Determining if Outpatient Treatment Is Right for You

Determining if Outpatient Treatment Is Right for YouChoosing an addiction treatment center is a big decision. You want to make sure you receive the best level of care to meet your needs under the best treatment team possible. Unfortunately, addiction can be an overwhelming situation that makes it even more challenging to make an important decision quickly.

Inpatient Rehabilitation, Outpatient Rehabilitation and Addiction Counseling

There are hundreds of treatment options and combinations available. Choosing the right treatment can help you have a successful recovery and a happier life free from addiction. The following is a simple guide to these different types of treatment:

  • Inpatient rehab. This is the most intense and effective type of rehab treatment. Inpatient treatment often includes detox services to help you overcome withdrawal symptoms. Research shows that the support provided through inpatient rehab will help you overcome addiction in the long run.
  • Outpatient rehab. Outpatient rehab typically lasts anywhere from one to five hours per day. This type of rehab allows you to return home in the evenings. It is a natural progression after leaving inpatient rehab. Like inpatient rehab, outpatient rehab can help you uncover the causes of addiction and build a stronger resistance to relapse. Outpatient rehab does not include detox services, and it works best when you have a fully supportive home environment that contains limited temptations.
  • Addiction counseling. This is the most basic type of addiction treatment. You can find addiction counseling in inpatient or outpatient rehab. Remember that not every therapist is licensed or experienced. A reputable treatment center will offer a quality addiction counseling program and provide you with references for future care.
