When You Do Not Feel Ready for Outpatient Rehab
Making the jump into an outpatient rehab center is a big step in your addiction treatment.
Outpatient rehab provides many of the same services you are already receiving.
After going through detox and inpatient care it is time to transition out of inpatient care.
Now is the time to put everything you have learned to practical use.

You may not have anything to go home to or the people that are there may negatively impact your recovery.
The good news is that when the time gets closer to discharge your addiction team will go over all your concerns.
Ask as many questions as you can so you can be better prepared for the transition into outpatient care.

Sober living homes can provide structure and support so you can move forward in recovery.
If you are concerned about the environment where you will return too, notify your treatment team ASAP.
There are places that you can go to that will provide you a safe and secure place.
When you feel safe, you can worry less about relapsing.
However, it takes time to find the best match.
Make sure you share your concerns because this information is time-sensitive.
Support Will Continue
As you transition into outpatient rehab recovery you will not be without support.
Inpatient care helps to take the stress off of having to make choices.
However, at some point it is important in your recovery that you resume this control over your own life.
It may seem terrifying at first. Don’t worry, you will continue to receive the best care but, with fewer restrictions.
You should never feel you can’t ultimately manage these choices for yourself.
The goal of your treatment is to push you towards making healthier choices so you can build a better future.
What Is Outpatient Rehab?
There is an expectation that you begin making choices as you start the transition to outpatient rehab. Outpatient rehab is a type of recovery and care service for addiction. It is another phase of treatment that helps you to stay at home or transition housing while engaging in continued addiction treatment.
Through outpatient rehab, you will have more freedom to make your own choices. At this stage in treatment, you can begin your responsibilities for work, home, and school. At first, you will be required to attend numerous scheduled therapy sessions. As you progress and become more confident in your recovery, your treatment plan will reflect your progress.
Everything about outpatient care is based on your progress. Outpatient rehab will include continued participation in support groups and therapy. At no point in the process will you be cut off from, unless you choose to drop out. Everything you learned about your addiction can finally be put to sustainable practice.
How you properly manage your stress and relapse triggers will accurately determine your progress in outpatient rehab. As you travel to and from outpatient rehab you will report about your progress. This will include your emotions, self-care, and your active participation in support groups.
The process is the same for everyone in addiction recovery. Building moral strength in your recovery as you work towards making positive choices. How each one gets there may be a bit different, but the end is the same, sustainable recovery.
How long does Outpatient Rehab last?
The period of outpatient rehab is usually 1 or 3 months. The first few months after the transition into outpatient rehab is the greatest probability of relapse. It will also depend on your progress, recovery, physical health, and mental stability for the duration of time you spend in the outpatient care facility. At first, the schedule may be intense, meeting several times a week.
As you progress and meet your milestones treatment begins to slow. A hallmark of outpatient rehab is that is solely your responsibility to continue your recovery. Outpatient rehab requires you to be committed, disciplined, and dedicated to your recovery goals. You will be held accountable for your treatment schedule.
Benefits of Outpatient Rehab
Outpatient drug rehab is something to be celebrated. This is the point of your treatment where everything begins to come together. At this point in recovery, you can truly begin to see and feel the benefits of living sober.
Freshly sober and full of goals. Thrive on the support you have garnered from therapy to help you feel strong. Now you are granted the freedom to begin living a life of your choosing. Not something your addiction chose for you. A higher level of privacy is another benefit of outpatient care.
You will not have to explain away your absence. Outpatient rehab is less intensive. While in outpatient rehab you will be empowered to continue living sober while at home using all the support and guidance you have received thus far.
What to Expect When Transitioning to Outpatient Rehab
As you start the process of moving out of inpatient care, you will begin the next phase in your treatment. The first step is planning your transition into outpatient rehab. This will include multiple steps. Each part will support your recovery efforts, manage cravings, and prevent relapses. There will be many challenges that you will face. Transitioning from supervised care to personally responsibility is tough. The goal of outpatient rehab is to help you deal with everyday triggers, stresses, and temptations. Here are 4 key parts to a great outpatient rehab plan.
Immediate Placement in Rehab
Structure is an important part of returning to the world outside. Leaving the comfort and safety of a high structure inpatient care may come as a culture shock. For you, the time may have stopped, while everything around you continued. Without guidance or structure, it can become very stressful quickly.
2. Relapse Prevention
The first year of recovery is the hardest. Outpatient care can help support and guide you. Practice proven techniques in real-life situations that can help you resist temptation.
3. Discover Yourself
This is your time to shine. Choosing who you will become after rehab has already begun. Set goals. Try new activities. Make connections with other sober-minded people. Outpatient rehab paves the way for you to make new connections. Newly sober life is full of amazing opportunities to grow.
4. Heal Relationships
Making amends is an important part of outpatient alcohol rehab. It will be challenging, but a strong motivator to continue in recovery. Everything you learned in therapy will be especially valuable in teaching you the life skills needed to stop destructive cycles. Once you are established in recovery, you can slowly begin regaining the trust and respect of those you love.
