With so many various treatment alternatives in Rice to decide on it can be difficult deciding which one would be the best for you or a family member. If you can't commit to or afford residential or inpatient treatment there are outpatient alternatives that are more intensive than normal outpatient , such as outpatient day treatment that is also sometimes referred to as partial hospitalization. The most apparent difference is that individuals do not remain at the center like with inpatient, and return home after treatment every night. Outpatient day treatment or partial hospitalization typically entails rehab services being offered at least 5 days per week, for up to 8 hrs per day. Aside from this option being used as a main treatment option, outpatient day treatment or partial hospitalization can also help individuals who have finished inpatient rehab transition back into a sober lifestyle.
Treatment services include traditional rehab services like group therapy and individual counseling, but there are also relapse prevention elements in place in most cases like support groups that are known to help prevent destructive behaviors and inspire individuals to remain sober and get treatment. For people having trouble with a co-occurring mental health disorder, many outpatient day treatment or partial hospitalization programs also offer treatment for dual diagnosis.
