Tracy Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Tucked inside the triangle of San Jose, San Francisco and Sacramento, Tracy, California, is a haven for artists, nature lovers and entrepreneurs. This lush San Joaquin Valley location has been called “the food basket of the world” for its production of grapes, nuts, citrus fruits, vegetables and other agricultural products. Tracy also has access to several metropolitan area airports and other modes of modern transportation for those interested in business or recreational visits to the area.

However, in spite of its idyllic vistas, Tracy suffers from a drug misuse epidemic that plagues many other areas of the country today. The recent epidemic of opioid and heroin misuse in California is largely attributed to higher awareness of patient rights to pain relief and fluctuations in how prescriptions are handled. Heroin misuse is also on the rise, especially among younger people.

In San Joaquin County, reports show 4.2 overdose deaths per 10,000 people. Fortunately, there is hope for people with substance use disorders at drug and alcohol treatment facilities. The positive focus on this dark topic is that there’s help available through many private and public sources.

Finding Help in Tracy

Tracy, California Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Centers

It takes bravery and commitment to enter a Tracy drug treatment facility or rehabilitation program. Many people enter and complete drug or alcohol treatment more than once. That’s okay. It’s not how many times you fall down that defines you, but how many times you get back up and try again. Whether it’s your first time entering a Tracy drug rehab or you’re repeating a recovery plan, take some time to consider which type of program is best for your needs. All drug and alcohol abuse programs require a time commitment on your part, with a month being the minimum time required to complete most plans.

Residential Treatment Programs

Residential treatment plans may last a month to six months. Patients check in and remain at the treatment facility for the duration of the program. A structured schedule of daily activities keeps you busy getting your life back on track, and may include a combination of medical exams, mental health counseling, educational gatherings and behavioral therapy. You may be prescribed medications to soothe any anxiety or other effects of weaning yourself from drugs and alcohol. The primary benefits of inpatient drug rehab are twofold. First, you have your basic needs met so you can focus on getting well. Second, you’re removed from people, easy access and situations that may trigger you to use drugs or alcohol in weak moments.

Partial Hospitalization Programs

It’s not always possible to stay long-term in a Tracy alcohol treatment facility or drug rehab center, either for personal or financial reasons. Perhaps you must help your partner or child, or you have severe anxiety about sleeping away from your own home. A partial hospitalization program gives you all of the organized activities of a residential program with the security of being in your own bedroom each night. You will need to show that you can refrain from accessing drugs or alcohol when you return home from the treatment program each night, and you’ll be tested to make certain you’re being honest.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

Outpatient substance-abuse treatment programs are a lifeline for people who don’t believe they have time to go to rehab. If you can’t quit working or attending college, you can still get help with your drug and alcohol misuse disorder. An intake counselor will help you determine which classes, therapies and other treatment features will help you, and these activities will be scheduled to work with your other commitments. As with partial hospitalization therapy, you must be strong enough to resist temptation and have strong support to keep you on track.

Consider which type of drug abuse treatment plan is best for your situation. If possible, develop a network of people who can help you throughout your treatment regimen.

Detox Centers

If you’ve tried to stop your drug or alcohol intake and failed, you realize how hard it can be to break bad habits and substance misuse on your own. Some drugs and alcohol have such profound effects on the body, your life may be threatened when you abruptly quit your intake of these substances. Even if your life’s not in physical danger, the symptoms of withdrawal may be so unbearable, you end up using drugs or alcohol again despite your best intentions.

With supervised detoxification you have a team of health care professionals monitoring you and helping you work through your physical, mental and emotional changes. You may be administered medicine to reduce your discomfort or cravings. You’re more likely to continue with drug detox than when trying to go it alone.
