Essentially all substance abuse treatment programs in Columbus can be broken down into four main categories which include two types of inpatient treatment, short-term inpatient and long-term residential. There are two other categories that consist of medical detoxification programs and outpatient programs. Inpatient drug treatment programs offer drug users the most intensive care and the lengthiest drug treatment programs that are available. The main difference between these four categories is simply the length of each program as well as the level of care provided at each. Long-term residential treatment offers the highest level of care available for drug treatment programs with programs ranging in length from three months to one year depending on the program. Inpatient treatment programs typically offer patients assistance through the withdrawal process to ensure that they safely withdrawal from the drugs or alcohol they were using which is then followed up with some form of counseling or assistance with the mental and emotional aspect of the addiction. Outpatient drug treatment in Columbus is typically for patients that have already completed an inpatient program and need additional care to ensure continued sobriety. These programs also target those who cannot enroll in an inpatient program due to personal issues that prevent them from staying at a treatment program. Medical detoxification programs offer drug users assistance during the withdrawal from drugs or alcohol. There are many negative and potentially life-threatening side effects to drug withdrawal and these programs assist clients with getting off the substances safely and successfully. The program is roughly one to two weeks in length depending on which drugs the patient is withdrawing from among many other factors. Regardless of the type of program that is chosen, it is important to end your addiction immediately with the help of one of the drug rehabilitation programs in Columbus.
