Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Jonesboro, Arkansas

When you consider the treatment program that you’ll need at a treatment center, it’s essential to develop a comprehensive understanding of the things that you’ll be able to expect with each treatment program. The majority of treatment facilities provide patients with outpatient treatment, partial hospitalization and inpatient treatment. Here is more in-depth information about said treatment programs.

Jonesboro Residential Treatment Programs

Inpatient treatment is designed for patients that do not presently have a safe or stable living situation, patients that have the worst addictions, patients who need detox before they can begin treatment or patients who will require access to round-the-clock medical care.

Jonesboro Partial Hospitalization Programs

Partial hospitalization is designed for patients that require the same sort of treatment offered in inpatient treatment but they do have access to a secure and drug-free living situation, patients that have a less severe drug or alcohol addiction, patients that don’t need detox or patients that only need medical care when they are at the facility during the day.

Jonesboro Outpatient Treatment Programs

Outpatient treatment is designed for patients that don’t need the same level of care as inpatient or partial hospitalization patients and also have access to a reliable and secure living environment, patients that have milder addictions or patients who will only require medical care when they are at the facility for 10 to 15 hours throughout the week.

The most effective way to get treatment is sometimes to begin with detox, progress to an inpatient treatment program, go on to a partial hospitalization program and then move on to an outpatient treatment program.

Jonesboro Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

If you are currently misusing a substance like marijuana or LSD and you stop using them, there are virtully no physical withdrawal symptoms associated with detox. However, if your body is dependent on opiates or alcohol and you stop them, there can be serious withdrawal symptoms that can require medically supervised detox before a treatment program can be begun. This is the reason detox centers can be helpful.

Detox centers are lacking, though, as many patients understand because they don’t provide treatment programs. If you don’t receive full treatment after you detox, it will be all too easy for you to slip back into addiction. Without addressing the mental and psychological roots of your substance misuse, you will likely return to the same habits even after detoxing.

Recovery Meetings Near You in Jonesboro

There are numerous phases to a successful recovery journey. Treatment programs are only as effective as the aftercare plan. Most likely, your aftercare plan will involve meetings with Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous or SMART Recovery.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

Alcoholics Anonymous is a nonprofit organization consisting of men and women that are overcoming alcohol addiction by working the 12-step program, reading helpful and positive literature such as The Big Book, leaning on each other for support and communicating with a sponsor (or experienced member). The only thing that AA requires of its members, though, is that they all have the desire to stop drinking alcohol. Here are three meetings in Jonesboro.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Similar to Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous is a 12-step group that centers around drug addiction. This can be an addiction to any substance from alcohol to LSD to cocaine to methamphetamine to heroin to prescription medications. NA was started in 1953, and NA meetings have a very similar structure to AA meetings. Here are a few meetings in Jonesboro.

SMART Recovery Meetings

For some people in recovery, programs like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are too spiritual. Although these programs don’t subscribe to any particular religion, the concept of a higher power is similar to the concept of God. For those who want a more scientifically based recovery program, SMART Recovery may be a better fit. With a 4-point system, SMART Recovery is focused more on self-empowerment and self-reliance. Here is the closest meeting to Jonesboro.

Alpha Omega Veterans Service
1183 Madison Ave.
Memphis, TN 38104

These support groups offer a place for the loved ones of people who suffer from substance use disorder to gather and lean on each other for strength. Here are two Al-Anon meetings in the area.
