Time for recovery is something some individuals lack to dedicate to recovery. However, a lack of time should never be a reason for not seeking treatment for addiction. While an inpatient program is helpful for some, others will find an outpatient treatment program more suitable. No matter which step you choose to take, it’s vital to remember that recovery is possible.
The Next Step in Treatment
An outpatient treatment program at Morningside Recovery can be the next step for those ending an inpatient rehab. Clients who have successfully transitioned through the initial phases of inpatient or intensive outpatient treatment will benefit. Those who have finished an inpatient or intensive outpatient program require more support as they enter back into their life. An outpatient treatment program provides both support through counselors and a routine to schedule their day around. This routine and schedule can help with entering back into life after an inpatient stay.
In Need of Flexibility
An outpatient treatment program is also best for those who lack the time it takes to stay at an inpatient facility. Those who wish to remain in school while they work towards recovery will find outpatient treatment more suitable. Others who find this program helpful are those who don’t have severe addictions or those who wish to remain at home. While some individuals don’t mind the change of scenery, others find that leaving their homes causes more stress during the process. An outpatient treatment program can allow clients to stay in a familiar setting while still attending meetings and sessions.
Individuals will have more freedom than people in the initial first month of treatment, allowing them more time to participate in outside obligations like school or work. Outpatient treatment is usually scheduled for three months and consists of classes scheduled during the day, evening or both.
