These benefits include:
- Time flexibility

Types of Rehab Programs
Outpatient addiction rehabilitation can come in many forms. This is because people have busy daily lives and need options to choose from.
While the responsibility of work and family is a priority, so is self-care and recovery. Let’s take a look at the different outpatient treatment options at the Freedom Center.
Intensive Outpatient Program
The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) helps addicts a few days a week for 2-3 hours. These hours are spent doing a variety of things and are flexible to the patient’s busy lifestyle.
There are different group sessions offered at the Freedom Center that allow patients to learn about drug and alcohol addiction and avoid relapse. Some of these programs include:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Exercise and Nutrition
- Holistic Treatments
- Vocational and Life Skills
- Psychiatric and medical support.

The Freedom Center assists patients in finding a place to continue sober living with other addicts. If this is possible for someone with a busy lifestyle, it is highly recommended.
The aftercare program at The Freedom Center provides therapeutic and educational programs for patients who have busy days.
This is a very flexible level of care, the hours vary depending on what the patient can do during the week. Usually, a patient is required to come into the rehab facility daily.
It is important not to deny the level of care that you may need. If you feel that your addiction is very strong, it might be better to try inpatient treatment first.
Alcohol Rehab and A.A. Fellowship
Outpatient alcohol rehab uses the Alcoholics Anonymous 12 step program. Founded in 1935, the program has become widely used and has over 2,000 members.
The 12 steps are goals that each alcoholic works to meet during their lives. Alcoholics Anonymous holds meetings where community members support each other through recovery. These meetings are not just for alcoholics, recovered alcoholics are welcome as well.
Drug Rehab With a N.A. Foundation
Alcoholics Anonymous inspired the foundation of Narcotics Anonymous, which works with patients who have a drug addiction. Narcotics are considered to be any mind altering substance-illicit or prescription.
Narcotics anonymous also uses the 12 steps, which can be applied in a spiritual way, to help drug addicts. There are meetings for both current and past drug addicts.
Both AA and NA are encouraged through the life span, as recovered addicts can give inspiring and helpful advice to others.
