With all of the different methods available for alcohol rehab, why is inpatient a better choice than outpatient rehab? First, let's discuss the difference between the two. Inpatient alcohol addiction treatment means that the person undergoing treatment lives in the physical place or facility that is doing the treatment for the duration of their program. There may be follow-up after discharge which occurs after the inpatient program is complete, but the inpatient portion of the program will occur where the person is sleeping and spending their days.

Outpatient means that the person undergoing treatment visits a facility for their treatment but then is able to leave that location to return home, or return to work. Their treatment takes place at regularly scheduled times and utilizes different therapies and counseling.

To feel in control is to have power, to have "it all together." If you are not in control, it's like admitting that you are powerless or that you cannot manage yourself around the alcohol that you are addicted to. Maybe you don't care what other people will think of you and whether or not you are in control. But admitting to yourself that you are not in control may be the most difficult thing to...
