Citrus Heights Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Citrus Heights in Sacramento County is centrally located and is within close proximity to Lake Tahoe and San Francisco. The Sierra Nevada Mountains are close by and the Sacramento Valley plains have trails just waiting to be explored. Other nearby recreational activities include parks, museums and a drive-in movie theater. Residents enjoy mild winters and easy access to restaurants and shopping areas.

However, Citrus Heights is also a victim of the increased incidents relating to drugs and alcohol that are affecting the rest of the country. This includes hash oil laboratories discovered in private residences and the storage and sale of illegal narcotics in residences. Undercover operations and vehicle checks by police officers continually result in arrests and the seizure of drugs.

Fortunately, help is at hand for struggling individuals who want help for their problems with substance abuse.

Finding Help in Citrus Heights

Citrus Heights, California Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Centers

Treatment programs have varying levels of care and the one you choose really depends on your circumstances. Many patients begin with a residential treatment program then progress to a partial hospitalization or outpatient basis. You need to understand the differences between the programs before deciding which one is best for you.

Residential Treatment Programs

Residential treatment programs are also called inpatient programs. As the name suggests, patients are expected to reside at the facility through the treatment program. This allows professional medical care to be given on a 24-hour basis. Individual and group therapy sessions as well as physical activities are parts of the program. In addition, skills are also taught to help patients cope with sober life once the treatment program has ended. This includes stress management and nutritional planning. Patients can expect to reside at the facility for 30 to 90 days. Some therapeutic communities offer longer programs of six months or more. The very nature of this type of treatment program means it’s more suited to patients with severe drug use disorders or those with a prolonged history of substance misuse.

Partial Hospitalization Programs

Partial hospitalization programs don’t expect patients to reside at the facility, providing their home environment is secure and supportive. A significant amount of time each day is to be spent in treatment at the facility however. This gives patients some autonomy while still providing them with many of the same amenities found in residential treatment programs.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

Outpatient programs allow patients to live at home and honor their daily commitments, such as work, education and family. Therapy continues at a facility at scheduled times. As professional care is not given on a continuous basis, patients must be determined enough to refrain from previous temptations. Their home environment must also be safe and supportive. With these factors in mind, outpatient programs are best suited to those with mild substance use disorders or those who’ve previously completed higher levels of treatment.

When thinking about the differences between the treatment programs, assess your situation carefully to decide which is the right one for you. Consider the length of your addiction, your addiction history and the substance you’re addicted to. Find out what treatment your insurance covers and any other financial help available to you.

Detox Centers

You’ve already taken the brave step of asking for help with your substance misuse. Now it’s time to rid your body of the harmful substances. Professionals monitor and treat you as you detox, which helps ease the withdrawal symptoms. Detoxification in this way, as opposed to attempting it alone, is more successful, less harmful and more likely to result in you reaching sobriety. You may even prefer to combine it with therapy in a treatment program.
