Tempe Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Substance abuse is contributing to a nation-wide epidemic that is affecting the whole country. This epidemic is affecting adults and teenagers alike. In 2014, it was reported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration that 1 in every 12 teens or 5 percent of the entire adolescent population in America has a substance use disorder. This is about 1.3 million teenagers.

Arizona has felt the effects of this very deeply although it affects the entire United States of America. Heroin and other opiates are a significant problem for all of Arizona. For example, in 2007, heroin was responsible for 11 percent of the fatalities that were related to opioid overdoses. It was responsible for 39 percent of these deaths in 2016. This is even affecting towns like Tempe.

Fortunately, for those who want to seek treatment for their substance abuse issues, it is never too late to ask for the help you deserve.

Finding Help & Recovery in Tempe, AZ

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Tempe, Arizona

Different patients need different levels of treatment depending on a number of factors. What kind of substance are you addicted to? Are you likely to relapse? Have you ever been treated for addiction before? Do you have access to a stable living situation or do you need more structure? These are all important things to consider when you are thinking about treatment programs for you.

Tempe Residential Treatment Programs

A residential treatment program offers 24/7 medical access, therapy, classes, healing activities and a facility in which to stay. Patients are considered inpatient, and this is often the most successful program for patients with severe addictions.

Tempe Partial Hospitalization Programs

A partial hospitalization program offers medical access while patients are on the facility’s campus for 6 to 8 hours during the day, therapy, classes, healing activities and a facility in which to receive care. It is often successful for patients with less severe addictions or patients who have already completed a residential treatment program.

Tempe Outpatient Treatment Programs

An outpatient treatment program offers medical access while patients are on the facility’s campus for 10 to 20 hours during the week, therapy, classes, healing activities and a facility in which to receive care. It is often successful for patients with the least severe addictions or patients who have already completed a residential treatment program or PHP.

Realizing the best environment for you to receive healing in will be a big part of finding the ideal treatment center. Many patients choose national treatment centers because they provide them with space and distance away from their normal environments as well as the most experienced counselors and healthcare professionals.

Tempe Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

Removing substances from your body is the first stage in recovery. For some substances – like marijuana or hallucinogens – this is a relatively simple process. All you have to do is stop using the substance. For other substances – like opiates or benzodiazepines – there are severe withdrawal symptoms. For these substances, the detox process may require medical supervision. Many people choose the medical assistance available at a detox center for this reason.

Detox, however important, is only the initial step in a long recovery journey. It is imperative that the detox process be followed with an in-depth treatment program that features cognitive behavioral therapy, courses and other healing activities. Instead of attending a detox center and then enrolling at a treatment program at a different facility, many patients find it more convenient to complete a detox program and a treatment program at the same facility.

Recovery Meetings Near You in Tempe

Aftercare is going to be the phase of your recovery that you will be in the longest. This is the stage after the treatment program is over. Any good aftercare plan will involve regular meetings with a group like Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.

People who have alcohol addiction have been helped by the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous for over 80 years. Currently, there are over 100,000 groups that are meeting in over 170 countries.

Founded in Akron, Ohio by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith, Alcoholics Anonymous is famous for reciting the Serenity prayer at the beginning or the end of a meeting: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.” Here are three meetings in Tempe, Arizona.
