After an intervention, your loved one may be taken to a treatment center, also known as rehab. Treatment centers for substance abuse can be either inpatient or outpatient.
- Inpatient treatment centers are residential facilities where the patient lives while they receive treatment for their substance abuse.
- Outpatient treatment centers are not residential facilities. The patient lives outside the facility and visits to receive treatment for their substance abuse.
We recommend inpatient treatment centers to our families. Living at an inpatient treatment center helps their loved ones avoid the temptations and influences of the outside world that trigger their substance use.
Additionally, we recommend a treatment program of 90 days or more.
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports, “participation for less than 90 days in rehabilitation, is of limited effectiveness, and treatment lasting significantly longer is recommended for maintaining positive outcomes.”
We understand that it can be very confusing and difficult when selecting a treatment center and program for your loved one to attend after an intervention.
We have helped 1000s of families and have visited hundreds of treatment centers over the years. We are more than happy to give our opinion based on our experience.
