Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody who needs to be safely managed through detox services when heavily addicted to drugs, or who requires a better spectrum of care such as somebody who has a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health solutions as part of their treatment process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions in terms of level of care, for the reason that individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to remain in a rehabilitation program while undergoing treatment services. Although this might appear ideal it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many individuals in rehab need to have a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must handle both disorders while in treatment in order to find resolution simply because one usually triggers the other. Fortunately, there are numerous drug rehabilitation programs who can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face in order to not only become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Persons With HIV/AIDS

Persons with HIV/AIDS who may need substance abuse treatment will frequently require services beyond what a standard drug and alcohol rehabilitation program will be able to provide. Due to the fact extensive medical services are often a vital part of the physical recovery process for addicts with HIV/AIDS, who more than likely have experienced a progression and worsening of the disease due to their habit, it is crucial that these clients get the medical treatment required along with any treatment services for their substance abuse problem.

Gays and Lesbians

It is essential that gays and lesbians obtain quality rehabilitation services in a rehab environment that is discreet and with treatment professionals at their disposal who understand the unique challenges that they can experience in life. Because drug use for gays and lesbians may also be triggered by the challenges they face due to their sexual preference, a facility which will help them handle these issues and give them the peace of mind that they've lacked prior to arriving in treatment can be a crucial part of treatment for gay and lesbian clients.
