How Does Outpatient Rehab Work?

Many people who need drug and alcohol treatment benefit from an initial stay in detox and residential treatment programs. In such programs, you spend time in a drug-free environment working on managing your disease. Each patient in recovery is, of course, different. Not everyone benefits from this type of situation or can afford to take an extended amount of time away from the responsibilities of work and family as they complete an inpatient program. In these cases, outpatient rehab treatment is an excellent option. At the Addiction Recovery Institute of America, our addiction specialists are proud to offer an outpatient rehab treatment program that you can trust.

What Is Outpatient Rehab Treatment?

Like in inpatient, residential treatment, in outpatient rehab treatment, you are focused on working on yourself and on managing your addiction. That is, you learn how to stop using but also how to minimize your risk of relapse. You learn about your disease. You learn why this may have happened to you. Most importantly, our treatment programs are designed to help restore your health while also improving your overall well-being.

The difference between this type of addiction treatment and inpatient treatment is that in an outpatient rehab treatment program, you will live at home. You will spend a significant amount of time in rehab working on your addiction, but you will return home each night, and in most cases, you can tailor your treatment schedule to fit your schedule. This type of treatment is best for those who have mild substance abuse rather than more severe forms, and for those who have a strong support network outside of rehab.

You will still come to our facility for treatment. During this time, you will get one-on-one counseling and support. You will work through a range of evidence-based treatment programs to facilitate your healing. You may participate in group therapy sessions as well. Additionally, you may receive any or all of the following:

  • Individualized treatment programs
  • Group therapy sessions
  • Family therapy sessions
  • Counseling designed for you
  • Medication assistance treatment

Who Is Best Suited For Outpatient Treatment?

At our substance abuse treatment programs in Florida, we encourage you to reach out to our team for a full consultation to discuss your specific needs. We can provide a comprehensive assessment to determine if your care is best managed with residential care or outpatient rehab treatment. If outpatient rehab treatment is right for you, we can then make recommendations for how frequently you come in for care. This may be a few times a week or just about every day. Additionally, the length of your sessions will depend on the severity of your addiction. Every person is different, and their addiction treatment needs are unique to them.

We may recommend outpatient rehab programs if:

  • You can stop using on your own and remain confident in not using.
  • A safe at-home environment is available to you.
  • People who want to support your healing and encourage a drug-free life are available to you.
  • You want a more flexible program that allows you to get help around your schedule.
  • You desire to have family and friends around you as you work through rehab.

If this sounds like the situation that you or someone you care about has found themselves in, outpatient rehab treatment may be the best choice. During this time, though, you will have to spend the time necessary to work on addressing your needs. With evidence-based treatment and our supportive counselors, you can reclaim your future through drug rehab and support. Our team is dedicated to helping you with the amount and level of care you need right now.
