Outpatient Rehab

Hawaii Island Recovery provides the best outpatient rehab in Hawaii for those trying to quit using substances and learn to live alcohol- and drug-free.

For many people, outpatient rehab is an excellent option. However, your preparedness for this program largely depends on what stage of recovery you’re going through. Some people go to an outpatient program too soon, which can have poor consequences. Often, you’ll start in a residential program, and then step down to an outpatient program. Overall, for many, outpatient may be the best addiction recovery option.

What is Outpatient Rehab

Outpatient programs vary in the type and intensity of services offered depending on the facility. Some programs are low-intensity that offer drug education services. Others are intensive outpatient programs that are comparable to residential treatment or partial hospitalization programs.  

Outpatient treatment is the most adaptable option for addiction treatment services. These services take place on an outpatient basis and allow clients to return home after treatment hours. This makes it possible for people with existing commitments and responsibilities to still receive the help and support they need while getting sober.

Some people choose to attend outpatient treatment without first going through higher levels of care. They need the flexibility of an outpatient program so they can continue meeting their daily responsibilities. Not everyone can stay alcohol- and drug-free by attending an outpatient treatment program alone, though; they need the entirety of a comprehensive treatment program.

The Danger of Going to Outpatient Rehab Too Soon

Addiction is an extremely powerful mental illness involving an intense obsession with drugs or alcohol. Thus, many people try withdrawing from outpatient too soon. Often, a person needs residential treatment because they can’t trust themselves to stay clean in any other program. Fortunately, residential treatment provides additional recovery strength before you transition to an outpatient program.

Others believe that after going through residential rehab, they no longer need treatment. Returning to old habits after residential treatment is overwhelming and often leads to relapse. However, studies show that those beginning in a residential program and transitioning to outpatient have a much higher success rate. Typically, the levels of care progress in the following way:

Stepping Down to an Outpatient Rehab Program

After residential treatment is complete, it’s important to go through an outpatient program. This helps ease you back into everyday life. By continuing your recovery, you can ensure you still have the necessary support. As you return to work or school, you’ll begin to experience life on your terms. Above all, outpatient gives you the chance to continue your treatment with additional tools for staying clean and sober.

Additionally, while you’re in the outpatient program, you’ll continue to do group and individual therapy. The group setting is extremely beneficial because you’ll have the opportunity for peer interactions. Eventually, they could blossom into continual support. This strengthens your recovery and allows you to effectively avoid future relapse.

Going Straight to Outpatient Rehab

For some people, outpatient substance abuse treatment may be the right option. Typically, this is for those with less severe addictions. If you’re someone with an extremely supportive family, it may be best for you to continue living at home while going to treatment. You may also be the head of your household, so you’ll likely need to continue working while in recovery.
