Each person is unique, and each patient’s recovery process should be, too. At our clinic, we make every effort to design an individualized treatment program that fits the needs and schedule of each patient. While each treatment plan is different, there are some general guidelines and suggestions about intake and treatment on this page. You can use the Rehab’s Guide to find the most suitable rehab facility near you.
In-patient or Outpatient
One of your first choices as a patient is whether you wish to stay onsite as an in-patient or receive outpatient treatment. Outpatients receive the same quality of treatment as in-patients; however, their access to therapeutic activities and meals is limited. Living at home might be the best option for addicts who can maintain a job and family while getting treatment. Those with more severe addiction who require detox and are likely to be triggered by their home environment or outside influences are recommended to select an in-patient stay.
At your admissions appointment, you will meet with one of our doctors and a counselor to discuss your symptoms, review your options, and determine the best course of treatment for you. They will ask you several questions about your symptoms and drug use habits. You will not have any legal repercussions for your answers, and it is in your best interest to answer as honestly and thoroughly as possible so your doctor can make the best-informed recommendation for you. Patients often progress to outpatient status upon completing an in-patient program for further treatment and adjust to sobriety in their daily lives.
How Long is Treatment?
The length of your treatment, whether in-patient or outpatient, will depend on your personal needs. Our doctors and counselors will make a recommendation based on your intake interview and symptoms, but ultimately the duration and type of program are your decision. In-patient stays can last a matter of days to even a year or longer. The average in-patient stay is between 30 and 90 days.
What Does Treatment Look Like?
Again, every treatment is different, but usually, the first phase of treatment is detox. This is where the substances work their way out of your system. It is highly recommended to detox as an in-patient because our trained professionals can help meet your comfort needs at all times to help you detox as easily and safely as possible. If determined helpful, our doctors can prescribe medication to help you wean off drugs more comfortably. Once you have finished detox (length will vary but usually takes several days), therapy can begin. We use a mix of group and individual sessions to equip you with the tools to handle life and emotions without drugs. The center also holds a variety of therapeutic activities designed to soothe the mind and focus on a productive practice.
