There are more than 80 different treatment facilities in Arkansas. Most rehabs in the state offer outpatient care, ideal for clients who can only attend treatment services during daytime hours. But, there’s also a large proportion of rehabs that offer inpatient care, where clients are residents of the facility, participate in intensive therapy, and receive round-the-clock care.
Most evaluations of treatment efforts show better outcomes in people who attend inpatient treatment. At a residential facility, clients are separated from their daily lives, which allows them to focus on healing and keeps them safe from external influences. The constant access to care and support is important to building a strong foundation of recovery.
Arkansas has evolved its treatment approach over the years, and the state recognizes the link between substance abuse and mental illness. Because of this, there’s a wider selection of dual diagnosis rehabs in Arkansas for those seeking mental health services alongside substance abuse services.
Many rehabs in the state also have specially tailored groups to serve the diverse needs of their clients. Some groups are gender-specific, age-specific, or geared towards survivors of different forms of trauma, such as domestic violence or sexual abuse.
