Being able to sleep in your own home while you complete an addiction treatment program can have many benefits. The truth is that everyone has a different work and life balance. Many people have work and family responsibilities that prevent them from enrolling in 24/7 residential inpatient care. Outpatient care can be an excellent option for those who can only seek treatment during the day while still balancing these responsibilities and those who have already completed an inpatient program and need continued support as they transition back to everyday life.
With an intensive outpatient program (IOP) like the one offered at Solution Based Treatment, you can continue to live at home during the treatment and recovery. Getting the treatment, you need doesn’t mean you have to give up control of your own life. Our treatment team is your support system as you go through this journey, helping you get the help you need while being an active participant in your job, your family, and your relationships.

Benefits of Outpatient Care
An IOP is commonly suggested for those who do not need detox or the round-the-clock care of a residential treatment facility. Also, IOPs can include medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to help manage withdrawal symptoms at home. An IOP can also be the next step after going through a medically supervised detox. The flexible treatment options of an IOP allow people to either receive treatment for the first time aligned with their schedule or continue with therapy on a part-time but consistent and structured basis. It’s important to have structure as an outpatient so clients can avoid relapse and have the best chance at recovery.
The benefits of outpatient care include:
- Convenience and routine – Being able to sleep in your own bed at night, be home to cook your family dinner, and continue to work at your job allows your life to be less disrupted. Many find that being away from home in a residential program can create added stress and anxiety that can get in the way of treatment and recovery.
- Affordability – Because an IOP does not include a residential stay with 24/7 monitored care, it costs less than residential treatment programs. Outside of that, inpatient and outpatient care offer the same research-backed, expert-led treatment and care.
- Support – Because you will be around family, friends, and co-workers in your everyday life, outpatient treatment naturally creates a more extensive network to support recovery, as compared to residential treatment. It also allows the opportunity to pursue interests outside of a treatment facility, creating opportunities to connect with a more diverse group of people.
Outpatient Rehab at SBT
At Solution Based Treatment, we offer an IOP designed to accommodate our clients’ personal and professional lives while delivering the best treatment and support possible. An IOP provides drug and alcohol treatment that is scheduled around a client’s everyday life and responsibilities. Getting people the treatment they need is the goal. Having a flexible option like an IOP removes the hurdles that may keep someone from getting treatment. Receiving treatment while continuing to live at home puts a more significant part of both the responsibility and accountability on the client, as well as the professionals providing the treatment. Clients are still monitored and are required to check in regularly as part of their counseling as well as to receive any necessary medication.
