Are you one of the many people in this area suffering from substance abuse or addiction? If so, a Hialeah rehab center could be the answer you’re looking for. These centers offer compassionate and knowledgeable care that can help you reclaim your life.
But how can you choose the rehab that’s right for you? First, it’s important to learn a little more about the different types of rehab programs. In some cases, you’ll need to complete a medical detox so you’re stabilized before treatment. Then you’ll choose between two main rehab settings—inpatient or outpatient rehab.
Inpatient programs require that you live at the facility for the duration of treatment. You receive 24-hour treatment, support, and care from a variety of treatment staff members. Many people benefit from the inpatient environment because it is highly structured and free from drug triggers.
If your addiction is mild and you have a strong support system, you may benefit from an outpatient treatment program in which you attend scheduled treatment sessions during the day and return home at night. There are many different types of treatment programs within these two main settings.
The program that’s the best fit for you will depend on the decision you make based on your personal preferences, addiction, mental health, physical health, treatment priorities, income, and location. To see what’s available in Hialeah, browse our directory today.
