Outpatient Addiction Treatment
However, a mild substance abuse problem caught in the early phases can often be successfully treated in an outpatient rehab program.
What is Outpatient Rehab?
An outpatient rehab program offers drug and alcohol treatment sessions that can be scheduled during various times throughout the week. This schedule allows patients to continue with their regular responsibilities and continue living at home, but they are required to check into treatment at their allotted times for counseling and medication.
“Treatment was a blessing. To be able to actually look at why I used rather than figuring out how [to use] on a daily basis taught me about who I am.”
Individuals with a strong will to succeed in recovery and who have a committed, disciplined approach may benefit from an outpatient treatment program.

Benefits of Outpatient Rehab
For mild to moderate addictions, outpatient rehab is usually an ideal treatment choice. These programs are more accessible and flexible than an inpatient program.
Some of the biggest reasons to consider outpatient rehab include:
- Affordability. Because you’re able to live at home during outpatient treatment, you don’t have to pay the costs of lodging at an inpatient facility — making it more affordable than inpatient.
Flexibility. Outpatient programs can usually work around your schedule. This is beneficial for those who feel like they can’t leave their job or family for an extended period of time.
Access to family. Throughout the outpatient rehab program, family involvement and support is emphasized, as loved ones can help encourage you to stay on the path to sobriety.
