Inpatient and residential non-hospital treatment in New Hampshire provides the highest rates of success for clients, because of how these programs are structured. Drugs and alcohol aren't a temptation, or as much of one during the most challenging days of abstinence, because they aren't available. This of course isn't true in an outpatient setting because drugs are readily available. Client activities are based on tailored treatment plans, and treatment schedules are much more rigorous and aggressive because this is all the client will be doing. Without every day distractions, clients can focus on treatment and not be hampered by outside influences which could cause a relapse. Inpatient and residential treatment in New Hampshire can include individual therapy and counseling, group substance abuse counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational coaching, and other conditional steps including diagnosis and treatment of co-occurring mental health disorders for dual-diagnosis clients.
Because most of the drug rehab programs in New Hampshire are outpatient, residents may think this is the best option and choose it because of convenience or cost. But these programs in general off very minimal treatment services, and certainly do not have the best reputation of helping chronic addicts resolve more extensive drug and alcohol problems. Even the most aggressive outpatient treatment may not be sufficient, so this should be kept in mind and more intensive treatment considered as described above. If outpatient is the only option, clients can choose a more intensive option such as day treatment/partial hospitalization facilities in New Hampshire or intensive outpatient treatment for several days per week.
