Many people find that inpatient drug rehab is a better option for them than outpatient substance abuse treatment, and there are several reasons for this. Inpatient treatment allows you to focus solely on your recovery without any outside distractions and with a much lower opportunity for relapse. However, not everyone feels that inpatient treatment can fit into their lives, which is why it’s important to have an assessment completed to determine the type of drug and alcohol treatment that’s right for you.
At AspenRidge Recovery, we recognize the importance of going through a detoxification program, especially for those who are addicted to alcohol, benzodiazepines or opiates. During the initial days of abstinence from these types of drugs or alcohol, withdrawal can be very intense, even leading to severe medical issues such as seizures or stroke. For clients withdrawing from opiates, they have the option to use Suboxone for the purposes of detoxification. For those withdrawing from alcohol or benzodiazepines, we make the appropriate arrangements with local detox facilities to assist with the detoxification process. We work very closely with these local facilities, and during your detox phase, our clinical team is in direct contact with you and your case manager until you have detoxed and can return to our care.
