Outpatient Rehab Centers

Outpatient rehabilitation facilities differ from inpatient rehab centers in the sense that one does not need to stay in a residence during the time of your treatment. For outpatient treatment one is able to get counseling or therapy during the day and can go home after.

There are several advantages to this type of treatment. A major advantage is that one is still able to work and take care of their families. Another advantage is the cost as many inpatient facilities are run around $13,000 and can go up to $80,000 for a typical 28 day program. Outpatient treatment may also help the addict in adapting to living in their new everyday lives, and learning the coping skills necessary for maintaining their recovery.

Licensed professional outpatient treatment centers are able to offer unique and individualized treatment plans for patients. They also offer group sessions with other patients suffering from addiction or other mental health and behavioral issues.

Is outpatient treatment for everyone?

There are several things to consider before choosing which course of treatment to pursue, as many people do not have the ability to leave their families, jobs, schooling, etc. It also depends on the person who is addicted, whether or not they want to get help plays an important role in deciding what form of treatment will be the best fit. Many addicts are in denial about their addiction, and will put off getting any type of treatment for years; however, the sooner they recognize that their problem is out of control and seek treatment, the more probable their success rate will become for long term sobriety.

Multiple support groups

Relapse is often part of addiction, but it does not have to be. Although the rate for long-term recovery is low, there are millions of people whom have recovered from their addiction. In addition to outpatient care there are multiple support groups out there to help, AA and NA probably being the most popular and recognized. There are also many online support groups in which one can stay anonymous.

Overall, it is up to the person addicted to decide what to do. If they can afford an inpatient facility then that may be the best option; if they cannot afford to take the time off, then outpatient treatment may be better; if they can afford neither, then a support group would offer help and advice.
