While inpatient treatment is appropriate for some who have severe addictions, new medications and treatment plans are allowing physicians to treat numerous patients successfully using only outpatient options. Although some patients swear by the care that they receive in the inpatient setting, most patients cannot afford this high level of care and do not like to give up the freedom that they have living at home while attending rehab. In addition, patients in the outpatient setting are typically able to hold down their jobs and are able to see their family every day following treatment.
Addiction Recovery at Adelanto Outpatient Centers
Adelanto outpatient treatment is quite rigorous for those who have become addicted to drugs and alcohol. Patients often spend up to eight hours per day in the initial stages of treatment although they may not need to spend this much time at the facility later in the treatment plan. Many patients are also required to attend detox in order to get the medications that they need for recovery.

Some patients may only need to take these medications for a short time. Others may take them for the rest of their lives.[/su_note]
Adelanto Drug Abuse Therapy & Treatment
One of the biggest parts of an Adelanto outpatient detox treatment plan is group therapy. Patients who are in group therapy will get to experience healing with their peers in educational sessions as well as in sessions when they get to use their creative talents or their energies for healing. For example, some patients may use music or art therapy to heal while others will perform outdoor challenges with their peers or may learn martial arts. Recovering addicts who deal with anger may find help with anger management therapy under the guidance of a licensed counselor.

Upon an initial consultation, Dr. Matney will perform a basic physical and will find out where the patient is at both physically and mentally. He will then recommend a treatment plan that is uniquely designed for the individual. Following detox, the staff will provide information about follow-up therapy, such as a 12-step program or community support group.[/su_note][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
