Outpatient Program

If you are struggling with a severe addiction to certain substances such as heroin or oxycodone or if you have completed treatment before and suffered a relapse, it is typically best to seek treatment at an inpatient residential treatment center. In these facilities, there are increased opportunities for essential treatment services such as medically assisted detox and assistance with withdrawal.

However, if you have a mild issue with substance abuse, if caught in the early phases, it can often be managed at an outpatient rehab program. Suppose you are motivated to stop using but have restrictions such as family obligations or work obligations that do not allow you to easily attend treatment in an inpatient setting. In that case, outpatient rehab can offer essential flexibility to ensure treatment is possible. 

Outpatient addiction treatment programs in Woodland Hills provide drug and alcohol treatment scheduled during the week. This schedule allows you to still seek addiction therapy but continue to live at home. You and your loved ones must understand the differences between these programs before selecting a treatment program. 

Learning The Difference

What's the Difference Between
Inpatient & Outpatient Treatment?

Inpatient and outpatient rehab programs both focus equally on addiction treatment; however, each has unique qualities and benefits. Inpatient rehab programs are intensive programs that require you to “live” at the treatment center for the duration of your addiction treatment program. These programs are often used to treat severe addictions or to address situations where you may have completed addiction treatment previously but suffered a relapse.

An inpatient rehab program, also called residential treatment, will require you to check into the treatment facility. You will stay on-site and work with addiction treatment staff to overcome your addiction with the benefit of twenty-four-hour emotional and medical support. Inpatient programs typically have a higher success rate as the treatment environment removes opportunities for using or relapsing during the treatment process. Most residential programs last between one and six months. The duration of your stay will depend on your treatment needs. Inpatient programs are often more expensive than outpatient programs; however, the benefits afforded at inpatient treatment are substantial.

Outpatient rehab programs in Los Angeles allow you to seek addiction treatment services while still living at home. Attending an outpatient rehab program is often more affordable than inpatient residential programs, and the structure of the program allows you to maintain more elements of your everyday routine. You will attend therapy between five and seven days per week, depending on the outpatient program’s intensity. The length and type of counseling sessions will depend both on the program and on your individual treatment needs. Outpatient and intensive outpatient programs also typically last longer than residential inpatient programs. Due to their less intensive structure, it may take additional time for you to meet your therapeutic goals. Most outpatient rehab programs last three months to over one year. During this time, you will be required to attend all scheduled therapy sessions throughout the week. Therapy sessions in an outpatient treatment generally consist of individual and group counseling, education about substance addiction, and time spent learning and practicing new coping strategies to help you adapt to life after addiction. If you are unable to attend (or choose not to attend) daily counseling sessions, you might be referred to an inpatient residential program that may better suit your needs.

Although detox is most commonly considered the first step in residential treatment programs, patients with mild to moderate withdrawal symptoms can take advantage of outpatient detoxification programs. Outpatient detox is safe and effective and typically takes less time than inpatient detox procedures.

How we can help you

The Benefits of Our Outpatient
Drug Rehab in Los Angeles

Seeking outpatient drug rehab can be beneficial if you have a mild substance abuse problem or if this is your first time seeking addiction treatment. If inpatient treatment is difficult due to family or personal obligations that limit your ability to be away from home, a Los Angeles outpatient rehab program could help you access the addiction treatment you need to start down the road to recovery. Our outpatient rehab in Los Angeles provides the same evidence-based addiction treatment provided in our residential settings, with the flexibility and freedom you need to start and complete an addiction treatment program successfully.

Another benefit to outpatient addiction treatment is its integration into many aftercare programs. Once you complete an inpatient residential program, you will begin aftercare. Aftercare involves a variety of ongoing medical treatments and continuous addiction therapy. Aftercare is essential to lasting, long-term sobriety. Therapy that happens as part of an aftercare program is part of many outpatient addiction treatment programs. Finally, outpatient rehab often allows for an easier transition from addiction treatment to your new life after substance abuse. Because you remain at home and in your community throughout the treatment process, you learn how to integrate what you have learned in treatment into your day to day life from the very beginning of your addiction treatment program. For some, this is easier than trying to do so after returning home from an inpatient residential program.
