Rehabilitation, like any other journey, begins with simple steps. Though the journey leads to a healthy life, it is not quick or easy. But the reward that one gains from the transformation is worth the effort. The alcohol detox and rehabiliation treatment vary according to the addiction type, the individual and the treatment plan used in the rehabilitation process. But whatever the variation is, they share certain key steps: Intake, Detox, Rehabilitation and Ongoing recovery.

Intake is finding out the optimal treatment plan and the right treatment center for an individual. Rehabilitation treatment is offered through

  • Inpatient Services
  • Outpatient Services
  • And sometimes as a combination of both Inpatient and Outpatient Services

Whatever the choice of the services be, the intake process remains the same and is conducted by an experienced counselor at the corresponding facilities.

Inpatient Services and Treatment

In the case of inpatient treatment and services, 24/7 care is offered by admitting the patients in the treatment facility. Inpatient care is helpful in the eliminating stress by taking making the individual stay away from temptation during the detox and rehab process.

People who have a long-term addiction, medical problems, and other mental health issues are usually recommended an Inpatient treatment. Inpatient Services are offered in

  • Hospital: These are very intensive and there is access to all other medical services and supervision.
  • Residential Facility: These need not be Hospital based and will not offer 24/7 access to health care professionals. But they do have staff and other hospital-based services round the clock.

There are also luxury and executive facilities available to make the stay more comfortable.

Outpatient Services and Treatment

In Outpatient programs, patients are permitted to return to their home at night time after each day’s treatment. Outpatient treatments are recommended if there are work or family obligations. Such patients are allowed to go home to take care of these responsibilities. But this option is good only for people with mild addictions.
