Which Type of Rehab Center is Right for Me?

There is more than one type of rehab center, and while they all have their merits, it can help to compare them in order to find out which one is right for your needs. Make sure to ask yourself what aspects of a treatment program are most important to you before you begin, and it can even be helpful to make a list of your needs. And remember, the National Institute on Drug Abuse states, “Effective treatment attends to multiple needs of the individual, not just his or her drug abuse.”

Residential or Inpatient Rehab Centers

rehab options

If you have mental health problems or are a danger to yourself or others, you should attend inpatient rehab.

Both of these programs provide patients with 24-hour care and accommodations where they stay at the facility. However, inpatient rehab centers tend to be in hospitals or to have hospital-like accommodations with more intensified care. Inpatient centers are often best for individuals who need to be monitored around the clock and who have serious mental or physical conditions associated with their drug abuse. These individuals need access to addiction treatment but also to full hospital care, something most rehab centers do not offer.

Residential programs often provide both short-term and long-term treatment and are best for those individuals who need to be in a controlled environment but do not require hospitalization. They can be helpful for those who are struggling with comorbid disorders or do not have the type of positive home atmosphere they need to fully recover from addiction.

Outpatient Rehab Centers

Outpatient centers do not provide overnight accommodations. Patients can sometimes visit these facilities several times a week or even once every day, depending on their treatment regimen. According to the NIDA, “Such treatment costs less than residential or inpatient treatment and often is more suitable for people with jobs or extensive social supports.” However, it is important to remember that some outpatient centers offer little in the way of serious treatment and may only provide drug education, so you should find out what a specific program offers before deciding to receive treatment there.

Which Rehab Center is Best for Me?

Depending on your needs, you may require inpatient or residential treatment, especially if this is your first time attending rehab and if your addiction is severe. If you are

  • Experiencing harmful, health-related side effects of your drug abuse
  • In need of hospitalization
  • A danger to yourself or others

inpatient care is the right choice for you. However, this type of treatment isn’t necessary for all individuals and can be more expensive than residential rehab, a program that is beneficial for those who

  • Need 24-hour care in a controlled environment
  • Have a high psychological severity
  • Do not have a strong social network at home

Residential rehab is more expensive than outpatient programs are, but there are low-cost and even free centers available to those who need them. If you are not in dealing with these issues, though, and just need a treatment program that

  • Provides comprehensive care
  • Is close to home
  • Will allow you to live your life as you recover from addiction

outpatient rehab is likely for you. Still, these are only guidelines, and finding the right option for your needs can take time. If you would like help finding the best rehab program for you, call 800-481-6320Who Answers?.
