How to Choose Between Inpatient and Outpatient Drug Rehab
Drug addiction rehab can take place at a residential treatment facility or through an outpatient program.
Inpatient rehab is essential for those who have a long history of drug abuse and addiction, a co-occurring mental illness or secondary addiction, or who aren’t particularly committed to recovery. Inpatient programs allow patients time away from stress and triggers at home and provide around-the-clock supervision and care. They typically offer a number of alternative therapies like yoga or acupuncture to help patients through the detox process.
Outpatient rehab can be successful for those who have a strong commitment to recovery and a solid support system in place at home. Outpatient treatment enables the patient to continue meeting obligations at home, work, and school.
