Understanding Rehab

You hear the word “rehab” a lot. Think of rehab like a broad umbrella. It covers a wide variety of options for treatment. Your situation will determine what kind of treatment you need. Long Islands Rehabs desires recovery for all our clients. But we recognize that no two clients have the same recovery journey. “Rehab” gives us a shortened form of the word “rehabilitation.” Rehabilitation involves changing. Transitioning into something new and different. Something better.

To that end, Long Island Rehabs understands that treatment options must suit a client’s specific needs. We tailor the treatment plan to fit the client. Not the other way around. Which treatment option do you think will work best for you?

Partial Hospitalization (PHP)

Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) represent the most intensive level of treatment. We refer to it as “partial” because clients do not reside within a treatment facility. Instead, a client lives in a sober living house (SLH). Treatment begins in the morning and may last from 5-7 hours. A client will receive medication management and work with a counselor to put a proper treatment plan in place.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) represent a step down from PHP. Those who complete PHP may transition into this level of care. Or, a client’s situation may not require a stringent program like PHP. Therefore, IOP might suit them better. Treatment days last roughly 3-4 hours. As needed, clients may also reside in a sober living house (SLH).

Outpatient Programs (OP)

Outpatient programs (OP) give clients the greatest amount of freedom. In OP, clients have a great deal of authority and discretion. This kind of responsibility gives them an opportunity to implement and practice significant changes. OP might include one-on-one sessions with a therapist or group therapy. Aftercare programs, like support groups, can also help.

The Difference Between Rehab and Outpatient Detox Programs

Rehab and detox have a connection. But we must not think of these words as synonyms. They indicate separate and distinct pieces of the recovery process. “Detox,” short for “detoxification” often initiates one’s recovery.  Outpatient detox programs involve helping the body ridding itself of toxins. A person in detox experiences withdrawal symptoms. In some circumstances, detox may necessitate medical attention.

What To Expect In Rehab

Entering rehab shifts one’s life. It changes how one operates from day-to-day. Rehab programs require clients to maintain a schedule. Clients in rehab must attend specified events at preset times. Even seasoned clients sometimes have trouble accepting these realities. Therefore, new clients must expect this sense of order. Order helps those in recovery establish balance. Routine lets a client know what happens and when.

Acceptance And Commitment

A client may enroll in the best recovery program in the world. But that program will only succeed with the cooperation of the client. The client must participate in their own recovery. They must accept, and remain open to, change. A client must actively engage with recovery. They must decide to commit wholly to new ways of thinking and living. The greater the commitment, the greater the likelihood of sustained recovery.

Important Things to Remember When Coming To Rehab

Rehab means reorienting one’s life. It demands moving out of one’s comfort zone. To rehabilitate, one must assume a posture of “teachability”. One has to receive one’s new schedule and adhere to one’s treatment guidelines. Do not think of rehab as easy. One ought not to think of rehab as a vacation. It takes an investment of thought, time, and energy.

Work The Program, And The Program Will Work

To aid your recovery, your treatment providers may prescribe you medication. Take your medication as prescribed. Stick to any recommendations your providers make. They may suggest changes to your habits, living situation, nutrition, or fitness. Implement those changes and adhere to them. Remain flexible and stay dedicated to your recovery.
