Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Grand Forks, North Dakota

For your convenience, alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers provide three different programs of treatment. At most facilities, residential treatment programs, partial hospitalization programs and outpatient treatment programs will be offered. Familiarizing yourself with all of your options is the best way you can determine which treatment program will be effective for you.

Residential Treatment Programs

Patients in residential or inpatient treatment are typically the patients who have a more severe addiction and need intensive care. They will stay at the facility overnight so that they may have access to 24/7 medical supervision. Usually, if a patient is in need of detox, they will enroll in this program after detox is complete.

Partial Hospitalization Programs

Patients in a PHP are usually the patients that have a less severe addiction than residential patients. They will be at the treatment center during the day but be allowed to go home to a stable, safe environment at night. They will typically have access to medical supervision while they are in the facility.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

Patients in an outpatient treatment program are usually the patients with the milder addictions. Sometimes these are patients who have progressed through residential treatment or a partial hospitalization. These are sometimes patients with a lot of work and family commitments as they only spend 10 to 15 hours at the facility per week.

It might be a little overwhelming to choose the right facility. Many patients have had success with our treatment programs.

Detox Centers

Detoxification is a necessary step in the beginning of your recovery. Before you can start a treatment program, you must rid your body of the harmful substances that you have become addicted to. For some substances (marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamine), detoxing is as simple as stopping the substance, but for others (opioids, benzodiazepines and alcohol), there are painful withdrawal symptoms. For this reason, you need medical supervision to go through the detox process, which is why many people elect to go to a detox center.

The downside of a detox center, however, is that it will not offer you inpatient treatment programs. While you will rid your body of the substance, you will not treat the root of the addiction and relapse is highly likely.
