What is Residential Rehab?

Rehabilitation in a residential setting is referred to as Residential Rehab. In residential rehab, patients reside in a facility more reminiscent of a home for the length of their treatment. Treatments can vary anywhere in length from 30, 60 to 90 days or more. (Duration of stay can be shorter or long depending on the type of addiction, as well as co-occurring dependency on other addictions or coinciding mental health disorders).
Duration of stay is wholly dependent on how well the Client is doing during their stay in rehabilitation. Our treatment of co-occurring mental health disorders are also a factor in length of stay.

In many situations, treatment will start with detoxification (detox) before the more formal treatment begins. Detox is the expelling process of the body from harmful toxins and addictive substances like alcohol and/or drugs. There can be many side effects to detox, such as nausea, vomiting, muscle aches and much more Cliffside Malibu has on- staff and addictionologist board certified to help keep you comfortable during the detox process. . Following the detoxification, typical treatments can include group therapy, counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy and training in relapse prevention. This is all done under the roof of the residential rehab, which allows for a much more immersive and focused experience, removing you from the temptations that you might be used to at home. It is also not uncommon to travel to a different state far away from home to attend residential rehab, as to completely remove and “reset” yourself.

What is Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)?

PHP (Partial Hospitalization Program) can sometimes be referred to as day rehab. It allows someone seeking treatment to have the intensity of residential recovery programs, but to return to their own home at night. It has many of the same components of inpatient full-time residential programs, and can sometimes be just as effective for the right person.
PHP is the middle ground between full-time in-patient care and an outpatient program. The patient will spend several hours every day going over standard treatments and programs to help with their detox process and recovery. At the end of the day, they then return to their own homes and will return back to the program the next day.
Some of these programs can include individual and group therapy, family therapy, music and art therapy, as well as support groups and counseling.

What is Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)?

IOP (intensive outpatient treatment) may be recommended for people who don’t need a medically supervised detox (detoxification), and following a clinical and medical assessment it may or may not be the primary recommendation for rehab. This form of program allows for people to participate in recovery while accommodating family and work life.

It enables patients to rebuild their personal life and repair family ties, while still participating in the intensive treatments. This can help to create the foundation for a long term recovery, as they build support in their community and regular environments.

With the important initial clinical assessment, it will assess the viability of the IOP program to your needs. You will also receive counseling towards choosing the right steps forward in your recovery.

Choosing what treatment is right for you

Choosing the right setting of for your rehabilitation is one of the most important decisions you and your loved ones can make for your recovery. If you are unsure as to what might be right for you, it is important that you have an assessment and thoroughly weigh the options to see what could work best for you in the long term. You’ll have an opportunity to have a customized assessment and a clearer picture of what will best facilitate your recovery to compare and summarize the differences between these types of rehab. While it might sound like a good idea to continue with work and stay at home while getting recovery, you might need a more intensive treatment plan depending on the level of your addiction and vice-versa.
