There are two main types of treatment programs: inpatient (or residential) and outpatient. Which program you go into is determined by your needs; both programs have been shown to be very effective in treating mental illnesses and addictions. In general, inpatient programs tend to cost more than outpatient programs because you are paying for your room and board while you receive treatment. With both programs, you will attend various psychotherapy sessions alone and in group settings to learn more about your condition and develop healthy coping skills. The following is a brief breakdown of each program type and what they are best for:
- Individuals who needed monitoring and care 24/7
- People who can take time off work and have someone to take care of children and other household responsibilities
- Those who have more severe mental illnesses or addictions and require more intense treatment
- People who want to stay in a relaxing environment where there is reduced exposure to stressors and triggers
- Clients who prefer to take part in specialized treatment services, such as acupuncture, yoga, exercise, meditation, and more
- People who want to spend less on treatment services
- Those who don’t require constant supervision
- Individuals who have a supportive home environment with reduced exposure to triggers and stressors
- People who can meet at the treatment center several times a week for therapy and other treatment methods
- Clients who want to maintain work and home responsibilities while receiving treatment
There are several factors to consider when selecting a treatment program, including: transportation, childcare availability, home environment, adequate home support, ability to suspend work and other responsibilities, need for specialized services, and more. Speak with someone from a reputable treatment center today to determine which option would be best for you. Both come with advantages and disadvantages, but it’s all based on your needs.
