Outpatient programs are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.
Excellence in drug and alcohol rehab and recovery is the standard at each MFI outpatient treatment center program. Outpatient substance abuse treatment allows clients to remain at home and continue a normal daily routine, while receiving the professional therapy, support and guidance needed to gain control back from an addiction. MFI’s addiction treatment center offers both an Outpatient Program (OP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). They have individually tailored treatment options for men and women, adolescents and professionals in need of an employee assistance program.
Medically Assisted Detox:
Drug and alcohol addiction often takes a heavy toll on one's body. Over time, a physical dependence can develop, meaning the body physiologically needs the substance to function. Detox is the process of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body, a process that can be lethal if mismanaged. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.
As individuals progress in recovery, they’re able to return to everyday activities while working through an intensive outpatient treatment program (IOP). Intensive outpatient is not a live-in, long-term residential treatment but allows the person to live in the community while receiving help. When appropriate, some can enter treatment through the intensive outpatient program, as it is also effective for helping those in the early stages of chemical dependency. Programs are designed to meet the needs of individual clients and to work with family and professional schedules; meeting for 3 hours, 3 days a week for roughly 8 weeks.
Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient's individual requirements.
Each residential treatment center with MFI offers individualized and effective substance abuse rehab with an esteemed record of success for addiction treatment. MFI’s drug treatment center provides accredited, structured, and professionally staffed, short and long term care at five facilities in Southern California’s Inland Empire. Long-term residential treatment offers the most effective method to reestablish healthy living habits. This involves living at a facility while undergoing intensive and evidenced based treatment modalities for substance abuse or chemical dependency. Their successful client outcomes are evidenced by surveys indicating 83% of MFI graduates remain clean and sober six months after leaving the treatment environment.
Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn't spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).
Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic treatment facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic treatment is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.
The 12 step recovery program provides clients with an introduction to the steps as a part of treatment in both inpatient and outpatient programs. MFI Recovery Center drug addiction therapy programs help clients reach their goals of achieving and maintaining sobriety. The 12 step program has a long history of helping addicts and alcoholics regain control of their lives, and they are dedicated to providing their clients with the most effective tools available. The effects of substance abuse can ripple into many areas of an individual’s life, damaging relationships, disrupting performance at school or work, and diminishing the value of important interests or goals. The 12 Steps are a method of examining the ways in which a person who abuses substances uses drugs and alcohol to escape confronting difficult and challenging situations and feelings. By providing a very open spiritual framework as support, the Steps bring an individual face-to-face with these difficulties and challenges while providing workable, effective solutions.
Certain drug and alcohol rehabs have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person's specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.
