Help is Possible

It would appear at first glance that drug addiction is much more of a large city issue and would only rarely be seen in rural regions like Iowa. However, drug addiction can and does happen in Iowa, particularly in the fields of painkillers and alcohol. When someone realizes that they have a problem with drugs in Iowa, they face the uneasy decision of deciding where to get help. Should they leave the state entirely and go to a private center in nearby U.S. states, possibly even Canada? Or maybe they will visit a clinic once a week to help them, and they can at the same time continue their regular life? If the latter is what is needed, you have come to the right place. Iowa is home to a few Outpatient treatment centers, as well as drug assistance groups and counselors dedicated to helping individuals live a drug-free life. It is no secret that outpatient treatment is less effective than long-term treatment in a private center. However, when the long term options cannot be done, due to financial or time restrictions, an Outpatient program should be done. Whatever your choice is, the important part is that you do something about it. Whether a friend or yourself have a problem with drug addiction, it is important that you act. If you are not able to get long-term treatment in a drug treatment center, then outpatient treatment is the best option. Start by calling us and we will gladly help you find the best solution to drug addiction in Iowa.

What is Outpatient Drug Rehab?

Outpatient drug rehabs are not live-in treatment centers, and a patient will attend daily therapy during the day and will return home in the evening. Because of this process, it is important that a client work very hard to maintain their sobriety, but outpatient centers will conduct random drug testing to help ensure this. Methods used within each center will differ, but addicts can find different types of counseling and therapy at each.

Outpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is available all throughout the state of Iowa, and in fact, there are over 60 different centers available for patients.
