Outpatient Addiction Treatment at The Beaches Treatment Center
At The Beaches Treatment Center, our Outpatient Treatment Program is our lowest level of care. In many situations outpatient treatment for substance abuse can be used in situations where the individual wants to get sober but does not want to leave work, school or other responsibilities that would happen admitting into an inpatient treatment program. In most situations it is suggested to receive a medical detox for those struggling with drug abuse and addiction. A medical detox is required because of the withdrawal symptoms are often too intense for an individual suffering without medical care 24/7 during the initial purge process. If the cravings are too intense many recovering addicts return to use because of the lack of accountability of the outpatient treatment setting.
The severity of the addiction is always taken into consideration and at The Beaches Treatment Center, we take pride in offering all our clients a specialized treatment care plan.
The spectrum of addiction varies between mild, moderate and severe. In some cases, the client may only require a outpatient setting, whereas other situations, outpatient should be a lower level of care offered after an inpatient stay is completed. Outpatient would typically be advised in a mild case of substance abuse or addiction. At The Beaches we offer three different levels of care for addiction treatment, but always suggest a proper medical detox before coming into our programming. These levels start more frequent and intensive therapy to less intensive therapy as you move through your addiction treatment goals and according to therapist suggestions.
Outpatient Program for Addiction at The Beaches
At The Beaches Treatment Center, our Outpatient Program works the same way our higher levels of care work. A variety of therapy between one-on-one sessions with a primary addiction therapist, and peer group sessions supervised by an addiction specialist. A client in our Outpatient Program attend therapy sessions 9 hours or less weekly and are in the process of completely reintegrating with normal society. By the time we step down a client of ours into our Outpatient Program, they will already maintain a job, and have been integrated into a local recovery community meeting other people outside of just within the treatment program who are also choosing to live life clean and sober.

Length of Outpatient Rehab for Drugs and Alcohol
The goal of outpatient treatment program for addiction at The Beaches Treatment Center is to provide all of our clients with the knowledge, skills and resources to ensure they are able to reclaim their life from the grip of addiction.
Every client has their own path through treatment. We recognize that no two clients will ever have the same pace. There are many commonalities for most clients as they go through treatment, many challenges and needs are similar. We believe in treatment of the entire person, mind, body, and spirit. We know that is important for physical health to be managed because most of those suffering in active addiction have ignored physical health while using. We try and set a positive structure so the client can look at all aspects of their life that require attention so they can improve their overall selves. We know that the next step down would be returning to an unsupervised environment so we want our clients to be whole before they take on the challenge.
