Why do drug addicts fall behind after rehab?

Landau Specialist Clinic

Addiction and dependence have a long history in our society and can affect each of us in a variety of ways. Causes and triggers can often be found in our life stories and limit our social and professional opportunities and perspectives.

The therapies offered by the Landau Specialist Clinic are designed to help you live drug-free and regain some freedom. In addition, we offer you a rehabilitation measure tailored to your needs, consisting of medical measures, addiction and psychotherapeutic support in group and individual sessions as well as occupational measures in occupational therapy. Withdrawal treatment can, if necessary, precede the withdrawal treatment.

Thanks to its location not far from the city center, the Landau specialist clinic is well connected to local public transport and all municipal facilities.

"We'restayinghome"? We stay at the Landau specialist clinic!

As a clinic for the medical rehabilitation of people with addictions, we take our tasks very seriously, especially in the current situation. Anyone who works in our field knows that stressful and stressful situations in particular are often the trigger for relapses. The corona crisis significantly increases the risk of relapse even for those who have successfully managed to stay clean to this day. "I used to fall over and relapse in such stressful situations," says Murat, who until a few weeks ago tried to "alleviate" stress by consuming cannabis. “That I'm here now is very important to me.” In order to be able to support our rehabilitation patients as needed, we are maintaining the therapeutic offer of the specialist clinic as always “before Corona”.

At the same time, we are of course aware that our rehabilitation candidates belong to the high-risk group. We have therefore taken every possible precaution to minimize the risk of infection with the coronavirus. In some places this is directly visible, e.g. B. when eating: The tables have been rearranged so that the minimum distance can be maintained, and there are fewer rehabilitants in the dining room at the same time. The therapeutic group offers also take place with a reduced group size. At other points, we do everything in the "background" to prevent our rehabilitants and employees from becoming infected. For example, admission is only possible with a doctor's confirmation that the new rehabilitation candidate has come to us from a two-week quarantine or directly from the detoxification clinic and is symptom-free.

“At first I was insecure,” says Klaus. “But then I realized that I don't have to worry. I think everything that can be done to prevent people from getting infected has happened. I feel pretty safe here. ”Many of our rehabilitation candidates feel like Klaus. Many - especially those at risk of homelessness - express a degree of gratitude. They are aware that they move within a protected framework, while at the same time they have opportunities that they would not have “outside”. Because our individual and group therapeutic measures will continue to be flanked by sports and exercise offers or the possibility of exits for two, e.g. in the inner city, which is within walking distance.

Our entire rehabilitation team supports the rehabilitation patients with full commitment in all matters and is also at their side in the event of uncertainty, tension and anger. “The employees themselves are in a special situation. Nevertheless, they are always there for us, ”says Murat. This also helps to catch those who are frustrated, for example because they cannot drive home due to the requirements of infection protection. And yet - overall, there is a great understanding of the necessity of the measures among rehabilitation patients and employees alike.

We are all convinced that it is important now for our rehabilitation patients that we continue. Would the offer of the specialist clinic Landau z. B. be omitted due to a stop in admission, many people with the corresponding need would "fall down behind"; many would not know where to go and would be endangered in every way. In this sense, rehabilitation with us offers our rehabilitation patients the chance to get through the corona crisis healthy.
