Is outpatient drug rehab right for me?In earlier days, drug rehab was mostly a 28-day endeavor where you were locked on a ward with other addicts and alcoholics. As more information becomes available, treatment methods have become more tailored to meet an individual’s needs. Sometimes there are reasons why people can’t or needn’t go to an inpatient treatment center. There may be job or family factors preventing one from leaving home for an extended period. There may be an insurance issue. And even though everyone could benefit from inpatient treatment, it could be that in the earlier stages of addiction it may not be necessary. For these individuals, outpatient drug rehab may be the solution.
A good option for after inpatient treatment
Outpatient drug rehab programs are most beneficial to those who have already completed an inpatient program. Returning to the stressors of life back home can be scary. An outpatient drug rehab can keep you on track with your recovery plan and help prevent relapse. Easing yourself back into daily life is more comfortable when you can attend weekly counseling which will keep the skills you learned in inpatient treatment fresh in your head. Most drug and alcohol treatment facilities include and outpatient program in their continuum of care for after a patient leaves their facility. Although groups such as AA and NA are also beneficial for finding support after treatment, it is important to make sure your recovery process is long term and in order to have the highest level of success.
Taking that first step
While you don’t receive the benefit of complete immersion in recovery principles, you still may benefit from the educational aspect that outpatient drug-free treatment offers. A support group may be of little benefit if one doesn’t understand what people are talking about. A modicum of preparation for the obstacles ahead can also make a big difference. Outpatient drug rehab may be the added step needed to push one off the fence to start taking responsibility for addressing his problem.
