Inpatient or Outpatient Addiction Treatment
When someone is struggling with substance abuse problems, it is very important to find a program that can help the individual overcome the problem and go on to live a life sober and substance free. There are many different methods of treatments available for drug addiction or alcoholism, which fall into two main categories: inpatient treatment or outpatient treatment.
Inpatient rehabilitation treatment programs involve a stay at a program that offers residential treatment services. Inpatient treatment can vary in length from 30 days all the way up to a year. There are many benefits of inpatient treatment, including: a structured schedule, removal from negative or triggering environments, and instruction in other areas of life, such as vocational training or religious programs.
Outpatient rehabilitation treatment programs offer many of the same services that inpatient treatment programs do, but they allow patient to live at home and receive services at the clinic. Outpatient treatment programs vary in schedule, but can be a few hours a day or once a week depending on the program. Outpatient treatment programs can work for some, but there are many downsides to these types of programs including: greater potential for relapse early in the program, easier access to substances, and having to be responsible for transportation to and from facility.
