Inpatient Vs Outpatient Rehab

What Type Of Rehab Will Suit You Best? An Inpatient Facility Or An Outpatient Facility?

When it comes to choosing the correct level of rehab care for yourself, you want to make sure you have explored all your options. Once you have been in touch with your doctor or learned about your NHS addiction choices, you will face an immediate option. That choice will be between inpatient and outpatient rehab – but what are they and how do you choose? Let’s find out.

What is Inpatient Rehab?

Inpatient rehab is the type of rehab clinic that we go to and live inside until we are recovered. These are sometimes called residential rehab clinics. They operate by filling your day from end to end, so that you don’t have time to think about using. A residential rehab clinic allows you to detox, live in, and rehab in the same building.

Inpatient rehab means that you don’t go home at the end of the day. This allows the medical team more control over what you are exposed to. You are given a meal plan that is tailored to you. You can take part in educational workshops, in holistic and complementary therapies, and even have a meal plan made for you.

Inpatient rehab is like the rehab clinic service offered by Verve Health. Using their exemplary service, you have access to high quality rooms and excellent rehab facilities, all for an affordable rate. Affordable luxury rehab is the new normal, especially for those that know they want inpatient care from the outset.

What is Outpatient Rehab?

Outpatient rehab clinics are a little different to residential ones. The main reason they are different is that outpatient clinics allow you to go home at the end of the night. If you are seeing a specialist alcohol counsellor for sessions on the NHS, this would be classed as outpatient treatment.

Outpatient treatment is just as good as the level of care that you would experience as an inpatient. Because you don’t live in the rehab clinic while you recover, the medical team don’t have full control over things like diet and exercise planning. You get to go home at night, meaning that outpatient rehab is better for those with jobs, children, or home responsibilities.

The Difference between INPATIENT and OUTPATIENT treatment

What is Best for You?

Which type of rehab works for you is dependant on your life style. Many of us couldn’t get a full 28 days off work to complete an end-to-end rehab stay. Some of us have busy lives and need to work treatment around the structure of those busy days. For these reasons, we make the following recommendations.

Outpatient treatment is best for those who cannot get time off work to recover. It is made for people with busy lives, who must fit recovery around their daily tasks. Outpatient rehab is great for those that have already recovered from an addiction, but that want to top up their skills.

Inpatient rehab has a slightly higher success rate. It is best for anyone who is serious about recovery, once and for all. It is made for those who can afford a little time off work and those that want to treat their addiction all in one go.

Neither type of rehab is easier than the other. Whatever you do, be determined and you will eventually beat addiction.
