Outpatient Meth Rehab Center in New Jersey

People may opt for outpatient meth rehab for many different reasons. First, outpatient addiction treatment is often more affordable than inpatient rehab. Additionally, many people prefer to live off-site when receiving addiction treatment, whether that means living at home or in supportive housing*. Still, these are just some of the advantages of getting treatment on an outpatient basis. So, what are the benefits of outpatient rehab, and is it right for you?


One may choose an outpatient rehab center in New Jersey for the following reasons:


  • It offers more freedom, trust, and flexibility compared to inpatient treatment. 
  • It lets you address challenges that arise throughout recovery in daily life in real-time with the help of treatment staff.
  • It allows you to build a support system, develop new skills, and build self-care practices informed by your daily life experiences.


Some go to an outpatient treatment center to help them transition back into everyday life after inpatient treatment. Others choose an outpatient meth rehab center in New Jersey as their first step in recovery. There are different levels of outpatient care, one of which may be more or less suitable for you, depending on your needs.

What We Do

Levels of Care

Prevail Recovery Center offers the following levels of care or types of outpatient addiction treatment. Each level of care provided at our outpatient meth addiction treatment center in New Jersey requires a different time commitment and has unique characteristics. If you need help determining which level of care is right for you at this time, our admissions staff can help you decide. 




ification or “detox” is designed to help people get off of drugs and alcohol safely with the support of trained medical professionals. can be highly advantageous as a first step in treatment since it can be hard to stop using meth and other drugs on your own. The outpatient detox program at our meth addiction treatment center in New Jersey helps clients get sober while living off-site and can entail several treatments, most often including regular therapy, monitoring, and medication management. Many people with meth addiction find that outpatient detox works well for them. However, if you require inpatient detox, we can give you a referral to a treatment center that offers inpatient care. 


Partial hospitalization


Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) offer the highest level of care you can get for substance use disorders and other mental health concerns without being in an inpatient program. On a typical day in PHP, you will spend the majority of your days at your treatment center but will return home at night to sleep. Since PHP allows you to immerse yourself in recovery and get the optimal amount of support, most clients either start with this level of care or pursue it after detox. The time commitment required in PHP is much like that of a full-time job, so clients should expect to take time off work while in PHP if they’re currently employed. Our partial hospitalization programs include a combination of multiple treatments and activities, including but not limited to regular groups and individual therapy. 


Intensive outpatient 


Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) are less intensive and time-consuming than PHP. Much like those in PHP, our IOP clients engage in a combination of group and individual therapy. The difference is that the amount of therapy required for IOP means that you’ll be in treatment for fewer hours per week. IOP can be ideal for those who need a comprehensive addiction treatment team but can’t pursue PHP due to existing commitments. For example, those who need to work, attend school, or care for their family during treatment. One may also choose to attend IOP after completing a higher level of care, like PHP, as a way to transition back into their daily life.




Our other outpatient options require a low time commitment and are typically used by those who have completed a higher level of care with us already. Many clients choose to enter continued outpatient care after PHP or IOP so they can continue to access therapy and other treatments offered at Prevail Recovery Center, have regular check-ins with staff, and get support from their community as they transition back into daily life.
