When searching for drug treatment within the state of Nevada, there are different options to consider. Following an assessment, the next step is detox or withdrawal management. However, detox alone does not sustain long-lasting recovery. Detox mitigates the withdrawal symptoms, but counseling and or therapy tackles the underlying issues. The inpatient or outpatient drug rehab centers in the state treat all forms of addiction. Counseling is vital, and sobriety is challenging to achieve without proper counseling or therapy. However, many drug users feel if they are only required to receive outpatient treatment, that is all they will do.
