What are the Most Effective Drug Rehabilitation Programs?

With over 114 people dying a day because of drugs, drug overdoses have become the number one cause of injury-related deaths in the United States according to the Centers for Disease Control. Despite the staggering numbers of those struggling with substance abuse, only about 10% of addicts are lucky enough to receive treatment. Although it is impossible to apply success metrics to specific addiction treatment centers, it is a fact that addicts who complete inpatient treatment have a higher rate of success in lasting sobriety.

Substance Use Disorder

Substance use disorder can be recognized in guests who can apply to two or more of the criteria below, in a 12-month period:

  • Taking the substance in larger amounts or for longer than you’re meant to.
  • Wanting to cut down or stop using the substance but not managing to.
  • Spending a lot of time getting, using, or recovering from use of the substance.
  • Cravings and urges to use the substance.
  • Not managing to do what you should at work, home, or school because of substance use.
  • Continuing to use, even when it causes problems in relationships.
  • Giving up important social, occupational, or recreational activities because of substance use.
  • Using substances again and again, even when it puts you in danger.
  • Continuing to use, even when you know you have a physical or psychological problem that could have been caused or made worse by the substance.
  • Needing more of the substance to get the effect you want (tolerance).
  • Development of withdrawal symptoms, which can be relieved by taking more of the substance.

Substance use disorders are progressive, and to initially treat a substance use disorder, it is highly recommended to attend a medical detox center, like our medical detox centers at Royal Life Centers at Puget Sound. Royal Life Centers at Puget Sound is advanced in drug or alcohol detoxification treatments, bringing you back to optimal physical health and beginning addiction treatment with therapy simultaneously.

Substance use disorder is best treated first at an inpatient level of care. Royal Life Centers at Puget Sound offers two treatment programs at an inpatient level of care, including medical detox and residential inpatient. We offer intensive therapy through out both of the programs that we offer, because addiction treatment is hardly ever just regaining physical health. Royal Life Centers at Puget Sound works on emotional health and spiritual health, in addition to physical health. We know that treatment should include recovery at the mental, physical, and spiritual levels. Royal Life Centers at Puget Sound will provide a variety of therapeutic options to uncover the root cause of a substance use disorder, teaching guests about substance use disorder, coping skills, emotional regulation, how to build a sober support network, and relapse prevention, among many other topics.

Where To Start

Inpatient treatment is often the first step in drug rehabilitation, like our Medical Detox services in Royal Life Centers at Puget Sound. Medical detoxification is extremely important, because the detox process can be dangerous and even life threatening. At our medical detox, medical professionals supervise our guests 24/7 to provide assistance and support through out their recovery process. Medical detox is the best program to initially treat substance use disorder, as guests need the guidance and supervision of medical professionals as they undergo the withdrawal process. Royal Life Centers at Puget Sound will offer our guests medication to treat their symptoms of withdrawal, and create a safe and comfortable environment. Next, guests should transition into our residential inpatient program to continue the addiction treatment they started in detox.

Drug Rehabilitation

When asking what are the most effective drug rehabilitation programs, the only true answer is a drug rehab that uses comprehensive addiction treatment programs. Comprehensive addiction treatment is alcohol or drug addiction treatment that offers a variety of services alongside therapy. Royal Life Centers at Puget Sound offers comprehensive addiction treatment.

Upon entering Royal Life Centers at Puget Sound, our guests will be assigned to a primary therapist and a case manager. Case management is for the purpose of handling any on-going legal troubles, assisting in services like applying for government aid, etc. Our guests will also work with their case managers to develop their own treatment plan, which is individualized and determines the types of programs that will work best for them. We also offer services for family members, because addiction doesn’t only effect the addicted. Our all-encompassing programs provide regular visits with medical professionals for the support of mental and behavioral health.

Types of Treatment

Royal Life Centers at Puget Sound offers a medical detox program and our residential inpatient program. Our medical detox services can last for either 4 or 8 days, depending on our guest’s health status evaluation. Royal Life Centers at Puget Sound provides an inpatient level of care with our residential treatment programs. Our residential inpatient program is a 2-week program that continues the work started in detox. We provide intensive therapy and regular conversations with medical professionals to support health in all aspects. Royal Life Centers at Puget Sounds provides a variety of therapies, including: individual therapy sessions, group therapy, support groups, and art therapy. Our holistic approach treats our guest’s mind, body, and spirit for a full recovery.

Our other treatment facilities at Royal Life Centers provide different treatment program options, including: a partial hospitalization program (PHP), intensive outpatient program (IOP), outpatient program (OP), sober living and graduate housing. Royal Life Centers offers a 9-week program that transitions guests from our partial hospitalization program (PHP), to our intensive outpatient program (IOP). This 9-week program includes intensive therapy, and guests live in our sober living housing option. Our guests usually complete the 9-week program and choose to move to our outpatient treatment program. The combination of our programming is crucial to anyone looking for long term sobriety, because we transition guests seamlessly through the recovery process— teaching vital tools and forming healthy habits that all support sobriety.

How To Get Started with Drug Rehabilitation

Drug rehabilitation should always start with medical detox services initially, to safely remove a substance or substances from the body. Royal Life Centers at Puget Sound offers medical detox services to jump start the recovery process. Following detox, we offer a residential inpatient program to continue the work of addiction treatment.
