Drug & Alcohol Rehabs Are Your Best Option to Fight Addiction
Outpatient addiction rehabilitation is a very effective treatment option for individuals in Gaithersburg, MD who suffer from addiction and substance abuse issues. This type of program is usually used by patients who have already gone through both inpatient treatment and day/night treatment.
Outpatient addiction rehab is less structured compared to the other levels of care. Some advantages of outpatient treatment are that it:
- Allows for more free time
- Eases patient out of rehab and into daily life
- Provides addiction education
- Maintains a supportive environment
A good candidate for an outpatient program is someone who is ready to take on daily life being clean and sober, but may not be ready to be without the support of a rehab center.

Types of Drug & Alcohol Rehab Facilities
There is a variety of ways that a patient can choose to go through outpatient treatment. All of them lead to becoming clean and sober.
Because there are many people who have jobs and families, outpatient therapy is more accommodating to the work-life balance.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
The Freedom Center PHP focuses on building a foundation for recovery for individuals that need a higher level of care than an IOP or OP program. Providing treatment programming 6 days per week and 6 hours each day allows clients to put a great deal of focus on their sobriety and developing tools for relapse prevention. This high level of outpatient rehab is ideal for individuals who have tried lower levels before and need additional therapeutic support.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
The Freedom Center IOP focuses on creating a sobriety friendly environment for patients. The center provides sober living homes for their patients – to foster a healthy community as each person goes through addiction treatment.
Each day, patients will come into the treatment center to learn about addiction and address their substance abuse problem. There are a variety of ways to do this. Treatment options offered by The Freedom Center IOP are:
- Individual and Group Therapy
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Process Groups
- Medical and Psychiatric Support
- Family Therapy
- Exercise and Nutrition
- Holistic Treatment
- Life Skills
- Legal Support and Case Management
- Peer Support
There are a plethora of supportive treatment methods in this IOP that make each patient’s experience both unique and effective.
Continuing/ After Care
After the completion of residential treatment and partial hospitalization, aftercare (or standard outpatient treatment) is offered to patients to continue with treatment. This program consists of weekly counseling and the teaching of relapse prevention skills.
This kind of care usually consists of group meetings. These meetings are a way to check in with a recovering addict, to see how everything is going in their daily life, being sober.
Alcohol Rehab & 12 Step Participation
Addiction specialists understand that alcohol is very accessible, as it is legal for those above the age of 21 to buy and drink alcohol. The Freedom Center emphasizes the need for continued treatment for recovering alcoholics, to make sure that substance abuse is not their go-to coping skill.
A large part of outpatient alcohol rehab is Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). This is a support group that was founded in 1935 by recovering alcoholics who wanted to create a safe space that is goal-oriented for recovering and past alcoholics.
Alcoholics Anonymous meetings use the 12 Step Method to create small goals for each alcoholic to follow. Following the steps means breaking the cycle of addiction and hopefully pass on this new view to others.
Drug Rehab & Narcotic Anonymous
Going to rehab for drug addiction is challenging but extremely enlightening. Outpatient care is a great way for drug addicts to learn about how they can stop their substance abuse.
There is a program similar to Alcoholics Anonymous called Narcotics Anonymous (NA). It was founded in 1953 by recovered drug addicts who became inspired by the success of AA.
NA uses the same ideals of the 12 Step Program to focus addicts on being goal-oriented. This care continues as an addict recovers, and the hope is that meetings become a safe space for anyone, even if their treatment is over.
