What Is Outpatient Rehab?

For many people who are living with substance use disorder, Miami outpatient rehab offers a flexible schedule that provides the opportunity to go through the recovery process while still adhering to the responsibilities they have outside of treatment.

The aim of addiction treatment is to provide patients with the skills, support, and strategies that they need to maintain long-term sobriety. There are several types of outpatient rehab in Miami, including partial hospitalization programs (PHPs), intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), and standard outpatient programs.

Upon admission to a Miami outpatient rehab for drug or alcohol addiction treatment, patients will typically go through a medical evaluation, which helps the clinical team outline a personalized treatment strategy. This evaluation may include: 

  • Learning the patient’s history of drug and alcohol use.
  • Obtaining information about the patient’s general health.
  • A drug screen. 
  • Learning about the patient’s living environment and what other social support they can access.

Benefits of Outpatient Addiction Treatment

Outpatient rehab can be a good fit for people with a stable and safe living environment. This form of treatment enables patients to choose a rehab program that fits their schedule, allowing patients to keep up with home or work responsibilities.2

Additionally, outpatient rehab can be a good step down after completing an inpatient or residential rehab program.

Outpatient Treatment Therapies at Recovery First

  • Motivational enhancement therapy: This counseling approach works to help you become internally motivated, encouraging you to discuss your substance use disorder and develop motivational thoughts and coping strategies to help you stay sober.
  • Contingency management: This type of therapy uses tangible rewards to help you stay on track in your recovery.
  • 12-Step facilitation: Following the basic tenets of acceptance, surrender, and active participation in recovery, 12-Step programs provide many people with substance use disorder with a framework for sobriety.

Recovery First also provides:

  • Evaluation and treatment for co-occurring disorders: Many people living with drug or alcohol addiction who are seeking outpatient rehab Miami have additional mental health issues. Research has found that simultaneous treatment of addiction and co-occurring disorders is generally more effective than addressing one at a time.2
  • Medications for substance use disorder: When appropriate, medications may be administered to decrease withdrawal symptoms or cravings, allowing patients to focus on addressing the factors that contribute to their addiction.
  • Aftercare planning: Before leaving treatment, counselors work with each patient to facilitate their entry into continuing care programs (e.g., 12-step groups, vocational programs, life-skills training) that will help them maintain their recovery.

What’s the Difference Between Inpatient and Outpatient Rehab?

Both inpatient and outpatient treatment have pros and cons. Inpatient rehab may be a better fit than outpatient rehab for people who do not have a supportive home environment, have severe co-occurring disorders, or are looking for a more intensive treatment plan.2

Since outpatient care allows patients to return home in the evenings, this may be a better fit for those who have work or family responsibilities that they are unable to delegate during their time in treatment, and for those who have a supportive network of family or friends to help them stay on track during the hours they aren’t at the treatment facility.2
