Outpatient Drug Rehab is a supreme option available for those drug abusers who are exposed to mild addiction and, they cannot disrupt their regular work/family life routine to get their treatment done. It is generally opted by those who wish to get their treatment done from a clinic or hospital during specified chosen hours of their routine which may range from 12-16 hours per week, without having to stay at the rehab center. The drug abusers with hectic life and busy professional routine are out most common patients. Outpatient rehab allows complete flexibility in the treatment programme in the terms of hours and days per week selected.
Just like inpatient rehab, the outpatient rehab also fulfills the criteria of making the patient free from substance use but, with a difference that he doesn’t have to stay in the rehab center as in the case of in patient detox where he is admitted to the rehab center for his de addiction. Outpatient program may include psychosocial interventions, medications, education/counsellings, art or music therapy, and the support services, depending upon the client’s need. Support services may be in the form of helping the person undergoing the rehab program finding a job or a house to live. Besides, the patient may also profited in the form of newly developed social connections, personal encouragement, and motivation to achieve his ultimate goal of undergoing outpatient rehab.
Apart from imparting the education, individual or group counselings our outpatient program allows the complete monitoring and treatment of the drug withdrawal symptoms which can be in the form of anxiety, depression, and anger issues.
There is a myth that impatient rehab has more success rate as compared to the outpatient detox which, is not true because the goal of both the plans are the same however, the success completely depends upon the will power and the self-discipline of the patient under going the treatment.
