With so many various rehab alternatives in Bellingham to decide on it can be confusing which program is best for you or a loved one. If you cannot afford or commit to residential or inpatient treatment there are outpatient options that are more intensive than normal outpatient , such as outpatient day treatment which is also sometimes called partial hospitalization. The most obvious difference is that individuals don't stay at the program like in inpatient, and go home after treatment every night. Outpatient day treatment or partial hospitalization typically consists of rehab services being offered at least five days a week, for up to 8 hours each day. Apart from this option being used as a primary rehab option, outpatient day treatment or partial hospitalization can also be of help to people who have finished inpatient rehab reintegrate back into a sober lifestyle.
Treatment services include standard rehab services like group therapy and individual counseling, but there are also relapse prevention services put into place in most cases like psychotherapies which are known to help prevent bad habits and inspire clients to get treated and stay sober. For individuals having trouble with a co-occurring mental health disorder, many outpatient day treatment or partial hospitalization facilities also offer care for dual diagnosis.
