Home » Blogs » What Are Day Drug Treatment Centers?

There are many reasons why people may be reluctant to get addiction treatment, but one thing that many fear is that they will have to put their lives on hold. If they check themselves into a 24/7 clinic, they will have to take off work and be away from their families. People that have these concerns may be best off checking themselves into day drug treatment centers. 

Read on to find more about what day drug treatment centers have to offer. 

Are There Day Drug Treatment Centers? 

Yes, there are many addiction centers that offer day treatment throughout the United States.

Types of Day Drug Treatment Centers

Day drug treatment centers typically offer three types of care, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient treatment and outpatient treatment. Here’s what you can expect from each. 

Partial Hospitalization

This option requires the patient to be in treatment for addiction for about six hours a day, usually between 9 AM and 3 PM. During their stay, they will undergo therapy. Therapy treatments may vary and will be customized to suit the patient’s specific needs. Ultimately, they will aim to target the underlying cause of addiction and find healthy coping mechanisms to replace the urge to use. 

Partial hospitalization may also involve detox. This involves the body processing out toxic substances. During this time, patients may experience withdrawal symptoms that make them want to go back to using. An outpatient clinic will provide medical staff to see to it that the patient is as comfortable as possible to reduce the risk of relapse. 

Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment is similar to partial hospitalization, but the patient won’t need to spend as much time at the facility. At the intensive outpatient stage, patients may be going for several sessions per week. Outpatient treatment may require as little as one or two sessions a week. 

It is not uncommon for patients to start treatment with partial hospitalization. As symptoms improve, they may graduate to an intensive outpatient program and finally work their way to outpatient treatment.  

Who Should Go to a Day Drug Treatment Center?

A day drug treatment program is ideal for anyone looking to overcome addiction but needs to continue working and caring for their children. It will work best if patients have a stable home life. If the person lives in an unsafe environment with people who are abusive and/or use drugs, they will be better off going with an inpatient program. 

Day drug treatment centers are also good for someone who has completed an inpatient program and is looking to continue addiction treatment.
