Luxury Treatment in Orange County
Addiction treatment programs often vary in their duration, location, and format through which treatment is provided. The two primary types of addiction treatment programs are inpatient and outpatient. There are key differences between each and, in some cases, variations in the level of care provided and the expectations one must meet before outpatient therapy is possible.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient
What's the Difference?
The sheer level of information one often finds when deciding which treatment program will provide the best benefit for themselves or a loved one can quickly become overwhelming. But it is crucially important to know the difference between models of care in treatment facilities. Whether geared towards detox, substance abuse counseling, mental health services, or all of the above, most facilities can generally be divided into inpatient and outpatient programs.
Inpatient programs occur within a medical facility such as a hospital or residential treatment center. While in a residential treatment center, clients remain under the care of a highly trained staff of doctors and treatment professionals for the duration of their stay. One positive aspect of this kind of care is the atmosphere of many inpatient facilities where the client removes themselves from the day-to-day environment, which generally triggers or feeds their addiction. In many treatment centers, clients have little contact with the outside world to immerse themselves in treatment and recovery. This form of temporary isolation from old friends, negative habits, and familiar places help ease the challenges that often come with resisting old habits during the early stages of fighting addiction.
The most significant difference between inpatient and outpatient programs is that those who choose to undergo outpatient care are not admitted to a facility for 24-hour care. Instead, they can live in their homes or in a sober living environment where residents agree to support each other by remaining clean while living together. Clients in an outpatient program near their homes may continue with work, school, and family activities while actively participating in a treatment and recovery program. A positive effect of the outpatient model is that the client remains active in their usual activities; however, outpatient is not suitable for everyone. If your addiction is such that inpatient detox is essential to recovery or you have previously completed rehab and relapsed, an outpatient program may not be suitable for you.
The Need for Treatment
How Residential Inpatient Treatmentin Orange County Can Help
People choose to go to inpatient residential treatment for a variety of issues. However, as alluded to above, there are specific struggles that are almost always served by a residential level of care. These can include co-occurring mental health disorders, lack of adequate support at home, having tried lower levels of care without success, relapse, or concerns about exposure to triggers or being able to maintain treatment while remaining at home. Seeking treatment for substance abuse addiction is vital to recovery and continued sobriety.

Each residential treatment center is different from others in some form, but regardless of the differences, they all share some standard features that can be found across the board.
Medically-Monitored Detox & Withdrawal Support
The initial days of substance withdrawal can be the most challenging. The physical components involved in freeing the body from its dependence on an addictive substance can be unpleasant, painful, depending on the substance used, dangerous. When people enter a drug treatment program, one of the first and most essential tasks is to detox the system and cleanse the body of the presence of any substance. In a residential treatment setting, this is best performed through medically supported detox. Available medical supports help limit unpleasant symptoms and mitigate potentially dangerous symptoms associated with the detox process. The ability to manage withdrawal symptoms is vital to a successful residential program. A person is more likely to remain in rehab if unpleasant withdrawal symptoms are kept under control.
Truly Individualized Therapies
Another important component of addiction treatment involves psychological and social therapies designed to help the addicted individual understand and manage the factors in their life that contribute to addiction. This is especially beneficial for those with a dual diagnosis, such as addiction coupled with another mental health disorder such as depression. In the case of a dual diagnosis, it is essential to treat all co-occurring issues simultaneously. Residential treatment centers will generally offer several different therapeutic intervention modalities as opposed to traditional “talk therapy” commonly seen in many outpatient settings. Most residential treatment facilities operate from a holistic approach, meaning they offer modalities designed to treat the whole person (mind, body, and spirit). Individual therapy is essential to effective addiction treatment.
Family & Relationship Counseling
During the residential treatment process, it is helpful to get family or partners involved in therapy. These sessions encourage family members to support newly developed skills and new behaviors after treatment is over. Taking the time to teach the person’s loved ones about substance abuse disorder and its implications can help them gain the ability to support their loved one’s recovery once they return home. It is essential for family members and significant others to learn how to recognize and avoid codependent or enabling behaviors. This can help build a healthier way of relating to each other and help prevent negative thoughts or triggering situations that may lead.
Support, Structure & Aftercare
Residential facilities offer continuous monitoring and 24-hour support to all individuals in their care. This is a significant advantage when compared to other levels of care. Residential centers typically have a structured schedule, which helps to contribute to recovery. Another significant benefit of a residential treatment program is setting clients up for success after leaving their treatment. If clients can practice and begin using the skills and resources, they’re learning while in therapy, they are more likely to maintain recovery and sobriety in the months and years following rehab.
