East Point offers personalized care and science-based treatments, providing individuals with flexible yet intensive addiction treatment options.

What Is Drug Addiction?

Drug addiction is a chronic disease that alters the brain’s chemistry and affects behavior, leading to compulsive drug-seeking and use. It is characterized as an inability to control or quit using a substance, despite causing significant problems in a person’s life. Drug addiction often results in severe consequences for both users and their loved ones, impacting them physically, emotionally, and socially.

What Is Drug Addiction Treatment and How Does It Work?

Drug addiction treatment consists of a range of interventions and ongoing support aimed at helping individuals achieve lasting sobriety. At East Point Recovery Centers, our comprehensive drug addiction treatment programs are tailored to address the unique needs of each individual. We utilize evidence-based approaches, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, 12-step facilitation therapy, individual and group counseling, and medication-assisted treatment to fight addiction.

Do You Need Drug Addiction Treatment?

If you are asking yourself this question, you need to approach it with complete honesty. Admitting that you need help to overcome drug use may not be easy for everyone. However, breaking free from an addiction to drugs is even more challenging, and attempting to quit on your own often leads to relapse or more damage. Some signs that you might need professional help include:

  • Unsuccessful attempts at quitting drugs
  • A reliance or dependency on drugs
  • Feelings of anxiety or agitation when not using
  • Needing increasingly larger amounts of drugs to get the same “high”
  • Neglecting your responsibilities and the people or things you love
  • Isolating yourself and lying about your drug use

Overview of Our Drug Addiction Treatment Programs

At East Point Recovery Centers, we have a range of addiction treatment programs on offer, with tailored support, resources, and guidance to help you or your loved one overcome drug addiction.

While East Point Recovery Centers does not offer drug detox, we can refer individuals who are struggling with addiction to treatment centers that offer this process. Detoxing is the first stage in drug addiction treatment and involves removing all traces of drugs from your body. It is best done under medical supervision. 

Detoxification can be intimidating, especially as there are so many misconceptions surrounding the process, but properly managed drug detoxification is a critical step in getting clean.

Intensive Outpatient Treatment at East Point Recovery Centers allows individuals to receive comprehensive addiction treatment while maintaining their daily activities, such as work, school, or family responsibilities. It incorporates individual therapy, support, and evidence-based care, providing a higher level of support and structure compared to basic outpatient services.

Our Day Treatment program is exactly what it sounds like: a treatment for addiction during the daytime. Also referred to as a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), it allows individuals to focus on their recovery from drug use while still maintaining some level of daily functioning. 

This addiction treatment program is best suited to individuals who need intensive treatment and care, but with the flexibility of returning home or to a supportive environment at night.

We understand the impact drug addiction can have on loved ones, and the importance of family dynamics in the recovery journey. Our programs include family therapy sessions which help patients and their loved ones develop practical communication skills, address underlying issues, and strengthen their support system, creating a conducive environment for lasting recovery.

Choosing the Right Drug Addiction Treatment

Choosing the right drug addiction treatment program is essential for successful recovery, and we understand that each person’s journey is unique. At East Point, we are committed to providing the highest quality of care for individuals seeking addiction treatment in Massachusetts. 

Our compassionate team of qualified professionals will work closely with you to assess your situation, discuss the available options, and develop a personalized addiction treatment plan for your specific needs and goals.

What an Average Day in Our Drug Rehab Looks Like

Each day in our addiction treatment program is designed to provide a structured and supportive environment, building a strong foundation for lasting recovery. While specific activities may vary based on the program, East Point Recovery Centers offers a structured schedule combining individual therapy, group therapy, psychoeducation, medication management, and holistic approaches. 

What to Expect After Our Drug Rehabilitation Program

The term “treatment” sometimes fuels the misconception that drug addiction can be cured when in reality, recovery is a lifelong journey. Our drug rehabilitation program is just the beginning, and we will continue to support you in maintaining a healthy, sober lifestyle. East Point provides comprehensive aftercare planning, including referrals to support groups, ongoing therapy, alumni programs, and community resources, ensuring a smooth transition into a drug-free life.

How Long Does Drug Rehab Take?

As each individual’s circumstances are unique, the duration and level of support needed to get clean will also vary on a case-by-case basis. At East Point, we offer varying program lengths as well as extended care programs. Our team of experienced professionals will work closely with you to determine the most appropriate length of addiction treatment based on your progress to date, personal goals, and ongoing support needs. 

How Much Does Our Drug Addiction Treatment Cost?

How much a drug treatment program costs relies on a number of factors, including the level of care, duration of treatment, and amenities. Other factors that can influence cost include the need for drug detox, and medication maintenance for substance dependence. 

While financial concerns may arise, it’s important to consider the higher costs associated with ongoing drug use, such as legal fees, job loss, and hospitalization. Seeking addiction treatment can ultimately lead to long-term savings and improved well-being.
