What is an outpatient rehabilitation?
Outpatient rehabilitation offers a less restrictive rehabilitation program that inpatient programs do. Outpatient rehabilitation programs usually require around 10 to 12 hours a week spent visiting a local treatment center.
These rehabilitation sessions focus on drug abuse education, individual and group counseling, and teaching addicted people how to cope without drugs. Outpatient rehabilitation can be a great standalone option for anyone with a mild addiction, or it can be a part of a long-term treatment program. Outpatient rehabilitation can last anywhere from three to six months or over a year depending on each individuals circumstances and what we would recommend for their ultimate success.
What’s the difference between outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation?
Rehabilitation treatment programs fall into one of two categories: inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation. While equally focusing on rehabilitation, each type has its unique attributes and benefits to offer. Inpatient rehabilitation treatment programs are designed to treat serious addictions while outpatient rehabilitation treatment programs are more part-time allowing the recovering user to keep going to work or school during the day.

What is the rehabilitation process?
Outpatient rehabilitation process helps an individual to achieve the highest level of function, independence and quality of life possible. Rehabilitation does not reverse or undo any previous damage that may have been caused, but rather helps to restore the individual to optimal health, functioning and well-being.
Rehabilitation programs are designed to meet each person’s specific needs; therefore, each customizable plan is different for each person. Some general treatment components that are accessible within the rehabilitation program include the following:
- Pain Management Treatment
- Physical Therapy
- Individual Coaching
- Team Building Workshops
- Medication Management
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Suboxone Treatment
Outpatient rehabilitation treatment programs are safe, effective and take less time to complete than inpatient detox rehabilitation treatment programs.

When going through outpatient rehabilitation programs you will get one or more types of therapy from NuHope if you need it. You will be able to set goals yourself, but the main goal of an outpatient rehabilitation program is for the treatments being exercised on the patient allows them to understand what sets them off and work towards the common goal of staying healthy and being able to go about your daily life without letting the previous bombs set you back.
