Outpatient substance abuse treatment consists of therapy sessions scheduled around your work or school life. You'll be responsible for:
- Attending your therapy sessions faithfully
- Avoiding drugs and alcohol
- Enlisting the support of friends and family
- Seeking medical care for your physical addiction, if you need it
Residential treatment, on the other hand, takes much of the management work out of the initial phases of recovery, because it places you in a drug- and alcohol-free environment where everyone around you is helping you work toward your recovery. Many people in residential facilities benefit from being away from home, since time in a new place can help move you out of your old patterns. You'll have a safe, stable living arrangement and medical support for any physical withdrawal from substances, as well as psychiatric care. In inpatient care, your psychotherapy treatment will generally be more intensive each day than it would be in outpatient treatment.
Mental Illness and Addiction
Mental illness and substance abuse disorders often go hand in hand. Nearly 40 percent of people who are alcoholics, and more than half of those who abuse drugs, also suffer from another mental disorder. On the other side of the coin, 30 percent of people who have a mental illness also abuse substances. Psychiatric disorders can set in before or after substance abuse gets out of hand but once they do, they make substance abuse treatment more complicated.
If you suffer from both an addiction and mental health disorder, it's important to get treatment in a dual diagnosis facility.
