Inpatient Rehab

Inpatient facilities provide a place to live, meals, and on-site treatment options. Inpatient programs are more highly structured and relatively intensive when compared to many outpatient options.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. Medications used in MAT are approved by the FDA and MAT programs are clinically driven and tailored to meet each patient’s needs.

Outpatient Rehab

An outpatient facility provides treatment while patients continue to live in their own homes and keep their work or school routines. This option is less of an interference in someone’s daily schedule.

How It Works

Inpatient facilities provide a place to live, meals, and on-site treatment options. They are more highly structured and relatively intensive when compared to outpatient options.

Many patients benefit from the 24-hour support and treatment and the separation from their previous drug-using environment and friends. Inpatient is often the appropriate setting for someone with:

  • A severe opioid addiction.
  • An addiction to more than one drug.
  • Previous opioid withdrawal or detox experiences.
  • A co-occurring mental health disorder, such as anxiety or depression.
  • A co-occurring medical condition.
  • A medical concern or special circumstance, such as pregnancy.
  • A history of treatment noncompliance.

You may enter an inpatient rehab after completing detox or detox may be incorporated into the start of an inpatient program. It’s important that you do your research before picking a treatment facility so that you can ensure you receive the comprehensive care necessary to help you quit abusing opioids.

You may receive opioid detox medications, such as methadone or buprenorphine (alone, or in combination with naloxone as Suboxone). These medications help to curb opioid cravings and mitigate unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.

Outpatient Programs

How It Works

An outpatient opiate rehab facility provides treatment while patients continue to live in their own homes and keep their work or school routines. This option is less of an interference in someone’s daily schedule than inpatient. There are several different levels of outpatient treatment, ranging from a couple of hours per week to several hours per day.

For instance, standard outpatient treatment often occurs in a clinic or doctor’s office setting and the patient and provider may meet 1-2 times per week, for 1-2 hours each session. Alternatively, partial hospitalization programs, or day treatment programs, involve meetings 5-7 days per week, for many hours per session. It all depends on your specific treatment needs. People who may benefit from outpatient treatment include:

  • Those with a sober and strong support system.
  • Those with reliable transportation to the facility.
  • Those with relatively mild addictions.
  • Those with little to no risk of experiencing severe withdrawal.
  • Those who have already completed inpatient rehab and want step-down treatment.

What matters most is that you find professional treatment to help you recover from your opiate addiction and live a happier and healthier life.

North Charleston, SC 29420

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) includes a diverse array of programming. All clients enrolled in this service are asked to invite their chosen family to Multiple Family Group Therapy (MFGT). Clients are also required to participate in Individual Therapy at a mutually agreed upon time. IOP is primarily accomplished through process groups, education groups, skills building groups, and peer support. This programming is tailored both to the needs of the individual and to larger groups in order to provide insight into the disease of addiction, the process of recovery, and the skills necessary to manage thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that impede recovery. We want to collaborate, encourage, and support a changed lifestyle, fully independent from substance use.
