Alcohol and drug addiction cannot be tackled alone. Like other diseases, it takes personal motivation to change, a greater understanding of the disease and seeking medical/professional help from experts in your disease. Luckily, we have proven treatments for substance abuse disorders. There are many forms and venues of treatment depending on the presentation of the client and which level of care would be most appropriate. The most publicized form of treatment is the “rehab.” This is an inpatient and most restrictive level of care, which often includes medically monitored detoxification and can last between 2-4 weeks. The referral to rehab usually reflects that the client cannot receive treatment while in the community or at home. Rehabs can be a very important phase of treatment, assisting the client with education, 24/7 supervision and intensive group and individual treatment. However, sometimes inpatient rehab can be very costly, and sometimes will not be reimbursed fully from your insurance carrier. A rehab experience, while very important, isn’t sustainable as an ongoing model of treatment in the long-term.
The most common level of care is outpatient treatment. The disease of addiction requires a lifelong commitment to personal health and transformation! The length of outpatient treatment can last from 30 days to over a year, depending on the client’s needs and frequency of the care. When a client seeks outpatient care, they are usually able to function in the community while receiving treatment. There are many levels of outpatient care such as:
- Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
- Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
- General Outpatient Program (GOP)
- Ambulatory Detoxification
- Psychiatric Evaluation and Medication Management
- Individual, Group and Family therapy
Providence Treatment is an outpatient program providing quality alcohol and drug addiction treatment. We have gathered seasoned clinicians to evaluate, diagnose and provide effective and proven therapies to assist the client in establishing an attainable recovery program that will aid in their sustainable recovery. We have a comfortable and confidential environment, tracking the progress of each client and supporting them in the most appropriate level of outpatient care. If a client relapses, then we meet as a treatment team and discuss with the client the next step. In some situations, we may refer the client to an inpatient program for stabilization and return to our program. In other cases, we may increase the dosage of treatment in the outpatient program with increased sober supports and more frequent meetings with their sponsor and Fellowship involvement.
