The first few months after completing a residential addiction treatment program can be difficult. Many individuals find the early stages of recovery challenging as they attempt to apply the skills and techniques they’ve learned towards creating a sober lifestyle. One of the ways to stabilize this transition is by participating in an outpatient treatment program.
In outpatient treatment at the District Recovery Centers, individuals who have a history of substance use disorder can find ongoing counseling, whether one-on-one, in group therapy or family therapy, to keep themselves on the road to recovery. Sobriety is a state individuals recovering from addiction have to keep working to maintain. We understand this at District Recovery Centers. Thus, we offer a comprehensive spectrum of care, providing individuals the resources they need to live the life they desire.
What Is Outpatient Treatment?
In outpatient treatment, the counselors and therapists at the District Recovery Centers begin by getting to know the client looking to understand their substance use disorder and history of addiction. We then pick up where the last recovery effort left off focusing on the issues individuals are still dealing with and revisiting the coping mechanisms, life skills, and techniques to deal with triggers and cravings an individual knows. Then we develop a fresh treatment plan. It may include therapies the client is already familiar with or new approaches. At the District Recovery Centers, we continue to educate individuals about addiction and recovery, assess their development and progress while monitoring and supporting their growth in recovery.
Benefits of an Outpatient Treatment Program
Some people find it hard to resume their life in the community after discharge from a rehabilitation center. A gradual integration through an outpatient treatment program or sober living program can be extremely helpful.
An outpatient treatment program may be one of the best methods of addressing substance use disorder for individuals who struggle with a chronic relapse condition. It is a program allowing individuals to get the therapy they need when they most need it. Also, individuals can incorporate treatment into their routine, giving them a better foundation to maintain their sobriety. Most of all, an outpatient treatment program allows individuals to address any triggers, issues, or cravings that arise as quickly as possible. Doing so mitigates the risk of relapse and allows clients to stay on the path of recovery.
