Different types of Drug Abuse treatment programsMost people would think of full-time residential treatment when referring to the term treatment program. However, treatment programs are done in other settings and environments, and places with many different methodologies. There are several different levels of rehabilitation for drug abuse.

- Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
- Partial Hospitalization (PHP)
- Inpatient (detox)
- Extended Care
Programs for the treatment of drug abuse can be generally done at different levels, For example, a treatment program, for drug abuse could be a simple Intensive Outpatient Program, known as IOP. Lead by a certified, licensed counselor, an intensive outpatient program is primarily group therapy done three times a week, for 6 to 8 weeks.Or, treatment programs could refer to a full-time residential rehab center. In that case, the treatment program would be where the client resides in at the treatment center for some period of time, most often a minimum of 28 days, longer when possible.
