    Residential Treatment Programs

    A residential treatment program, also referred to as inpatient drug rehab consists of patients staying within a treatment facility where they have constant access to medical professional as well as counselors. These types of treatment programs are generally one month or longer and are ideal for those who have been using for a long time or are suffering from a severe addiction. A patient usually enters a residential program once he or she has completed detox. There are options in California and nationwide for those looking for a residential program.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    In a partial hospitalization program (PHP), individuals reside at home or another secure place, away from the treatment center, while coming to the facility for multiple hours each day for treatment. Sometimes, this type of program serves as a next step after a residential program. PHP is also an option for those who don’t require medical detox or an inpatient setting to begin treatment due to a less severe addiction or a shorter span of time using.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    Outpatient treatment is for those who have gone through the higher levels of treatment successfully, or individuals with a less severe substance problem. Outpatient drug rehab may consist of group counseling, one-on-one therapy and other recovery education and treatment options. When attending an outpatient program, the individual may live at home, if the environment is safe and secure, or in housing provided by the treatment facility, such as a halfway house.

Before you choose a program, it’s vital that you consider all factors, such as the length of your substance use, which substances you’ve been using, whether you require detox, and how intense you feel your treatment program should be. A treatment center has a staff of knowledgeable professionals who have the experience and expertise necessary to help you find the help you need.

Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

Many people suffering from drug or alcohol misuse issues need to attend detox prior to starting a full treatment program. Drug detox centers offer medically assisted detox in which the patient receives monitoring and sometimes medication to help detox from the substance of use. During detox, a patient usually stays in a facility or the detox wing of a treatment center until the substance of use is out of the system.
