When is an Outpatient Program (OP) Right for You?
An Outpatient Program isn’t meant for everyone. If someone is suffering from a severe form of addiction which has led them to chronic relapses or near-death experiences due to their substance abuse, they should go to a residential program. An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a great place for patients to transition to after being in a residential facility, but it’s also good for those who are ready to get sober and not resistant to the idea. Those who go to an OP are often in the early stages of addiction and need minimal amounts of treatment and therapy. Outpatient is also the perfect form of treatment for anyone who has responsibilities like work or school that they have to deal with because you can live at home and also go to treatment a few times a week.
