What to Expect at Outpatient Alcohol Rehab
What is Outpatient Alcohol Rehab
Outpatient alcohol rehab allows you to get help for your addiction while living at home.
Unlike a full-time program, this part-time care method gives you increased flexibility to find balance in your schedule.
These programs feature many of the same proven and holistic treatment methods as more intensive programs.
The biggest difference is the amount of time you spend in each program.
Because there are shorter time requirements in outpatient alcohol rehab, there may be certain limitations of access to care.
For this reason, outpatient care programs are ideal for some clients more than others.

You have access to our dedicated addiction and medical staff, healthy meals, therapy sessions, support groups, and holistic remedies.

In most addiction treatment clinics, alcohol is the most commonly abused substance. Alcoholism affects many different people across many different backgrounds and lifestyles. In part, this may be due to how easy to find and normalized it has become. Drinking alcohol is a common trend at most social gatherings from birthdays to business meetings and holiday parties to happy hours.
Many people drink to ease stress or to celebrate. This kind of ease and normalization can make it hard to recognize how damaging alcohol can be. There are dozens of mental and physical heal impairments that are linked to alcohol abuse and alcoholism. Over time, your side effects and impairments will likely get worse. Ignoring the problem will not make it go away. Addressing and treating your alcoholism is the best way to overcome it. Help is available through our holistic, personalized care programs, and our outpatient alcohol rehab.
Risk Factors for Alcoholism
Normalization is not the only risk factor for becoming an alcoholic. This is clear because many different adults drunk during social gatherings or celebrations without becoming addicted. Watching this happen around you may be discouraging. And it may make it harder for you to see and accept the fact that you have a problem. But many different underlying factors contribute to alcoholism rates, and they are not present in everyone. Everyone is different. One of the most common risk factors for alcoholism is genetics.
Numerous studies have indicated that genetics account for between 45 and 65% of the liability of developing alcoholism. Early exposure, underlying mental health disorders, damaging thought patterns and behaviors, and relapse triggers are other risk factors. The addictive and mind-altering qualities of alcohol make alcoholism increasingly difficult to avoid. Whatever risk factors and relapse triggers you have faced, our outpatient alcohol rehab can help. We will work together to evaluate, address, and improve underlying risk factors, mental health complications, and relapse triggers throughout your treatment program.
Mental Health and Alcoholism
Alcohol impairs your judgment and reaction times, which is why it is so often connected to driving accidents. In 2016, 40.7% of all fatal driving accidents involved alcohol. Additionally, alcoholism is connected to both depression and suicide. When addictions and underlying mental health disorders co-exist, we call the combination a dual diagnosis. Alcoholism and depression is a common dual diagnosis.
We offer a highly specialized, holistic, and effective care program built to address this complicated combination. If you have a dual diagnosis, we may recommend starting with a more intensive addiction care program. But that does not mean it must be full-time. You may be better suited for an intensive outpatient care program or a partial hospitalization program. We will work with you to determine which programs would best suit your unique addiction and needs.
