Substance Abuse and Addiction Treatment Resources in Hayward

Hayward Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Hayward, located in Alameda County, sits at the head of San Francisco Bay. Nicknamed the “heart of the bay,” it’s conveniently located within close proximity to San Francisco and Oakland and is a sought-after location for businesses. There are many sights and recreational activities to be enjoyed in this city, such as the Hayward Japanese Gardens, the Mural Arts Program of Hayward, golfing, relaxing in the parks and swimming in the Don Castro lagoon. The location of the Bay Area’s sixth largest city means residents benefit from short commute times to work. Warm summers and mild winters also make this a great city to live in.

What is detrimental to this city, however, is the increasing rate of incidents relating to drugs and alcohol. As with most cities in the United States, drug trafficking has reached epidemic proportions and injuries or fatalities due to the consumption of drugs and/or alcohol are increasing at an alarming rate. In Hayward, police work hard to shut down drug grows and arrest suspects for drug distribution. Authorities have even resorted to monitoring social media accounts to catch those responsible for the sale of illegal narcotics.

There is hope for individuals struggling with substance abuse as there are plenty of treatment options to choose from.

Finding Help in Hayward

Hayward, California Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Centers

There are different levels of treatment programs and the right one for you depends on your current situation. Some patients start with residential treatment programs then progress to partial hospitalization or outpatient programs. Before you decide which treatment program is best for you, find out the differences between each one.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    Residential treatment programs are also known as inpatient programs. Patients reside at the treatment facility and benefit from professional medical care around the clock. This provides a healthy environment away from detrimental temptations and triggers encountered in the normal home environment. Individual and group therapy sessions are held and patients participate in physical activities. Skills are taught, such as nutritional planning and stress management, which help patients to cope with sober life upon leaving the treatment facility. Patients can expect to stay in a residential treatment program for 30 to 90 days, although longer programs of six months or more are available with some therapeutic communities. Residential treatment programs are ideal for patients with a prolonged history of substance misuse or a severe substance use disorder.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    Partial hospitalization programs provide many amenities similar to those found in residential treatment programs. The main difference is that patients don’t reside at the facility. A significant amount of time is spent at the facility each day and patients return home afterward, giving them a degree of autonomy. A supportive home environment is essential for this to work.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    Outpatient programs offer the most freedom and flexibility. Patients live at home and participate in therapy sessions at specified times. This allows them to continue with everyday commitments, such as family, work and education. Patients must be strong-willed and avoid temptations that may trigger their substance use disorders. A safe and supportive home environment is a must. Outpatient programs are ideal for those with mild substance use disorders. This type of program is also suitable for those who’ve already completed treatment at higher levels.

Assess your situation when thinking about the different treatment levels before deciding which program is best for you. Take into account the substance you misuse and how long your disorder has lasted. Consider your substance use disorder history and whether you need a medical detox. Find out what insurance cover you have for treatments and if any other financial help is available to you. Consider your rehab options and find the best fit for you.

Detox Centers

You’ve made the brave decision to seek treatment for your addiction. Now you need to detox to rid your body of the harmful substances. Withdrawal has unpleasant side effects but at a detox center your progress is monitored and treated throughout. Medical assistance is given to make it easier. Completing detoxification gives you a better chance of successfully achieving sobriety and retaining it in the long run.

Aftercare is an essential aspect of staying sober. When you return home from a rehab center, attending recovery meetings is a great way to receive ongoing support.
