Rehab or Work

Work is an important part of any successful life. It’s understandable that leaving a job to seek treatment might cause apprehension. Even in the throes of addiction most people will still try and continue a normal work life. Depending on how bad the addiction is, it becomes increasingly more difficult to find a balance between the two.

Fortunately, many programs offer outpatient treatment that works around your daily schedule. Outpatient treatment is a great alternative for those not able to commit to a full-time inpatient program. Not having to choose between rehab or work can mean the difference between getting help, and not getting help.

Outpatient Treatment Options

Outpatient treatment is best suited for someone with a mild to moderate substance abuse issue. Someone suffering from a severe addiction is better suited in an intensive inpatient program. Many employers are willing to work with you so that you can attend treatment, get well, and ultimately return to work. As uncomfortable as it can be to have the conversation with your supervisor, you might be surprised at how compassionate they are. There is no shame in asking for help. In fact, it takes a lot of courage to admit when you need help.

Different programs will offer different variations on their outpatient programming. Some will require that you attend a specific schedule of therapy, while others will be very flexible. In general, outpatient programs offer the same therapies as more intensive programs. The program that works for you will depend on your individual needs. Consulting with an addiction specialist or doctor before choosing a facility can help you make a more informed decision.
