Finding the right treatment program for substance abuse and addiction is not always easy.  It can be difficult to find the  program that fits each of your individualized needs and works with your schedule. Here at Footprints of Serenity, we want to help you succeed within your recovery process. Whether you are just beginning, starting over, or finding treatment for a friend, please read below for the different types of addiction treatment options available! 

Different Types of Drug Treatment

There are many different types of treatments for addiction. These treatment programs can range from inpatient treatment programs to outpatient treatment programs, and even group counseling. It is important to find a treatment program that fits your individualized recovery needs. In the beginning it will probably be difficult for you to determine what your needs are (especially if you’re seeking treatment on behalf of someone else), but with a little research you should be able to tell! 

Each of the drug treatment programs listed below can be different depending on the facility. This means that inpatient treatment at one rehab may vary from inpatient treatment at another. That is why it is important to research each program and each facility that you are interested in. These programs can range and depend on time, severity of the addiction, individualized needs, and so much more. 


Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient Treatment programs can range from long-term residential treatment to short-term residential treatment. Long-term residential treatment  provides 24-hour care and may have a length of stay between 6 to 12 months (or shorter).  This treatment focuses on developing accountability and responsibility within the client’s personal lives. 

Short-term residential treatment programs can help to provide an intensive of brief treatment. The short-term residential treatment program usually ranges from 3 to 6 weeks. After the 3-6 weeks of the inpatient program, then the client usually has an extended outpatient therapy and/or group counseling. After this treatment program, it is important for clients to continue to remain in a support group to stay connected to sobriety. 

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment programs vary in all types and intensity of services. Outpatient treatments cost substantially less than inpatient treatment. Outpatient treatment programs are suitable for people who aren’t able to remove themselves from ‘reality’ for an extended period of time, meaning outpatient treatment is possible if you work full time. These programs will help to work around your schedule and your lifestyle. Group counseling can be an important component of outpatient treatment programs. They may also be designed to help not only with the recovery process but also with co-occurring disorders. Some intensive outpatient treatment programs provide direct services for individuals suffering from a substance abuse disorder or a substance abuse disorder with a co-occuring disorder.

Recovery Groups

Group therapy can be used to capitalize on social reinforcement. It can be offered by peer  discussion, accountability superiors, and promoting drug-free lifestyles. There are many different types of recovery groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Cocaine Anonymous, SMART Recovery program, Women for Sobriety, Moderation Management, and so much more. These programs help connect individuals with others who were also struggling with the same type of addiction or substance abuse problem. Not only are they similar within their substance abuse problems, but they are all so similar with their goals. That goal being: continuing the recovery process and sustaining sobriety.  These recovery groups are a way for each individual to get support from one another, and can offer insight and hope.
