Spokane Washington Drug and Alcohol Resources

Spokane, Washington's motto, "Near Nature, Near Perfect" certainly describes it well, as the high plains city is rich in history, culture, natural resources, the arts and sports. As the second largest city in the state of Washington, it also has its problems. Substance abuse and alcoholism take their toll on rich and poor alike.

Although Washington has legalized the recreational use of marijuana, drugs like heroin, meth, ecstasy and cocaine, and excessive alcohol are a threat to public health and safety like anywhere else. If your family is affected by drugs or alcohol NorthPoint Recovery can guide you to the local support you need.

How to Choose an Addiction Treatment Center in Spokane

Spokane is such a big city, and there are so many choices when it comes to addiction treatment. Maybe you've come to the conclusion that you need to go to a professional rehab center. The problem is that you aren't sure what you should be looking for. You'd be surprised how many people share your thoughts on this subject.

There are several different defining characteristics you should look for. These will help to ensure that you're receiving excellent care for your recovery.

  • Joint Commission Accreditation - The Joint Commission only offers accreditation to facilities that provide the utmost in professional treatment for their patients. You shouldn't consider any program that does not advertise that they are accredited. If you do, you're likely to receive treatment that is subpar.
  • A small patient population - Sometimes it can seem as though facilities that treat a lot of patients offer better treatment. This isn't true at all. Many larger programs are grossly understaffed. This means that you might not get as much time with staff members as you would like or need.
  • A program that treats co-occurring disorders - Though it may seem strange, there are addiction treatment centers that still don't treat co-occurring disorders. When their patients present with depression, anxiety or another condition, they require them to get treatment first. Once they do, they can return for help with their substance abuse problems. This is not the best approach, by far. You want to find a facility that will treat your co-occurring disorder. This is going to be so important for your recovery overall.
  • A rehab that understands the importance of aftercare - Perhaps you've committed to going to detox and then on to rehab. You may not realize it, but your journey to recovery has just begun. Any treatment program you choose should understand that your addiction needs long-term care. This means following a schedule of appropriate treatment at the right level. For example, after inpatient rehab, you should be transitioned into an outpatient program.
  • Help with relapse prevention - Regardless of how you feel about your recovery, relapse is always a possibility. You may feel as though quitting your use of drugs and alcohol was the best thing you could have done. Still, there's always a chance that you'll go back to using. Your treatment team should help you put a relapse prevention plan into place. This is vital for you once you're finished with rehab.

There are different forms of addiction treatment that you can choose from. Keep in mind that the right option for you might be different from what works for someone else. The key is to find the method that you will respond to the most.

Inpatient treatment is frequently what people think of when they consider going to rehab. This type of addiction help works very well for a lot of people. It might be something for you to consider if you're thinking of going to rehab.

When you go into an inpatient treatment program, you're committed to around 30 days of treatment. Some programs are shorter, some may be longer. During that time, you'll go through detox, and you'll receive therapy.

There are a lot of benefits to getting inpatient care. You'll be getting support around the clock from professionals. You'll get to meet regularly with your therapist and have access to multiple support groups. If you were concerned about being tempted to use, that worry will be erased because relapse isn't possible.

Inpatient rehab is a wonderful way to get the help and support you need for addiction recovery. Most people agree that it's definitely worth considering for themselves.

As good as inpatient rehab is, it's just not right for everyone. If you're not able to commit to that length of time, you might be right for an outpatient treatment program. Most people agree that a traditional outpatient rehab probably isn't the best option for those who are new to treatment. You most likely need something that offers a little more time with staff members. That is why an IOP is a program that might fit you better.

IOP stands for intensive outpatient program. You will still be able to live at home while you attend. These programs are all run differently, but you'll probably find that you'll attend several days a week. Quite often, you can go to IOP during the evening hours instead of in the daytime. This will allow you to continue to work and be there for your children, if necessary. These programs usually last for about 12 weeks, with appointments 3 to 5 days a week.

There are cases when it's OK for patients to begin with outpatient treatment. You'll want to speak with a professional before deciding if it's right for you.
