Inpatient Versus Outpatient Care: How Gateway Clinicians Determine Which One Is Right for You

Are you ready to transform your life? Gateway Rehab offers comprehensive and highly personalized inpatient and outpatient services to help you overcome addiction, work toward restored health and renew your sense of self.

All it takes is a single phone call to begin your path toward recovery. After you speak with one of our highly skilled clinicians, he or she will make a confidential assessment and recommend the most appropriate treatment.

Inpatient versus outpatient care: Which one is right for you?

Drug and alcohol treatment programs generally fall into two categories: inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation. Inpatient rehab services are intensive, residential treatment programs designed to treat more serious addictions. Outpatient rehab services are part-time programs that allow those in recovery to continue working or attending school. Depending on your unique circumstances, including the severity of your addiction, our Gateway clinicians will help you determine which is best for you and your unique circumstance. Here are the main differences between inpatient versus outpatient care:

Inpatient care

Outpatient care

  • Those in recovery stay in the facility
  • Higher success rates, especially with long-term rehabilitation
  • Disrupts daily life
  • 24-hour medical and emotional support
  • Programs last between 28 days to six months
  • Designed to treat those with serious addictions
  • Eliminates distractions of daily life
  • Those in recovery continue to live at home, but commute to the facility for daily treatments
  • Maintains normal daily routine.
  • Accessible to social circle for support
  • Programs last between three months to one year
  • Designed to treat those with mild addiction
  • 10 to 12 hours of recovery support per week

At Gateway Rehab we believe recovery from the disease of addiction involves healing all dimensions of a person: physical, emotional, social and spiritual. Our skilled clinicians know there are many pathways to recovery, and we strive to individualize treatment so each person has an opportunity for sustainable recovery.
