Choosing Between an Outpatient and Inpatient Rehab
Inpatient Rehab: This type of care provides 24-hour support to you. You’ll benefit from it if you are dealing with complex health factors, mental health needs, or a non-supportive at-home environment.
Outpatient Rehab: Most people don’t start with outpatient care but progress to it after completing inpatient care. Still, for some, it allows you to live at home and come into a Portland treatment center daily (or less frequently) for care and treatment.
How Long Can Treatment at a Rehab Last?
You’ll remain in drug treatment as long as it takes for you to gain mental and physical stability and clarity. For most people, this takes at least 90 days. However, some people may benefit from treatment that lasts as long as six months.
There’s no benefit to rushing through treatment. Doing so could mean you’re more at risk for relapsing later. Keep in mind that drug treatment in Portland is very flexible to help you meet your needs.
What to Expect at Rehab
During rehab, you’ll spend time working one-on-one with a therapist and a doctor. The goal is to provide you with customized treatment to address your unique needs. To do this, you may get help such as:
- Medications to minimize withdrawal symptoms
- Talk therapy in individual and group sessions
- Holistic treatment including fitness and art programs
- Group therapy with peers
- Mental health treatment as needed
The best drug treatment centers personalize care based on mental and physical needs.
When Would You Need to Go to Detox?
You may benefit from drug detox if:
- You’re unable to stop using drugs
- You have used drugs for a long time
- You have intense cravings
- You have mental health needs, too
- You are at-risk of complications from detox
Your therapist may recommend detox if you’ve been using for a long time or if you are still using drugs at this time. It’s always meant to be a first step into the more comprehensive care you’ll receive.
How Long is Detox?
Detox isn’t a process that can be rushed. It’s meant to give your body time to process and remove the chemicals and toxins from drugs. For most people, this takes about a week. It can last between 3 and 21 days, depending on how fast your metabolism works.
Some drugs take longer to process by the body. In other cases, liver or other organ failure can slow down the process. That’s why your doctor will not rush detox.
