Outpatient rehab is a cheaper alternative to inpatient rehab that can be used to effectively treat people suffering from drug addiction and alcohol addiction. Outpatient rehab is for people who want to overcome their addiction but don’t want to stay in a hospital or inpatient facility. No addiction should be taken lightly, and if you or someone you know is struggling to quit drinking or using, you should immediately seek treatment before the addiction becomes tougher to quit.
Who Can Benefit From Outpatient Rehab?
Our outpatient treatment programs allow patients to receive intensive addiction treatment while still retaining the freedom to go home at night. This is often the preferred option for patients with family, friends, or loved ones who can continue to support their recovery at home. It is also beneficial for patients to continue who continue their work responsibilities during their treatment.
Early Stages of Addiction
The early stages of addiction often require less intensive and around-the-clock treatment, which makes outpatient rehab an ideal option if your addiction isn’t severe. If you have only recently started abusing drugs or alcohol, outpatient rehab could be the ideal first step for you. Keep in mind that, unlike in inpatient therapy, you will still be exposed to many of the stresses and temptations that led to substance abuse in the first place. This could be a positive if you feel you are ready to address those stressors while treating the problem.
After you have completely purged the lingering effects of drugs or alcohol in a detox center, the next phase of treatment is undoing the physical, mental, and emotional effects of addiction. Our trained addiction counselors work to treat the underlying psychological triggers behind addictive behaviors and replace them with coping skills for living a sober life. Treatment involves a combination of one-on-one counseling, group therapy sessions, and alternative therapy treatments.
Do You Have Too Many Obligations?
Parents and professionals often have busy schedules that prevent them from taking a substantial break from their families or jobs to address their addiction. As a result, these people often go through their day-to-day activities without getting the help they need, which can end up intensifying the addiction. With outpatient rehab, busy parents and professionals can check-in for treatment on weekdays and still be able to get home with enough time to perform their family and work duties.
Other benefits of outpatient rehab include:
- Affordability: Outpatient rehab costs less than inpatient rehab because it doesn’t require as many facilities, services, and amenities.
- Flexibility: With outpatient rehab, you have to check into the treatment facility on specific days and for a certain amount of hours, but you have more freedom to continue your daily activities than at an inpatient facility.
- Time with Loved Ones: If you want to be able to spend time with your family while you recover, then outpatient rehab might be the right option for you. Having love and support is a crucial part of the recovery process.
It is important to note that while you are still living at home, a significant amount of your time will be committed to treatment at one of our drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers. If you have a job you need to go to, we will work with you to develop an appropriate schedule.

What is outpatient rehab?
Outpatient rehab is a form of alcohol and drug addiction treatment in which individuals continue to live at home while attending various treatments multiple times a week at an addiction treatment facility. Unlike residential rehab or partial hospitalization, individuals in outpatient rehab do not need to live or sleep at the facility. Instead, they maintain their current living arrangements while visiting the facility anywhere from two to five or seven days a week for treatment. Depending on the program, the individual may spend several hours or the entire day at the facility. Outpatient rehab can be very beneficial, but it is not for everyone. It is generally only appropriate when an individual has a healthy, supportive environment at home, as well as the means to attend treatments several times a week. Often, outpatient rehab follows partial hospitalization or other more intensive care; however, it may also serve as a standalone option for those with less severe substance use disorders.
