Lake Tahoe Drug Rehab

The Differents is just that: different. Our Lake Tahoe drug rehab provides innovative care for addiction and dual diagnosis treatment in a comfortable, close-knit setting. 

The Differents is a trusted drug rehab in Reno that offers compassionate addiction treatment care for those in need.

The Importance of Professional Addiction Treatment

Statistics show that 16.5 percent of the United States population ages 12+ met the criteria for a substance use disorder in 2021. Substance abuse is common and can take many different forms, but unfortunately, a large portion of those who need help don’t get it, often because they feel that they do not need help. This can lead to harrowing consequences such as worsening symptoms of addiction, relationship, financial or legal problems, and negative physical or mental health outcomes, including overdose, coma, and death.

Treatment for addiction matters because it helps clients address all of the factors that can play a role in addiction thoroughly and provides support in staying sober, which may vary in intensity based on a client’s need. There’s extensive research on what helps someone create a sustainable recovery. For example, the importance of community and a strong support system. This is why choosing the right treatment center matters. The Differents treatment center has a client-centered approach and treatment philosophy that leads to positive outcomes. 

We have small group sizes and a 3:1 client-to-staff ratio to ensure that your individual needs are met. The Differents offers luxury treatments, activities, and surroundings for client comfort and healing. Clients may live offsite or on-site. The length of your treatment stay will vary based on factors like your personal needs, and every client leaves with an aftercare plan.

You can choose to live on-site while in your program at The Differents or commute to treatment throughout the week. If you need lodging, we offer single-occupancy rooms to clients with a full selection of meals, snacks, luxury amenities, indoor and outdoor fitness, and so much more on-site. Clients living on-site must attend at least twelve hours of groups and one individual therapy session per week.

There is a solution.
There is hope.
There is The Differents.

Lake Tahoe Addiction Treatment Options

Our Lake Tahoe addiction treatment programs meet a client where they’re at and help them get to where they want to be. Clients in all of the levels of care or treatment options at The Differents get an individualized treatment plan, which will determine their specific treatment schedule. With that in mind, here are the levels of care at The Differents and a little bit about what each one entails. If you would like to see a sample treatment schedule, please feel free to reach out to our staff.

Withdrawal management

Getting off of substances can come with withdrawal symptoms that are uncomfortable and, in some cases, dangerous. Our withdrawal management program is designed to help you discontinue the use of substances safely and start to restore your body. Throughout the process, you will experience the utmost privacy and benefit from 24/7 medical supervision from staff. Usually, withdrawal management or detox is short-term and functions as a precursor to another level of care. 

Partial hospitalization

Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) are the most intensive form of outpatient treatment. In PHP at The Differents, you can expect to engage in a full treatment schedule Monday-Saturday. You will start the day with a group at 9 AM after personal hygiene and breakfast. Then, you will attend other groups, meetings, chores, meditation and journaling, recreation, and other treatments or restorative activities. You will have individual therapy once weekly and can request additional sessions with your therapist as needed. Fun activities, including but not limited to game nights, movie nights, hiking, arts and crafts, and music, help bring clients together and foster a sense of enjoyment. 

Intensive outpatient

Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) are one step below partial hospitalization. The main difference between IOP and partial hospitalization is the time commitment. IOP requires fewer treatment hours per week than PHP, but clients will still attend regular groups, individual therapy sessions, and other treatments or activities outlined in their individualized treatment plan. IOP may be ideal for clients looking for a Lake Tahoe drug rehab who need to work, go to school, or tend to other responsibilities while in treatment. 


Aftercare sets you up for success post-treatment. The Differents offers a range of aftercare services, including but not limited to referrals for providers in your area who can help you continue getting care and support, virtual peer groups, and relapse prevention biometric wearables. Nevada residents can continue meeting with their individual therapists from our drug rehab in Lake Tahoe as part of their aftercare plan.
