Finding Help in White Plains

White Plains, New York Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers

When you are thinking about drug and/or alcohol addiction treatment, you need to understand that depending on your situation – your financial circumstances, your history of addiction, your likeliness to relapse, etc. – you may need a more or less intensive treatment program. It is wise to be informed of the three treatment programs that are offered in rehab facilities.

  • Connector.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    An inpatient treatment program is also called a residential treatment program because patients stay on campus in the facility 24 hours a day. Most inpatient treatment programs last 30, 60 or 90 days although they can be shorter or longer. In an inpatient treatment program, counselors, healthcare professionals and addiction specialists will work with you to help you conquer your drug and/or alcohol addiction.

  • Connector.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    There is a little more flexibility with a partial hospitalization program (PHP) as patients are allowed to go home at night. Often, PHP patients have already completed a residential program and are progressing to a less intensive program before transitioning back to normal life.

  • Connector.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    The outpatient treatment program offers the most flexibility, and patients in outpatient treatment have often completed residential treatment and/or a partial hospitalization program. Outpatient patients still participate in the same rehabilitation curriculum as PHP and inpatient patients.

Understanding the pros and cons of each facility and each treatment program is essential to choosing the right treatment for you. Many people consider national treatment centers like The Recovery Village as we are dedicated to providing you with the most effective treatment for your substance use disorder.

Detox Centers

Going through a detoxification process can be scary. Many people choose to go to a detox center so that they will be provided with medical care throughout the process. This way, they can get through painful and uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms with medications. Detox centers, however, are not full-service facilities. Patients who attend detox centers do not have access to treatment programs.

Detoxification is important, but it is only the beginning of treatment for substance use disorder. You also will need to participate in the therapy, courses and healing activities involved in a treatment program. One of the advantages of a facility like The Recovery Village is that patients are able to detox and then immediately go into a residential treatment program.
