    Residential Treatment Programs

    In a residential treatment program, individuals live at the drug rehab center.

These programs are best suited for patients with long term or more severe substance use issues.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    In partial hospitalization programs, which are also referred to as PHP, patients live at home or in another secure place while attending in-house treatment for a number of hours every day. This type of treatment generally requires the individual to be at the drug rehab facility for five to eight hours each day. This time consists of recovery education, counseling and group therapy. A PHP can be used as a next step for those who have completed inpatient or residential treatment, but it is also a potential option for those looking for less intensive treatment.

    Outpatient programs are generally entered as a continuing step in the recovery process of someone who has successfully completed residential and partial hospitalization treatment or as an option for someone needing less intense treatment.

During outpatient treatment, patients sometimes live at home, in a halfway house or in similar recovery housing. Various programs are available for outpatient drug rehab in Sacramento, CA, as well as being nearby cities throughout California.

With the variety of treatment program options, making a decision may seem daunting, but there are specialists who can walk you through the process.
