Outpatient

outpatient addiction programs

If you are someone who is struggling with an addictive disorder or any mental illnesses, a residential (inpatient) or outpatient program provides a comprehensive level of care. Each program is designed so the member achieves recovery. Before a member can start an outpatient program or any other treatment, they must first go through detox.

The typical length of treatment for a member enrolled in our outpatient treatment is individualized to their needs. A set of psychosocial and pharmacological services are provided that allows individuals to live at home, to work, and to care for themselves and their families.

The Prevalence of Addiction

According to the SAMHSA (The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services) national survey on addiction, approximately 23 million people (12 years and older) in the United States, are suffering from drug or alcohol use disorders. That makes 9.3% of the total population, which is an alarming number.

The survey further reported that out of all these individuals, only 11.2% receive the required treatment. That means choosing the right drug and alcohol use treatment program is imperative to your health.

Both residential and outpatient treatment programs are highly effective and reliable in helping people stabilize and recover from substance use disorder. There are key distinctions that need to be considered before opting for one.

These key differences make them less, or more appropriate for an individual’s needs. These treatment options also depend on the length, severity, and level of addiction.

At Sana Lake Recovery Center, we have qualified treatment professionals. These individuals perform an in-person diagnostic assessment to help people choose the right option.

Each member in our Outpatient Program will also have access to a Peer Support Specialist who is certified by the state of Missouri. The Peer Support Specialist will help you find connections with others. They also offer guidance navigating treatment and will offer a sense of belonging while supporting you with motivation to continue treatment and ongoing, long-term recovery.

To understand the outpatient treatment, it is important to know the key features of a residential treatment program.

What is an Inpatient or Residential Treatment Program?

Residential treatment programs provide a structured environment. Members are kept away from stressful circumstances that may trigger them to use drugs again. Inpatient programs aim to remove the triggers from an individual’s life and provide them with a safe space where they can recover.

In residential treatment, members voluntarily choose a secure facility where they receive intensive care and around-the-clock monitoring to prevent the risk of relapse. This program is ideal for people who find outpatient treatment complex to achieve success.

Moreover, residential or inpatient treatment is suitable for those who need detoxification services to prevent withdrawal symptoms. The individuals can benefit from intensive care and detox services in the residential treatment program.

At Sana Lake Recovery Center, we recommend that our members undergo an intensive care treatment regimen after their detoxification treatment. It helps them learn about substance use disorders in an immersive and supportive environment.

A residential program involves highly intensive care. It is ideal for individuals who require heavily structured treatment and assistance to achieve success.

Counseling professionals at Sana Lake help members to determine what treatment is right for them through an in-person assessment. We have family counselors and well as mental health counselors to help you identify and work through unique areas in your life.

What is Outpatient Alcohol and Drug Treatment?

Outpatient programs provide flexibility. This is helpful in allowing individuals to maintain their regular commitment to work, education, and other family responsibilities. Although there are similarities between the outpatient drug program and residential treatment, both the programs have a differently structured environment.

Members can return home after receiving treatment. This freedom of movement gives members a great level of anonymity and privacy. They can continue with their routine task and day to day responsibilities.

Unlike inpatient treatment programs, the treatment center is not responsible for providing a structured environment. Individuals return to their homes after outpatient alcohol or drug treatment.

This treatment program requires people to abstain from the use of drugs voluntarily. That means outpatient treatment requires a great deal of diligence and commitment from recovering individuals. It also requires a supportive setting free from temptation in their home environment

How Outpatient is Structured at Sana Lake

At Sana Lake Recovery Center, a medical counselor develops a comprehensive outpatient treatment plan to provide a strong support network for members. That includes official support groups, family counseling, and individual counseling. These counseling sessions are administered to motivate members and ensure success in the recovery process.

We include sponsors and non-using peers in support networks. To facilitate long-term recovery, our outpatient drug treatment combines support groups and group therapies to bring a positive social change in the lives of those in recovery.

These positive elements in outpatient treatment influence recovering individuals’ lifestyles. They automatically start applying the lessons from the therapy to their daily lives.

Why is Outpatient Treatment Beneficial for Recovering Individuals?

Typically, outpatient treatment works for people who have responsibilities and commitments to fulfill during recovery. These commitments include job, family, children, and education. Plus, outpatient treatment is beneficial for those who are not suffering from a severe substance use disorder.

Outpatient treatment carries the risk of relapse. Relapse is common with long-term substance use. Members suffering from this history of substance use need residential treatment. Therefore, our substance use disorder counselors only recommend outpatient treatment if they have a supportive and safe living environment at home.

The following are the key benefits of outpatient treatment:

  • Continuing a normal life routine
  • Continuing with job, education, and any outside responsibilities
  • Less time commitment
  • Staying in the family environment

Why Should You Opt for Outpatient Treatment?

In addition to these benefits, outpatient treatment has the lowest level of restriction and supervision. As this treatment program is based on the non-residential setting, individuals can choose the therapy or treatment schedule that suits them best.

Outpatient provides flexibility when it comes to seeking a balance between the treatment and fulfilling personal and professional responsibilities.

The outpatient treatment program is less expensive as well. At Sana Lake, our programs last three months. Plus, we incorporate family therapies in our outpatient program. This is where the member’s family provides care and attention by attending therapy sessions.
