Rehab is so important for most people who are battling addictions. Fortunately, Washington offers many options to those who need a higher level of care. Even though both AA and NA meetings can be effective in some cases, they are not right for everyone. This is particularly true for those who have never had any type of treatment before. Quite often, they find that they need to begin by going to rehab.
While it does depend on the type of addiction a person suffers from, some people may need to begin by attending a detox program. There are certain substances that require them to go through the detoxification process prior to rehab. For example, people who are addicted to alcohol, opioids/opiates, stimulants and benzodiazepines typically need to detox. Otherwise, they run the risk of complications as they recover.
During rehab, people have the opportunity to address the psychological aspect of their addictions. They learn why they became addicted and how to live their lives without being reliant upon a substance.
According to the SAMHSA treatment locator tool, there are hundreds of different options available for rehab in WA. These programs are all very different, and they include inpatient treatment programs , long-term rehabs, counselors, outpatient programs and more.
For those who live in Washington State, there are many possibilities available. It is important to take the time to consider whether going to rehab might be the best option to begin recovering from addiction.
People often get stuck on deciding which would be better for them; an inpatient program or an outpatient one. The reality is that both can be effective; it just depends on what that individual person needs to recover.
Inpatient programs are great for those who need a higher level of care during recovery. They may be at a higher risk for relapsing and need the additional support. But many outpatient programs are designed to offer a lot of support too, and some people need their added flexibility.
At Ashwood Recovery, we offer an excellent outpatient treatment program that is targeted to meet our clients’ needs. Our services include a more traditional outpatient setting, intensive outpatient treatment and partial hospitalization.
There are times when an inpatient program is essential for recovery. In cases like these, we always recommend Northpoint Recovery, which is located in Boise.
At Northpoint Recovery, they offer treatment for alcoholism, as well as a high quality drug rehab program. Their services are excellent, and they always help their patients transition into outpatient care once they have completed their program.
