In order to determine whether inpatient or outpatient treatment is best for you, there are a number of things to consider. First, it is important to understand the basic differences between the two. Inpatient or residential treatment provides 24 hour care at a live-in facility. Along with constant medical supervision, inpatient treatment centers provide detoxification services, a very structured and defined environment, individual, group and family therapies, as well as a number of other services. Most outpatient centers do not address medical conditions and nutritional needs. Patient's who require that kind of assistance will need to find other help options, as opposed to those within an inpatient treatment center where all services are provided at one location.

In this approach, the therapist communicates to the patient that a lapse is not uncommon in recovery and that it does not negate the progress the patient has made. The first test of RPT's effectiveness at treating cocaine dependence showed that relapse prevention helped individuals stay in treatment and did help them to become abstinent.
