Inpatient Treatment Facilities:

It is also known as the residential treatment. The patient is kept inside the rehabilitation center for certain time duration depending on the patient’s condition. The minimum duration is 28 days but it is extended as per the patient’s requirements, up to even 90 days. The patient is periodically assessed to measure the treatment progress and tailor the duration accordingly. The patient has to stay full time in the facility, it provides an excellent accountability and the recovery success rates are significantly higher with the inpatient treatment facilities. 24 hours supervision is provided at the inpatient facilities.

Outpatient treatment facilities:

The outpatient program allows the patient to stay at his home and continue the daily office or the school routine. There are few hours allocated for the treatment for which the person has to visit the facility. Usually, there are 2 to 8 days every week. The outpatient treatment facilities though seem more convenient but they aren’t suitable for every person. They are associated with a lesser accountability and the chances of poor recovery are also high. Moreover, this program is only suitable for people having high a motivation and strong family and friends support. The outpatient program is less costly than the inpatient program.

This is the treatment program that continues after the patient has finished his rehabilitation program. The services included are the counseling therapies and the ongoing therapies. There are different formats for the aftercare programs. Most of them comprise of group sessions, relapse prevention techniques, and improvement of relationship skills.
