Find Detox Centers by Cities of Louisiana
There are several detox programs available in Louisiana that utilize a more natural, holistic, alternative treatment to substance therapy. Many of these holistic centers are completely drug free, as the motto of these centers resides in the fact that many tools of healing are available right within nature and our own bodies. Some detox programs in Louisiana also offer a supplemental rehabilitation program with the goal of holding fast the progress made from shorter term body detox. In a rehabilitation environment, the patient receives counsel and care (usually 24 hour) to help them learn the life skills necessary to continuing a sober lifestyle. Detox programs that offer rehabilitation have been shown to have higher success rates in terms of securing long term sobriety.
If an individual is looking for treatment, one might approach their local doctors office. Many doctors and hospitals (those not equipped with a detox wing) will refer an individual to a trusted detox program. If the individual is looking for flexibility, most of the detox centers do provide prospective attendees information via mail or the Internet; it is unusual for any detox or rehabilitation center to keep their methods private.
In terms of finding a treatment program with the highest level of long term sobriety, an inpatient or “longer-term” treatment program is generally the best option. Inpatient treatment centers in Louisiana offer living arrangements and continued care to an attendee over longer stretches of time, at times up to 8 months. The commitment is long and the challenge is much greater, but the rewards of ultimate success are much more attainable and satisfying to one who sticks out the duration of treatment.
For those who suffer from opiate addiction, a newer “rapid detox” treatment is available. In rapid detox, specialized medication is given to a patient under general anaesthesia to provide an extremely rapid withdrawal process while the patient is sleeping. The patient is unconscious, so doesn’t feel any pain or discomfort. Rapid detox cleanses the patient’s system in a matter of hours, rather than days, weeks, or months. Detox Centers in Louisiana that offer rapid detox and now readily available.
