Exploring Different Levels of Care for Detox

At Aware Recovery Care, we understand that seeking detox services is a crucial step towards reclaiming your life from substance use disorders. In this article, we’ll explore the key differences between outpatient, inpatient, and residential levels of care for detox services.

Exploring Outpatient, Inpatient, and Residential Levels of Care for Detox Services

Outpatient Level of Care for Detox:

Outpatient detox is designed for individuals who have a stable support system at home and can safely manage their withdrawal symptoms without 24/7 medical supervision. Key features of outpatient detox include:

  • Flexibility: Outpatient detox allows you to continue with your daily responsibilities such as work, school, or family obligations while receiving medical treatment. With Aware Recovery Care’s virtual detox program, you can attend scheduled virtual medical appointments built around your schedule with our trained professionals from the comfort of your home.

  • Regular Check-ins: During outpatient virtual detox with Aware Recovery Care, you will have regular virtual appointments. Our trained medical professionals will monitor your progress, adjust medications as necessary, and provide ongoing support to you and your loved ones as you navigate through the detox process.

  • Support Network: Outpatient detox encourages you to rely on your existing support network, including family, friends, or local support groups. This level of care emphasizes the importance of building a strong foundation of long term people support to enhance your recovery journey.

  • Eligibility: If you are under the age of 65 and do not have a history of intensive care unit (ICU) admissions for detox, outpatient virtual detox at Aware Recovery Care could be right for you!

Inpatient Level of Care for Detox:

Inpatient detox is suitable for individuals who require a higher level of medical monitoring and support during the withdrawal process. Key features of inpatient detox include:

  • 24/7 Medical Supervision: Inpatient detox involves staying at a hospital facility, where a dedicated team of medical professionals will closely monitor your withdrawal symptoms, administer medications, and provide round-the-clock support. This level of care ensures that you are under constant supervision during the entire detoxification process.
  • Eligibility: Inpatient level of care is necessary for folks who have had previous intensive care unit (ICU) admissions for detox, who live alone without any support, who have pre-existing significant medical illness, or who are of advanced age.

Residential Level of Care for Detox:

Residential detox is a comprehensive program that combines the intensive medical supervision of inpatient detox with longer-term therapeutic interventions. Key features of residential detox include:

  • Extended Treatment Duration: Residential detox typically lasts several weeks to several months, providing a more comprehensive approach to detoxification and recovery. This lengthier treatment period allows for a more in-depth exploration of underlying issues and facilitates a more sustainable transition into a substance-free life.
  • Holistic Treatment: In addition to medical care, residential detox may incorporate a range of evidence-based therapies, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness practices, and experiential therapies. These holistic approaches address various aspects of your well-being, including mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions.
  • Continued Support: Following detox, residential programs often offer continued support to help you maintain your recovery progress. This may include transitional housing, outpatient treatment, or aftercare planning tailored to your specific needs. The goal is to provide ongoing support and resources as you transition back into your daily life.
