Drug rehab becomes necessary when an addiction becomes out of a person’s control, but it is often expensive and cannot be managed along with an addict’s other responsibilities in life. Patients can receive treatment without having to pack up and leave home or dedicate too many hours to the process. With outpatient rehab, there is more potential for productivity outside ones own treatment.
What is Outpatient Rehab?
Compared to inpatient programs, outpatient rehab require more cooperation from the patient and their family/friends. Programs typically last 6-20 hours per week and employ three primarily elements: individual therapy, group therapy, and support groups. Above all, patients must be self-motivated, and they must also have a support group of some kind. Much of what is learned in therapy and group exercises relates to peer and family relations.
Outpatient programs can serve as an effective alternate, as well as a successor to help us learn to walk properly again once inpatient rehab is over and we are back on our feet. The approach is someone different, but it is highly effective.
Enrolling in Outpatient Rehab
To apply for outpatient rehab, patients must meet the diagnostic criteria for drug addiction, abuse, or dependency issues. Signs that rehab may be a good option are physical dependency to, and withdrawal symptoms without, drugs or alcohol; an inability to withdraw from drug use despite being conscious of self-destructive effects; mood swings and violent behavior; issues with relationships and finances due to drug use; and failure to stop using.
These issues can affect anyone. Seeing a friend or loved one suffer from addiction can be terrifying and painful, and addicts are often ashamed to seek help. But for communities who stand by their ill, however, and seek to help addicts take steps to get better—substance abuse specialists are happy to guide the process.
