Introduction

If you’re addicted to drugs or alcohol, it’s time to admit your problem and start your journey towards recovery. Even if you feel hopeless, you’re not alone, and you can achieve sobriety with a good drug treatment program in Washington.

Heroin use and ensuing deaths have risen dramatically in Washington State over the past decade, most notably among people under 30. Fortunately, research is much more current in Washington than at the federal level, thereby helping local treatment programs deliver the most relevant recovery options. Tom McClellan, former deputy drug czar for President Barack Obama and current CEO of Treatment Research Institute, explains, “The State of Washington has by far the best and the most comprehensive and the most up-to-date statistics, way better than the national government.” Because of this, treatment facilities can provide the most appropriate programs that address the current reality.

Don’t become another drug or alcohol statistic. Make the choice to get help today. If you’re not sure where to begin, here’s a helpful look at some of the drug treatment options available in Washington to help you decide on the one that will best help you achieve recovery.

Type & Length of Care

Many different programs can be found in Washington, and they vary in type and length of care.

Long Term Treatment Programs

Long term treatment programs last at least 90 days, and many will last much longer. Depending on the needs of the patient, facilities often offer programs that are 120 days or even longer. One of the main benefits of a long term program is that patients have more time to make sure that all the factors that have contributed to addiction are addressed. These programs also have enough time to really focus on relapse prevention. For these reasons, long term programs have excellent success rates.

Short Term Treatment Programs

Lasting between 28-30 days, short term programs begin with a detox phase that lasts several days as patients detox from the substance they’ve abused. After detoxification, patients move on to outpatient treatment, which involves regular counseling sessions and taking individual or group substance abuse classes. When long term programs aren’t a good option, particularly for individuals who must continue on with their obligations in life, short term treatment programs in Washington offer an excellent choice.

Outpatient/Inpatient

An outpatient program allows Washington patients to live independently, but they will need to have regular sessions with a behavioral health counselor. You’ll also go through individual or group drug counseling, or you may even attend both. Many different therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, are used in outpatient programs to help patients recover.

With an inpatient program, you’ll stay in rehab facilities full time while going through treatment. The benefit of inpatient programs is that you have constant medical care and supervision as you go through detoxification. Depending on the facility, different therapies may be used to help you recover.

Residential Treatment Services

Detox

Detox treatment lasts for several days as patients detox, and patients receive the medical care they need while going through detoxification. Medications may be prescribed to keep patients more comfortable while they’re going through the detox period. Patients also receive support along with their medical care and supervision.

Sober-living House

A sober living house offers an excellent place where patients can transition between inpatient and outpatient programs in a safe environment. It’s also a great place for patients who want to transition between a treatment program and going back to the community. Sober living houses offer excellent support and helpful services, and they are affordable for patients who may not be able to afford residential programs.

Dual Diagnosis

Patients already dealing with addiction often have mental health problems as well. It’s essential that those mental health problems be addressed along with the addiction problems for the best patient outcomes. Dual diagnosis treatment focuses on providing simultaneous treatment for both issues, increasing the chance of a successful recovery.

Commonly Abused & Treated Drugs:

Not including alcohol, marijuana is the most commonly cited drug among primary drug admissions within Washington State as of 2016. Stimulants, including methamphetamine, follow in a close second.

Conclusion:
