Top 5 Wyoming Detox And Inpatient Rehab Centers

Updated on August 27, 2020

Though Wyoming isn’t densely populated, residents still have problems with drug and alcohol addiction. Help is available, and addiction treatment centers are open and eager to provide treatment.

As with other states, the scourge of addiction in Wyoming has been made worse because of the coronavirus pandemic, as some addicted individuals assume that treatment centers, including residential drug rehab centers, are closed. This can lead to anxiety and stress, which may result in relapsing or undergoing withdrawal without supervision.

But Wyoming’s outpatient and residential drug rehab centers are open, and they treat patients who wish to heal from their addictions through therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy, relapse prevention, the 12-step philosophy, and medical detox.

Medical helps patients with a chemical dependency withdraw from their drug of abuse in safety. They are supervised and given medications that ease cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

Choosing A Wyoming Drug Rehab Or Detox Program

An addiction treatment center is a healthcare facility, so it needs to be chosen with care and a little research.

Criteria to consider include:

  • accreditation: it’s important for an inpatient rehab facility to be accredited by an institution such as CARF. Accreditation is a sign that the rehab center adheres to high standards of treatment.
  • trauma-informed treatment: For many patients, their struggles with addiction are linked to past trauma such as sexual abuse. Trauma-informed therapies are meant to help them.
  • continuing care/aftercare: Healing from addiction can take years or can even be lifelong. An aftercare program is there for alumni who need support and reinforcement even after they graduate.

Wyoming Drug And Alcohol Detox Programs

Here are a few of the programs offered by most Wyoming alcohol and drug treatment centers:

  • detox programs: these programs support patients as drugs of abuse are purged from their system through monitoring. Medications such as buprenorphine alleviate withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
  • residential treatment: residential rehab programs help patients conquer substance abuse by offering a full spectrum of therapies, services, amenities, and more.
  • family therapy: addiction does not just affect the patient but extends to their loved ones, including their families. In this therapy, the patient and members of their family are supported as the patient recovers from their substance use disorder.
