Intensive Treatment on an Outpatient Basis

We recommend an intensive, structured outpatient program for people who have already recognized the benefits of living life in recovery. After completing an inpatient program, it is so tempting to dive back into your life with a renewed purpose; however, in our experience, this renewed perspective does not tend to last long in early recovery without consistent, formal support. We know that staying in recovery is a challenge no matter how much we love our families and our new lives. An outpatient program allows people to live independently while still committing to the following types of addiction treatment:

Many people cannot afford to take additional time off from work, school, and family obligations after completing a full-time, residential drug rehab. An outpatient treatment program like the ones we offer at CeDAR allow clients to receive a similar treatment program to the one you experienced during residential treatment; however, you will be able to attend these part-time programs while continuing to attend work, school, or family obligations.

Each patient in our outpatient programs is assigned an individual therapist who has an in-depth understanding of your personal and medical history. You will meet with your therapist throughout the outpatient program. We do our best to keep group sizes small and not exceed twelve people.

Addiction Recovery: Your Mental Health Matters

Becoming chemically dependent on alcohol or drugs is one of the side effects of using a substance to cope with symptoms of a mental health condition. Being diagnosed with a mental health condition alongside a substance use disorder is called a dual diagnosis. Dual diagnosis patients are especially vulnerable because each condition exacerbates the other. In many cases, it can be hard to determine whether certain symptoms are being caused by a mental health condition or are a result of a substance use disorder. Symptoms of a dual diagnosis include the following:

  • Withdrawal from friends and family
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Rapid changes in behavior
  • Feeling out of control
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Panic attacks
  • Poor physical coordination
  • Taking risks with medication
  • Loss of control over substance use
  • Increases or decreases in appetite
