Treatment for drug and alcohol abuse and addiction can be done on either on an “inpatient” or “outpatient” basis. The main advantage of outpatient drug rehab treatment is that it offers clients the opportunity to attend counseling sessions while maintaining the most significant aspects of “regular” life (like attending work, school, and living at home).

Cedar Point Recovery offers an intensive outpatient program (IOP), which includes nine total hours of counseling each week.  In general, IOP clients attend treatment in three-hour blocks, three days per week.

Depending upon clinical recommendations and insurance arrangements, IOP may last up to 16 weeks.

Who is Qualified for Outpatient Drug Rehab Treatment?

In general, outpatient drug rehab treatment is available for clients who:

  • have successfully completed a more intensive program (like an inpatient program),
  • have a lesser degree of addiction or substance abuse, or
  • are not in a state of physical dependence where round-the-clock supervision is clinically recommended.

How Does Outpatient Drug Rehab Treatment Work?

Outpatient treatment provides clients with the tools needed to identify and prevent addictive behaviors, and ultimately to build a fulfilling life free from alcohol and other drugs.

Our outpatient drug rehab treatment programs take a holistic approach. In addition to individual and group counseling, outpatient treatment may include counseling about:

  • family matters
  • health care
  • parenting skills
  • job search and employment
  • legal issues

Our outpatient treatment teams work with clients to address any factors that may present barriers to long-term recovery.

Factors Influencing Outpatient Drug Rehab Treatment Programs

The treatment program team at Cedar Point looks at any factors that may influence the treatment of a client’s addiction, including:

  • type of addiction
  • duration of addiction
  • physical health
  • family status
  • other mental illness
  • personal and professional commitments

These are just some of the factors that must be considered in planning the most effective outpatient treatment program for you. Our treatment professionals and treatment programs are equipped to handle a wide variety of substance abuse issues.

Other Disorders Influencing Outpatient Drug Rehab Treatment Programs

Many people suffering from drug and alcohol abuse and addiction also have separate and distinct mental health issues. These issues can include:

  • depression
  • bi-polar disorder
  • generalized anxiety disorder
  • schizophrenia
  • panic disorders
  • borderline personality disorder
  • post-traumatic stress disorder

Cedar Point coordinates with Psychiatrists and Psychologists to thoroughly evaluate client mental health issues, allowing us to make sure that clients receive comprehensive outpatient treatment. These combined services are designed to help our clients restore peace to their lives, work towards a full recovery, and live free from addiction.

Aftercare Following Outpatient Drug Rehab Treatment

After you complete an outpatient treatment program with us, we will carefully coordinate aftercare for you with our extensive network of addiction specialists across the United States. We will identify an appropriate aftercare program in your area and work with you to develop and implement strategies to prevent relapse into active addiction.

Outcome studies reveal that clients who participate in ongoing monitoring programs after treatment have the greatest chance of maintaining abstinence. These services are mandatory for certain healthcare professionals, pilots, transportation workers, and other employees.

Ongoing monitoring provides an added incentive and a much-needed boost in relapse prevention.  We believe these services should be incorporated into an aftercare plan for our clients who are serious about recovering. We offer these services through our Alumni Association and case managers with whom we have relationships.
