Why It is Important to Continue Treatment After Rehab

Understanding Outpatient Treatment

It is no secret that addiction can have a devastating effect on both individuals and their loved ones. Substance use can ruin relationships, careers, and even lives.

When someone decides to get help and seek treatment for their addiction, it is a huge step in the right direction. However, treatment does not stop when the rehab program ends.

This blog post from our team at SOBA New Jersey explains why it is crucial to continue treatment after rehab to maintain sobriety and stay on track.

What is Outpatient Treatment?

This type of treatment is care provided on an outpatient basis, meaning the patient does not stay overnight at a facility. These programs offer more flexibility than inpatient programs and depend on each individual’s needs.

Outpatient treatment usually consists of weekly therapy sessions and may also include medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which uses medication to help manage withdrawal symptoms and cravings.

Who is a Good Candidate for Outpatient Recovery Treatment?

Patients who have completed an inpatient treatment program and are looking for a less intensive level of care may benefit from outpatient treatment.

This type of program is also an option for those who cannot take time off from work or school to attend an overnight program and those who have a strong support system at home.

Why is Outpatient Treatment After Rehab Important?

Continuing treatment after rehab is essential because it provides accountability and support during the early stages of recovery, which can be difficult.

Outpatient treatment can help people who are struggling to stay sober by providing structure and helping them to develop a solid support system. It can also provide a space to process any triggers or emotions that may arise and learn new coping skills.

If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, we urge you to seek help from a reputable treatment center. Outpatient care can be a large part of the recovery journey.
