Substance use disorders affect roughly 20.2 million adults in the U.S. or 8.4% of the population. Alcohol use disorder affects 16.3 million people, while drug use disorders affect 6.2 million. Sadly, only 2.5 million of these individuals receive professional substance abuse treatment at drug rehab.
Substance abuse treatment uses a range of different therapies that help people safely withdraw from drugs and alcohol, and that address various factors contributing to addiction. Dana Point Rehab Campuses in Orange County uses customized treatment programs and therapies so that each and every patient can experience a safe, successful recovery from substance abuse.
Here’s a closer look at different substance abuse treatments, and at what you can do to get help for addiction today.
What is Medical Detox?
Withdrawing from drugs and alcohol can be a risky, dangerous, and deadly process without medical assistance. Medical detox helps people safely withdraw these substances while under 24-hour medical supervision — reducing the risk of complications like seizure, psychosis, and death. In some instances, medical detox may involve the use of medications that relieve and reduce withdrawal symptoms so patients can recover more comfortably from drug and alcohol dependence.
What is Inpatient Residential Drug Rehab?
Some people have a difficult time recovering from addiction due to living in unsafe, unstable home environments where drugs and alcohol are readily available. Inpatient residential drug rehab offers safe, peaceful, and structured environments where these individuals can successfully recover from addiction without distractions, negative influences, or access to substances. Inpatient residential programs offer 24-hour support and medical care, and use a variety of therapies to help people repair and rebuild their lives, and develop new daily routines without drugs and alcohol.
What is a Partial Hospitalization Program?
Partial hospitalization, or PHP offers treatment 5 days per week for 6 hours per day and is similar to intensive inpatient drug rehab without 24-hour medical care. Therapies that may be included in PHP are individual and group counseling, medication management, cognitive behavioral therapy, rational emotive behavioral therapy, family therapy, and dual diagnosis therapy. Patients who choose PHP for substance abuse treatment generally have more independence and do not require constant medical supervision.
What is an Intensive Outpatient Program?
Intensive outpatient programs, or IOPs offer treatment 3 days per week for 3 hours per day over the course of 12 weeks. Many therapies and services in IOPs take place in group settings and address specific challenges patients may face while in recovery — such as relapse triggers, stress, and symptoms of mental health disorders. IOPs are ideal for those in recovery who have busy lifestyles but need high-level support as they continue recovering from addiction.
What is Outpatient Drug Rehab?
Outpatient drug rehab is similar to an IOP, but meets less frequently so patients can also maintain and focus on their careers, education, and family lives. Medication management, weekly support group meetings, and individual and group counseling sessions are all available in an outpatient setting to give patients the support they need as they go about living their normal daily lives without drugs and alcohol. Many patients transition to outpatient rehab after completing inpatient programs, PHPs, or IOPs so they can benefit from continued care.
