If you are affected by serious substance problems, drug rehab will help you recover.
Rehab provides crucial assistance for people who abuse street drugs.
It also provides the same assistance for people who abuse prescription medications.
Our drug rehab works because we offer individualized care for all participants.
At Pathfinders Recovery Center we use proven treatment options backed by science and research.
Even people with severe drug problems can recover with help from experienced professionals like ours.
Some people in drug rehab have symptoms of drug addiction.
Others have symptoms of damaging, non-addicted drug abuse.
In many cases, the symptoms of addiction and abuse do not overlap. However, it is quite common to show signs of both types of problems.
This helps explain why all cases of addiction and serious abuse qualify as forms of substance use disorder (SUD).
There are SUD subcategories for every major class of street and prescription drugs.
People diagnosed with SUDs can get help from various types of rehabs. The available options are:
You will progress to each level with our help.
Medical detox is for anyone in rehab who experiences life-threatening health problems. These problems may include severe symptoms of drug withdrawal.
You only stay in medical detox for as long as you need advanced care.
Residential rehab programs like ours provide comprehensive treatment day and night.
These live-in programs are often viewed as the gold standard for effective care. In most cases, people in inpatient care have moderate or severe drug problems.
Intensive outpatient programs and PHPs do not require you to stay in one of our houses while you recover.
However, you will receive more treatment than the average outpatient client. Unlike people in IOPs, people in PHPs have unresolved problems with underlying health issues.
Such problems can include both physical and mental illnesses. People in standard outpatient care also stay at home and make visits to their treatment center.
As a rule, outpatient programs are for those with milder SUDs. Most of these programs require you to receive treatment for less than nine hours a week.
There are two main parts to drug rehab: detox and primary treatment. In detox (detoxification), you undergo a complete health assessment.
In addition, you stop your uncontrolled use of street drugs and/or prescription medications. If you’re addicted to a drug or medication, you will almost surely develop withdrawal symptoms after you quit.
Detox helps you cope with these symptoms and any other withdrawal complications. Doctors and other professionals oversee all reputable detox programs.
These experts are essential to protecting your health as you go through withdrawal. With their help, you can withstand mild, moderate or even severe withdrawal symptoms.
Doctors often rely on medications to help people withdrawing from opioid substances. They do the same for people withdrawing from benzodiazepine sedatives.
If you’re detoxing from opioids, the medication options include methadone and buprenorphine. Both of these substances also belong to the opioid family.
However, when given under strict guidelines, they can help ease the effects of withdrawal.
If you are detoxing from benzodiazepines, your doctor may prescribe the medication diazepam (Valium). Diazepam is itself a benzodiazepine.
When given in specific doses, it can stabilize you as you go through the withdrawal process.
In addition to supporting you during withdrawal, detox gets you ready to continue to your primary addiction treatment program.
During primary treatment, you receive assistance designed to help you remain drug-free.
If you have problems related to opioid use, your treatment plan may include medication. Naltrexone is the option of choice if you no longer have opioids in your system.
The medication acts as an opioid kill switch inside your brain. Its blocking effect means you physically cannot get high while using it.
There are no proven medications available for primary treatment of other SUDs. Instead, drug rehab centers rely on a type of talk psychotherapy known as behavioral therapy.
Behavioral therapy can support your sobriety in a number of ways. Its benefits include:
Types of behavioral therapy used to support recovery from drug problems include:
You will probably participate in two or more forms of therapy while enrolled in treatment. People recovering from opioid problems also receive help through behavioral therapy.
Drug rehab is for anyone who has a drug-related SUD. The level of care you need depends on the severity of your symptoms.
If you have a mild SUD, an outpatient program may suffice. However, inpatient programs provide the best environment for monitored drug treatment.
People with drug problems have increased risks for mental illness.
At the same time, people affected by mental illness have increased risks for drug problems.
If you suffer from these overlapping issues, your drug rehab plan must also include mental health treatment.
Inpatient programs are ideal for this kind of elevated treatment need. We offer several programs to help with drug addiction and mental health:
It can take anywhere from a month to a year (or even longer) to complete drug rehab.
Why such a wide time frame? Because all cases are different and your needs may not be the same as those of other people.
We offer programs to help with the most dangerous and addictive drugs including:
The average stay in rehab is from 30 to 90 days. The cost of drug rehab is also different for different people.
The amount you spend will depend on two main factors:
Your plan will not be the same as the person next to you.
We will work with you or your insurance company to meet your goals within the budget you have. If your insurance will not cover all of your expenses, we can develop a payment plan for you.
We will work with you to get the help you need.
Drug rehab is for anyone who suffers from drug addiction or non-addicted abuse.
That’s true, in part, because addiction and abuse often overlap. Rehab at Pathfinders comes in many forms, including inpatient care and outpatient care.
While outpatient programs have proven benefits, inpatient programs provide the most thorough treatment available. Medication is used to help people detoxing from benzodiazepines and opioids.
You may also receive medication during primary opioid treatment. Still, behavioral therapy forms the core of our drug rehab programs. It usually takes about one to three months to complete treatment.
Depending on your situation some programs will last for a year or more.
