Outpatient alcohol rehab programs typically involve regular visits to a treatment center or clinic for therapy, counseling, and support groups. Unlike inpatient rehab, patients can live at home and continue with their daily responsibilities while attending outpatient rehab.
During outpatient alcohol rehab, patients will typically participate in individual and group therapy sessions, which can help them develop coping mechanisms, learn new life skills, and address any underlying mental health issues that may be contributing to their alcohol abuse. Treatment may also involve medical monitoring, medication-assisted treatment, and support group meetings.
The length and intensity of outpatient alcohol rehab programs can vary, but they typically last several weeks to several months, depending on the individual’s needs and progress in treatment.
