Inpatient addiction treatment programs offer the highest level of care, with medical and psychiatric doctors and addiction specialists providing a wide spectrum of services. The individual will reside at the treatment facility for a certain period of time, typically one to six months, with medical detox available on site at the outset of the treatment program. In addition to the severity of the addiction, factors such as a co-occurring mood disorder and the individual’s insurance benefits and financial means will determine the length of stay.
Each incoming patient will undergo a comprehensive intake interview and assessment to provide the specific information that will help create an individualized treatment plan. After drug and alcohol detox and withdrawal is complete, active treatment commences, where days are highly structured around various therapy sessions, classes, meetings, guest speakers, and recreational activities.
While luxury inpatient programs offer the high-end resort style accommodations, amenities, and services, most basic inpatient treatment programs likely include:
- Individual therapy sessions
- Group therapy sessions
- Addiction education and relapse prevention
- Family counseling
- Psychiatrist Appointments
- Recovery group meetings, such as 12-step or non 12-step programs
- Supplemental holistic therapeutic activities, such as yoga, art and music therapy, guided meditation, exercise
Outpatient addiction treatment programs offer many of the same programming as inpatient, but allow the individual to remain in their own home during treatment. Outpatient programs provide the flexibility for participants in recovery to continue to work at their jobs, go to school, or continue fulfilling daily parenting responsibilities. The patient must first be detoxed from the substance of abuse before starting the outpatient program, so admitting to a detox facility may be needed prior to treatment. There are a variety of outpatient treatment programs, including some at the higher end of the cost range that offer additional services, such as transportation, legal support, holistic therapies, and more.
As with inpatient programs, individuals are thoroughly evaluated and a tailored treatment plan is created which will determine the level of participation in the program. Outpatient programs may range from minimal participation, such as when an individual who has completed an inpatient program needs a few hours of ongoing counseling each week, to intensive outpatient programs (IOP) that initially require upwards of 25-30 hours of participation per week.
Basic outpatient rehab programs include:
- Individual Counseling
- Group Therapy Sessions
- Addiction education and relapse prevention
- Recovery group meetings, such as 12 step or non 12 step programs
- Life skills classes
- Medication Monitoring and Management
- Random Drug and Alcohol Testing
Dual Diagnosis Oregon Treatment Programs
There is a common connection between mental health disorders and substance use disorders, and they often present as co-occurring conditions, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, among other mental health conditions. In these cases, the dual diagnosis patient will need to be treated for both the substance use and mental health disorders in order to achieve a successful treatment outcome. Dual diagnosis treatment programs feature the necessary professional expertise to treat patients presenting with both types of disorders, such as a psychiatrist and a medical doctor who specializes in addiction, in addition to the clinical treatment staff.

Mental Health Treatment Facilities
For the individual in crisis, referred to as a psychotic break, an inpatient psychiatric facility or hospital is the necessary level of care for stabilizing symptoms of psychosis, including hallucinations or delusions, and/or suicidal or violent behavior. A comprehensive psych evaluation and medical examination will help the mental health professionals determine the best pharmacological treatment and psychotherapy to safely stabilize and treat the patient. A psych hospital will closely monitor the patient, sometimes confining them until the crisis lessens.
Because of the wide range of mental health treatment programs, selecting one that best meets your needs with the appropriate level of care. There are outpatient and inpatient or residential mental health facilities available in a variety of settings, such as a hospital, a designated treatment center, a home, or a therapeutic farm.
The mental health disorders treated generally include:
- Anxiety spectrum: generalized anxiety disorder, PTSD, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder
- Eating disorders
- Bipolar disorder
To treat a mental health or personality disorder the mental health facility will utilize various psychotherapies based on the disorder, psychotropic medications, and group therapy sessions. Intrinsic to treating a mental health disorder is teaching coping skills, relaxation techniques, and anger management, giving the individual the tools to improve their quality of life. Most mental health programs also offer additional therapeutic activities, such as yoga, meditation, massage therapy, acupuncture, equine therapy, music and art therapy.
