WHAT IS TREATMENT? 

TREATMENT IS USED TO TREAT DRUG ADDICTION BY PROVIDING SUPPORT, RESOURCES AND INFORMATION. THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT KINDS OF TREATMENT OPTIONS, BUT THEY ALL HAVE THE SAME END GOAL; TO HELP YOU GET SOBER AND GET YOUR LIFE BACK ON TRACK.

TREATMENT IS HEAVILY AVOIDED BECAUSE OF THE IMPACT IT WOULD HAVE ON YOUR DAILY LIFE, LIKE WORK, SPENDING TIME WITH YOUR KIDS, TAKING UP ALL YOUR FREE TIME, ETC. BUT YOU MUST REMEMBER RECOVERY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANYTHING. 

YOU CANNOT SUCCEED IN STAYING SOBER IF YOU HAVE A BUNCH OF OUTSIDE DISTRACTIONS AND STRESSFUL THINGS GOING ON, YOUR FOCUS NEEDS TO BE ON RECOVERY AND GETTING SOBER.

IN THE LONG RUN, USING WILL CAUSE A LOT MORE PROBLEMS IN THE LONG RUN THAN TREATMENT WOULD. 

 

DIFFERENT TYPES OF TREATMENT

THERE ARE MANY KINDS OF TREATMENT FOR MANY REASONS. ESPECIALLY BECAUSE TWO PEOPLE ARE NOT ALIKE, SO ONE METHOD MAY WORK FOR ONE PERSON AND NOT WORK FOR THE OTHER. 

EACH TREATMENT CENTER HAS THEIR OWN APPROACH WITH HOW THEY GO ABOUT THINGS, WHETHER THAT BE YOGA & MEDITATION THERAPY, OR THE 12-STEP PROGRAM. BEFORE YOU GO TO A FACILITY YOU'LL KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THEY HAVE TO OFFER.

WITH ADDICTION COMES MENTAL ILLNESSES AS WELL. IF YOU FEEL YOU NEED HELP FOR MORE THAN JUST ADDICTION, LOOK INTO A TREATMENT PLACE THAT OFFERS DUAL DIAGNOSIS.

ONLY 10% OF REHABS / TREATMENT CENTERS OFFER DUAL DIAGNOSIS, SO MAKE SURE THEY HAVE IT IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN DOING A DUAL DIAGNOSIS PROGRAM.

INPATIENT TREATMENT

INPATIENT TREATMENT IS A RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT FACILITY WHERE YOU STAY OVERNIGHT FROM 1 WEEK - 1 MONTH. THIS KIND OF TREATMENT IS RECOMMENDED FOR ADDICTS WITH SERIOUS MENTAL DISORDERS OR MEDICAL PROBLEMS SINCE THEY'RE ABLE TO PROVIDE AROUND THE CLOCK CARE.

SOBER-LIVING TREATMENT IS NORMALLY USED TO TRANSITION FROM INPATIENT TREATMENT TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD. ALTHOUGH THEY DON'T GET MUCH ACTUAL "TREATMENT", IT IS UTILIZED TO HELP PEOPLE OUT WITHOUT THROWING THEM ON THE STREET RIGHT AWAY. MOST SOBER-LIVING FACILITIES OFFER NA MEETINGS OR SOME SORT OF HELP WITH THE 12-STEPS.

OUTPATIENT TREATMENT ALLOWS YOU TO GO HOME AT NIGHT AND PLAN IT AROUND YOUR SCHEDULES SINCE IT'S MORE FLEXIBLE THAN INPATIENT. OUTPATIENT CAN BE ANYWHERE FROM A FEW NIGHTS A WEEK FOR A COUPLE HOURS EACH, OR IT CAN BE DAILY FOR 6-8 HOURS A DAY. IT ALL DEPENDS ON WHAT LEVEL OF CARE YOU NEED. THIS CAN LAST ANYWHERE FROM 4 WEEKS - 12 WEEKS.

OPIOID TREATMENT PROGRAM IS SPECIFICALLY TREATMENT FOR THOSE WHO ARE QUITTING SUBSTANCES LIKE HEROIN, VICODIN, OXYCONTIN, AND ANY PAIN MEDICATION. SINCE THERE IS MEDICATIONS THAT CAN HELP COMING OFF OF THE DRUGS, LIKE SUBOXONE AND METHADONE, NURSES AND DOCTORS WANT TO MONITOR YOU 24/7.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT REHAB FOR ME

RANDOMLY PICKING A REHAB FACILITY WITHOUT LOOKING AT WHAT IT OFFERS LETS YOU RUN THE RISK OF IT NOT HELPING YOU AT ALL. WITH ALL THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF TREATMENT PLACES AND ALL DIFFERENT STYLES, IT'S MADE THAT WAY SO THAT IT'S MORE INDIVIDUALIZED TO YOU AND YOUR PREFERENCES / NEEDS.
