Drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers help those with substance abuse problems to overcome and manage their addictions. Drug rehab centers 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 for all of their addictions. Drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers also offer some unique methods and treatments, depending upon the drugs of choice used by the addict and the addict’s history.
Some of the different drug and alcohol rehab centers 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 Drug and Alcohol Rehab 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 drug rehab centers can be for as little as 28 days or for 6 months or longer, depending upon the needs of the individual. Inpatient drug rehab 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.
