Scottsdale Inpatient Treatment and Rehab Programs
The decision to go into rehabilitation treatment is hard enough without the added stress of choosing which facility will suit your needs best.
At Springboard Recovery, Scottsdale inpatient and counseling programs are among the treatments we offer using our 12-step process.
Let us give you a better understanding of substance addiction so you can choose which of our programs will suit you best.
What is an addiction?
Addiction is a compulsive condition resulting from the use of substances like drugs and alcohol or from engaging in activities like sex and gambling. Habitual use or engagement could lead to dependency and affect health, work, and relationship.
The most common addiction is substance abuse.
Addiction is treatable.
Drugs and Alcohol Inpatient Rehab
Some of the most commonly abused substance include alcohol, cocaine, ketamine, heroin, cannabis, hallucinogens, and tobacco.
Alcohol is a legal substance that any adult can purchase even from a grocery store. Alcohol only becomes a problem when taken excessively. We use alcohol to relieve stress or deal with personal problems.
Alcoholism is not genetic. Often, children mimic what they see from their parents. If we deal with problems by drinking, our children will think that this is the right way to deal with problems and will eventually do the same.
We can obtain drugs from the street or through prescription. Curiosity is often the main reason for taking drugs. Users want to experience the feeling of euphoria that drug brings to them.
Unfortunately, once the body becomes immune to the drug, the effect diminishes, enticing them to take on a higher dose. Eventually, it becomes an addiction.
Symptoms of substance addiction
Our loved ones will never come to us and say outright that he or she has an addiction. It is important that family members watch out for early symptoms of a loved one’s substance dependency.
Some of the most common symptoms include:
- Irritability and forgetfulness
- Changes in regular behavior patterns like giving up sports or hanging out with new sets of friends
- Declining grades
- Drug paraphernalia inside the room or empty bottles of alcohol
- Frequent hangovers
- Blackout periods
- Changes in eating habits or loss of appetite
When you see your loved ones exhibiting these symptoms, intervention is your best recourse before he or she gets worse.
How is addiction treated?
The following are the steps in treating substance addiction:
- Substance detox or getting rid of drugs from your body
- Evaluation and treatment of possible mental problems like anxiety or depression
- Recovery support to avoid relapse
When to take treatment
Drug and alcohol addiction is treatable. There are a lot of rehab centers offering treatment and detox from drug and alcohol abuse.
The biggest hurdle in getting treatment is DENIAL. It is often difficult to admit your addiction even if you are already dependent on the substance.
The role of family members is crucial in the decision to start treatment.
Once you admit to yourself that you are hooked on the substance, the first thing to do is seek professional medical help. If you are experiencing the following symptoms, consult your doctor so he can prescribe the necessary medication:
- Withdrawal symptoms
- Yellowing of the skin and eyes
Attempting to cure your addiction by not taking the substance is not 100% guarantee that you will get cured. It is best to go to a rehabilitation center for treatment so you can avoid having a relapse.
What should you consider before going to treatment?
Most often, we hesitate about deciding to go to a treatment facility. This is due mainly to some misconceptions we formed in our minds about rehab centers.
Let us walk you through those misconceptions and burst them one by one:
- It is too late to get help. Wrong! It is never too late to get help. The rehab helps you overcome addiction and get you on the road to sober living. Rehab will teach you how to get back to normal.
- Rehab can fix everything. Not true. Rehab centers do not have a magic formula that you can take and everything is okay again. Rehab is there to guide and help you get back to your old self, but you must work on it. If you want help, you have to learn how to help yourself first. Only your will power and determination to get better will help treat you.
- Going to Rehab is punishment. Of course not. Going to Rehab is not a punishment for being an addict. You need the Rehab center because they can teach you techniques and methods on sobriety, which you cannot do on your own or even with help from family and friends alone.
- You feel ashamed sharing to others about your addiction. There is no need to feel ashamed in sharing your experience. Do not forget that everyone else in the rehab is going through the same experience as you. Sharing can sometimes lead to the discovery of a new treatment method or technique.
Choosing your rehab center
Research studies conducted have categorized addiction treatment types as follows:
- Long Term Residential Treatment – Long term residential or inpatient treatment is a round the clock care that lasts for six months to more than a year. Therapuetic communities or TC’s are the best treatment model you can employ.
- Short Term Residential Treatment – Short term inpatient treatment last from 3 weeks to 3 months. A standard treatment should last 90 days. However, some patients require shorter term treatment to help their bodies adjust to the treatment.
- Outpatient Treatment – This treatment is suitable for people with jobs or extensive support system. Outpatient treatment costs less than inpatient treatment. The intensity of the treatment program depends on the individual’s needs.
- Individual Counseling – This treatment focuses more on the preventive use of drugs and alcohol and addresses other concerns like unemployment, relationships, and the structure of your addiction recovery program Scottsdale.
- Group Counseling – Group counseling addresses the same concerns as individual counseling except that there is peer reinforcement that comes from peer discussion. This treatment costs less than individual counseling.
