TABLE OF CONTENTS
There are a lot of different options available for people who are searching for professional addiction treatment in Arizona. What matters most is for people to opt for the type of rehab that will work best for them. Everyone is an individual and people have their own needs when it comes to recovering from substance abuse.
DRUG AND ALCOHOL DETOX
Drug and alcohol detox is typically the first step in addiction recovery for many professional programs. Not every drug requires detox, but many do because it helps with withdrawal symptoms.
Detoxing can help the body get through withdrawal while minimizing a lot of the symptoms. It can shorten its duration and reduce the risk of serious complications as the drug leaves the addict’s body.
The best detox programs use a combination of medical and holistic detox methods. Medications may be used to help manage symptoms and holistic treatments like improved diet and an exercise regimen can help the body process the drug. Depending on the individual, detoxing may take 7-10 days or more.
INPATIENT REHAB PROGRAM
A lot of people first get help for their addictions by going through inpatient alcohol and drug rehab. These programs usually last for about 28 days, and that time period often includes any time spent in detox as well.
During inpatient rehab, patients participate in several different types of treatment. They work with their therapist one-on-one, have group therapy sessions and may receive family therapy. Various other therapeutic activities may be added as well, depending on the patient’s treatment plan.
TRADITIONAL OUTPATIENT TREATMENT
Outpatient rehabs are available as well, and these more traditional programs require a very small time commitment. They usually involve working with a therapist during weekly, bi-weekly or even monthly appointments.
Even though outpatient rehab can be effective, it is not always the best option for people who are new to treatment. When a person is stopping their use of drugs or alcohol, they usually need a higher level of care than what OP can offer them. But when it is used appropriately, it can be an excellent part of an aftercare plan.
INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAMS
Intensive outpatient programs have become much more popular in recent years. IOPs offer the higher level of care that a lot of people need during addiction recovery, but do not require people to stay in a facility to get treatment.
Every facility that offers IOPs runs them differently, of course, but they often:
- Offer evening appointments to make it possible for people to continue to work or go to school during the day.
- Require attendance at several appointments throughout the week, which last for a few hours.
- Include addiction therapy with a qualified therapist.
- Include peer therapy meetings.
- Cost much less than inpatient programs while providing a comparable level of treatment.
PARTIAL HOSPITALIZATION PROGRAMS
Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) are similar to IOPs in that they offer more intensive treatment on an outpatient basis. People typically attend PHPs during the day for a various number of hours, based on their unique needs. It is not uncommon for people to attend a PHP after inpatient treatment and then transition to an IOP later on.
