Substance abuse is a serious problem in many people’s lives, and can create a hopeless feeling amongst loved ones and friends. Know that recovery is possible—it’s a process that takes willingness and dedication, but it can change a person’s life. Generally, the recovery process begins with substance abuse treatment.
There are more than 200 different substance abuse treatment facilities in Kansas, and each will offer different services and have unique specialties. As you search for a facility, consider what you’re looking for in treatment and take the time to see what different facilities offer. There are mainly outpatient facilities in Kansas, which offer daytime treatment services and are commonly sought out after a stay in inpatient treatment.
There are fewer inpatient rehabs in Kansas, but these facilities are often crucial to long-term recovery. Research has shown that longer stays in treatment and more involved participation in treatment activities lead to greater success in recovery. At an inpatient facility, there is 24/7 access to care and separation from day-to-day stresses, which may distract you or a loved one from the treatment process.
Many clients with substance abuse have other underlying conditions that contribute to their substance abuse behaviors. Some clients have experienced various traumas or forms of abuse, while others live with co-occurring mental illnesses. In cases like these, it can be helpful to seek treatment at a dual diagnosis rehab, where treatment is offered for both substance abuse and any contributing conditions.
Many facilities connect clients with self-help programs and groups, like 12-step recovery groups. Some facilities will also offer special groups geared towards specific groups of clients, such as criminal justice and DUI clients, adolescents, seniors, veterans, or clients living with infectious diseases like HIV and AIDS. The best thing to do is to reach out and ask facilities about what they offer.
