La Jolla Recovery FAQ

What is the difference between Detox, Rehab and Sober Living?

Depending on the severity, different programs or treatment services are suggested as the first step, where a high severity level such as heroin or alcohol use disorder will require drug detox. Here medical supervision and oversight are needed for proper withdrawal and restoration of physiological stability. It may be essential to consider the transition to rehab or outpatient for the next level of therapy and social integration. Although the word rehab is the most common and is often considered an umbrella or encompassing term, this term refers to an inpatient residential program.

What responsibilities do family have once a client is in detox or rehab?

When a loved one is in detox or rehab, it can be confusing and overwhelming for families. It’s important to remember that the staff at the rehab center are there to help and are the experts in this situation.

As difficult as it may be, family members must step back and allow the staff to set the structure for their loved one’s treatment program. It is also essential for family members to find ways to get help for themselves during this time. Seeking help from a counselor or joining an Al-Anon support group can be beneficial as these resources provide family members with much-needed emotional support.

It is also essential for families to understand that their loved one may complain or feel they are being controlled or affected by the treatment program but that the alcohol and drug rehabilitation staff know what they need and will act accordingly.

In short, family members are responsible once their loved one is in detox or rehab: Give space, find help for themselves, and trust that the professionals know what is best. With these steps in place, families can better support their loved ones during addiction treatment and give them the best chance to recover successfully, including developing their mental health.
