The Benefits of Professional Addiction Treatment

There are drug and alcohol treatment programs available near College Park, MD. These programs can offer varying levels of intensity, and different approaches to addiction treatment.

Regardless of the specifics of a College Park rehab program, there are some general advantages to these types of addiction treatment. Benefits of outpatient rehab include:

  • There is a high degree of flexibility that comes with participation in an outpatient rehab
  • Outpatient rehab allows participants to continue to going to school or work and meeting family and daily commitments

Types of Rehab


One of the factors that differentiate outpatient rehab programs is the intensity level. The following are some of the primary types of outpatient rehab.

Day Treatment

A day treatment program is the most intensive form of outpatient rehab. In many ways, a day treatment program is more similar to inpatient rehab than to traditional outpatient rehab, but participants don’t have to spend the night at the treatment center.

Day treatment requires a time commitment of most of the day, and it’s held most days of the week.

Intensive Outpatient Program

An intensive outpatient program is an option that can be beneficial for people at different places in their recovery journey. An intensive outpatient program begins with an assessment to determine an individualized treatment plan. A customized treatment plan should address a person’s substance abuse, but also any trauma or co-occurring mental health disorders that may be related to their addiction.

Intensive outpatient programs include clinical treatment such as group and therapy sessions, as well as medical and psychiatric care when needed. An intensive outpatient program might also include vocational and life skills, and peer support.

Continuing Care/Aftercare

A continuing care program is one that can come in many different forms. Participation in a support or recovery group such as Narcotics Anonymous (NA) or Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is one of the most popular types of continuing care, but others are available as well. For a lot of people, participation in a continuing care program is ongoing over the long-term.

Alcohol Rehab


Outpatient alcohol rehab serves as a way for participants not just to stop drinking, but receive the care and support they need to thrive in all areas of their life.

An outpatient alcohol rehab program could be a good fit for someone who:

  • Has a mild alcohol addiction
  • Isn’t simultaneously addicted to other substances outside of alcohol
  • Is unable to leave family or daily life commitments for treatment

Drug Rehab

An outpatient drug rehab program combines group and individual counseling and clinical care. It’s a good early intervention option for someone who hasn’t been addicted to drugs very long. Outpatient drug rehab may also work well for someone who:

  • Hasn’t previously tried other treatment options
  • Isn’t able to leave their home, or has a supportive home environment
  • Doesn’t require a medical detox
  • Has already completed inpatient rehab or a higher level of care
