Addiction treatment is your ticket to getting the help you need to fight substance abuse and reclaim your life. Sounds great, right? Well, getting the right treatment isn’t always easy.
For starters, addiction treatment can seem intimidating and overwhelming. And then there’s the issue of time. Between work, school and taking care of your family, when can you possibly find the time to go to treatment?
Fortunately, outpatient treatment could be the solution you need. In this article, we’ll cover 5 key benefits of outpatient addiction treatment and why you should consider Fountain Hills Recovery for rehab.
Why Outpatient Treatment is so Beneficial for Addiction Recovery
1. You Can Live at Home
While there are many benefits to residential treatment, it can be challenging to leave home and live somewhere else for several months during rehab. With outpatient addiction treatment, you’re able to live at home and commute to and from treatment. This can help you feel more comfortable and relaxed during your therapy sessions, since you know you’ll be able to return home afterwards and sleep in your own bed every night. After all, that extra piece of mind can make all the difference when challenging yourself in outpatient treatment.
2. You Can Stay Connected to Your Family
Maybe you have kids or a spouse who rely on you. Or maybe your parents, siblings or close friends serve as your support network. It can be extremely hard to leave your loved ones if you enter residential treatment.
Since you’ll be living at home in outpatient treatment, you’ll still be able to spend time with and stay connected to your loved ones. Maintaining these healthy connections and even making them stronger in family therapy sessions can enhance your recovery from addiction.*
*It’s important to note that if any of your relationships are toxic and influencing your addiction, you should distance yourself from those to help ensure successful recovery from substance abuse.
3. You Can Continue Working or Going to School
Let’s face it, you have mouths to feed and bills to pay. While it would be nice to only have to focus on treatment, some people just can’t afford to put their life on hold. You also may not want to tell your boss that you need several months off. Outpatient treatment can work around your schedule, so you can maintain your job or continue working towards that degree you’re trying to achieve. If outpatient treatment is a good fit for your specific situation, you don’t have to put work or school on hold.
4. You Will Have Access to Resources
Outpatient addiction treatment gives you access to resources in a convenient setting. Instead of having to set up a variety of appointments, outpatient treatment offers you the support you need all in one place. For example, Fountain Hills Recovery gives you the opportunity to meet privately with a trained and certified therapist. You’ll also get the chance to participate in group therapy and family therapy sessions, receive treatment for any dual diagnosis disorders you’re struggling with and learn relapse prevention strategies.
5. Outpatient Treatment Serves as a Stepping Stone after Residential Treatment
Outpatient treatment can stand as its own rehab program, but it is also a crucial next step after you complete residential treatment. In residential treatment, you spend months away from home focusing solely on your health and wellness after addiction. This can make returning to everyday life a jarring experience that could trigger addiction cravings.
Outpatient treatment serves as a strategic stepping stone before fully returning to your normal routine. You’ll continue to meet with your therapist and participate in group therapy sessions for support and guidance, all while slowly acclimating back to your everyday life.
