Non Residential Substance Rehab information

Non Residential Drug Dependency Treatment


People whose drug addiction is not yet serious and are willing to get clean can greatly benefit from outpatient drug treatment. While in recovery, they are allowed the freedom to continue working and caring for the family.

Due to the withdrawal symptoms that are usually experienced during detoxification, residential drug treatment programs are highly recommended when dealing with addiction to substances such as heroin.

But a mild addiction to substance abuse, if detected at the initial stages can be treated in an outpatient rehab facility successfully.


Outpatient recovery is a perfect alternative for individuals who are persuaded to quit utilizing their substance of decision, yet require the adaptability of a program that will work around their timetables.


What Is Non Residential Rehabilitation

People trying to overcome addiction to drugs or alcohol through an outpatient treatment program can have sessions at the treatment facility several times every week.

The patients will be provided with medication and counselling and they will have scheduled appointments that they will have to keep but they will still be free to live at home and carry on with their other responsibilities.

Outpatient programs offer an array of services, come in a variety of formats and differing levels of intensity - but counselling, education and providing a network of support are generally the main focus.


An outpatient rehabilitation program is a good option for people with a strong drive to kick their drug habit and have the discipline needed to restrain themselves.

The Different Kinds Of Non Residential Rehab

The choice of drug or the intensity of the person's dependency and how far along they are in recovery are the basis of different types of non-residential treatment plans.

Below are the three classifications that are normally associated with outpatient rehab

  • 24 Hour Treatments
  • Day programmes provide a greater degree of care compared to the other outpatient programmes.
  • Clients are committed to meet 5-7 days per week at an outpatient facility for multiple hours each day in a day program.
  • Patients will participate in ongoing therapy, biofeedback, group counselling, and other adjunct therapies, such as art or music therapy during this time.
  • Patients can go back home after the meetings, either to their homes or a sober living centre.
  • A considerable time commitment is required during day programs, thereby limiting an individual's availability to work or go to school until the program is finished.
  • Intensive Outpatient Treatments (IOT)
  • Improvement in patients is measured using a well-established benchmark system in intensive outpatient treatment.
  • The time commitment required per week decreases as these milestones are met.
  • The IOP is a better choice for addicts committed to refraining from drugs and alcohol, but at the same time want to work and continue everyday duties.
  • An IOP may need several meetings for some hours every week to perform counselling sessions, group therapy, setback prevention education and turnout in a 12-step or similar support network.
  • Continuous Care
  • Ongoing support resources which help an individual solidify their commitment to sobriety are continuous care groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.
  • The groups are commonly encouraged by an authorized specialist and meet week by week.
  • Some groups have no restrictions in terms of who may attend while others will focus on people of a certain gender or age while others may consider the part of recovery being dealt with.
