Specialty Alcohol Rehabilitation
Specialty alcohol rehabilitation offers services tailored to specific groups of people. For example, if you are Christian or Native American, specialty services adapt traditional therapy or 12-step group principles to your religious or cultural beliefs so that you will be able to get more out of rehab activities. There are many reasons why you should seek out a specialty rehab:
- You may feel more comfortable with a program that shares your important religious or cultural beliefs. If you opt for a religious-based program, such as a Christian or Jewish rehab program, you will learn principles that are aligned with your religious beliefs. This can help you accept the new ideas you are learning because you won't feel a conflict between your belief system and the new principles. In addition, you'll find it easier to talk to therapists and other addicts who share the same religious background that you have. If your culture is more important to you than your religion, you can experience these same benefits by going to a rehab that specializes in helping people from your cultural background.
- Assistance includes focus on your special needs. Members of some groups may have reasons for drinking that other groups don't have. For example, nonheterosexuals and transgender people might feel tempted to drink because of nonacceptance by family members or discriminatory laws. A program that is exclusive to members of a particular group can give time and attention to teaching participants how to deal with these problems in a healthy manner.
- Specialized help reduces embarrassment. It can be difficult for people to admit they have a drinking problem. People who are members of particular professions where they are expected to be role models for society may find it especially difficult because of a perceived blot to their reputation. So specialized help for professionals can reduce embarrassment and make it easier for them to seek help. Similarly, some people may feel more comfortable admitting they need help in front of people from the same religious or cultural background so that they can feel the other addicts in the room are just like them.
Alcoholism Care Options
If you want to get specialized treatment for your drinking problem, there are several alcoholism care options available to you. One option is a traditional inpatient rehab that caters to members of a particular community. For example, there are some inpatient rehabs meant only for people who work in law enforcement. This type of treatment requires you to live at a rehab center for a period of time. You won't be able to go to work or participate in other daily activities during this time, but you'll be surrounded by other alcoholics who come from the same background as you in some important ways. During rehab, you will have the opportunity to attend group and individual therapy sessions as well as 12-step meetings led by people who are also members of the same community you have chosen to work with.
If you are not interested in an inpatient program, you can also get therapy via an outpatient program. This type of program allows you to continue working; you live at home and go to a rehab center for treatment. You can get specialized outpatient care if you wish.
