Many people struggle with an addiction to drugs after experimenting. Maybe they like its pleasurable effects. Maybe using the drug helps to ease their emotional pain, relaxes them, or allows them to concentrate and get more done. Regardless of what initiates the substance use, with repeated use, a person’s brain changes, and they develop a physical tolerance to the drug. If a person has become dependent upon a drug and then tries to stop their use without professional help, they will experience unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.

Why Consider Treatment
Why consider treatment for drug addiction at Vantage Point Behavioral Health Hospital in Fayetteville, AR
By the time you realize how all-encompassing your drug addiction has become, your world may have changed so dramatically that you barely recognize it. Loved ones may have deserted you, unable to watch you self-destruct. You may begin to experience the negative health effects of drug addiction and not know what to do. Unable to secure employment, you might be living off friends and family, or have been left entirely alone. It’s time to get your life back together – an inpatient treatment center or rehab can help.
An inpatient treatment center designed for people who are struggling with an addiction to drugs or alcohol provides a safe, secure environment where you can effectively detox from the drugs in your system and learn the tools needed to build a sober, happy life. One of the major benefits of inpatient treatment and rehab is that you’ll be able to escape the triggers and pressures of your home life and focus solely upon what matters most – recovery.

Types of Treatment
Types of drug addiction treatment offered at Vantage Point Behavioral Health Hospital in Fayetteville, AR
When you come to our center struggling with chemical dependency and in need of rehab, you’ll first undergo a variety of tests to allow us to create an appropriate plan of care for your stay with us. The medical examination will determine whether you’re facing any medical complications from your drug use, as well as the types of drugs in your system. Your psychological evaluation will determine whether you’re struggling with undiagnosed or untreated mental health issues. We’ll take the results of these evaluations and sit down with you to create an appropriate plan of care for your stay at our center.
Detox: If you’re physically dependent upon drugs, detox may be the first step in your rehab and treatment plan at our center. Vantage Point offers a medically monitored detox program that provides safety and comfort as you rid your body of all drugs in your system. You’ll be monitored 24 hours a day at our center to manage withdrawal symptoms and ensure your safety.
Medication management: Medication may be used during the detox process to manage any unpleasant withdrawal symptoms and will be slowly tapered down as you learn more adaptive coping skills. Some individuals may require more long-term medication treatment to address any co-occurring mental health disorders such as bipolar disorder or depression. Medication will be closely monitored by your treatment team during your time in rehab at our center and adjusted as needed.
Individual therapy can be tremendously helpful for people who are struggling with addiction, as it provides private time to work with a therapist to address some of the problems addiction has caused in their life. Often, our center’s therapists will use a form of therapy called cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which targets negative patterns of thought and how they have impacted your behavior. We’ll teach you ways to identify these thoughts and change them into more adaptive ways of viewing the world.
Group therapy is often considered the cornerstone of addiction rehab and treatment, as it allows you to connect with other people who are struggling with similar addictions. You’ll be able to bond with others in rehab at our center, work together to solve problems, and learn healthy ways to cope during your recovery process.
Family therapy sessions can give you the support you will need for your continued sobriety and recovery. In family sessions at our center, we’ll educate your loved ones about addiction and the recovery process, discuss issues within the family dynamic, and develop strategies that your loved ones can use to help you during your rehab and recovery.
As we treat the whole person at our Fayetteville center, Vantage Point is proud to offer some experiential treatments designed to complement traditional rehab and therapeutic approaches. These may include:
- Expressive therapy
- Recreational activities
Continuing care and levels of treatment for drug addiction
As your time for discharge from our center draws closer, you’ll sit down with your family, our discharge planner, and your treatment and rehab team to determine what the next step in your sobriety journey will be. Some of our clients feel they’d like to continue to work on their sobriety in a structured rehab environment and may join a residential treatment program or sober living facility. Others may be able to discharge to a lower level of care such as an intensive outpatient program (IOP) or a partial hospitalization program (PHP), both of which allow you to focus on your recovery during the day and return home in the evenings and on weekends. Still others may be able to discharge to home from our center with referrals to traditional outpatient therapy and available community resources.
