Rehab, or "rehabilitation," is any form of treatment
or therapy for people who abuse substances; rehab
can refer to a broad range of approaches used to
treat a variety of emotional and physical problems.
At The Safe Care Trust International, our
rehabilitation programs help people cope with their
problems and address the issues behind their
addictions. We work to resolve root problems and end
the resulting behaviors, whether sex addiction,
eating disorders, drug and alcohol addiction, or
In addition to treating addictions, we also have
programs to treat depression, anxiety, mood
disorders or any other behavioral problem.
If you cannot manage or control your life because of
an addiction or compulsive behavior, you need rehab
or treatment. Problem behaviors persist even when
addicts are aware of the negative effects of their
addiction on their jobs, relationships and health.
When a person starts to show signs of addiction, it
is best to contact a professional counselor,
psychologist, psychiatrist or addiction specialist
who can better assess the situation.
Detox, or detoxification, is the clearing of toxins
or harmful substances from the body. A detox may be
done by taking supplements or drinking liquids that
are made specifically for detoxification, fasting
and eating prescribed foods. This flushing of toxins
is vital for an individual's health and stability.
While detox may be uncomfortable and difficult,
there are ways to lessen the physical pain. Detox
can be dangerous if not managed by a qualified
medical practitioner. Detox addresses the physical
issues that come with addiction. Once a patient
undergoes detox from alcohol or drugs, they are then
ready to begin the psychological journey to
recovery.Different addictions call for different
treatments. In order to find out what is best for
your loved one, discuss your situation with a
qualified healthcare professional, such as a
therapist, addictions counselor, psychiatrist or
doctor. Ask for a referral to a reliable treatment
To ensure that treatment is successful, most rehab
facilities don't allow patients to leave unless
accompanied by staff. In most cases, facilities are
unlocked, however locked facilities do exist for
patients who need to be secured (those who try to
escape, become hostile, threaten the safety of staff
or other patients, etc.).
When you undergo rehab, it's important to stay for
the duration of the treatment. Detox may be included
if you are addicted to substances or if you display
compulsive behaviors. A typical rehab program lasts
anywhere from 28 to 35 days, depending on the
SCTI Inpatient treatment program provides care 24
hours a day. Sometimes, it is better to be taken out
of your home environment in order to focus on
recovery. After an extensive evaluation, a group of
therapists, counselors and psychologists come up
with a unique, personalized treatment plan. The
treatment plan is based on the patient's diagnoses,
interests and personality, and usually consists of
group meetings and 12-step programs along with
specific therapies such as Expressive Arts or Equine
If you aren’t showing any progress in an outpatient
program, or if it becomes unsafe to be in
outpatient, you should be admitted to an inpatient
facility. If your addiction or issue is more severe,
or if you need to undergo detox, it is recommended
that you be admitted in an inpatient program.
The following are common observable symptoms of
addiction which shows the underlying change in brain
and other body parts:
• The need to continue or increase use of the
substance in order to achieve the desired effect.
• Experiencing withdrawal when you don’t get the
substance often enough.
• Focusing your social life or work life around
using the substance.
• Extreme mood changes: finding yourself
experiencing extreme happiness, sadness or anxiety.
• Sleeping noticeably more or less than usual -
usually at abnormal times of the day or night.
• Experiencing changes in your energy level.
• Extreme weight loss or gain.
• You find yourself lying to cover up your substance
• You find yourself stealing the substance to use,
or money to buy the substance.
• General demeanor of secretiveness, being careful
about what you say to friends or family.
Family involvement is crucial for the recovery
process. Most treatment facilities have a set period
of time for the family to come visit and take part
in workshops or lectures. Many times, addiction
stems from issues within the family, so it’s
essential to understand family dynamics and provide
a space for the family to communicate and heal. Not
only does this heal the patient, but it brings
freedom and peace for the rest of the family.

After admission, a family meeting is allowed after
28 days; after that, family members can meet the
patient after 15 days on scheduled.
No one can use any drug or cigarette during his

Doctors are available 24 hrs 7 days a week in Safe
Care Trust, so in case of medical emergency we could
shift the patient into PIMS, Shifa International,
Poly Clinic and other private hospitals.
Most addictions, no matter what kind, have no
definite “cure” - only ongoing recovery. At The SCTI,
we base our reputable success rate on three factors:
the number of alumni who recommend our program to
friends and relatives, the number of referrals we
get from other treatment facilities, and the number
of patients referred to us by therapists and other
medical practitioners (especially those who have
been working with us).
