What Is the First Step of Drug Addiction Treatment?

When a person decides to enter drug rehab, they recognize just how challenging the process can be. Yet, how do you get to that point? The first step of drug addiction treatment is typically to admit there is a problem. Once you do that, you then open up to opportunities to fix that problem. The key is finding the right supportive services to ensure you can achieve your best outcome. At United Recovery Project, we offer a range of luxury treatment programs to support you along the way.

Is Inpatient Drug Rehab Right for You?

Many people find that their first step in treatment is to enroll in an inpatient drug rehab. That means stepping away from family and friends for a bit. You will not be able to work during treatment. Rather, you’ll live within the community and focus your energy each day on healing and full recovery. It’s an opportunity to focus on your best outcome.

Inpatient treatment is best for those that need advanced help, including drug or alcohol detox. You may benefit from inpatient care if you:

  • Used for a long time
  • Have medical concerns developed as a result of your addiction
  • Use drugs that are hard to detox from, such as cocaine, heroin, or benzos
  • Have tried to stop using before but relapsed
  • Have overdosed at some time in your past

In these situations, an inpatient treatment program is best. It may include spending a few weeks in a detox center as well. This is an opportunity for you to work fully and with all of your focus.

Outpatient Drug Rehab May Be an Option for Some People

There are some situations where outpatient drug rehab can be a good first step. This depends on many factors. First, you need to have a safe and drug-free environment to live in during your recovery. You also need people who are just as committed as you are to help you stop using for good. In addition to this, outpatient program effectiveness depends on your willingness and ability to commit to change.

We offer a range of outpatient programs that may be right for you. Often, our clients go from inpatient care to outpatient treatment. Some of the programs we offer include:

  • Drug and alcohol detox
  • Residential treatment and extended rehab
  • Partial hospitalization program
  • Intensive outpatient program
  • Sober living program

The type and level of care you need here are dependent on many factors. In intensive outpatient programs, you’ll spend time each day (or most days) working on treatment. Over time, you may see improvement. That may lead to a reduction in the number of hours or days you need to come in for treatment. Over time, you’ll be well on your way to seeing significant improvement.

Finding the Right Drug and Alcohol Rehab for You

Drug rehab treatment isn’t always simple. That is, you may not know how much or what type of care is best for your needs. That’s why the first step is often an assessment to determine what your needs are. Our team at United Recovery Project can offer that type of support to you when you call us. We’ll also work with you to create a treatment plan that fits your needs and what you are up again.
