Corvallis Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Corvallis, Oregon is home to Oregon State University and is an hour from the Pacific Coast and two hours from the Cascade Mountains. Corvallis is in the heart of the Willamette Valley and is also the most western town in the lower 48 states with more than 50,000 people.

Corvallis celebrates its appreciation of nature with expansive greenways and parks. The annual Fall Festival of Arts Party is held in Central Park and has been a Corvallis tradition since 1972. The college town also celebrates culture with the yearly Da Vinci Days and the Kinetic Sculpture Race.

But the thrills found in the great outdoors aren’t enough for everyone in Corvallis. An epidemic is ravaging the United States and Corvallis isn’t immune to this health issue. Alcoholism and addiction are ruining lives throughout the nation.

There is a misconception that just because there are medical uses for prescription drugs, they are safe and cannot be misused. This is far from the case. If you have alcohol or drug addiction, you don’t need to suffer anymore. You can seek treatment.

The misuse of alcohol and narcotics is a chronic disease, not a moral failing. Addiction and alcoholism have reoccurrence rates similar to hypertension and diabetes. If you or someone you love is fighting this illness alone, help is here. All you have to do is ask for it.

You’re not alone in this struggle.

Leading facilities, like The Recovery Village make healing possible with empathic staff and the subtle amenities necessary for the transformation to sobriety.

Finding Help in Corvallis

Corvallis, Oregon Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Centers

Recovery for addiction and alcoholism is a long-term process which requires continual maintenance and a commitment to health and well-being. There are three main types of rehabilitation for substance use disorders. These primary treatment options often share many similarities and characteristics while differentiating by where the patients are housed throughout the treatment.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    Residential treatment programs are also commonly referred to as retreat-based therapy or inpatient care. Retreat-based treatment is typically the most successful form of rehabilitation. This success may be attributed to the lack of access to the misused substances while the patient is actively involved in a multifaceted approach to treatment.

  • Connector.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    Partial hospitalization programs require their patients to participate in both individual and group cognitive behavioral counselling. The participant will stay at the clinic during the detoxification phase of their recovery. Once the medical and psychiatric staff determines it’s appropriate for the patient to return home, the participant will commute from home to the clinic for all treatments.

  • Connector.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    Outpatient treatment programs are the most flexible type of facility for individuals seeking treatment for a substance use disorder. Patients will receive comparable therapies found in retreat-based facilities and partial hospitalization treatment programs. However, the participant will not reside at the clinic and will commute for all prescribed treatments.

It doesn’t matter if you opt for an outpatient, partial hospitalization or retreat-based treatment program. An important fact to consider is how detrimental your living environment is to your newborn sobriety. If other people who suffer from a use disorder exist within your immediate purview, it may be much more difficult for you to sustain control over your condition. Inpatient treatment programs are effective because all distractions and temptations are removed from your life. A clean slate at a retreat-based facility can be a powerful way to begin your recovery.

Detox Centers

Detoxification is an important component to sobriety, but detox isn’t a synonym for rehabilitation. Detoxification is the physical process of cleansing the misused substances from your body. Once the toxins are out of your system, then the recuperation can begin.

A substance use disorder is a complex, chronic and varied disease. Substance use disorders are impacted by factors such as heredity, environment, personal circumstances and trauma. There is no known cure for substance use disorders. This illness requires continual attention and an emotional investment in an aftercare community.

Successful recovery for a patient with a substance use disorder isn’t defined by abstaining from the misused chemicals; it does include this abstinence, but relapses are common. A successful recovery is the ability to return to treatment despite mistakes made along the way to health. Detox centers who promise you quick solutions or easy roads to well-being aren’t being honest with you about the reality of this disease.

Detoxification and abstaining from the misused chemicals are important to learning to control a substance use disorder, but the drug and/or alcohol misuse is a symptom of the condition, not the root problem. If you want to live without being reliant on drugs or alcohol, the core of your illness must be addressed. A detox center cannot offer you the long-term treatment necessary for this transformation.

Recovery Meetings Near You

Sustainable sobriety is created by emotionally and physically committing to being present in an aftercare community. Alcoholics Anonymous and SMART Recovery meetings are vital to the rehabilitation of millions of people who struggle with a substance use disorder. Aftercare is the key to achieving balance and well-being.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

In 1935 in Akron, Ohio, Dr. Bob Smith and Bill Wilson began the mutual-aid fellowship, Alcoholics Anonymous. The only requirement to joining the fellowship is a desire to refrain from misusing alcohol. Alcoholics Anonymous is a prolific and the most-widely attended fellowship of its kind with over 60,000 meetings held every year in over 100 countries. Members take the 12 steps and follow the 12 traditions. AA is a non-profit, self-sustaining organization that strenuously avoids affiliations with other institutions or religions which may polarize potential members. Alcoholics Anonymous has a spiritual foundation but doesn’t latch onto any particular dogma or faith.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Narcotics Anonymous meetings are a natural evolution to Alcoholics Anonymous. As the epidemic of substance use disorders grows and spreads across the United States, the prevalence and need for Narcotics Anonymous grows as well. Members of Narcotics Anonymous adopt the 12 steps and 12 traditions found in Alcoholics Anonymous. NA is a mutual aid fellowship and a non-profit organization that relies on community centers and churches to house their confidential meetings.

SMART Recovery Meetings

SMART Recovery is a newer form of mutual-aid fellowship. SMART Recovery has a scientific foundation, unlike Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings which operate from a spiritual base. SMART is an acronym for Self-Management for Addiction Recovery Training. There are four main focuses in SMART Recovery meetings:

  1. Maintain and enhance the purpose for refraining from misusing substances.
  2. Manage urges and impulses.
  3. Productively learn to cope with the feelings, thoughts and behaviors which exacerbate the use disorder.
  4. Learn life-style balance between immediate and lasting enjoyments.

SMART Recovery meetings engage in conversations instead of testimonials to the entire group. If you’re interested in joining a SMART Recovery meeting get in touch with the facilitator prior to attending to make sure the group is appropriate for your needs.

Getting away from an enabling environment and the wide availability of a misused substance may be the most efficient way to recuperate. Taking a break from the stresses and strains of daily life to a place where you can focus on your health, and only concentrate on getting well, may increase the chances for successful recovery. Imagine your use disorder was cancer. Now imagine the only way to defeat the cancer meant travelling away from home for a determined period of time so experts could treat and monitor your illness. A substance use disorder is as serious as cancer. If you can take the time to concentrate only on your health, take it.
