Today, outpatient treatment is a leading option for addiction recovery. Rather than sleep at a clinic or rehab center, clients return home after treatment, giving them the time they need for school, family, and work alongside treatment. Unfortunately, daytime outpatient treatment may not be accessible to everyone. Luckily, today there are a rising number of evening IOP programs in New Hampshire to help.
If you or someone you love is looking for an intensive evening outpatient in New Hampshire, A Better State can help. Our holistic, trauma-informed programs provide clients and their families with evidence-based therapies for addiction, substance use, and mental health. Call us now at 781.412.1488 to find out how our evening outpatient treatment can help you recover and thrive.
What Is Outpatient Addiction Treatment?
While many people are familiar with residential or inpatient rehab, many don’t realize that outpatient programs provide similar support for early recovery. The U.S. government regulates outpatient treatment programs to ensure clients receive the same care and treatment across the country. The most rigorous treatment, called partial hospitalization, requires the most weekly clinic hours. Mid-level treatment is known as intensive outpatient treatment, while the most flexible plan, general outpatient treatment, provides the most flexibility.
While clients sleep and eat at home, outpatient treatment programs provide the same therapies and resources as residential treatment. These can include:
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Medication management
- Medically-assisted detox
- Family therapy
- Job training
- Life skills training
- Step-down treatment programs
- Alternative therapies
- 12-step programs
For many, outpatient treatment can provide structure while still living at home. They can also be more affordable and more accessible for families to work together in family therapy sessions.
What Is an Evening Outpatient Treatment Program?
Evening outpatient programs are just what they sound like: outpatient treatment that happens after regular work and school hours. These programs are generally IOP or general outpatient treatment because PHPs require too many hours for evening programs. IOPs are often the most popular because they balance rigorous treatment with free time, allowing clients to work, stay in school, and be involved with their home lives. An evening outpatient program may be right for you if:
- You have daytime work or school commitments
- You have a safe, sober home
- You’re looking to build a sober community close to home
- You’ve gone through residential treatment
- You’re interested in 12-step and alumni groups
- You have a supportive family or local support system
Evening outpatient programs are some of the most accessible options for addiction recovery. It’s important to remember that they may not be right for everyone at every stage of recovery. For those without safe living environments, high levels of independence, or the drive to stay sober, outpatient treatment is not the right choice.
