Outpatient Rehab in Ohio

Outpatient rehab at The Recovery Village Columbus can help you or a loved one schedule your recovery around your work, school and life commitments. 

What Is Outpatient Rehab?

Outpatient drug and alcohol rehab involves scheduled visits with our addiction treatment providers, including therapists, social workers and doctors. You’ll visit the facility for treatment at hours that work with your schedule, then return home. Outpatient rehab is a lower-cost, flexible option, but clients are completely responsible for their sobriety while not in treatment.

Is outpatient rehab right for me?

If these apply to you, outpatient rehab could be a good fit for you.

  • I’ve completed inpatient care and want additional support
  • My diagnosis as mild substance use disorder 
  • I’ve got supportive loved ones and a safe, stable home
  • My work or family responsibilities cannot be put on hold

What to Expect In Our Outpatient Program

Outpatient rehab can help clients transition to their day-to-day life after inpatient treatment, or it can be the first level of care for people with milder addictions.

You’ll address the root of your addiction in one-on-one sessions with your counselor, build fellowship and support in group therapy, and receive high-quality medical care on your schedule so you can keep working, going to school or caring for your family.

About the Outpatient Treatment Process

After completing the initial treatment levels, those in recovery are the most vulnerable to relapse for the first 1–3 months outside of medical care. For this reason, outpatient rehab at The Recovery Village Columbus can last up to three months but is tailored to each patient’s unique needs.

Outpatient Rehab Emphasizes:

  • Mobility – You can maintain commitments to family and work, and meet any other personal obligations at your discretion.
  • Privacy – Due to infrequent travel, you will not likely have to disclose to employers, neighbors or friends that you are in treatment.
  • Self-monitoring – Being out and about during most of the day requires you to hold yourself accountable in avoiding familiar environmental triggers.
  • Collective support – You will be encouraged to pursue outside support such as 12-step groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous.

While attending outpatient rehab, many individuals remain immersed in their daily life and responsibilities, including keeping a job and tending to their family’s needs. This kind of care involves scheduled part-time therapy sessions at The Recovery Village Columbus. For those with a fairly mild drug or alcohol problem, weekly appointments may suffice, while those with more deeply rooted addictions may opt for daily therapy. Regardless of frequency and intensity of treatment, outpatient rehab does not require full-time facility residence.

FAQs About Outpatient Rehab

Who needs outpatient addiction treatment?

A good candidate for outpatient rehab is:

  • In good health
  • Living with a strong support system at home
  • Fully committed to a recovery plan

While effective, this kind of therapy isn’t for everyone. An inpatient or partial hospitalization program will be better suited for you if:

  • You suffer from a long-term or severe addiction.
  • You’ve been to rehab before but haven’t followed through with it.
  • Your home environment is unstable or not conducive to recovery.
  • You have a complex, co-occurring disorder along with your addiction.

How long is outpatient rehab?

How long outpatient rehab takes varies from person to person. However, most clients complete their outpatient rehab program in 1–3 months or up to a year. 

Is drug or alcohol detox included?

Medical detox is not provided in outpatient rehab. People who need medical detox can complete this program separately before starting inpatient or outpatient care. 

Does outpatient rehab work?

Yes, outpatient rehab has helped many people recover from addiction. Substance use disorders cannot be “cured”, but recovery is possible. Our patients’ physical and mental health, relationships with loved ones, safety, legal status, employment or educational status, and relapse time often improve significantly after their care with us.  

Is transportation provided for outpatient rehab?

No, finding transportation to get to and from outpatient rehab appointments is the patient’s responsibility. 

How can I pay for outpatient rehab?

Insurance may cover some or all of outpatient rehab costs. Copays and meeting deductibles may still be involved. The Recovery Village Columbus also help people without insurance develop an affordable payment plan.

Will I lose my job if I go to rehab? 

Several laws are in place to protect employees when they attend rehab. Outpatient rehab appointments can also be scheduled around work hours.
