What Does Outpatient Alcohol Treatment Look Like?

what does outpatient alcohol treatment look like

Outpatient rehab programs for alcohol allow you to confront your alcohol addiction without leaving your entire life behind. While many people dealing with addiction require round-the-clock inpatient care to jump-start their recovery, sometimes this option isn't feasible or even necessary. If you:

  • Need extra support for addiction while maintaining your life
  • Have a minor addiction you can somewhat manage yourself
  • Have a strong support system to help you fight your addiction
  • Have a co-occurring disorder like depression or anxiety

You may be the perfect candidate for outpatient alcohol treatment.

Our Outpatient Alcohol Rehabilitation Options

Diamond House Detox's outpatient treatment options all cater to your needs. When you come to us for treatment, we'll complete an evaluation to determine your needs, then assign you to one of our programs to start:

  • Outpatient detox: This program allows you to go through medically assisted detox with skilled professionals during the day. In the evenings, we'll send you home to rest in the comfort of your bed.
  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): This outpatient alcohol rehab option strives to keep your life moving with minimal disruption. It involves three or four sessions weekly during the day or in the evening.
  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): PHP is a step above IOP. You'll be on campus every day, Monday through Friday, participating in several group and individual therapies, support groups and lifestyle coaching sessions.
  • We also offer a virtual option if you are unable to attend in person. 

The Benefits of Outpatient Alcohol Rehab

The difference between inpatient and outpatient alcohol rehab is that outpatient lets you leave our Northern California facility. It also gives you:

  • Flexibility: The main draw for most outpatient clients is the ability to receive treatment without abandoning their daily life. People with jobs and families cannot always get away from them for an extended time to start their recovery, and outpatient programs mean they don't have to.
  • Better costs: Outpatient treatment is a more cost-effective solution to rehab than inpatient. However, if your addiction is serious enough, money should not be a factor in getting the full range of services you need.
  • Extra support: An outpatient program allows you to get to know the medical staff and possibly even other clients and still return home to your family and friends. You'll have double the people supporting you. From the very start of your treatment, you can learn how to navigate social settings so commonly rife with alcohol with all supportive methods at your side.
