outpatient rehab

By offering this lower level of care, patients who have completed inpatient treatment but are still in need of extra care, are able access the services they need in order to maintain sobriety, while they slowly transition into life outside of rehab. This process is still a very delicate one and we aim to provide as much support as possible throughout all levels of care to patients in all stages of their recovery. Outpatient drug rehab provides access to the necessary treatment and services for the convenience of our patients. 

What is Outpatient Rehab?

Outpatient drug treatment is an ideal option for those seeking flexible treatment programs who want to maintain their current responsibilities while still receiving extra care for their drug or alcohol addiction. Outpatient programs are recommended to those who have stepped down in level of care from inpatient residential or patients with less severe addictions that do not require MAT and 24/7 support. We believe that in order to maintain sobriety, those in recovery should utilize long-term treatment services such as effective substance addiction therapies offered at outpatient drug treatment facilities.

At our rehab facility, we provide the perfect transitional treatment programs that are less intensive than inpatient treatment, while still offering immense support and structure. Outpatient programming consists of a partial hospitalization program (PHP) and intensive outpatient program (IOP). In PHP, patients spend about six hours per day in treatment programming and for IOP, patients spend about three hours per day participating in various treatment therapies and services. 

Our outpatient location in the Cincinnati and Blue Ash area of Ohio also offers various aftercare services such as family support services, educational and career planning assistance and assistance in locating a sober transitional home. These unique services are greatly beneficial to patients who are slowly integrating back into society and learning to live without the dependence of drugs and alcohol.

What is the difference between Inpatient and Outpatient Rehab?

Inpatient and outpatient rehab programs are both effective substance use disorder treatments. However, each program offers different focuses and methods of treatment. For inpatient rehab programs, patients will focus on medical detox that may include MAT or various forms of withdrawal management techniques. Inpatient residential programs also begin to introduce patients to individual, group and family therapies to begin addressing the psychological aspect of their addiction. 

In comparison to outpatient drug rehab, patients are committed into a lower level of care where they can continue focusing on their counseling and therapy treatments while slowly integrating back into daily life responsibilities. Outpatient care allows patients to work around a flexible treatment schedule while still being able to receive high standards of care. Patients enrolled in outpatient programs do not reside within the facility and have opportunities to engage in day-to-day activities outside of the rehab environment and are able to practice and utilize their learned coping skills when faced with real world situations. 


Specialized services offered in Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab

At our drug and alcohol rehab, we offer a few unique services in our outpatient program to best help our clients recover from their drug and alcohol addiction. Each one of our patients receive regular medical and psychiatric evaluations where treatment progress is assessed and adjustments are made as needed. We specialize in treating co-occurring mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, trauma and more. In an effort to fully prepare our patients for self-sufficiency at the end of their rehab treatment, we offer educational and professional services for those who are transitioning back into daily life activities and responsibilities. 

Psychiatric Assessments From A Medical Physician

Despite completion of detox and residential treatment care, some patients are still very vulnerable to urges of substance cravings and relapse. Therefore, regular psychiatric evaluations from certified medical physicians are given to our patients within outpatient programing. These assessments help determine the necessary continuing treatments for each patient such as MAT or different types of substance abuse therapies such as EMDR or CBT. By making regular assessments and adjustments to treatments, patients are sure to remain on the continued path to addiction recovery. 

Dual Diagnosis Treatment Therapies

At Hotel California by the Sea, we specialize in treating co-occurring mental health conditions. Those who suffer from SUD and AUD often have concurrent issues with mental health, making it even more difficult to cope. Despite these two conditions occurring at the same time within the patient, that does not mean these issues are a catalyst for each other. Even still treatment for both the substance addiction and the mental health condition should be treated simultaneously in order for the patient to achieve a successful recovery. 

Some common mental health conditions experienced by drug and alcohol addicts include: ADHD, bipolar disorders, OCD, depression, eating disorders, anxiety, PTSD and personality disorder. By also addressing these psychological conditions within patients who suffer from substance addiction, there is a greater chance of maintaining long term sobriety. 

Counseling And Educational Planning Services

Drug and alcohol addiction rehab means putting recovery at the forefront of your life. Because of this, other aspects of life such as education and career may be put on hold. In our outpatient alcohol and drug rehab, we offer a specialized program focusing on services to help patients achieve their educational and professional goals. With the guidance of certified counselors, case managers and mentors, patients will work to identify these goals and take the necessary steps to achieve them. 

Our career resource program assists in the following areas:

  • Personal and professional accountability
  • Career specific feedback
  • Resume assistance
  • Stress management strategies
  • Goal setting techniques
  • Vocational and professional skill development

For our patients who need extra assistance in transitioning back into an outside social setting, patients enrolled in our outpatient programming can also receive assistance in life skill development.

  • Financial literacy
  • Time management and work/life balance
  • Coping skills
  • Medication management
  • Nutritional wellness

Effective therapies and treatment methods used in Outpatient Rehab

Outpatient rehab therapies are specialized programs aimed at helping patients practice various learned coping strategies as they move back into daily life routines. Patients begin these therapies during inpatient residential treatment and as they transition to lower levels of care in PHP and IOP, they are encouraged to continue therapeutic methods as per the recommendation of their treatment plan. These specialized therapies include, CBT, DBT, EMDR, Health and Fitness therapy, and marriage and family therapy.  

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

With dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), the main principle revolves around acceptance and change. These may seem like contradictory concepts, but they can help patients become more aware of their thoughts, feelings and behaviors in the present moment. In DBT Patients learn to accept their negative thought patterns associated with their addiction and learn new tools and techniques to manage and eventually change future distressing events. 

EMDR (Eye movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy)

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR) was originally created to help patients with severe trauma conditions. Today EMDR can be highly effective when implemented into substance abuse therapy to help patients who are also suffering from mental health conditions. This therapy helps alleviate the distressing symptoms of trauma and recover from traumatic memories or past experiences. This specialized unique therapy offered at our drug and alcohol rehab is highly effective in treating patients with PTSD, panic disorder and other co-occurring mental health conditions. 

Health & Fitness Therapy

Maintaining good health, wellness and fitness are just as important to a successful recovery as any type of cognitive therapy. Patients who have a severe addiction in which brain and bodily functions were compromised, nourishing the body back to physical health can help patients maintain long-term sobriety. In our outpatient programming, patients are often encouraged to participate in fitness and physical wellness activities as a supplemental therapy to encourage a healthier and happier lifestyle free from drugs and alcohol. 

Marriage and Family Therapy

Those who recover alone without the additional support system of friends and family have a difficult time maintaining sobriety in the long run. At our outpatient program, we offer a unique marriage and family counseling and support service. Addiction not only affects the person suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction, but it significantly affects their friends and family as well. In these group counseling sessions, patients and their families will sit with certified therapists or psychologists to openly communicate, set healthy personal boundaries, and learn how to better support each other during the addict’s recovery. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) teaches patients to redirect and reconstruct negative thought patterns and behaviors surrounding their addiction. CBT revolves around four main aspects: thoughts, emotions, behaviors and physical sensation. Patients will learn and practice effective coping techniques and how to re-evaluate their current thought process, which can otherwise negatively impact their recovery.

Benefits of Outpatient Treatment

Although outpatient treatment is a less intensive level of care, it offers many benefits and opportunities to patients as they begin to transition back into society. Outpatient programming allows for more freedom to participate in outside activities and responsibilities as well as an overall integration of therapeutic methods into daily life. 

For individuals with less severe addictions and are unable to attend a residential treatment facility due to external circumstances and responsibilities, outpatient programs may be a compromising fit. Outpatient rehab offers a flexible approach to treatment allowing patients to continue with their personal and professional commitments while receiving high quality substance abuse treatment care. By giving patients the opportunity to exercise and practice the skills they have learned throughout their treatment, patients become more empowered to continue to maintain a sober lifestyle. This also allows the patients to attract a healthy environment, influence and social support system to keep them accountable in their recovery. 

Outpatient treatment can range anywhere from two months to a year depending on each patient and their own progress in rehab treatment. Outpatient programming offers a full continuation of care while helping patients slowly adjust back into their new lives free of drugs and alcohol.
