When it comes to drug addiction, there are no boundaries. People of all ages, genders, and income ranges, working in every industry and living in every part of the country are equally susceptible to the disorder. In fact, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimates of Americans over the age of 12, about one in 10 is living with a substance abuse or addiction disorder. Unfortunately, only about 11 percent of those over 2.6 million people get help or the treatment they need to heal, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

There is a range of different addiction treatment programs and services available to patients in need of help overcoming a drug abuse or dependence problem. Each will offer a different style of treatment based on a specific philosophy of care and characterized by a unique set of treatment services that last for varying intervals. Patients should seek out treatment that is personalized to meet their needs, no matter whether they opt for inpatient treatment, intensive outpatient care, or outpatient addiction treatment services.
Upon intake, patients will be stabilized if necessary and then provided with intensive detox assistance and care. Medical supervision will be provided as withdrawal symptoms fade, and evaluation and diagnostic services are offered. A unique treatment plan based on the needs of the patient will be created, and a personal therapist will be provided to the patient, allowing him to have a voice in his recovery and receive one-on-one support throughout the treatment process. A schedule of therapeutic options will be chosen based on those needs and with an eye toward reaching the chosen treatment goals. As the patient reaches those goals, new ones will be created with an adjustment to the therapeutic choices if necessary. Additionally, if a problem arises during the course of treatment or if the patient requires specific support in a certain area (e.g., treatment for a co-occurring mental health disorder, help managing legal issues, family support and therapy, etc.), these can be addressed through therapy and the support of on-site substance abuse treatment professionals and peers.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment
Intensive outpatient addiction treatment programs offer many of the same services described above but without the round-the-clock care and support. Additionally, there may not be detox services or heavy emphasis on medications for detox, addiction cravings, or co-occurring mental health disorders. Instead, intensive outpatient treatment programs often require attendance for 4-5 hours a day during the week, allowing the patient to return home at night and on the weekends. To ensure the integrity of the program and that all patients are remaining drug- and alcohol-free, random and frequent drug tests are given. Patients may be encouraged or required to work or attend 12-step meetings out in the community during off times, and if they miss a certain number of treatment sessions, there may be penalties. The length of treatment may be longer in an outpatient program as compared to an inpatient rehab. After the first few weeks of treatment, patients may be “stepped down” to four and then three days of therapy sessions, or the number of hours may be cut back over time to allow the patient to slowly reintegrate into independent sober living while maintaining an ongoing connection with therapeutic support.
Outpatient Treatment Services The least intensive treatment option is to create a unique schedule of treatment services based on personal need and interests in recovery. Often resourced after inpatient rehab, many patients maintain an ongoing connection to the therapeutic community as they rebuild their lives in sobriety by attending personal therapy sessions, 12-step meetings, and any number of alternative and/or holistic treatment options that speak to their needs.
