Types Of Addiction Treatment
https://www.amethystrecovery.org/drug-alcohol-rehab/residential-addiction-treatment/There are several different types of addiction treatment available which can vary by intensity, time commitment, and cost. These options can accommodate the unique recovery needs and personal circumstances of each individual. But choosing the right type of addiction treatment isn’t merely a matter of selecting the most affordable or convenient option. It should be based on finding a type of addiction treatment that adequately addresses:
- The severity of your addiction
- Can safely manage the side effects of the particular substance
- Provides enough support to promote long-term sobriety
Medical detox (also known as ‘detoxification’ or simply, ‘detox’) offers a safe and controlled environment for the withdrawal phase of addiction when drugs or alcohol are no longer present in the body. Here, addicted persons are monitored under close supervision and are strictly prohibited from substance use. It is often the first step of any type of addiction treatment or program and many addiction treatment centers require that patients have undergone detox before taking part in the recovery curriculum.
Depending on the type of addictive substance, withdrawal can be dangerous. Medical staff is trained not only to quickly manage all withdrawal symptoms but can offer relief through medications and other resources that are only available through specialized rehabilitation centers.
Also referred to as ‘residential treatment’ this is the second most intensive level of care, after medical detox. This immersive rehab treatment known is ideal for those with severe levels of addiction, as patients reside on-site at the facility and have access to 24/7 care. In addition to round-the-clock access to medical professionals and staff, patients are able to better focus on recovery by having their basic needs provided by the facility, which includes meals and entertainment in addition to accommodations and therapy.
Another added benefit is the social aspect. Addiction can be an isolating and lonely experience. Inpatient treatment can foster strong bonds with fellow patients that help to rebuild social skills and create new, positive relationships outside facility walls.
The lowest level of addiction treatment, outpatient can be suitable for individuals with moderate to mild levels of addiction. Patients do not reside at the facility and instead can remain in their own homes or often time, at an associated sober living facility. This type of treatment is less intrusive on one’s day-to-day schedule, however, does not provide the same level of environmental control as such, face more temptation to use and relapse.
Many times those in an outpatient program have graduated from a higher level of care (such as inpatient) and are slowly working their way through the lower levels of addiction treatment. Outpatient treatment can often be seen as the last bit of support before a patient is ready to truly rejoin society on their own.
