“When I stopped living in the problem and began living in the answer, the problem went away.”
― Alcoholics Anonymous
The National Institute of Drug Abuse coined three methods for treating drug addiction:
- Withdrawal treatment
- Staying in treatment
- Relapse prevention
Soul Surgery incorporates all three of these approaches into our programs with the help of our professional medical staff and efficient treatment plans.
Making the decision to go to rehab is big. It’s a step in the right direction and your first official commitment to recovery. Your next phase is figuring out the kind of rehab program to go with: inpatient or outpatient. This article offers an in-depth look at each of these programs offered at our facilities.
This guide will cover:
- What is an inpatient rehab program?
- What are the benefits of residential treatment?
- How do you prepare for inpatient rehab?
- What is outpatient rehab?
- What is intensive outpatient care (IOP), and why is it used?
- What do Soul Surgery’s inpatient and outpatient programs include?
- What is the difference between inpatient and outpatient rehab?
What is an Inpatient Rehab Program (Residential Treatment)?
When you do the inpatient rehab program, also known as residential treatment, you live at the rehab center during the duration of your treatment plan. You’re fully integrated into the rehabilitation environment and take a break from work, school, and home life. Family members can be a part of your inpatient rehab program through visits and family therapy if needed.
What are the Benefits of Residential Treatment?
Residential treatment allows you to physically remove yourself from the environment where your addiction persists and gives you a fresh space to detox, socialize, and retrain your mind and body.
- Connection – You’ll have access to medical staff and therapists, plus a community of other guests who understand and can relate to what you’re going through.
- Focus – By immersing yourself in a rehabilitation center, you can take a break from the responsibilities of daily living and outside influence while focusing on recovery.
- Personalized – At Soul Surgery, we want you to feel individually cared for; that’s why we have a high staff-to-patient ratio to better focus our efforts on your individualized plan and progress.
- Continuum of Care – Inpatient care keeps you on a 24/7 road to restoration by surrounding you with people who hold you accountable and push you to succeed in recovery (at your own pace, of course.)
Preparing for Inpatient Rehab
You’ll want to consider the items to bring for different activities. Soul Surgery offers a variety of fun social activities and classes for our guests so that you can enjoy your stay and appreciate life without addiction. Some of our activities include tennis, basketball, swimming, and golf.
It’s important to make arrangements with your work, school, family and friends, and other commitments. Inform them early on that you won’t be available for several weeks and request time off. Sitting down with your loved ones and discussing your program plan can put them at ease and prepare them for what to expect as you begin your recovery.
One of the first steps taken when you start your stay at an addiction center is detoxing the substance from your body. Once you’re here, our medical team will be with you along the way to support and aid you with withdrawal symptoms.
What Is Outpatient Rehab?
Our outpatient treatment program allows you to commute from home several days a week for your treatment and gives you maximum flexibility. This way, you can continue with daily responsibilities at work, school, and with family while still receiving top-quality treatment for drugs or alcohol addiction.
What is Intensive Outpatient Care (IOP), and Why is it Used?
Soul Surgery’s intensive outpatient drug rehab works with your schedule by offering an evening intensive outpatient care program.
Due to the less restrictive environment of IOP, the program is built upon your trust, the patient, and our abilities to aid in your recovery. You’ll be held accountable for staying sober, just as you would be as an in-patient, but we won’t be able to monitor you daily.
Our medical staff is highly trained and experts in relapse prevention, but we recommend you consider inpatient treatment if you believe your urge to relapse will keep you from staying sober.
What Do Soul Surgery’s Inpatient and Outpatient Programs Include?
Both our inpatient and intensive outpatient programs offer the following services:
- Ambulatory Detox
- Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)

What’s the Difference Between Inpatient and Outpatient Rehab?
The most significant difference between our inpatient and outpatient program is the live-in options. Inpatient rehab requires that you live on-site during the period of time of your program, while outpatient rehab allows you to commute to program appointments while resuming your regular responsibilities.
Each of our programs offers different benefits, and it ultimately comes down to which one fits you and your personal recovery goals best. Regardless of your program, you’ll return home at the end of your treatment with new tools and skills for avoiding relapse and keeping on your path to recovery.
