Inpatient

Residential Inpatient Treatment provides long-term care and recovery in a safe setting. You will stay at a Residential drug rehab for the entirety of your treatment which generally lasts around 90 days. While inpatient treatment is a longer commitment and typically more expensive form of of treatment, it is by far the best type of rehab to attend and will offer you the highest chances of getting clean and staying sober. An inpatient drug rehab has an average cost of around $40,000. Cost can vary depending on length of stay, quality of care, and location.

Outpatient

Outpatient treatment is unique because it allows you to attend therapy groups or treatment counseling during the day and then return home once completed. This can be beneficial if you have certain aspects of your life you must attend to while seeking help for alcoholism or drug addiction. While the freedom of outpatient treatment is appealing to many individuals, it also can be difficult to dedicate the focus that is required to overcome addiction. A good support group of friends or family around you that will keep you in line when not in therapy can greatly increase the success of this type of treatment. Outpatient treatment can cost around $3,000.00 on average.

Detox

First off, detox is not rehab. Many people think detox is the same as treatment, but this not true. Going to a detox is the initial step most people do before going into rehab. When coming off drugs or alcohol, most people experience withdrawal symptoms that are extremely uncomfortable or dangerous. Going to detox helps you get through these withdrawals safely, while minimizing the effects that generally occur. Detox can last anywhere from 5 days to 3 weeks depending on what substances you were using. The cost will vary depending on how long you are in detox and whether it was a medical detox or drug-free.

Free/Low Cost

Financial Concerns are one of the main reasons people do not enter an alcohol and drug rehab. Many people think there is no way they can afford effective treatment because they are unable to pay for it. However, there are rehabs that will accept medicaid or offer payment assistance to help you with treatment costs. You may also look for treatment facilities that offer a sliding scale fee that adjust the cost of rehab based on your income. While these options may not be the number one choice for many, they are still more helpful than doing nothing. Getting help is always the best choice.

Counseling

Counseling or therapy is usually part of any treatment program you attend. However, many places offer counseling or therapy outside of treatment as a way to help you with any problems that can occur in everyday life that could cause you to relapse. They are offered in multiple formats such as group or individual therapy as well as family counseling. Counseling and therapy are an excellent form of aftercare planning as well.

12-Step

12-Step meetings are support groups and can be helpful for many people as a supplement to treatment. 12-step follows the specific guidelines that were outlined and originated from Alcoholics Anonymous. For some people, this is the only type of treatment they receive and for a few, it is successful. 12-Step works much better as a continued aftercare plan once you have completed treatment.

Aftercare

Most people don't even consider what to do once they complete an alcohol and drug rehab program. Setting up proper aftercare planning and learning relapse prevention techniques is important to maintaining a healthy and drug-free lifestyle. Many treatment centers will offer some type of aftercare plan for when you leave, but there are places that specialize in aftercare and relapse prevention if you need additional assistance. Aftercare can also include transitional or halfway housing if you need a place to live after you finish drug and alcohol treatment.

Common Questions About Treatment

How Do I Avoid Relapsing?

Addiction to intoxicating substances is considered a recurring and relapsing disease. To this end, it might not be easy for you to completely stop using drugs or drinking alcohol once and for all. There is always a risk that you could relapse even after going through the most rigorous addiction treatment program.

However, there are some things that you can do to make sure that you do not relapse after attending an alcohol and drug rehabilitation and treatment program. Some of these relapse prevention tips include:

  • Have a proper and well-thought out relapse prevention plan
  • Attend counseling appointments
  • Avoiding people who continue using drugs
  • Stay away from any place where you took drugs
  • Learn to develop the accountability required to keep up with your sobriety and recovery
  • Check into sober living homes

What Do I Do When I Complete Treatment in Dahlonega, GA?

After checking out of a treatment program - especially if you were undergoing inpatient or residential addiction treatment - it would be a good idea to make sure that you have a carefully thought-out aftercare plan about how you will sustain the gains you made in treatment.

This is because the responsibility of keeping up with the major life changes that you made during rehab while also working on maintaining your ongoing sobriety might seem overwhelming. Further, leaving treatment will increase your risk of relapse as you will no longer be under the care and supervision of a medical and treatment team.

Some of the things that you can do after finishing treatment to ensure that you sustain your recovery include:

  • Address all potential and actual triggers that could increase your risk of relapse
  • Continue pursuing mental health care and treatment
  • Create a sustainable relapse prevention plan
  • Have a support system around you to ensure you do not relapse
  • Keep engaged with your ongoing recovery
  • Tackle all necessary responsibilities that will improve your new productive, sober, and healthy lifestyle

Does Outpatient Treatment Work?

If you are addicted to certain intoxicating substances - like alcohol, benzodiazepines, and opioids - you might find that outpatient rehab might not be the best treatment setting for you. This is also the case if you have developed severe addiction. In all these cases, you would typically have higher success rates enrolling in an inpatient substance abuse treatment center in Dahlonega.

However, if you have a relatively mild substance use disorder, then you could find that outpatient addiction rehabilitation would help you overcome this condition. This form of treatment might also be good if you have responsibilities at school, work, and home that take inpatient treatment out of the equation.

Outpatient rehab programs will provide you with more freedom than an inpatient rehabilitation program and could be right place to start.
