Choosing Between an Outpatient and Inpatient Rehab

Inpatient Drug Treatment in Biddeford: This is a location that can monitor health and wellbeing while providing a safe environment for a person to recover in. It is seen as the most important and generally the most successful treatment option.

Outpatient Drug Treatment in Biddeford: In intensive outpatient treatment, a person sleeps at home but spends most of every day at a treatment center receiving care. In traditional outpatient care, a person receives less care less frequently. This form is not often used for those with a moderate or worse level of addiction.

How Long Can Treatment at a Rehab Last?

Initial treatment depends on a person’s need for detox and overall health. Most care is provided for 90 days as a first step. However, ongoing treatment for up to six months is common. This can include both inpatient and outpatient treatment.

It is only wise to leave treatment when a doctor states it is safe to do so. Doing so early can mean a person is more likely to just start using again, undoing the work they have accomplished.

What to Expect at Rehab

Initial treatment in a rehab center starts with detox, if needed, based on a full evaluation. Then, a person will receive an individualized treatment plan to address their needs. This can include mental health treatment through a dual diagnosis program for those with anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, or other needs.

Most people require:

  • Medication assistance for withdrawal, pain, and stabilization
  • Therapy including individual and group therapy
  • Evidence-based treatment along with holistic care

When Would You Need to Go to Detox?

After an initial assessment, a doctor and therapist will determine if detox is necessary. It may be recommended for many people who:

  • Have a long-term history of drug use
  • Are unable to stop using on their own
  • Have used intense, high-risk drugs
  • Have complex health concerns
  • Have complex mental health needs

How Long is Detox?

Once in detox, doctors will assess a person’s health on a daily basis to determine if they are okay to move on to inpatient treatment. This can happen in 3 days or 21 days, or somewhere in between. Some people need more time to recover. This is very common in situations where:

  • There is a slow metabolism
  • There are health complications to withdrawal
  • The length of time using is extensive
  • The drug used is high risk
