Addiction is a chronic disease, which means you need to maintain recovery instead of seeing rehab as a cure for a substance use disorder. During drug and alcohol counseling, you and your case manager will discuss the next steps. This will help you to feel secure about what happens along each step of the way and make positive steps towards your goals.
People who successfully overcome their addictions tend to stay in aftercare, attending 12-step meetings and/or individual counseling, for at least two years. Many people continue indefinitely to strengthen their position in recovery and support others who are going through what they’ve been through.
Mental Health Counseling
There has been much discussion in recent years about whether alcohol and drug addiction occurs as a result of mental health disorders or causes them. The simple answer is — both. Psychological issues such as depression, anxiety, phobias and eating disorders often occur at the same time as substance use disorders. Substances profoundly affect the brain, causing imbalances in vital neurotransmitters that affect mood regulation, motivation and behavior, among other things.
