Outpatient Addiction Treatment in Phoenix
At Continuum Recovery Center, our holistic outpatient addiction treatment program offers you support, education, and therapy with minimal disruption to your daily life.
What is Outpatient Treatment?
Outpatient addiction treatment consists of different programs where you visit a treatment center on certain days of the week. The major difference between outpatient and inpatient treatment is that inpatient centers provide 24-hour supervision, housing and access to medical care.
Outpatient programs differ in intensity, ranging from one session a week to several a day. Most clients start with more intensive therapy and then decrease sessions as they progress in recovery. Most of your time in outpatient care is spent in individual and group counseling.
Continuum Recovery Center also offers other programs and amenities that our clients can participate in such as:
- Music and art therapy
- Naturopathic remedies
- Nutrition and fitness coaching
- Medication assisted treatment
- Family Education Program
- EMDR therapy
Who Can Benefit from Outpatient Treatment?
An outpatient program is a good choice for someone who needs help for a substance abuse problem but doesn’t require around-the-clock supervision. We can assess your needs during your admissions call, but in general, those most likely to benefit from outpatient addiction treatment have a:
- Mild to moderate addiction
- Low risk of serious withdrawal symptoms
- Strong support system
- Motivation to attend regular counseling sessions
- Transportation to get to and from treatment
We generally do not recommend outpatient treatment for those with severe or multiple addictions or untreated mental health problems.
Is an Outpatient Treatment Program Effective?
Various studies have compared relapse rates between addiction inpatient and outpatient treatment programs. Based on this research, outpatient programs appear to be just as effective as inpatient programs in helping people achieve and maintain sobriety.
What makes outpatient rehab most effective is knowing when it’s the right fit. For many people in recovery, addiction treatment is not a one-and-done event. It’s a process that involves an inpatient or intensive outpatient program, a step down to standard outpatient care and then a step down to aftercare.
The benefit in choosing Continuum Recovery Center is that we have a full continuum of care. Clients can get all of their treatment services under one roof. Some clients participate in our outpatient programs for a few months, while others participate for much longer. We do recommend at least one year of aftercare after completing outpatient treatment.
What Will The Outpatient Treatment Program Experience Be?
During the week, you’ll attend groups and classes but return to your own home at the end of each day. Our programs are designed to work best for someone with less-advanced addiction issues or who has already completed an inpatient program and can 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.
