Detoxification is a process that methodically and safely withdraws people from addicting drugs and substances, usually under the care of a physician. Drinking alcohol or using drugs can cause physical dependence over time and abruptly stopping can result in withdrawal symptoms in people with this dependence. The detoxification process is designed to handle the immediate bodily effects of discontinued drug use and to remove toxins left in the body as a result of the chemicals found in drugs and/or alcohol.
Inpatient treatment is the preferred option for people attempting to separate from their current temptations and focus completely on sobriety with no distractions. Inpatient can last anywhere from 30 to 90 days and offer an intensive and structured treatment program. Individuals in residential centers benefit from 24-hour supervision and care as their often chaotic behaviors have become so habitual or addictive that trying to eliminate them on an outpatient basis can be difficult to impossible.
Partial Hospitalization (PHP) is designed for individuals who need a structured program but do not require 24-hour supervision. Treatment services are intended to provide support, education, medical monitoring if needed, and accountability during the hours of a day which can be identified as most troublesome or problematic for patients.
Outpatient treatment includes a selection of programs in which you visit the facility for treatment at regular intervals. Here patient’s see treatment providers one to three times per week for individual counseling, group therapy, and support. Therapy approaches can include Cognitive Behavior, Contingency Management, Motivational Interviewing, and Family counseling.
Sober living houses are facilities designed to provide a way for those coming out of rehab or involved in outpatient treatment programs to build self-esteem and accountability and put into practice routines and strategies that will enable them to live on their own, drug or alcohol free.
