With so many different treatment options available, it can be hard to know which one is right for you. In this blog, we’ll go over the difference between inpatient and outpatient treatment to give you some more information about these options. Equipped with this knowledge, you can more easily decide which one is the right path for your treatment journey.
At Avalon Malibu, we provide both inpatient and outpatient treatment programs. We understand the importance of having access to both options, so we provide a variety of resources for those looking to improve their mental health or begin addiction recovery.
Inpatient treatment is typically recommended for those that have more intense needs. This treatment option offers live-in care for a client during the course of treatment. They will have access to the various members of their care team as well as different treatments and possibly medications. Inpatient treatment can add safety to the detox process and more intensive, consistent care for serious substance use or mental health disorders.
If you’re feeling unsure about enrolling in inpatient treatment, know that you’re not alone. There are many different options and it can be overwhelming to decide which is the right enrollment choice. If you’re curious about inpatient treatment, call a local treatment center and see what they offer to get a picture of what to expect.
Outpatient treatment means an individual commutes to the treatment facility to receive scheduled care throughout the week. This treatment is typically reserved for those with less intense needs or those who have already completed an inpatient stay. Individuals may receive outpatient treatment daily, weekly, or monthly, depending on the level of need they need.
Outpatient treatment can be a great way to get support while still remaining in the home environment for the majority of the time. However, there are some things, such as detoxing, that are best to do during inpatient treatment. This level of care can be an excellent way to get support while still attending to other responsibilities and remaining in a space that’s comfortable for you.
