Is Inpatient Better Than Outpatient Treatment?

When it comes to inpatient versus outpatient treatment, the better option is subjective. Determining whether you or your loved one receive inpatient therapy or outpatient therapy depends entirely on the individual. The best way to decide which treatment is the better option is to first understand the difference between inpatient and outpatient.

What is the Difference Between Inpatient and Outpatient Treatment?

Inpatient treatments include intensive, residential programs designed to treat serious addictions needing full-time attention. Whereas, outpatient treatments are part-time programs for recovering users. You may be a local resident who has been in recovery and simply needs support by way of intensive therapy you can do after work or school. On the other hand, whether you’re local or from out of town, you may choose one of our longer programs which require staying as a guest.

Which choice is the best for you?

Guests of Meridian's inpatient or outpatient care receive a personal experience tailored to their needs for long-term recovery. Regardless of which program guests enter, they will have a space that looks and feels like home. At Meridian, everyone is a guest first. We design our programs starting from the staff that supports you to the experience we offer for treatment so that you may be successful.

Our admissions department thoroughly discusses the needs of our guests to match them with the best programs. The best thing about Meridian is that we understand there is no one-size-fits-all treatment. Our methods are built for you, the individual. By focusing our programs on the individual, we maintain a family environment. Regardless of whether you select inpatient or outpatient treatment, Meridian will be sure you reach your goals for lasting recovery.
