Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Inpatient addiction treatment programs usually operate within residential treatment facilities under the guidance of addiction treatment specialists and/or medical professionals.

In most cases, inpatient treatment programs involve ongoing interactions with peers, which are designed to provide support and improve outcomes.

Some of the activities often included in these programs are counseling, education and recreation. Patients may also receive medical care while in an inpatient program. While some treatment centers require all patients to follow the same schedule, others customize their programs.

Outpatient Treatment

For patients who may be able to recover from substance use without continuous supervision and support, outpatient treatment is an option.

Varying levels of outpatient care are available to meet the needs or comply with the schedules of different patients. The most intensive outpatient programs require at least nine hours of treatment each week, while less intensive programs require less time spent in treatment.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

A medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program uses a combination of medications approved by the FDA and behavioral therapy to promote recovery from opioid and alcohol use disorders.

These medications work by reducing the intensity of drug cravings, making it easier for you to stay sober. MAT programs are available from both inpatient and outpatient facilities. These programs are also available in a variety of different lengths and structures.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

Addiction is a chronic illness that doesn’t disappear, even with the best treatment available. For this reason, it is best to remain active in the addiction recovery community even after you have completed your treatment program.

Aftercare and alumni services are often available from addiction treatment programs, as well as within the community. Ask about aftercare availability before you select a program.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

Different addiction treatment programs have different lengths. Common lengths for these programs include:

  • 30 days
  • 60 days
  • 90 days
  • 6 months

Programs that are longer or shorter than the lengths listed above may also be available.

How To Pay For Treatment

Depending on the length and intensity of the program, treatment costs will vary. Most patients pay for addiction treatment with a combination of cash, credit, and health insurance payments. However, in some cases, patients aren’t able to cover their full bill with these resources.

If you are having trouble paying for treatment, you may be able to apply for public assistance or grants. Many treatment facilities also allow patients to sign up for installment plans.
