Rancho Cordova Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Rancho Cordova runs along the American River in Sacramento County. Residents here enjoy a variety of outdoor recreational activities year-round in the beautiful, sunny California climate such as visiting any of the area’s parks on the banks of the river or the shores of nearby Lake Natoma and Folsom Lake. For the rare rainy or chilly day, they head a few miles away to the city of Sacramento and visit the Historic District, several museums or the animals at the Sacramento Zoo.

Sadly, another element has seeped into this Riverside suburb: alcohol and drug addiction. The city hasn’t escaped the surge in drug-related deaths that the rest of the state and country is experiencing. Between 1999 and 2015, more than 183,000 people in the U.S. died from a prescription pain killer overdose. The ample availability of alcohol in the United States just adds to the struggles of individuals fighting addiction. Law enforcement alongside local and state leaders are limited in what they can do about alcohol, but they are working on stopping the illegal drug trade.

Your addiction doesn’t have to land you in the local emergency room or worse, the morgue. Help is available. You don’t need to struggle alone. Substance abuse specialists know that addiction is a complicated chronic illness and not a breakdown of morals or a sign of weakness. Alcohol and drug dependence is blind; it doesn’t care about religion, education, social standing or wealth. But, it is treatable. The next section reviews the types of drug rehab facilities and how they can help you end your substance use disorder.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    These are short treatment plans that last three to six weeks. They are intense and highly structured. In a hospital setting, patients attend several recovery meetings, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and SMART meetings daily along with individual therapy sessions. Most residential drug rehab plans begin with medically assisted withdrawal and discharge patients to a day treatment facility or an outpatient program.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    Some patients need to slowly re-enter their home community. Partial hospitalization, which is also known as day treatment is less structured than residential recovery, but they still offer more support than the outpatient drug rehab centers in Rancho Cordova, CA. Here, patients spend several hours a day attending recovery meetings, group skills sessions and individual therapy appointments. As their recovery progresses, time spent in the facility is reduced until the structure is no longer necessary.

  • Connector.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    Outpatient drug rehab programs in Rancho Cordova, CA and elsewhere offer the least amount of structure and support but are still an excellent resource to help you stay on the right path to sobriety. When you enroll in an outpatient rehab facility, the first step is to sit down with a treatment coordinator and create a plan that works for you. It will detail the number of recovery meetings you attend each week and include an emergency plan for combating cravings and situations that can lead to those urges.

Congratulations on taking the first step towards living a life without alcohol and drug dependence. Take your time to carefully consider all the drug rehab centers available to you in Rancho Cordova, as well as outside Rancho Cordova and outside of California.

Rancho Cordova Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

If you are dependent on opioids such as prescription pain medications, heroin, prescription sleep drugs or alcohol, it’s necessary to begin treatment in a drug detox. This process removes the toxins from your body so that you can start the drug rehab program with a clear mind. Because drug detox can come with painful and unpleasant side effects, it’s recommended that this process take place in a hospital setting where your vital signs can be monitored by a full medical staff. Also referred to as medically assisted withdrawal, a physician can prescribe non-addictive medications to reduce the severity or even eliminate some symptoms. You shouldn’t feel shame asking for help with withdrawal. In fact, patients that begin treatment with detox can reduce their chances of a relapse.

Recovery Meetings Near You in Rancho Cordova

After completing a drug and alcohol rehab program in Rancho Cordova, California or somewhere else in the country, it’s important to continue with sobriety meetings. The Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous group sessions that you took part in during your initial treatment are free, open to anyone and available in multiple locations throughout the country. By staying active in your recovery, you can reduce the chances of a relapse.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

Since 1939, the published works of the Alcoholics Anonymous has been helping men and women who admit that they cannot control their drinking. AA helps them find the strength to reach sobriety and maintain it. The only requirement to attend any meeting is your desire to end alcohol dependence. The community-based organization uses a 12-step program that asks members to put their faith in a higher power to help them control their urges and stay on the path to sobriety.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

SMART Recovery Meetings

Understandably, no matter how many people that AA and NA have helped, the spiritual approach doesn’t work for everyone. If you are more rooted in science, SMART Recovery Meetings may be the answer. The non-profit community organization is for anyone who wants to abstain from addictive behavior. Using a four-point program, these meetings challenge you to change negative feelings and any resulting actions into positive change. Rather than have members put their strength in a higher power, they encourage self-empowerment and learning new, healthy techniques to cope with cravings. Meetings are about educating members through discussion.

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon Meetings

If you worry about a loved one’s drinking or drug use, you aren’t alone. A Kaiser Family Health Tracking Poll in 2016 found that 44 percent of the respondents personally knew someone who was dependent on just prescription pain medications. If you add alcohol and all the other substances people can misuse, that percentage will double. Al-Anon and Nar-Anon understand that alcohol and drug dependence are family diseases and exist to help you. The people closest to the person struggling with addiction are also the ones that hurt the most. At these meetings, you can meet, listen and talk to other members experiencing similar situations and emotions as you.
