Addiction recovery can—and should—look very different for each person. Though accessing professional treatment is of the utmost importance, an intensive inpatient program may not always be the best choice. Some individuals have commitments that can’t be put on hold, and others may struggle with being away from their family and friends. When inpatient treatment isn’t possible, there are other treatment options available to meet your needs. An outpatient addiction treatment program in California could be the right path for your recovery, and New Bridge Foundation® can help.
New Bridge Foundation® offers robust and affordable options for outpatient addiction treatment, including telehealth services for California residents. As a result of our stellar inpatient and outpatient treatment, we also have been ranked as one of America’s “Best Addiction Treatment Centers” by Newsweek magazine for the second consecutive year (2020, 2021). If you or a loved one are interested in pursuing outpatient treatment, call New Bridge Foundation® today at 866.772.8491.
What Is Outpatient Treatment?
Some clients, depending on how much and for how long they have been using, require detoxification or could benefit from the structure of an inpatient program. However, many people seek treatment through an outpatient program, where the client lives at home but attends treatment on a regular basis. This option is often best suited for clients who have safe and supportive home environments or people with less severe addictions. Some people may even turn to outpatient treatment to receive continued care after finishing an inpatient program. In a short-term outpatient treatment program like the one at New Bridge Foundation®, individuals can continue the important work begun in residential treatment by participating in outpatient treatment.
Some of the outpatient treatment services we offer include:
- Individual counseling
- Group counseling
- 12-step meetings
- Family education
- Free aftercare for life
Three Benefits of Outpatient Treatment
1. Outpatient Treatment Allows for Flexibility
Many clients who struggle with addiction lead busy lives that include family responsibilities, jobs, and/or school, which may conflict with their desire to get sober. For some, it is simply not feasible to attend an inpatient program.
An outpatient program allows greater flexibility for those who are unable to enter residential treatment. Since clients live at home and access virtual treatment options, there is far less disruption in their daily lives. Clients can attend school, work as usual, and care for their families while still receiving the treatment necessary for a stable long-term recovery.
2. Outpatient Treatment Keeps Clients Close to Support Structures
Some clients feel that remaining close to the support and encouragement of their loved ones, while receiving treatment, is important. Clients who feel the need to remain at home with family can receive the help they need and avoid being away from these relationships through outpatient treatment.
Outpatient care programs are also a great option as clients transition from inpatient care and adjust to living at home again. Outpatient care allows clients to continue the important work begun during inpatient care by receiving continued support and education while they adjust to living at home again.
3. Outpatient Treatment is More Private
Outpatient treatment offers the chance for clients to receive the help they need from the comfort and privacy of their own home. Clients who have participated in our virtual Intensive Outpatient Program report that they appreciate the ease with which they can access treatment and the added sense of privacy and security that is provided by Telehealth services. In our outpatient program, you can continue your daily life as normal and will not have to disrupt your daily routines.
