Finding Help in Longview

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Longview, Texas

Longview is fighting along with the rest of Texas to stop the spread of substance misuse, and help those struggling with addiction get into a treatment program and on the road to ending their dependence on drugs and alcohol. Prescription opioid use in most Texas counties is growing fast, along with heroin, and the threat now includes fentanyl. The prescription-strength painkiller is 50 to 100 times stronger than morphine, and 30 to 50 times more powerful than heroin.

Unfortunately, the work to reduce the number of prescriptions has also sent many legitimate users to the black market when their doctors cut off their supply. Unable to stop using, they turn to a cheaper alternative with a much bigger high: heroin. The biggest danger is that it’s easier to overdose on heroin and fentanyl. But it doesn’t have to end that way. Many places can help, drug and alcohol treatment. The following treatment facilities are the most common and effective options for helping people overcome addiction.

Longview Residential Treatment Programs

There are two types of residential treatment programs. The most common is the short three- to six-week program that uses intense cognitive and behavioral therapy. Most facilities use a combination of individual counseling and group sessions. Individual therapy addresses your addictions and any underlying mental health conditions that may contribute to substance misuse, as well as strategies to cope with cravings. These are intense, highly restrictive hospitalizations, and patients attend several meetings per day during treatment. The other type of residential care is less restrictive, and in a community setting. Patients spend a minimum of six months in these programs. While in treatment, they take part in sobriety groups, attend individual therapy sessions and meet regularly with someone who oversees the patients’ progress and adjusts the program as necessary. Long-term residential treatment also includes skills training to help you ease into your home community with the tools you need to be successful in your recovery.

Partial Hospitalization Programs

Some people in rehabilitation need longer to heal and find their way to sobriety. Partial hospitalization, also known as a day treatment program, helps patients transition slowly into their home communities. These facilities are less restrictive than either type of residential facility, but still offer the structure that many patients find helpful in their recovery.

Longview Outpatient Treatment Programs

The least restrictive programs are held in outpatient centers. You can enter this type of program if you have commitments to family or work that prevent you from committing to a full hospitalization or day treatment program. This is also a good choice if you are transitioning from a residential facility and need the extra support during your re-entry into the community. Here you will attend as many group and individual sessions as you need during the week until you are able to sustain sobriety on your own.

Choosing the right type of rehab facility for your addiction is a major step in your recovery. Review the different programs and ask questions before making a decision that affects your future. Learn about the type of treatment, the evidence that supports the program, how the facility adapts to patients’ changing needs and what kind of aftercare is offered.

Longview Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

Detoxification is a vital part of your recovery. Before you can learn to live without alcohol and drugs, you need to rid your body of them. As the substances leave your body, you will experience withdrawal symptoms that can vary in severity. By attending a hospital setting, like a drug or alcohol detox center with a full medical staff to monitor your vitals, it will be easier to get through the detox process. This has been shown to increase the chances of a successful recovery.

Recovery Meetings Near You

Once you are back in your daily routine from a Longview drug rehab center or a Longview alcohol rehabcenter, you will need to continue to work on your sobriety goals. You may or may not have a close network of support between friends and family, and that’s okay. That’s where recovery meetings come into play. Even if you do have people who love you and want to understand you, often the only other people who you can truly relate are those who have gone through a similar experience. Meeting those in your community who understand your struggles can be an empowering experience that reminds you that you are not alone.

It helps you feel connected to others, and it helps you stay on track with your sobriety goals.
