Many people considering rehabilitation wonder if they need inpatient or outpatient help. Here we will go over the differences, so you can make an educated decision.
Inpatient treatment refers to the treatment of drug dependence in a location setting. The first part of inpatient treatment includes medically supervised detoxification. This could last up to a week and is typically the most difficult part of recovery. Length of stay will vary for an inpatient drug treatment program. Traditionally, inpatient rehab lasts 28 days. However, the last few years have seen an emergence of many different substance abuse care models, ranging from as few as 3 days and upward to a year. This type of rehab is usually reserved for very severe conditions due to the high oversight for the detox process.
With outpatient rehab, you’ll live your life like you normally would, and attend treatment programs during off-hours. Outpatient programs offer patients the greatest amount of flexibility while still providing a high standard of care Outpatient drug treatment includes a range of protocols. Aftercare outpatient services can consist of 12-step meetings, group counseling, individual counseling, vocational counseling, recovery training, and/or relapse prevention strategies.
