Minto Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

When people think about Minot, North Dakota, they think of attractions like the Taube Museum of Art, the Scandinavian Heritage Park and the Roosevelt Park Zoo. Most people do not consider that a number of the residents of Minot are plagued by drug and alcohol addiction.

It isn’t just illegal substances like heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine that are problems. Legal substances like alcohol do just as much damage. Between 2009 and 2013 in North Dakota, about 48,000 people over the age of 12 (8.5% of the population in this age group) were misusers of alcohol.

Because there is such a stigma against addiction treatment, many people find it difficult to ask for help. However, if you are struggling with substance misuse, you don’t have to endure the pain anymore.

Addiction is a disease that needs to be treated. If you are looking for drug addiction treatment in Minot, North Dakota, there are many different resources that are available to you.

Finding Help in Minto

Minto Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Centers

For those who wish to be treated at a rehab, there are three different treatment programs you have to choose from. You might find that you need a partial hospitalization program, a residential treatment program or an outpatient treatment program. Learning more about the three different programs is the best thing to do when you are deciding which treatment program you want to try.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    Patients who need to first detox and then be where they are able to have 24/7 medical care from healthcare professionals will be a good fit for inpatient treatment. This can also be called residential treatment because the patients live at the facility. They will have therapy (group and individual) and substance misuse courses.

  • Connector.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    Patients who are in need of a structured curriculum but do not need a stable living environment or 24/7 medical care will be a good fit for partial hospitalization programs or PHPs.

  • Connector.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    Patients who have a lot of family or work commitments and do not have as severe of an addiction are a good fit for outpatient treatment. Because outpatient treatment is not as intensive, you will need to be in a place where you are at a low risk of relapsing.

It may be difficult to sift through all of your options when you are looking into drug or alcohol rehab centers near you.

Detox Centers

You will need to detox before you start a treatment program. In a detox center, you can receive medical assistance while you are ridding your body of harmful substances. There may be painful withdrawal symptoms if you are stopping alcohol, benzodiazepines or other substances. With medical supervision, you will be more comfortable so that you can endure the detox process and get to your next phase of treatment.

In a detox center, however, you will only get medical assistance with the detox process. You will not get the group therapy, individual therapy, substance misuse courses or other healing activities like yoga or meditation. These things get to the root of your substance use disorder, and without them, relapse is very likely.

Recovery Meetings Near You

While completing inpatient treatment programs, partial hospitalization programs and/or outpatient treatment programs is certainly an excellent start, you will only maintain your long-term recovery if you join up with a recovery group like SMART Recovery or Narcotics Anonymous. Here are the options for meetings in Minot.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

Alcoholics Anonymous is the original 12-step program and the largest recovery group in the world. Currently, there are meetings in over 170 countries, and there are over 100,000 active groups. AA is the most trusted and respected recovery group with the best success rate. Meetings are an open and honest discussion that provides a supportive environment to those alcoholics who are trying to get sober.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

In 1953, nearly two decades after AA was founded, people began to see the need for a 12-step organization for those who struggled with drug addiction, not just alcohol addiction. NA uses the same 12 steps as AA, also asking members to turn to a higher power. NA is the second largest recovery group in the world with meetings in over 130 countries.

SMART Recovery Meetings
