Drug Rehab Centers

Drug rehab centers help those with substance abuse problems to overcome and manage their addictions. Drug addiction facilities often coexist with alcohol rehab centers since both substance abuse problems share some similarities and many who visit a treatment facility have both types of addictions and need to be treated at one facility. Rehab centers also offer some unique methods and treatments, depending upon the drugs of choice used by the person and the person's history.

Drug Rehab Center

Addiction rehab centers usually offer several programs including inpatient, residential, outpatient, detox with long or short-term options. The methods used in these different programs can vary from 12-Step, group and individual psychotherapy to12-Step alternative methods such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, the Matrix Model, Supportive-Expressive Psychotherapy, Individualized Addiction Counseling, Motivational Enhancement Therapy, Behavioral Therapy and Multidimensional Family Therapy (MDFT).

Inpatient Centers

Inpatient drug rehab centers are good choices for those with moderate to severe drug dependency problems and a long history of trying to maintain sobriety. Treatment at inpatient facilities can be for as little as 28 days or for 6 months or longer, depending upon the needs of the individual. Inpatient addiction centers are usually located at licensed hospitals whereas residential treatment facilities do not have to meet the same rigorous medical standards. The cost associated with inpatient care is also generally much higher than with residential care.

Residential Facilities

Residential drug rehab facilities offer a "getaway" atmosphere that cannot be offered by inpatient care in a hospital setting. Residential centers may be offered on a ranch setting or other types of retreat settings apart from the hustle and bustle of daily life. These settings are thought to promote family cooperation better than other settings. Some residential addiction facilities focus entirely on adolescents.

Outpatient Centers

Outpatient drug rehab centers are for those persons who have mild to moderate addiction problems and a short history of substance abuse. Most outpatient addiction facilities allow the person to stay at home with family and continue employment while undergoing their treatment program. The addicted person's commitment is the best indicator for success for this type of program.

Detox Facilities

Most facilities do not focus solely on the detox portion of drug treatment, but picking a center with a compatible drug detox rehab program may mean the difference between success or failure. Some rehab centers use tradition detox methods while others have turned to newer methodology such as having the person do detox while under anesthesia with the supervision of a board-certified anesthesiologist.

Long and Short-Term Programs

Addiction centers may offer inpatient, outpatient and / or residential care on a long-term or short-term basis. Some will only offer a small combination of options. For instance, some retreat residential facilities only offer short-term (30-day) options for treatment. Other facilities such as some inpatient hospital settings only offer long-term (3 to 6-months or more) options.

The two largest factors in determining whether a short-term or long-term rehab center is needed are the severity of the addiction and the length of the history for the addiction. The higher severity and longer history usually means a long-term addiction facility is needed and a less severe and shorter addiction history may be treated with intensive short-term methods.
