outpatient rehabWhether your drug or alcohol use is mild or severe, getting the right treatment can help you put an end to it, so you can move on to enjoy your best life. How do you know which program is right for you? Considering the severity of your substance use and the level of support you need to stay on track can help you determine which type of treatment you need. If you can manage your cravings and have a stable home environment, you may wish to try a partial hospitalization program.

With our partial hospitalization program, you can enjoy sleeping in the comfort of your own bed each night while you attend treatment sessions during the day. Call us at 855.730.8825 to get the help you need now through our outpatient rehab program in a beautiful Kansas City setting.

What Is an Outpatient Rehab Program?

An outpatient rehab program provides a convenient option for people struggling with a substance use disorder but cannot commit to a residential program. With outpatient treatment, you still receive the support and accountability you need to end your addiction but with more flexibility:

  • You receive therapy, medication, and support at the treatment center to help keep you focused on your recovery.
  • You attend treatment sessions throughout the week while continuing to live at home.
  • Your required time commitment may slower taper down as you make progress with your recovery.
  • You can still keep up with work, school, home life, and other responsibilities.

Even within the range of outpatient rehab programs, there are multiple levels of intensity. Each program focuses on counseling, support, and education, but some provide more intensive treatment while others allow for more independence. The right treatment for you will be based on how far along you are in your recovery experience and how well you manage your cravings and triggers. Your program should meet your unique needs as an individual.

How Do You Know If an Outpatient Rehab Is Right for You?

While outpatient rehab offers a convenient option for addiction treatment, it is not right for everyone. People best suited for an outpatient rehab program include:

  • Those with mild addiction problems
  • People new to drug or alcohol dependence
  • People with good self-discipline
  • Those committed to ending their drug or alcohol abuse
  • Those who have been through residential treatment in the past but still need additional support to prevent relapse

To determine whether outpatient treatment is the best option for your needs, we welcome you to reach out to Sunflower Wellness Retreat today at 855.730.8825.

Types of Outpatient Programs

You will find multiple levels of care within outpatient addiction treatment programs. The following are your outpatient rehab options from most intensive to least:

  • Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) provide the same structure of residential treatment, but you return home each evening. You may be required to attend five to seven days each week, depending on the level of support you need. In PHP, you still receive individual counseling, group therapy, family counseling, and holistic services. Although other types of outpatient programs enable you to continue to keep up with work and home responsibilities, this may be a bit more challenging in PHP. The intensive nature of the program requires a major commitment for you to focus intently on your treatment.
  • Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) are slightly less intensive when compared to a PHP. You still attend frequent sessions with your care team, but as you make progress in your recovery, your schedule gets lighter, and you take on more of your typical routine.
  • Outpatient programs (OP) provide optimal flexibility and independence. You will have a much lighter schedule of treatment sessions, so this type of outpatient rehab program is best for those with mild addiction.
  • After you finish your outpatient program, you may transition to an aftercare program. These programs provide continued recovery support after you return to your normal day-to-day life at work and home. These programs help you stay connected to your recovery support system for the added guidance and focus you need while building your new clean life.

As you can see, there are various outpatient treatment options to meet your needs throughout your recovery journey. Reach out to your local treatment center to find out which outpatient program may be right for you.
