How Do I Choose Between Inpatient and Outpatient Rehabilitation?
Drug and alcohol rehab treatments are very beneficial to anyone who is suffering from an addiction problem.
There are two main types of addiction treatments available: inpatient and outpatient alcohol and drug rehab.
Inpatient rehab sometimes referred to as residential rehab, requires you to stay at the centre for the entire duration of your treatment.
Whereas outpatient rehab, allows you to remain at home and travel to the clinic daily for your treatments and sessions.
Outpatient rehab is only recommended for people with a mild addiction and it’s not a viable option for longevity for many.
Below is a list of people who would not benefit from outpatient treatments:
- A person who is drinking more than 30 units of alcohol per day
- A person with co-occurring mental health issues with their addiction
- A person who experiences suicidal thoughts regularly
- A person with significant chronic mental health problems that would make it difficult for them to detox safely at home
- A person who may have tried to get sober in the past but has failed to sustain sobriety
- A person who is prone to becoming violent when intoxicated or under the influence of any substance
- A person who experiences delirium tremens, Wernicke’s encephalopathy, or alcoholic seizure
If you find that you resonate with any of the above statements, then it is recommended that you seek help via inpatient rehab.
This is because there are too many risks involved with outpatient care.
If you have any further questions or concerns about inpatient and outpatient rehab, contact us. We are happy to answer and provide you with any advice you need to make the right choice for yourself.

What Happens When I Arrive at Rehab?
The first thing that happens when you arrive at rehab is an assessment of your physical and mental health.
This will help to determine the best recovery plan for your personal needs. Every addict is different and so everyone requires a different method of treatment.
It is very rare for two forms of addiction treatments to be the same.
The first step in your plan will be the alcohol and drug detoxification process. This is where you will rid your body of the harmful substances and toxins that come with substance abuse.
During this time, it is likely that you will experience a range of withdrawal symptoms. These withdrawal effects can range from mild to severe.
The severity of the symptoms will depend on the substance in question and the severity of your addiction.
Throughout the detox, you will be monitored by medical professionals to ensure your detox is as safe and as comfortable as possible.
In some cases, the staff may administer prescribed medication to help with the withdrawal symptoms.
The aim of physical detoxing is to create a clean foundation where, together, we can begin the work toward long-term sobriety.
Once you have gone through the drug and alcohol detox, it will be time to tackle the psychological side of your addiction.
This is done through various further treatments and therapies. During your therapies, you will explore the deep psychological triggers of your addiction.
You will also learn new ways of thinking and ways to change your previous behaviours into more healthy and sustainable ones for your future.
Therapy sessions are completed on a one-to-one basis or group basis. You will go through many different therapies and modern therapy techniques are employed such as cognitive behavioural therapy.
You may also take part in alternative therapies such as music therapy, drama therapy, and art therapy, which are all designed to help you express your emotions.
Being able to find a way to alleviate stress and anxiety through alternative therapies can create a safe space you can turn to in times of high stress when you return home.

Frequently Asked Questions
How to help a family member with addiction?
We offer a friend and family referral service to help family members get their loved one the help they need. After treatment has finished and family members are in more constant contact with the recovering loved one it’s important to be there for them. It’s also important for family members to look after themselves – many find comfort in attending support meetings as well to connect with people going through the same thing. Openness and understanding all around are vital to moving forward and might make it easier to spot any warning signs down the line.
What effect does addiction have on mental health?
Addiction, whether it be drugs, alcohol or both, can have a massive effect on a person’s mental health. It can acerbate current mental health issues as substances cloud the mind and impair judgement. Drinking or doing drugs to self-medicate can worsen depression, heighten anxiety, and start a cycle where a person feels they can only cope with their mental health problems by self-medicating.
What is the difference between a substance or behavioural addiction?
Substance addiction is being addicted to something like drugs or alcohol, stuff that you can put into your body to change the chemistry of it and change your outlook. Behavioural addiction is centred around being addicted to certain activities. These things can be gambling, sex, playing video games. Substance addiction can cause more physical problems as you are putting toxins into your body whereas behavioural addiction affects your brain and emotions but can lead to physical issues such as self-harming and suicide. Both are dangerous but equally beatable.
