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 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.
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.
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 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 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.
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.
If you have been arrested for committing a drug-related offense, you might be able to choose rehabilitation and treatment instead of going to jail. There are a couple of ways you can choose rehab over jail. These options include drug courts and court-ordered drug rehab.
Court-ordered drug rehabilitation is usually for people who have several DUIs, a proven track record of drug related crimes, and multiple offenders. If you fall into this category, the judge will give you the choice of going to jail or joining a rehab program.
On the other hand, there are special courts that handle non-violent, drug-related crimes called drug courts. Today, the United States has over 2400 of these drug courts. These drug courts will determine if you are qualified through mandatory drug/alcohol testing and supervision before assigning you treatment-based incarceration instead of getting jailed.
Addiction to intoxicating substances is considered a recurring and relapsing disease. To this end, it may be very challenging for you to maintain your sobriety after treatment. There is always a possibility that you could relapse even after undergoing 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:
After checking out of a treatment program - especially if you were undergoing inpatient or residential addiction treatment - it might be a good idea to make sure that you have a carefully thought-out 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, checking out of rehabilitation could increase your risk of relapsing because you won't be under the care of a medical and treatment team.
Some of the things that you can do after finishing rehabilitation to ensure that you sustain your addiction recovery include:
