Outpatient treatment can consist of taking part in sessions that focus on education, individual therapy, group counselling and advice around tools that can promote coping mechanisms for those dealing with addiction.
This type of treatment can be suitable for those individuals who are suffering with a mild addiction or those that may have relapsed but have a strong connection with fellowships such as Alcoholics Anonymous. It can also be a solution for those who have commitments such as work or family, have a lack of funds for residential rehabilitation/ inpatient rehabilitation or those who are seeking additional support to prevent relapse.
At Rehabs UK we provide our very own outpatient programme which can consist of alcohol home detoxing, home detoxing and titration for substance addiction, online therapy, face-to-face therapy and an educational 3 part course "Exploring Addiction" which focuses on the science of addiction.
We understand that aftercare is a vital service for those using outpatient treatment therefore anyone who uses our services are also given access to our weekly online recovery support group and WhatsApp group for additional guidance free of charge. We also provide additional free family support with our weekly online family talk group.
Outpatient rehabilitation is less intense than residential or inpatient rehab. Although it does offer a variety of treatments and therapies for the individual to follow to help to combat the addiction.
This type of rehab offers appropriate treatment, professional help and support throughout the process as well as setting goals and treatment objectives. However it is important to understand that this type of treatment may not be suitable for everyone as it relies on the individuals engagement and attendance, which can be challenging when it is not a residential controlled environment.
Some outpatient programmes offer day (ofter referred to as Dayhab), evening and/or weekend sessions which may be an option for someone who is still managing their addiction with their daily lives. For example, work, family and personal responsibilities.
There are different levels of outpatient rehab and our Treatment Advisors are able to tailor a treatment plan that is bespoke to the individuals circumstance and requirements. They can also go through what to expect from outpatient treatment vs inpatient rehab.
