Outpatient Program

When addiction strikes, it doesn’t discriminate, affecting people from all walks of life. Due to this, the needs of those struggling with substance use are complex and varied, but a lack of diverse treatment options prevents many people from seeking help they need. Not everyone can put their careers or families on hold to enter a residential program, while others simply don’t need such highly intensive treatment. Placing these individuals in the wrong level of care can be counterproductive to their recovery and keep them from achieving lasting sobriety.

At Strive, we know there is no such thing as a “one-size-fits-all” approach when it comes to recovery. As cookie-cutter programs become a thing of the past, we’re changing the way most view addiction treatment by providing high-quality, evidence-based care at the outpatient level. Our services are ideal for those looking for an alternative to residential treatment. Strive’s comprehensive outpatient program focuses on issues related to drug or alcohol abuse and the fallout it causes. Whether your situation prevents you from entering residential treatment or you simply want something different, Strive offers a flexible approach designed to meet your dynamic needs.

What is Outpatient Treatment?

Outpatient treatment is a level of care in which clients continue to live at home while in recovery, able to attend counseling, meetings and other therapeutic activities on a flexible schedule. At Strive, our outpatient programs provide many of the same benefits and treatment options available in residential care but are more adaptable to accommodate the diverse needs of each individual, allowing clients to work toward sobriety with minimal disruption to their daily lives. As an affordable alternative to traditional treatment, outpatient care also enables clients to explore their substance abuse-related issues in depth without the inconvenience or cost of inpatient rehab. Our goal is to increase access to effective, high-quality addiction treatment that makes recovery possible for people from all walks of life and lets individuals heal in a way that works best for them.

Who is a Good Candidate for Outpatient Treatment?

The flexibility of outpatient treatment makes it ideal for individuals with varied needs, but it is usually recommended for clients that don’t meet the diagnostic criteria for residential care or don’t need ongoing support after completing a more intensive program. No matter what stage of recovery you’re in, Strive’s outpatient program utilizes a comprehensive yet flexible approach that makes it effective as both primary and ongoing treatment. It may also be appropriate for those who:

  • Have already completed detox and don’t require 24/7 monitoring
  • Require a more flexible program that meets their needs
  • Can’t participate in residential treatment due to prior commitments or responsibilities
  • Need structured support as they transition back to independent living
  • Want to safely practice their new recovery skills after rehab
  • Have experienced a relapse and want to regain a foothold in recovery

At Strive, our experienced recovery professionals will work closely with you and your family to determine if outpatient is the right level of care for you. We know that each client’s path to recovery is different and we evaluate your substance abuse history, treatment goals, support network and more to give you the best possible chance at achieving long-term sobriety. Since those in outpatient care return home each day, a supportive family and recovery-oriented living environment are highly recommended to help eliminate triggers, cravings and other influences that could derail your progress. 

Outpatient Treatment at Strive

Outpatient services at Strive focus on helping individuals struggling with substance use develop the skills they need to achieve lasting recovery. Programming is offered three to five days a week with flexible treatment hours to accommodate busy schedules. Our trauma-informed clinical programs are highly individualized and clients participate in a variety of evidence-based treatments that vary depending on their goals and needs. Some of the techniques we use to promote lasting sobriety include:

  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Career and vocational counseling
  • Relapse prevention
  • Coping skills
  • Life skills training

By offering an array of comprehensive services in an outpatient setting, clients not only develop the skills they need to achieve lasting sobriety but also have the opportunity to apply them in real-world situations. These experiences are intended to teach you what works and what doesn’t, and to develop improved strategies for handling difficult situations. Our clients will also be supported as they address any issues that arise throughout the treatment process, including the challenges of early recovery and transitioning back to independent living. We know that there is no “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to addiction treatment and our goal is to provide an optimal therapeutic experience that empowers clients to heal in their own way, achieving lasting sobriety and the ability to maintain it in the real-world.

What Happens After Outpatient Treatment?

At Strive, you’ll dig deep into your addiction to confront the self-defeating behaviors that have held you back and develop the coping skills you need to stay sober. For many people, this is the real challenge of recovery — learning how to navigate life without drugs or alcohol and successfully manage triggers and cravings on a daily basis.

To help clients continue moving forward in recovery, we offer a Relapse Prevention Program (RPP) and Ongoing Recovery Support (ORS) for those transitioning out of outpatient care. In our RPP, clients will refine their recovery skills and continue to incorporate them into their daily lives while working to overcome any obstacles they encounter. In our ORS, clients will analyze their recovery progress and identify any areas that need improvement, continuing to heal as they learn how to overcome the effects of trauma and self-sabotaging behaviors. These services are personalized depending on the needs of each individual, helping you address your specific concerns and establish a strong foundation for lasting recovery.
