Outpatient Drug Rehab

After completing an inpatient treatment program, those in recovery may need further assistance in a supportive environment, such as outpatient drug rehab. Outpatient drug programs allow clients to access the support they need in recovery, while also permitting them greater flexibility and independence. Transcend Recovery Community provides great programs and treatments for those in need.

What Are Outpatient Drug Rehabs?

Inpatient treatment programs are often implemented in a more restrictive setting, such as a hospital or designated treatment center. Clients are not permitted to leave the facility unless there are staff-facilitated group outings and activities. This treatment option is an appropriate fit for people who need stabilization or are not yet able to function independently.

Outpatient programs are typically recommended after inpatient treatment to fortify the client’s recovery. Outpatient treatment is appropriate for people with serious substance abuse issues, as well as those with milder to moderate addictions. People in outpatient programs do not stay in a treatment center and generally reside at home or in a sober living. There are many outpatient program types available, dependent upon factors such as the client’s drug of choice, what stage of recovery they are in, or the severity of their substance use disorder.

Does Transcend Provide Outpatient Drug Rehab?

Through a partnership with our sister company, The Heights Treatment, Transcend offers a comprehensive outpatient drug rehab service to clients in need. Our goal is to support a client’s progress in sobriety through effective treatment implementation. 

We believe that understanding the root cause of any problem is key to finding a solution. Transcend aims to discover the underlying issues that lead our clients to their addiction. After understanding the trauma at the center of the problem, we are then able to formulate and execute a plan to provide clients with an opportunity for long-term sobriety.

Even with extensive outpatient treatment plans in place, it is vital for a client to be invested in the treatment process. Transcend has assembled a team of qualified individuals equipped with the knowledge of how to stimulate recovery participation in clients. We have found clients to be more successful in their efforts when they are motivated to engage in their recovery.

What Kind of Treatments Occur in an Outpatient Drug Rehab?

Clients needing outpatient treatment require varying levels of care. It takes a targeted evaluation effort to determine a client’s needs. Transcend currently offers three different levels of outpatient treatment. Each program provides common services, such as in-person discussions, individual therapy sessions, and group sessions with peers. Our programs also address additional topics such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Shame Resilience Theory, Trauma-Informed Yoga, recovery skills, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. 

A partial hospitalization program (PHP), also known as day treatment, is suitable for those requiring more structure in their day. A PHP provides treatment reminiscent to the degree of inpatient treatment; however, clients return to their home or sober housing at the end of the day. 

An intensive outpatient program (IOP) is a program that is a step down from a PHP. The weekly time commitment and frequency of an IOP are less than that of a PHP. IOP is appropriate for those with a decent grasp on their sobriety and provides an opportunity for clients to resume their daily lives outside of treatment.

Finally, a general outpatient program, which acts as a step-down, is suitable for those who have completed inpatient treatment or previous outpatient treatments. Traditional outpatient is the least restrictive type of substance abuse care, providing a significant amount of freedom to clients. General outpatient is appropriate for clients who are ready to fully integrate back into society and manage life outside of treatment (i.e. work, school, family, etc.). 

How Long Is Typical Treatment?

Transcend considers client needs and individual circumstances to be of the highest priority when discussing treatment options. With each client’s requirements being personalized, there is no set duration for how long outpatient treatment lasts. 

The general suggestion from professionals is that no program be less than 90 days in length; however, some people are in outpatient treatment for over a year. At around 90 days, the brain begins to recover from the damage inflicted by the individual’s substance use. 90 days also provide clients with enough time to form healthy habits and to practice new life skills they have obtained during treatment. 

Statistically, most people in recovery who relapse do so within the first few months of sobriety. In an effort to create relapse prevention, Transcend provides continuous support to our clients as they endure one of the most challenging periods of the recovery process. 

What Are the Benefits of an Outpatient Rehab?

Outpatient treatment is beneficial for a multitude of different reasons. Some of those include:

  • A steady network of support: Whether choosing a general outpatient treatment, a PHP, or IOP, a person in recovery does not have to go through this process alone. Our programs provide clients with an opportunity to build a solid recovery community in their lives. 
  • Tailored treatment plans: As recovery varies between individuals, it is essential to understand the unique needs and conditions of each client. Through in-depth assessment, Transcend forms a targeted plan that provides the client with the most opportunities for growth and success. 
  • Ability to maintain a life outside of treatment: While in an outpatient program, clients live independently from a treatment center, whether that be in their own homes or a transitional housing arrangement. This independence provides clients with the ability to hold a job, engage in social life, and attend to family needs.
