Rundown Of Types Of Drug Treatment Programs

sign.news3If you or a loved one are addicted to drugs, you should know that there are various treatment options available. It depends on the depth of the addiction, and unfortunately, what you can afford.

According to the web, these are the options:

Residential Treatment

This is for the most severely addicted person. The addict lives at the treatment facility and receives constant monitoring and treatment. The length of stay is usually 30-to-90 days.

Partial Hospitalization

This is geared mostly toward preventing relapse. This is an outpatient program, but it requires people to visit the rehab facility three-to-five days per week for four-to-six hours per day.

Intensive Outpatient Program

This is similar to partial hospitalization, but it is for people who work or go to school and can’t spend most of their days at a rehab clinic. These people have to visit three times per week for two-to-four hours per day.


Counseling is usually used as a support tool in conjunction with another treatment program. This helps the addict figure out why they use drugs and help them make better decisions in the future.

Sober living

A sober living facility is best for addicts who are likely to relapse if they go home too soon. These places are obviously drug-free, and offer support for recovery.
