What Is Outpatient Addiction Treatment Like?

At WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab, clients who use our outpatient addiction services live at home or in a sober living home. They come into one of our treatment centers a specified number of hours per week in a customized program that has been created to best suit their needs. We offer:

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) 

This program is a day/night program that lasts for an average of 10 to 20 days, acting as a transitional program from inpatient detox or rehab into an intensive outpatient program. Clients come in for full days of treatment in the PHP, with around five hours of groups per day, several individual therapy sessions per week, and a weekly psychiatrist appointment. They will come in for five or six days a week and have access to all the amenities of a person in inpatient rehab. Patients will begin to take on life’s responsibilities like cooking, going to group therapy, etc., gradually so as not to become overwhelmed.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) 

This is a more flexible program that lasts for 30 to 90 days, with three sessions of 1-hour groups, three days/nights per week, along with daily check-ins with a life skills guide for a full 90 days, and one-on-one behavioral health and therapy appointments.

In all the outpatient drug and alcohol rehab programs at WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab, clients retain continuity of care through ongoing access to medical care, medications they have been prescribed, psychiatric care, and case-management services like life-skills development or help with writing a resume.
