Alcohol Abuse Treatment

Getting treatment for alcohol addiction can change a life, whether the life of someone you love or your own. It can be difficult to figure out which kind of alcohol abuse treatment suits you or your loved one best, especially if you’ve never sought out treatment before. Even if you have been treated before but feel the program failed, you or your loved one just might not have had the right alcohol abuse treatment. At, we’re your lifeline to finding the treatment that will work for you or someone you love.

Alcohol Abuse Rehab: Inpatient vs. Outpatient

There are two primary options you have when selecting treatment for alcohol abuse. We’d like to know your or your loved one’s preference—although we may recommend another form of treatment. We base our recommendations on the individual factors that make up an alcoholic’s addiction. Some people are going to benefit more from one type of alcohol abuse rehabilitation and others will benefit more from the other type.

The separate benefits of both inpatient and outpatient addiction therapy are as follows:

Inpatient: Inpatient alcohol rehab allows addicts to fully devote themselves to recovery. Some addicts really only thrive in a full-time recovery environment, where they’re free from temptation and the stresses of back home.

Outpatient: Outpatient alcohol rehab allows addicts to return home to their normal lives between treatment sessions. This option is best for those who are still functional and still need to meet work, school and family responsibilities.

Other Alcohol Abuse Rehabilitation Options

Inpatient and outpatient are not the only labels to describe different alcohol abuse rehab programs. There are a number of other factors to consider, including:

  • Medicated versus non-medicated programs
  • Private therapy versus group therapy
  • Putting faith in a higher power for recovery versus taking it upon themselves to recover
  • Alternative therapies versus traditional therapies
  • Educational and therapeutic benefits of the programs
  • Long-term success rates

Before we make a recommendation, our team of addiction placement counselors thoroughly gathers information about each individual. We ask you to explain your or your loved one’s struggles with addiction in detail, as well as any past or present treatment plans you or they have tried. Taking into account the alcoholic’s individual health and alcoholism history, as well as their preferences and dislikes when it comes to treatment, we make the most suitable recommendation. If you or your loved one do not have any preferences because you’ve never had any treatment experience, we can help; all you have to do is call.
