Addiction to drugs and alcohol is a severe but treatable issue. Support from family and friends along with proper treatment can help you overcome your addiction for a healthy and sober life. While you may think of inpatient treatment when considering rehabilitation options, outpatient treatment from facilities such as Diamond House Detox is another effective treatment option.
Outpatient treatment is a therapy-based treatment option for drug and alcohol abuse. Unlike inpatient services, the client can live at their own home while receiving treatment and attend therapy sessions on a personalized schedule.
The main difference between inpatient and outpatient treatment is the goal of each treatment type. Inpatient treatment can require a client to remain in a rehabilitation center for one to three months for therapeutic support. Inpatient rehab provides a stable environment where clients can put their time and energy into recovery without negative outside influences.
Outpatient therapy allows people to live at home and continue their normal activities outside of treatment. Clients who have recently completed inpatient treatment may also choose to partake in outpatient treatment services to continue receiving the support they need.
Your specific outpatient treatment plan will depend upon the substance you have an addiction to, the severity of your alcohol or drug addiction and your current recovery stage. There are numerous benefits to outpatient treatment such as:
