Rehab for Substance Use Disorders

Rehab centers are often the best place for someone with a substance use disorder to receive treatment and recover. A treatment facility specializing in addiction provides a safe, confidential and supportive environment for you or a loved one to heal from the effects of long-term substance abuse.

Whether you want to recover from opioid addiction, alcohol addiction, or your substance abuse relates to another drug; we are here for you. Our rehab centers are professional healthcare facilities with accredited and experienced staff to help you detox and recover as comfortably as possible.

What is Inpatient Rehab?

Inpatient rehab is a treatment that involves a short-term stay at a rehab center. If you decide inpatient rehab is for you, you’ll stay at our treatment facility for an agreed time and partake in a treatment program designed to help you recover from your addiction.

Addiction treatment usually works best when provided by professionals. This option can be more effective for those with severe addictions that can require medication-assisted treatment, along with a range of other ongoing inpatient treatment options. Not all treatment providers will offer inpatient rehab. Some offer treatment services that are limited to outpatient. Although outpatient treatment is also an effective method, it’s not the best treatment method for everyone.

What We Provide in Our Alcohol Rehab and Drug Rehab Treatment Programs

Alcohol and substance abuse treatment often follow a similar framework. However, at Zinnia Healing, we have a range of highly experienced professionals providing individualized treatment options for those needing alcohol rehab or drug rehab.

We tailor our treatment programs to suit you, so you can be sure that you’ll always receive the best healthcare. We understand that everyone is different, so what works for one person may not work for another. We provide a range of treatment options and have highly experienced staff members with broad knowledge and experience relating to substance abuse, addiction and alcoholism.

Some people may benefit from different treatment methods than others. For example, family therapy can work for some people but not for others. Group therapy can benefit those who feel comfortable in a group setting, while others may prefer to engage solely in individual therapy. Our rehab programs are designed around getting results, addiction recovery and relapse prevention.

We believe that everyone deserves the best care possible. We understand that many people with drug addictions also suffer from mental health issues. This is why our addiction treatment program also focuses on mental health issues behavioral health, and overall wellness. Other inpatient centers may provide less comprehensive addiction treatment programs. We believe our approach focuses on the complexities of addiction and tackles the issue at its core. Some people may need a dual diagnosis and modified treatment program to thrive.

How Our Recovery Center is Beneficial for Addiction Treatment & Mental Health

We use a range of treatment options to treat both addiction and mental health issues. Mental health treatment is at the center of our approach. We believe there is often a strong link between mental health problems and addiction, which is why we’ll often take a dual diagnosis approach to addiction treatment.  

Our treatment services are designed to continue past detoxification, as we believe that this is just the first step of addiction treatment. Addiction is a multifaceted issue that is as much about physical health as it is about psychological and behavioral health. We use behavioral therapy methods in our treatment programs for alcohol abuse and substance abuse treatment. Short-term, quick-fix methods aren’t useful in addiction recovery. We believe that the key to relapse prevention is truly understanding your addiction, why you use, and how to stop.

Understanding your addiction means learning the triggers that make you reach for a substance. We explore the thoughts and behaviors that have become such an integral part of your addiction and reframe these using behavioral therapy.

Understanding Detox

When many people think about addiction treatment, they automatically think of detoxification (detox). This is where you abstain from taking a substance or drinking alcohol and allow your body to rid all traces of it naturally. Although this is paramount to the addiction recovery process, it is only a small part of a larger program.

Detoxing can be uncomfortable for anyone with an addiction. Detoxing at an inpatient rehab can be the safest and most comfortable way to detox for many people with substance use disorders. This is because you’ll always be under the supervision of healthcare professionals, and the level of care you receive will be second-to-none.

Some people require a medication-assisted treatment detox. This is where they will be given medication to manage the withdrawal symptoms that come with detoxification. Withdrawal symptoms can be severe for those with an addiction to opiates or alcohol; without medical supervision and intervention, detoxing can be very dangerous. Inpatient rehab centers like ours provide you with a confidential, comfortable, and safe space to detox.

Once you have completed detox, we focus on using a range of treatment options as part of the recovery process. This is key to relapse prevention and often involves attending group therapy and support groups. However, we know this isn’t for everyone, which is why we’ll work with you to create an individualized treatment plan that caters to your needs and works for you.

Differences Between Inpatient and Outpatient Rehab Centers

Everyone’s substance use disorder is different. For some people, minimal intervention is required to help them recover. However, this largely depends on the substance the person is addicted to and how much of it they consume. Furthermore, the length of someone’s addiction can make a huge difference. If you have regularly consumed a substance for many years, your learned behaviors, tolerance and dependence on the drug will likely be more ingrained and intense.

For people with less severe addictions, outpatient options can be sufficient. An outpatient treatment program involves the person attending sessions at the rehab center regularly but does not involve a residential stay. This way, they still live in the community while they are recovering from their addiction but still have a level of intervention from addiction professionals.

The Difference Between Residential Treatment & Intensive Outpatient Treatment for Drug Addiction

Intensive outpatient treatments are another option for drug addiction recovery. The intensive outpatient treatment option is a middle ground between inpatient residential treatment and outpatient treatment. With this treatment option, the patient visits the rehab center more regularly than a standard outpatient (on an intensive schedule). They may also be given a treatment plan that includes attending various sessions in the community. This can mean attending support groups or therapy sessions.

What to Expect from Substance Abuse Treatment

When entering inpatient rehab, it’s natural to feel apprehensive. Knowing what to expect can make you feel more prepared. Substance abuse treatment programs can vary between rehab centers, but here’s what you can expect with Zinnia Healing.

Inpatient Assessment

This is important as substance use disorders differ for everyone. In the inpatient assessment, your substance abuse will be discussed so we can get a better picture of your substance use disorder. We’ll also discuss your mental health, how we can help you detox and recommend the best treatment programs for you. Success in addiction treatment is highly dependent on creating a structured and appropriate healthcare plan for the individual.

Payment for your treatment will also be assessed. If your insurance doesn’t cover an inpatient stay, we’ll direct you to financing, payment assistance and state aid options to help you get the treatment you need.

Detox

When entering addiction treatment, detox is the first phase. The level of intervention you require will depend on the substance you are detoxing from. Detox can be uncomfortable, and most people will experience withdrawal symptoms to some extent. For some people, withdrawal symptoms can be severe and require medication to relieve them. Remember, though: we understand the complexity of substance use disorders. Our accredited treatment programs are designed to make detox as comfortable as possible for you. We will always assess whether medication-assisted treatment is for you and provide it as required.

Therapy and Counselling

Your mental health is a key concern at Zinnia Healing. We understand the importance of therapy and counseling in our inpatient, outpatient, and residential treatment programs. Your drug addiction has affected your overall wellness. Often, people are unaware of how much of an impact addiction has on behavioral health. Rebuilding your life with loved ones and family members may be on your mind. Family therapy can be a helpful way to promote this.

We always provide a confidential environment for patients to explore this aspect of their addiction. Substance abuse treatment isn’t about detox alone. Often your mental health and behavioral health require ongoing treatment.

Aftercare

After completing one of our treatment programs, you will typically still require an additional level of intervention. This is to help prevent relapse and is known as aftercare. This can include regular outpatient meetings, contact with case managers, or access to other outpatient services. Case managers will normally assess the level of aftercare or access to outpatient services you require when you leave the treatment facility.

Funding Inpatient Rehab – Do We Accept Medicare and Medicaid?

It is natural to have concerns over the funding of your treatment. We offer a range of payment options to our patients. This includes paying for your treatment via your health insurance or as a cash payment. Many people pay for their treatment with their health insurance, but this option depends on your coverage policy.

Some health insurance companies may only cover some stages of the inpatient treatment program. It’s important to check your policy to avoid disappointment.

We accept payment from most insurance providers, including Medicaid, but it’s always best to contact us to check whether we accept yours.

If your insurance doesn’t cover an inpatient stay, and you cannot pay privately, there may still be options. We want you to get the addiction treatment you need. So, we’ll always direct you to financing, payment assistance and state aid sources where possible.
