Outpatient drug rehab requires the client to attend treatment daily while they do not live at the facility during rehabilitation. The client is generally required to attend the facility for a pre-determined amount of time and days each week.
Outpatient drug rehab is not for everyone and is generally not the best choice for someone with a long history of addiction or who struggles with chronic relapse. Outpatient drug rehab programs are good options for someone who still works, has family commitments, and whose addiction has not entirely consumed every aspect of their life.
Intensive outpatient drug rehab is similar to a standard outpatient program, but the client dedicates more time to treatment. In addition, intensive outpatient programs are often used in conjunction with inpatient programs. A traditional outpatient drug rehab program may require the client to attend therapy for two to four hours daily, multiple days a week. An IOP program may require six to eight hours daily, multiple days a week.
An outpatient drug rehab program can generally last three to six weeks or months. It is not uncommon for some patients to attend outpatient drug rehab longer for aftercare support. Each program has a set length of time that is pre-determined for each client.
