Medical Detox

A treatment process which helps remove the harmful chemicals and toxins in the body which were brought on by drug abuse is known as medical detoxification. Detox allows you to begin anew, with a replenished system.

Throughout detox, healthcare workers will monitor your progress in the event withdrawal symptoms take place.

Inpatient Treatment

For those seeking a structured environment, consider residential treatment. This level of care allows you to maintain a schedule, helping to provide sobriety techniques.

Inpatient care may consist of daily schedules which involve participating in recovery programs. You may be required to attend certain support groups as well as individual and group therapy.

Inpatient treatment can also be beneficial for those suffering from a co-occurring disorder or dual diagnosis. If you have a mental health disorder and substance use disorder, you may require more extensive treatment as an inpatient.

Outpatient Treatment

If you struggle with drug or alcohol abuse, yet require a flexible schedule when it comes to treatment, consider outpatient services. With outpatient treatment, you will visit the rehab center at certain times during the week.

Those with drug addictions or serious substance use disorders may require more specialized outpatient treatment programs. Some of these include the partial hospitalization program (PHP) or the intensive outpatient program (IOP).

Outpatient drug rehab centers may provide mental illness and substance use resources including sober living options or support groups for adults and adolescents.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

More specific treatment options are available, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT). MAT can be helpful for those with an alcohol use disorder or an opioid use disorder, and involves combining approved medication with therapy and counseling.
