Drug, Alcohol, Detox and Treatment Resources

Located in the High Plains of southeastern New Mexico, Roswell is a small town with a big history. Its flat grasslands support a thriving ranching industry. Its clear skies provide excellent conditions for star gazing at night. Its connection to the crash of a UFO attracts visitors interested in UFO phenomena. In fact, the city capitalizes on this interest with alien-themed attractions and a McDonald’s built in the shape of a flying saucer.

The sites in Roswell may be out of this world, but alcohol and drug abuse in the area is a very real problem. A nationwide survey revealed that New Mexico’s teens have the second highest consumption rate of cocaine and ecstasy in the nation. They also report consuming methamphetamine and heroin at alarming rates. This same trend is visible in other age groups and spans all socio-economic levels, sparking concern among police and community leaders who want to stop the effects addiction has on the entire community.

You don’t have to continue living in the grip of drugs or alcohol or watch someone you love struggle with addiction. All you have to do is take the first step to learn more about treatment options available.

Finding Help & Recovery in Roswell, NM

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Roswell, New Mexico

If you’re ready to break free of the substance abuse controlling your life, you may feel overwhelmed and embarrassed. Fortunately, you don’t have to face this alone. There are different types of treatment available at Roswell drug rehab programs and Roswell alcohol rehab programs. At the centers, you can find the support your need from medical professionals and others who understand what you’re going through and have the training to show you how to change your behaviors and develop new life skills. These programs include full-time and partial hospitalization programs as well as outpatient services.

Residential Treatment Programs

At a residential treatment program, you stay at the rehab center full-time, including overnight. During the day, you work with a team of professionals who use a multi-disciplinary approach to the recovery process. In most cases you attend group and individual therapy sessions, support groups, and classes where you learn how to change the behaviors that led to your addiction. Many programs also include recreational activities like sports and art classes.

Partial Hospitalization Programs

Partial hospitalization programs give you more flexibility than full-time residential programs. In these programs, you spend your day at the treatment facility participating in the same programs as the residential patients, including therapy sessions and classes. At night, you have the ability to go home to spend time with your friends and family or deal with other obligations.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

For many people, the final step in a treatment plan includes a transition to outpatient programs. These programs give you the greatest flexibility, allowing you to schedule your therapy sessions and classes around your schedule. You show up at the facility only when you have an appointment or class to attend. This lets you continue your treatment plan while you take care of your daily responsibilities.

Ultimately, you have to choose the treatment program that best meets your needs and supports you through the entire recovery process. Speak with the staff. Be honest about your addiction history. Ask questions about the program. Talk to them about the type of treatment they think will work best for you. Make sure you feel comfortable with the staff and have confidence in the program. You spend a considerable amount of time with them over the course of your treatment.
