Whats the difference between treatment and rehabilitation?
Drug treatment and drug rehabilitation are often used interchangeably, however they can actually have very different meanings. To treat something is only to address the symptoms, so facilities that treat addiction often only use drug replacement therapy and offer counseling, but don’t offer permanent solutions to solving the problem once and for all. Rehabilitation means to restore the person to the way they were, or better, than before they ever started using alcohol or other drugs. A true rehabilitation program will help someone put addiction behind them forever.
Treatment is aimed at eliminating or reducing the display of the disease. The concept of rehabilitation of the sick and disabled is that rehab centers with the coordination of medical, psychological, social measures should restore physical, psychological, social status of the maximum number of people after major operations, injuries, serious diseases so that, if possible, to avoid disability or have the least degree of disability, to be integrated into society.
