What is Outpatient Addiction Rehab?

The vast majority of people who seek help for a substance use problem or an addiction do not want or feel they need a residential treatment program or rehab. Many are seeking help that they can fit into their current schedule and will not require them to take a leave from their job and families. Outpatient treatment can be the right option for these people. Some outpatient treatment is considered intensive outpatient treatment. These programs usually require the individual to be in a treatment for several hours each day, at least 5 days per week. The treatment usually entails group therapy sessions, support group meetings and counseling. In some cases medication may also be provided and drug testing is usually done as well. Less intensive outpatient treatment is also available where people meet with a counselor or therapist once or twice per week and also attend group therapy and/or support group meetings. As technology has advanced there are now outpatient treatment options that can be done online and through video conferencing. This allows even more flexibility of scheduling for those seeking this kind of help.
