1. Inpatient Drug Rehab
This is where you would go and stay, inpatient,
for several days or even several weeks, in order
to get clean and sober.  There are groups every
day, meetings, lectures, counselors, therapists,
and of course other peers who are trying to
recover as well.  This is probably the most
expensive option, and it will generally be the
most powerful option for most people.  There is
also a lot of added flexibility in drug rehab
because the therapist can set up the recovering
addict for different solutions when it comes to
aftercare.

2. Outpatient Therapy
Just like inpatient but the addict or alcoholic
goes home to sleep each night, then returns back
during the day for more groups and therapy. 
Obviously, less expensive, and much more
dangerous in terms of relapse.  Access to drugs
and alcohol is the obvious difference here
between inpatient and outpatient rehab.  With
outpatient, you give up the protected environment
in order to save money.

3. Counseling or Therapy
Some people are terrified of groups, and much of
traditional recovery is based on meetings and
group therapy.  So a solution for some might be
individual counseling.  In my experience, this is
rare to see success if this is the case, and the
more likely solution is for an individual to push
past their fear and gain some exposure to groups,
though this is not the solution that anyone wants
to hear.  But in extreme cases, counseling or
therapy alone might provide enough of a solution
for an addict to break through to real recovery.

4. Drug Therapy
Some addicts need drug maintenance therapy in
order to stay off of street drugs.  A
controversial solution, some would say that this
does not even represent recovery.  Others see it
as a necessary step for some hard core addicts. 
Either way, it is another piece of the puzzle for
some, and might become part of a recovery
solution.
