What is Outpatient Treatment?
Individuals receiving outpatient treatment are able to work, attend school,
and live at home while getting the help they need. This flexibility can
be both empowering and challenging, as living in the "real world"
means people in treatment will still be exposed to the temptations, triggers,
and stressors that may have previously caused them to use drugs or alcohol
or struggle with their mental health.
However, outpatient treatment also provides the tools, skills, and knowledge that empowers people to manage and overcome their struggles. It can also be helpful for patients who have a support system a home that will help them maintain their sobriety and recovery outside of therapy.
