Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment
There are many different kinds of outpatient treatment centers that provide a wide range of programs to help individual's overcome the use of substances and recover. Some outpatient programs offer more intense forms of therapy than others. Outpatient settings are less helpful for people who suffer from chronic addiction or have used substances for a long period of time.
Outpatient treatment programs are less expensive than residential treatment and are extremely beneficial for patients needing to maintain employment or schooling. Patients are able to remain in their homes with their families and still receive treatment and therapy during their recovery. This can be challenging for some people because patients are still around their normal surroundings and aren't always able to avoid people or situations that can trigger substance use. Patients have to be very diligent when it comes to avoiding situations that can lead to relapse during this time.
As stated above there are a variety of different programs utilized in outpatient substance abuse treatment settings such as Behavior Treatment like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or Multidimensional Family Therapy and some outpatient treatment settings may provide detoxification. Other programs may include:
- Addiction Education
- Individual Counseling
- Group Counseling
- 12 Step Programs
- Motivational incentives
- Family Counseling
It's extremely important for anyone working toward recovery from substance use and addiction to surround them self with positive support during this time. Some outpatient programs recommend their clients to attend self- help meetings like Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous in their local area to help strengthen their sobriety and recovery.
