(FAQ) I can’t take time off of work to go to rehab. What are my treatment options?
What are my treatment options if I don’t have time for rehab?
Rehab is a luxury that many drug abusers may not be able to afford. Inpatient rehab requires at least 28 days of complete devotion to addiction recovery. Many rehab treatment programs are even longer. Patients will need to live within the treatment facility. They receive medical detox, meals, behavioral therapies, counseling sessions and just about everything they need at the treatment center.
Unfortunately, this amount of devotion is not possible for everyone. Many drug abusers have families to take care of and work responsibilities. If their children are young, they might not be able to leave them with someone else. They might also not be able to take time off of work, especially if their family is relying on their income. If you’re seeking addiction treatment, but can’t take time off of work, here are several other options that can help. These options offer a lower level of care; however, they can be just as effective.
