If you aren’t a danger to yourself or others, and you can stay sober when you go home, other types of rehab may be a better fit for you.
Partial hospitalization or day treatment is where you live at home, but you go for treatment at a hospital or clinic at least 5 days a week. Recently, with COVID-19 precautions, many programs offer programs via telehealth. It can be an alternative to inpatient or residential treatment, or a step-down from one of those programs.
Intensive outpatient treatment involves a scheduled series of visits that are longer and more in-depth than a traditional outpatient program. You may do this after partial hospitalization, detox, or residential rehab. It can also be a way to prevent the need for those services.
