Outpatient Drug Rehab
Locating an Out-Patient drug rehab facility.
There are some similarities between outpatient and inpatient drug rehab programs. Outpatient drug rehab is designed to achieve the same goal as inpatient or residential drug rehab; long-term abstinence from drug or alcohol use. And, like inpatient drug rehab, there are a variety of approaches designed to reach that goal including problem-solving groups, specialized therapies such as insight-oriented psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and 12-step programs.
The most obvious difference between outpatient and inpatient drug rehab programs is that outpatient addiction treatment facilities do not provide living quarters for the addict. Call now or fill out the form on this page to get started today. A life is at stake and recovery is possible. Don't wait!

Outpatient Drug Rehab programs range in intensity from programs that offer little more than education about addiction and how drugs affect the individual and group or individual counseling to programs offering intensive day treatments similar to those offered in a residential setting.
An outpatient drug rehab may be the best choice for an addict whose addiction is not as severe as one who needs “round the clock” care. Addicts who do not have an extensive history of addiction and/or relapse, individuals who are not suffering from active withdrawal symptoms, those who have very strong support from family and friends, individuals who are maintaining employment and whose income is essential for family survival (i.e. single parents) and those who have already completed an inpatient drug rehab program but are looking for continued support may find that an outpatient drug rehab best fits their needs. Typically, an addict’s circumstances will be evaluated so that a specialist can design a program or fine tune an existing program to best meets the addict’s needs and increase the addict’s chances for success.
An outpatient drug rehab program is generally long-term, lasting several months, a year or even longer. An addict will generally go to the addiction treatment facility for classes, group meetings, individual counseling or other services, including groups tailored for men or women, life skills groups, spirituality groups, drug education, socialization skills, drug screening, and legal assistance. Programs, classes and services may be offered at various times of day, during the evening and on weekends.
Outpatient drug rehabs offer a viable alternative to residential drug rehab for the individual whose addiction and circumstances are not so severe as to require the intensive, highly structured environment of a residential setting. When looking at any drug rehab program, the individual’s needs must be “matched” with the drug rehab to achieve the best possible results; a return to a healthy, productive, drug and alcohol free life.Help: Click here to receive out-patient drug rehab assistance
