Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment
Using both legal medications and illegal substances in order to maintain an addiction is substance abuse. If you are taking more of your prescription, or earlier than the prescribed time interval between doses than is directed you may be abusing that medication.

Detox is a drug rehab process that begins before the actual drug rehab treatment. It is used to remove any residual toxins left in your body (and brain) after using drugs, and it is used with the intent to help you or your loved one complete drug rehab.
If you are addicted to opiates like heroin, methadone, or prescription painkillers, you will detox with medication. This is because the withdrawal symptoms are often more intense and uncomfortable for an opiate addict than for someone who has abused or is dependent on other drugs, like cocaine.
Inpatient Rehab in Galax, VA
Inpatient programs are intensive regimes that require individuals suffering from serious addictions to admit themselves into a controlled environment. Inpatient programs in Virginia generally span over 28 days to six months. The first step in an inpatient program is medically assisted detox. Doctors and addiction specialists at Life Center of Galax monitor the individual’s vital signs as the drugs leave their system. Some inpatient rehab programs also provide counseling for family members to provide encouragement and emotional support. In inpatient programs, patients have access to 24-hour medical supervision.
To assist with alcohol or opioid abuse, or a co-occurring condition, Life Center of Galax offers an outpatient treatment program. For their rehabilitation and other services, the Virginia patient will go to the treatment center, yet return home every night. After most of the program is completed, the level of mandatory participation reduces.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
A partial hospitalization program is set up to cover those struggling with acute symptoms of addiction. This means that the individual is cared for in a hospital-like environment in Galax, VA during the struggle of those symptoms, but allowed to go home at night. Most PHPs require approximately six-hours of therapy, at least three days per week.
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). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.
Aftercare comprises services that help recovering addicts readjust to normal day-to-day Virginia activities. It can last a year or even longer. Services include individual and family counseling, medications to reduce cravings, and treatment of psychiatric and other medical conditions. Aftercare support begins once you have completed earlier stages of treatment.
