What Is Addiction Treatment for Drugs and Alcohol?
Rehab is a type of addiction treatment program which doesn’t require participants to stay overnight in a treatment facility. This is the primary way it’s different from inpatient rehab. During outpatient rehab, patients follow an individualized treatment plan, but they return home after treatment ends.
There are varying levels of intensity in terms of Annapolis outpatient rehab programs. For example, some programs might be very intensive and require a significant time commitment each week, while others may only require a few hours each week.
When someone participates in outpatient rehab, it does allow them to remain at home, with their family, and they can continue going to school or work as usual and meeting commitments in their daily life. There is a lot of flexibility that’s part of outpatient rehab, and this can be something participants see as advantageous.
Some of the situations where a person might benefit from an outpatient rehab program in Maryland include:
- A clinician recommends an outpatient program following a full medical assessment
- You don’t require a medical detox or the high level of care of an inpatient program
- You have already completed a higher-level program such as inpatient rehab and you are transitioning into a less intensive program
- You have commitments in your daily life that prevent you from enrolling in inpatient care, but you do need treatment for an addiction to drugs or alcohol

Types of Outpatient Rehab
While all outpatient rehab programs share a similarity in that they don’t require participants to stay overnight, there are different specific types of programs. Many of these programs are offered in the afternoon or evening, to help accommodate participant’s schedules.
As far as outpatient rehab and addiction treatment, day treatment is the most intensive type of program. Day treatment is also called partial hospitalization. During these programs, there is limited flexibility and the time commitment is significant.
During day treatment, patients are expected to participate in sessions throughout the day, and these treatment sessions are often held anywhere from five to seven days a week. Sometimes half-day programs are available.
Day treatment will usually include a combination of treatment modalities, medication management and treatment for co-occurring psychiatric disorders.
Intensive Outpatient Programs
One very common option people participate in is called an intensive outpatient program. During an intensive outpatient program, participants receive clinical treatment based on an individualized plan. The underlying causes of addiction such as trauma or mental health disorders can also be treated effectively during an IOP.
Patients participating in intensive outpatient programs will typically live at home during this time, but they might also live in a sober living facility.
Aftercare and Continuing Care
There are a variety of continuing care groups that people participate in, usually after they’ve completed more intensive addiction treatment. This is a way for people to continue to have a supportive environment, and also talk about the things they’re experiencing in their recovery.
For someone struggling with alcoholism, an outpatient rehab program can be a good fit, especially if their addiction is shorter-term or milder.
Even if someone doesn’t feel that they have a full-blown alcohol addiction, but they feel they are abusing it, an outpatient program can be a good option.
Some features of an alcohol outpatient program can include:
- A supportive, safe environment
- A combination of group therapy and individual therapy
- The option to participate as part of a transition from a higher level of care
Drug addiction and also overdose deaths have been issues that are growing in prevalence and severity in the U.S. Fortunately, help is available. Outpatient drug rehab at The Freedom Center might include:

- Options to receive treatment at different times of day to fit the participant’s schedule
