Outpatient Rehab in Massachusetts

Outpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Massachusetts and elsewhere varies by the type and intensity of treatment. Generally speaking, however, outpatient programs provide treatment at a Massachusetts rehab facility of some sort, but the patient lives in his or her own residence.6 This type of treatment is sometimes used following inpatient treatment, allowing patients to continue the work of their residential programs while living in their own homes or sober living facilities.

Additionally, intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) in Massachusetts can provide similar services to inpatient options but with some meetings held on weekends and in the evenings, allowing participants to attend school or work.6 Along these same lines, a partial hospitalization program (PHP), or day treatment program, is a type of IOP.7 A sort of midway point between inpatient and outpatient care, day treatment programs in Massachusetts provide less intense levels of care than inpatient programs but slightly higher levels of care than general outpatient treatment.8,9

Myriad individuals can benefit from outpatient rehab. However, those who do best in this type of treatment should have: the willingness and ability to attend counseling regularly, supportive family or friends, a suitable place to live, and access to reliable transportation.6

According to, which is provided by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the following numbers and types of outpatient drug and alcohol rehab facilities are available in Massachusetts.10

  • Outpatient: 286
  • Partial Hospital Programs (PHPs): 50
  • Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs): 81

Some providers can offer a host of services in addition to their outpatient options. For example, American Addiction Centers provides multiple rehab facilities across the United States.
