Even though the San Antonio Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse or SACADA attempts to limit drug abuse and addiction on the streets of San Antonio with youth prevention programs and other information resources, drugs remain a problem in the city of San Antonio, Texas.
If you or someone you care about is addicted to drugs and struggling with this serious disease, our mission is to help you find care at a trusted drug rehab.
What Happens During the Detoxification Process?
The first essential step toward recovery and sobriety is the detoxification process. Many of those who attend rehab treatment programs do not understand this process, and it can be a scary idea to quit your drug of abuse cold turkey.
But when you go through rehab at a certified rehab center, you will not necessarily be quitting your drug of choice cold turkey, but you will be getting your body and mind off drugs. If serious withdrawal symptoms are expected based on your drugs of choice or how addicted you are, detoxification medications may be used. Withdrawal symptoms are serious, but if you are being medically monitored by professionals, you will be safe.
Concerns to Consider Before Entering a Rehab Program
There are many things to consider before you start your treatment program. Ask yourself these questions before you decide on the rehab program for you.
- Should I choose an inpatient or outpatient program?
- Do I need a specialized detox program?
- Do I want a holistic or faith-based approach for my rehab?
- How long should my rehab last and how will I make arrangements with my school or workplace?
- Will the detoxification process and rehab be covered by my insurance?
- Should I travel for my rehab in order to be more private and personal?
Should You Travel for Treatment?
For many of those addicted to drugs or alcohol, your first course of action will be in deciding geographically where you want to attend treatment. While those who are interested in outpatient care will be best served by attending a treatment center in their hometown, those who are concerned about privacy or who need to make special arrangements for their care may be interested in going to surrounding cities and traveling for treatment.
For example, you may prefer a faith-based approach to recovery that matches your religious choices. In other situations, your choice of drug and alcohol rehab center may be solely based on how holistic the center’s approach to recovery is. In either of these cases, travel may be necessary in order to fulfill your personal requirements for treatment. We can help you make the decision on whether or not travel for treatment will be the right choice for you or your loved one.
