Addiction Treatment & Rehab Centers in Maine

Addiction Rehab Process

Addiction Rehab Process in Maine

Total Rehab centers in Maine

Addiction treatment programs are beneficial for anyone struggling with drug and/or alcohol abuse or addiction. Drug and alcohol rehab is a long-term process and recovery can look different for everyone since no two people have the same exact needs or situation. Typically, when an individual enters rehab, it will occur in stages that includes detox, treatment, and aftercare, if necessary, and meet the specific needs of the patient.

Self Assessment

Substance Abuse Assessments for Drug and Alcohol Addiction in Maine

Admission into a drug and alcohol addiction treatment program is an important part of the treatment process. The intake and evaluation components are key in determining each patient’s individual needs to design an appropriate, effective treatment plan. The treatment process should be comprised of detox, treatment, and aftercare, if necessary, and meet the specific needs of the patient.

Individuals will be diagnosed by a treatment specialist using the DSM-IV Diagnostic Criteria for Substance Abuse. Diagnosis of co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis (having both a substance use disorder and a mental health condition) should also occur at the intake and evaluation stage to assess the addiction problem, general health status, living situation, and any other concerns.

Detox Centers

Detox Centers in Maine

Detox is the first step of the recovery process for individuals diagnosed with a substance use disorder. Detox will usually take 3, 5, 7, or 10 days, depending on the patient’s needs and situation. Medical detox provides evaluation and oversight by treatment professionals and involves the use of medication to relieve discomfort, taper off drugs or alcohol, and stabilize the patient. Once detox is complete, patients typically enter inpatient or outpatient treatment where issues such as co-occurring medical or mental health conditions can be managed and treated.

Recovery and Aftercare in Maine:

Recovery and aftercare are important steps in the lifelong process that begins once addiction treatment is complete. The ongoing support that aftercare provides can help prevent relapse and increase chances of long-term recovery success. Aftercare can include mutual support groups, individual/group/family therapy, and sober living homes.

Information about rehab in Maine

ME Substance Abuse Facts 

In Maine, a state with an estimated population of over 1.3 million people, prescription drug abuse continues to be a serious public health problem.1

Below are some key facts to understand the scope of substance abuse in Maine:1,2

  • In 2015, 272 people died from a drug or alcohol overdose—representing a 55% increase since 2013.
  • In 2015, 4 out of 5 overdose deaths involved an opioid.
  • 3 out of 10 overdose deaths were benzodiazepine-related.
  • Heroin use is on the rise and is most prevalent in the southern and coastal parts of the state including York, Cumberland, Androscoggin, Kennebec, and Knox.
  • The number of deaths related to heroin, morphine, or fentanyl nearly doubled between 2014 and 2015.
  • In 2015, there were more than 1,000 notifications to Child Protective Services of babies exposed to drugs or alcohol.
  • Of all infants born in 2015 in the state, 8% had already been exposed to drugs or alcohol at birth.
  • In 2010, the cost of substance abuse in Maine was estimated to be over $1.4 billion.

Getting Addiction Treatment Help

Across the state, alcohol remains the most commonly used substance, followed by tobacco, marijuana, and prescription drugs.1 In 2015, more than 1 in 3 treatment centers listed alcohol abuse as the primary reason for patient admission, followed by heroin use. The number of people seeking treatment for heroin-related substance use disorders has risen steadily over the past 5 years, exceeding synthetic opiates (such as fentanyl). Among pregnant women, more than 8 out of 10 admissions to substance abuse treatment are related to opioids.1

Given the serious medical, social, and personal harm that addiction can place on an individual, it’s important to seek treatment. You can begin by calling treatment centers and seeing what services they offer. If you have insurance, it will likely pay for some basic treatment services.

It’s a good idea to make a list of questions beforehand, including cost and payment options, what types of insurance plans are accepted at the facility, room types (private vs. shared), visitor policies, and so on. For additional help finding the treatment center that’s right for you, call today to speak to a support specialist.

Where Else Can I Find Help?

For many people, cost of rehab remains a huge barrier in seeking treatment. If you do not have insurance or enough money to cover the cost of private rehab, there are ways you can get care. For example, many centers offer services based on a sliding scale, meaning that you can pay what you can based on your income.

If you are searching for a treatment program in your area, you can use SAMHSA’s free treatment locator tool. Once you enter your zip code, you can view the rehab centers in your area. You can ask the center about payment options, and what resources they offer for someone who does not have funds or insurance. There may also be local resources that help people in addiction recovery get the help they need. For example, the Portland Recovery Community Center located at 468 Forest Ave. in Portland, Maine, offers all services free of charge. You can reach them by calling (207) 553-2575.
