Outpatient Rehab in Costa Mesa
What is Outpatient Rehab?
Outpatient rehab in Costa Mesa CA is a type of addiction treatment program that is designed to be more flexible than an inpatient or residential detox. This type of rehab program is usually recommended to anybody who has completed an inpatient program and is also a good fit for many people who have mild addictions, those who prefer not to move into one of our full-time rehab centers, and those who need to remain working, going to school, or taking care of other life responsibilities as they get the treatment they need.
Entering an outpatient treatment plan usually involves:
- Professional interventions
- One-on-one counseling
- Behavioral therapy
- Group therapy like alcoholics anonymous
- Process groups
Patients in outpatient rehab centers at Resurgence Behavioral Health Orange County generally live at home or in a sober living home and then commute into their outpatient treatment center on a regular basis for therapy, counseling, case management, and other services. A person in outpatient rehab will gain all the tools, skills, resources, and support needed to get sober and take back control over their life, with the continued option to drop into any Resurgence center for a 12-step or SMART Recovery meeting, or to schedule additional therapy sessions when needed.
Is Outpatient Rehab Effective for Alcohol and Drug Addiction?

Types of Outpatient Rehab Programs
There are several types of outpatient programs available to choose from at Resurgence Behavioral Health. Our intake addictions specialists will work with you to figure out which of these programs is right for your individual needs. The options include our:
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) – The PHP is usually a short-term program to help people who are moving from inpatient detox or rehab and outpatient care, helping them make the transition through full days of groups and therapy as they live outside the facility, gradually gaining more personal responsibility. Clinical care is provided, along with strong support and guidance.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) – The IOP is a flexible outpatient program that can work around your normal, everyday schedule, allowing you to return to your life as you get addiction treatment. You will have a healthy support system that will provide community and alternatives when you are presented with challenges out in the world. In some Resurgence locations, there is also a virtual IOP option, with online meetings and therapy given via a telehealth platform.
Outpatient Aftercare Program – Outpatient aftercare programs at Resurgence are even less regimented than the IOP, allowing you to make appointments for therapy, medical treatment, and other services as needed. The outpatient program can last as long as you like, even months or years after rehab is complete. You will remain in contact with our sober community of alumni, and be invited to meetups, barbecues, and other get-togethers. We also offer referrals to sober living homes in your area if you would prefer to live in a structured environment that will hold you accountable.
When is Inpatient Rehab a Better Option?
For many people, outpatient programs may be a good option, but for others, spending 30 to 90 days in an inpatient rehab program first is a good idea. Inpatient rehab provides a structured schedule without distractions, access to drugs and alcohol, or life’s everyday stresses, so you can gain a new perspective on life, learn new, healthy behaviors and habits, and change the way you think about the world around you.
Inpatient rehab may be better for you if you:
- Have not completed a medical detox or medication assisted detox program
- Are dealing with a co occurring mental health issue like depression, bipolar disorder or anxiety that requires dual diagnosis treatment
- Still experiencing withdrawal symptoms or drug cravings
- Need any type of full-time medical care
- Lack motivation or may find it difficult to get yourself to appointments and therapy on your own
- Have trouble managing your own calendar
- Do not live in a stable and supportive environment
- Have people in your home who are actively drinking and/or using drugs
- Do not feel emotionally stable and ready to do what it takes to stay sober
- May not be able to control your drug and alcohol intake when home alone, or are showing other signs of relapsing
In inpatient rehab, you will be able to focus on your own healing, in a safe and sober environment as you live full-time inside the facility, with full days of therapy, counseling, education, recreation, and other programming and services. Once you have completed your time in inpatient care, you may move on to an outpatient program that best suits your unique needs.
Outpatient Rehab in Costa Mesa at Resurgence
Residents of Costa Mesa can access all outpatient resources offered at Resurgence Behavioral Health. If you are transitioning out of an inpatient or residential treatment plan, we can help you deal with triggers by helping you stick to the coping mechanisms you learned in rehab. Triggers can make you feel distressed and may cause you to act compulsively, but when you join our outpatient continuum of care, you will continue to receive support, guidance, and counseling from our expert staff for as long as you want it.
Outpatient rehab at Resurgence, Costa Mesa, can take as long as you need it to. Our goal is to offer continued support in as many ways as possible, including:
- Group sessions
- Therapy appointments
- Medical care
- Dual diagnosis treatments
- Psychiatric care
- Vocational and life skills training
- Voluntary alumni events
- Opportunities to make sober friendships
- Reinforcing recovery skills and tools as you try them out in your life
When you are in outpatient care, your at-home support system is key, but it is important to recognize that caring for a person fresh out of rehab is a big responsibility, and is not something everybody is ready and equipped to do. If you are living in your home, you and your family may want to seek relationship or family therapy, to help you rebuild any damaged relationships due to drug and alcohol use, and to help them to understand what you are going through and learn the best ways to support you without enabling your substance abuse.
With Resurgence, you can become involved in our alumni community if you wish, not only using our community as a support system but also offering your own wisdom and support to others who need it. You can attend gatherings, social outings, meetings, and reunions, create new and sober friendships, and find new ways to spend your time as a drug- and alcohol-free individual.
The longer you spend in addiction treatment, the less likely you are to experience a relapse. Whether you are leaving inpatient rehab, or are entering outpatient rehab directly after your medical detox, you are certain to have all the treatments, care, and support you need in our partial hospitalization program, our intensive outpatient program, and our outpatient and aftercare programs to regain control over your life and begin down the road to recovery at your own pace.
