    Drug Rehabilitation

    Getting sober on your own is not only dangerous during the initial detox, it is also more likely to result in a relapse later on.

    Alcoholism Treatment

    Alcoholism is a chronic disease that can be treated with the help of medicine, psychotherapy, lifestyle changes, or a combination of these. Alcohol rehabilitation provides the addicted individual the chance to recover from the illness and resume his responsibilities while maintaining sobriety. Treatment can be done either in-house or in a residential setting. It can last from 30 to 90 days or even longer, if necessary. Alcohol rehabilitation is the treatment and management of all aspects of a patient’s addiction to alcohol.

    • People who have a history of severe withdrawal.
    • People who have attempted to overcome addiction on their own without success.

    Charleston, SC Outpatient Program

    Outpatient treatment programs provide drug and alcohol addiction treatment through individual sessions with a counselor, group therapy, 12-step meetings, and other activities to help individuals gain sober living skills. Most programs are designed for those individuals who have completed a medically supervised detoxification program and provide opportunities for clients to begin the process of early recovery.

    Outpatient programs also offer a level of medical support as needed and psychological backing through therapy. Clients are encouraged to live at home, though there may be some flexibility regarding this requirement based on the circumstances and needs of each patient.

    Outpatient treatment is perhaps the most common type of dual diagnosis program available. It does not pose a significant financial burden on patients. However, it is essential to note that outpatient treatment does not provide the support and supervision given in residential programs. Some addicts may need this level of support to maintain their sobriety.
