Intensive Outpatient Programs for Drug & Alcohol Addiction in South Carolina

Drug Rehabilitation offering Intensive Outpatient Treatment in South Carolina

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration directory website do list there are over 40 intensive outpatient centers operating within the state of South Carolina. Intensive outpatient facilities do not necessarily provide detox on site, as most do not have residential treatment attached to the program. Addicts will have to attend some type of detox prior to going to an intensive outpatient center. Detox can include either a medical detox facility or a traditional detox center. Each detox option will offer something different for the client, and the severity of the addiction will determine what detox is required.

Why can’t a person just stop using drugs or alcohol?

There is such a small percentage of addicts who can just stop using drugs and alcohol and move on with his or her life. In most cases, they end up returning to drugs because they do not have the necessary skills to maintain their sobriety. People cannot just stop using drugs because the physical and mental addiction becomes too strong, and addicts are pulled to the experience of the high and chasing the same high as when the first time they used drugs. The physical and mental addiction is what keeps a person on drugs, and is what keeps them continually using the same drugs.
