    An addict may have to go through alcohol or drug withdrawal. While detox may be uncomfortable, it is not life-threatening.

In an inpatient or outpatient setting, detox can be managed medically.

    Outpatient addiction treatment is beneficial for people who are able to function well in their day-to-day lives. It is recommended for people who are not yet ready to end their relationships with friends or family members who might be encouraging drug and alcohol use.

    Intensive outpatient treatment is beneficial for:

    • People who do not meet the criteria for inpatient treatment.
    • People who are able to contribute to their own recovery outside of the treatment center.
    • People who are motivated towards recovery.

    Outpatient treatment programs provide drug and alcohol addiction treatment through individual sessions with a counselor, group therapy, 12-step meetings, and other activities to help individuals gain sober living skills. Most programs are designed for those individuals who have completed a medically supervised detoxification program and provide opportunities for clients to begin the process of early recovery.

    Outpatient programs also offer a level of medical support as needed and psychological backing through therapy. Clients are encouraged to live at home, though there may be some flexibility regarding this requirement based on the circumstances and needs of each patient.
