Types of Drug Rehab

Entering into drug addiction treatment can be an overwhelming endeavor. There are a wide variety of programs to choose from and different styles of treatment cater to different individuals. Before deciding on a program, it is important to understand what each type entails and what type of person they are best suited for.

Specific Types of Drug Rehab

Types of Drug RehabMost drug addiction treatment centers can be classified as either inpatient or outpatient. Each treatment structure has pros and cons, and is ideal for a certain type of patient.

Inpatient drug addiction treatment requires patients to move into the treatment facility for the duration of their treatment. Patients are removed from their families and friends and will spend time away from work. Some inpatient programs may be equipped to offer detox at their facility, while others may use another facility like a hospital. Costs are higher at inpatient facilities because treatment includes living expenses and meals. Inpatient programs are ideal for those patients who do not have a support system at home, are surrounded by negative influences or suffer from a strong physical and psychological addiction.

Outpatient drug addiction treatment programs are more flexible. Patients live away from the facility and can spend time with their families and often maintain their jobs. During the day, patients receive treatment from medical professionals and counselors, and attend the same counseling sessions one might attend in an inpatient program. Costs are lower because patients are not required to pay for living expenses or meals. Outpatient programs are ideal for those patients suffering from more mild psychological addictions, and experience little or no withdrawal symptoms when they stop using.

Styles of Drug Rehab

Within the outpatient and inpatient program structure, there are various other specialized types of treatment programs that are ideal for a specific type of patient. Teen addiction treatment programs cater specifically to that age group, and counselors are trained to address psychological issues unique to adolescents (such as body dysmorphia). Women’s-only programs provide women with a safe place to get addiction help and discuss their experiences with addiction with other women. Holistic programs teach patients to live better lives as a whole, instead of only treating their drug use problem. Luxury programs offer extravagant amenities that can make a person’s stay in rehab more comfortable if it is financially feasible. The options are endless and it is important to speak to someone about your needs to decide on a treatment program that is right for you.
