Whether planning recovery at home or a residential rehab facility, an intervention is often a critical first step. It can happen anywhere, but it’s generally best to select a place where the person you care about can feel safe and comfortable, like their home. When that’s the case, planning the rest of the stages of an at-home addiction recovery program is much easier because you won’t necessarily need to relocate them to get the help they need.
Can I Do Rehab at Home?
Rehab at home is possible, but it’s also important to remember that it’s a better option for some than others. Here’s what to consider.
Am I a Good Fit for Rehab at Home?
If you haven’t considered going to rehab at home until now, the good news is that it absolutely is an option if you or someone you know is struggling with drug or alcohol addiction. But just because it’s possible doesn’t mean it’s the best path for everyone struggling with these issues. Plenty of people attend residential rehab programs and go on to find success. At-home addiction treatment models didn’t develop because residential rehab doesn’t work. They developed because residential rehab doesn’t work for everyone.
But how do you know whether you or someone you care about can benefit from rehab at home? Before you decide, it’s worth taking the time to investigate who makes a good fit for at-home rehab, and we’ve put together this guide to help.
Lifestyles That Benefit From At-Home Rehab
At-home rehab is a particularly beneficial treatment option for individuals who:
- Have work commitments they can’t put on hold
- Have children or family responsibilities they can’t step away from
- Are musicians on tour or actors filming a project
- Have successfully completed rehab then relapsed
- Are young adults struggling with addiction rooted in a lack of purpose
If any of the above describe you or someone in your life, rehab at home could provide the personalized support needed to make a breakthrough in recovery.
Have You Tried Rehab Before?
One of the best ways to identify whether at-home rehab could be beneficial is to examine past experiences with residential rehab programs. We’ve found that the people best suited for at-home rehab have successfully gotten sober and completed some of the best residential rehab programs, but then struggle when they return to the real world and do not have the foundation they need to stay committed to sobriety. When this happens a couple times, at-home rehab is often a critical step to making sobriety “stick” in new ways.
