When you enter a residential treatment program, you will typically have an initial assessment with a trained professional to determine your individual needs.
During this assessment, the staff may conduct physical and psychological tests and discuss any past or current substance abuse problems.
Once enrolled in a residential treatment program, you can expect to participate in group and individual therapy sessions, activities, and education classes.
You will also have access to medical professionals 24/7 who can help you manage any physical or psychological withdrawal symptoms.
A residential treatment program aims to provide a safe and supportive environment where the individual can work on developing healthy habits that will enable them to stay sober for the long term.
Aftercare is often available to ensure that the individual has continued support after they leave treatment.
Partial hospitalization is a step down from inpatient treatment and is typically recommended for people who no longer need 24-hour supervision but still require a high level of care.
A PHP treatment program provides more intensive care than what is typically offered in an outpatient setting.
PHP allows people to receive treatment while still living at home and attending school or work.
PHP programs typically offer group therapy, individual therapy, medication management, and case management.
Intensive Outpatient Program Intensive outpatient treatment is a step down from partial hospitalization and typically involves 3-5 hours of treatment per week. This level of care is typically recommended for people who have completed an inpatient or partial hospitalization program and need continued support to stay sober.
An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a treatment program that provides more intensive care than what is typically offered in an outpatient setting.
IOP allows people to receive treatment while still living at home and attending school or work. IOP programs typically offer group therapy, individual therapy, medication management, and case management.
IOP usually involves attending group sessions three or four times a day for 6-8 hours. During these groups, individuals can expect to receive individualized treatment and participate in activities designed to help them overcome their substance use disorder.
IOP can also involve medication management and referrals to other treatments, such as 12-step programs.
IOP can be effective for those who cannot commit to an inpatient or residential treatment but still need more intensive care than what is offered in outpatient programs.
After IOP, many clients move over to a standard OP. This means they are still participating in an outpatient but less intensive outpatient program. For example, they may go from participating in treatment for five days a week, to only coming in 3 days a week and for shorter intervals.
Some outpatient programs are done in the evening so patients can attend work, school, or care for their families.
Outpatient rehab is a type of drug and alcohol treatment that allows people to live at home while they receive therapy and counseling. It is usually less expensive than inpatient rehab and can be just as effective.
During outpatient rehab, people usually meet with a therapist or counselor several times a week. They may also attend group meetings and participate in other activities to help them recover from addiction.
Outpatient rehab can be a good option for people with a strong support system at home and who are motivated to stay sober.
It can also be a good choice for people who have already been through inpatient rehab and need additional support to maintain sobriety.
If you’re asking yourself, what kind of rehab do I need? That’s a fair question. We want to make one thing clear.
A person struggling with addiction may have their mind set on one type of rehab, but it’s important to understand that sometimes, what’s wanted isn’t always needed.
The level of care you need depends on so many factors. For example, if you’ve been struggling with addiction for 20 years and expect to get into a standard outpatient program that meets thrice weekly, that will not be optimal.
And the reverse is true; sometimes, you need a lower level of care because of different factors.
So when discussing your options with a treatment center, make sure that you keep an open mind.
