Choosing Between an Outpatient and Inpatient Rehab

Unsure which kind of drug abuse treatment you need? Outpatient and inpatient is the biggest difference you’ll encounter.

  • Outpatient is a good choice if you need to handle responsibilities like work or childcare. It lets you attend treatment while living at home.
  • Inpatient is the best choice for most clients. It gives you a 100% treatment-focused environment so you can get better faster.

Your treatment team will help you decide on the best kind of drug abuse rehab for you.

How Long Can Treatment at a Rehab Last?

Your treatment length depends on:

  • What rehab program you choose
  • What drugs you’re recovering from
  • Your previous drug use habits
  • Your health and metabolism

Your treatment team will help you choose the best drug abuse treatment length. It’s very important to stay in treatment long enough.

You should commit to at least 90 days of treatment. Research says that shorter treatment lengths are more likely to end in relapse. If you’re recovering from opioid abuse, then your ideal treatment length is even longer (12 months).

What to Expect at Rehab

Rehab is different for everyone but there are some treatments that we know are effective.

They include:

  • Daily access to care: Having access to a care team every day is important. It gives you an opportunity to ask questions and stay informed.
  • Medication: Suboxone is a common drug used to treat some kinds of drug cravings.
  • Therapy: Types of talk therapy used in drug rehab include cognitive-behavioral and dialectical behavior therapy. They help you learn new ways to manage your drug cravings.

When Would You Need to Go to Detox?

You should go to detox if:

  • You’re recovering from alcohol or benzos
  • You’re addicted to any drug
  • You have signs of withdrawal or cravings
  • Your doctor recommends detox

If you’re at risk for withdrawal, then you need to go to detox. Rehab centers aren’t the right place to go through withdrawal. A detox facility keeps you comfortable during this vulnerable time.

Skipping detox can lead to relapse. It’s important to be honest with your care team about your history so they can help you detox appropriately.

How Long is Detox?

Detox isn’t the same for any two people. It’s very individual and depends on:

  • Your drug use habits
  • Your health
  • Your metabolism

Drug detox centers typically offer programs that range from three days to 21 days or longer. Alcohol programs are often shorter and stimulant programs are often longer.

Your care team will help you choose the right program length based on your history. It’s very important to stay in detox for the full program length.
