Outpatient Rehab Program

What is Outpatient Rehab?

Outpatient rehab can be very beneficial for patients with substance use disorders or those who may or may not have become physically dependent on their substance of choice but are still serious about getting sober. Outpatient rehab programs come in a variety of formats and vary in terms of intensity but all generally focus on counseling, education and building a safe, supportive network of others in recovery.

Outpatient programs offer drug and alcohol treatment as well as mental health treatment which can be scheduled with a greater degree of flexibility when compared to inpatient treatment. This schedule allows patients to continue with their day-to-day responsibilities and continue living at home while being required to check into their outpatient care provider at scheduled times throughout the week for medication (where applicable), counseling and therapy sessions.

Overcoming Barriers to Treatment With Telehealth

Addiction doesn’t stop for anything – and neither does Recovery Centers of America. In an effort to further protect patients and staff members from COVID-19 exposure, all Outpatient services at RCA are now offered via telehealth, meaning you can still get the same, evidence-based treatment from the comfort and safety of your home. All you need is a smartphone, tablet, computer, or laptop. Learn more about how our telehealth services works here.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Rehab: What is the Difference?

Drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs typically fall into two categories: inpatient or outpatient treatment. What is the difference in inpatient vs. outpatient treatment? While each type of program has its benefits – the specific type of treatment needed (in many cases, both) need to be considered based on a patient’s individual needs at that time.

Inpatient Treatment Outpatient Treatment
Appropriate for patients requiring an acute level of care or with a moderate to severe addiction Appropriate for patients seeking a less intensive level of care
Provides patients with an immersive, comprehensive treatment experience as patient stays in the facility (typically for 30 days) Outpatient treatment is effective at providing long-term, structured support and flexible scheduling as patient continues to live at home and goes to treatment for a varied period of time and varied frequency throughout the week
More frequent, longer individual therapy sessions Less frequent individual therapy sessions
More frequent, longer group therapy sessions Less frequent group therapy sessions
Typically more expensive than outpatient treatment* Typically more affordable than inpatient treatment*
Patient remains in treatment for an extended period (typically 30 days) and accordingly, is separated from regular day-to-day life activities Patient maintains a more ‘regular’ schedule
24 hour medical supervision and community support Accessible to a recovery support network
Typically a 30 day program Typically lasts a longer period of time than inpatient, can be up to 1 year or as needed
24 hours a day, 7 days a week Typically ranges from 3 – 30 hours a week
*Recovery Centers of America is in-network with many major insurance companies. Accordingly, inpatient treatment services may be more affordable than outpatient treatment services over time, based on your individual insurance plan coverage.

Note: In many cases, a combination or ‘step-down’ from inpatient treatment through a series of progressively less intense outpatient treatment services ensure patients have the highest chance for success in achieving and maintaining long-term sobriety.
