Addiction Treatment In Dunkirk

A one-size-fits-all treatment plan isn’t effective for treating substance use. The best addiction treatment programs tailor care to your individual needs.

As you make decisions about addiction treatment for yourself or for someone close to you, make sure the facility you choose offers an assessment to determine an individualized treatment plan.

Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs In Dunkirk

If you need to withdraw from drugs or alcohol, safety is the most important thing. Medically assisted detox programs manage the symptoms of withdrawal and keep you safe. Unregulated withdrawal can be dangerous and even fatal.

When seeking addiction treatment, you’ll see programs that are inpatient and others that are outpatient. Consider how long you’ve been dealing with addiction and how much support you have at home before deciding what kind of care is best.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment In Dunkirk

Inpatient treatment is a good option if you’re suffering from severe addiction or have relapsed more than once. This form of treatment involves support from both peers and professionals in an environment supervised 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

Facilities vary in what therapeutic approaches they use for inpatient care, but expect a wide range of options. Your stay may be short term, or it could be long term. Most people who complete inpatient therapy will follow it up with some outpatient therapy and 12-step support.

Outpatient Treatment In Dunkirk

With outpatient treatment, you or your loved one must travel to and from the addiction treatment center for every session. Treatment sessions may include individual and group therapy. After each session, you return home in the evenings and overnight.

If you choose outpatient care, be sure that you have support from friends and family at home.

Medication-Assisted Treatment In Dunkirk

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) uses medication in combination with behavioral therapies and counseling to address opioid and alcohol use disorders.

This specialized treatment option has shown to reduce the risk of overdose and help you finish a treatment program. MAT may be incorporated into an existing inpatient or outpatient program or can also be a primary treatment option in and of itself.
