Addiction Treatment In Big Sandy, TX

The complexity of addiction makes treatment highly personal, so you’ll need to find a center that caters to your needs. Whether you need the support of an inpatient rehab center for an extended period or need support during withdrawal, consider all of the factors in your addiction struggle as you seek treatment.

Many treatment centers address addiction through both behavioral and experiential therapies. Rehab centers may also provide a full continuum of care that begins with a detox program.

Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs

Withdrawing from drugs or alcohol is not a comfortable process, and you’ll need support as you experience these symptoms. Detox programs provide both psychological support as well as medical intervention for withdrawal, so you can safely rid your body of drugs or alcohol and prepare for more intensive addiction treatment.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Inpatient or residential treatment centers provide a place to live during recovery. These can be hospital-like settings or retreat-like settings, but all will combine around-the-clock monitoring with behavioral therapies and counseling. Inpatient programs are effective for treating co-occurring mental health disorders.

Inpatient treatment has quite a bit of variety, with many programs focusing on a specific demographic, such as men or women. The length of treatment will also vary and is based on your specific needs.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment is helpful if you do not have the time or freedom to go to an inpatient center. Outpatient programs, which require strong home support, allow you to live at home and travel to the treatment center for therapy. Programs range in intensity and will determine how often you meet for treatment each week.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) uses FDA-approved medications and counseling to treat addiction. Medications may include buprenorphine, methadone, and naltrexone for opioid use. Disulfiram and acamprosate may be used to address alcohol use disorder. MAT can be delivered in a stand-alone outpatient program or as part of residential treatment.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

The sober living and coping skills you learn in treatment need to be reinforced for your entire life, and aftercare or alumni services provide that support. These services are key to preventing relapse. Services may include peer support groups or the use of 12-step meetings to support long-term recovery.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

Addiction treatment can be short-term or long-term in nature. Short-term programs last four to six weeks, while long-term programs can be six months to up to a year. The longer you can stay in treatment, the better. 90-day programs are thought to offer the best chances for long-term recovery.

How To Pay For Treatment

Private health insurance is often the first way to pay for addiction treatment, though it does require some out-of-pocket expenses like co-pays and deductibles. Medicaid may also cover addiction treatment.

Health insurance may cover the following programs:

  • treatment for youth
  • long-term treatment
  • residential treatment
  • outpatient treatment

Grants, payment plans, scholarships, and crowdfunding are additional options to pay for treatment.
