These days we have a much better understanding of drug and alcohol addiction and accept that it is an illness that can be treated. There are around 14,500 addiction treatment centers around the US like CASA Recovery in San Juan Capistrano, CA offering specialist rehab and recovery support with a range of both outpatient and inpatient services. But what is the difference and what is the best option for you? Here we take a look at the benefits and advantages of both inpatient and outpatient care so that you can weigh up the pros and cons.
The Benefits of Inpatient Treatment
Inpatient treatment is when the individual stays at the facility. This completely removes them from all the places and people they associate with substance abuse and immerses them in the healing process. This is particularly advantageous for people who have long-term substance abuse issues or who also have a co-existing mental illness or dual-diagnosis patients.
Addiction is invariably a complex illness that requires an individual treatment approach delivered in a program devised specifically for the individual. Inpatient treatment allows therapists and clinicians ample opportunity to adapt programs and monitor progress for each patient in a completely sober environment to best-prepare them for returning home.
The Benefits of Outpatient Treatment
Residential rehab is not always the best option for the person concerned. Some may have high-profile or important jobs and responsibilities for the livelihood of others. Others may be in a caregiving role at home, with dependents they need to be around for. There are also people who may be seeking help at the early stages of substance abuse who don’t necessarily need 24/7 care. There are a host of different reasons people are unable to commit to a residential program and outpatient care represents the best alternative.
With outpatient treatment, patients have access to the same therapies and services available to inpatients but they have the flexibility to be able to remain at home. This enables them to continue with their daily responsibilities while they get better, supported by regular therapy sessions arranged at their convenience.
