Types of Addiction Treatment in MA

The level of addiction treatment that a person may need often depends on several factors, ranging from how much time they are able to give to their recovery to the severity of their substance use disorder. When looking for professional help, consider the following types of addiction treatment:

  • Inpatient treatment. In inpatient treatment, patients reside within the facility throughout their entire recovery process. During that time, they can benefit from regular support, medical supervision, and rehabilitative care that can help prevent relapse and promote recovery.2
  • Day treatment. This particular addiction treatment requires at least 20 hours per week of structured programming. Unlike inpatient treatment, overnight stays are not mandatory for , allowing patients to continue living at home during their recovery.3
  • Intensive outpatient programs (IOP). IOPs are designed to help provide ongoing care, including addiction, recovery, and relapse education. Patients can learn how to cope with their substance use disorder and make positive changes in an IOP while continuing to live at home.3
  • Outpatient treatment. Standard outpatient treatment requires patients to spend time working on their recovery at the facility, but not as much time or intensity per week as what would be expected in day treatment or an IOP.3
Every person’s path to recovery is unique. Your provider can help you determine what type of treatment may be best for you, which may or may not include the above treatments.
