Medical Detox

During medical detox, as the drugs or alcohol leave your system,  healthcare providers will help you manage any withdrawal symptoms that show up. They do this with prescription medication to ease the symptoms, and IV treatment to ensure you stay hydrated.

Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient treatment (also called residential treatment) is typically for those with severe addictions and those without a strong support system. 

It involves living at the rehab center and receiving 24/7 care. It can include behavioral therapy, family therapy, group therapy, case management, dual-diagnosis treatment, and addiction education.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment is similar to inpatient care, but instead of living at the rehab center, you go to a facility each day. After your treatment session is over, you can go home at night. 

Outpatient care is often recommended for those with mild to moderate substance use disorders and for those with stronger support systems.There are three types of outpatient treatment: partial hospitalization programs (PHPs), intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), and standard outpatient programs. 

Medication-Assisted Treatment

With medication-assisted treatment (MAT), medical professionals will prescribe medication that’s approved to treat cravings and withdrawal symptoms that come with alcohol and opioid/opiate use disorder. 

On top of the medication, you also participate in behavioral therapy as well.
