Residential Treatment After Detox
Many of our clients choose to enter into a residential treatment center once they have been stabilized in our detox program. Residential treatment typically lasts for between 30 days and three months depending on your unique clinical needs. In residential treatment you undergo intensive individual, group and family therapy, develop relapse prevention techniques and healthy coping mechanisms, and work through any underlying issues which might have contributed to the development of addiction. Residential treatment almost always comes recommended, seeing as it provides clients with the structure and support they need to maintain abstinence as they heal on a physical, mental and emotional basis. However, residential rehab isn’t right for everyone.
Outpatient Treatment After Detox
In some cases a client will transition from medical detox into outpatient treatment. For most people, residential treatment or partial hospitalization is the best option. Clients who are engaged in a partial hospitalization treatment program receive between five and seven days of treatment a week, though they return home once the day concludes. However, intensive outpatient or outpatient treatment is certainly better than no treatment at all. You might opt for IOP or OP after detox if:
- You are the sole caretaker of one or more dependents, or you have other family-related obligations you cannot step away from for weeks at a time.
- You have a job or career you cannot step away from for a prolonged period of time.
- You are currently enrolled in school and you cannot easily take a leave of absence to attend residential treatment.
- You are uninsured and you cannot afford to cover the cost of residential treatment or PHP out-of-pocket.
- You were sober for a long period of time and recently experienced a brief return to substance use.
- You are suffering from a mild substance use disorder and no underlying issues.
