Yuma Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Substance abuse is affecting the entire United States of America in destructive ways. This disease is negatively affecting both adults and teenagers. Of the entire adolescent population in America, 5 percent have substance use disorder as reported in 2014 by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). This is about 1.3 million teenagers or 1 in 12 teens.

Arizona has taken a hard hit from this epidemic although it does affect all of America. Heroin and other opiates continue to do quite a bit of damage to the citizens of Arizona. For instance, in 2016, heroin was responsible for 11 percent of all fatalities related to opioids in Arizona. This is increased from 11 percent in 2007. Cities like Yuma are even feeling the effects of this.

Fortunately, for individuals who are ready to seek treatment for their substance abuse issues, there are many options that are available.

Finding Help & Recovery in Yuma, AZ

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Yuma, Arizona

When you are considering the treatment program that you will need at a rehabilitation facility, it’s important to develop a comprehensive understanding of what you can expect from each treatment program. Most treatment centers offer outpatient treatment, partial hospitalization and residential treatment.

Yuma Residential Treatment Programs

Residential treatment is meant for those patients who don’t currently have a stable or safe living situation, patients who have the most severe addictions, patients who require detox beforehand or patients who need access to 24/7 medical supervision.

Yuma Partial Hospitalization Programs

Partial hospitalization is meant for those patients who need the same type of treatment offered in residential treatment but do have access to a safe living situation, patients who have slightly less severe addictions, patients who don’t require detox or patients who only need medical supervision while they are there during the day.

Yuma Outpatient Treatment Programs

Outpatient treatment is meant for those patients who don’t need as intensive care as PHP or residential patients and also have access to a reliable and safe living space, patients who have more moderate addictions or patients who only need medical supervision while they are there for 10 to 20 hours during the week.

Sometimes the most effective way to receive treatment is to begin with detox, progress to a residential treatment program, progress to a partial hospitalization program and then progress to an outpatient program.

Yuma Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

If your body is dependent on alcohol or opiates and you stop using them, there may be severe withdrawal symptoms that require medically assisted detox before a treatment program can be started. This is why detox centers can come in handy.

Many patients understand, though, that detox centers are lacking because they don’t offer treatment programs. If you detox without receiving treatment, it’s a little like going on a diet and then going right back to unhealthy eating after you’ve lost weight. You will quickly slip back into an unhealthy body. There are many emotional and mental components to addiction that must be addressed.
