Promises Behavioral Health’s addiction treatment centers around the country offer a range of outpatient services for addiction recovery. We can help you select the right level of care and will always meet your needs with professionalism and compassion. Our outpatient drug rehab centers provide an alternative to full-time residential treatment that can fit into your day-to-day life while still providing the support and guidance needed to successfully navigate an addiction recovery journey.
Clients focus on recovery during day or evening treatment but sleep at home or in a sober living residence. Outpatient treatment provides a flexible option for those who are ready to break free of a substance use disorder. Call 844.875.5609 today to learn more.
Why Choose an Outpatient Program?
There are many good reasons to choose an outpatient program for addiction recovery:
Get Treatment Without Interrupting Your Personal Life
An outpatient treatment program is a good alternative for those who do not require the structure of residential treatment. Also, it is good for those unable to put work and home commitments aside. The outpatient program provides support with a more flexible time commitment.
Establish a Support Network While You’re in Recovery
Outpatient rehab helps you build a support network while you’re in treatment. Build a community of sober friends as you attend therapy and group sessions, and call on the aid of family and friends every day as you work toward building new sober living skills.
Recovery for a Reduced Cost
The programs at outpatient drug rehab centers tend to cost less than inpatient programs and provide an affordable alternative.
What Types of Outpatient Programs Are Available?
There are two main types of outpatient rehab programs: day programs and intensive outpatient programs. Also, many people in outpatient treatment participate in a support group to reinforce the progress made during treatment.
Partial Hospitalization or Day Programs (PHPs)
PHPs offer the highest level of outpatient care and require the largest time commitment. Clients enrolled in this form of rehab travel to their treatment facility at least five days a week. They devote several hours to treatment or supportive therapy during each visit.
Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs)
Intensive outpatient treatment has a lower time commitment than a PHP, requiring up to a few hours a day, a few days a week. Also, as you progress in the program, the amount of time you spend on-site may decrease. Intensive outpatient programs are for people who have a strong focus on treatment, so to succeed in an outpatient program, you should have a strong support system and effective strategies to avoid relapse.
Continuing Care and Mutual Self-Help Groups
These support groups are for people working to stay sober. They provide the chance to learn from people who have experience with sober living some examples include Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. Also, there are 12-step alternatives such as SMART Recovery and Refuge Recovery.
What Types of Therapies Are Used in Outpatient Drug Rehab Centers?
Counseling is the most common form of treatment in outpatient addiction treatment, with many programs offering three types of counseling:
- Group – Group therapy programs allow you to share your experience with your peers and receive guidance from a trained therapist.
- Individual – Individual therapy programs let therapists tailor one-on-one counseling to your specific needs exploring issues relating to your daily life as you progress through recovery.
- Family – Family therapy treatment programs explore the many facets of your relationships and how they contribute to and have been affected by addiction.
No matter which type of outpatient treatment program you choose, Promises Behavioral Health will provide the support and guidance needed to manage addiction recovery.
Who Should Avoid Outpatient Drug Addiction Treatment?
Not everyone is a good match for outpatient drug rehab. Thus, a client may require inpatient treatment if they:
- Have a prior history of relapse – Many people recovering from drug or alcohol problems relapse to active substance abuse. If you have relapsed in the past, you may benefit from a full-time inpatient program where daily structure, monitoring, and support maximize your treatment benefits.
- Pose a danger to self or others – Some people in drug rehab struggle with behavioral challenges that increase the risk of harm to themselves or others. If you are at risk, monitored inpatient treatment is a better choice for recovery.
- Lack of a healthy household environment – For many people, dysfunctional relationships are a major trigger for substance abuse. Daily exposure to this sort of environment can severely decrease your ability to stay sober. For example, loved ones may not support you. Also, relapse easily occurs when you are surrounded by people who continue to use alcohol or drugs, so an inpatient program gives you a chance to get sober in a place that’s safe and supportive.
When you’re ready to take the first step towards a lasting recovery, reach out to a treatment center near you.
