For some people, taking 4 weeks off of work or caring for their family just isn’t an option. Luckily for these people, outpatient programs can help guide them through detox and recovery while they continue working and living at home. Roughly 80% of treatment facilities have some sort of outpatient care. With outpatient detox programs, it’s important to find one that fits you work and life schedule. Depending on the severity of the addiction, these programs can take up several hours of the day multiple days of the week. Make sure you are able to keep the commitment to getting sober once you make it.

About Outpatient Programs
Types Of Outpatient Programs
Each outpatient program offers different services and not all are the same. Different addictions of mental health issues have different care needs, so make sure you inform your outpatient facility of your situation with 100% honesty. These programs typically cost less than inpatient care, as they don’t offer the same amenities and close personal attention as inpatient residential facilities. Some programs may only offer detox assistance and drug education, while others may offer individual or group counseling. Others may have intensive day treatment, which is comparable to residential treatment in many aspects, but allows you live at home with your family while you get clean and sober.
The difficulties of outpatient treatment should also be made clear. Because of the lack of 24 hour supervision, it is much easier for someone going through outpatient care to relapse back into old habit and old substance abuse tendencies. There is nothing stopping someone in outpatient care from stopping by the liquor store on the way home, or from revisiting anything that may be a trigger for substance abuse. If the addiction or mental health issue is severe, outpatient care may not be the best option. Sometimes the only way to get clean is to make a 100% commitment to inpatient care. If the addict or mental health patient is functioning, holding down a job, or has people at home counting on them, then outpatient care may be the right choice or the only choice. In these cases it’s important to have a strong support system in place to help curb cravings and tendencies to go back into old habits.
