Intensive Outpatient Alcohol Treatment Program

Signing up for rehabilitation at in inpatient facility is a difficult, stressful decision for many alcoholics and their loved ones. That’s why outpatient alcohol rehabilitation can be so attractive. Treatment that doesn’t absolutely require the addict to “put their life on hold” means that, if capable, the addict can continue to meet their responsibilities at home. It means continued freedom to enjoy everyday activities. If you want to know more, dial 877-352-6329 to get in touch with the placement counselors today.

Types of Alcohol Outpatient Programs

There are probably more types of outpatient rehab programs than you may think. Some meet at full-time addiction rehab facilities. Others meet in public locations throughout the community. Some involve group therapy sessions and others are completely private. Still others combine both private and group therapy sessions. Some alcohol outpatient programs don’t require that the addict take any medications and others offer medications if they will help the addict get through the worst cravings during withdrawal.

Do you know which type of program would work best for you or your loved one? Most people don’t. But the qualified placement counselors at do.

Advantages of Outpatient Alcohol Treatment Programs

When enrolled in an outpatient program, the most obvious benefit is that the addict can continue to go home between sessions. This allows them to still go to work or school or meet other responsibilities. Outpatient alcohol programs allow addicts to still meet with friends and family and to enjoy everyday activities without needing a therapist’s permission. The one drawback is that not every addict can juggle all of these things without getting overly stressed or without giving into the temptation of drinking more alcohol.

The Intensive Outpatient Program Alcohol Addiction

In some cases, addicts need a more intensive form of treatment than the typical outpatient alcohol treatment programs allow. Some of the outpatient programs we recommend meet as often as every day, for several hours per day. This can prove especially helpful in the earliest weeks of the process, when the cravings are especially strong.

In some cases, if such an intensive outpatient program alcohol an addict needs is not available in the addict’s area, we may recommend staying at a hotel near the program during the most intensive days. Alternatively, we may recommend inpatient treatment. If you have any questions about the pros and cons of inpatient or outpatient treatment, call 877-352-6329 now to speak directly with a counselor.
