Choosing the Best Inpatient Phenobarbital Rehab Centers
Phenobarbital is a medication that is used to prevent seizures in both humans and in animals. It can sometimes also be prescribed for severe anxiety but as a Schedule IV drug, it is reserved for the most severe cases in this such use.
If you think that you or someone you love is abusing phenobarbital, finding and choosing the best inpatient rehab center may be necessary. Call our helpline at 800-681-7369Who Answers? for immediate assistance. We will place you in a treatment program that is safe for you or your loved one.
Millions of people are prescribed medications on a daily basis. Sadly, the National Institute on Drug Abuse estimates that more than 16 million people abuse prescription medications that are NOT prescribed to them. Phenobarbital addiction often results following the use of this drug in an effort to seek feelings of euphoria and calmness. Sadly, repeat use, whether prescribed or not, can lead to addiction that requires treatment.
Once you decide to get clean and sober, you must figure out how you will receive treatment. Your options generally include inpatient treatment and outpatient treatment. Both can be effective in helping you to overcome addiction but in most cases you need to get help in a residential setting first, before moving to a less-invasive, outpatient treatment program.
The primary purpose for choosing inpatient treatment for phenobarbital addiction resides around the risk for withdrawal. Suddenly reducing or completely stopping the use of this medication after tolerance and dependence have occurred can lead to:
• Rapid heartbeat
• Profuse sweating
Careful consideration of the type of treatment is vital to your recovery success. Here’s what you can expect in an inpatient phenobarbital rehab center:
• Around-the-clock therapy and monitoring
• Supportive care and 12-step recovery style treatment
• Safe, controlled medical monitoring
• Medications and intervention as needed to ensure your safety
• A place to live while you receive therapy, counseling and care
Here’s what you can expect in an outpatient phenobarbital treatment program:
• Less structured treatment
• A less controlled environment in which you attend rehab on a daily or semi-weekly basis
• You’ll perform most of your recovery efforts on your own at home
• You will not have a clean environment free from drugs or alcohol to live in unless your own home is drug and alcohol free.
While outpatient rehab is often the first choice when struggling with an addiction to phenobarbital, it’s not always the best choice. We can help you figure out what’s best, call 800-681-7369Who Answers? to be connected with a treatment advisor.
May different types of inpatient phenobarbital rehab exist to help those who are feeling the burden of this disease. It’s important that you choose a rehab program that’s ideal for you or your loved one so that you gain the greatest benefit from the treatment that you receive.
The most common types of phenobarbital rehab include:
• Christian or faith based programs
• Standard treatment centers
• Animal-assisted therapy programs
• Twelve step rehab programs
One major benefit of an inpatient rehab program that specializes in the treatment of phenobarbital addiction is the fact that you can expect the utmost care for your privacy during treatment. What this means is that you will not have to worry about any of your information being leaked to others so when you leave treatment, if you don’t want to tell anyone that you were in rehab, you really don’t have to.
The amount of time that you spend in a phenobarbital treatment program is largely dependent on you. How long have you been addicted? How much phenobarbital do you take? Are there underlying situations of addiction such as alcoholism or addiction to painkillers in addition to the addiction to this barbiturate? These are all factors that will be considered when your treatment length is determined.
Generally, treatment takes about 30-90 days in a residential setting followed by another 90 days or more of outpatient care. If you’re heavily addicted, and you require a longer stay in a detox program to help stabilize physically from your addiction, this period may be extended out further. What’s most important is that you do not let yourself compare your recovery to that of others—every case is different.
If you’re ready to get help for an addiction to phenobarbital, call our helpline at 800-681-7369Who Answers?. That’s the first step towards getting the treatment that you need. You can get help locally, or you can choose a program that is out of state.
There are benefits to both.
If you choose treatment locally, this is generally a good idea ONLY if you are going to attend an outpatient program where you will also continue to work or go to school while you are in recovery. However, outpatient treatment is NOT ideal in some cases because:
• It does not provide you with enough distance from the situations that you are accustomed to being a part of in which you use drugs such as phenobarbital.
• It does not provide adequate monitoring to ensure you REMAIN sober.
• Without distance, choosing treatment locally, you are left in an area where you know where and when to get drugs without much hassle—this can create a very difficult trigger situation.
It’s best to choose inpatient treatment for phenobarbital addiction that is NOT close to your home. Why? Because this is how you will gain the most out of the treatment process. You will gain:
• Distance from the addiction situation that otherwise has been a major part in your life.
• The ability to focus 100% of your time on treatment.
• The ability to make new friends in recovery without a focus on the old friends that you used drugs or alcohol with.
So how can you tell if you need Phenobarbital rehab? Ask yourself these questions:
• Do I take phenobarbital for any reason other than for what my doctor prescribed it?
• Do I take phenobarbital when it was not even prescribed to me?
• Is Phenobarbital on my mind all the time?
• Am I taking phenobarbital more frequently than prescribed or in manners other than prescribed?
• Have I lost my job, been in legal trouble or otherwise struggled financially, in relationships or in other scenarios as a result of phenobarbital?
• Have I promised myself or others that I would quit or cut back and failed?
If you answered yes to any of these questions then you should consider phenobarbital addiction treatment. Call our helpline at 800-681-7369Who Answers? for immediate placement into a rehab center that can help you.
One of the most common issues that arises when an addict finally choose treatment is the thought of HOW to pay for rehab. Phenobarbital rehab can be VERY expensive. If you don’t have insurance, or you’re not prepared to take loans to cover the cost of rehab, it can be challenging to find the right fit.
• How much does your current habit cost you?
• What steps do you take to ensure you have money for phenobarbital right now?
• Could you funnel some of that money toward treatment—of course you could!
Many options exist to help you pay for rehab, these include:
• Sliding fee programs that focus on your ability to pay
• Government programs that are free but generally have VERY limited beds.
• Christian programs that offer help through your church or congregation.
• Luxury programs that are self-pay or which accept insurance coverage like PPO.
• Payment plans
• Help from friends, family, relatives and others that want you to be SOBER and well.
