"The goal of outpatient treatment is to help patients achieve autonomy to be able to reintegrate back into the community."
Offering 1 to 3 hours of clinical treatment a week, the outpatient program is the final phase of treatment following IOP. Clients will be able to balance much of their daily life while participating in the program.
Within the outpatient drug and alcohol addiction treatment program, we ensure that clients are following up with all aftercare recommendations. The healthy skills they have developed from previous treatment levels will greatly help them regain control of their lives.
The goal of outpatient treatment is to help clients achieve autonomy and to be able to reintegrate back into the community. We also aim to minimize their chances of relapse by offering relapse prevention counseling as well as clinical treatment or psychiatric treatment.
As patients progress throughout the outpatient program, we encourage them to become active members in our alumni program, ensuring long term sobriety.
"Outpatient treatment helps individuals explore and overcome their unique concerns and fears."
Clients who have completed the first treatment programs find themselves in a vulnerable recovery period. The chances for relapse are higher during the first one to three months outside of clinical care. Consequently, our outpatient program can last up to six months, depending on the client’s personal needs.
During the outpatient program, clients live at home and commute to our treatment center as needed throughout the week. This gives clients the flexibility to fulfill their responsibilities at home, work, or school, using their newfound coping skills.
Outpatient treatment helps individuals explore and overcome their unique concerns and fears. This is why our counselors will be making a personalized treatment plan with the client.
At Foundations Wellness Center Pennsylvania, we offer a wide range of counseling and therapies designed to heal dependencies. The outpatient program includes:
We understand that addiction affects not only the individual, but also the people that the individual is surrounded by. However, we want clients and their loved ones to understand that a strong support system is critical in preventing relapse and achieving a successful recovery. That’s why we include family therapy in the treatment program, and we encourage family members to provide accountability when our clients are not participating in treatment. Family therapy has the goal of mending familial relationships so that the client can lean on family support throughout the recovery.
"A great amount of responsibility is needed before entering the outpatient program."
Foundations Wellness’s outpatient treatment program is designed for patients who are not at risk medically or psychiatrically and can participate in regular sessions.
Those who choose outpatient rehab as their ideal treatment choice are individuals with mild to moderate addictions. An outpatient treatment may provide enough care for those who do not require acute care to recover.
Being the most autonomous form of care, the outpatient program is also ideal for those who have completed more intensive levels of care, are in good health, and who maintain a successful life outside of treatment. Some of the benefits for choosing an outpatient rehab include:
However, this type of treatment is not suitable for those requiring intensive support to quit their addiction. A great amount of responsibility is needed before entering the outpatient program. If an individual suffers from a severe addiction or their home environment is unstable, we recommend starting with an inpatient-style or partial hospitalization program.
