Residential Treatment After Detox
At CuraWest we recommend our clients transition into residential treatment once they have been physically stabilized in our detox program. Residential treatment typically lasts for between 30 days and 90 days depending on the severity of the addiction and the presence of any underlying issues (along with several other factors). In residential treatment clients undergo intensive individual, group and family therapy, develop relapse prevention techniques and healthy coping mechanisms and work through any underlying concerns which might have contributed to the development of addiction. Residential treatment almost always comes recommended, seeing as it provides clients with the structure and support they need to maintain abstinence as they heal on a physical, mental and emotional basis. However, residential rehab isn’t right for everyone.
Outpatient Treatment After Detox
In some cases, outpatient treatment is the best option. Outpatient treatment provides a more flexible level of care and is an ideal choice for clients who have personal obligations they cannot take an extended break from. While we recommend residential treatment whenever possible, addiction recovery is not a one-size-fits-all process. You might decide to enter into an outpatient program after detox if:
- You are the sole caretaker of one or more dependents, or you have other family-related obligations you cannot step away from for weeks at a time.
- You have a job or career you cannot step away from for a prolonged period of time.
- You are currently enrolled in school and you cannot easily take a leave of absence to attend residential treatment.
- You are uninsured and you cannot afford to cover the cost of residential treatment or PHP out-of-pocket.
- You were sober for a long period of time and recently experienced a brief return to substance use.
- You are suffering from a mild substance use disorder and no underlying issues.
