It is only after individual therapy that doctors determine the root cause of one’s drug addiction. And since the reasons from patient to patient vary, it is unheard to provide a group of addicts with the same kind of treatment, although there might be a few similarities.
If one is hooked to a particular drug or alcohol, the first step to a full recovery is that he or she must be taken away from the environment that has led him to fully depend on the drug or alcohol. And this is where an addiction center that is secluded, away from the daily humdrum of society and the bad influences that can make an addict completely drop his guard to only further spiral downwards into a state of continued self destruction, and a state pretty close to death.
This is why most people (especially friends and family) normally drag addicts to a drug rehab center for them to reevaluate their priorities, and also kick the habit on their way out. And it would be impossible without the medical help that doctors provide at these centers to drop the habit on their own.
So, whether or not an addict wants to recover, it is important that the family and friends recognize the drug habit and spur them on to recover fully by admitting them (even forcibly) into a drug rehab center.
