There are several types of treatment available to those dealing with substance use disorder. It doesn’t always have to be the inpatient rehab you see on TV and in movies like 28 Days. In fact, a recent article by a local NBC network lists the most common types of drug treatment care in the United States.

Below you’ll find a summary of the different types of drug rehab from which you or a loved one can choose.

●     Inpatient treatment (hospital)

Six hundred fifty-eight facilities in the U.S. offer hospital inpatient treatment to drug addicts. This type of treatment requires you to stay in the hospital, under the care of a medical team, for a set number of days. It’s also the most expensive type of care for those with SUD.

●     Inpatient treatment (non-hospital)

Two thousand nine hundred seventy-two facilities offer long-term residential care, which means agreeing to 24/7 care for what could be several months. The longer you stay in a residential facility, the greater your chances of making a full recovery. However, it’s simply not possible for some people.

Short-term residential care offers the same services for a shorter period.

●     Detox care

Detox care can be performed in a few ways, including hospital, non-hospital, and outpatient. Hospital-assisted detox is offered at 784 facilities in the country. Again, it’s one of the more expensive routes to take, as detox overseen by hospital staff can cost up to $650 per day.

Detox in a non-hospital setting is often more realistic for those who don’t need intensive detox assistance. Non-hospital detox may occur in a separate facility or at home, but it’s still structured and overseen by medical professionals.

Outpatient detox care is the most common form of detox due to its flexibility and affordability.

●     Day treatment

More than 2,000 facilities offer day treatment programs for SUD. This type of treatment is structured and takes place in a hospital setting, but it doesn’t require 24/7 care.

●     Medication-assisted recovery

Methadone treatment is common for those recovering from opioid addiction. It helps with cravings as well as the shock to the system that can come with suddenly depriving your body of such a powerful substance. It is one of the most popular treatment options.

●     Outpatient care

Outpatient care remains the most popular type of rehab among those dealing with SUD. It is also the most readily available, with more than 7,000 facilities offering this therapy method across the country. Intensive outpatient care comes with more supervision, while basic outpatient care consists of counseling, meetings, and mindfulness practices.

SAN DIEGO, CA, March 31st

Addiction doesn’t take time off, and neither does Confidential Recovery, which is San Diego’s premier outpatient treatment program for substance use disorders. Confidential has also furthered its commitment to serving military veterans by contracting with TriWest.

Confidential Recovery  has long been helping first responders, healthcare providers, and working professionals overcome their struggles with substance abuse issues through their Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) Program.  The treatment program continues during the COViD-19 quarantine order. The IOP groups meet at night, allowing participants to stay working during the day.

Now Tri-West is welcoming Confidential Recovery as a Veterans Affairs Patient-Centered Community Care (VAPC3) provider. Tri-West is pleased to announce that they  “value Confidential Recovery’s participation and commitment to deliver healthcare services to the dedicated men and women who have served in the United States military”. Our veterans are a very vulnerable population, with many veterans self-medicating untreated PTSD with substances and compounding their problems.

Confidential Recovery’s staff includes veterans in recovery who can offer peer counseling and guidance as they lay a course for the recovery of their clients. With Tri-West, Confidential Recovery can now  serve even more of those who have served.

The White House just released a sobering report on the cost of the opioid crisis: $2.500,000,000,000 over four years.

Overdose deaths involving opioids are coming down during the Trump Administration, reversing the upward trend that has persisted since at least 1999.

Even with the decrease in opioid-related deaths under President Trump, the $696 billion cost in 2018 shows that this crisis is far from over.

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Your Crisis Coach, Scott Silverman joins KUSI to discuss the crisis of counterfeit drugs in San Diego.

From: November 10th, 2019. Watch the full video here.

Scott Silverman, Confidential Recovery CEO and Community Advocate for Substance Use Recovery recently completed a very in-depth interview with Mary Mulvihill, Ph.D for The San Diego Psychologist website.

Scott Silverman discusses his work in the community and his concerns about substance abuse and how it affects the populace of San Diego at large.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

 The big three substance use issues impacting San Diego currently are:

  1. Methamphetamine (meth) use: Local consumption of this highly destructive drug is at a 10-year high.

  2. Fentanyl from China, often disguised as OxyContin, along with other new synthetic drugs which are extremely dangerous, as we have no idea what is really in them. If effective at inducing a “high,” substance users tend to take more, hence putting themselves at high risk for dying from these drugs. Many of the substance-use fatalities are reported by medical examiners or morgues , rather than a medical facility, indicating sudden death. We may lose many more people to synthetic, possibly contaminated, drugs unless we get a grip on this quickly.

  3. Easier access to cannabis or unused prescription opiates: 264 million prescriptions for opiates were written last year, and many of them cannot be tracked down. With legalization of cannabis, we are seeing more kids overdosing, particularly with edibles. And then, there is the new issue of driving while high, which is hard to measure and control.

We recently came across an article on The Sober World about why outpatient and MAT is the future of addiction treatment.

As the article states:

The essence of this shift in thinking is based upon the fact that addictive disorders, particularly opioid use disorders, are theorized to be chronic relapsing conditions with compulsive drug seeking behaviors. Research has revealed anatomical differences in the brains of patients with opiate addiction; at the cellular level, neurons are damaged by chronic exposure to opiate drugs.
