Inpatient Treatment Centers Inpatient drug addiction treatment refers to a treatment center where patients reside at the facility and are subject to the center’s rules and regulations along with the highest level of accountability. There they will regularly attend addiction therapy sessions and therapy groups where they learn about their addiction, improve coping skills and connect with recovery support groups. They are also more closely monitored and are subject to regular drug screenings. Patients usually come to these centers immediately after leaving a detox facility. info@californiaprescriptionabusehelpline.com www.californiaprescriptionabusehelpline.com If you need help, please call our 24/7 Helpline (855) 738-2770


Outpatient Treatment Centers Outpatient treatment programs offer many of the same benefits of inpatient programs, except they allow patients more freedom. They provide therapy groups and individual sessions like residential programs except they allow the patient to reside outside of the facility, like a sober living facility or transitional living house.

Recovery Support Groups Recovery support groups require no dues or fees to attend and serve as a priceless resource for those seeking long term sobriety. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop their substance abuse. Millions have managed to achieve sobriety in recovery programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA). Both are 12-step based and provide their members with a healthy and conducive support group. Both are completely made up of other recovering alcoholics and addicts who share the same struggle in fighting addiction. California houses many other 12-step based groups that are derived from those that started with AA. info@californiaprescriptionabusehelpline.com www.californiaprescriptionabusehelpline.com If you need help, please call our 24/7 Helpline (855) 738-2770
