Addiction Treatment In Ridgeland, MS

Addition affects each person differently. Drug use changes the structure of the brain, and those changes last even after you undergo treatment. It’s believed that these lasting changes are behind the cycle of use so many see.

An effective treatment program will include aftercare or alumni services to help lower the risk of relapse. As you consider your options, always take your individual needs into account.

Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs

During detox, your body withdraws from the drug it is dependent on and you’ll experience side effects that are unpleasant and, in some cases, dangerous.

A detox program allows you to go through the process with supervision and support. Entering a detox program means you get medical treatment to keep you comfortable and to lower the impact of those side effects.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Inpatient or residential services provide a live-in and supervised environment for treatment. While a resident at a treatment center, you live with others in recovery and attend group therapy to provide support. You will likely undergo individual counseling, as well.

An inpatient program provides various types of treatment methods, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). They may also offer life-skills training that includes nutritional education and exercise programs.

Outpatient Addiction Treatment

As the name suggests, outpatient services allow you to stay home while you go through treatment. You will travel to the facility for both individual counseling and group therapy.

Outpatient treatment is offered at different levels, too. The basic level may be mostly peer support and drug education. Intensive outpatient is closer to inpatient programs except you live with family or friends. Outpatient treatment requires a healthy home support system to work.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is a combination of medication and behavioral therapy. With MAT, the medication helps to curb cravings and to reduce the risk of drug use. Behavioral modification therapy works to change the behaviors that can trigger a relapse.

Those with opioid addiction often take medications such as methadone or Suboxone. For alcohol, the treatment might involve disulfiram or naltrexone.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

Aftercare and alumni services start the minute you leave your primary treatment program. They provide support as you learn to live your life without drugs or alcohol.

They also address everyday stressors, such as family relationships and finding places to live. The program may also introduce you to community resources to help you find a job.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

There is no set time length for substance use treatment because people respond to it differently.

On average, programs run:

  • 14 to 28 days
  • 30 days
  • 60 days
  • 90 to 120 days
  • one year or more

How To Pay For Treatment

The first place to look for treatment funding is your health insurance provider. Policies purchased on the ACA marketplace must offer at least partial coverage. You may be responsible for a copayment or coinsurance fee that pays for a percentage, as well.

If you have no insurance or can’t afford your share of the cost, talk to someone at the treatment facility. They may offer a payment program to help you cover the expense. Also, consider a crowdfunding campaign that allows friends and family to donate towards your treatment.
