Treatment Types – Outpatient vs Inpatient
There are essentially two setting options when it comes to addiction treatment: inpatient or outpatient. Many people suffering from severe substance abuse disorder involving drugs or alcohol will require medical supervision during withdrawal, and thus would be best treated in inpatient settings, such as residential detox and rehab facilities (see our inpatient rehab centre).
Outpatient addiction treatment, also known as ‘dayhab’, takes place in addiction specific medical clinics, and is most appropriate for those who are suffering from addictions but can still lead an overall functional life. For example, they can still function at work and meet family responsibilities even through their addiction.
At The Cabin Sydney, our counselling schedule takes place around work hours so that our clients are still able to attend their jobs and family lives while getting the required addiction treatment they need and deserve. Some clients may need to spend time in our inpatient facility initially, before continuing at our outpatient facility. This is assessed on a client-by-client basis.
