Finding Help & Recovery in Apache Junction, AZ

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Apache Junction, AZ

Substance use disorder is a prominent issue for Apache Junction residents. Fortunately, there are many drug and alcohol rehab centers in the state of Arizona that make it possible for you to get the help you need. The first thing you need to do if you want to seek treatment for you drug or alcohol addiction is to seek out more information on the treatment programs that are available.

Apache Junction Residential Treatment Programs

Also called inpatient treatment programs, residential treatment programs offer the most intensive care for patients. In this program, patients will have access to counselors, doctors and nurses, and they will be asked to stay in the facility overnight. During the day, they will participate in a rehabilitation curriculum.

Apache Junction Partial Hospitalization Programs

Also sometimes called a “dayhab”, a partial hospitalization program is a level down from residential treatment. For 6 to 8 hours a day, patients will do everything inpatients do, but they will then be permitted to go home at night, assuming they have a stable place to live and are not at high risk for relapse.

Apache Junction Outpatient Treatment Programs

Outpatient treatment is a level down from partial hospitalization programs. In this program, patients only participate in the rehabilitation program for 10 to 15 hours throughout the week. Patients who have successfully finished a partial hospitalization program or an inpatient program often enroll in an outpatient program before transitioning back into their everyday environment.

National treatment centers offer patients the opportunity to pursue high quality treatment. There are many highly qualified addiction specialists on staff who are committed to helping those with substance use disorder to find their own pathway to long-term recovery.

Apache Junction Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

The detoxification may be extremely important, especially if your body has become dependent on substances like ValiumXanaxOxyContinhydrocodone or alcohol. If you attempt to detox on your own, it could go horribly wrong. Detoxing from opiates can produce extremely painful withdrawal symptoms and a sudden detox from benzodiazepines may even be deadly. In a detox center, you will have medical assistance that will help you get through this process and make it bearable.

The disadvantage to a detox center, however, is that they don’t offer treatment programs for the most part. A treatment program is the most critical step in conquering your drug and/or alcohol addiction. Yes, you cannot begin treatment without going through any necessary detox. Instead of opting for a detox center, though, many patients choose a national treatment center where they are able to get the medical assistance that they would at a detox center and then they are able to join a residential program immediately after.
