Inpatient vs Outpatient Therapy – Which is right for you?
Before entering addiction treatment, it is important that you discuss the difference between inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation with an addiction expert to find out which option is best for you.
Inpatient addiction care involves simultaneous housing and therapy at a residential rehab facility, typically for a minimum duration of 28 days. Inpatient counselling provides an environment free from the stresses and triggers of daily life in addition to round-the-clock care from a team of addiction specialists. Inpatient care allows clients to fully immerse themselves in the recovery process and offers the best chance of lasting recovery.
Outpatient therapy, like that provided at The Cabin Bangkok, allows clients the opportunity to attend counselling while continuing to live in their own homes and maintain their normal schedules. Outpatient care is best suited for clients who are considered ‘high functioning addicts’. These individuals do not require medically supervised detox nor do their current environments pose too many obstacles to recovery. Outpatient addiction centres offer much of the same care provided at residential facilities without requiring clients to take leave from work or personal responsibilities.
For some of our clients, the ideal therapy strategy involves a combination of both inpatient and outpatient care. For these individuals, therapy will begin at one of our internationally recognised inpatient facilities and will eventually be ‘stepped down’ to continued care at one of our outpatient centres.
Each individual case of addiction is unique, which is why it is important to see a qualified addiction expert for a thorough assessment prior to choosing between inpatient or outpatient care. The Cabin Bangkok offers comprehensive and confidential assessments to help determine which form of counselling is best for you.
