Addiction treatment programs are typically classified as either residential or outpatient. Variations in what is offered under residential or outpatient programs exist, depending on the treatment center. However, their structure remains consistent. Residential programs prioritize residential stays while clients receive ongoing therapy, medications, and resources. Outpatient treatment allows clients to visit a rehab center to receive treatment during the day before returning home and going about their normal lives. To provide clients with comprehensive options, The Arbor offers both residential and outpatient addiction treatment options.

Substance Abuse Treatment Programs
The biggest difference between substance abuse treatment programs is whether they are primarily residential or outpatient. Both program structures focus on guiding clients toward sobriety and achieving long-term life transformation. Which structure can best support someone in getting sober depends on numerous factors.
Residential Addiction Treatment
Client residency provides the backdrop for residential recovery at The Arbor. We offer 24/7 care, meals, support, and monitoring. This combination can be crucial in the early days of addiction recovery when withdrawal symptoms are at their peak and a person’s body is undergoing major adjustments to being off a drug. Residential rehab requires major life changes that align with the changes necessary for addiction recovery. Constant care is shown to deliver higher success rates than outpatient care alone. We offer the following treatment programs in our luxury residential rehab:
- Equine-assisted therapy
- Dual diagnosis treatment
- Sober living options
The large amounts of overhead that go into providing such comprehensive support do make residential programs more expensive. And while they eliminate the distractions of everyday life, entering a residential rehab center forces a major disruption. People must take a leave of absence from work and relinquish family responsibilities in order to embrace the type of treatment delivered at a residential facility. Many people struggling with addiction use family and employment responsibilities as an excuse not to attend treatment and get sober. However, alcohol addiction treatment provides a path out from the depths of addiction, so each individual can start to regain control over their lives and become more present in their work and home lives. While attending a luxury rehab seems inconvenient, the rewards are limitless.
Outpatient Addiction Treatment
In contrast, outpatient substance abuse treatment programs allow clients the freedom to attend therapy and receive medications when it is most convenient. We recommend outpatient programs for people who have recently finished a residential program and are transitioning back into everyday life. Clients can largely retain their normal routines and often continue working during treatment. Accessing care in this way allows for greater flexibility and more privacy as it doesn’t require the same lifestyle overhaul.
At the same time, receiving outpatient care does not eliminate the everyday risks and triggers that people in addiction recovery are likely to encounter. That means the looser structure of outpatient care, while generally more affordable, is best implemented with milder addictions.
Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment
Evidence-based methods for treating addictions involve a combination of therapy, medication, and peer support.
Behavioral therapies are often used to help people struggling with addiction. The particular type of behavioral therapy depends on the addiction in question. A few examples include:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy for cocaine and alcohol addictions
- Contingency management for opioid and stimulant addictions
- Motivational interviewing for alcohol and marijuana addictions
- 12-Step facilitation therapy for alcohol and opioid addictions
Many different and varied therapies are used in conjunction with the traditional ones. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) helps clients rearrange their thinking to avoid negative thought patterns, which can be enhanced by also participating in art therapy. Behavioral therapies are good at addressing addiction because they target the root causes of addiction: thoughts and behaviors. They start by identifying the mental patterns and behavioral habits that drive someone to continue an addiction and work to modify those patterns and habits.
Addiction Doesn’t Need to Dominate Your Life
Many substance abuse treatment programs utilize group therapy. Still, others connect clients to peer support groups or mentors who can offer accountability, support, and guidance. Addiction can be isolating, and many addictions have a sense of isolation at their root. Connecting people in recovery to positive, sober relationships is critical to long-term recovery.
