Lancaster Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Lancaster is a city with a rich history in transportation. From its early days as an outpost along the Southern Pacific Railroad, people in Lancaster have long been on the move. The tradition continues into the more modern days of aviation travel, thanks to the nearby Edwards Air Force Base. The hustle and bustle has generated a local economic boom that’s sparked jobs in a variety of industries as more and more families move to this high desert community.

Unfortunately, Lancaster has not escaped from the nationwide opioid epidemic unscathed. With its proximity to Los Angeles and easy access by all methods of transportation, Lancaster has certain population segments that are vulnerable to substance misuse issues and trafficking. Drugs and alcohol wreak havoc in the lives of Lancaster families and schools, but this problem can be reversed.

A critical step in overcoming the challenges of a growing opioid epidemic and the issues caused by drug and alcohol misuse is acknowledging the reality of the disease and providing proper treatment for those affected. Treatment options are available, and should be regarded as seriously as treatment choices for people suffering from diseases like cancer and diabetes.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    Intended for individuals with the most severe and long-term addictions, residential treatment program offer 24/7 care at a treatment facility that’s staffed with professionals to handle patient needs around the clock. Residential treatment programs often last about 12 weeks and work to progressively shift patients from drug dependence to independent living through intensive therapy. Many residential treatment programs also offer important skill building and educational opportunities to help improve the likelihood of a successful transition out of rehab and back into daily life.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    Partial hospitalization programs offer many of the treatment options and even some of the educational opportunities of residential programs. However, these programs do so without requiring patients to stay onsite 24/7. These programs are intended for individuals who have serious substance use disorders to overcome but can still handle living on their own while going through treatment. Partial hospitalization programs can be particularly helpful for those with children and other family members who need their continued presence at home.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    When individuals complete more intense programs like residential treatment programs and need some continued care as they adjust to life at home, outpatient programs help to ease that transition. Outpatient programs can also be helpful for individuals who are struggling with mild substance misuse problems and need some guidance to break the habit. While participating in an outpatient program, patients live at home and travel to the treatment center on a daily or weekly basis for programs.

In addition to taking an honest look at the substance use disorder that you or your family member might be facing, you’ll also need to consider which levels of treatment your health insurance policy covers. Learn more about treatment options, including drug rehab or alcohol rehab to find out what your best fit would be.

Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

Before you go through the main component of your rehabilitation program, you’ll need to detox from the substance(s) to which you’re dependent upon. While many facilities only accept patients after they’ve detoxed, some residential programs do offer detox as one of their services. Detoxing in a treatment facility helps you to manage symptoms and cope with the struggles of withdrawal and cravings. Some facilities will even allow you to begin some of the first steps of your rehabilitation program as you complete your detox so that you can stay on track with your treatment plan.
