Day-Night Drug Rehab Programs

Day – night drug rehab programs can mean the difference between long-term sobriety and rapid relapse for people who complete inpatient outpatient treatment. While addiction treatment helps addicts rapidly alter the ways they think and act, they often require additional therapy before they are ready for fully independent lives in the outside world. Quickly changing from a life of addiction to one of conscientious health and sobriety is a difficult experience which may require time for adjustment. To make the most of clinical drug rehab, addicts need to understand their options for continued care through Day – Night programs – an intermediate program between residential inpatient and intensive outpatient.

Continuing the Progress of Inpatient Treatment

Although they only last thirty to ninety days, residential inpatient programs help even the most severely addicted people turn their lives around. With counseling, group discussions, biofeedback treatment, and other proven therapies, rehab specialists help inpatients make drastic changes to their thoughts and behavior patterns. However, these changes are often only the first steps in the long process of addiction recovery.

Day and night treatment – also called partial hospitalization – allows addicts to continue the therapies that have already worked so well. Although these patients no longer live full-time at their treatment facilities, they still attend clinical therapies for several hours each day. They continue communication with their addiction counselors and are able to make more personal breakthroughs and develop additional strategies for dealing with their cravings.

Additional Supervision

When partial hospitalization patients are finished with their daily therapies, they are allowed to return to their homes or to specialized clinic housing. They are supervised by clinic staff members who ensure that they stay away from drugs, alcohol, and other addictive substances. This level of supervision is also crucial in preventing relapse as addicts make their transitions from clinical living to the outside world.

These supervisors can also make sure that drug rehab patients stay consistent with their daily recovery exercises. Staying sober is not simply the passive endeavor of avoiding drugs – it requires constant effort in the form of meditation, self-reflection, and bodily care. Addicts who integrate these activities into their new lives stand a much better chance of staying clean for the long haul.

Practicing Sober Living

It can be far too shocking for some addicts to make the change from addicted life to clean living after only a month of inpatient treatment. Managing new routines, making good decisions in social life, and dealing with the pains of post acute withdrawal can be too much for rehab patients to deal with on their own. Thankfully, day and night programs allow addicts to begin their new lives gradually.

Supervisory staff can make sure that addicts make the right choices as they practice their new routines and interact with friends and family. They can also help patients avoid relapse if they encounter unexpected cravings or unidentified addiction triggers. The transition back into society is one of the scariest and most unpredictable times for an addict, and practicing a new lifestyle can make or break the success of a recovery program.
