Meth Rehab - Inpatient vs. Outpatient Treatment

Jerz72  Rehab - Inpatient vs. Outpatient Treatment

I've been doing meth for about 10 years now and I dont think I can quit on my own...but the cost of doing an inpatient rehab is quite alot. Do most people that quit do so by going to rehab?

Re: Rehab - Inpatient vs. Outpatient

You are right - it is very expensive. Go to an NA or AA meeting - start there - start now.

Welcome.............keep reading and posting.

Re: Rehab - Inpatient vs. Outpatient Treatment

Hi Jerz and welcome. Congratulations on taking that first step. There are actually some free in-house rehabilitation programs that are very successful too. Here are some links:

God bless you - I'll be praying for you.... you can do it!

Private programs are expensive, but there are many programs that accept insurance, even more that have sliding scales adjusting the cost of rehab to your income.

Of course, NA is free. Locate a meeting. Attend. If you like it great, if you aren't thrilled with that group find another. It could just be personality conflicts.

Why on earth would you want to do it alone when there is so much help available?

I used for 26 years and I didn't go to an inpatient rehab - I didn't need to. I faced my problem while continuing to live my life - Narcotics Anonymous saved my life!

Re: Rehab - Inpatient vs. Outpatient Treatment

If you are fairly functional in normal activities I'd strongly suggest Intensive Outpatient.

Functional can be described as being able to drive a car, or take public transportation to meetings. Taking care of daily activities, care of clothing, preparing meals, paying your bills, (at least most of them) and carrying on normal transactions in a place of business.

There are good reasons for this, and i can expand on them if you'd like.

Many IOP's (intensive outpatient programs) are free.

Inpatient programs are better suited for those who are indigent, homeless, or unable to exercise any form of self-discipline.

If you can get into an IOP, and go to 12-step meetings also, your chances of recovery are significantly greater.

What city or town are you in?
