Finding Help & Recovery in Gilbert, AZ

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Gilbert, Arizona

You have multiple options when you research rehabilitation facilities in the area. Determining which treatment program is going to be the most effective for you is the first step you need to take. It’s absolutely crucial for you to select a treatment program that will be effective. Your current living situation, your financial situation, the substance you are addicted to and your history with addiction will all come into play when you are deciding which treatment program you want to enroll in. Typically, there will be three options.

Gilbert Residential Treatment Programs

Patients have 24/7 monitoring from medical staff in an inpatient or residential treatment program. They will receive intensive rehab treatment throughout the day, and they will live on campus at the facility.

Gilbert Partial Hospitalization Programs

Patients have access to medical care while they are in the facility in a partial hospitalization program (PHP). They will receive intensive rehab treatment throughout the day, and they will be permitted to go home in the evenings.

Gilbert Outpatient Treatment Programs

Patients have access to medical supervision while they are in the facility in an outpatient treatment program. They will receive less intensive rehab treatment throughout the week, and they will only spend 10 to 15 hours per week in the facility.

You may need to pursue one, two or all three of these treatment programs. Some patients progress from inpatient treatment to a partial hospitalization to outpatient treatment and then out into the real world. One of the advantages of national treatment centers is that there are addiction specialists on staff that will spend time assessing your situation and formulating an individualized plan of treatment for you.

Gilbert Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

If you are in need of a detox center, there are several options in Gilbert, Arizona. You might require a medically supervised detoxification if you’re dependent on benzodiazepines like Valium or opiates like OxyContin. Many treatment programs will want you to complete the detox process before you start the treatment program.

It’s important to keep in mind that detox is only the initial stage of rehabilitation. The physical aspects of your substance use disorder are certainly treated at a detox center. However, the real mental and emotional work of recovery will begin in a treatment program. Treatment centers are a great choice for patients that want the convenience of being able to detox in the same facility they will also receive treatment in.
