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.

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.
