Drug and Alcohol Rehab and Treatment in Tacoma, Washington

Tacoma is known for its lovely ports and sparkling artistic culture. As the third-largest city in the state of Washington, Tacoma has undergone numerous changes over the past few years. It has a population of about 200,000, and many Tacoma residents struggle with some form of addiction.

Tacoma, like the rest of Washington, legalized marijuana in 2012. While this move freed up resources to help combat other drugs and forms of addiction, it also means that many Tacoma residents don't take marijuana addiction seriously. Half the Tacoma population has smoked marijuana at least once, and about 5% of marijuana users eventually developing an addiction.

Tacoma's difficulties aren't limited to marijuana, though. The city has seen a surge in heroin abuse, with heroin-related rehab admissions tripling over the last several years. Alcohol is a chronic problem, with about 16% of teens drinking on a regular basis and about 10% binge drinking.

Because of the high availability of drugs and alcohol, many Tacoma residents find that it's nearly impossible to get sober on their own. Recovering addicts can experience immense pressure to use, particularly if they don't have support from friends, family, or the culture as a whole. Even in such a challenging environment, though, recovery is well within your grasp. Rehab makes it possible to get the treatment you need, pairing competent treatment with a break from the stresses of everyday routines.

Why Should I Seek Alcohol Rehab in Tacoma, Washington?

Alcohol may be legal, but it's still a drug, and it's legal status doesn't render it any less addictive. Ninety percent of Tacoma residents drink alcohol at least sometimes, and 10% of people who drink eventually become alcoholics. Drinking kills almost 100,000 people every year, and that figure doesn't even take into account indirect and premature deaths due to obesity, liver failure, brain damage, and suicide. Don't kid yourself. Alcohol is just as dangerous as other drugs, and sometimes much more dangerous. Alcoholism is a disease, not a personal failing, and addiction warrants help, understanding, and an aggressive treatment plan.

Many alcoholics find that alcohol is incorporated into nearly every area of their lives. It serves as a social lubricant, a source of comfort, and a way to celebrate. Some alcoholics even conceive of alcohol as a friend, and giving it up can feel like going through a bad breakup. There are triggers for alcohol use everywhere, but rehab can help you implement novel and effective strategies for coping with these triggers.

If you're like many alcoholics, you may want to delay treatment, holding out for one more drink and one more day. When you're in the throes of alcoholism, it's easy to minimize the seriousness of your problem. Every day you spend drinking is a day you spend not living your life to its fullest. Alcoholism subjects you to serious health, legal, and financial risks, and no one deserves to live with uncertainty. Rehab can be a game changer. The first step, though, is asking for help.

Why Should I Seek Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Tacoma, Washington?

Though it might seem otherwise, no drug addict willingly chooses the misery of addiction. Once you become dependent on drugs, though, giving them up is nearly impossible without help. Using drugs puts you at risk for serious accidents, overdose, cancer, organ failure, and death. Every year, 2.5 million people go to emergency rooms because of drug use, and drugs remain the leading cause of accidental death in the U.S. Many people have died of drug use, insisting all along that they didn't have a problem. Don't be like these people. The longer you allow your addiction to go untreated, the harder giving up drugs becomes.

Some Tacoma addicts worry that the specific drug they use isn't powerful enough to spark an addiction. But the defining trait of addiction is not the drug you use, but how it affects you. Tacoma residents have sought help to overcome a variety of drug addictions, including:

  • Marijuana
  • Meth
  • Crack
  • Cocaine
  • Synthetic marijuana
  • PCP
  • Prescription drugs such as Ritalin, Valium, Klonopin, and painkillers.

If you're still not sure whether you need help, consider how your drug use has affected your life. Addicts continue to use drugs in spite of negative health or interpersonal consequences. They may also feel physically or psychologically dependent on the drugs they use. Some other signs that you have an addiction include:

  • Physical or psychological withdrawal when you try to stop using.
  • Fights with loved ones over your drug use.
  • Needing a higher dosage of the drug than you initially required.
  • Experiencing strong, severe drug cravings.
  • Being unable to concentrate when you're craving drugs.
  • Trying unsuccessfully to quit using drugs on your own.
  • Experiencing negative emotions about your drug use.
  • Lying about your use of drugs.
  • Needing to use drugs to feel "normal."
  • Breaking the law to gain access to drugs.

What Happens in Rehab?

Each rehab is unique. Some prioritize spiritual well-being, while others focus solely on getting you clean and sober. Choose a place that suits your values and that is ready and willing to meet your unique needs. Some services you can expect to encounter in rehab include:

  • Individual therapy designed to help you understand the nature of your drug addiction and how best to remain clean and sober.
  • Medical supervision as you go through detox, in addiction to medical care for any physical or mental health problems you have.
  • Support groups, both formal and informal, designed to help you rely on your peers and benefit from the experiences of other addicts.
  • Assistance designing and implementing a plan for your long-term sobriety.
  • Family education programs about the disease of addiction.
  • Activities to help you achieve career and educational goals, in addition to taking your mind off of your addiction.

Rehab usually lasts between 30 and 45 days, but your situation may be different. Factors such as age, health, personality, the drugs you use, and the philosophy of the rehab you've chosen all impact the length of your stay. Rehab is voluntary, which means you can check out when you want. Your team of providers will work with you to determine when you're truly ready to independently embark on a life of sobriety. Listening to their recommendations can increase your chances of remaining clean and sober for the long haul.
