There are two major types of substance abuse treatment in Pittsburgh: inpatient & outpatient. Within these two groups and aside from them there are many types of drug treatment however these are the most common types. Outpatient treatment allows drug users to continue handling their responsibilities while receiving treatment once or twice a week. They will continue to live at home, work, and do all the other things they normally do, excluding drug use. This option of treatment does leave room for continued drug use and less accountability. Inpatient treatment is a more intense and hands-on form of treatment where the patient will stay at the facility until they have completed the program. These programs allow ample time and counseling to address the issues needed to be handled. Do not wait to make the changes needed to change your life and end your addiction.
