Outpatient Alcohol & Drug Rehab
Addiction can be devastating to one’s life and family, which is why seeking treatment as soon as possible is essential. Unfortunately, not everyone has the time and funds required to attend inpatient rehabilitation. For those who want to treat their drug and alcohol addiction in a comprehensive way without having to compromise their work and home life, outpatient alcohol & drug rehab can be a great option.
What to expect from outpatient addiction treatment
Outpatient rehab programs treat drug addiction by facilitating detox and teaching individuals the skills necessary to resist addiction and build a healthier life. Outpatient treatment programs are typically individualized according to your specific needs and severity of addiction. These programs blend several distinctive elements:
- Detox assistance including medication management
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy including 12-step meetings
- Family therapy
- Education and skill-building activities
As part of outpatient treatment, you may be involved in a few or all of these activities for anywhere from several hours per week to a full-time structured schedule. These resources can help you overcome addiction, improve your overall mental health and wellbeing, understand your triggers, and learn how to overcome them.
Why choose outpatient addiction treatment?
There are several advantages that make outpatient treatment an attractive option for many individuals suffering from debilitating addiction. These include:
- Freedom to schedule treatment in a way that doesn’t interfere with family, work, and other personal obligations.
- Support from loved ones and the comfort of familiar surroundings since outpatient treatment allows you to stay at home.
- The non-disruptive nature of outpatient treatment eliminates the need to disclose that you’re getting addiction treatment, providing you greater privacy.
- Remaining in the real world while you’re in treatment allows you to actively self-monitor and apply skills learned in therapy.
- Outpatient treatment will help you find like-minded peers who can provide support and encouragement outside of treatment.
Are you a good fit for outpatient addiction treatment?
Outpatient treatment is generally appropriate for individuals with substance abuse and addiction problems that are relatively mild or moderate. These individuals may have a relatively stable state of mind and physical health. Outpatient treatment is also appropriate for those who have a supportive environment at home that is free of triggers and drug use. Many individuals who have previously completed inpatient treatment often transition to outpatient treatment in order to maintain their sobriety and make the change back to their usual activities more smooth.
