Facing up to your addiction and dealing with the physical symptoms is only the start of the rehabilitation process. The majority of drug addictions involve an initial phase of detoxification, but this is only the beginning of your recovery journey. Whilst this detox stage is designed to remove all traces of drugs from your body, what happens when this phase of treatment is complete? The importance of drug counselling and the benefits it brings to recovery cannot be underestimated. Having that crucial engagement with a drugs counsellor, giving you, or a loved one, time to talk through personal triggers, issues and feelings can be hugely beneficial and can really make a difference to maintaining your recovery in the outside world.
