Below you’ll find answers to some of the questions we get asked the most.

What is Outpatient Rehab?

Outpatient rehab is a type of substance abuse program that allows individuals to receive treatment while still maintaining their daily routines. Unlike inpatient rehab, where individuals stay at a facility for a predetermined duration, outpatient rehab allows individuals to attend treatment sessions during the day and return home in the afterhours.

What types of rehabs exist for substance abuse treatment?

There are several types of rehabs available for substance abuse treatment.

Some of the most common types include:

  1. Partial hospitalization program (PHP): PHPs are a type of rehab that typically involves more frequent and longer therapy and counseling sessions.
  2. Intensive outpatient program (IOP): IOPs are a type of rehab that typically involves more frequent and longer therapy sessions than traditional outpatient rehab.
  3. Outpatient rehab: Outpatient rehab allows individuals to receive treatment while continuing to live at home. This type of rehab may include individual or group therapy sessions, as well as medication-assisted treatment.
  4. Inpatient rehab: Inpatient rehab requires individuals to stay at a facility for a designated period of time, typically ranging from a few weeks to several months. This type of rehab may offer more concentrated  therapy and support than outpatient rehab.
  5. Sober living homes: Sober living homes provide a supportive living environment for individuals in recovery. Residents are typically required to follow certain rules and guidelines, such as attending support group meetings and refraining from drug or alcohol use.

The type of rehab that is best for you will depend on several factors, including the severity of your addiction, your personal preferences, and your lifestyle or geographical location. It’s important to work with a healthcare provider or addiction specialist to determine the best type of rehab for your needs.

How do I know if I need rehab?

It can be difficult to determine whether or not you need rehab, but there are a few signs to look out for. If your substance use is causing negative consequences in your life, such as problems with your relationships, job or legal issues, it may be time to consider rehab. Other signs may include an inability to control your substance use, a high tolerance, withdrawal symptoms, or health problems related to substance abuse. It’s important to speak with a healthcare professional to determine if rehab is the right choice for you.

What is the typical length of a substance abuse outpatient rehab program?

The length of rehab can vary depending on the individual’s needs and treatment plan. Generally, outpatient rehab programs can last anywhere from a few weeks to several months. Inpatient rehab programs typically range from 30 to 90 days, but some individuals may require longer stays. The goal of rehab is to provide individuals with the tools and skills they need to maintain long-term sobriety, so the length of treatment is tailored to each person’s unique situation.

What happens in group sessions at a substance abuse outpatient rehab center?

Group sessions are a key component of outpatient rehab and provide a supportive and safe environment to explore and address the challenges of addiction. During these sessions, individuals will work together with others in recovery to develop healthy coping mechanisms, learn relapse prevention strategies, and build supportive relationships. Group sessions can cover a range of topics including emotional regulation, mindfulness, communication skills, and more.

Each group session is typically led by a trained therapist who facilitates discussion and ensures a productive and respectful environment. Participants are encouraged to share their experiences, challenges, and successes with the group, and support and encouragement are provided by peers and the therapist. Overall, group sessions are an essential element of outpatient rehab that can help individuals develop the tools they need to achieve lasting recovery.

What is the difference between a detox center and a rehab center? Which one do I need?

The main difference between a detox center and a rehab center is the focus of their treatment. A detox center focuses on helping people safely and comfortably withdraw from drugs or alcohol, while a rehab center focuses on helping people address the underlying causes of their addiction and learn how to live a sober life. A patient typically goes through both a detox and a rehab process to ensure a successful treatment.

How long does it take to detox from alcohol?

The time it takes for the body to detox from alcohol can vary depending on several factors, including the individual’s level of alcohol consumption, overall health, metabolism, and any underlying medical conditions. Detox from alcohol primarily involves the body clearing the alcohol and its byproducts from the system.

For individuals with mild to moderate alcohol use, the acute detoxification process typically takes a few days to a week. During this time, you may experience withdrawal symptoms such as tremors, anxiety, nausea, sweating, and changes in heart rate. In more severe cases of alcohol dependence, withdrawal symptoms can be more intense and even life-threatening, a condition known as delirium tremens (DTs).

It’s important to note that detox is just the first step in recovering from alcohol dependence. After detox, many individuals require ongoing treatment, counseling, and support to address the underlying causes of their alcohol use and to maintain sobriety.

How long does it take to detox from drugs?

The amount of time it takes to detox from drugs varies depending on the substance, the amount of the substance used, and the individual’s physical and mental health. In general, detox from drugs can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks.

Here is a general timeline for detoxing from some common drugs:

  • Opioids: Opioid detox typically takes 5-7 days. However, some people may experience withdrawal symptoms for up to 2 weeks.
  • Benzodiazepines: Benzodiazepine detox typically takes 5-10 days. However, some people may experience withdrawal symptoms for up to 2 weeks.
  • Cocaine: Cocaine detox typically takes 2-3 days. However, some people may experience withdrawal symptoms for up to 1 week.
  • Marijuana: Marijuana detox typically takes 1-2 weeks. However, some people may experience withdrawal symptoms for up to 1 month.

It is important to note that these are just general timelines and the actual amount of time it takes to detox from drugs can vary significantly. If you are considering detoxing from drugs, it is important to talk to a doctor or addiction specialist to get personalized advice.

Detoxing from drugs can be a difficult and uncomfortable process, but it is an important step in the recovery process. With the right support, you can successfully detox from drugs and start on the road to recovery.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind about detoxing from drugs:

  • The severity of withdrawal symptoms can vary depending on the drug and the individual. Some people may experience mild symptoms, while others may experience severe symptoms that require medical attention.
  • It is important to detox from drugs in a safe and supportive environment. This may involve inpatient or outpatient detox.
  • Detoxing from drugs is not a cure for addiction. However, it is an important step in the recovery process.
