Hesperia Drug Rehabilitation is a way for people who have an unhealthy dependence on drugs to develop healthy coping mechanisms apart from drugs and to make lifestyle changes that they can maintain for the rest of their lives. While the process is not always easy, Dr. Matney and his team of drug rehab professionals can help patients to succeed with proven techniques and compassionate care. Dr. Matney uses both inpatient and outpatient programs and runs the First Step Recovery Center, which serves many communities around Hesperia, as a place where lives can be changed.
Science in Hesperia Drug Rehabilitation Treatment Medication
Medication may be a big part of drug rehab treatment for some patients. Suboxone is one combination drug that has had great success for patients who are addicted to opioid painkillers. However, there are several other proven medications that may be chosen as well based on recent research and the patient’s own symptoms. Medication treatment plans are often used in an outpatient setting in Hesperia.
While medication may be necessary for some Hesperia patients, a variety of types of therapy has also been shown to work incredibly well in changing lifestyles and in decreasing emotional dependence on drugs. Behavioral counseling is often used in a one-on-one setting as well as in group settings to help patients think through and talk through their problems that led to drug addiction. Here, patients will also learn about triggers for turning to drugs, about toxic relationships that fuel drug addiction and about emotional stressors that can leave them feeling as if they must have drugs to get through the day. They will learn how to replace triggers with good options, how to change friendships and how to seek support from family, friends, healthcare professionals and other rehab patients. In-depth counseling often lasts at least a month and will usually continue in some way for years. After intensive counseling, patients are often encouraged to join a support group of recovering drug addicts that are led by a professional counselor.
