Choosing Between an Outpatient and Inpatient Rehab

Inpatient rehab can be a good choice if you feel you need extra structure and support while getting clean and sober. Staff is available to you 24 hours a day to help with any physical or emotional challenges that arise.

Outpatient treatment may be your best option if you can’t get time off work or have family responsibilities that prevent you from checking into rehab. You will attend a program every night for at least several weeks.

How Long Can Treatment at a Rehab Last?

A long-term residential treatment program can last six to 12 months. The National Institute on Drug Abuse calls this the most effective treatment model. This is 24-hour care in a non-hospital, community setting. It offers a range of services including vocational rehabilitation.

Short-term residential treatment typically lasts three to six weeks. Many pattern themselves after the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. However, the cocaine epidemic of 30 years ago demonstrated this type of program may not be long enough.

What to Expect at Rehab

The best rehab programs offer customized programs based on your addiction history and other factors. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, all effective programs should include the following:

  • Group and individual therapy: Group therapy provides accountability and support. Individual therapy helps people uncover and understand problem behaviors that led to drug use.
  • Medication: Intense drug and alcohol cravings can interfere with your recovery. Having medication available gets you through the difficult times to allow you to focus.

When Would You Need to Go to Detox? 

Detox can be appropriate if you physically can’t stop using or drinking by yourself. If your initial assessment shows addiction, your care team will most likely require you to go to detox before starting a treatment program.

Although detox can be physically and emotionally challenging, it’s an important first step in recovery. You will have continuous medical supervision during the process. This usually takes place in a separate facility since treatment centers don’t handle detox.

How Long is Detox? 

This depends on you. If you used hard drugs for a long time, it would require more time to detox. Your general health outside your drug or alcohol addiction also matters. People with slower metabolisms take longer to detox than those with faster metabolisms. The type of drug you abused also matters since some take longer to leave your body. You should expect to spend three days to three weeks in detox.
