Substance Abuse Stats in the State of Iowa  

Though the state of Iowa has lower-than-average substance abuse statistics, some of the numbers are still quite concerning.

That was a rate of 11.5 per 100,000 residents, compared to 21.7 for the country as a whole.

Choosing Between Outpatient and Inpatient Rehab

Outpatient and inpatient rehab are the two basic options you have when seeking treatment.

Inpatient rehab is the most effective option, and it involves living at the rehab facility under 24/7 monitoring. During your stay, you will take part in therapy and receive support from staff and peers.

Outpatient rehab requires you to live at home and travel to the treatment center for therapy. This is best for those who can’t take off work or leave small children at home.

How Long Can Treatment at Rehab Last?

The length of rehab varies from a few weeks to a year or longer. Studies show that 90 days is the minimum for effective treatment.

Treatment centers tailor the length of treatment to the needs of each individual. The stronger your battle with addiction, the longer you should stay in treatment.

Many programs last much longer than 90 days. Some people will choose to stay in some form of rehab indefinitely to give the best chance of success.

What to Expect at Rehab

Rehab centers use a variety of therapy methods. The most effective options include:

  • Medication – Medication can shorten the withdrawal period or make cravings for drugs or alcohol less intense.
  • Therapy – Therapy focuses on the thinking behavior surrounding addiction. Both group and individual therapy are common.

During your time at rehab, you will spend time learning sober living skills and exploring the emotions and behaviors that make addiction a struggle.

Treatment centers should personalize treatment options for each patient.

When Would You Need to Go to Detox?

Most therapy centers recommend that their patients go to detox. You may need detox if:

  • You cannot stop using drugs or alcohol on your own.
  • You know you struggle with addiction.
  • Your life is suffering because of your addiction.

Detox provides a safe and supportive environment during the first days of rehab. During detox, your body will go through withdrawal, which has intense symptoms. Medical intervention is key.

How Long Is Detox?

Your treatment provider will help you choose the right stay length during detox. This may range from a few days to a few weeks, at which time you transition to regular rehab.

The types of drugs you use, how long you have used them, and what your behaviors all dictate how long your detox stay is. Completing the recommended detox program greatly reduces your risk of early relapse.
