In the majority of cases, residential inpatient treatment will last for between 30 and 90 days. Once you complete inpatient treatment you will traditionally move into a sober living home and continue with a lower level of clinical care, like partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient treatment.
Once you complete an extended stay in a residential inpatient treatment center, you will most likely transition into a sober house in Sussex County and continue with outpatient treatment. There are three main types of outpatient treatment: partial hospitalization (PHP), intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), and regular outpatient treatment (OP). PHP provides the highest level of care, and while clients are still able to return home in the evenings they typically attend treatment for between 5 and 7 days a week.
IOP is a step down from PHP, and offers more flexibility and personal freedom. Most IOP groups meet for between 3 and 5 days a week, either in the mornings or in the evenings depending on what works best with your schedule. If you work during the day, for example, a nighttime IOP group might be the best option. If you are attending night classes in pursuit of your GED, a morning IOP group might work best for you. Finally, OP offers the most flexible level of outpatient treatment, with groups meeting no more than 3 days a week for several hours each day. It is recommended a person transitions into a sober home in Sussex County, New Jersey as they continue with outpatient care.
