Non Residential Rehabilitation

Addiction Treatment As An Outpatient


Individuals with a mild drug abuse problem and are dedicated to quitting will find non-residential rehab centres very helpful. While in recovery, they are allowed the freedom to continue working and caring for the family.

To help manage detoxification and withdrawal, a severe addiction to certain substances, such as heroin or oxycodone, is typically best treated in an inpatient residential program.

A non-residential medical program is best suited for those people with a mild addiction problem that has not yet taken root.


Those individuals who need a program that will cause minimal disruption to their lives and are dedicated to see it through will benefit the most from non-residential rehab.


What We Mean By Outpatient Rehab

The outpatient rehab routine gives drugs and alcohol treatment sessions that can be distributed throughout the week, at varying times.

This arrangement provides for patients to continue with normal duties and staying with their families, but are expected to report to the centres for counselling and medication at set times.

Outpatient treatment programs tend to emphasize counselling, awareness creation and providing support but there will be various differences in these programs regarding the services offered and the depth to which these services will be provided.


The individuals that benefit the most from non-residential programs are the ones who are motivated to quit and are dedicated and methodical in their approach to recovery.

The Different Kinds Of Non Residential Rehab

The substance abused or the individual's severity of addiction and stage of recovery are the things that different types of rehab are based on.

The following three categories are where the general types of outpatient rehab fall into:

  • Day Programmes
  • When it comes to providing patients with a high-level framework of treatment outside rehab, 24-hour non-residential plans are ideal.
  • For several hours each day and 5 to 7 days a week, patients agree to meet their doctors in a 24-hour non-residential plan.
  • Group counselling, psychiatric counselling, biofeedback and other forms of therapy are all part of the program that the patient will be required to stick to.
  • At the end of the meeting with rehab specialists, the patient may go back to a private or sober house.
  • 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 Programs (IOP)
  • The use of milestones to show progress is one of the defining characteristics of IOPs.
  • The amount of time the individual will need to spend at the treatment centre will reduce when milestones are achieved.
  • For those serious about abstaining from drugs and alcohol and still need to be able to work and perform daily responsibilities the IOP is a good option for them.
  • 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
  • Once a person has undergone the initial drug treatment, they can join support groups that encourage them to be sober such as Alcoholics Anonymous.
  • A licensed therapist typically facilitates the groups and meet weekly.
  • Some ongoing care networks may be gender-sensitive or age-sensitive and other may centre around a specific area of recovery.

Perks Of Non Residential Rehabilitation

Non-residential plans are more suitable for people who have a mild to moderate dependency. These sessions are more reachable and adjustable compared to the inpatient program.

A portion of the most compelling motivations to consider outpatient recovery include:

  • Affordability
  • You don't have to pay the costs of lodging at an inpatient facility because you're able to live at home during outpatient treatment - making it more affordable than inpatient.
  • Flexible
  • Usually, outpatient programs can work around your schedule.
  • This is useful for the individuals who feel like they can't leave their employment or family for a broadened timeframe.
  • Being with your family
  • During the outpatient program, family inclusion and support is encouraged as loved ones can help you more stay on the path to sobriety.

Choosing The Ideal Rehab For You

It's not easy to decide which rehabilitation program will best serve the needs of a particular user. It is more important to just move forward in the journey towards recovery; it does not matter if it is non-residential treatment plan or an adjunct treatment option.
