What Does Outpatient Drug Treatment Look Like?

what does outpatient drug treatment look like

When most people think of rehab, they consider inpatient treatment, where people with addictions stay full time for a certain period and live amongst others going through the same thing. They eat, sleep and receive treatment on-premises and are only permitted to leave after weeks or even months of being there.

While many people with a serious addiction to a substance need round-the-clock assistance in getting sober, this is not the case for everyone. If you:

  • Can manage your sobriety for short periods
  • Require the flexibility to leave campus and tend to other responsibilities
  • Have an at-home support system

An intensive outpatient program may be the right choice for you.

Our Outpatient Drug Rehab Programs

Diamond House Detox's outpatient rehab programs offer our clients affordable and flexible accommodations for their lives when inpatient treatment simply isn't an option. When you come to us for treatment, we'll start with an evaluation that allows us to understand your current treatment needs and the level of support you have outside of rehab. If you're deemed a good candidate, we'll enroll you in one of our three outpatient programs:

  • Outpatient detox: In the easiest stages of recovery, detoxing from drugs is often the top barrier to getting sober. However, if you can handle some of it on your own, our on-campus medical professionals will see you through the days so that you have the tools you need to go through detox at home at night. 
  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): The Intensive Outpatient Program allows you to live a relatively normal life while you visit Diamond House Detox for three or four times a week during the day or in the evening. During this time, you'll participate in group and 1:1 therapy sessions to manage your addiction and possibly co-occurring disorders.
  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): If you require more intensive treatment than is available through IOP, our Partial Hospitalization Program is the next step. While you'll still return home every night, you'll spend every day Monday through Friday, at our Northern California center, going through addiction support therapy and learning other methods of living healthy.

All these options offer you differing levels of flexibility to leave our premises and return home for work, school and familial obligations.
