Which type of rehab do you find to be more helpful to you, inpatient or outpatient? I can see the benefits of both types of rehabilitation programs. Inpatient treatment allows you to recover with 24/7 support and does not allow you access to your drug of choice. I could find this very helpful especially if your detox needs to be medically supervised. The biggest problem I see with this treatment, however, is that once the program ends, you will be exposed to all of your triggers and the stress of daily life again. You will also gain access to those drugs again and face temptation immediately upon release. Outpatient treatment, however, could allow you to remain in your environment and recover while you are still exposed to triggers and stress. I think that the coping strategies you employ will be much more effective if you are able to remain in your typical environment. Which type of rehabilitation program would you recommend?
