Rhode Island Detox Centers

Rhode Island is being heavily affected by the country’s ongoing opioid epidemic. The Ocean State ranks among the top 15 states in drug overdose deaths — many of which involve a deadly opioid called fentanyl. Opioid addiction affects Rhode Island residents of all ages, and is costing the state millions in hospitalization and work losses.

Marijuana and heroin are other substances commonly abused in the state of Rhode Island. Those who struggle with opioid addiction often turn to heroin when painkillers become more costly and difficult to obtain. But many heroin batches contain deadly, potent substances such as fentanyl, which can lead to an overdose after just one use.

Rhode Island detox centers offer treatments that can help nearly anyone overcome addiction to any substance, including alcohol, cocaine, and opioids. Many detox treatments involve the use of prescription medications that relieve drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Use Addictions.com to find Rhode Island detox centers that can help you safely and comfortably withdraw from drugs and alcohol.

Common signs of drug abuse:

  • Problems at work or school
  • Sudden changes in personality and behavior
  • Poor hygiene
  • Drug and alcohol cravings

Those who suffer from addiction tend to prioritize drug and alcohol use above all other important life obligations. They may also display physical symptoms of drug abuse such as runny nose, sweating, and shaking. Rhode Island detox centers can help these individuals stop using drugs and alcohol and get back to clean, sober living.

Withdrawing from drugs and alcohol on your own without proper medical treatment can be difficult and risky from a health standpoint.

Choosing From Many Rhode Island Detox Centers

When you or your loved one is coping with addiction, it can be difficult to focus on finding a detox center that meets all your treatment needs. Our caring drug abuse counselors are on standby 24/7 to answer all your questions about Rhode Island detox centers and treatments.

Follow these tips when choosing a detox center in Rhode Island.

  • Look for customized detox treatments

    Choose a detox center that tailors its addiction treatments to your unique, personal history with addiction. For instance, if you’ve tried natural detox treatments in the past without success, consider choosing a detox center that uses medication-assisted treatment. Certain addiction types — such as opioid addiction — can be treated using medications that curb cravings and withdrawal symptoms to lower the risk for relapse.

  • Treat addiction as a whole

    Detox helps you overcome physical dependency on substances, but does not address underlying mental causes of addiction such as co-occurring disorders. If your addiction is being driven by a traumatic experience or mental health disorder, look for Rhode Island detox centers that also offer counseling and 12-step support groups. Treating addiction as a whole can improve your chances of staying sober long-term.

  • Envision the ideal recovery setting

    Find a Rhode Island detox center with amenities and services that can enhance your recovery. For instance, if your goal is to undergo a natural detox combined with fitness and nutrition therapy, choose a holistic detox center. If your goal is to avoid negative influences in your life, choose a detox center in another Rhode Island city so you can recover without distractions.

  • Seek affordable treatment

    Detox treatment can be made affordable for nearly anyone in Rhode Island who suffers from addiction. Look for Rhode Island detox centers that offer sliding scale payment systems and base treatment costs on income level. Most detox centers featured on Addictions.com accept major health insurance plans so you or your loved one can receive addiction treatment as needed to get clean.
