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 (KUSI) – The U.S. is projected to top a million drug overdose deaths since they began collecting data over 20 years ago.

That is about 930,000 deaths since 1999 and drugs like fentanyl are only contributing to this ongoing problem.

Scott Silverman, Your Crisis Coach, joined KUSI’s Hunter Sowards on “Good Evening San Diego” to discuss the nationwide fentanyl crisis.

San Diego is home to a large amount of the country’s veteran population.

Scott H. Silverman recently joined KUSI’s Elizabeth Alvarez on Good Morning San Diego to discuss how his organization helps veterans and what can be done to get more San Diego veterans the help they could use.

Scott stressed that for veterans, asking for help is seen as a sign of weakness.  Addressing stigma is one of Scott's greatest endeavors, as it is crucial that those who need it feel like it is okay to ask for help. "Hope and help are available, but if you don’t ask for help, you won’t access it," Silverman says.

Scott H. Silverman recently appeared on America Trends to discuss the shocking death toll wrought by the Opioid Epidemic, and share thoughts about how we can make progress against this "pandemic within a pandemic."

His segment on August 11th, 2021 discussed his background and recovery and talked about how he approaches his work in helping those with a SUD by “meeting them where they are at” to reduce the stigma of addiction, which is a huge hurdle that we need to overcome as a society in order to make progress in the battle against the opioid epidemic.

Scott H. Silverman appeared on KOGO (AM 600),  "San Diego's Breaking News Station" to discuss the opioid epidemic, and the influence fentanyl has played in it.

As he usually does, Scott discussed the 240 people who overdose fatally every day in the United States. And as always, he reminds that there is hope and help available, urging anyone who is struggling with a substance use disorder, or cares about someone who may be, to get help.

Scott H Silverman's Happy Hour recently featured an episode with Summer Stephan, San Diego County's District Attorney.

Summer Stephan has devoted her life to protecting children and families, providing justice to the most vulnerable, and is a national leader in the fight against human trafficking and sexual exploitation. Summer is focused on advancing public safety through fair and equal justice, bringing solutions to complex issues with a unique data-driven, commonsense approach that works to address the root causes of certain crimes driven by mental illness and addiction.

Combined with Scott's expertise about the state of addiction in this country, the interview provides a fascinating glimpse into the issues that are affecting San Diegans (and all Americans).

"San Diego county has seen a significant increase in overdoses. According to the County Office of Communications, there were 457 fentanyl-related overdose deaths alone in 2020 across San Diego county, a 202% increase from 151 recorded deaths in 2019."

These are the kinds of insights that caused The East County Californian to write an article about Scott's efforts to educate and save lives.

“The prescription meds kids are taking, mixed with other toxins— the body doesn’t have the capacity for those combinations. There’s no science around that yet, there’s no longitudinal study for Lexapro with methamphetamine."

The article also talks about Scott's new book The Opioid Epidemic, which he says is “a roadmap for families to have conversations, build awareness." He wants people to be aware that

"young people can take something that looks like Xanax, a prescription-strength sedative thinking they are going to feel mellowed out for a few hours. Instead, he said, a pill that looks like Xanax might be laced with Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid that can be deadly when consumed with alcohol and is a major contributor to the opioid overdose rate."
