Why Choose Rehab in Everett?

There are a couple of main reasons people might seek drug treatment in Everett. If someone lives in Everett or nearby, they might want to stay close to home. When they seek treatment close to home, it allows them to remain near their family and loved ones, allowing them to be part of their treatment and recovery.

Some people may also travel away from home to attend drug rehab in Everett. Traveling for rehab allows you to leave all of the people and situations surrounding your active addiction and focus exclusively on treatment and recovery.

Detox Centers

When someone is dependent on substances, including drugs or alcohol, they may have withdrawal symptoms when they stop substance use. These withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable and with some substances, even deadly. Withdrawal should be managed in a safe environment, such as a professionally managed Everett detox program. Along with onsite medical detox at The Recovery Village, there are around seven detox programs within 25 miles of Everett.

Inpatient Treatment

People need more than detox to complete their treatment. It’s an important first step in a treatment and recovery program, but addiction treatment needs to focus on the multifactorial nature of addiction. For many people, the start of their treatment program after detox is an inpatient rehab program. Inpatient or residential rehab offers a stable and safe environment for recovery.

Five inpatient drug rehab centers are in Everett, Washington, or within 25 miles. 

Outpatient Treatment

For some people, the next step after an inpatient program is an outpatient drug rehab in Everett, Washington, while others might begin their treatment with outpatient rehab.

Outpatient treatment provides a greater degree of flexibility. Participants can go to work, school or keep up with family commitments as they typically would, while also reporting to a treatment center for scheduled sessions. There are more than 65 outpatient treatment programs within 25 miles of Everett. Of those, 55 programs offer intensive outpatient treatment. The Recovery Village Ridgefield offers different outpatient rehab programs, including intensive outpatient programs, for people living in the region.

Aftercare Programs

The work of recovery doesn’t end with treatment. Aftercare programs are important for long-term sobriety. Aftercare programs can include check-ins at a treatment center, time in a sober-living house, rehab alumni programs and other ways people can work to deepen their recovery. The Recovery Village Ridgefield includes in-depth aftercare planning in every patient’s program so that it’s not an afterthought, but rather an integral part of treatment.
