What is Outpatient Treatment?

Call us now 662-470-6169

DeSoto’s outpatient program allows you to start making healthy changes in your life while you live at home. Individuals in our outpatient program have access to the highest quality treatment. Instead of residing at the treatment center, you return home and still have enough time to actively work or continue schooling.

Outpatient programs work well for individuals that do not require continual monitoring. However, that does not mean the level of treatment is inferior to a residential program. The outpatient setting is more cost-efficient and involves less time spent at the treatment facility. Therefore, it is essential to understand the severity of your mental health or substance use disorder. While it does not lack in quality of treatment, outpatient treatment is less of a time commitment than a residential setting.

Outpatient vs Inpatient Rehab

Mental health and substance use treatment generally fall within two categories: inpatient or outpatient treatment. Each type of treatment has unique benefits, while the benefits mainly consider the individual needs of the client.

As mentioned, people in an inpatient program live at the facility. While living at the facility, clients have full support and monitoring at all hours of the day or night. Inpatient services work well for people with severe mental health or substance use issues.

As the individual progresses and becomes more independent, they may transition to an outpatient level of care. Contrarily, many people start their treatment at the outpatient level. The recovery journey is unique to each individual, and at DeSoto Wellness, we can help you find the best path for your specific needs.

What’s Involved in Outpatient Treatment at DeSoto Wellness Clinic?

Outpatient treatment includes a variety of programs. Clients in outpatient treatment regularly meet with healthcare professionals that specialize in mental health and addiction. Outpatient treatment includes the same programs as inpatient treatment; they are just less intensive.

If you enroll in our outpatient program, you can expect to participate in group therapy sessions, individual therapy sessions, family therapy, and more. Our outpatient treatment methods include:

  • Primary care check-ups
  • Physical and cognitive examinations
  • Therapy (cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy)
  • Psychiatry

Alcohol Treatment

Alcohol addiction is characterized by chronic and uncontrolled consumption. Alcoholism refers to emotional and physical dependence. Many individuals suffering from alcoholism are unable to stop drinking despite understanding the physical, mental, and emotional consequences. Alcohol use disorder often requires treatment which involves behavioral therapy and even medication. Clients that require medication will be referred to CARE Clinic.

Benzodiazepines Treatment

Benzodiazepines are one of the most frequently prescribed medications. They are commonly prescribed for neurological, psychiatric, or medical disorders. Benzos are effective in treating many health issues. However, they are highly addictive. Benzodiazepine abuse can be extremely dangerous due to its side effects and withdrawal symptoms.

Opioid Treatment

Opioids are typically prescribed to help treat pain. Prolonged opioid use can cause physical dependence and addiction. Opioid addiction can happen to anyone. Opioids are not only highly addictive, but their withdrawal symptoms can make it challenging for individuals to stop taking the drug. Opioid addiction is characterized by uncontrollable cravings and an inability to stop using the substance despite the consequences.

Heroin Treatment

Heroin is an opioid substance made from morphine. In many cases, heroin use begins after an inability to obtain prescription opioid medication. Heroin navigates to the brain and binds to opioid receptors, causing an addictive high. Both short-term and long-term effects of heroin can be dangerous and even deadly. Heroin use requires intensive treatment and therapy due to its dangerous and highly addictive characteristics.

Tobacco Treatment

Dependence on any substance can be physically and psychologically dangerous. Nicotine is believed to be as addictive as cocaine or heroin. Consequently, tobacco is one of the most commonly abused substances in the world. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 6 million deaths stem from tobacco use per year. Therapeutic treatments, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, have proven to be a successful treatment method for nicotine addiction.

How Long is Outpatient Rehab?

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the duration of treatment should depend on a case by case basis. Outpatient rehab centers offer between three months to a year of treatment for the average client. However, the duration of treatment primarily depends on the person’s needs.

At DeSoto Wellness, we monitor the effectiveness of treatment for each individual. We are more than capable of dynamically adjusting the style of care to give our clients the best possible opportunity to make a healthy recovery.
