Outpatient Rehab Options

There are many options available for outpatient rehab in California. To ensure continued recovery, it is important to transition through the different levels of care based on a doctor’s recommendation. Drug and alcohol rehab may start in residential treatment but outpatient rehab programs are just as critical for sobriety.

Take advantage of the following outpatient rehab options for recovery:

  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP) – During IOP, individuals receive an intense regimen of addiction treatment and therapy services without staying at the rehab center.
  • Outpatient treatment program – Outpatient care provides flexibility for those who need to work, attend school, or take care of their family during the week.
  • Structured sober living – Sober living homes provide a drug-free place to stay along with events and activities to promote sobriety.
  • Alumni and community – After completing initial addiction recovery services, the alumni and community members stay connected to each other and their recovery resources. This provides extra accountability and well-being through community involvement.

If your home environment is not conducive to recovery, whether due to triggers or the presence of drugs, join a sober living program. While staying at a sober living home, you gain access to a safe living space and any outpatient treatment options.

The Importance of Sober Living Programs

Even after weeks or months of addiction treatment programs, returning home to an unstable environment can derail those efforts. Continuing on to the next level of care with a sober living program in Orange County helps individuals transition gradually back into daily routines.

Sober living homes are drug and alcohol-free settings for continued abstinence. From house activities and outpatient treatment and events, there are no opportunities to access old or new harmful substances of abuse.

Structured sober living during recovery is vital to provide necessary support after rehab. The staff team and peers in the house are right by your side. When addiction triggers occur, you know where to turn.

Another importance of structured sober living is to promote active involvement in addiction recovery. While doctors recommend staying at least 90 days in treatment, those who participate in sober living stay for an average of over 150 days according to a study in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs. This level of participation ensures the maximum benefits of recovery programs. The longer one stays active in recovery, the more effective that treatment is.

What to Expect at a Sober Living Home

Those staying at a sober living home can expect lots of laughter and life skill development. As individuals in recovery reintegrate into more responsibilities, it is crucial to also show the joys in life. With a group of like-minded men or women, the world is explored through fun activities promoting overall well-being and life skills training to prepare participants.

During structured sober living, one can expect the following:

  • On-site management to ensure guest safety
  • Personal accountability for growth, progress, and positive outlooks
  • Tutoring to gain the knowledge to improve personal finances or career opportunities
  • Job assistance to uncover strengths and ideal career placements
  • Community activities for large-scale bonding from ski trips to paintball
  • Yoga sessions to mitigate stress and promote mindfulness
