Alcohol rehab typically involves a range of therapies and treatments to help individuals overcome their addiction to alcohol. Depending on the severity of the addiction and the individual’s needs, rehab can take place on an inpatient or outpatient basis.
Inpatient rehab involves living at a treatment facility for a period of time, usually ranging from a few weeks to a few months, and receiving around-the-clock care and support from medical and mental health professionals. Outpatient rehab involves attending treatment sessions on a regular basis while still living at home and going about daily life.
Both types of rehab may involve individual and group therapy, support groups, medication-assisted treatment, behavioral therapies, and other interventions aimed at helping individuals learn to manage their addiction and achieve long-term recovery. The specific approach to treatment may vary depending on the individual’s needs and the treatment facility’s philosophy.
