Substance Abuse Rehabs Are the Right Choice for Your Loved One
Outpatient addiction rehabilitation is a flexible and effective way to recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. A study shows that the more outpatient therapy one goes to, the more likely they are to stay clean and sober.
The advantages of going to an outpatient facility include:
- Time flexibility: it’s not all day
- An understanding support system: friendly staff and other addicts
- Lower cost than inpatient treatment

Our Rehab Is Covered by Most Insurance Companies
The Freedom Center is very flexible with cost because we want to be able to help people without stress about expenses.
We accept many popular insurance plans, which sufficiently helps the recovery process when it comes to cost.
Types of Drug & Alcohol Treatment Centers
There are different kinds of outpatient rehab that meet at different times during the week to maintain the flexibility of the program. People with families and busy work schedules have the option to choose what time is best for them to go.
Intensive Outpatient Program
The Freedom Center offers an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) that varies in length. It requires patients to attend weekly meetings up to 3 times a week for a few hours.
Treatment options in our IOP depend on what the client needs. There are a variety of educational programs as well as therapeutic ones.
The Freedom Center helps patients find sober living homes as well. This serves the purpose of giving a stable and sober living situation to a patient as they go through recovery. This is commonly referred to as a “halfway house.”
The Aftercare Program
The Freedom Center aftercare program offers daily therapy and addiction education at the end of the day for people who are busy with daily living.
There is also the option to live off campus from the outpatient facility and stay in a halfway house with other addicts in recovery.
Alcohol Recovery With A.A.
Outpatient Alcohol Recovery at The Freedom Center follows the Alcoholics Anonymous program (AA).
AA originated in 1935 when a recovered alcoholic wanted to bring people together to support each other.
The program follows what is known as the 12 Step program. Each of the 12 steps is a small goal which brings an alcoholic closer to sobriety and mental awareness.
Past and current alcoholics go to meetings to talk about the 12 steps and their progress in addiction treatment. There are daily meetings multiple times a day in which members discuss their progress with the 12 steps.
If you can’t make one, there will be other meeting times during the day and evening.
Drug Recovery With the 12 Steps
After the foundation of Alcoholics Anonymous, a recovered drug addict decided to create a similar program for drug addiction called Narcotics Anonymous (NA).
A narcotic is any drug that alters your brain function. These can be prescription drugs or illicit drugs.
NA meetings are a safe space to discuss progress with the 12 Steps and relapse prevention. Past addicts can come to give advice and share stories.
