Addiction Treatment In Hernando, MS

If you’re seeking addiction treatment in Hernando, the most important thing is to find treatment that takes a holistic approach or one that is tailored to your individual needs.

A one-size-fits-all approach is never the best choice for addiction treatment. Everyone is different and the keys to lasting change are not the same for all. You need individualized care. Be sure that the facility you choose takes a whole-person approach to recovery.

Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs

The most important thing when detoxing from alcohol or drugs is your safety. Withdrawal can have some serious side effects. That’s why you should consider professional care during the detox and withdrawal process.

That care could take place in an inpatient or outpatient setting. Regardless of the setting, detox programs do not treat addiction but help you prepare for a rehab program.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

The biggest draw for inpatient addiction treatment is the 24-hour supervision that is involved. A higher level of focus and care leads to better outcomes and lower relapse rates.

Questions About Treatment?

Call now to be connected with one of our compassionate treatment specialists.

In inpatient care you’ll experience a wide range of treatment methods. The best facilities will customize your treatment according to your individual needs. Your stay could be short or long, depending on your needs and wishes.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment has several qualities that on the surface look appealing. It usually costs less and you return home each evening, allowing you a greater degree of freedom.

However, there are downsides to outpatient treatment. The need to travel to and from the facility each day can be burdensome on you or your caregiver. If you don’t have a strong network of support, your chances of success with outpatient addiction treatment diminish greatly.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is a highly specialized form of addiction treatment. Other methods may use medication, but MAT always does so. MAT combines strategic medication use with both behavioral psychology and counseling.

Most frequently, medication-assisted treatment is used with patients struggling with alcohol dependence or opioid use disorder. If that’s you, talk to us about whether MAT is right for you.

Aftercare & Alumni Services

It’s important for anyone in recovery to have robust aftercare and alumni services as a part of their support.

Quality addiction treatment programs will offer these, including the following:

  • employment resources
  • long-term housing resources
  • 12-step programs
  • short-term sober-living facilities
  • peer groups and support

Length Of Addiction Treatment

The length of addiction treatment can vary depending on many elements, including addiction type, personality, health, and more.

Most treatment programs fall into the following lengths:

  • 30 days
  • 60 days
  • 90 days
  • 120 days
  • A year (or longer)

How To Pay For Treatment

Anyone who has health insurance should start there because most insurances cover some addiction treatment costs. Many people cover some of their costs out-of-pocket, as well.

Also consider assistance programs available through the Mississippi Department of Mental Health.
