Finding Help & Recovery in Hot Springs, AR

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Hot Springs, Arkansas

The disease of substance use disorder has spread across every corner of America, even in Arkansas. Drug and alcohol addiction may attack anyone at any moment, regardless of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or creed. Fortunately, treatment facilities exist throughout the state of Arkansas. All of these facilities offer treatment programs at different levels of treatment.

Hot Springs Residential Treatment Programs

Patients who are looking for a structured environment with access to round-the-clock care from healthcare professionals and addiction specialists may greatly benefit from a residential treatment program. In this program, patients can expect one-on-one therapy, group counseling, educational courses and healing undertakings.

Hot Springs Partial Hospitalization Programs

Patients who have a stable and safe environment in which to stay at night may be interested in a partial hospitalization program. This program is similar to the residential program, but after 6 to 8 hours at the facility during the day, patients are allowed to go home, depending on the program.

Hot Springs Outpatient Treatment Programs

Patients who have a living situation that is conducive to sobriety for most of the week may be interested in an outpatient treatment program. Outpatient programming involves minimal medical care and counseling.

Hot Springs Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

When you make the decision to stop your substance misuse, you will first need to detox. For some substances – like marijuana or LSD – this may be as simple as stopping the drug. For other substances – like alcohol or opiates – there will be a more complicated detox process with withdrawal symptoms that can be quite painful or even dangerous. For these patients, detox centers are often necessary because they provide medical supervision throughout this process to ease the withdrawal symptoms.

While detox is a critical step along the path to recovery, it is only one step. It’s important that you enroll into a treatment program after you detox. In a full-service treatment facility, patients will find medically assisted detox and inpatient treatment programs. This is convenient for many patients.

Recovery Meetings Near You in Hot Springs

Recovery groups like SMART Recovery, Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous hold regular meetings that can be essential to your long-term recovery. Fortunately, there are many options for meetings in the Hot Springs area.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

Regular meetings are held by Alcoholics Anonymous, the largest and oldest recovery group in the world. Founded in 1935 by Dr. Bob Smith and Bill Wilson, AA is a fellowship of men and women suffering from alcohol addiction. The foundation of AA is a 12-step program which asks members to look outside themselves to a higher power. Many people think of this higher power as God. However, it is not necessary to believe in God to be a member of AA. All that is required is a desire to stop drinking.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Another group that utilizes the 12 steps that ask members to trust in a higher power is the group of Narcotics Anonymous. Narcotics Anonymous is almost exactly like Alcoholics Anonymous except that it focuses on all substances – not just alcohol. Those who use heroin, prescription drugs, cocaine, marijuana and any other substance are welcome at an NA meeting.

SMART Recovery Meetings

For some people, 12-step meetings are not effective. Some people think AA and NA are too spiritually based. They are uncomfortable with the concept of a higher power. SMART Recovery, founded in 1994, may be a better fit for these people as it focuses more on self-reliance and self-empowerment. Using a 4-point system instead of the 12 steps, SMART Recovery has meetings online and in person all over the world. Here is the closest meeting to Hot Springs.

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon Meetings

It can be difficult, stressful and emotional to love, care for or support someone who has substance use disorder. When they are in active addiction, they can do things that will be hurtful. Even though the loved ones of those who have drug and alcohol addiction understand that they have a sickness, it still may be helpful to have a support system of their own. Nar-Anon and Al-Anon, sister organizations to NA and AA, serve this purpose. Here are three options for meetings in your area.
