Our outpatient treatment program is essentially a more flexible and less time-consuming version of residential treatment. We provide all of the same services, ensuring that each of our clients is receiving the most integrated clinical care available. Our main goal is to help clients prevent relapse long-term, and go on to lead the fulfilling, substance-free lives they deserve.
Prescription Medications and Outpatient Rehab
Depending on which prescription medication was being abused and the severity of abuse, outpatient treatment can serve as a stand-alone option. However, it is often recommended that our outpatient treatment program serves as the final phase of a long-term continuum of clinical care – one that also includes medically monitored detox and residential rehab. There are several reasons why an individual might opt to enter into our outpatient program without first having completed residential treatment, including:
- The prescription drug abuse disorder is still very mild – For example, an individual who was prescribed Xanax for a severe panic disorder might have started taking slightly more than the recommended dose. This behavior might have gone on for one or two weeks, and before the substance abuse disorder became more severe the individual reached out for professional help. In a case like this, our outpatient treatment program would be an ideal standalone option.
- Someone is the primary caregiver for one or more dependents, or cannot take an extended break from his or her job – Our outpatient treatment program offers flexible clinical care that can easily be scheduled around your personal obligations and responsibilities.
- Financial circumstances – Outpatient treatment tends to be a significantly more affordable option. Guardian IOP also works with most major regional and national health insurance providers in order to make our program of recovery even more accessible.
- A higher level of clinical care has already been completed – The majority of men and women who transition into our outpatient program have already completed medical detox and residential treatment, and are looking for additional support as they navigate early sobriety.
