AdCare offers a range of alcohol and drug addiction treatment services to patients seeking compassionate care and guidance. The first steps to getting help are identifying the warning signs and symptoms of alcohol and drug misuse, as well as understanding what kinds of treatment programs can be expected, depending on the type and level of addiction.
While each patient’s case is unique, there are several symptoms and behaviors common to everyone struggling with addiction. People with an alcohol or drug problem may notice:
The presence of any or all of these symptoms may indicate that it’s time to seek treatment.
Once a patient’s unique needs are determined, the AdCare team can get to work on the treatment program best suited to the situation.
Some patients may opt for an inpatient program, which addresses addiction from a medical perspective and focuses on physical dependence. Safe, monitored detoxification, usually lasting 3 to 5 days, is an important part of this recovery process. Comfort medications are provided to ease any nausea or anxiety experienced during detox. The following rehabilitation, usually lasting 14 to 28 days, assists patients with the psychological and social aspects of alcohol and drug misuse, teaching them how to cope with sobriety and avoid relapse.
Outpatient services are also available for patients who have completed a detox program, or for patients seeking flexible treatment due to work or family constraints. Individual and group counseling, educational sessions, and family services are all part of outpatient treatment, which has multiple day and night sessions per week.
If you have noticed the symptoms of addiction in your life or the life of a loved one, it may be time to seek help. Call today to get started on the road to recovery.
