Marysville Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources
Pioneered in the 1850s, Marysville was a milestone Pony Express station, which is a point of hometown pride commemorated with a museum and a bronze statue downtown. Marysville also is known for its rare and visually striking coal-black squirrels. There are city parks, a pool, and the Blue River Rail Trail for hiking and biking, all of which offer healthy recreational choices in this town of just over 3,000 residents.
Unfortunately, drug and alcohol abuse can happen anywhere. In 2016, about 64,000 people in the United States died of drug overdoses, the largest annual jump ever and overdoses are now the biggest cause of death of Americans under 50 years old. States along the East Coast, including Florida, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, are hardest hit, but the opioid epidemic has found its way into the heartland of Kansas and nearby Nebraska.
Residents of Marysville, just south of the Nebraska border, will find that when they’re ready to stop using and start learning sobriety strategies, they can find compassionate help and support. If you’re ready to give up drugs or alcohol, take a few minutes to consider drug rehab options. It’s a difficult but rewarding journey that you don’t have to take alone.

Finding Help & Recovery in Marysville, KS
Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Marysville, Kansas
Residents can find alcohol and drug rehab centers. As patients and families consider what type of treatment will be most helpful, keep in mind that the best treatment choice may be farther from home, depending on your individual needs.
Residential Treatment Programs
An inpatient, full-time residential treatment program offers several advantages. It includes full-time supervision and removal from negative influences—i.e., friends and family who use alcohol or drugs or contribute, consciously or unconsciously, to patterns of using. Inpatient drug rehab includes medical care for concurrent problems as well as substance use, including depression, anxiety, poor nutrition, and other basic health problems. Physicians and other medical personnel can help ease the transition with appropriate medications. In addition to physical treatment, daily care will include mental health therapy, and individual, group, or family counseling. Such programs also offer structure and options for recreational and comfort care as they guide the patient away from drugs and toward life after treatment focused on fellowship support that will maintain sobriety. Such programs can be very effective. One 2004 study of women patients found that among those who stayed with treatment for several months, 76 to 78 percent remained abstinent, compared with just over half of women who did not complete treatment.
Partial Hospitalization Programs
For some patients, partial hospitalization may be a better option than full-time inpatient treatment. This may include those who need 9-to-5 structure, but they lack the funding for inpatient care or need more flexibility to maintain home and office duties. Partial hospitalization will include the same medical and drug or alcohol treatment strategies, such as individual and group counseling, motivational and self-awareness strategies, and attention to concurrent medical problems. If the patient has sufficient support at home and does not need to be completely removed from situations where there may be drugs or alcohol, this type of drug rehab center can be every bit as successful as inpatient treatment.
Outpatient Treatment Programs
For even more flexibility, outpatient programs offer treatment at regularly scheduled appointments for medical care and counseling. They allow patients to continue their obligations such as school or a job, while maintaining regular appointments for medical attention and individual, group, and family counseling. According to one 2003 study, such programs are both effective and cost-friendly, since there are no expenses for overnight housing. The study found that outpatient drug rehabs helped in reduction of substances used and in length of time in maintaining sobriety.
Whichever treatment path a patient chooses, know that it’s often a successful route to a lifetime of continued sobriety. Before beginning, however, patients who have been drinking or using drugs often will need a detox program to rid the body of substances and ease the transition into treatment. Suddenly stopping drug or alcohol use can have side effects that not only are unpleasant, but also can be dangerous. Don’t attempt to detox on your own when medical professionals can help.
Marysville Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers
Detox can last a week or longer, depending on the substance, with the worst symptoms occurring for 24 to 48 hours. In addition to the well-known delirium, symptoms may include anxiety, shakiness, problems sleeping, depression, and blood pressure and heart rate changes. In detox, medical professionals will monitor your symptoms in case of dangerous changes and offer medications that can ease your discomfort and help with withdrawal. Before you choose a drug detox or alcohol detox program, look into its suitability for the drug you are trying to give up because treatment can vary.
Recovery Meetings Near You in Marysville
After rehab, a time-tested way toward continued sobriety is a fellowship group such as AA, NA, or SMART Recovery. At such meetings, recovering individuals share their struggles and strategies in a process that may be lifelong, substituting a healthy habit for the unwanted ones.
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings
Alcoholics Anonymous, the grandfather of fellowship support groups, was founded in 1935. It has one requirement, which is that members desire to stop drinking. It is, of course, anonymous, using first names only, and there is no charge for meetings at which attendees commit to a 12-step program. The program consists of self-examination, making amends to those harmed by their drinking, and mentoring newcomers as sponsors. AA has more than 2 million members and 118,000 groups worldwide. But does it work? According to one study reported in Scientific American, AA’s model was effective in maintaining sobriety for those who participated long-term. Those receiving alcohol treatment can find several meeting times and locations nearby.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings
Narcotics Anonymous, founded in 1953, follows the fellowship model pioneered by AA, but it is geared toward those trying to stop drug use. In NA groups, members share strategies for coping and for staying sober, committing to helping newcomers and taking courage from hearing the experiences of others. While there are presently no NA meetings in Marysville, nearby towns may offer them.

SMART Recovery Meetings
SMART Recovery, founded in the early 1990s, stands for Self-Management and Recovery Training. Instead of relying on help from a spiritual power, like AA and NA, SMART Recovery takes a scientific approach as followers use motivational, cognitive and behavioral therapy ideas to decide why (and whether) they want to abandon drugs or alcohol. They consider the benefits and resulting problems from using. Meetings are free with over 1,500 weekly meetings taking place worldwide. Since it is a newer option than AA, it may be more difficult to find local meetings, but online meetings are an option if you can’t find one nearby.
Al-Anon and Nar-Anon Meetings
As the drug or alcohol user focuses on fellowship and recovery, family members may struggle with changes in the family. Fellowship meetings for loved ones can be a helpful part of a family’s recovery, as the patient’s loved ones learn coping strategies of their own. Al-Anon caters to family and friends of alcohol-addicted individuals, while Nar-Anon gathers those who are family members affected by drug use. Al-Anon and Nar-Anon use similar 12-step processes to those of AA and NA. Members learn about their loved ones’ addictions and their own reactions to them, as well as the family dynamics that may be involved. While there are no Nar-Anon meetings near Marysville and its surrounds, Al-Anon is an option for those affected by drugs; you might also consider starting a meeting in your area or attending one in the greater Kansas City area. Check with mental health or recovery centers nearby for guidance if you cannot find a suitable group convenient to where you live near Marysville.
