Finding Help in Burlingame, CA

Burlingame, California Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Centers

There are also partial hospitalization treatment options that can serve others well. So, don’t give up hope. There is a solution for coming back from substance misuse and addiction.

Residential Treatment Programs

Those who have been addicted for a long time or who have severe addiction will benefit most from in residential treatment programs.

There are also caring professionals who can help that patient work through emotional and psychological issues to remove roadblocks to recovery and healthy living.

Partial Hospitalization Programs

In a partial hospitalization treatment program, a person still has access to dedicated medical and therapeutic support but he or she remains living at home or other safe, stable environment. Patients are required to attend therapeutic sessions several times a week on their road to recovery.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

In some cases where addiction is not as extreme or as extended, outpatient recovery programs are valid options. Once a patient has completed a detox program, he or she will attend sessions at a center while continuing to live at home or at a treatment facility. The goal is to work toward recovery while living in a safe and stable environment where emotional support might also be available.

Whether you choose a residential treatment program, partial hospitalization or outpatient treatment, be assured that there is hope and recovery is possible. Your treatment plan will be specific to you and your situation including the length of time you have been addicted, the substances you’re addicted to and other factors. It’s important to always be up front when interacting with addiction specialists so they can help you properly.
