When you first enter treatment, a treatment provider will take you through an assessment to discover what levels of care should be part of your treatment plan. 

To address your individual needs, the types of treatment in your plan may include:

  • medical detox/detoxification
  • inpatient/residential treatment
  • outpatient treatment
  • medication-assisted treatment
  • dual-diagnosis treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders
  • aftercare support

Medical Drug & Alcohol Detox

Medical detox is an important first step in the recovery process. Withdrawing from drugs and alcohol can be difficult and, at times, life-threatening. If you’ve built up a dependency to drugs or alcohol, withdrawal symptoms can show up when you stop using.

In a medical detox program, you’re watched over by healthcare professionals while you withdraw. You may also receive medications to make the symptoms a bit more manageable.

Residential/Inpatient Drug Rehab

Inpatient drug rehab requires you to stay at the drug rehab center 24/7. During your stay, you have access to clinicians and therapists who specialize in treating drug and alcohol addiction.

Inpatient treatment also includes behavioral therapy, group therapy, and other mental health services. You’ll also learn coping strategies to help with relapse prevention.

Outpatient Treatment

Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs), also known as day treatment, and intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are the two major most intense forms of outpatient treatment available. They both include treatment similar to what you find in inpatient care.

The difference between the two recovery programs is that PHP usually involves more sessions per week. IOP offers fewer sessions but each one may be much longer than PHP sessions.

Opioid & Alcohol Treatment Programs

Medication-assisted treatment is one unique form of treatment in opioid and alcohol rehab. Several FDA-approved medications can be used to ease cravings and take away the euphoric feeling that comes with both substances.

Some of the medications include Suboxone, methadone, and naltrexone. This form of treatment can make the first couple of weeks of recovery a little bit easier.

Once you leave treatment, the support you receive doesn’t have to end there. Many treatment facilities offer aftercare support in the form of sober-living housing, peer support, and 12-step support groups.
