to figure out how and why it developed to start with. Addiction commonly happens when a person starts taking the drug or alcohol to self-medicate in order to handle negative feelings and emotions. If an individual doesn't learn the underlying issues guiding their addiction and does not reach out for help, it will typically be almost impossible for them to overcome their addiction.

Recognizing that you have a problem is a very important step of recovery from drug addiction or alcoholism. However you must also have the desire to put forth the effort to change it. Taking inventory of the reasons for making a change keep you focused and motivated on recovery. Many people say it helps to make a list why they want to change. Reasons might be, for example, wanting to be a better mother/father, be a happier person overall, to feel more accomplished and successful, repair relationships with family and friends, to be healthy again, or to reverse other negative situations caused by your addiction.

Do not just focus on the problems caused by your addiction, because focusing too much on the negative consequences of the past can make you feel hopeless. Rather, focus on your future and recovery. Focus on the great things that will surely materialize when you have conquered your addiction. At Drug Treatment Center Erie we will help you to embrace your new opportunities for a happy, productive, addiction-free life. A new life fulfilling long lost dreams and goals in your newly created drug-free lifestyle. You will be healthier, have more energy and enthusiasm, have greater success financially, have lasting relationships, be more productive at work, and have time to have fun and experience new hobbies and recreation. Taking the time to list out these goals can keep you excited and motivated during the rehabilitation process.

Long Term Treatment goals

At Drug Treatment Program Erie we know that the number one factor in determining success is whether the patient has completely overcome their addiction to drugs and alcohol. Success can only be determined by the patient's confidence in their ability to remain sober. Short term treatment programs commonly fall short of this goal.

We feel that it is very important not to be under time restraints while in rehab. The time that you stay in treatment can offer a lifetime of sobriety, it is definitely worth the investment of whatever time that it requires. We find the underlying issues that may be at the root of the addiction. We will help you to repair the damages that you have caused in your life so that you are not filled with senses of overwhelming shame, regret and disappointment. You will learn life skills, coping skills and relapse prevention methods so that you are not only sober when you leave, but know how to stay sober for a lifetime. We know that you want a better life and we are here to provide you a way to achieve it.

Relapse Prevention

The only person who can change you is you. At Drug Rehabilitation Program Erie it is extremely helpful to be surrounded by a strong support network to help you succeed. Therefore, hold onto the relationships in your life that are supportive and positive. Conversely, be cautious about retaining the unsupported and negative relationships in your life, for example past associates that continue to use drugs, or relationships with people that make you feel inadequate.

Detox is only the initial step in a long process of recovery at Drug Rehabilitation Program Erie; But will also help you to recognize the triggers of your addiction cravings. Anxiety, stress fear, lacking confidence etc. are all potential triggers for addiction. Practicing healthy relapse prevention concepts and skills will help you to push away and overcome the cravings and urges to fall back into addictive behaviors.
