Olympia Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Addiction is a national problem that destroys individuals and families of all incomes, races and backgrounds. The small city of Olympia is no different. The Department of Health in the state of Washington released 2015 data on its website that shows although there is a decline of deaths attributed to prescription drugs in the community, heroin-related overdose deaths have doubled.

Opioid misuse has reached epidemic proportions. Those dying from prescription drug overdose fall into the 45-54-year-old range, while those succumbing to heroin overdose deaths fall into the 25-34-year-old range. In addition to tightening prescription drug guidelines, the city of Olympia is attempting to help its citizens by offering recovery services for those who are suffering from drug and/or alcohol addiction.

Finding Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Olympia, Washington

Olympia, Washington Alcohol Rehab and Drug Rehab Centers

When you are seeking treatment for your substance use disorder in Olympia, Washington, you will have numerous choices. How can you determine what the most effective choice is for you? How can you determine whether you need a treatment program that lasts 30 days, 60 days or 90 days? How can you decide whether to do an inpatient treatment program or outpatient treatment program? The first thing to do is become more familiar with the three treatment programs you have to choose from.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    In an inpatient or residential treatment program, patients have typically completed any necessary detox before beginning the program. They stay in the facility and are monitored by healthcare professionals and addiction specialists 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They participate in a rehabilitation curriculum that may involve counseling (in a group or one on one), classes on substance misuse, cognitive behavioral therapy, 12-step work, alternative recovery methods and recreational and healing activities like tennis, yoga and meditation.

  • Connector.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    In a partial hospitalization program, patients are in the facility all day and they have access to medical care while they are there for 6 to 8 hours during the day, but they go home or to on-campus housing in the evenings. The same rehabilitation curriculum of counseling (in a group or one on one), classes on substance misuse, cognitive behavioral therapy, 12-step work, alternative recovery methods and recreational and healing activities like tennis, yoga and meditation will be included.

  • Connector.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    In an outpatient treatment program, patients stay at the facility for 10 to 15 hours a week. These patients are typically not in need of medical care, but they do have access to healthcare professionals and addiction specialists. The same rehabilitation curriculum of counseling (in a group or one on one), classes on substance misuse, cognitive behavioral therapy, 12-step work, alternative recovery methods and recreational and healing activities like tennis, yoga and meditation will be included, though in a less intensive schedule.

Many people who want to seek treatment for a substance use disorder will want to stay close to home. Others will elect to visit a national network of rehabilitation facilities like The Recovery Village, and this may be the wiser choice. Giving yourself the distance, space and time to focus solely on healing can be really beneficial to your overall recovery.

Detox Centers

Before you can begin a treatment program, you may need to go through a detox program. This is especially true for patient who are coming off of opiates like heroin, oxycodone or hydrocodone. Withdrawal symptoms may be extremely painful if you do not have the medical assistance that will be provided to you at a detox center or rehabilitation facility.

You should keep in mind, though, that it is always better to attend a full-service rehabilitation facility like The Recovery Village that includes any necessary detox than it is to just attend a detox center, whose services are going to be limited. Without participating in an inpatient treatment program – which are not offered at detox centers – you will only have treated the physical side of your substance misuse, not the psychological, mental, emotional or spiritual aspect of it.

Recovery Meetings Near You

There are many phases to a long-term recovery path. After you go through a Washington detox program (or a program in any other state), inpatient treatment and/or outpatient treatment, it is imperative that you follow up your treatment with recovery meetings like those of Alcoholics Anonymous or SMART Recovery. Whether you receive Olympia, WA, drug rehab or alcohol rehab, these facilities typically can provide information about these meetings. Here are the options for you in the Olympia area:

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

Founded in Akron, Ohio by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith in 1935, Alcoholics Anonymous has been helping millions of people all over the world for over 8 decades. With a proven track record for success, AA is a fellowship of men and women who share their experiences and lean on each other for support at meetings. AA meetings provide members with an open, honest and supportive environment where they are able to express their feelings and share their experiences with each other. After a patient receives alcohol treatment, Olympia rehab centers can provide information about AA meetings to help keep them sober. Here are three meetings near you.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Though they haven’t been around for quite as long as they were founded in 1953, Narcotics Anonymous is the 12-step group for those who suffer from addiction to other substances besides alcohol like marijuana, opiates, psychedelics, prescription medication, methamphetamine or cocaine. While each of these substances has its own 12-step group, none of these groups are as big as the all-encompassing Narcotics Anonymous. After receiving treatment from an Olympia drug rehab center (or any other location), you can take advantage of these meetings so you can stay in recovery. Here are three NA meetings in Olympia:
