Nogales Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

America is plagued with the destructive disease of substance abuse. Presently, drug overdoses are causing more deaths in our country than gun violence or car accidents. The greatest health epidemic in America right now is drug and alcohol addiction.

Arizona is affected greatly by drug trafficking, especially since it is along the border with Mexico. Nogales – a border town – is one of the top 10 cities in Arizona for drug arrests. In February of 2016, officers seized 17,000 pounds of marijuana at the border in Nogales, and in January of 2017, agents seized $1.8 million in drugs (methamphetamine and cocaine) at the border in Nogales. Incidents like these show just how much of a problem this has become. The drug trafficking problem would not be so significant, however, if there wasn’t such a demand for these illicit substances. Drug and alcohol addiction is running rampant in the United States.

If you are addicted to drugs or alcohol, it’s imperative that you seek the treatment that you deserve. Addiction is a disease, just like any other, and it needs to be treated.

Finding Help & Recovery in Nogales, AZ

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Nogales, Arizona

Arizona has a number of resources for anyone who struggles with drug or alcohol addiction. After you’ve made a decision to get help, it can be challenging to sift through all of your options to find the best one. The most effective treatment program for you will be largely dependent on the specific substance you are addicted to, your history with addiction and likelihood to relapse and your current living situation. Most rehab centers offer the following treatment programs:

Nogales Residential Treatment Programs

Healthcare professionals and addiction specialists will monitor your progress around the clock in an inpatient or residential treatment program. Usually, this program is the best fit for patients who need to detox before beginning treatment.

Nogales Partial Hospitalization Programs

The next level of treatment is the partial hospitalization program. It typically lasts 6 to 8 hours during the day, and the patients are permitted to go home in the evenings if they have a safe and supportive living situation. Some facilities may also provide on-campus housing for the PHP patients.

Nogales Outpatient Treatment Programs

The next level of treatment is the outpatient treatment program. It usually lasts 10 to 20 hours throughout the week, and it is similar to the PHP. Often, patients in an outpatient treatment program have already completed an inpatient treatment program or a PHP.

While Arizona offers numerous options for treatment centers, it might be smart to consider a national treatment facility. Facilities like these are staffed by the most experienced addiction specialists and medical professionals who are dedicated to helping you begin a path to long-term recovery.

Nogales Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

The first step in treating your drug or alcohol addiction is detoxification. If you are detoxing from substances like marijuana and methamphetamine, this process will be relatively straightforward. You can just stop using the substance, and any withdrawal symptoms will be mostly mental or psychological. With substances like benzodiazepines or opiates, however, there may be an intense period of physical withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms may be medically treated at a detox center.

A detox center will help you get through this process, but it won’t be able to help you treat the root of your addiction. You must enroll in a treatment program to really begin the work of recovery. Many patients find it to be more convenient to attend a national treatment center.
