Alcohol & Drug Rehab Options In Ashland County, Ohio
Many of the addiction treatment centers in the area offer multiple treatment programs, including:
Medical detoxification, or medical detox, involves allowing the drugs and/or alcohol to completely clear your system. This can take place at a detox center or with the help of your healthcare provider.
When the substances begin to leave your system, you’re likely to feel at least some withdrawal symptoms. The healthcare providers in the detox program will prescribe medication to help ease withdrawal symptoms and ensure you’re as stable as possible
Inpatient treatment or residential treatment has you live at a treatment facility and receive 24/7 care. It’s often recommended for those with severe addiction and can include case management, individual and group therapy, dual-diagnosis treatment, and addiction education.
Outpatient treatment is recommended for anyone with a mild-to-moderate substance use disorder and a supportive home environment. Instead of living at a treatment center, you go to treatment sessions throughout the day and then go home at night.
Outpatient treatment options include partial hospitalization programs (PHPs), intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), and standard outpatient programs.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) involves being prescribed approved medication for alcohol or opioid use disorder. These medications can help ease cravings, lessen withdrawal symptoms, and heal some of the damage done by substance abuse. MAT also involves behavioral therapy.
