Orange County Drug & Alcohol Outpatient Rehab
Outpatient treatment offers many benefits to help those leaving detox/residential to stay on the path of recovery. Unfortunately relapse is statistically very common in early recovery. Outpatient offers a level of accountability and assistance to aid individuals in remaining clean and sober through the first sixty days. We also help people get set up with other tools such as sober living and a sober fellowship that will support a recovery-centered lifestyle.
The main components of IOP are psychoeducation and therapy. Individuals learn about the disease of addiction, as well as any accompanying mood disorders which compound the issues (this is known as dual diagnosis). In addition to psychoeducation, this knowledge is put to use by learning self help tools in both group and individual therapy. These tools are crucial because addiction rewires brain function, and that maladaptive function persists for a long while even after all drugs and alcohol has been flushed from the system. This can be reversed through tools such as crisis planning, WRAP, and Matrix Model therapy.
Accountability in Early Recovery
One of the main reasons outpatient is so crucial is that it adds a safeguard of accountability to a very vulnerable time. This is done through several methods at Blue Coast Behavioral Health, including:
- Random drug testing
- Aftercare planning
- Group meetings and daily check-ins
- Group and individual therapy to keep on track
- A sober community network
These all provide different layers of protection that work together to continue on the journey of recovery.
