Residential vs. Outpatient treatment

It is easy to become overwhelmed with the number of options for addiction treatment that are out there. That is where we can come in.

The process of searching for treatment and understanding which treatments are most beneficial doesn’t have to be so difficult, and it can mostly be boiled down to the two main options: Outpatient and residential treatment. But what is the difference?

The main difference between these addiction treatment options is where your treatment takes place.

With outpatient treatment, you reside mostly at home throughout your recovery and detox, but take frequent trips to the clinic for check-ins, tests, and further treatment.

On a residential rehab programme in a drug and alcohol rehab in Topsham you reside solely on the rehab premises, and only leave once your treatment is over.

Whatever option you are advised to opt for is decided by the results of two assessments that we perform during the admissions process, which tells us what treatment will be most beneficial to you in relation to your addiction and aspects such as the substance you have used and the length of time you have used for.

If you wish to undergo outpatient treatment but are instead recommended for a residential rehab programme, this will most likely be because your addiction is much too severe to be handled as an outpatient, and you instead need more attention and treatment on-site.

It could also be as simple as the substance you use, as some substances require more of a healing process than others, meaning only those who have used much lower class drugs will be viable for outpatient or even fully at-home treatment.

A family history of substance use can also mean that you are suggested to opt for residential rehab instead of outpatient treatment.

The benefits of residential rehab

Whilst outpatient treatment can make you feel more free, independent, and in control of your recovery, it is not always the best option.

To succeed with the outpatient treatment you have to be highly self-motivated and dedicated to your recovery journey, and it also is incredibly helpful to have a network of friends and family around to help you when you are at home in between appointments at the clinic.

Sadly, this is not the case for everyone, so many are referred to residential rehab treatment options.

However, residential rehab is actually the most effective route to recovery, though it can be seen as the scariest due to it being a huge upheaval of one’s life.

Despite the fear of the unknown that comes with rehabilitation, residential rehab programmes boast many benefits that other addiction treatment options just do not offer.

One of the main advantages is that all your treatment and care takes place under one roof.

Though this may seem like a small detail, remaining in one place during your treatment allows you to focus more on your recovery journey and the therapy you experience along the way.

Constantly travelling from the clinic back to your home and vice versa can provide you with many unnecessary distractions, not to mention the constant temptations that are in the ‘outside world’, ready and waiting to tempt you back into substance use.

Staying in rehab for your whole journey means you have no way to fulfil these cravings and can concentrate instead on your treatment.

Detachment from a possibly toxic home environment is also a great benefit to residential rehab. If your home carries with it one or more reasons that led you to substance use in the first place, then it is not the greatest place to attempt to withdraw or recover.

This could be in the form of a pressuring loved one, a dysfunctional family, an abusive relationship, a traumatic event that took place there, or even just the memories of these things that linger around your home.

Removing yourself from these possible emotional triggers can greatly impact your recovery, and means you are much less likely to relapse.

It can also be incredibly healing to meet and get to know others who are in similar situations to yours.

Though this is possible with outpatient treatment, residential rehab offers the closest connections and more time to become acquainted with the people you meet in group therapy sessions.

Getting to know each other and sharing stories of your addictions can get emotional at times, but it can also be extremely rewarding and beneficial to your recovery.

The general care and attention that you receive on a residential rehab programme are also unparalleled.

The team at your chosen drug and alcohol rehab in Topsham will be able to constantly monitor you and your progress, which can oftentimes spur you on to continue improving, as you see the progress you make along the way.
