Knowledge is power. And this has never been truer than in substance abuse rehabilitation where education has the ability to prevent and overturn futures.
This is because substance abuse education can provide patients the tools to avoid, stop, and/or get help for their substance abuse disorder. And apart from being a preventive measure, continuous substance use education can also help patients stay on track as well as provide the knowledge necessary to get back on living an addiction-free life.
This fact is something that we always make sure to inform our patients as a provider of the very service ourselves as part of our PRP programs in Maryland at PRP Learning Center of Baltimore.
So why should substance abuse education be prioritized in their psychiatric recovery in Maryland? Here are the specific reasons why:
- Identify the warning signs of addiction.
- Know the effects of substance abuse on the mind and body as well as its consequences to their relationships.
- Educate and train the family and those within the immediate circle of the patient how to deal and be supportive with their loved one with the addiction.
- Prepare their family and loved ones with the possible outcomes of their rehabilitation services in Maryland or elsewhere.
That said, this is not enough, ensuring that the substance abuse education they receive is research-based and proper implementation is necessary. This is because having accurate information that is also actionable and is delivered understandably, is the most effective way to drive down education.
