More Info About Rehabs in Idaho
Despite the relative newness of heroin as a problem in Idaho and the state’s stricter drug policies, measures are being taken to save lives from these dangerous drugs. Law enforcement have started to carry Narcan, a life-saving drug that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. As opioid dependence has become more common, Idaho has developed more opioid treatment programs using methadone and other medications to assist with treatment.

Each person has a different history of substance abuse, along with individual, underlying conditions that contribute to substance abuse. Whether you or a loved one have never been to treatment or have been multiple times, treatment can work and help you find freedom from substances. A key ingredient is the person at least being open to change.
Substance abuse treatment is a difficult field, because there’s no foolproof way to motivate someone to change. Even if you or your loved one isn’t willing to go to treatment, the recovery process can open the door to a new, healthier way of living. There are more than 125 treatment facilities in Idaho to choose from, and each has different specialties which can cater to your individual needs.
For people with mental health issues that contribute to substance abuse, there are dual diagnosis rehabs. Idaho rehabs also tailor certain programs to different groups of people. Beyond gender- or age-specific groups, there are also programs for clients who have experienced trauma, clients who are in the criminal justice system, as well as clients who are or were in the military.
You’ll find mostly outpatient facilities in Idaho, which offer daytime treatment services. At an outpatient rehab, clients have more flexibility to maintain some of their work and family lives. There’s a smaller selection of inpatient rehabs, also known as residential rehabs, but the intensive care and recovery work at these facilities can be important for long-term sobriety.
There’s so much to think about when choosing a rehab, so be sure to ask questions as you look into different facilities. Whether it’s your first time looking into treatment or you’ve done this before, our representatives can help you make an informed choice among Idaho’s rehabs, based on your unique circumstances. Please call us: 1-866-317-7050.
