As part of an outpatient treatment center, you can receive medication-assisted treatment while living at home. At ChoicePoint, our outpatient program provides counseling and support for our clients. So, if you want to continue your life without missing a beat and still maintain your recovery, you should consider how our program could improve your chances of living a fulfilling life.

What Is an Outpatient Program?

therapy at an outpatient treatment centerAn outpatient program helps clients who struggle with drug or alcohol addiction maintain their sobriety. An outpatient program works for people who do not require around-the-clock supervision and care. Therefore, you can continue to work or go to school, fulfill family obligations, and lead a life outside of an addiction treatment center.

In contrast, a residential treatment program requires that clients stay overnight to receive structured, supervised support day and night.

Benefits of an Outpatient Treatment Center

There are many benefits to an IOP outpatient program, including maintaining contact and support with your family, getting help from friends, maintaining your privacy, reducing the cost of recovery, and keeping up with school or work.

Maintain the Support of Your Family

An outpatient treatment center allows you to fulfill family obligations such as the following:

  • Caring for younger children
  • Caring for aging parents
  • Spending time with your spouse or significant other
  • Taking part in family events

We understand that clients with very young children can’t just take off 30 days or more to attend a residential treatment program. At ChoicePoint, you don’t have to make that hard decision. You simply come in for medication and individual and group therapy sessions, then return to your life and responsibilities. Our outpatient program gives you the freedom and flexibility to live your life more freely than other treatment options.

Get Help from Your Family

During recovery, you should avoid friends or family members who still drink or do drugs. However, surrounding yourself with supportive family members and friends can benefit your recovery greatly. In an inpatient program, you can meet people with the same struggles.

Isolation can be a threat to overcoming an addiction. During group therapy sessions, you can meet others who are going through the same struggle. Additionally, individual therapy sessions are available in person or through telehealth services.

Maintain Your Privacy

Many people put off addiction recovery due to fears of a negative stigma around treatment. At ChoicePoint, you can attend an outpatient treatment center that allows you to maintain your privacy. Only trained staff members know about the work you do at our center. However, we encourage you to share your hopes and fears with those you love so that they can help you stay on the right path to recovery.

Reduce Costs

Our outpatient program costs less than residential programs. You can save money, especially if you are paying for the services out of pocket.

Build a Community

Many people maintain their sobriety by forming connections with others recovering from substance use disorders. If you lack support at home, this community can become a vital part of your recovery. With an outpatient treatment program, you are free to find meetings such as AA or NA and join groups that help you develop new interests as soon as you begin the program. Ultimately, the more you become engaged in the rest of life, the less important drugs and alcohol become.
