Your First Step To A New Life

Outpatient Program

If you are thinking of treatment for a drug or alcohol abuse issue, you may want to know more about an Outpatient Treatment option. It can help you get therapy and counseling while you are living away from the facility, most likely at home. We offer this option because it is more convenient for those with families or who are working and cannot take time off.

What Are the Levels of Care?

There are several levels of care that begin from the moment you check into a rehab facility. These include:
• Residential treatment and detox
• Outpatient- OP
• Intensive Outpatient – IOP
• After care

What is the Difference Between Residential and Outpatient Care?

In a residential program, called Inpatient rehab, the patient stays at the facility; it may be more costly but has a higher success rate. The program can last from 28 days to six months. Detox is part of this program, and medical attention is available 24/7. On the other hand, there is Outpatient Rehab and treatment. Detox can be done while you’re in an outpatient program, if the withdrawal symptoms are mild to moderate. Withdrawal from drugs usually lasts about 5 to 6 days. Clients undergoing outpatient rehab detox must visit a rehab facility or hospital for checks while they are undergoing this detox. They must be available to physicians if medicine is needed. Some facilities may be registered to provide only one type of care, so be sure to check that they have an outpatient option.

Outpatient Treatment Choices

Outpatient care means that you will be going to treatment during the day but returning home at night. It is more affordable than inpatient care. It can last from three months to over a year. While in this program, you can maintain a social circle of support and may be going to meetings, such as AA. If you are mildly addicted to a substance, this might be the right choice for you. You will be able to go home nightly to spend time with family as well as keep a circle of friends for support in your recovery. You can use your cell phone when not in therapy or meetings, and continue on with your life, gaining options for a lasting recovery. You’ll be in therapy or a recovery program for approximately 10 to 12 hours a week at the treatment center. Meeting are usually held at night, allowing no disruption from working hours during the day. Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) are often used for outpatient services. These groups have been shown to be successful and can help you stay sober for the long term.
