Round Rock Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Round Rock has grown since its humble beginnings as an Ice Age settlement around 9,200 BC. The community earned its present name because of a large round rock that juts out of nearby Brushy Creek at a frontier-era wagon crossing. Today, thanks to Round Rock’s status as the international headquarters of Dell, traffic on I-35 can be a real challenge even without rocks in the way. Round Rock has an excellent school system and an involved community, both of which have earned the town several awards as a “best place to live in America” finalist.

From outward appearances, Round Rock is a lovely and prosperous community just north of Austin. But there’s a secret in Round Rock that some people don’t want to talk about. That secret is the widespread abuse of drugs and alcohol by people from all walks of life in the community. The national trend of more drug overdose deaths has hit Texas, too. Dangerous street drugs including black-market heroin and fentanyl have pushed the overdose death rate to unseen levels, with fentanyl-related deaths across the country increasing 73 percent over years past.

The truth is simple if you have a drug or alcohol use disorder. Without help, you risk continuing to misuse drugs or alcohol. No matter how long you’ve been using, how many times you’ve been to rehab or how low you feel about yourself, there is someone who has been in your shoes. And many of those “someones” beat their substance addictions with the right resources and professionals to guide them. Explore this guide to find Round Rock, TX drug rehab and Round Rock, TX alcohol rehab options. Then make a commitment to seek the help you need to begin your recovery journey.

You’re not alone in this struggle.

Finding Help in Round Rock

Round Rock, Texas Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Centers

The best treatment type for your substance misuse will fall into one of three categories. Inpatient residential treatment is like a hospital stay. Partial hospitalization is like a “day camp” hospital experience where you sleep in your own bed each night. Outpatient recovery programs are less time-consuming and allow you to work and go to school as you follow your treatment plan. Each type of recovery program has its merits and drawbacks.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    If you long to get away from the people and situations that offer you easy access to drugs or alcohol, a residential treatment program is the way to go. It allows you to step away from your bad-choice reality so that you can recharge your “good-choice” maker. Your basic needs are met so that you don’t have to cook and clean the kitchen when you barely feel like getting out of bed. You’re expected to follow a schedule of counseling, therapy and education, but you also have free time to journal. You may use medications that are prescribed to you for other ailments or to aid in your recovery.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    You follow a daily structure in a partial hospitalization program and may attend group gatherings with residential treatment patients in some settings. The partial hospitalization option is a good one if you and your partner depend on each other or if you get anxiety or fear sleeping away from home. You must make a commitment to stay far away from people and situations that offer you access to drugs and alcohol during your program dates. As with the residential treatment programs, your plan may take anywhere from one to six months to successfully complete, depending on your particular substance-misuse circumstances.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    In the outpatient setting, you can continue to earn a living or a degree. There are mandatory health exams, classroom meetings and counseling sessions, but they can be scheduled around your other obligations in many cases. You must be strong enough to resist temptations when you’re away from the treatment facility. However, the outpatient options allow many people the opportunity to do something about their substance misuse without completely disrupting their lives or the lives of their family members.

Take some time to decide which Round Rock drug rehab center or Round Rock alcohol rehab center will work best for you. Discuss the options with your family or household members. Many workplaces offer leave or sabbaticals for drug and alcohol rehab programs, and the company may even help fund your treatment. Choose the type of recovery program you believe will yield the best chance of success. If you know you’ll want to leave after a few days of residential treatment because you’ll miss your dog, then opt for the partial hospitalization program. On the other hand, if you know your substance-using friends will stop by the house while you’re in an outpatient program, consider an inpatient drug-use treatment plan. That way, you’re transported from situations where you might make bad choices.

Detox Centers

Have you tried to quit drugs or alcohol cold turkey? Some people manage to stop missing substances by suddenly ending their use of drugs or alcohol. Other people have a really difficult time abruptly stopping their misuse of substances. It’s no wonder — one of the predictable side effects of chronic alcohol abuse, and the misuse of drugs like benzodiazepine — is the development of life-threatening physical conditions when the patient isn’t slowly weaned from these substances. This is why even the most innocent church organist can’t stop taking prescription opioids, no matter how often cold-turkey methods have been attempted. It’s much safer and more effective to undergo professional detoxification at a qualified Round Rock drug detox or Round Rock alcohol detox treatment facility. Call The Recovery Village today to get answers to all of your questions and concerns about detox methods and monitoring. Some patients are offered medications to help with withdrawal symptoms including pain, nausea and anxiety.

Recovery Meetings Near You

Whether you would like to attend recovery meetings that are open to the public or you want to find a group that offers private group meetings, there are social organizations that help people with drug and alcohol use disorders. These groups have been around for nearly a century, providing a safe space for struggling people to find hope, encouragement and a new plan. Recovery groups can be instrumental in your success after you complete drug rehab in Round Rock, Texas or alcohol rehab in Round Rock, Texas. Below is a list of effective, welcoming recovery organizations that hold meetings in and around Round Rock.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

At an AA meeting, you meet people from all occupations, ethnicities and faith traditions. The one thing that all members have in common is the desire to stop drinking alcohol of any kind. You may be assigned an AA buddy, called a sponsor, who will be available to help you vent and get through the tough times. Sponsors will even come to your family gatherings to help you stay focused on your recovery goals. AA groups vary, so try out a few of the groups in Round Rock and surrounding areas before committing to a single organization.

You’ll find these things at Al-Anon meetings, primarily for loved ones of those who abuse alcohol, and at Nar-Anon meetings for people who have loved ones with any type of drug use disorder.
