Day-care programmes offer the same range of treatment as residential care programmes, but you can return home each night if you have obligations to attend to, such as looking after children or dependents, or a job to go to.
While this affords you more flexibility, and is less disruptive to your daily life, the most successful recoveries are usually arrived at when those in treatment are subjected to the least amount of stress. Better outcomes usually result when patients can focus entirely on themselves and their recovery. The perfect scenario would be to have residential treatment and then go immediately to day care, as this is not affordable or practical to everyone, Day care (when suitable) can also be the Primary Treatment( it is then imperative that the Day Care facility can offer everything that the Residential facility offers, except a bed.
