Addiction treatment comes in many different forms for all different kinds of addictive substances. The specific addiction treatment an individual receives will vary depending on where they receive treatment, the severity of their addiction, if there is any accompanying mental health issues, as well as the specific drug being used. Types of addiction treatment can range from detox, inpatient or residential, and outpatient. Most patients receive a mixture of these methods and will continue with some form of aftercare.
Types of Addiction Treatment
Treating addiction and substance abuse can require an array of methods and techniques. These techniques will vary in approach, length of stay, and a combination of group, private and/or family therapy. Some successful recovery plans will begin with inpatient detox to medically manage withdrawals. Once detox is complete a patient may move to inpatient treatment or PHP. These stays can last between 30 and 90 days. When inpatient addiction treatment is completed a transitional form of rehab is typically prescribed in the form of intensive outpatient or sober living.
