What To Expect After Detox
Detoxing is the opening phase of beating substance use disorders. At Sunrise Detox Center, our goal is to rid the hazardous substance from your body while addressing withdrawal symptoms. We will keep you safe and comfortable during detox with your individualized treatment plan. We also provide therapy so you may understand the triggers for your substance use. However, our detox facility is not designed to treat the persistent difficulties of substance use recovery.
Once you finish detox, you are still in a vulnerable condition. The triggers, outside influences, and emotional pain that led to your addiction may still exist in your day-to-day life. These factors put you in jeopardy of relapsing and hindering your progress in recovery. You may come across these challenges that make it tough for you to go back to your usual daily routine:
- Ongoing withdrawal complications or symptoms of Post-acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS)
- Old stressors that cause substance use
- Co-dependencies that precipitate substance use
- Pre-existing mental health disorders
- Availability of harmful substances
- Absence of positive coping mechanisms
- Subpar health habits
In advance of leaving Sunrise Detox Center, we’ll work with you to determine the following phase of your recovery. Even though there might be many avenues of treatment, the right track is where you can gain an understanding of your triggers for alcohol and drug use, boost your psychological and physical health, and work on effective strategies for coping.
Our professionals will evaluate the next facility -- either inpatient or outpatient -- and will collaborate with the new choice of care in regards to admissions, transportation, and insurance.
How To Choose Addiction Aftercare Programs
It is crucial to your health and substance use recovery to have a course of action in place for short-term and ongoing support. Prior to leaving Sunrise Detox Center, one of our expert counselors will converse with you and your loved ones to establish your aftercare plan. Our team members have considerable experience identifying the appropriate path for each patient’s needs. Your aftercare plan will include the development of recovery objectives, support from loved ones, and what the next treatment level is for you.
While your aftercare plan might vary depending on your set of circumstances, individuals typically move on to one of these types of treatment facilities:
Inpatient rehab: These residential programs provide a safe environment to stay as you are susceptible to relapse. You are supported there for several weeks or months and get substance use treatment daily. Your support centers around different sorts of therapy to explore your alcohol or drug use triggers and co-occurring mental health conditions. You might also receive medical care for urges and withdrawal symptoms.
Outpatient counseling: Some detoxification patients with less severe addictions might be ready to move straight to outpatient counseling. With Outpatient (OP) or Intensive Outpatient (IOP) care, you stay at home but attend therapy on a daily basis to cultivate coping skills, manage mental health, and get encouragement to steer clear of relapse. You may also receive medication-assisted treatment for cravings when deemed necessary.
We have an extensive network of relationships with licensed addiction and behavioral health facilities that we can endorse for aftercare addiction treatment.
Numerous Sunrise Detox Center patients elect to stay within the Praesum Healthcare continuum of care and transfer to nearby Evolve Recovery Center for inpatient care or The Counseling Center for outpatient counseling. We will also help you locate a facility outside our network to meet your needs best.
