The Advantages of a Professional Addiction Rehabilitation
There are different levels of care when it comes to addiction recovery. Inpatient therapy is more structured and costly. Outpatient therapy is not a residential treatment option, although it can be equally as effective.
Advantages of going to outpatient addiction rehab include:
- More flexible cost
- Less of a time commitment
- New and supportive friends
- A safe place to get help

Types of Rehabs
The Freedom Center has different treatment programs that help patients who are busy and need more flexible therapy options.
Busy work schedules and families take priority, but health and wellness do too. That is why there are options to choose from that adapt to daily living.
Drug and Alcohol Detox
When a person has been using drugs or alcohol excessively, it’s sometimes necessary to go through a medically supervised detoxification period. It can be dangerous to get substances out of your system, especially opioids and alcohol. Medical supervision helps ensure a safe recovery.
Inpatient / Residential
Learning to live life without drugs or alcohol can be a complicated matter. An inpatient or residential treatment center fully engulfs the addict into a sober program with many different treatment therapies.
Intensive Outpatient Program
Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) consists of three days a week of therapy and addiction education. Each visit to the rehab facility lasts for 2-4 hours.
Here are some treatment options offered at The Freedom Center IOP:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Psychiatric & Medical Support
- Exercise & Nutrition
More treatment programs can be found on our here.
We like to make sure that patients feel comfortable with sober living even if they’re out of residential treatment. We have sober living arrangements or “halfway houses” that provide close by lodging to patients that want to live with sober roommates.
Part of the IOP is that a commitment to the sober lifestyle should be maintained when patients are not at the treatment center as well.
The Aftercare Program
Aftercare is a program made to accommodate the needs of very busy people who also want to get help for addiction. It is daily and usually runs in the evening so people can come after work.
Aftercare provides the same kind of treatment programs as the IOP, but they are condensed into shorter and more frequent sessions. This allows patients to come and go, focus on sober living and still maintain their busy lifestyle.
When it comes to alcohol addiction, the most commonly used treatment program that we use is Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). AA focuses on setting small goals and attending meetings to talk about progress in making these goals.
The 12 Step Program is used to guide alcoholics through their small goals. Past alcoholics help current alcoholics follow the 12 steps and guide them through hardships. These mentors are called sponsors.
Aside from talking about goal achievement, AA meetings also provide a safe space for people to go to and ask for help during recovery. Each day can be a struggle early on when you’re just learning to live sober. It’s amazing to have daily support if you need it.
After the success of Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous was founded about 20 years later for past and recovering drug addicts. The same meeting structure is followed, allowing drug addicts to have a safe place to vent and make new goals.
Whereas alcohol is legally available, narcotics can sometimes be involved with crime. The anonymity of NA is important as people share their stories and reflect on their choices. It is meant to be a judgment-free zone, especially since the 12 steps people to look inward rather than outward.
