What are Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation and Education Centres ?
Alcohol and drug addiction is a disease that progresses through many stages. It needs a trained health professional, preferable someone specializing in addiction medicine, to make an accurate diagnosis and prescribe the most appropriate treatment.
A drug rehabilitation treatment center should offer a variety of treatment programs that meet individual needs.
Programs may include inpatient, residential, outpatient, and/or short-stay options.
The difference between inpatient and a residential treatment center is that inpatient services are provided by a licensed hospital, while residential programs usually do not meet the same rigorous standards of medical care.
The length of stay depends on the severity and stage of the disease.
