Inpatient Rehab Centers Near Bainbridge Island, Washington

Inpatient drug addiction treatment involves the addict staying at a facility for some time while they detox from the drug or go through withdrawals. Inpatient treatment facilities are staffed with trained medical professionals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Inpatient rehab has been very helpful for many former addicts of alcoholics - in fact, inpatient treatment has the highest success rate of any addiction recovery option. This means that those who choose inpatient treatment are least likely to relapse.

In and around Bainbridge Island, there are several options for inpatient drug and alcohol rehab facilities. If you’re considering an inpatient treatment center near Bainbridge, keep reading to learn the pros and cons of inpatient recovery methods.

The benefits of inpatient treatment include:

  • Constant supervision. This decreases the risk of medical emergencies during withdrawal. It also lowers the likelihood of a relapse during recovery.
  • Structure. Most inpatient rehab facilities provide their patients with a full schedule of activities. This means that patients have less time to seek out or think about the substance they were abusing or addicted to.
  • Time away. Often, those who are addicted to drugs or alcohol recover best by removing themselves from their normal situation. Inpatient rehab allows the patient to focus on themself and not be influenced by friends, family, or environment.
  • Support. Inpatient rehab facilities offer 24/7 support for those going through withdrawals or cravings. This decreases the chance of a relapse because someone is always there to encourage and enforce sobriety.

The drawbacks to inpatient addiction treatment include:

  • Time. Those staying at an inpatient rehab facility while they recover must have the time to take off of work or school to recover. They are usually not allowed to leave the treatment facility during their stay.
  • Removal from Support System. For many people, being away from their friends and family during treatment can be difficult. In inpatient facilities, patients have limited, supervised contact with anyone outside the facility in the hopes of cutting off all contact with anyone who would encourage the patient to relapse.
  • Money. Because inpatient treatment is all-inclusive, it is usually the most expensive treatment option for those recovering from drug addiction, drug abuse, or alcoholism.

Despite the high success rate of inpatient addiction treatment, it’s not the right option for everyone. Because addiction is different for everyone, the route to recovery will be too. Keep reading to learn about outpatient recovery treatments in Bainbridge Island, as well as free recovery resources in Bainbridge Island.

Outpatient Rehab Centers Near Bainbridge Island, Washington

Outpatient addiction treatment facilities are those that patients attend regularly for some sort of treatment session, but leave at the end of their appointment. Many people in Bainbridge Island prefer outpatient treatment, and it can be very successful for some people.

If you think that outpatient addiction recovery might be right for you, consider the pros and cons.

The benefits of outpatient treatment include:

  • Time. It is possible for someone to go through outpatient rehab and continue to go to work or school and otherwise continue their normal life.
  • Money. Outpatient rehab is usually cheaper than inpatient rehab because the patient is paying only for treatment, not also living costs.
  • Support System. For those with supportive friends and families, outpatient treatment can be a good option. They can continue to be around their loved ones while they recover from their addiction.

The potential downsides to outpatient treatment include:

  • Unsupervised Time. Any time spent outside the treatment facility is time where a thought about the patient’s drug of choice could lead to seeking out or using that drug. Outpatient treatment means that the patient has a lot of unsupervised time that could easily turn into a relapse to addiction or abuse, which is exactly what the patient is trying to avoid.
  • Unenforced Appointments. Those in outpatient rehab are left on their own to make sure they get to appointments on time and cope with cravings in a healthy and positive way. Often, addiction can damage our willpower. Even the strongest-willed addict has the potential to relapse when left unattended or experiencing withdrawal symptoms after missing an appointment.

Outpatient recovery looks different for each patient. There are several different types of therapy available, and different types work for different people. These include:

Cognitive behavioral therapy

  • Focuses on developing healthy coping strategies for problems. These problems include those that caused your addiction or alcoholism or those caused by your addiction or alcoholism.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy has been found successful both on its own and together with other therapies.

Individual therapy

  • One-on-one therapy between a recovering addict and a therapist.
  • Individual therapy can be individualized cognitive behavioral therapy (above) or psychoanalysis.

Family counseling

  • Group sessions between therapists and whole families, of which one member has suffered from some drug addiction or alcoholism.
  • Family counseling addresses the ways in which an addict or former addict has hurt their family or other loved ones. It also provides ways to make amends and for families to hold the former addict accountable for his or her sobriety.

Group therapy

  • Group sessions that include one or more therapists and several people struggling with the same problem (for instance, Percocet addiction, alcoholism, cocaine addiction, etc.)
  • Group therapy allows individuals to see that they are not alone in their struggle or recovery and learn techniques and idea from others in the same situation.

Holistic therapy

  • Focuses on the health and strength of all parts of the person - physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental
  • Holistic therapy can often lead to big lifestyle changes. It addresses more than the drug addiction or alcoholism - it focuses on balancing health in all areas to treat the underlying cause of the addiction.

Motivational enhancement therapy

  • Aims to help patients who have not yet decided to stop their addiction or who are unsure of committing to therapy
  • Motivational enhancement therapy involves no more than five therapy sessions. In these sessions, addicts or patients talk through their addiction and healthy coping strategies.

Remember: Deciding that outpatient treatment isn’t for you doesn’t mean you’re weak. It just means that you want to get all the help you can to make your recovery and journey to sobriety as successful as possible. For some, outpatient treatment works. For others, it doesn’t.

Free Addiction Recovery Resources On and Around Bainbridge Island, Washington

Not every resource for addiction and alcoholism recovery costs money. There are Alcoholics Anonymous groups, Narcotics Anonymous groups, churches, and community centers on Bainbridge Island that offer drug addiction recovery services for free.

It can be difficult to get started in one of these groups on your own, but you’re not alone. With so many options for addiction recovery on Bainbridge Island, you can try several groups until you find one that’s a good fit for you.

Below, we list regularly-occurring Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings.

Alcoholics Anonymous on Bainbridge Island

Alcoholics Anonymous, or AA, is a 12-step program designed to support those recovering from alcoholism or alcohol abuse.

The program is based on 12 steps of recovery. Upon completion of these steps, the participant becomes a sponsor for a newer member and aids this newer former addict in the recovery process.

The 12 steps of AA are:

  1. We admitted that we were powerless over alcohol; that our lives had become unmanageable.
  2. We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
  3. We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood him.
  4. We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
  5. We admitted to God, ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
  6. We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
  7. We humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
  8. We made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
  9. We made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except where doing so would injure them or others.
  10. We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted to it.
  11. We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

AA’s use of “God as we understand him” means that they are not a group affiliated with a specific religion. People of all faiths and cultures are welcome, as long as they are respectful and want to recover from alcoholism.

Drug Overdose or Alcohol Poisoning on Bainbridge Island - What To Do

If you suspect that you or a loved one has overdosed on drugs or has alcohol poisoning, it’s best to get professional medical help as quickly as possible. In case of an emergency, always call 911.

Washington state has a Good Samaritan Law, so you cannot be prosecuted for drug use, possession of drugs, or underage drinking if you call 911 to seek emergency medical help for yourself or someone else experiencing an overdose or alcohol poisoning. Never let fear of the law keep you from seeking professional help for a drug overdose or alcohol poisoning.

The death toll from the American opioid epidemic gets higher every day, and it’s best to be prepared for the worst if you or a loved one is regularly using heroine or other opioids.

An overdose of heroin will lower the user’s heart rate and breathing until the user is dead unless medical action is taken quickly.

Both Narcan and Evzio are drugs approved by the U.S. FDA for the immediate treatment of heroin overdoses until emergency medical help can arrive.

If you or someone you know regularly uses heroin, it’s a good idea to make sure that a reliable friend or family member regularly carries one of these treatment options and knows how to administer it correctly. Forms of these drugs are available as injections and nasal sprays.

It’s a good idea to review regularly the proper usage of these treatments so that the person administering it doesn’t panic under pressure.

Even if someone administers Narcan or Evzio, they should also call emergency medical personnel. These immediate treatments are not meant to be the only response in case of an overdose.

Cocaine overdoses can also kill a user very rapidly, so it’s important to think and act fast if you think you or a loved one has overdosed. First, call 911 immediately.

Once you have called 911, there are three things you can do while waiting for help to arrive:

  1. Apply a cold compress to the person who has overdosed. This will help keep their body temperature at a safe level.
  2. If the person is experiencing seizures, try to move sharp objects or furniture away from them so they do not injure themselves. Lower them to the floor and keep their head far from hard objects. Do not try to restrain the addict if they are having a seizure, and if possible, ensure they have nothing in their mouth.
  3. Stay with the person until help arrives, and follow the instructions of the emergency line operator.

Prescription drugs are different, so overdoses will look different depending on the drug. In an emergency, you should always dial 911 and seek medical help.

You can also call your local poison control center for more information on what to do during a prescription drug overdose in Bothell.

Northpoint Evergreen Bellevue.

“Today I celebrate 11 months of sobriety and I give all the credit to the staff of Northpoint Recovery. I struggled with addiction issues with both alcohol and cocaine for the better part of 25 years. I tried many times to quit on my own and went through programs offered through the Veterans Administration however nothing kept be clean and sober until I made the call to NPR and through there 28 day in-patient program and the professional care that I received both while an in-patient and after care I am proud to say that I am a happier, healthier person. If you truly want a better life for you and your loved ones you owe it to yourself to walk through the doors of NPR and into a brand new you.” - Kevin D. Fletcher via Facebook

Northpoint Recovery Idaho.

“I recently departed NPR on 9/7, because my ins company refused to pay anymore. While that's the last thing anyone ever wanted to hear the staff and my peers were very supportive.

When you recover at NPR its not just a place to recover you become a family member of NPR. My peers knew at my coin out that I was not ready to leave and they all stepped up my first weekend home, by blowing up my phone just to make sure I was okay.

The staff is ridiculous nice, you can tell they truly do love their job and care about you.

The counselors like to get down to the grit and find out exactly why you started using and how to cope with those situation.

The facility does keep you pretty busy with everything from the gym and yoga 3 times each weekly to meeting's and educational groups daily.

I am glad my dr recommended this place. And I would 100% recommend this place to anyone in the future.” - Richard Bajnoczy via Facebook

Ashwood makes sure to teach about the addiction model, helps you build a good peer support system and have counselors that genuinely care about you. The alumni activities are lit. The staff is lit. And I'm lit on recovery.” - Christian James Tovar via Facebook
