The first 90 days after attending an inpatient drug rehab tend to be the most difficult. An outpatient drug treatment program offers patients the ability to gradually return to everyday life. Of course, most people who finish alcohol or drug rehab are eager to start living their new lives without being encumbered by follow-up treatment. For the best chance at a lasting addiction recovery, we recommend an outpatient treatment program.
For people in early recovery, an outpatient drug treatment program can make a huge impact on their ability to remain in recovery without resorting to old habits. For those who are ready to get back to life while staying accountable, outpatient rehab can be a good option. At CeDAR, we offer a range of outpatient services.
When Is Outpatient Rehab Right for You?
Outpatient rehab is beneficial to those who have a safe, drug-free environment to live in. It is also important to have a strong support system in place to help you to remain sober. On top of this, for those with serious addiction and dependence, a detox program may be the first step before outpatient therapy can be used. In all cases, our team will provide you with insight into whether this type of therapy is right for you.
Benefits of Outpatient Rehab
Outpatient rehab meets less frequently than other programs. It enables you to live at home while receiving care. Some of the benefits of this include:
- Being surrounded by family and friends may help you to feel more confident and supported throughout the process. For some people, this type of support is beneficial because the family is committed to helping to support recovery.
- Outpatient may allow you to continue to go to school or work. It allows you to engage with life more so than you could in inpatient treatment.
- This type of addiction therapy allows you to get help from your therapist when dealing with real-life challenges. You have someone to help you through those challenging times as they occur.
- Treatment is customized to meet your needs, based on what’s happening to them. You may need help with a relationship problem one day and dealing with trauma the next session. Though time limitations may limit some access to the care you need.
- For many people, outpatient programs seem more realistically available. For those who do not want to leave family and friends, this type of therapy can be a good opportunity.
Is Partial Hospitalization Program a Better Option?
Outpatient treatment is different from an intensive outpatient program (IOP) or partial hospitalization program (PHP). These programs require a lot more time spent in therapy, though you will still be able to live at home. IOP works to provide addiction recovery services for numerous hours most days a week. PHP has a mental health focus allowing you to work on addiction and mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety at the same time. These programs are excellent step-down programs after residential care. They may also be beneficial to those who need advanced treatment but do not want to leave home.
