Many drug rehab facilities offer clients both residential and outpatient services, while some exclusively offer one or the other. Residential therapy provides a supportive, nurturing environment that allows the drug abuser to escape the often toxic environment that allowed easy access to drugs. Typically, a client will begin his or her recovery in a residential setting which allows for detoxification and intensive one-on-one and group therapy sessions, along with direct care by the facility’s staff of physicians, therapists, nurses and guidance counselors. Residential therapy can last anywhere from a few weeks to a month, or more depending on the given situation. Outpatient drug treatment gives the individual an opportunity to use the tools he or she acquires during in-house therapy to learn how to interact successfully in a real world environment. Outpatient drug treatment programs offer the client individualized treatment plans, along with regular assessment and monitoring. Studies indicate that outpatient drug treatment works especially well with those who suffer from prescription drug abuse.
Inpatient drug treatment, also known as residential drug treatment, is the most effective drug rehab program available. Following detoxification, the inpatient drug treatment facility's staff members will assign a team of physicians, therapists and licensed counselors (often recovering addicts) to design a treatment plan to help the addict adjust fully to life without drugs. Treatment options can include group and one-on-one counseling, 12-step programs and behavior modification therapy designed to help the client re-enter society.
Although outpatient drug treatment hasn't replaced residential treatment, outpatient programs are increasingly used as an effective, cost-effective way to treat drug abuse. While in some cases, residential inpatient treatment is necessary, an intensive outpatient drug treatment program can duplicate many of the elements seen in the residential setting. Common features of outpatient drug treatment programs include group and one-on-one counseling, customized treatment plans, drug screens, case management by licensed social workers, 12-Step recovery programs and relapse prevention education. Outpatient drug treatment programs are generally much less expensive than residential inpatient treatment programs.
