Frequently Asked Questions
Is Outpatient Drug Rehab Effective?
Yes, outpatient treatment is effective as long as certain criteria are met. Specifically, outpatient treatment should be tailored to your individual needs. Not everyone who enters addiction treatment will go straight into outpatient services. When you enter treatment, you will go through an intake and assessment process that’s designed to determine the best level of care for you.
An intake specialist will use a set of criteria designed by the American Society of Addiction Medicine. These set criteria include six factors that are intended to help clinicians determine your needs and appropriate level of care. Outpatient treatment is effective for people who are determined to be ready to live on their own.
Do I Need Outpatient Treatment?
You may need outpatient or intensive outpatient treatment if you have a substance use disorder that requires the full continuum of care in addiction treatment. Treatment often starts with medical detox or inpatient services. Unfortunately, short-term intensive care is usually not enough to effectively lead to long-term recovery. If you’ve gone through higher levels of care, outpatient or intensive outpatient drug rehab can help you get to the root of substance use issues.
Outpatient is the lowest level of care in addiction treatment, but it’s often an important step in treatment between high levels of care and complete independence. Through outpatient treatment, you can learn how to take on real-world responsibilities and challenges while you still have clinical support to fall back on.
What Therapies Are Included in an Intensive Outpatient Program?
Outpatient and intensive outpatient treatment are levels of care where you will dive into clinical therapies. Therapies will depend on your specific treatment plan, which you will make with your therapist. Your plan will be tailored to your needs, but there are a few commonly recommended therapies like individual, group, and family therapy. You may also go through behavioral therapies, which is a category of treatment options that center around treating behavioral health issues.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the most commonly recommended therapy options because of its usefulness in creating relapse prevention plans.
