Drug Rehab That Allows You To Still Go To Work & School
When you are looking at your options for drug and alcohol rehab, you will need to think about the practical implications of your choice. While inpatient rehab may be the best choice for many people, as it removes you from your usual hangouts, people who may enable drug use and drinking, stress, and substances, it also takes you out of your everyday routine, including work and school. For some people, this can become a barrier for seeking treatment, as they will be unable to keep their jobs, or they may be relying on student financing or bursaries that can be taken away if they miss class. Others may be unable to be away from family or other important obligations for a full 30 or more days of inpatient rehab after detoxing. This is where an outpatient program comes in.
Outpatient rehab is often used to transition from inpatient care into living back at home and returning to your normal life, but if you cannot leave your career or your college/university program you may wish to look into outpatient treatment plans like a partial hospitalization program, an intensive outpatient program, or another customized outpatient addiction treatment plan that will allow you to continue living your life as normally as possible as you get the help you need.
Benefits of Outpatient Drug Rehab
Benefits of Outpatient Drug Rehab
Some of the benefits of choosing an outpatient drug rehab over inpatient treatment include:
- A lower cost, as if you are living at home, you will not need to pay for lodging or food
- A more flexible schedule, allowing you to continue working, going to school, and attending to your day-to-day responsibilities like caring for children or other family members, etc.
- The freedom to see your friends and loved ones whenever you wish, which, for those with a safe and sober, supportive place to live, may make a difference in their recovery
- More privacy, with fewer people needing to know that you are seeking addiction treatment
- Meeting sober peers in your area, and building a sober community
- The ability to try out your newly learned skills immediately in real-world situations
- If you do not live near an inpatient rehab center, a flexible outpatient program or an online intensive outpatient plan can allow you to get the help you need without needing to move away from home for 30 to 90 days.
What To Expect During Outpatient Rehab
When you are in outpatient rehab, you will live at home or in a sober living home, and come in for pre-arranged appointments, therapy sessions, meetings, and other treatments on a set schedule that you and your treatment team will create together. Most people will begin in a short-term partial hospitalization program that is usually full days, 5 to 7 days a week, and then transition into an intensive outpatient or other outpatient treatment plan so they can schedule treatments around daily life activities. You will need to be responsible for yourself and your own actions, getting yourself to all your meetings and appointments regularly and on-time, and staying away from drugs and alcohol on your own. It is best to live in a sober-friendly environment surrounded by supportive people if you are in outpatient rehab so as to minimize the triggers and temptations you encounter on a daily basis that may cause you to relapse.
How Long Does Outpatient Rehab Last With The Detox Center of LA?
Everybody has unique needs when it comes to their recovery, and outpatient rehab does not have an end date for this reason. It can last as long as you want it to. Some of the factors that influence the length of outpatient rehab are:
- The substance(s) you were using and your level of addiction to these substances
- Whether you need dual diagnosis treatments for mental health issues
- Whether you need medical care along with your rehabilitation program
- Whether you are in a medication-assisted treatment plan for long-term detox
- Whether you have already completed an inpatient rehab program
- If you have a safe and sober place to live or need to move into a sober residence for a while
- Practical issues when it comes to obtaining treatment and working/going to school
- Your overall comfort level when you think about moving on from treatment
Outpatient rehab can take anywhere from a few weeks to years, and for most people it begins as an intensive program, gradually tapering down into a casual outpatient plan that conforms to your needs as you become more comfortable in your sober life.
IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program)
Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are the most popular type of outpatient treatment plan for people who have completed a Torrance benzo detox and/or an inpatient rehab program and want to get back to living their life, but still want strong support and structured treatments. In most IOPs you will live at home (or in a sober residence) and come in 2 or 3 times a week for a few hours at a time, in the mornings, evenings, and weekends, on a schedule that can conform to a work schedule or to your other needs. Most IOPs last for around 90 days, and are designed to allow you to live a normal life as you get:
- Life skills training
- Behavioral therapy
- Relapse prevention training
- Individual, group, and family therapy
- Employment assistance
- Mental health treatment
- Medical care and medication management
- Connections to your local sober community including 12-step and peer support groups
PHP (Partial Hospitalization Program)
A partial hospitalization program is usually a short-term transitional program, lasting for 30 days or fewer. It is designed to help people who are leaving inpatient detox and rehab get used to living at home, seeing old friends and spending time with family in familiar places with a strong daily structured program that runs 5 to 7 days a week, all day, like a full-time job. If you go to a PHP, you will spend all day in treatment, getting therapy, mental health care, learning recovery skills and relapse prevention strategies that will be useful the rest of your life. You can continue a medication-assisted treatment plan for tapering off substance use, and you will have strong medical care and support. Many PHPs have physical health and nutrition programs as well, helping you build positive habits and regain your bodily strength along with your mental and spiritual wellness. After a PHP, most patients will move into an IOP.
Which Outpatient Treatment, IOP or PHP Is Right For Me?
An IOP may be right for you if you:
- Are not experiencing withdrawal symptoms or cravings
- Are motivated in your own recovery, and are willing and able to come to every appointment
- Have a solid base of support at home, and a sober-friendly place to live
- Do not need 24-hour medical or psychological care or monitoring
- Want to get back to work, school, and your family as quickly as possible
You may want to consider a PHP if you:
- Are still working through mental health issues or trauma
- Are still experiencing withdrawal symptoms or drug/alcohol cravings
- Do not have a safe, sober place to live during treatment
- Need strong medical care and medication management services
- Feel more comfortable with daily structure and accountability
