What Is Outpatient Treatment?

Addiction Advocates offers outpatient care for drug and alcohol addiction. Being an outpatient means staying and sleeping at your home to receive your treatment programmes rather than staying at a treatment centre.

Many are drawn to outpatient care as it offers flexibility and fits around their life. You can choose to access outpatient care in different ways. For some treatment plans, you will visit the centre every day, return home in the evening, and return again the next day. You also can attend therapy sessions for a few hours a day or a few times a week – it all depends on what level of support you need.

Outpatient treatment doesn’t cost as much as inpatient care; a big plus for people on a budget.

Who Benefits From Outpatient Treatment? 

Outpatient drug rehab suits people who have a mild or early-stage alcohol or drugs problem that doesn’t require intensive residential support. This type of care is ideal for people with family commitments who need to keep working or have a busy life, making it impractical to commit to residential treatment.

Home-based rehab is ideal for people who have a stable life and those who have encouragement from family and friends. If you’re tackling any mental health problems alongside a drug or alcohol addiction, we advise you to become an inpatient to benefit from 24-hour support.

Outpatient appointments such as talking therapies can take place over the phone or at a venue to suit you.

What Are The Alternatives To Outpatient Care? 

Inpatient rehabs are the best option if you have a severe or longstanding drug or alcohol addiction. If you become an inpatient, you will stay and sleep at a treatment facility, receiving intensive support to help you get off alcohol or drugs.

You’ll undoubtedly need a drug or alcohol detox, and we offer that at all our centres. Don’t try detoxing at home on your own. It’s tough, and you need medical supervision. Doctors and addiction therapists need to look after you throughout the detoxification process, closely monitoring your physical and mental health and withdrawal symptoms.

Types Of Outpatient Treatment 

Group Therapy

Learning from fellow recovering drug or alcohol users can bring massive benefits to the recovery process. Trying group therapy may feel strange initially, and sharing personal experiences with strangers may not come naturally. But everyone is in the same boat; all determined to live a drug or alcohol-free life.

Many people form new bonds and friendships from group therapy due to a shared understanding and acceptance. Sharing your personal experiences can be very cathartic and there’s no pressure to speak. Just stepping through the door is a big achievement.

Family Therapy

Having support from family members can work wonders for your recovery. Bringing your close family together in therapy sessions can help repair any problems caused by a drug or alcohol addiction. You or your family may have had issues that drove you to alcohol or drugs in the first place. Family therapy can be very eye-opening. Often people learn more about family history and dynamics or individual emotions, leading to a better understanding.

Involving your family in the recovery process is an integral part of relapse prevention as they’ll discover ways to motivate you to stay clean.

1-2-1 Addiction Counselling

At Addiction Advocates, we offer a varied range of psychotherapy tailored to you. These therapies look at the negative thoughts, feelings and behaviours surrounding addiction and help you change your outlook to one that’s more positive, happier and balanced.

Treatment options include counselling methods such as cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, psychodynamic treatment and acceptance and commitment therapy.

Alternative And Complementary Therapies

Stress often leads people to abuse drugs and alcohol, using substances as a coping mechanism. Using alternative and complementary therapies can help you stay focused, lessen stress and anxiety levels, reducing your desire to use drugs or alcohol.

As an outpatient, you can access acupuncture, yoga, meditation, hypnotherapy, reflexology and reiki sessions. These types of therapies also improve your well-being and physical health.

12-Step Recovery Programmes

Following 12-Step recovery programmes such as those run by AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and NA (Narcotics Anonymous) help people work towards milestones in their recovery. We operate 12-step models ourselves and in conjunction with AA and NA.

How Beneficial Is Outpatient Treatment?

Outpatient treatment is the ideal way to access drug or alcohol rehab if you want to stay living at home. Outpatient treatment benefits highly motivated people to attend support groups and therapy meetings and manage their own time.

When considering inpatient and outpatient treatment, it’s essential to consider your mental health. Suppose you’re having a tricky time managing anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder or stress in addition to a substance abuse problem. In that case, you’ll need the intensive support that inpatient rehab gives you.

You can also complete an alcohol or drug detox as an outpatient, spending a short time with us and then returning home.
