Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions in terms of intensity of care, since the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to stay in a rehabilitation center while receiving rehab services. Even if this may seem ideal it will not provide the required change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehabilitation need to have a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are recognized in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must address both disorders whilst in treatment in order to find resolution because one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are many drug and alcohol treatment facilities who can specifically address the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face to be able to not merely become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.
