Types of Alcohol Rehab Facilities

 

Rehab facilities may vary but they all share a common aim and that is to help addicts recover from their addiction. Many facilities today concentrate on detoxification. The process can be done in a hospital in which a minimum of 10 days is required for the personnel to totally free the person from alcoholic elements. Although hospitals can accommodate this, the danger of withdrawal can harm other patients that is why it is recommended that detoxification is done in a rehab facility that can fully supply and facilitate the safety of the patient and the people around him

 

Alcoholics can still undergo treatment without confining themselves in a rehab center. Outpatient treatments are applicable to those who are less dependent on alcohol and the severity of their addiction is still containable. This is also applicable to those who have been in a facility and are deemed sober and alcohol free. Outpatients are closely monitored by rehab facility personnel assigned to them and are required to attend counseling on schedule.

 

Inpatient treatment is applicable to those who have severe alcohol dependency. It is required to be able to monitor them 24 hours a day and induce medical treatment whenever needed. Inpatients are considered totally dependent of alcohol and needs close monitoring. This is also to give immediate help in situations such as relapse and intense urge to give in to their addiction.

 

Adolescent addiction rehab is a rehabilitation option that specializes in the treatment of adolescent patients. Treatment of younger generation on alcohol abuse is different from adults. The formulation of counseling techniques is more defined and requirements to help them become sober are more intense.

 

Faith based rehabilitation refers to the patient’s willingness to enter a facility out of his faith on himself and his ability to fully cooperate with the rehab personnel for the glory of freedom from alcoholism. It is similar to Christian alcohol rehabs which involve a great deal of counseling and help from support groups.

 

There are other forms of alcohol rehab facilities that offer more and even detailed process of leading an alcoholic person to sobriety. A person may choose according to his preferences and the severity of his addiction.
