Alcohol and Drug Rehab Centers in Cullman, Alabama

Drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers in the Cullman area usually have 3 different levels of treatment available for substance use disorder: inpatient, partial hospitalization and outpatient.

Here is more information about the different levels:

  • Connector.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    Also called inpatient treatment or retreat-based treatment, patients enrolled in this program stay in the facility overnight. This is typically the best option for patients who need a detoxification process before they can begin treatment.

  • Connector.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    Also known as a PHP or “dayhab”, patients enrolled in this program are at the facility during the day and go home at night. Patients in this program have sometimes already completed a residential treatment program.

  • Connector.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    Patients enrolled in this program only spend 10 to 20 hours at the facility during the week. Patients in this program have sometimes already completed a PHP or residential program.

It may be smart to consider a national network of rehabilitation centers like The Recovery Village for treatment as patients that seek treatment at a national treatment center can find it to be more effective to get distance from their current environment and dedicate time to beginning their recovery journey.

Detox Centers

If you are addicted to a substance like opioids, benzodiazepines or alcohol, your withdrawal process may be more challenging that patients who are stopping other substances. This is the reason many patients choose detox centers to help with this process. Medical assistance is provided at a detox center so that any withdrawal symptoms are treated medically and not as severe.

The only downside of the detox center is that it only offers medically supervised detox. A detox center will not offer inpatient or outpatient treatment programs. These treatment programs are where the real recovery work begins. One of the advantages of a national network of rehabilitation facilities like The Recovery Village is that treatment centers like these offer both detox and treatment programs.
