Drug Rehab Western Mass is the next step of recovery after a medically-supervised detox. Detox at an inpatient facility allows the patient to have constant supervision and care from doctors and nurses during the withdrawal process. The patient will also be given medication to help ease withdrawal symptoms that can be a difficult part of detox. It is not safe to attempt to detox on your own. It takes your body a week or longer to be able to eliminate the drugs that have built up in your system. After the detox process, you will be medically cleared and stable enough to move on to further treatment.

Once you complete the detox program, some people begin inpatient treatment. At inpatient treatment, you live in the facility until you have completed the program successfully and are prepared to return home to a drug-free life. At inpatient drug rehab, you will have 24-hour care and supervision. You will also attend several different kinds of therapy sessions that may include topics like music, art, yoga, meditation or exercise. At inpatient drug rehab, you will receive exposure to therapies needed to break the cycle of addiction. The cravings for drugs are intense in early recovery, so it can be helpful to attend an inpatient facility so that you cannot access your drug of choice. A clinical team of doctors, therapists and case workers will determine the length of time you will need to attend inpatient rehab. The average stay ranges from thirty to sixty days. Some people may require a longer stay due to the severity of their addiction and their progress in therapy.

After inpatient rehab, it is recommended to attend an outpatient treatment program like Compass Recovery. You may be able to go to a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or an intensive outpatient program (IOP).  In the partial hospitalization setting, you will be at the rehab facility several hours a day. You may spend the nights in a sober house nearby, or you can return home to your own home at the end of each day. You will attend counseling and group therapy sessions on a daily basis. Each step you take moves you closer to living drug-free. In outpatient rehab, counselors will teach you how to restore the parts of your life that you lost due to addiction.  Here at Compass Recovery, we know that recovery is not an overnight process. We will help you every step of the way. Our staff understands what you’re going through and knows how to help you achieve your goal of a drug-free life.

In outpatient rehab, you may attend family therapy in addition to group and individual therapy. Addiction is a family disease, and family sessions can help restore some of the trust your family lost in you during active drug addiction. A program like Compass Recovery will help you learn to communicate with your close friends and family again. Our programming is geared to help family members of all ages recover from the impact that your drug use had on their lives. Families can be a great source of support and encouragement during your recovery process.
