Outpatient Rehab

About outpatient rehab programs

Most of the time the two most viable treatment options for alcoholics as well as drug addicts are namely: inpatient and outpatient rehab programs. Both of these programs provide the most important services and therapies required for the treatment of addictions and dependency but both these programs have different structures for treatment. Where an inpatient rehab facility requires the patient to take up residence in their centre for the course of the program, an outpatient rehab facility involves the patient to attend part-time sessions at the centre.

Most of the time outpatient rehab facilities are run by local hospitals, community centres, churches or private institutions and this fact means that they are way cheaper than inpatient facilities as outpatient centres are either funded by churches, community or non-government bodies. While a inpatient rehab centre is perfect for severe addicts who have sufficient financial resources, an outpatient rehab facility provides non-severe patients a chance to clean up their act.

What is a typical outpatient rehab session like?

An outpatient rehab facility is perfect for patients who are in the first stage of dependency. These programs are available for patients suffering from lifestyle dependencies that include:

  • Stimulants
  • Narcotics
  • Opioids
  • Prescription drugs
  • Alcohol and tobacco
  • Sex and gambling

As the types of addictions that need to be treated vary from patient to patient, the treatment approach is also different for different patients. But the basic approach of the program remains the same and includes the following components:

  • Assessment
  • Education about the problem and the medical treatment
  • Medically assisted detoxification
  • Individual and group therapy
  • 12 step program
  • Periodic alcohol or drug screening
  • Aftercare monitoring

Benefits of Outpatient Treatment

  • The benefit of joining an outpatient rehab program includes:
  • Help the addict to balance family as well as work related issues while undergoing the treatment as well
  • This is a cost-effective treatment option and is affordable for patients who are also suffering from financial stress
