Choosing to go to Drug and Alcohol Treatment

For many people, attending AA or NA meetings is not the answer they are looking for. These individuals need to start recovering by getting professional treatment first. That is why we want to make sure to include information about the various rehab options that are available in the Emmett area.

People can choose from several different types of treatment programs. For many, inpatient rehab is the best option because they need a higher level of care. There are also those who might need long-term care in a residential facility such as a sober living home.

Most people will do quite well in an outpatient program, and for them, this is the best choice. We will talk in more detail about this type of rehab in just a moment.

There are several drugs that require detox prior to starting any type of rehab. This means that they cause withdrawal symptoms that may not only be physically and mentally painful, but they can also be dangerous.

For example, alcoholics will be required to go through alcohol detox. This permits them to obtain specialized treatment for their withdrawal symptoms. The same is true for those who are addicted to benzodiazepines, stimulants and many opioids.

The detoxification process can be lengthy, but it is often essential. It can help people avoid possible complications and give them a much easier recovery. It also has been linked to better long-term outcomes as well.

After detoxing, people are ready to move on to a high quality rehab center. During rehab, they will spend their time focusing on relearning how to live their lives without being reliant upon drugs or alcohol. They will work in various types of therapy settings to work through the issues that may have led to their substance abuse problems.

It is important to understand that many addictions are caused because of co-occurring disorders. That means that so many people suffer from mental health issues, and they use substances as a way to self-medicate their symptoms.

During rehab, co-occurring disorders should be diagnosed and treated. This will help the individual to avoid relapsing because the issue that led to their drug or alcohol use has been addressed.

The Benefits of Outpatient Treatment

There are so many benefits to attending an outpatient rehab program. They include:

  • Having a flexible schedule where treatment easily fits in.
  • Being able to continue to live at home.
  • Being able to continue going to work or school.
  • Effective treatment that mirrors what can be found in many inpatient programs.
  • Being able to quickly apply everything that is learned in treatment to their everyday lives.

At Ashwood Recovery, our outpatient program consists of various levels of care. People can choose intensive outpatient treatment, partial hospitalization, or they can opt for our traditional outpatient program.
