Prescription drug abuse is a problem that concerns government leaders, health officials, and law enforcement agencies. In recent years, many local governments have taken part in drug take-back programs to help prevent the continuing spread of prescription drug abuse. The Pennsylvania Attorney General’s office in Harrisburg, PA, has been encouraging local officials to participate in drug take-back events in order to help prevent the diversions, theft and abuse of these medications.
Inpatient vs. Outpatient Treatment Programs
Substance abuse treatment programs come in different forms and may use many different methods. A number of factors may determine which type of program is chosen. An individual who is enrolled in an inpatient residential program remains at the facility for the duration of the program. Individuals who choose outpatient treatment continue to live in their own homes or with loved ones. With both options, individuals will receive daily care and oversight. The selection of one of these options depends on the individual’s needs. Some advantages of these programs include:
- Inpatient. The individual is completely removed from substance abuse triggers, receives 24-hour care, and receives much more intensive treatment.
- Outpatient. Individuals are able to continue to spend regular time with their loved ones. This option is often more cost-effective than inpatient treatment and can be supplemented with other forms of therapy and care.
