Types of Addiction Treatment

Medical detoxification, also known as “detox,” safely manages a person’s physical withdrawal symptoms when they stop using a drug. However, it’s important to note the difference between detox and treatment. Detox is simply the first step in navigating your path to treatment. After completing a safe medical detox, the next step is to find the right treatment program, which could include residential, intensive outpatient, outpatient or partial hospitalization.

The following include the most common forms of addiction treatment:

Other levels of treatment include:

Co-Occurring Treatment
Co-occurring conditions take place when a patient has a substance use issue that coincides with a mental health issue (depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, schizophrenia, etc.). If you struggle with co-occurring disorders, you should strive to address both your addiction issue and your mental health issue at the same time, as the two are interrelated and can trigger one another. At Inspira, patients can address all behavioral and mental health disorders under one roof.

After-Care or Continuing Care
Once one level of treatment is complete, the patient is often introduced to the next less intensive service or level of care available. For example, once a person completes residential treatment, they still need support transitioning to and for when they return home. A less intensive level of care such as a partial hospitalization program or intensive outpatient program (IOP) will be established so that services are in place for when the patient returns to their home environment.
