Comparing Inpatient and Outpatient Rehabilitation
Outpatient programs depend on you to show up at daytime or evening counseling sessions and support groups. Many outpatient recovery programs incorporate family therapy so you can strengthen your relationships at home, giving you important support as you recover.
If you’ve used drugs or alcohol heavily, or for a long time, you have probably become physically dependent on these substances to function, and in this instance, a residential treatment facility might be better able to help you.
Residential facilities provide medically led detoxification from drugs and alcohol, prior to a strict regimen of drug rehab counseling.
Myths About Addiction
Drug and alcohol addiction is a widely misunderstood condition. Many people wrongly believe some of these addiction myths:
- Addiction is a weakness.
- All you need to overcome addiction is enough willpower.
- Rehab doesn’t work; if it did, relapse rates wouldn’t be so high.
- Genetic factors alone cause addiction.
In fact, addiction is a chronic disease that causes physiological changes in the body and brain. Most addicts need the support and guidance of a drug rehab program in order to recover. Even when relapse occurs, it doesn’t mean there has been no benefit from rehab; many addicts encounter relapse on their road to long-term sobriety.
Addiction isn’t merely hereditary – your behavior and surroundings can also influence it.
