Substance Abuse FAQS

What is Substance Abuse?

Substance abuse refers to overindulgence or psychological and/or physical dependence on addictive substances such as alcohol, heroin, or opioids. If you or your loved ones are suffering from substance abuse or addiction, you are not alone.

According to latest statistics:

What is Substance Abuse Treatment:

Substance abuse treatment is complex and involves several components such as medications, individual and group support/ counseling, treatment of underlying mental health issues, and holistic care to improve physical and mental wellbeing. There are various facilities that are specifically designed to treat substance use disorder with support and care. The treatment program for substance abuse usually falls into 2 categories i.e., inpatient and outpatient rehab programs. Both programs have different features. On the contrary, the outpatient programs are part-time and are designed for patients who are already on the path to recovery. The outpatient programs allow guests to keep on participating in daily routine activities, while still attending school or office on a regular basis during their treatment.

What are Inpatient Programs:

inpatient programs are designed for more intensive and hands-on management for patients with strong physical and/or psychological dependence on alcohol and drugs. They are required to stay in a controlled facility to limit their access to drugs for thorough and intensive detox as well as behavioral treatment.

Components of an Inpatient Program are:

Medical Detox:

Medical detox involves cleansing the system of all the harmful, addictive chemicals to remove the physical dependence on the drugs/ alcohol. Medical detox is achieved by medications and therapeutic interventions to lessen the intensity of withdrawal effects. Guests are treated under the supervision of a team of trained medical and behavioral health professionals. To facilitate the intensive treatment process and to ease the intensity of withdrawal symptoms, guests are sometimes treated with medications such as suboxone, which helps in relieving the discomfort and anxiety symptoms. The drug detoxification process generally takes around 5 to 7 days. The patients will require constant care from medical professionals to make the process as painless as possible.

Residential Treatment:

After detoxification of harmful substances from the body, the guests are encouraged to stay in a 24-hour fully supervised rehab facility for optimal rehabilitation in a supportive and caring environment. The goal of a residential rehab program is to make sure the guest is healed emotionally and mentally by removing them from their everyday environment so they can focus on their mental and physical recovery. As part of residential rehabilitation at Safe and Sound, our team of experts encourages residents to learn different tools to control the urge to engage in risky behavior. Residents also adopt healthy activities and routines to remain fit mentally and physically to fight the temptation to use again. Residents also learn coping methods and meditation techniques to function efficiently without drugs and alcohol.

Outpatient Services:

Outpatient services are for those guests who are already being treated and want to maintain their sobriety. This program doesn’t require the guests to remain in a rehab center for treatment, instead, the guests can receive treatment during the day or on the weekends

Partial Hospitalization Program:

This type of treatment plan is specifically designed for guests who want to receive treatment and therapies during the day only. There are different types of therapies and outpatient programs at Safe and Sound and these are designed to cater to the individual needs and requirements of our guests. As part of their programs, our guests learn coping skills. They also receive counseling and support from their peers or supervisors as part of a group or individual therapy. The partial hospitalization/ outpatients program allows the patients to live their normal life and carry on their daily activities while maintaining their sobriety.

Intensive Outpatient Therapy:

This program is designed for individuals who require a strategic rehabilitation program but can only do it in a schedule of their choice, generally after completing a PHP program. At Safe and Sound, we understand that every individual has different preferences, responsibilities, and obligations. That’s why our Intensive Outpatient program allows individuals to choose evening, daytime, or weekend programs to continue their treatment and beat their substance abuse disorder.
