Who should seek outpatient rehab?
Outpatient addiction treatment is ideal for individuals with mild to moderate addictions who are looking to take control of the disease in its beginning phases. These programs are not suitable for those who need a monitored detoxification process or who have tried and failed to overcome addiction before.
Inpatient rehab programs are necessary for those recovering from substance additions with an intense detoxification and withdrawal process, like heroin or oxycodone. Similarly, inpatient services can be better for people whose addiction is part of a more extensive system of disorders, such as depression, anxiety or trauma.
What does outpatient treatment include?
The programs at Harmony Outpatient Center in Delray Beach vary in intensity level and program design. However, all plans include a combination of counseling, education, tools for living a sober life, and a support network. Specific therapy or treatment methods depend on the individual and the severity of the addiction.
Unlike the full-time commitment required by inpatient recovery settings, outpatient treatment sessions are scheduled throughout the week, allowing for more tailored treatment. For example, if your family needs you home for dinner and your children’s bedtime, then you may attend sessions during the day.If your job requires daily attendance during regular working hours, you can go to your program in the evenings.
Harmony requires attendance for all counseling sessions, group treatment events, and meetings, and to receive medication, if applicable. For more information on the programming and services we provide, contact one of our dedicated treatment specialists.
WHAT WE DO BEST
Why choose outpatient addiction treatment?
Outpatient programs have three main benefits that inpatient addiction rehabilitation services do not. Keep in mind, these benefits only apply if this is the appropriate treatment course for you. Long-term addictions, addictions combined with other disorders, or addictions to substances that include intense withdrawal symptoms are often better treated at an inpatient facility.
With outpatient addiction treatment, you don’t have to leave your career or your family for an extended period. With program options during both the day and the evening, you can find treatment plans that fit into your busy schedule. Though addiction recovery requires serious attention and commitment, it doesn’t mean that the rest of your life must be put on hold.
Participants in outpatient rehab do not live or eat at the facility. Living at home keeps treatment costs lower because there are no fees for room or board. These money-saving options combine with the financial help of most medical insurance plans to make addiction treatment more accessible to everyone.
Addiction affects more than the individual with the substance abuse problem. Addiction has a sharp impact on the entire family, and everyone close to the individual. For that reason, outpatient addiction services involve the whole family and support network.
Including the family in therapy, education courses, and treatment plans helps cultivate a stronger support system for the rest of the long path toward recovery. The integration of family therapy and support network skills programs helps family members work through their experiences as well and move forward better equipped to support. Inclusion encourages the healing of damaged relationships and the creation of healthy boundaries moving forward.
Harmony Outpatient Center in Delray Beach isn’t for everyone. However, if these benefits speak to your needs and address any hesitations you may have to begin an addiction treatment program, please contact us today to see if it’s a good fit for you.
What types of outpatient addiction rehab programs exist?
Specific recovery programs depend on the substance abused, the severity of the addiction, and the current stage of recovery. That said, outpatient rehab treatment designs fit within three major categories.
Day programs, sometimes called Partial Hospitalization Progarm (PHP), involve the highest level of care and the most intense program structure. Participants meet five to seven days each week for up to six hours a day. Though individuals do not live at the facility, day programs require a significant time commitment and considerable energy, which can affect work or school.
While at the outpatient therapy center, patients will attend traditional individual therapy sessions, group counseling, biofeedback sessions to help understand one’s involuntary functions and participate in other forms of therapy, like art or music. Treatment plans are comprehensive and intense. After each day, individuals return home to their families or a sober living house.
Sober living homes provide extra support when a family is not available or helpful. These homes have varying levels of support options for individuals to select. Those considering a sober living home can choose from the following options:
● Peer-run programs are, as the name implies, sober homes that are run democratically through house meetings and self-help programs.
● Monitored sober living houses have a manager or staff member on the premises to keep residents accountable and on track.
● Clinically supervised sober housing options have licensed staff on property to assist in life skills training and provide additional addiction treatment services.
● Clinically integrated programs offer the most intense form of sober housing. They involve clinical therapy services at home, along with life skills training and strict accountability requirements.
The primary difference between an inpatient recovery program and a day program with a sober living house component is the need for a detoxification period. Inpatient programs include supervision and support as participants experience withdrawals from their abused substances. Outpatient programs work with individuals who need help quitting their addiction but do not require the same intensity of physical detoxification.
Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)
Intensive outpatient programs provide a more flexible treatment schedule for those who need to work or keep up with their daily obligations. Typically, day or evening programs are available. Despite the more adaptable program organization, it is still crucial that IOP patients willingly dedicate their time and are genuinely committed to change.
Treatment plans in intensive outpatient programs include defined, measurable milestones to track progress. As these milestones are successfully met, the time required each week reduces. Typically, individuals participating in an IOP begin with meetings and appointments four times each week.
Much like the day programs, IOP treatment includes individual counseling sessions, group therapy, relapse prevention education, and time spent with a recovery support group or at 12-step meetings. The typical time commitment for these sessions is a few hours.
Continuing Care Programs
Continuing care programs offer ongoing resources to guarantee one’s commitment to sober living for the long term. These often come in the form of groups like Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. However, groups often exist for a specific defining characteristic, age, or substance abused. For example, continuing care groups for only men, women, older adults, teens, health care professionals, those suffering from opioid addiction, or alcoholics are common.
These programs are most helpful for people who have already been through the addiction recovery process. The meetings are a place to process feelings or experiences and to be reminded of the tools they were equipped with in their programs. However, the meetings lack the personal focus and tailored treatment components.
