    Residential Treatment Programs

    Sometimes an immersion program is the best way to begin. Residential treatment programs might start with detoxification to treat the patient with medical supervision, attention to any other medical or psychological problems, including nutrition, depression or anxiety, and therapy for individuals, couples or families. In addition to one-on-one counseling, the patient likely will attend group therapy. Other forms of therapy and relaxation might include art, music or even aromatherapy. Medication may play a role in pain control. Staff members will monitor the patient for health problems and any potential relapse in using drugs or alcohol. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, programs that are 90 days or longer are most effective.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    For some patients, partial hospitalization programs may be the best of both worlds. Patients spend up to six hours a day in treatment. They receive similar medical care and monitoring, learn coping strategies as do the patients in full hospitalization and participate in individual, group and family therapy. Without overnight stays, it may be less costly and allow more flexibility for the patient and his family.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    Outpatient therapy is a third option. By maintaining regularly scheduled appointments on an outpatient basis, patients who wish to continue with school or a job can receive similar treatment with individual counseling, group counseling and medical monitoring.

The individual’s needs determine whether treatment involves hospitalization or an outpatient program. Either way, help is available at various Katy alcohol rehab and Katy drug rehab centers. If you or a loved one is concerned about drug or alcohol use, take the first step by calling an expert, such as one at The Recovery Village, for advice on substance abuse counseling options.

Detox Centers

When you’ve decided to choose sobriety, detoxification is the first step so that your body can be drug-free as you recover. Suddenly stopping drinking or using drugs can be more than uncomfortable. It can be dangerous, and it shouldn’t be attempted without medical supervision. A detox facility will help with this first step toward sobriety. Alcohol drug detox may include symptoms from 24 to 72 hours after the last drink. After initial withdrawal and its physical symptoms, patients receive help with anxiety and mood disorders that may follow; this second phase may take a week or longer.

With drug use, detox will depend on the drug. Immediate physical symptoms of withdrawing from heroin and prescription painkillers might include acute symptoms for 24 to 48 hours. Withdrawal from benzodiazepines or cocaine might involve longer-lasting symptoms. In Katy, TX drug detox or Katy, TX alcohol detox, doctors will monitor your progress, watch for any health complications and be able to administer appropriate medications that can ease your detox symptoms. When detox is accomplished, you’ll be on the path toward sobriety; people helping you through treatment can guide you toward resources that will lessen the chance of relapse and multiply your opportunities for success and sobriety.

Recovery Meetings Near You

Whether sobriety is initially achieved through a detox process followed by inpatient or outpatient therapy, support meetings can be an important part of recovery. Alcoholics Anonymous, founded in the 1930s, has led the way for millions of members. Narcotics Anonymous followed with support for drug users in the 1950s. SMART Recovery, which takes a different approach than AA’s spiritual one, was founded in 1994. Take a look at the philosophies and traditions of these groups as you decide which would best suit your needs.

Whichever type of meeting works best for you, meetings can be an important component of recovery after detox and treatment. Experts at The Recovery Village can answer any questions you may have in your treatment follow-up.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

With 1.2 million members and 55,000 groups in the United States alone, Alcoholics Anonymous has written the book on 12-step programs and self-help gatherings. Its fellowship encourages followers to rely on a spiritual power as they work their way through the steps, which are intended to lead to greater self-awareness, a compassion for those who have been affected by their drinking and a commitment to later mentoring (as a sponsor) those who are newer to AA. Many studies have been conducted about AA’s effectiveness in sobriety maintenance. While some studies are inconclusive, others show a clear connection between regular meeting attendance and continued abstinence over the years.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

With the same philosophies and similar traditions to AA, Narcotics Anonymous helps members avoid drug use. A 2008 study compared drug users who did and didn’t attend NA meetings, and found that after five years of attending, abstinence from opiates was increased. More frequent attendance at meetings was associated with more abstinence.

SMART Recovery Meetings

For those who want to build on recovery from alcohol or drug use but don’t want to attend AA or NA, SMART Recovery is an alternative. Instead of reliance on a higher power, SMART members work toward continued sobriety by using a science-based approach. This includes cognitive and motivational therapy, which encourages members to compare the costs and benefits of continuing to use drugs. Some members appreciate the group’s lack of mention of powerlessness. It puts personal responsibility in the forefront. Since SMART has only been around since the 1990s, not as much research has been done on its effectiveness. SMART Recovery, which stands for Self-Management and Recovery Training, also has a Web-based course to complement or replace in-person meetings. While no SMART Recovery meetings are within Katy itself, several are a short drive away in Houston and other cities, including these.
