What Levels of Care are Available at Better Days?

Better Days can provide you with the support that you need to continue your journey to long-lasting sobriety no matter where you’re currently at in the process. We offer treatment plans at four different levels:

  • Detox
  • Residential treatment
  • PHP or IOP
  • And outpatient care

You’ll find an overview of each of these levels of care in the sections below.

Level 1: Medical Detox

Detox is the first step in the healing journey for everyone who’s struggled with substance abuse. It refers to the time in which your body purges itself of the drugs or alcohol in its systems and readjusts to functioning without them.

Medical detox is a detox that occurs under supervision in a medical facility as opposed to outside of one. This is generally thought of as the best way to begin your recovery process for a few good reasons.

First, detox tends to be the time in which a patient’s cravings are at their worst. If you’re detoxing in a medical facility, then you won’t be able to act on those cravings, even if you want to. This ensures that you make it to the next phase of your recovery without relapsing.

Detox is also when you’ll experience the most severe of your withdrawal symptoms. Some of these can be dangerous and even life-threatening. Being under medical supervision while you go through them will keep you safe and healthy.

Finally, medical detox programs may also prescribe medications that can reduce your withdrawal symptoms and cravings. This can make the entire detox process easier for you to go through.

Level 2: Residential Treatment

Residential treatment happens after detox. At this stage in the recovery process, you’re ready to begin treating the problems that led you to abuse drugs or alcohol in the first place. Here, you’ll spend time working with therapists and exploring the root nature of your substance abuse problems.

Once you’ve discovered why you felt compelled to use drugs or alcohol, your therapist will help you to address those problems. Together, you’ll come up with solutions that enable you to live a happier, healthier life without feeling the need to resort to substance abuse.

Residential treatment also includes a number of other opportunities for healing. For example, you’ll get to connect with other recovering addicts and learn from what they’ve gone through. You’ll also get to participate in group activities, holistic healing treatments, and other services that can help you turn the corner towards better days.

Level 3: PHP or IOP

Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) and intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are commonly completed after residential treatment. They provide a helpful middle ground between the restrictions of residential treatment and the freedom of full-on outpatient care.

Both PHPs and IOPs involve spending the bulk of your days at a treatment center, receiving much of the same care that you received during your residential rehab program. The difference is that these treatment plans allow you to go home at night. You’ll get to sleep in your bed while still receiving the therapy and holistic healing support that you need to continue working towards your long-term recovery goals.

Additionally, residential rehab requires patients to uproot their lives and live in a treatment center full-time for a month or longer. Some people simply aren’t able to do this because of obligations to their family or their jobs. PHPs and IOPs may replace residential treatment for these individuals.

Level 4: Outpatient Care

Outpatient care is the final step in your treatment plan. It’s when you’ll transition your healing back into the real world. You’ll get to go back to your job and will be free to spend the majority of your time however you’d like.

Most outpatient programs involve visiting a treatment center a few times a week. When you do, you’ll work with your therapist and perhaps participate in additional holistic healing workshops or group activities.

It’s crucial that you continue receiving some type of care at this phase of your recovery process. Although you will have made great progress to get to this point, your healing still won’t be complete. Instead, you’re very likely to encounter a number of temptations and challenging scenarios that threaten your recovery once you transition back into the real world.

Your therapist and the other types of support that you receive through outpatient care will help you manage all of this. You’ll be able to talk through your greatest challenges and develop targeted solutions to overcome them without interrupting your sobriety.

Which Level of Care is Right For Me?

Choosing your appropriate level of care requires understanding where you’re at in the recovery process. If you’re still using drugs or alcohol, then it’s best to start with medical detox to start your healing off on the right foot.

But if you’ve already spent some time living without drugs or alcohol, then you may be able to begin with residential treatment, a PHP, or an IOP immediately. Get in touch with us if you’d like some help with deciding which level of care is right for your needs.
