What are the Benefits of an Outpatient Addiction Treatment Program?

Table of Contents

There are many studies and articles out there who highlight the many benefits of attending an inpatient drug rehab. Many times you will read these articles that cover the extensive benefits of residential treatment and success rates in terms of completion, however, many of those articles or studies fail to cover the crucial period once a person leaves an inpatient setting.

Attending an outpatient program after an inpatient drug rehab, helps recovering addicts remain focused during those difficult months and years after being in an inpatient setting for treatment. A strong outpatient treatment center knows that achieving long-term recovery means treating more than the physical aspects of addiction. An outpatient program like Multi Concept Recovery treats the physical, psychological, spiritual, emotional and physiological needs of all our clients at an individualized level.

What are the Benefits of an Inpatient Drug Rehab?

Inpatient drug treatment programs offer many benefits such as structure, routine, 24/7 care, and a safe environment away from drugs & alcohol. Programs such as these leave little time for the individual to obsess over their drug of choice by providing a consistent daily schedule filled with therapy groups and individual sessions that allow the client to focus solely on their recovery. One of the main purposes of inpatient treatment is for the individual to focus completely on his or her own recovery. This is where you can learn alternative ways to handle stress and improve mental and physical health. Tools such as yoga, massage, exercise, and proper nutrition.

What Happens After Inpatient Rehab? What Types Of Continued Services Exist?

Outpatient addiction treatment programs work best when the client previously attends an inpatient program, however, attending an inpatient rehab is not a requirement of an outpatient program like Multi Concept Recovery in Burbank, CA. There are those clients who have completed an inpatient program and are aiming to continue their journey of recovery while re-acclimating to their new life as a sober person. This adjustment period can cause triggers that can lead to a relapse, which is why an outpatient program is suggested after rehab.

There are also those who cannot attend an inpatient program due to financial limitations or life’s obligations that do not allow for the time away from home that an inpatient rehab requires.  Outpatient programs also tend to be more affordable as inpatient programs making them easier for individuals to access them. Individuals need to be held accountable for their choices and regular check-ups can help encourage healthy choices. This allows clients to stay on track and continue on the road to recovery.

An Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) helps people continue recovery and therapy after detox and inpatient treatment. Even though this drug treatment is intense, it is flexible and can be done part-time to allow for work and family schedules. Here at Multi Concept Recovery, we offer both day and night options to accommodate your schedule when seeking help for substance abuse. While attending an IOP, clients typically live at home or in a sober living environment and attend treatment throughout the week based on their individual treatment plan. Typically, after a client has attended intensive outpatient for a period of time, the clinical team will decide when to step you down to regular outpatient treatment which is typically 1-2 days a week, as opposed to the 3-5 days a week during IOP.

Another suggested continued service is one that is typically free. Support groups, such as 12 step meetings, offer support for general and specific problems. Those coming out of an inpatient drug treatment program should make sure to find a support group that works for them. These groups often teach methods to aid during recovery and enable individuals to own their decisions and make healthy choices. Individuals coming out of inpatient treatment may face boredom and loneliness, which in the past caused individuals to turn to drugs and alcohol.
