Crawfordsville Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Crawfordsville is a little town in Indiana and is home to one of the last all male liberal arts colleges in the United States, Wabash College. The institution originated in 1832 with the earlier moniker of ‘The Wabash Teachers Seminary and Manual Labor College’. Crawfordsville, Indiana is also home to the Crawfordsville Monster legend that began in the 19th century as an amorphous cloud with glowing, ruby eyes. It was soon discovered that the monster was actually a flock of killdeer that were confused and gathered together because of the new electric street lights.

There is a monster in Crawfordsville, Indiana but it isn’t a huddled mass of scared birds. It is a pandemic that’s ravaging our country: substance abuse. Sprawling cities like New York and Chicago expect these problems as part of the urban environment, but small town USA like Crawfordsville is just as vulnerable to this devastating disease.

Substance use disorders are chronic conditions that can have serious consequences if left untreated. Yet, the community of Crawfordsville, Indiana and the United States as a whole are fighting back help those who have contracted this illness.

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Crawfordsville, Indiana

We will explore what is involved in the recovery process. Our discussion will include an overview of treatment program types like residential, partial hospitalization and outpatient treatment programs. The guide will inform you on what is required from you once you take the brave step toward controlling your substance use disorder and embracing sobriety. This guide will also act as an informative resource on how to get quality care and where to start your journey to wellness.

Crawfordsville Residential Treatment Programs

Residential treatment programs have many monikers: inpatient and retreat-based facilities are two of the most common names for these treatment centers. During a retreat-based program you will remain on-site and living at the clinic throughout the duration of your treatment. Inpatient treatment is the most comprehensive and protective form of rehabilitation because the threats to your sobriety are completely removed until you’re discharged and stronger within your new sober life.

Crawfordsville Partial Hospitalization Programs

Partial hospitalization programs share many similar characteristics with retreat-based facilities. However, you will most likely only remain living at the clinic during detoxification and then return home. Afterwards, commuting to the facility for all require therapies.

Crawfordsville Outpatient Treatment Programs

Outpatient treatment programs are convenient and non-invasive forms of recovery. At no point during your therapy will you reside at the facility. You will commute to the program daily for all of your prescribed treatments.

Crawfordsville Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

The misuse of alcohol, prescription opioids, heroin, cocaine and other narcotics is a symptom of a bigger illness. A substance use disorder is an inherently personal disease with origins relating to heredity, environment, personal experience, availability of the desired substance and trauma. This is perhaps why substance use disorders don’t have a cure. Everyone struggling with this disorder all have it for different reasons.

Illnesses like bronchitis and glaucoma have defined roots that can be traced back to specific causes and appropriate treatments are created and applied in response. The sheer diversity of substance use disorders is what makes the condition so complex.

A detox center that doesn’t address the root causes of the disease will most likely be insufficient in helping you manage your condition. It is possible to cleanse the toxins from your body and still fail to experience recovery. Substance use disorders are chronic conditions with similar relapse rates to hypertension and asthma. You’ll need to develop several coping mechanisms to help you deal with these relapses. Sobriety is important to recovery, but it’s not the definition of recuperative success. Success in recovery is being able to return to treatment and aftercare fellowships despite bumps in the road to health.

Recovery Meetings Near You in Crawfordsville

Recovery can be synonymous with aftercare fellowships like Alcoholics Anonymous or SMART Recovery meetings. These groups are wonderful, open resources where you can find information, support and understanding from a diverse community. Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and SMART Recovery are all self-sustaining, non-profit organizations that are dedicated to anyone fighting to manage their substance use disorders.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

In less than a century, Alcoholics Anonymous has become an icon in the United States and the most widely attended mutual aid fellowship with over 60,000 meetings held every year in over 130 countries. In 1935, Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith created Alcoholics Anonymous with the spiritually founded 12 steps to help themselves and others constructively manage their misuse of alcohol. Alcoholic Anonymous employs a spiritual approach to recovery but refuses to affiliate with any religion, faith or political dogma that may exclude anyone who needs the group. The singular requirement for joining AA is the desire to stop misusing alcohol.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

As the nation becomes saturated with the wide availability of mind altering chemicals, so does the need for Narcotics Anonymous meetings. Participants follow the 12 steps and try to abide by the 12 traditions while alternating presentations of personal testimonials concerning their progress along the journey to recovery. Members are encouraged to find a sponsor. A sponsor is a seasoned Narcotics Anonymous participant who helps other members find their way through rehabilitation. NA is built on a spiritual groundwork but people from all faiths and walks of life are more than welcome to join this fellowship.

SMART Recovery Meetings

SMART Recovery meetings have a lot in common with their older mutual-aid fellowships like AA and NA but operate from a scientific and logical foundation instead of spiritual bedrock. SMART is an acronym for Self-Management and Addiction Recovery Training. There aren’t any sponsors found in SMART Recovery meetings and negative labels like addict and alcoholic are deeply discouraged. SMART Recovery tries to help participants maintain the motivation to manage their condition, cope with impulses and find a life-style balance. If you’re interested in attending a SMART Recovery meeting it is best to contact the group’s facilitator to check if they’re accepting new members.

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon Meetings

A substance misuse disease doesn’t just affect the ill individual. The corrosive tendrils of alcohol and narcotics abuse weave their way into the life of those you love. Substance use disorders do harm to the family and friends of those struggling with this chronic condition. Al-Anon is a mutual-aid fellowship for the loved ones of a person fighting against the misuse of alcohol. Nar-Anon is a care group for the family and friends of anyone battling against narcotic use disorders. Al-Anon and Nar-Anon share the same spiritual origins as AA and NA and follow the same 12 steps and 12 traditions. These groups are for anybody who needs a supportive community to cope with their loved one’s substance use disorder.

A part of the reason why residential and retreat-based treatment programs are so effective at helping patients manage their substance use disorder is because the participant has the time and space away from the temptation and stresses found in their home environments.
It may not feel like it now, but a retreat-based rehabilitative experience is a gift. Removing the enabling people, alcohol or drugs and concentrating on your own health and well-being is vital to the recovery process. Believe it or not, you need distance from your environment to provide you with a better perspective on what elements in your life contribute to the strength of your disorder. Find a way to take time out to focus on your recovery.
