The type of treatment center you choose depends on your addiction and your preferences. When you are considering addiction treatment, it is important to look at all types of rehab centers and decide the one that is best for you.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Inpatient addiction treatment is one of the most common types of treatment. It is the type most used for representation of drug addiction treatment in the media and on television. In inpatient treatment you stay at the treatment facility and receive treatment until you can handle the outside world without using drugs again.

Outpatient Treatment Centers

Outpatient addiction treatment is the treatment; you attend treatment sessions usually daily or weekly. Although most people do well in inpatient treatment, they sometimes have other obligations such as work or school. Outpatient treatment lets them do these things uninterrupted while they receive treatment.

Gender Based Treatment Centers

These treatment centers help people of a specific gender or orientation. There are LBGT centers, women’s centers, and men’s centers. Each type of treatment center is orientation specific and only allows people of that orientation to attend.
