How Sand Springs Addiction Treatment Programs Work
The two types of addiction treatment programs are inpatient and outpatient. Both involve the assistance and care of medical professionals, but the inpatient program requires the patient to live within the facility, while the outpatient program allows the patient to still live at home or be with family if desired. Methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine and prescription drugs all present their own challenges and withdrawal symptoms, meaning each will require a different treatment approach, especially when medications are involved, so it is important to have a proper consultation before choosing a treatment program.
Medication is used at many substance use disorder recovery facilities, and will be a common part of treatment in a Sand Springs drug detox program. This can help patients handle their withdrawal symptoms during detox and mitigate cravings as they progress. Medication is not always used during the recovery process though, and when used, a medical professional makes certain that it is non-addictive.
Therapy is another popular treatment. It involves the individual working with a counselor to understand why they used drugs in the first place, while learning to develop their own coping mechanisms to avoid turning back to drugs in the future. Many different types of addiction therapy are used at treatment centers. Group and individual therapy sessions are common, along with therapy sessions that involve activities such as music, arts and craft, and outdoor activities. Sometimes family members are invited to attend to support the process.
Going to Sand Springs Intensive Outpatient Addiction Treatment
Not every person can put their life on hold for weeks or months at a time to complete a Sand Springs drug detox program and live at an inpatient facility. This often isn’t possible for people with jobs or families. An outpatient program provides an alternative for those individuals.
The initial portion of the outpatient addiction treatment is the intensive portion, and this will involve the longest and most frequent meetings. The patient will visit the facility and receive treatment in the form of addiction therapy. They may also receive medication to help them reduce withdrawal symptoms. As the patient progresses, treatment will become shorter and less frequent, but will still help in sustaining their drug-free lifestyle.
Living at a Sand Springs Inpatient Drug Rehab
For individuals who use drugs frequently and need to go through detox, it’s normal to enter an inpatient program. Sand Springs inpatient drug detox centers are equipped to give patients 24/7 support through the detox process, before they transition to an outpatient program. There are also inpatient programs that continue for weeks or months after the person detoxes.
Inpatient drug rehab gives everyone a secure environment away from the everyday distractions. While living there, they will receive addiction therapy and medication if necessary. If a patient needs help, a medical professional is available to help at any given moment.
After an individual who needs help makes that first call, it’s important to place them in the proper program for their unique needs. Our addiction specialists will consider the individual’s specific needs based on their history and lifestyle, along with any previous treatments the individual has gone through. An inpatient program may be the best fit if someone has already tried an outpatient program and have not been successful.
