With so many different treatment alternatives in Pacific to choose from it can be difficult deciding which program would be best for you or a family member. If you can't afford or commit to inpatient or residential treatment there are outpatient options which are more intensive than regular outpatient , such as outpatient day treatment that is also sometimes referred to as partial hospitalization. The most apparent difference is that clients don't stay at the center like in inpatient, and go home after treatment each night. Outpatient day treatment or partial hospitalization typically consists of rehab services being offered at least 5 days a week, for up to 8 hrs per day. Apart from this option being used as a primary treatment option, outpatient day treatment or partial hospitalization can also be of help to people who have finished inpatient treatment reintegrate back into a drug-free lifestyle.
Treatment services include traditional treatment services such as group therapy and individual counseling, but there are also relapse prevention services in place in most cases such as support groups that are known to help prevent destructive behaviors and inspire people to get treated and stay sober. For people struggling with a co-occurring mental health issues, many outpatient day treatment or partial hospitalization programs also offer rehab for dual diagnosis.
