What are the different levels of care?
MEDICALLY SUPERVISED DETOX
- Medically supervised detox is necessary to comfortably remove toxins from the body. The clinical team can address any medical risks associated with abstinence from drugs or alcohol.
- Intensive outpatient provides individuals with the chance to receive therapeutic support, learn coping skills, and integrate into the recovery community. Clients typically meet at a facility 1-3 times a week over the duration of their treatment process. Intensive Outpatient usually includes both group and individual care.
- Residential treatment offers 24-hour care. Clients live at the treatment facility while engaging in their treatment process. They are therapeutically supported while being fully integrated into the recovery community. Typical stays are between 30-90 days.
- Dual diagnosis treatment programs address any underlying conditions that are fueling the addiction, such as anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, and trauma. Finding a reputable dual diagnosis program is crucial if recommended following an assessment.
- Sober living is designed to provide accountability for people leaving residential treatment, involved in outpatient programs, or those that continue to relapse. Sober living is designed to help addicts and alcoholics bridge the gap between treatment and autonomous living. Drug and alcohol screening, chores, and a set curfew are typical rules.
- Transitional living is another less-common treatment option for individuals that need a higher level of care than sober living but are ready to move out of residential treatment. Transitional Living includes a clinical component and less freedom than a sober living. Some residential treatment centers have their own transitional living programs allowing the clients to have a smooth integration into the new level of care.
