Addiction Treatment In Southaven, MS

Living in Southaven, there are a variety of treatment programs available including with Vertava Health Mississippi.  You should seek treatment meeting your individual drug and/or alcohol recovery needs.

Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs

Withdrawal from drugs and alcohol can be physically and mentally difficult and it can also be health-threatening. While many people are aware of the dangers of alcohol withdrawal, you can also experience health challenges while withdrawing from any drug or polydrug use.

This is one reason why medically supervised detox is important. Once you complete detox, you can then enter further drug and alcohol treatment.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

An inpatient or residential treatment program will provide a safe, comfortable environment for your recovery. You can also receive evidence-based therapy, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) or cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).

Along with therapy and peer support groups, residential rehab centers also offer opportunities to learn about yourself and build sober living and coping skills.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment can be more or less intensive, depending on how many times a week it meets and how long meetings last.

Most outpatient treatment programs last between 10 and 16 weeks. If you have support for your recovery at home and plan to continue to work while you attend treatment, an outpatient treatment program could be right for you.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Mississippi has received funding from the federal government to help stop the opioid epidemic, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT). MAT has been proven to help people stop using opioids, alcohol, and tobacco.

MAT programs don’t just use medications. They also provide counseling and peer group support. Some MAT medications include naltrexone, buprenorphine, and methadone.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

Because substance use disorders are chronic, lifelong conditions, you need to maintain your health and recovery.

Many people choose to continue their recovery with alumni and/or aftercare programs. You can maintain connections that you made in rehab through alumni programs. Aftercare services can include group and individual counseling, along with peer group support.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), substance use treatment should be designed to meet individual treatment history and health needs.

In this framework, you’ll find common program lengths including:

  • 30-day programs
  • 60-day programs
  • 90-day programs
  • 120-day programs

How To Pay For Treatment

Nearly all residential treatment programs in Mississippi accept private insurance program payments. Many rehabs also accept government insurance, including Medicare and Medicaid. Mississippi may also provide funding for some types of drug recovery treatment.

You may also use military insurance (Tricare) to pay for rehab. Rehabs can also offer discounts or scholarship programs. If you need help to pay for treatment, you may be able to ask family and friends for help.
