Paris Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Unfortunately, this idyllic Texas town is not immune to the sad effects of alcohol and substance abuse.

Prescription pain medications may be abused by people who would otherwise never touch drugs.

No one has to suffer alone. If you or someone you love is struggling with drug or alcohol misuse, there is help available, including drug rehab in Paris, TX and alcohol rehab in Paris, TX. This guide is a brief introduction to the various types of recovery treatments available for you.

Finding Help in Paris

Paris, Texas Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Centers

    Residential Treatment Programs

    In a residential treatment program for alcohol or substance abuse, you are an inpatient of the facility where the treatment takes place. Your daily needs are met so you can focus completely on getting well and learning how to make the best choices for your life. Substance abuse is all-consuming and exhausting for some people. At a residential facility, you attend classes, individual and group therapy. Your treatment is led by competent and experienced professionals.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    A partial hospitalization program entails attending daily classes, having medical tests, talking to doctors and participating in therapy sessions. You do most of the activities that the residential treatment patients do, but you go home at night. The partial hospitalization option is a good plan for functional substance abusers who want to care for people or pets. It helps to maintain the important personal connections as patients work through their recovery paths.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    An outpatient substance abuse program is a practical and wise plan to enter after you finish your detoxification program. Outpatient recovery plans provide the most freedom and autonomy of the recovery programs. If you must continue at school or your place of employment, outpatient programs can make allowances for you to do so. You maintain important connections to your loved ones — connections that are key to your long-term success in avoiding drugs and alcohol. You have requirements to meet in an outpatient program, and you must accept accountability for your mistakes. In return, you receive support and encouragement you may not find in other areas of your daily life.

You know yourself better than anyone. You know which types of learning and behavior-modification programs work for you. Research the various types of treatment and rehabilitation programs available for substance use disorder before you make up your mind. Your insurance coverage and access to resources also play a role in which Paris drug rehab center or Paris alcohol rehab center you’d like to attend. In addition, consider nationwide centers like The Recovery Village, which offers comprehensive care for a wide range of substance use disorders.

Detox Centers

People who want to quit abusing substances — including benzodiazepine, alcohol, heroin and opioid-based pain pills — often go through detoxification (detox) programs to rid their bodies of the substances. When you enter a Paris drug detox or Paris alcohol detox program, you fill out an intake form and work with a counselor and team to form a detox strategy. The plan meets your physical needs and you’re monitored for the duration of the program. Detox programs may take a week or longer, depending on the severity of your condition and the substances you are abusing. You may be administered medication to ease your symptoms and cravings while you clear your system of drugs or alcohol. The Recovery Village has several facilities around the U.S. and close by in Texas.

Recovery Meetings Near You

It’s important that you maintain some social connections after your treatment program is completed. Recovery meetings are great places for non-judgmental interaction and group support. As you work to continue making positive choices, recovery groups help you maintain focus and hold yourself accountable. Your milestones and anniversaries are celebrated by the group as the very real expressions of hard work and discipline those dates truly represent. Find recovery meetings in and around Paris, Texas to help you after your detox and substance abuse treatment.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

AA meetings are a lifeline to people who want to stop abusing alcohol. Through shared stories, tips and events, members build new relationships and try to mend broken relationships. Groups are self-sustaining. Open and private meetings are held all over the world. AA meetings fill the void left by holiday celebrations you can’t attend. They help you prepare for family events you do plan to attend. Work through the 12 steps to advance your recovery, and learn how to make good choices for the future.
