The outpatient program (OP) at the Atlanta treatment center is for those who wish to receive necessary addiction treatment while living in their own home. They can do this while fulfilling everyday work, family, or school duties. During outpatient rehab, patients meet with therapists or counselors for weekly appointments.
We offer a wide variety of therapies under the outpatient care umbrella. They are designed to help people manage their addiction and decrease their risk of relapse. Our outpatient program is founded on evidence-based therapeutic modalities. These include dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma therapy, group therapy, family therapy, and medication-assisted treatment (MAT).
We also offer complementary therapies like yoga, therapeutic massage, and mindfulness meditation. Such programs are designed to help patients transition from intensive treatment to less restrictive treatment. They can then strengthen their ability to independently manage recovery.
Of course, outpatient treatment is not appropriate for everyone. For instance, IOP treatment may be best for someone who has greater difficulties with substance use disorder, or for someone who does not live in a supportive household. An outpatient program is perfect for those who have completed an inpatient or residential treatment program. It eases them back into the life they want after treatment.
