What is Outpatient Treatment?

At Continuum Recovery Center, our holistic outpatient rehab is an approach to substance abuse treatment that offers you support, education and therapy while minimizing disruption to your daily life. You’ll attend groups and classes throughout the week but return to your own home at the end of each day. Our programs are designed to work best for someone with mild addiction issues, or someone who has already completed an inpatient program and is ready to step down in their level of care. Our talented treatment professionals will help you recover from your addiction and heal in body, mind, and spirit while keeping your loved ones and support systems close by.

Our outpatient programs range from a few hours up to to 35 hours of recovery work each week, depending on the level of care you need. This is a win-win for anyone who has a job or family, but wants individual and group therapy sessions as well as other holistic modalities. 

Detox is generally not included in the services, so clients are expected to be physically sober when they seek outpatient care. Additionally, outpatient treatment does not include the 24-hour monitoring of residential or inpatient treatment, which people often need when first getting clean and/or sober. 

You can choose the level of intensity and duration that works for you, often at a fraction of the cost of traditional inpatient or residential programs.

Addiction Therapy & Counseling:
Healing from the Inside Out

Our clients receive the best addiction treatment available. Our boutique outpatient treatment approach utilizes therapists that are educated at a Masters-level or beyond. Our specialists on staff are specifically trained in the areas of substance abuse, trauma, co-occurring disorders, and holistic practices in Eastern and Western medicines.

Individualized Approach

Each treatment program includes varied therapies to help ground every individual, from the moment they complete the drug or alcohol detoxification process to aftercare. Because drug and alcohol addiction impact people differently, we create a program that meets each person exactly where he or she is in their recovery. As needs change, so too do the recommended steps making every journey toward sobriety, no matter the timeline, a successful approach.

For some, a program may begin with Intensive Outpatient (IOP). For others, an Outpatient program that requires two days of group therapy on site provides the right amount of support. This allows a client the time needed to maintain employment and balance a busy lifestyle while living at home.

Continuum Recovery Center clients experience real options in addiction therapies and counseling: Together, we create the right treatment for you or your loved one.

Individual Therapy

By spending one-on-one time with each client, our renowned mental health practitioners can adjust treatment plans according to patient progress and duration of substance abuse. Individual therapy is essential for uncovering the root of addictive behaviors and providing a general emotional health assessment. Other matters of consideration include the potential diagnosis of co-occurring disorders, and other circumstances that may have contributed to alcohol or drug addiction, such as genetic predisposition or environmental factors related to use.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Proven to be an effective tool in the treatment of drug and alcohol addictions, CBT utilizes positive thought patterns, attitudes, and beliefs about oneself to transform unhealthy behaviors. The foundation of this treatment method has been developed and perfected by some of the greatest minds in psychology, and its merits continue to shine in those we treat. Here’s why.

Drug abuse tends to put the client in a negative mindset that breeds negative thoughts, intensifies feelings of guilt and shame, and encourages suicidal tendencies. Having a positive mindset about yourself and your recovery will help through the hard times, when sobriety seems impossible. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy provides procedures for adopting healthy coping mechanisms to handling stressful situations like cravings, triggers, and depression.

Holistic Healing Practices

Addiction recovery, in its truest sense, includes reworking mind, body and spirit into healthier balance. Referred to as holistic treatment, it involves a three-part approach to address physiological, emotional, and spiritual needs.

To complement our full suite of traditional methodologies, we also offer:

  • Meditation
  • Yoga
  • Tai chi
  • Music therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Fitness
  • Nutrition information
  • Naturopathic remedies (IV therapy, supplements, education)

We know that addiction recovery doesn’t stop the moment you graduate from your program and become a thought leader as a member of our alumni. Our holistic alternative therapies are meant for you to learn at Continuum Recovery and continue to enjoy for a lifetime.

Group Therapy

One of the more challenging aspects of addiction treatment is in learning how to deal with others. By being part of group therapy, clients are able to express themselves and engage with others who have been where they are and can relate to the same life struggles. Through this like-mindedness, friendships and trust grow, providing a safe space to deal with emotions. In addition, the interaction empowers participants by encouraging them to offer assistance, provide feedback, or challenge other group members in a loving yet accountable environment.

Job Seeking, Court Liaison and Community Services

Responsibility in action supports successful addiction recovery. Service work or volunteering helps build camaraderie and self-esteem while reintegrating into the community. For many clients, it is the first step into the outside after addiction treatment began and a glimpse of how good life can feel without drugs or alcohol.

For those who want to seek employment, Continuum Recovery Center offers resources for job-hunters. Although life may seem to stop while you’re in treatment, know that our experienced staff is working behind the scenes, throughout your progress, dealing with other issues that are often a repercussion of addictive behaviors.

Pending criminal charges, unresolved court issues, debt, school attendance, and other life events are handled and also serve as a reminder as to the importance of not going back to the decisions and risky lifestyle of the past.

Family Therapy

Addiction is a disease that not only affects the person afflicted with substance abuse but also those who love them the most. Our therapists emphasize the importance in working with families and have developed a program just for them.

By helping family members better understand addiction, they provide support to their loved one in healthy ways throughout their time here in treatment and as they transition back into the real world. Family therapy sessions help mend a broken family dynamic, rebuild a strong family support system, and educate family members of all ages about addiction as a disease. Although our addiction therapy and counseling is client-focused, we put a special emphasis on family healing as well.

Our Family Program

Comprehensive Addiction Treatment Is a How-to Solution

In order to facilitate whole healing, it takes a program that encompasses each aspect of addiction and how it affects everyday life. Through education about diagnosis and symptoms, social skills training, relapse prevention, medication compliance counseling, dealing with legal problems, and acquiring coping skills necessary to effectively manage mood and anxiety, a life well lived and sober can be yours.
