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

When it comes to drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, there are many options available in the Hayward area. Before you can start researching appropriate facilities, however, you need to familiarize yourself with the different levels of treatment.

Most facilities offer three different treatment programs for those who are seeking treatment for substance use disorder. The level you need will largely depend on factors like the specific substance you are addicted to, whether or not you need detox and your history with addiction.

Residential Treatment Programs in Hayward

In a residential treatment program, the patient will stay in the facility 24 hours a day, and he or she will have access to healthcare professionals during that time. A residential treatment program typically lasts somewhere between 30 and 90 days, though there are some programs that are shorter or longer.

Hayward Partial Hospitalization Programs

In a partial hospitalization program (PHP), the patient will be in the facility for 6 to 8 hours during the day, and he or she will be permitted to go home in the evenings, assuming he or she has access to a safe and stable environment.

Outpatient Treatment Programs for Hayward

In an outpatient treatment program, the patient will be at the facility for 10 to 20 hours during the week. This may be every day in the mornings or 2 to 3 days for a longer period, but patients in this program are still able to work.

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. Recovery groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous and SMART Recovery, provide much-needed encouragement in support meetings and recovery programs.
