Rehab centers exist in Worcester, MA to help individuals bounce back from substance abuse, which is an umbrella term for drug and alcohol addiction. Drug addiction refers to the use of illegal drugs and improper use of prescription drugs. Centers like Hector Reyes House provide individuals a chance to access individual and group therapy that can be monumental for recovery.
Substance abuse includes all problems that stem out from using various psychoactive substances. It is also a diagnostic term used by Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) to define the mental and physical impairment or distress caused by misuse and overuse of certain substances in a period of 12 months.
Alcoholism Treatment at Hector Reyes House
Alcoholism treatment focuses on lessening the thirst for alcohol and working towards the patient’s abstinence. Some individuals in Worcester find it more challenging to reach their goal of sobriety due to a lack of social support. Counseling, coupled with medications, is the core of alcoholism treatment at Hector Reyes House.
Opioid + Opiate Addiction
Opioid addiction involves addiction to legal or illegal opioids. It may happen very quickly with any opioid use. Sometimes within a matter of days. Opioid addiction is a known as a high-risk factor for future heroin addiction.
Opioid withdrawal can be extremely uncomfortable and lead the user to continue to use even if they want to quit. Stopping using an opioid requires careful medical observation. Sometimes the withdrawal can persist for many weeks, which can put the user at a high risk for relapse.
It is recommended to receive inpatient treatment and a medically supervised detox like those offered at Hector Reyes House in Worcester, MA, MA, to manage the withdrawal process while learning lasting tools to maintain recovery. In some circumstances medications can be used to manage opioid addiction.

Getting sober on your own is not only dangerous during the initial detox, it is also more likely to result in a relapse later on. Addiction treatment centers provide a monitored environment where you will get the medical attention you need, as well as the emotional support to overcome drug or alcohol abuse.
Drug & Alcohol Detoxification
Drug and alcohol addiction often takes a heavy toll on one’s body. Over time, a physical dependence can develop, meaning the body physiologically needs the substance to function. Detox is the process of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body, a process that can be lethal if mismanaged. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.

It can involve finding housing in and around Massachusetts, setting up 12-step meeting groups, continued medical monitoring, and counseling.

Outpatient treatment can be considered the lowest intensity level of addiction treatment in Worcester, MA. It is ideal for early phase addiction or lower intensity addictions. Hector Reyes House peer group support, 12-step programs, and individual counseling may still be involved.
Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months).
