Drug Rehabilitation Centers in Warren County, North Carolina

Warren County is located in the northeast Piedmont region of the state, and in 2018 the population was close to 20,000 people. Like many other regions of North Carolina, the issues created by substance abuse and addiction impact the lives of people living in Warren County and neighboring counties. When beginning the search for effective drug rehab and detox options, an addiction assessment is a good place to begin. Addiction assessments occur over the phone or in-person, and it will help determine the extent of the addiction and what treatment options are available. The first step with treatment is detox, and the severity of the addiction and withdrawal symptoms determines the method of detox needed. Detoxification options include inpatient medical detox or withdrawal management and or conventional or traditional detox.

Following detox, the next step with treatment involves attending either inpatient or outpatient treatment. When deciding on what delivery method is required, the extent of the addiction would determine this. Outpatient drug rehabilitation programs are good options for someone who is still working and has family support. Intensive outpatient treatment centers are also helpful, but outpatient drug rehab requires a significant commitment because it is not a residential program. Short-term residential drug rehab centers are brief but intensive and usually last three to six weeks. Long-term residential drug rehab programs provide lengthier treatment, which usually lasts three to six months. The rehabilitation process should be well-rounded and meet the treatment needs of the person attending the program.
