An effective Gilbert addiction treatment for drug and alcohol abuse can help you achieve normal daily functioning, such as relations with family and friends, productive employment and averting legal problems.
The treatment programs we have here at SpringBoard Recovery want to break the cycle of habitual drug-seeking behavior and the implications of prolonged drug or alcohol abuse. The type and setting of treatment are greatly variable and will mostly depend on every person’s specific needs and situations. Some people can achieve substance abuse recovery with short outpatient programs, while others may need a longer period of residential rehab.
Not all inpatient and outpatient programs are the same. We may use different types of treatment methods in any program – again, depending on a person’s specific history on substance abuse and the response they have shown on treatment. Moreover, for many individuals, the enduring nature of abuse problems requires close monitoring and probably several intervention attempts. However, with attention and focus, recovery from substance abuse is possible.
Types of Drug and Alcohol Abuse Treatment and Gilbert Addiction Treatment
People who are seeking Gilbert addiction treatment (drugs and alcohol) for abuse will benefit from initial evaluation or assessment by our treatment specialists. We have qualified individuals who have experience with addiction and the insight they offer in terms of recommending the right treatment method will prove instrumental in boosting the chances of a successful recovery.
This can be done in a doctor’s office or an alternative clinical setting. This type of treatment is the “least intensive” part of the treatment range and is usually used for individuals with active employment status, strong social support, and the least severe issues when it comes to substance abuse. Gilbert addiction treatment (drugs and alcohol) may include frequent counseling and therapy, sober living training, drug education, and outpatient detox programs. The duration of treatment varies and depends on the recovery process.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment
This is slightly more intensive than the previous category, but this may include many of the services offered in the outpatient treatment. However, this is given out a little more often and/or for longer durations during the day. Furthermore, intensive outpatient treatment can accommodate individuals with co-existing mental health or medical issues and offer them the services available for inpatient treatment at the same time as the intensive outpatient treatment takes place.
This requires the stability of 24-hour attention for more severe drug or alcohol abuse issues. Patients are placed in around-the-clock care, aiming to remove them from contributing factors or situations that can worsen their addiction. Daily activities may include several individual and group counseling meetings. Many treatment facilities also offer monitored withdrawal detox programs and more intense care for dual diagnosis psychiatric and behavioral addiction problems.
Intensive Inpatient Hospitalization
This uses a full-time hospital-based treatment for individuals with severe drug and alcohol abuse problems and those with serious co-existing mental health or medical problems. This often begins with a period of treatment if the individual was admitted in an extremely deteriorated psychiatric or medical state, and medical intervention and close monitoring to restore them back to a stable condition.
While not all these Gilbert addiction treatment (drugs and alcohol) categories are available here in SpringBoard Recovery, we can assure you that our professional staff can refer you to a treatment facility that can provide you with the care that you need for a full recovery.
Structured Sober Living
This program provides individuals with the chance to strive for the things that can guide them to throw away the habit of using drugs and alcohol. Through accountability, a 12-step recovery program, and participating in different SpringBoard workshops, the individuals will discover how to live a purposeful, fulfilling, and responsible life in sobriety.
We have daily schedules that can teach the significance of structure and routine in recovery. This is something that many people who suffer from addiction are unable to do. Through a structured sober living program, we will also help you discover your character flaws and drive you every day to do away with those things and become better.
How to Determine the Right Substance Abuse Treatment
As we mentioned above, effective drug and alcohol abuse treatment does not use a standard approach. Various patient populations require a more personalized type of treatment.
Some of the factors that can determine the type of Gilbert addiction treatment (drugs and alcohol) program that is most necessary include:
- Type of substance used
- Duration of the substance abuse problem
- Frequency or amount of use
- Presence of multiple abused substances
- Number of prior treatment attempts
- Co-existing medical conditions
- Dual diagnosis behavioral addictions
- Dual diagnosis psychiatric conditions
- If pharmacotherapy is required during recovery
- If medically-assisted withdrawal and detox is required
- If the patient is employed
- If the patient requires legal counseling

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the Most Common Treatments for Drug Addiction?
After you do your research and find the right treatment center for you or your loved one, there is a range of care specific for each individual patient. Treatment should include medical and mental health services as needed. And there are many options that are successful in treating drug addiction, like:
- Behavioral counseling
- Medical devices and applications used to treat withdrawal symptoms
- Skills training
- Evaluation and treatment for mental health
- Long-term follow-up
These treatment plans paired alongside a team of recovery staff and at-home support systems play a pivotal role in the process of rehabilitation.
What is Drug Addiction Treatment?
Drug addiction is a chronic disorder that affects the entire personal and professional lives of individuals affected by it. Treatment is used for the intent to assist addicted persons to cease compulsive drug usage. Treatment or “rehabilitation” treatment can vary in lengths of time as every person and their affliction is different and said treatment could occur in a variety of different settings. In the case of many treated individuals rehab can be a long-term process involving many interventions and consistent monitoring.
As mentioned above treatment can look different for a variety of people as everyone has different needs and experiences warranted for different methods of treatment. Medications can be used to treat addiction to opioids (methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone, and other long-acting formulations). Tobacco addiction treatment would then have a different approach using patches, gum, lozenges, and nasal sprays (medications: varenicline and bupropion) as these two types of addiction look and act differently in the body. Similarly, alcohol dependence treatment is treated in different methods and other co-occurs with other drug addictions.
As medical practice evolves so does treatment and therapy. There are a variety of evidence-based approaches to treating addiction. Behavioral treatments (cognitive-behavioral therapy or contingency management) can be coupled with medications, or work alone. Specific treatment options are available depending on the individual and their needs and experiences depending on the types of drugs they use.
Can Drug Addiction be Treated?
Drug addiction is a treatable chronic disease but treating it is not an easy task. Many people suffer relapses as they cannot just stop using drugs for a few days and have the problem dissolve. Treatment is temporary, but recovery lasts a lifetime so make sure you are choosing the right treatment facility based on the individual needs and the type of care provided at the facility you have chosen. The majority of patients who need long-term and/or repeated care stop using completely and live in recovery for the rest of their lives. But, in order for treatment and therapy to be successful the patient involved must complete the following:
- Stop using drugs or alcohol
- Stay drug-free
- Be a productive member of society, in the family, and at work
A seemingly small list, however, it can take weeks or months of intensive treatment for some to grasp this concept. And ultimately, is the biggest challenge for patients seeking treatment.
What Are My Addiction Treatment Options?
Options for treating addiction vary depending on the need of the patient/individual, their needs, and experiences with drug addiction. Our facility staff work to get to know whoever enters our campus and seeks treatment so we can provide their own personalized care and treatment in order to achieve the most success in recovery. For example, someone with a severe form of addiction might choose to enter a detox program prior to transition into rehab. Some may choose to begin an inpatient or outpatient recovery program/facility. Once treatment has ceased it is highly recommended that all those who transition back home continue to reinforce the lessons and behavioral therapies they have learned in treatment by attending support groups and therapy sessions. Post facility treatment looks different for everyone, so having a support system set in place before your departure from a facility is vital to any at-home success.
For many, the first step in recovery is not admittance to a rehabilitation center, but acknowledging their personal struggle with substance dependence. Many who suffer from addiction ignore, or simply don’t see the red flags that should be telling them to seek help. Following step one (which is acknowledgment) the next step is finding the right treatment facility and program suitable for the individual to restore overall health and wellbeing. The road to recovery is not an easy one, but many find happiness in life following their facility treatment.
As a reminder: “one-size-fits-all” treatment is not an option when approaching recovery for addiction. The treatment you choose must be dependent on the necessary needs of the individual based on the recommended treatment plan made by support staff in the facility. Success in recovery is always dependent on how much the individual puts into it.
Willpower and self-discipline are vital to the recovery process. Treatment is not easy, but the lasting effects are what makes it worthwhile. Any individual who enters into treatment is never alone in the process. There are many support staff working in facilities as well as other people also seeking treatment who can relate to your personal struggles and what you’re going through. These groups alongside your family, friends, and at-home support system who have your best interests at heart is what can help carry you through the difficult moments in treatment.
How Much Does Treatment Cost?
Cost of treatment is dependent on your type of insurance (if you have it), and which treatment centers will accept it. There are many alternatives to paying for treatment and you can find more information from our Springboard Recovery information page that talks about cost and payment options, here.
How to Stage an Intervention
When a loved one is in need of treatment but has not yet accepted or acknowledged this need, loved ones might come to the aid of said individual and provide an intervention, which takes place between the loved ones and the individual suffering from addiction. Interventions are designed to assist loved ones in expressing their concerns in a constructive way and to encourage the individual in seeking medical attention for their substance abuse issue. An intervention can result in seeking treatment options and finding the right treatment facility/treatment plan.
