How to Choose the Best Program for You
First, thinking about choosing a program for yourself proves that you are taking steps to improve your life. Congratulations for taking the time to learn about the addiction treatment and rehab program options available at Grace Recovery in Los Angeles. From residential and outpatient programs to medication-assisted options, we are confident that we can help you find the help that you need to be free from your addiction. With all the different choices, how can you choose the right program for you? Read below to learn more about our programs, and which one would best suit your life.
At Grace Recovery, there are a couple of options for medication-assisted addiction treatment. The first is Suboxone. This works as a replacement for the opioids you may have used. This substitute is only used during detox and can help reduce cravings and withdrawal. You will gradually taper off of the medication until you no longer crave the substance. Another medication used here is Vivitrol. This is more of a long-term option, which is a monthly injection that blocks the effects of opioids and reduces cravings. This drug cannot be started until a period of sobriety.
The professionals at Grace Recovery can best determine what option will work for your situation.
Drug & Alcohol Detox Program
This is a multi-step program. Starting with evaluation, a professional at Grace Recovery can do a thorough examination of your needs. They will gather a lot of background information and determine the proper treatment plan. This plan often starts with stabilization, medication-assisted treatment to remove the traces of opioids or alcohol from your body. The next step is preparing you for recovery and other treatments. This can include a residential inpatient drug rehab, a support group, an intensive outpatient program, or all of the above. It all depends on your needs.
Residential Inpatient Drug Rehab
This type of program offers an environment with the highest level of support. By living at the facility, you will have 24-hour access to treatment and therapy options. You can take the time away from your daily life to focus only on recovery. This is best for people with moderate to severe cases of addiction, or those who may have less support at home. It provides fewer distractions and takes you away from your vices.
From 30-day programs to 90-day programs, Grace Recovery has the residential inpatient drug rehab program for you.
Intensive Outpatient Program
An intensive outpatient program is great for people who need to stick to their work or school schedules while getting treatment. You have the same treatment options as you would in a residential program, without having to live at the facility. This could be a follow-up treatment to a residential program, or it can work by itself. Again, it all depends on your needs.
This type of program is especially good for those who have a support system at home who can be involved in the recovery process. From having people to take you to and from therapy or people who can attend group therapy with you, an intensive outpatient rehab program can be beneficial to both you and your friends and family.
Another perk of an intensive outpatient program is that it is much less expensive than a residential rehab program. This type of addiction treatment may or may not be covered by insurance, so it is important to have options.
So what program should you choose?
Overall, you will have to weigh your options. Can you take time away from work or school to complete your recovery? Then maybe a residential rehab program will work for you. Do you have friends or family who can help you juggle treatment and your daily responsibilities? An intensive outpatient program could be a great addiction treatment option for your needs. Medication-assisted treatment and detox options can work into either of your choices. For further information, give us a call or visit at Grace Recovery. Your new beginning is waiting.
