Outpatient programs are often part of a continuum of recovery. They are recommended for people who have family support or who plan to continue working or living at home while they receive treatment.
Medication-assisted treatment refers to specialized programming that addresses alcohol or opioid addiction. A patient will be prescribed FDA-approved medications like methadone or disulfiram to reduce cravings and better manage withdrawal. During the program, these medications are combined with behavioral therapy sessions to achieve a whole-person approach.
Inpatient Addiction Treatment
Inpatient treatment lasts at least 28 days, and can extend up to six months or longer. This type of drug and alcohol recovery program can be in a clinical (hospital) or residential (home-like) environment.
Inpatient rehab programs build therapeutic communities. They integrate services for mental, physical, and emotional health. They are comprehensive treatment options for people who may need 24-hour structure, supervision, and time to heal and recover away from triggers and stress.
