Alcohol and Drug Use Statistics in Dearborn Heights, Michigan

Let’s take a closer look at the substance use statistics for Wayne County:2,3

Levels of Substance Abuse Care

There are several levels of care for addiction treatment. Some people enter treatment at one level, while others start with inpatient and make their way through the continuum of care.

Alcohol and Drug Detoxification

Detox is the process of safely and comfortably removing drugs or alcohol from your system. Performed under medical supervision in a hospital, residential, or outpatient setting, your withdrawal symptoms are comfortably managed, allowing you to transition into formal treatment services.

Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab

Residential or inpatient treatment involves living at the rehab facility and receiving 24/7 care under supervision. A combination of treatment interventions are offered, including individual and group therapy, nutritional counseling, experiential therapies, and medication.

Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHPs)

PHPs allow you to live at home while attending treatment at a hospital. You may receive many of the same treatment modalities of inpatient care, with the difference being that you can return home during non-treatment hours. PHPs can be a bridge between inpatient and outpatient care.

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs)

A step down from a PHP, IOPs allow you to attend a few hours of counseling over several days each week. You spend the rest of your time at home, working, or fulfilling other obligations.

Standard Outpatient

The least intensive treatment option, standard outpatient care involves one to two hours of treatment per week. This option has the least oversight and supervision. Highly motivated people with a strong support system tend to find this level beneficial.

Relapse Prevention

Relapse prevention, also known as aftercare, begins when a rehab program is complete. People receive forms of ongoing support and encouragement through 12-step groups, non-12-step groups like SMART Recovery, ongoing therapy, sober living homes, and more.
