Colorado has a higher rate of substance use disorders (SUDs) than the national average, but fortunately, addiction is a treatable disorder. However, some people struggling with addiction need help but are not sure where to look for it.

Why Choose Outpatient Addiction Treatment?
Outpatient rehab is a wonderful option if you need help with your addiction but want to maintain normalcy in your life. There are many benefits to inpatient treatment, but there are as many good reasons to choose an outpatient addiction treatment program.
An initial intake with a staff member will result in recommendations for how to proceed. Still, ultimately, you will determine what option is best for you based on your particular situation, needs, and comfort level. At your intake, you should consider the following factors:
- Medical and psychiatric history
- Addiction history, including severity and duration of your SUD
- Nature and availability of family support
- Substance-free home environment
- Commitments and responsibilities
- Your employment and whether you are eligible for paid leave
- Financial considerations
Having an honest dialogue with both staff at the facility and your family and other members of your support community is a great way to sort through your priorities and make a decision.
Benefits of Outpatient Addiction Treatment
Many factors make outpatient rehab the ideal choice for thousands of Americans beginning addiction recovery every year.
A Flexible Schedule That’s Considerate of Your Responsibilities
Outpatient rehab is ideal if you have a job, school, or family commitments that would be negatively impacted by entering a residential program. Whether you own your own business, cannot afford time off, are a single parent, or are a few months away from getting a degree, the flexibility of an outpatient program will work for you. At CeDAR, you can choose from a day or evening program that works with your schedule.
You Can Work on Recovery While Living in Your Home
Living away from home during addiction treatment is a turn-off for many people. If you are more comfortable and feel safest in your own home, and if your family and the rest of your support group are going to be there for you during your rehab, outpatient treatment is perfect. As long as your home is trigger-free, there is no reason for you to leave to start recovery.
You Get the Best of Both Worlds
When you are enrolled in outpatient addiction treatment, you experience the world inside your rehab program and also begin practicing the skills you are learning in real time when you leave to head home or to your workplace. In group or individual therapy, you can process what it is like for you when you go every day. At home, you can refuel from the work of rehab, surrounded by the love of family and friends.
A Cost That’s More Accessible for You
Generally, even with good health insurance, the out-of-pocket expenses are less when you are in an outpatient program because there are no room and board costs. You will receive a high level of care provided by professionals at a more affordable price.
The outpatient addiction treatment center at CeDAR offers a 12-week program. If it emerges that you require a higher intensity or longer duration of care, your treatment team can arrange for you to move to inpatient rehab or extend the length of your program.
