Centralia, Washington, is in Lewis County. Originally a railroad town, Centralia at one point had five railroad lines including the Union Pacific Railroad, Northern Pacific Railway, Milwaukee Road, Great Northern Railroad and another short line. Centralia is also home to Centralia College, which is the oldest junior college in continuous operation in the state of Washington.
Lewis County, where Centralia is located, is the sixth largest county in Washington.
Unfortunately, Lewis County and Centralia do feel the effects of substance abuse, including the opioid epidemic. For example, in August 2017, Lewis County law enforcement officials began carrying the opioid overdose reversal drug Narcan because of upticks in opioid overdoses in the area.
For people who live in Centralia and nearby, drug and alcohol detox and rehab resources are available and can help them overcome addiction to drugs and alcohol, and remain in recovery.
Centralia Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation and Treatment
Some of the different types of programs available not necessarily in Centralia, but generally to help someone struggling with drugs or alcohol include:
- Individual counseling or therapy
- 12-step programs
- Other support and recovery groups aside from 12-step programs
- Inpatient rehab including short- and long-term residential treatment
- Outpatient rehab including intensive outpatient programs
- Partial hospitalization programs
- Non-profit organizations
It’s important for people in Centralia to know there are local resources, but also statewide Washington rehab centers, and out-of-state rehab and treatment centers.
Drug and Alcohol Detox Programs and Treatment Centers in Centralia
For most people who struggle with drugs or alcohol, treatment may occur along a continuum of care, meaning there are different steps in a treatment process. For example, someone’s treatment for addiction may include:
- A supervised detox program to help manage to symptoms of withdrawal and ensure they don’t become life-threatening
- An inpatient, residential treatment program during the earliest stages of recovery
- Once completing a higher level of intensive care a person may begin a lower level of care such as outpatient rehab
- Continuing recovery support and maintenance in a support group such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous
Of course, everyone and their treatment needs are unique, so the above is an example of what a continuum of care could include.
Centralia, WA Residential Treatment Programs
Ten programs offering residential treatment are currently available within 50 miles of Centralia. The Recovery Village Ridgefield is also in Washington state and offers a variety of residential treatment programs, as well as onsite medical detox.
Residential treatment, or inpatient alcohol rehab or drug addiction treatment, offers a high level of care where patients live in the treatment facility. They participate in programming throughout the day at the inpatient rehab facility, including group therapy and one-on-one therapy. Most residential treatment programs also include recreational therapy and holistic care.
Centralia Partial Hospitalization Programs
A partial hospitalization program (PHP) has many of the same types of treatment and therapy as is offered in residential treatment. The difference is that when people are in a PHP, they may return home each evening as treatment ends, depending on the facility’s requirements. In some cases, when their home environment isn’t substance-free or safe, they may go to a sober living home.
The Recovery Village Ridgefield offers partial hospitalization programs, and six programs are also within a 50-mile radius of Centralia with partial hospitalization or day treatment.
Centralia Outpatient Treatment Programs
An outpatient treatment program is one where a participant can continue living their daily life, including attending school or work. They also add daytime attendance to a treatment program into their weekly schedule. Some people may begin with outpatient treatment, but for someone with a more severe or long-term addiction, outpatient rehab may be part of their program after completing a higher level of care.
Four outpatient detox programs are currently offered within 50 miles of Centralia. Within 25 miles, there are 20 general outpatient drug treatment programs for substance abuse. The Recovery Village Ridgefield offers outpatient treatment, including intensive outpatient programs (IOP).
