Detox options include inpatient medical detox programs and conventional detox services. Medical detox manages most opioid addiction, whereas traditional detox treats street drug addiction. Following detox, the next step with treatment is inpatient or outpatient drug rehab. Residential drug treatment is the better option, especially for addicts with a long history of addiction and chronic relapse issues. Outpatient drug rehab is effective, but most people attending these programs are still working and have family responsibility they cannot be away from. The rehabilitation process should help a person physically, psychologically, and even spiritually if it is a faith-based program. Aftercare is also recommended, and this would include 12-step programs, peer support, and or a sober living home. It is a good idea to remain connected to other sober people following residential drug rehab.
