Rehab facilities are available in all shapes, sizes and structures to provide care, counseling and treatment for those suffering from addiction to drugs or alcohol, mental illness or eating disorders. These facilities provide various types of treatment to help patients heal in a home, hospital or outpatient setting. Depending on the type of treatment that a patient needs, the length of time they require treatment and care and various other factors, one of the following rehab facilities may be most suitable:
For those suffering from alcohol addiction, alcohol rehab facilities provide the safest and most effective treatment. There are a few common types of alcohol rehab including inpatient and outpatient facilities which each cater to different levels of addiction and treatment. Inpatient alcohol rehab facilities provide around-the-clock medical monitoring for patients suffering from severe alcohol addiction and who are at risk of dangerous withdrawal symptoms. Outpatient alcohol rehab facilities offer slightly less monitoring but still provide many of the same services as inpatient facilities including counseling, support, therapy and education.
Drug rehab is the option that those addicted to drugs will seek to get the help and support necessary for recovery. Drug rehab facilities provide inpatient, outpatient and residential care for patients suffering from a range of drug addictions including methamphetamine addiction, crack cocaine addiction, heroin addiction or addiction to prescription medications. Depending on the level of the drug abuse as well as factors such as the length of time an individual used drugs, the type of drug that was used and whether or not there are any co-occurring disorders a patient may require treatment that lasts 30, 60 or 90 days and in severe cases, even longer.
For the most difficult to treat addictions or mental health conditions inpatient rehab is sometimes necessary. Inpatient rehab facilities provide a safe environment that is set in a hospital like setting where patients can receive medication, counseling and various other treatments to heal and recover. Inpatient rehab is more structured and heavily monitored than outpatient rehab and is most suited for patients who have moderate to severe addiction or mental health conditions.
