Sierra Vista Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Most people think of attractions like the San Pedro House and Fort Huachuca when they think of Sierra Vista, Arizona. Sierra Vista is a lovely city, but there is something sinister affecting many of its residents: the epidemic of substance abuse. Drug and alcohol addiction is affecting many people throughout Arizona. Did you know that there were 790 deaths related to opiate overdoses in 2016? This is truly a significant issue.

This is a drastic problem for the United States. Each day, there are 91 fatalities across the country because of opioid overdoses. This is affecting the lives of millions of people. But the problem must be solved on an individual level. If you are currently suffering from a substance use disorder, it is imperative that you seek treatment as soon as possible.

Finding Help & Recovery in Sierra Vista, AZ

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Sierra Vista, Arizona

The stigma associated with drug and alcohol addiction can often prevent individuals who need treatment from seeking it. The legal consequences and criminalization of many illicit substances make it even more difficult. However, substance use disorder is a disease that needs to be treated by enrolling in a treatment program at a rehabilitation center. Most rehabilitation facilities will offer the following treatment programs:

Sierra Vista Residential Treatment Programs

Also sometimes called inpatient treatment programs or retreat-based treatment programs, residential treatment programs require the patients to remain in the facility 24 hours a day throughout the duration of the program. Typically, these programs are the most successful. They are even more successful when patients are able to progress to other levels of treatment after completing the residential program.

Sierra Vista Partial Hospitalization Programs

Also called “dayhab” at times, PHPs are very similar to residential treatment programs. Patients are only in the facility during the day, however, and they are permitted to go back to their homes at night. If they don’t have access to a stable or supportive living space, there may be housing available on site.

Sierra Vista Outpatient Treatment Programs

The most flexible and convenient treatment option is the outpatient treatment program, which only requires patients to be at the facility for 10 to 20 hours during the week, usually for only two to four days. This program should only be for those who have a milder addiction or those who have already completed an inpatient treatment program or partial hospitalization.

It can be complicated to understand the best treatment program for you. National treatment centers are equipped with the best addiction specialists who will sit down with you to assess your circumstances and formulate an individualized treatment plan from detox to aftercare.

Sierra Vista Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

People think of popular images from movies and TV shows when they think of detox. Detox is thought of as an uncomfortable and painful process. The medical field has advanced, however, and medical supervision that is available at a detox center makes this process bearable.

While detox is important and detox centers can be helpful for this reason, it is better to find a national treatment center that is available where you can go through detox with medical assistance just as you would at a detox center. After you have finished detox, however, you can start a treatment program that will be essential to your long-term recovery.

If you only detox but you do nothing to treat the psychological and emotional roots of your substance misuse, you may have a setback shortly after you have detoxed. You must treat the cause of the addiction, and that can only be done in a treatment program.

Recovery Meetings Near You in Sierra Vista

Aftercare will involve the majority of your recovery. A treatment program can last weeks or months, but attending recovery meetings in an organization like SMART Recovery or Narcotics Anonymous will hopefully be something you will do for years to come. There are several options for meetings in Sierra Vista.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

The international non-profit organization that is for people who are addicted to alcohol is called Alcoholics Anonymous. Founded in 1935 by Dr. Bob Smith and Bill Wilson in Akron, Ohio, it was originally based on a Christian program that involved 7 steps. Bill and Dr. Bob wanted to expand the program out to span across religions and belief systems, though it continues to be spiritually based. It operates based on the 12 steps that ask members to look to a higher power. Here are the AA meetings in Sierra Vista.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Similar to Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous is a 12-step program that is dedicated to those who are addicted to harder substances. Narcotics Anonymous also recognizes that alcohol is a drug. Many people who have substance use disorder have both alcohol and drug addiction and will attend both NA and AA meetings. There are some small differences; for example, AA gives out chips to mark time in sobriety where NA gives out keychains. However, at the core, NA and AA are quite similar. Here are a few NA meetings in Sierra Vista.
