Treatment for Substance Abuse:


  • Medical detox: Detox services are offered in a variety of settings, including hospitals, inpatient treatment centers, outpatient programs, clinics, and more.
  • Inpatient rehabilitation: This level of rehabilitation, or “rehab,” often follows a period of intensive detox and involves 24-hour medical supervision at a hospital or other treatment facility.
  • Residential treatment: Clients who can benefit from the stability and security of 24-hour monitoring are good candidates for residential treatment. Residential treatment facilities offer therapies in an attractive setting with comfortable, homelike surroundings and a supportive atmosphere.
  • Partial hospitalization: Partial hospitalization services combine the structure and supervision of an inpatient program with more independence, which offer recovery services on an outpatient basis in a hospital or inpatient treatment facility.
  • Intensive outpatient programs: Outpatient treatment, in which the client participates in recovery activities during the day while returning to a private home or transitional housing program.
  • Transitional living/sober housing programs: After rehab, clients may feel more secure in their sobriety if they can live in an atmosphere that supports abstinence from drugs or alcohol. Transitional living homes provide these advantages while giving the client the opportunity to reintegrate into the community.
  • Family treatment programs: An important aspect for families to attend an independent family program or a family program that their loved one is being treated for addictions or mental health.
