The goal of the outpatient rehabilitation program is to make them stop abusing drugs or alcohol, reduce drug use or addictive behaviors, and become entirely sober. It is generally required to attend the outpatient program for 10-12 hours every week.
Patients can be administered on-the-spot medication to ease withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, increased heart rate, and even depression. Groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) can be used as a part of outpatient treatment to help maintain sobriety.
Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.
Aftercare support is a service many addicts need to ensure their success at recovery. This service usually includes one-on-one or group therapies, assistance from a sponsor and other types of help designed to make sure the patient continues living a life free from drugs.
Patients also may require medication to help them battle addiction. Some people have been able to successfully recover without additional medications, but others have found that they need help during their transition. Long-term, the patient must take the initiative to attend meetings and receive help from other addicts in recovery.
