Medically Supervised Detox Programs
In a detox program under medical supervision, whether in an inpatient or outpatient setting, you’ll have a safe place to handle the challenges of withdrawal.
This intervention provides medication and therapy to address the physical and psychological symptoms of withdrawal, including cravings and discomfort. Detox programs also provide supervision to protect you from withdrawal early in the treatment process.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment
With inpatient or residential care, you cannot fall back into old habits that make relapse more likely because you live at the facility. At treatment, your days are filled with different activities and therapies, including evidence-based behavioral therapy.
Inpatient treatment includes 24-hour supervision and support, as well as a daily schedule that’s structured around your needs. Many centers also offer art therapy, exercise therapy, religious-based treatment, and recreational activities that enhance your recovery.
Outpatient Drug Rehab
Outpatient care provides evidence-based treatment in a non-residential setting. This treatment option is often the second step after inpatient or the first step after detox.
Outpatient care provides the freedom to continue working or going to school, but work best when you have strong support at home and access to reliable transportation.
Medication-assisted treatment, (MAT) is specialized for addictions to opioid or alcohol. In a MAT program, patients attend behavioral therapy sessions to address addiction while also receiving prescription medications.
These medications, such naltrexone, help to lower cravings and dependence so the patient can focus more on treatment and recovery.
Aftercare planning makes a plan to connect patients with community-based resources that will help them stay sober after they complete treatment.
Whether your plan includes 12-step meetings, peer therapy groups, or sober-living housing arrangements, aftercare planning is a crucial tool for receiving ongoing support.

Always read your plan carefully to ensure you understand your benefits. Contact The Bluffs today to find out if we accept your insurance.
