Addiction Day Treatment

Day Treatment Addiction Recovery

There are specific advantages to Day Treatment over inpatient or residential care. Although in some cases inpatient is necessary, for stabilization, most treatment is equally successful on an outpatient basis.

The Advantages are:

Attending a local program can help build clean and sober relationships in the patient’s home community. This support or recovery network includes peers, local 12-step meetings, our staff and others in recovery. These recovery connections also prevent a patient from becoming isolated, which can often occur with inpatient programs, when they return home. The Family is involved in the patients care from day one. Monday is family night is family night, therefore the patient gets the added support for family members from the onset of their treatment.

Patients can continue fulfilling daily responsibilities, i.e. work schedule & family life. The patient will receive all of the treatment aspects of an inpatient program, minus sleeping at the facility, thus achieving recovery in real time in their community. There are significant cost reductions. Typical inpatient costs is $30,000 for one month versus our cost of a quarter of that for 2 months, including lifetime aftercare. An additional bonus is that the aftercare program is local, so there is no lapse in care. The staff, peers and family all remain constant in the patient’s treatment, providing a continuum in care from the intake all the way to aftercare.

Addictive behavior is exacerbated by triggers in a patient’s environment. Inpatient treatment removes a patient from his/her environment, therefore removing triggers until the patient comes home. Often, when placed back into their environment, following an inpatient stay, the patient is faced with these triggers, consequent cravings, but then lacks the support system created while in residential.
