5 Major Differences Between California Outpatient Rehab and Inpatient Rehab

Passages offers leading California outpatient rehab and inpatient rehab options. Both work well and operate under the same basic principles of holistic compassion, but which one is right for you? Let’s take a look at the many differences between Southern California outpatient rehab and inpatient rehab with Passages.

California Outpatient Rehab

Outpatient rehab is where you can leave after receiving a checkup and treatment for the day. You are free to do whatever you want as long as you follow a simple schedule of meetups with clinicians. Whether you have a family or a career to tend to (or maybe if you just don’t feel like living somewhere else 24/7), our outpatient rehab center does not make you put the rest of your life on hold while getting help.

California Inpatient Rehab

Passages goes to great lengths to keep you as involved with your family and friends as possible while living on the campus with constant communications, therapy sessions and frequent visits. However, you are not allowed to leave the facility without permission. Trips outside may be supervised or unsupervised depending on your situational progress.

Similarities Between California Outpatient Rehab and Inpatient Rehab

Inpatient or outpatient, all of our facilities rely on trained professionals of the highest level to provide excellent one-on-one and group therapy treatments. Both inpatient and outpatient rehab centers have a dedicated Treatment Team of physicians, doctors, nurses, therapists, counselors and other specialists who will skillfully develop a customized Treatment Program with your needs in mind.

Is California Outpatient Rehab Right for You?

Outpatient rehab with Passages is a safe way to detoxify and heal your mind, body and soul. Here are the most popular aspects of outpatient rehab:

  • Less Expensive – Clients do not have to pay for housing or around-the-clock care, which lowers the overall cost of treatment.
  • Personal Life – Clients can still tend to their families, careers and education while receiving treatment. Other goals will not have to be stalled in lieu of treatment.
  • Family and Friends – Going home every day means you can gain the emotional support of your family and friends.

However, sometimes clients prefer inpatient rehab to avoid:

  • Temptation – Returning to your home can be a trigger to relapse depending on the environment. Unhealthy personal contacts are also still available, too.
  • No 24/7 Treatment – Some clients need more care than others. When you are at home, you are not surrounded by your personal Treatment Team.

Try California Outpatient Rehab with Passages

Before deciding on inpatient or outpatient rehab, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are drugs and alcohol readily available in your home environment? If so, a residential rehab facility may be much more effective.
  • Are those around you supportive of your sobriety? If so, going home to your own familiar support network may make outpatient rehab the best option.
  • Can you afford to leave your place of work, school, or personal responsibilities for an extended period of time? If not, then outpatient rehab may be the only way to effectively get help.
