Addiction Treatment In Quitman, MS

If you want help to stop using alcohol or drugs and live in Quitman, you have outpatient treatment within your community.

Other services are located in Meridian, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and detox services. You can find additional programs in other parts of Mississippi, including residential rehab centers and transitional housing.

Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs

You need to detox from drugs and/or alcohol if you’ve built up physical dependency. Detoxing from alcohol and/or drugs can be uncomfortable and potentially risky.

Medically supervised detox can help you overcome withdrawal safely and with as little discomfort as possible. Trying to detox on your own (cold turkey) can come with health risks.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Residential or inpatient drug/alcohol treatment offers a secure, substance-free environment along with 24-hour emotional, physical, and psychological support.

Residential substance use disorder treatment offers a holistic treatment program that includes peer group support and evidence-based group and individual counseling.

You can also participate in activities that can build your confidence in living drug- and alcohol-free, including yoga therapy, wilderness experiences, and music and art therapy.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment programs can be either intensive (IOP) or less-intensive (OP). They usually last between 10 and 16 weeks. Intensive outpatient programs meet three or more days a week.

You will receive group and individual therapy in most outpatient programs. Outpatient programs also offer education in substance use disorders and sober living skills. They can also include organized peer group support, including 12-step groups.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

You may have heard that medication-assisted treatment (MAT) can help people to stop using opioid drugs. MAT can also help people with alcohol and tobacco use disorders.

MAT combines evidence-based group and/or individual therapy with approved medications. The medications can help to reduce cravings and also give your body and mind an opportunity to heal from the effects of substance misuse.

Aftercare & Alumni Services

If you’ve completed rehab, you will probably be ready to embark on the rest of your life as a sober person. You will also want to keep building your recovery day by day.

This is where aftercare and alumni programs can come. Whether you want to stay in touch with people you formed a bond with in rehab or you want to continue to participate in therapy or peer group support, alumni and aftercare programs can help.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

Your treatment for substance abuse should be tailored for your individual needs.

Substance use disorder treatment programs fall into some common lengths, including:

  • 30-day programs
  • 60-day programs
  • 90-day programs
  • 120-day programs

How To Pay For Treatment

In Mississippi, most drug and alcohol treatment programs will accept payments from major health insurance companies. Programs may also accept payment from military insurance (Tricare) and private-pay clients.

If you need to pay privately for drug and alcohol rehab, you may be able to get scholarship help, a discount, or a sliding fee scale.
