Inpatient vs. Outpatient Treatment

Once you decide to treat your addiction, you can either get treatment at a remote treatment facility (Inpatient or Residential Treatment) or at a medical office (Outpatient Treatment). At this initial level, the difference is that outpatient programs allow patients to come into a medical/counseling treatment center and then leave the same day. Inpatient programs, sometimes referred to as residential treatment programs, allow patients to visit a hospital or remote location for an extended period of time.
