How the Outpatient Treatment Works
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:
- Individual counseling
- Group and family therapy
- Behavioral therapy
- Communication enhancement skills
- Psychiatric care for those with co-occurring disorders
- Medication management (if required)
- Relapse prevention techniques
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.
