Auburn Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

As the county seat of Placer County, the town of Auburn, California takes great pride in its California Gold Rush heritage. A growing technology sector, flourishing agricultural resources and recreational activities provide residents with employment, good food and plenty of things to do in the outdoors.

In Auburn, as in the rest of the U.S., there is a hidden side to everyday life that people don’t enjoy discussing. People from all backgrounds fall victim to the growing problem of drug and alcohol misuse. Some people start abusing pain pills after an injury. Once their prescriptions run out, they turn to the street, and often to heroin since it is a cheaper alternative to many prescription narcotics. Others may have long-standing issues with alcohol misuse. They may feel ashamed or are fearful about seeking help, mainly due to the stigma that exists. There’s no better day than today to start on a path to sobriety. There are numerous recovery resources in and around Auburn, California.

Finding Help & Recovery in Auburn, CA

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Auburn, California

There are various drug and alcohol treatment facilities that can help those struggling with substance misuse. Many people seek help with substance misuse recovery in an area close to home. They feel as if their lives, and the lives of their dependents, face fewer disruptions this way. Other people prefer to check into rehab programs that are far from their homes. These patients may prefer privacy or wish to distance themselves from less-than-ideal social environments. No matter where you decide to undergo recovery, there are three main types of programs used to treat the misuse of drugs and alcohol.

    Auburn Residential Treatment Programs

    When you enter a residential rehab program, you will check in like a hospital patient. You may bring clothes and other personal items from home, although the list of acceptable items may be limited depending on the facility. Inpatient drug rehab features different types of services. Recovery professionals will discuss your needs and design a program that offers the best chance of recovery. You typically attend counseling sessions and educational meetings throughout the day. Your program may include art, music or physical therapy to help you relax and process your emotions. Group therapy is also offered during your treatment. You’re away from the everyday stresses of home, so you can concentrate on learning how to make better choices in the future. A residential treatment is ideal for those with a long history of misuse, or those who misuse highly addictive substances.

    Auburn Partial Hospitalization Programs

    Most of the benefits of a residential treatment program are also included in partial hospitalization rehab program. The only difference is that, at night, you go home or to another safe location. Partial hospitalization drug rehab centers are perfect for individuals who wish to continue with their day-day-to-day activities and still attend treatment. This budget- and family-friendly option is often the ideal choice for those with family responsibilities. Parents undergoing rehab can still be with their children at night. A partial hospitalization program is often the choice for those who have completed a residential program but aren’t ready for complete freedom.

    Auburn Outpatient Treatment Programs

    If you are in school, or working to support your household, you can still complete rehab via an outpatient rehab. Outpatient rehab programs give you plenty of time to live your life while you work toward recovery. You can tend to family responsibilities, go to school and attend work, coming to the facility at set intervals for treatment and counseling. Outpatient drug rehab requires that you stay away from situations and people that might trigger you to misuse.

Only you can decide which type of rehab plan is right for your situation. However, you should get some expert counseling before you make up your mind, since you may have a condition best managed with a specific type of treatment.

Auburn Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

Detoxification (detox) clears your system of the toxic substances it has become dependent upon. Patients attend detox centers first before starting their treatment programs. Because of the many debilitating physical and emotional side effects that often accompany detox, you shouldn’t try to detox on your own. A professional detox treatment facility is the safest place to undergo this process. In a professional facility, healthcare experts monitor you constantly for any side effects from withdrawal, sometimes prescribing non-addictive medication to combat the symptoms.

Recovery Meetings Near You in Auburn

Recovery meetings make a huge difference in the lives of people who have been through detox and rehab. People who’ve never entered rehab often gain inspiration by attending recovery meetings. If your friends, co-workers or family don’t quite understand your issues with drugs or alcohol, you can find fellowship and support with recovery organizations when you need it most. Organizations such as Alcohol Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and SMART Recovery can help you work through your issues to reconnect with loved ones.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

Patients that have completed their alcohol treatment are often advised to join recovery groups. Alcoholics Anonymous meetings can be lifesaving for people with an alcohol misuse disorder. Once you become a member, you have a network of people who want to encourage and hold you up when times get tough. Group members celebrate your milestones and share their own struggles. AA follows a 12-step program that guides members toward sobriety. Meetings do not follow a certain religion, but do ask you to submit your struggle to a higher power.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Narcotics Anonymous follows a similar 12-step approach to that of AA, asking you to submit to a higher power in your quest to avoid the temptation of drugs. You work side-by-side with others who have faced or are currently facing the same challenges as you. You learn to live by the motto, “Just for today,” to get through each day of recovery and beyond.

SMART Recovery Meetings

For some people, the AA and NA reliance on a higher power is non-productive. People who prefer a recovery plan based on science and research often find motivation and growth in SMART Recovery meetings. Members learn self-reliance and gain the skills necessary to look within for guidance and motivation.

Attendees can join discussions to share stories of triumph and failure, or choose just to listen to the stories and advice of others.
