Outpatient Drug Rehab

Making the decision to remove drugs and alcohol from your life is a pivotal first step toward recovery. However, recovery is more than just one decision—it is a continual process of self-improvement and positive life changes. A drug rehab is a wonderful place to learn valuable skills and continue to grow in your recovery.
There are several different kinds of substance abuse treatments including medical detox, residential inpatient, partial hospitalization programs, and outpatient clinics. Depending on the severity of your substance abuse, you should determine which level of treatment is most appropriate for you. While one type of treatment is not necessarily better than another, there are differences to look at when determining the best course for yourself.

What Does Outpatient Drug Rehab Entail?

Outpatient drug rehab involves daily therapy, including individual therapy sessions, group counseling, and other recovery related activities. Those who attend an outpatient facility continue to live either at home or in a sober living facility while they receive treatment. This allows clients to take care of any home responsibilities such as children and families. Those enrolled in school or currently employed will not have to interrupt their daily schedules, as most outpatient centers will work around your schedule. Most programs also offer weekend or evening therapy to accommodate those with limited daytime availability.
It is usually suggested that you attend outpatient treatment more regularly towards the beginning of treatment. As you progress through your therapy, sessions usually decrease in intensity and frequency. This is known as “stepping down” in most drug rehabs. When this “step down” process occurs depends on how your treatment is progressing.
Outpatient treatment isn’t always the right choice for everyone. Returning home at the end of the day, or working throughout the day, leaves a lot of opportunity to revert back to old behaviors. Outpatient treatment requires a strong commitment to sobriety and solid outside support system. Outpatient treatment may not be right for you if:

  • You have strong urges to use drug and/or alcohol. Outpatient drug rehab works best for those who have a support system they can reach for when outside of treatment.
  • You struggle with showing up to therapy sessions. The only way outpatient therapy will work is if you show up and participate. If you struggle to keep appointments, you may find that a more intensive level of treatment will work for you best.
  • You are severely addicted. If you’ve had an addiction for a long time or addiction has created serious consequences in your life, outpatient is probably not right for you.

Outpatient is a great option for those that need flexibility, but also want to better themselves and their recovery. Royal Life Centers offers one of the most multifaceted, comprehensive outpatient programs in the nation. We offer in-depth, intensive group therapy, individual therapy, along with a multitude of other treatment modalities.
