If your addiction isn’t as severe, outpatient treatment is another option. Outpatient detox consists of visiting a treatment facility on a regular basis as you’re detoxing from alcohol. However, for the majority of the time, you’ll detox at home. When you visit the treatment facility, you may be prescribed medications which help manage withdrawal symptoms.
Additional benefits of entering an addiction treatment program include:
- Medical stabilization.
- Peer support.
- A safe and structured environment.
- Relapse prevention.
- Therapeutic intervention.
- Family support.
- Continued, long-term treatment (aftercare).
At the end of the day, only you can decide whether detoxing at home or entering an addiction treatment facility is right for you. However, entering an inpatient or outpatient treatment program is highly recommended and allows you to safely detox from alcohol while giving you the best chance at success in recovery.If you need help deciding if an inpatient or outpatient program is right for you, reach out to our team today to learn more about our individualized treatment.
