Jeffersonville Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Jeffersonville, Indiana has known many incarnations. The convenient location along the Ohio River and across from Kentucky’s largest city (Louisville) made the town instrumental during the American Civil War. Jeffersonville was considered the ‘Gateway to the South.’ The riverside location of Jeffersonville was a Union hub for military supplies and troops. Later on, the town began to become a hotspot for German immigrants. In 1870 over 17 percent of Jeffersonville’s population were from Germany. In the 1930’s, gambling on the riverboat became Jeffersonville’s claim to fame and people gave the town the nickname ‘Little Las Vegas.’

Today, the hamlet of Jeffersonville is battling a different foe: substance abuse. The illness is reaching pandemic proportions and is reaching small towns with the same voracity as megacities. Substance abuse is a real problem for millions of people all throughout America.

Fortunately, there are many resources available for those who are willing to seek treatment for substance use disorder. Detox centers, rehabilitation centers, medication-assisted treatment and recovery meetings are available to help those who want to seek treatment for substance use disorder.

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Jeffersonville, Indiana

Treatment programs can be categorized into three, primary types of rehabilitation clinics: residential, partial hospitalization and outpatient treatment centers. Typically all three types of facility will implement detoxification, individual cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), group counselling and preparation for a mutual-aid fellowship. Let’s discuss some of the aspects which make these treatment centers different from one another.

Jeffersonville Residential Treatment Programs

Residential treatment programs have several names including inpatient and retreat-based facilities. During your time in a retreat-based clinic you’ll live at the center and receive holistic therapies including basic treatments of detox, CBT, group counselling, preparation for aftercare (found in all three primary type of program) and routinely provide stress management tools like yoga and meditation.

Jeffersonville Partial Hospitalization Programs

Partial hospitalization programs ask their patients to remain on-site during a specified time period during recovery. Generally, this phase is the vulnerable stage of detox. Afterward the participant returns home to commute for prescribed treatment.

Jeffersonville Outpatient Treatment Programs

Outpatient centers are flexible options for people who cannot take the required time to attend a residential treatment program. You’ll receive the same basic therapies, but won’t have the safety of a protected environment in which to recover.

There’s a dire need for recovery programs in the United States, but because of this demand another challenge is presented to you, even before you’ll receive treatment. Choosing an effective program among the endless supply of treatment facilities can be overwhelming.

Jeffersonville Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

Detoxification is a vital milestone in recovery and it can be tricky because society often conflates detox and recovery together. The truth of the matter is cleansing your system of the misused substance is necessary, but you can go through the process, without any actual recuperation. The substance misuse is a symptom of a substance use disorder.

Substance use disorders are complex and insidious illnesses with roots as plentiful as there are different types of people in the world. Research suggests that heredity, environment, trauma, exposure and personal circumstances are all relatable factors to the persistence of this chronic condition.

It is due to this complexity, experts compiled the traditional approaches of residential treatment programs. Detoxification, individual cognitive behavioral therapy, group counselling and preparation for aftercare, all comprise the most commonly practiced therapeutics. A holistic, multifaceted approach is statistically more likely to aid in the management of a substance use disorder.

Avoid any program with a singular focus on the physical act of cleansing the body of toxins. The substance use is a symptom. An illness cannot by managed by only addressing the symptoms. It’s addressed through new habits and behaviors to sustain your long-term sobriety.

Recovery Meetings Near You in Jeffersonville

Eventually, you’ll need to leave the sanctuary of a retreat-based program, but you will still need support along your way to recovery. This is where aftercare fellowships like Alcoholics Anonymous and SMART Recovery meetings become important. Mutual-Aid groups are the bedrock of many people’s sobriety.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

In 1935, Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith were battling their own illness with alcohol in Akron, Ohio when they designed the 12 steps that have become iconic to American culture. Today, Alcoholics Anonymous is the most widely used aftercare fellowship with over 60,000 meetings held annually in over 130 nations. At the core, AA is a spiritually led group which is self-sustaining and unaffiliated with any religion.  Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are free of charge, confidential and open to anyone who is fighting with their alcohol misuse.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Narcotics Anonymous is a natural growth to the Anonymous non-profit organization. As the necessity for a mutual-aid group grew in the country, so did this offshoot of Alcoholics Anonymous. Participants follow the 12 steps and respect the 12 traditions. NA has a spiritual foundation, where people from all religions and walks of life are welcome at their meetings. Inclusivity is at the center of all Anonymous traditions, steps and meetings. Members are encouraged to find a sponsor and eventually volunteer to become a sponsor for someone else. The different types of meetings offer a vast assortment, including: testimonial, speaker, book study and guest speaker oriented gatherings.

SMART Recovery Meetings

An innovation separate from Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous is the newer mutual-aid fellowship, SMART Recovery. SMART is an acronym for Self-Management and Addiction Recovery Training. SMART Recovery operates from a scientific authority, in place of a spiritual perspective. Instead of 12 steps, there is a four point program members are encouraged to follow.

  1. Sustain motivation to remain sober.
  2. Manage impulses.
  3. Find new ways to cope with the emotions, thoughts and behaviors which exacerbate substance use disorders.
  4. Discover a life-style balance that helps members live happy, productive lives.

SMART Recovery meetings do not present testimonials, nor do they have sponsors throughout their rehabilitation. Frank discussions are conducted and labels like addict and alcoholic are strongly discouraged.

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon Meetings

Your family and friends don’t go through the discomfort of physical withdrawal, but they do witness the disease’s progression, which may cause emotional exhaustion. Al-Anon and Nar-Anon are safe spaces where your loved ones can find information and support throughout this endeavor. Al-Anon is for anyone who is coping with a loved one’s alcohol misuse. Nar-Anon is geared toward the family and friends of someone who is struggling with narcotics abuse. The 12 steps and 12 traditions are a significant part of the Al-Anon and Nar-Anon meetings. The only requirement to join an Al-Anon or Nar-Anon group is the desire to proactively cope with the effects of another’s substance use disorder.

The insidious nature of a substance use disorder convinces the patient that the illness doesn’t warrant serious measures for recovery. Imagine you’ve been diagnosed with Lymphoma. Your oncologist has prescribed treatment which is to be conducted in another city. Would you hesitate to save your life because the therapy is in another location? It’s the same with a substance use disorder, but the disease is shrouded in stigma and misinformation, so the patient doesn’t realize until they’re seriously ill. If you have the opportunity to recover in a retreat-based facility, invest in the sanctuary provided for you. You deserve the best chance at rehabilitation.
