Washington Rehabs

People know the Evergreen State for its coffee, music scene, software companies, and airplane manufacturing. But, it’s also region defined by an abundance of natural beauty. There are bays, islands, and fjords, as well as mountain ranges and temperate rainforests. There’s even an active volcano, Mt. Rainier. It’s no wonder the Pacific Northwest is known for its outdoorsy residents.

Sixty percent of Washington’s citizens live in the Seattle metropolitan area. In fact, Seattle has a population of over 650,000 people, and the next most populous city, Spokane, only houses a little over 200,000 people. But, that doesn’t mean that all of the drug and alcohol abuse in the state is concentrated in that region. People across the entire state struggle with addiction.

If you or someone for whom you care dearly are suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction, you need to get help from a Washington rehab center. It is the mission of to give you the information you need to make an educated decision about the treatment you need. Let us help you sort through the many of the Washington rehab centers available to you.

Causes & Signs of Drug Abuse

The reasons people begin using drugs and alcohol vary from one individual to another. Some people start using to cope with an existing mental illness. Others just want to get high and have a good time. Still others begin because a doctor has given them a prescription. Each of these starts can lead to an addiction.

If you are concerned that someone close to you has an addiction, you may have a hard time verifying the validity of your suspicions because substance abusers are very secretive. However, there are some sign and symptoms you should look for.

  • Pronounced changes in behavior
  • Withdrawal from family and friends
  • Reduction in social, recreational, or occupational activities
  • Financial difficulties
  • Decline in grooming and appearance

The number one substance of abuse in Washington is alcohol. The percentage of residents with a dependency (7.6) exceeds the national average (6.7 percent). People with an alcohol addiction will lie about drinking, black out regularly, have difficulty ceasing their drinking once they start, and feel terrible when they don’t drink. If you are seeing these signs in the life of someone you love, your concern is justified.

Choosing From Many Washington Rehabs

When you accept that you or a loved one no longer have control over substance use, it’s time to find the right Washington rehab center for your situation. You will discover the state offers many first-rate facilities, but you will have to take your time and determine which will provide you with the best chance of recovery success.

When you are doing your research and making your decision, think about these factors:

  • Inpatient or Outpatient

    Many people opt for outpatient treatment because it allows them to continue taking care of responsibilities in their home and workplace. These types of facilities provide excellent care, but they aren’t the best option for everyone. Some people need to be removed from their daily life and given the opportunity to focus all of their energy on recovery. Inpatient treatment is better for these people as it is the more intensive treatment of the two. Whether you opt for inpatient or outpatient care, we can help you find a quality Washington rehab center.

  • Detox

    Every person who attends rehab has to go through a period of detoxification, during which drugs and alcohol are processed out of their system. It is a difficult undertaking and can even prove fatal in some instances. Although some people can detox independently, the best chance of succeeding in the process is to undergo detox at a Washington rehab center with the assistance of a trained, experienced staff.

  • Types of Therapy

    There are core therapies that are offered in all treatment facilities because they have proven consistently effective. For example, behavioral therapy (group individual, or family) will certainly be part of your healing journey. However, the degree to which other forms of therapy will help you will vary. If you have a strong spiritual affiliation, you may do well in 12 step meetings that include a large emphasis on a higher power. If you are interested in alternative medicine, you might benefit from a Washington rehab center that uses holistic practices, like yoga and meditation. Think carefully about your situation, and ask people you trust for any input they can offer when making your decision.
