Finding Help in Bismarck

Bismarck Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers

If you are interested in going to a rehab, you will have three different treatment programs to choose from. Some patients will need inpatient treatment whereas some will need outpatient treatment. When you are considering which treatment program to choose, the first thing you need to do is familiarize yourself with your choices.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    In an inpatient (residential) treatment program, the patient lives at the facility 24 hours a day. They also have access to medical care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If a patient needs to detox first, the detox process will usually be complete before they begin this program.

  • Connector.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    In a partial hospitalization program (PHP), the patient stays at the facility for 6 to 8 hours a day. They also have access to medical supervision when they are at the facility. Patients in a PHP still participate in everything residential patients participate in, but they go home in the evening.

  • Connector.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    In an outpatient treatment program, the patient is at the facility for 10 to 15 hours a week. This is a good fit for patients who have a lot of work duties or family commitments.

Detox Centers

Before you can start a treatment program, you will need to detox. It’s important that your body is rid of all of the harmful substances that it has become dependent on. When you are detoxing from certain substances like Xanax or hydrocodone, there will be more painful withdrawal symptoms than other substances like marijuana or cocaine. In order to prevent relapse, pain or danger, it’s beneficial to get medical assistance through this process. You can receive this at a detox center.

The real work of recovery does not begin in a detox center, however, because detox centers don’t offer inpatient treatment programs. While detoxing is an important part of the process of recovering from a drug or alcohol addiction, it is only one step. You need to follow it up with a complete treatment program.
