Outpatient Drug Treatment Can Save Your Life

Table Of Contents

The disease of addiction is a chronic and frequently progressive condition. It will not spontaneously go away, and it is likely this disease will continually worsen until you enter outpatient treatment.

If you are ready for a new way of life, there are substance addiction treatments available to help. Outpatient treatment can improve the quality of life and health. With treatment, you can successfully manage this disease and experience the positive change that sobriety can have on your life.

“Discovery Transitions has a program for you right in the heart of Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley,” says David Dequa, Program Director of the Discovery Transitions Intensive Outpatient program. “Whether you are stepping down from a residential treatment facility or just starting your journey to sobriety, Discovery Transitions can help you build a foundation for long-term recovery.”

Is Outpatient Addiction Therapy Right for Me?

Some addiction sufferers are not able to seek inpatient treatment for their condition. They may be struggling to remain at work, have family obligations or have already paid for tuition and want to keep up their education. Some recovering addicts have previously completed an inpatient program but require the ongoing support that outpatient therapy can give them.

Most addiction centers today offer outpatient addiction treatment for precisely these reasons. In some cases, inpatient therapy is truly the best option. Individuals who require medical detox, for example, should opt for inpatient programs. However, if you believe that you would benefit from outpatient treatment, you’ll find there are many options available.

Adds Dequa, “What you can expect in Discovery Transitions’ outpatient drug rehab program is a gradual awakening and new freedom, not only from addiction itself but from everything that goes with it: isolation, fear, anxiety—the list goes on and on. Recovery offers a healthy and fulfilling alternative to the substance-dependent life.”

What Should I Look for in an Outpatient Program?

There are many approaches to addiction treatment, so you’ll want to search for a rehab program that is ideal for you. However, you’ll want to seek an outpatient drug treatment center that is patient, focused and adaptable to your needs. If you have scheduling concerns, it’s best to meet with an addiction specialist before beginning treatment. So you can develop a plan that allows you to maintain your other commitments, such as caring for children or working. Naturally, you should choose a certified addiction treatment center that has the experience and expertise you can rely on as you embark on your road to lifelong recovery.

Types of Outpatient Therapy

Various drug and alcohol addiction centers provide multiple options when it comes to outpatient therapy. In many cases, sufferers can expect to find programs for ongoing support, family therapy, individual and group therapy and even educational programs. Some centers, like Discovery Transitions, may offer alternative addiction treatments, such as Neurofeedback, which has been shown to nearly double recovery rates. Many outpatient programs, like Discovery Transitions, are very intensive. As a result, addiction sufferers can still obtain the level of treatment they need to meet their recovery goals. Many individuals also combine their participation in 12-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous with their outpatient therapy.

How Can Outpatient Addiction Treatment Save My Life?

Outpatient alcohol and/or drug treatment can be highly successful for many addiction sufferers. For individuals who are able to self-regulate, you may find this to be an ideal way to overcome your addiction. Outpatient therapy can help sufferers sever their psychological and behavioral dependencies on drugs or alcohol. By learning healthy coping strategies, these individuals are able to prevent relapse and achieve long-term sobriety. By refraining from abusing drugs or alcohol, addiction sufferers will improve mental and physical health.

The fact is, both inpatient and outpatient treatment programs can save lives. Each time an addict abuses drugs or alcohol, they risk overdose and they compromise their health and their future. Treatment can save your life if you suffer from the disease of addiction. The sooner you enter treatment, the sooner you can change your life for the better.

  • Going to treatment at Discovery Transitions was one of the best programs I've participated in, they helped me get my life back. They have amazing staff and overall good-natured people. They focus on all aspects of counseling, case management, meetings, different types of therapy, including trauma, one on one counseling. This is coming from someone who has been traumatized and neglected. They helped me get to the root of the problem. Which most times can feel very uncomfortable but they provide groups that you participate in and communicate with other addicts and hear their life stories. They really are an organization of team working to help heal the conflicted minds of us addicts that we faced every day. I would highly recommend this treatment program to anyone suffering from substance abuse or mental health.
