How Do Rehab Centers in Reno, NV Treat Alcohol & Drug Addiction?

Since recovery looks different for everyone, multiple levels of care are available. Here are some common types of addiction treatment you’ll find in drug rehab centers in Reno, NV:

  • Medical detox. Many attend detox to safely withdraw from substances under 24/7 medical supervision before transitioning to another level of care.7

  • Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs). A PHP, or day program, is an immersive outpatient program that requires you to attend about 6 hours of treatment daily.9
  • Addiction aftercare. After formal treatment, patients often benefit from continuing care such as attending peer support meetings, ongoing therapy, or living in a sober housing facility.7

Addiction specialists in Reno alcohol and drug rehabs may use many of the same evidence-based treatment approaches in any of the settings listed above. Common treatment methods include:7
