    Residential Treatment Programs

    Residential (or inpatient) treatment programs are beneficial for people who require detox. Patients are provided with a place to live where they can escape their everyday environments. Residential treatment provides a safe and secure place with experienced addiction specialists and healthcare professionals on hand at all times.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    A partial hospitalization program is one step down from a residential treatment program. Also called day treatment, patients in a PHP are on campus approximately 7 to 8 hours per day. This can be beneficial to patients as they will have group therapy and individual therapy.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    Outpatient treatment programs allow patients to seek treatment with minimal interruptions to their lives. Patients live at home and spend two or three hours during the week at the facility. This is a good fit for patients who have full-time jobs or who have school. A lot of patients in an outpatient program have already completed inpatient treatment.

It may be a wise move to seek treatment at a national network of rehabilitation centers like The Recovery Village. In one of these facilities, addiction specialists are on staff to help you find the best treatment program for you.

Detox Centers

Detox is the first step someone needs to take when they are addicted to a harmful substance. Detox can be perilous and should not be tried alone. If you attempt to detox by yourself, you may be tempted to relapse when withdrawal symptoms become painful.

Detoxification from harmful substances can be difficult as the body adjusts to being without it. In a detox center, patients are given medical supervision throughout this difficult process. There are many options for detox centers in the Elmira area.

Going through detoxification is just a way to start a potentially long and challenging struggle to overcome drug and/or alcohol addiction. A facility that can take patients from detox through residential treatment to outpatient treatment and then aftercare is important for success. The Recovery Village offers many locations throughout the country that provide full service rehabilitation and the most luxurious amenities.
