About Substance Abuse
Taking illegal drugs or misusing prescription drugs — whether prescribed for you or someone else — is a problem that can lead to addiction. Misusing psychoactive drugs affects the way an individual thinks and acts and has both short- and long-term adverse effects on the person’s mental and physical health.
Drug addiction is a disease, and drug users cannot stop it by sheer willpower. Drugs physically and psychologically alter the brain in ways that make quitting extremely challenging. Addiction is difficult to treat, and even after quitting for a number of years, a user may be at increased risk for relapse.
That’s why those who want to beat their addiction should enroll in an inpatient program at a professional substance abuse rehabilitation center like Buena Vista. We offer individualized, ongoing treatment and therapy to those in-state and out-of-state, and we constantly review and modify each patient’s program to fit his or her changing needs.

WHO’S AT RISK FOR A SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER?
While exactly what causes drug dependence is not known, a number of factors may contribute to an increased risk for use and addiction. These include:
- Biology (genetics and the presence of mental disorders)
- Environment (social pressure, economic status, and the overall quality of life)
- Development (the earlier the age at which drug use begins, the more likely that addiction will take hold)
DO YOU HAVE A SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER?
Here are some questions you can ask yourself to help determine if you have a substance use disorder:
- Do you continue taking a prescribed drug after the health problem no longer exists?
- Have you tried to stop or cut down on drug use, but were unable to do so?
- Do you feel intense cravings for the drug?
- Do you spend a lot of time thinking about and obtaining the drug?
- Do you spend money on the drug, even though you can’t afford it?
- Have you done anything illegal, such as stealing money, to get the drug?
- Does drug use interfere with your home, school or work obligations?
- Do you search other people’s medicine cabinets for drugs?
- Have you lost interest in activities and people you once enjoyed?
- Do you have a new set of friends and go to different places to use drugs?
- Have you driven or had unsafe sex while under the influence of drugs?
- Do you find that you need more of the drug or a higher dose to feel its effects?
- Do your friends and family tell you that you have a problem?
- Do you sleep and eat more or less than you did previously?
- Have withdrawal symptoms appeared when you cut back or stop taking the drug?
If you answer yes to any of the above questions, impatient drug rehab may be right for you. Inpatient substance abuse treatment is one of the best treatment options for substance abuse and addiction.
ARIZONA SUBSTANCE ABUSE REHABILITATION CENTER
Inpatient drug rehab provides the highest level of addiction treatment. At Buena Vista, inpatient patients receive private rooms, extensive accommodations, personalized treatment options, and daily visits with their team of doctors.
Buena Vista’s professional staff provides full-time, customized care in a safe, comfortable, and modern setting. Those who come to us for inpatient, or residential, treatment get help in dealing with their drug use as well as the mental health and physical problems it causes. Simply being away from your familiar physical environment and the friends with whom you took drugs can be powerful and help you make necessary changes. Plus, we monitor patients around the clock to help prevent relapsing.
THE BENEFITS OF INPATIENT DRUG REHAB
There are many benefits to choosing an inpatient treatment program, including the following:
- Separation from environmental factors that contributed to your drug abuse
- Higher success rates and reduced likelihood of relapse
- Transition and aftercare planning
- The opportunity to build a healthy support network
- 24/7 medical care
- A safe, drug-free environment
- A variety of substance abuse treatment options
- Structured daily routine
MEDICAL DRUG DETOX
After abusing a drug for a long time, the body develops a dependency. As a result, patients may undergo painful and life-threatening withdrawal symptoms if they try to lessen or stop their drug use. This makes the detoxification process an incredibly grueling experience, and without help, many patients relapse to halt or avoid withdrawal symptoms.
At Buena Vista, we provide medical drug detox services to help you break the cycle of addiction for good. Medical detox is a safe, effective way to rid your body of drugs and toxins while reducing your withdrawal symptoms through medications.
In addition, we work to make you more comfortable as you undergo this necessary first step in long-term sobriety.
CONTINUED INPATIENT SUBSTANCE ABUSE TREATMENT AT BUENA VISTA
After detox, we’ll help you transition into our inpatient drug rehab program to continue treatment. Inpatient substance abuse treatment is strongly recommended after detox because a detox alone won’t provide you with the tools and support necessary to overcome addiction once and for all.
We understand that no journey to sobriety is the same. That’s why we provide personalized treatment options to best suit your needs, including:
- The 12-step program
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Grief therapy
- Group therapy
- Individual counseling
- Trauma-focused therapy
As a substance abuse inpatient, you participate in therapy sessions that help patients and their families get a good understanding of abuse and addiction, and perhaps what may have contributed to the problem. Through therapy and behavior modification, you learn to function and handle your problems without the use of drugs.
We are committed to helping each patient develop the necessary recovery and life tools that he or she needs to live a healthy, drug-free, and sober life.
