Finding Help & Recovery in Bullhead City, AZ

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Bullhead City, Arizona

Typically, there are three different rehabilitation programs offered at drug and alcohol rehab centers. Residential treatment, partial hospitalization and outpatient treatment are all options that are available to you. The best thing to do when you are considering a treatment program is to get all of the information on what each program would expect of you.

Bullhead City Residential Treatment Programs

In residential treatment, you will be expected to stay in the facility. The program typically lasts 30, 60 or 90 days, though some facilities have programs that vary in duration. You will be expected to participate in individual counseling, group therapy, healing activities (recreation, exercise, meditation, etc.) and substance misuse courses.

Bullhead City Partial Hospitalization Programs

In a partial hospitalization program, you will be expected to spend 6 to 8 hours a day at the facility. You will also be expected to participate in the same sorts of activities that residential patients participate in (counseling, classes and other healing activities). In the evenings, you will be permitted to go home if you have a safe and stable living environment or go to housing that is provided on campus.

Bullhead City Outpatient Treatment Programs

In outpatient treatment, you will be expected to show up at the facility for 10 to 20 hours a week. Some facilities offer outpatient programs that are 2 to 5 days during the week. During this time, you will also take part in the same healing activities as partial hospitalization patients or residential patients.

Often, a patient will need two or three of these programs in a progression. Transitioning back to normal life can sometimes be difficult and outpatient treatment can ease the transition.

Bullhead City Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

A drug and alcohol detox center can be a great help once you have decided to stop using the addictive substance that your body is currently dependent on. Some substances have greater withdrawal symptoms than other substances when you stop taking them so your detox needs will depend largely on the substance(s) you are currently addicted to, the amount you have been taking and the length of time that you have been taking them. A detox center will offer medical monitoring throughout this process to make it more comfortable.

While detoxing is essential, many patients find detox centers to be lacking due to the fact that they only have detox programs there and don’t offer inpatient or outpatient treatment programs. It’s critical to do the mental, psychological and emotional work that a treatment program requires you to do if you want to beat your drug or alcohol addiction.
