Whenever a person is in need of help, it's beneficial to know about what kind of substance abuse treatment services in Bellevue exist, and which are the best for an individual's circumstances. Choosing the wrong kind of service at the wrong time can make treatment much less effective. For example, if a person is heavily addicted to opioids and will be experiencing unbearable withdrawal symptoms and they are in a treatment setting that doesn't have medical detox capabilities, they will probably struggle greatly and end up leaving treatment to use drugs. This can cause them and others to believe that treatment isn't effective and doesn't work. In reality, the person would have been much better off going to a medical detox for several days to be gradually and comfortably taken off the opioids, and then pursued treatment. If a person's physical dependence is not very severe or they have already completed medical detox, they now have two main options for treatment, which are inpatient or outpatient treatment. Both programs can be extremely successful in helping addicts recover, as it simply depends on each of their circumstances. Selecting the right type of help is important, but not so much that it should cause a significant delay in getting them help. Waiting too long can mean the person never getting a chance to get help.
