Depending on the substance or substances you are abusing, there are different types of treatment available, including inpatient rehab, standard outpatient, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient—each type varying in its intensiveness. Once you enter a program, you will receive an intake assessment, which evaluates your substance abuse, along with your physical and mental health. This information will be used to create an individualized treatment plan for you to follow throughout the program. Your treatment plan may include participating in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), taking prescribed medication, going to group therapy meetings, attending family therapy, and/or engaging in holistic treatments such as acupuncture, meditation, or yoga. The types of treatment modalities and services you receive will depend on the individual rehab’s treatment philosophy.
