Facing addiction isn’t easy and deciding on the type of program to enter can be even harder. Whether you’re suffering from addiction or your loved one is suffering, it’s important to look at the differences between inpatient and outpatient programs.
If you’re looking at what type of program is best for you, we can help. Here’s what you need to know about the benefits of entering each program.
Outpatient programs give you the support you need to change your lifestyle. You’ll benefit from access to therapy, group sessions, and medication if you need it. The biggest benefit to being part of an outpatient program is that you can continue your life as normal.
Therefore, if you have a job, family, or other responsibilities you want to continue with while you’re in recovery, an outpatient program is an excellent choice. You may not be able to just leave your home and enter an inpatient program.
However, you should be aware that recovering from addiction and trying to lead a normal life can be a very difficult thing to do. Outpatient programs are ideal for anyone who has already been through an inpatient program but still requires help to recover fully.
Even after intensive inpatient programs, outpatient programs can still offer valuable and essential support to anyone in recovery.
Addiction treatment in an inpatient program allows the patient to focus entirely on recovery. If recovery is too difficult while in the outside world, inpatient programs offer the best solution. As a patient, you will spend all of your time at the recovery center with access to constant support.
For instance, detoxing from drugs and alcohol can come with withdrawal symptoms. These could include headaches, nausea, sickness, dizziness, tremors, and more. You’ll have access to medication that can help you through these symptoms as your body regulates.
Entering an inpatient program means you won’t have to worry about worldly triggers like stress, toxic relationships, and social situations. There are also alternatives to inpatient programs, like intensive outpatient programs or partial hospitalization that offer the same benefits.
