Inpatient Vs. Outpatient Rehabilitation in Louisiana

One of the primary decisions when you or your loved one chooses between drug rehabs in LA is deciding between Residental and Outpatient Rehabilitation. Many people are quick to choose outpatient rehabilitation thinking it will be more convenient and cost less. While this is sometimes accurate, studies prove those choosing in-patient treatment in 48-day, 60-day or 90-day programs are less likely to relapse long-term. Wherever you decide to get rehab, the first step is making a choice!

Finding an effective rehab program can be a challenge, but it you're committed to the dream of a sober life, the search is well worth your time and effort.

The Cajun culture of Louisiana and the opportunities for outdoor sportsmanship make this state a popular destination for tourists. At the annual Mardi Gras in New Orleans, partying is expected, but a long tradition of heavy drinking has increased the need for drug rehab in Louisiana.

According to the state's 2009 Substance Abuse Epidemiology Profile, close to one-fifth of residents between the ages of 18 and 25 required treatment for alcohol or drug abuse, but less than one-tenth actually received the care they needed.

Signs You Need Professional Rehab What are the obstacles that prevent Louisiana's residents from getting the treatment they need for alcohol or drug addiction? A lack of financial resources and a lack of information about affordable rehab programs in this state are common reasons that addicts fail to get help. Denial, one of the primary side effects of addiction, is another major obstacle to rehab.

If you've been battling a drug or alcohol problem, you may have wondered whether you really need a rehab program to get clean and sober.

The following warning signs indicate that you shouldn't try to get sober alone:

  • You've been drinking or using drugs heavily in the recent past.
  • You experience physical withdrawal symptoms when you try to quit (tremors, nausea, vomiting, muscle cramps, agitation, etc.).
  • You have a co-existing physical or mental health condition that requires specialized treatment.
  • You've been through rehab one or more times in the past without success.
  • You've been through alcohol withdrawal in the past without treatment.

Clinically monitored detox is safer and more effective than trying to "dry out" on your own. As part of your detox program, your treatment team will prepare you for the rehab phase of recovery. In a supportive, structured setting, you'll have the tools you need to begin rebuilding your life.

Alcohol detox should never be taken lightly. Unlike withdrawal from many other drugs, alcohol withdrawal can produce life-threatening symptoms, warns the American Academy of Family Physicians. These include:

  • Seizures
  • Hallucinations
  • Sudden high blood pressure
  • Heavy sweating
  • Rapid heart rate

*Dangers of Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome

Delirium tremens, commonly known as the DT, is a fatal condition characterized by severe tremors, delusions, fever, agitation and disorientation. Heavy drinkers are at risk of these side effects, especially when they try to quit drinking suddenly without medical support.

Paying for Drug Rehab in Louisiana

A lack of health insurance or personal income shouldn't prevent you from getting the treatment you need to overcome the disease of addiction.

The Louisiana Department of Health & Hospitals provides a list of addiction treatment programs that are accessible to state residents in need. Programs like the state's Addictive Disorders Clinics, Addiction Recovery Resources of New Orleans, and the New Beginning Outpatient recovery program Treatment Center offer inpatient and outpatient services on a free or sliding-scale basis.

Private rehabilitation services are also available throughout the Pelican State. These facilities accept a variety of payment arrangements, including health insurance, cash payments, military insurance or credit cards.

Staying close by your home city is not always helpful, as you are closer to the individuals and situations that caused the drug and alcohol abuse in the first place. Particularly if you're considering exclusive or private choices, there may be additional advantages in treating an extended rehabilitation stay like a rest and going outside Louisiana. Many of the excellent treatment facilities have services and bearings that make them more akin to 4-star resorts so rehab can be uplifting as well as therapeutic.
