Getting Help for Substance Abuse Problems in Gresham, OR

If you have gone through an intervention and are ready to accept treatment, you will first have to go through a period of detox. This means that your body completely gets rid of any remaining toxins and chemicals. This period is often very uncomfortable and is characterized by strong withdrawal symptoms. It is vital, therefore, that this is medically supported. Without this support, people are more likely to return to their chosen substance, which is the point at which they are very susceptible to overdose.

After detox, you will be ready for rehab. There are many different rehab centers around, ranging from state-sponsored outpatient facilities where you will go around three times per week for a few hours, to luxury private facility with five star chefs and Egyptian cotton linen, where you will reside for up to 120 days. Every addiction is unique and the help someone needs to get sober is equally individual and unique. It is very important, therefore, that you consider which amenities are important to you.

In terms of payment, insurance carriers will cover at least some of the cost of treatment. However, this is generally not enough. Grants and payment plans are available, however, so don't let the cost of rehab put you off. After all, not seeking treatment will cost you a lot more, potentially even your life.

After rehab, you should get aftercare. Again, what this entails will vary depending on your individual journey. However, services such as cognitive behavior therapy, halfway houses, and 12 step programs are commonly seen. Aftercare programs are there to make sure that once you are on the right path, you can remain on it. At the same time, they will help you get back on track if you relapse.
