Do You Need
Outpatient programs are an ideal option for parents with children, teens in school or business executives with job responsibilities. These services are also an integral part of the recovery process by working to prevent relapse during aftercare.
The choice to utilize outpatient services as a main treatment plan may or not be the best solution for you and your family . Those with severe addiction or mental health conditions would find better results in an inpatient facility.
Inpatient vs. Outpatient Treatment
See a side-by-side comparison on the benefits and drawbacks of the two different treatment options.
Outpatient Drug Treatment
People with mental health issues and/or substance abuse disorders often benefit from targeted, comprehensive care. Unfortunately, according to an article in Health Affairs, about two-thirds of primary care physicians reported that they couldn't find outpatient mental health programs for their clients in 2004 to 2005.
We're hoping to change that. Our program provides comprehensive care for people with addictions, mental illnesses or both. With our help, people really can get better, and we work hard to provide accessible care for people in need.
Breaking Past Barriers
Some people don't enter treatment programs because they can't find a solution that can help, but others avoid care because they can't imagine fitting a comprehensive treatment program into their already busy lives. People like this might be:
- Raising small children
- Caring for aging parents
- Holding down demanding jobs
- Volunteering in the community
The idea of leaving all of these responsibilities behind could keep some people away from inpatient programs, but outpatient care might be a viable solution. Here, people have access to treatment that can help them to understand their mental health issues, but they can continue to deal with their day-to-day responsibilities. This could help them to enter treatment programs, where they might have avoided care in the past.
