Treating substance abuse doesn’t end after drug detox. A substance use disorder is a chronic issue that requires licensed rehab programs to reduce symptoms and risk of relapse. If you or a loved one suffers from symptoms of drug abuse or addiction, residential drug treatment can help.
What Is Residential Drug Treatment?
Residential drug treatment is an inpatient rehab option to treat drug addictions, such as heroin, marijuana, and opioid addiction. Individuals benefit from 24/7 supervision and support. They participate in specialized substance abuse treatment programs and addiction therapy services.
Clients stay at the facility overnight for a recommended amount of time decided on by doctors and addiction specialists. An inpatient stay generally ranges from 30, 60, and 90 days. Although extended options are available if needed.
Inpatient vs. Outpatient Drug Rehab
Residential addiction treatment is a great level of care for individuals going through drug rehab for the first time, have severe addictions, or chronically relapse. It is also recommended for those with addiction and mental health disorders, or co-occurring disorders.
Inpatient drug rehab involves a fully structured plan of treatments and therapies to develop coping skills, uncover underlying issues, and resources for continued recovery. Medical care and licensed professionals are available at any time during the stay.
Outpatient treatment programs provide daily treatment. This is a great option for after inpatient care, mild addictions, and those with unavoidable obligations. Individuals find they are able to continue caring for their families and attend school or work.
Outpatient care is less structured than inpatient drug rehab but has a similar availability of programs and therapies. Normally 10 to 12 hours are spent in treatment a week. Clients normally find strong connections to their local sober community.
While many of the same programs and therapies are available in inpatient and outpatient rehab, there are many factors to consider when choosing between the two.
If you or a loved one is trying to decide on inpatient vs. outpatient treatment, call 866.330.9449 to schedule a consultation with an addiction specialist. Experts offer insights you may not realize based on your individual situation.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
For those entering drug rehab with a co-occurring mental health disorder, dual diagnosis treatment is vital for recovery. Substance use and mental health disorders tend to exacerbate the other’s symptoms. Treating one condition without the other will result in a fast relapse.
Common co-occurring disorders with addiction include:
- Depression disorders, such as major depressive disorder and seasonal depression
- Anxiety disorders, including social anxiety and phobias
- Bipolar disorder
- Trauma or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Eating disorders, like binge eating
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
When treatment for addiction and mental illness are needed, it is best to treat them at the same time in an inpatient rehab center. Addiction specialists and licensed therapists can monitor symptoms of both disorders and adapt custom treatment plans.
Addiction Therapy Services
A vital part of the recovery process is attending therapy sessions. These can be done in a combination of individual, group, and family therapy settings.
Therapies help those in addiction and dual diagnosis treatment find the underlying reasons behind their disorders. Coping skills, communication, and relationship building ensure a strong foundation to reduce the risk of relapse.
