Gig Harbor, WA Area Alcohol and Drug Rehab and Additional Addiction Recovery Options

For many people, addiction rehab and detox should be their first step when it comes to recovering. The Gig Harbor area offers several options, but what happens when a person does not do well in treatment? Fortunately, there are other ways for them to find the help they need.

Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings are two options that people may want to consider. These organizations have helped millions of people recover, worldwide. Al-Anon and Alateen are also there to help hurting families as they learn to cope because of a loved one’s addiction. 

We believe in these programs, even though we are not affiliated with them. It is important to know as much as possible about the rehab and recovery resources that are available in the Gig Harbor area.

Drug and Alcohol Treatment

Even though 12-Step meetings work for some people, they are not the best solution for everyone. Many people need to begin by going to some form of rehab, and for a lot of them, an outpatient program is exactly what they are looking for.

Outpatient drug and alcohol treatment centers have been shown to be just as effective as inpatient programs. They allow people the flexibility they need to get the help they require to stop using and recover. In addition, they allow people to work with a therapist, as well as participate in group therapy meetings. This combination can be quite powerful when an individual is focused on recovering from an addiction.

The Importance of Detoxing

In addition to going to rehab, it is essential to address the physical aspect of addiction. This is actually the first step of recovering for many people. A quality medical detox program is a requirement for many types of addictions, including alcohol opioids and stimulants.

Medical detox should only be done on an inpatient basis; even if the individual plans to attend an outpatient rehab later. This is so important because medical monitoring is necessary in the event of an emergency or complication during withdrawal.

When a person goes through medical detox, they are given medications to help with their withdrawal symptoms. These medications are specifically formulated and FDA approved for that purpose. This form of treatment is very effective, and for many people, it is an integral part of recovering from substance abuse.

How Many Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers are Located in Gig Harbor?

There are only two addiction treatment programs located directly in Gig Harbor. One offers both inpatient and outpatient care, and the other is strictly an outpatient facility. 

By expanding the search, using the SAMHSA treatment locator tool, even more results are given. There are actually more than 200 facilities that offer addiction treatment within a 50-mile radius of Gig Harbor.

Should People Choose Inpatient or Outpatient Treatment?

It is not uncommon for people to be confused about which form of treatment would work best for them. Both inpatient and outpatient rehabs can be effective, but the fact is that people have different needs. 

A person might need an inpatient program if they do not have a good support system at home. Some may even live in dangerous home situations, and continuing to stay there could result in a relapse. Also, many experts recommend this type of rehab for people who have never had any other form of treatment. 

Outpatient programs can be very effective as well, under the right conditions. They are best for people who: 

  • Are very motivated to stop using.
  • Have family and friends at home to provide support.
  • Have been through an inpatient program in the past.
  • Do not have a history of relapsing.
  • Need the flexibility that outpatient rehab provides.

Our Outpatient Recovery Program

At Northpoint the Evergreen, our outpatient program has been called one of the best in the State of Washington. We recognize that people recover differently, and the needs of our clients vary. That is why we offer three levels of care. 

Our program includes traditional outpatient rehab, an intensive outpatient program and partial hospitalization. The goal is to meet people where they are and personalize their recovery experience.

Inpatient Alcohol and Drug Treatment is Also Available in Washington

As we mentioned earlier, some people need the level of support that is only available in an inpatient setting. We also have an inpatient rehab in the City of Edmonds called Northpoint Washington

At Northpoint Washington, they offer treatment for both drug addiction and alcoholism. This includes detox and rehabilitation services. They are always careful to address their patients’ needs on an individual basis, and they provide support to families too.

Their program lasts for 28 days, and this includes the time spent in rehab. All patients receive personalized treatment plans, and they learn how to live their lives without substances.

Health Insurance Makes Rehab and Detox More Affordable Than Ever

When thoughts of going to rehab come up, people often push them away because of the costs involved. Most think that they cannot afford to go to treatment, but we want them to know that they can. 

Health insurance companies are now required to provide their customers with benefits to help pay for rehab and detox. The Affordable Care Act of 2010 made this possible. Of course, every insurance plan is different, so the levels of coverage will vary. Sometimes people find that their insurance covers more for an outpatient program than an inpatient one. 

Even so, the fact that health insurance will help pay for rehab is great news. It makes it more affordable, and it allows more people than ever to get the help they need to recover.
