    Lake Havasu City Residential Treatment Programs

    The residential treatment program is also sometimes called the inpatient treatment program or the retreat-based treatment program.

They will stay in the facility overnight.

    The partial hospitalization program (PHP) is very similar to the residential program. It will involve the same activities like therapy and classes, and medical care will be provided to patients while they are in the facility. However, they will go home at night or to housing that is provided by the facility.

  • Connector.

    Lake Havasu City Outpatient Treatment Programs

    The most flexible treatment option is the outpatient treatment program. Patients will participate in therapy, classes and other activities for 10 to 15 hours during the week and the rest of the time, they will stay at home or in housing provided by the facility.

When considering treatment facilities, it is wise to consider a trusted national brand of rehabilitation centers like The Recovery Village. At The Recovery Village, the most experienced addiction professionals are on staff to provide patients with a full assessment and to formulate an effective individualized treatment plan. Any patient that wants to will be able to seek effective treatment at such facilities.

Lake Havasu City Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

Detox isn’t a fun activity for anyone. Some substances – like marijuana or cocaine – have little to no withdrawal symptoms. The withdrawal symptoms for substances like alcohol will depend on how the patient has been using it. Other substances – like opiates or benzodiazepines – can have severe, dangerous and even deadly withdrawal symptoms. Detox centers provide patients with medical assistance throughout the detox process.

A detox center lacks in the fact that it doesn’t offer treatment programs for complete treatment. If you only detox and you don’t begin a treatment program, it’s almost guaranteed that you will relapse because you haven’t treated the real core of the addiction. While a detox center can be beneficial, it’s more beneficial to have the convenience of a facility like The Recovery Village that offers detox as well as treatment programs.

Recovery Meetings Near You in Lake Havasu City

The majority of your recovery will actually take place after your treatment program, which is why groups like SMART Recovery or Narcotics Anonymous are so critical. Luckily, there are many meetings for citizens of Lake Havasu City.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is an international, non-profit group that has been helping millions of people to stay sober all over the world since 1935. AA meetings are typically held in community centers, churches and clubhouses, and meetings typically involve an honest and open discussion from members that are leaning on each other for support and strength. AA is the original 12-step program, and though it has a spiritual basis, it doesn’t subscribe to any particular religion. Here are the AA meetings in Lake Havasu City.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Alcoholics Anonymous was founded in 1935, and almost 20 years later, there was a noticeable need for a 12-step program that was dedicated to those who were addicted to harder substances. In 1953 as an answer to this demand, Narcotics Anonymous was started. NA meetings are very similar to AA meetings; both groups use the same 12 steps, both groups encourage sponsorship (or mentorship), both groups meet regularly to have open and honest discussions and both groups only require a desire to stop drinking or use drugs from their members. Here is an option for an NA meeting in Lake Havasu City.

    35 Acoma Blvd. S.
    Lake Havasu City, AZ 86403

SMART Recovery Meetings

SMART Recovery is a much newer recovery group as it was founded in 1994. It has grown into the largest recovery group that offers an alternative to the 12 steps. SMART Recovery is a little different in that it offers a 4-point program, it doesn’t do sponsorship, it focuses on self-reliance and the meetings are more of a group conversation as opposed to one person sharing to the whole group.

SMART Recovery discourages labels like “addict” and “alcoholic” and thinks of addiction as more of a series of destructive behaviors as opposed to a disease that needs to be treated. Here is a meeting in Lake Havasu City.
