Six Benefits of Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab

Outpatient drug and alcohol rehab is a less intense alternative to inpatient rehab. It requires a limited number of participation hours per week and provides the education, treatment and support needed for early substance abuse and recovery.

Whether you need treatment for heroin, cocaine or alcohol addiction, outpatient rehab provides the flexibility you need to continue work, attend a school or care for your family and the support you need to overcome your addiction.

Is outpatient drug and alcohol rehab right for me?

The first signs of drug and alcohol addiction can be subtle and easy to overlook, but is a highly effective option for those in the beginning stages of addition or those who need continuing support following inpatient rehab.

Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is best suited for individuals with these characteristics:

A severe drug or alcohol addiction and in need of 24-hour support.
A danger to themselves or others.
A history of relapse (these individuals often need more support than an outpatient rehab programme offers).

Important Covid-19 Update!

Although we have had to adapt many aspects of our service to ensure the safety of our residents and staff team, much of our rehab programme remains the same. We are still taking referrals and are able to admit individuals to our residential programme under specific circumstances.

With the reduction in the national R rate, and given that all our services are currently free of infection amongst staff and patients, we are admitting patients to all of our services and will, therefore, follow our usual referral practice. We remain fully committed to working closely with commissioners in ensuring that potential patients have access to the treatment that they require, as close to home as possible.
