Residential Treatment After Detox
At Princeton Detox & Recovery Center we recommend following a multi-phased continuum of care as closely as possible. Recommended stages of treatment almost always include:
Residential treatment is an important part of the treatment process. In residential treatment you undergo intensive individual, group and family therapy, develop relapse prevention techniques and healthy coping mechanisms, and work through any underlying issues which might have contributed to the development of addiction. As part of the Guardian Recovery Network we work directly with several residential treatment centers across the country.
Outpatient Treatment After Detox
A client might opt to transition directly into outpatient care after detox. Residential treatment or partial hospitalization are always recommended, though outpatient treatment might be a viable standalone option if:
- You are the sole caretaker of one or more dependents, or you have other family-related obligations you cannot step away from for weeks at a time.
- You have a job or career you cannot step away from for a prolonged period of time.
- You are currently enrolled in school and you cannot easily take a leave of absence to attend residential treatment.
- You are uninsured and you cannot afford to cover the cost of residential treatment or PHP out-of-pocket.
- You were sober for a long period of time and recently experienced a brief return to substance use.
- You are suffering from a mild substance use disorder and no underlying issues.
Outpatient treatment — which might include intensive outpatient (IOP) or outpatient (OP) treatment — is certainly better than no follow-up care at all. We work closely with several reputable outpatient programs in New Jersey and surrounding areas, and we are always happy to point you in the right direction.
