Outpatient Addiction Treatment

Treatment for substance-use disorder while you stay at home

We may recommend outpatient treatment for adult or teen patients as a first step in addiction treatment. In outpatient care, patients work through personal treatment plans without having to stay in an overnight facility.

Outpatient care also is the next step in care for patients who are successful in more intensive treatment, such as our Intensive Outpatient Program, which also is out of the hospital but incorporates more structured group therapy.

You may be a good candidate for outpatient treatment if you:

  • Aren’t currently being treated for additional behavioral health disorders, such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder
  • Currently use relatively low amounts of addictive substances
  • Have a stable, supportive home environment
  • Have few or no additional medical conditions that require treatment

What to expect from outpatient treatment

Outpatient Addiction TreatmentTreatment starts with a thorough assessment, which includes both a physical exam and a psychosocial exam. Next, our addiction team will work with you and your loved ones to create a personalized plan for treatment and recovery.

You’ll attend weekly group counseling and/or individual therapy, depending on your specific needs. And you’ll consult with one of our doctors as issues arise relating to your recovery.

Your care plan may include detoxification and medication-assisted treatment if needed.

After the initial treatment phase, we encourage you to continue the recovery process by taking advantage of community education and support resources for addiction. This includes our own programs and those offered by various 12-step organizations.
