Addiction Treatment & Rehab Centers in Rhode Island

Addiction Rehab Process

Addiction Rehab Process in Rhode Island

Total Rehab centers in Rhode Island

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 Rhode Island

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 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.
