Our drug rehab center near Middlesex County offers every standard level of care used in outpatient addiction treatment. Here are our levels of care or programs and what each one entails. While it’s not required, it is not uncommon for clients to pursue more than one level of care at different points in their recovery journey. If you’re not sure which level of care is right for you at this time, our admissions staff can help you decide.
Getting off of drugs and alcohol can come with uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. In some cases, they may even be dangerous. Detoxification or “detox” programs are created to help clients get off of drugs and alcohol safely and with less discomfort. In our outpatient detox program, you’ll work with medical and mental health staff throughout the week. Outpatient detox is most suitable for those who have less severe withdrawal symptoms and most often entails a combination of therapy, monitoring, and medication management. If you’re on a substance that requires tapering, we can help you make a plan and move through the process. This is expected for substances that shouldn’t be discontinued abruptly, such as benzodiazepines.
Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) provide the most intensive care you can get without being in an inpatient treatment program. PHP clients at Prevail Recovery Center get a truly immersive treatment experience and attend care on-site daily or almost daily for the majority of the day. The time commitment required for PHP mirrors that of a full-time job, so those interested in this level of care should expect to take time off of work or school while in their program. PHP entails a combination of multiple treatments that a client’s personalized treatment plan calls for. These can include but aren’t limited to groups, family therapy, individual therapy sessions, and medication management.
Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) are less intensive and time-consuming than PHP but still provide well-rounded, comprehensive support. IOP clients at Prevail Recovery Center engage in a combination of group and individual therapy, much like clients in PHP. 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 cannot commit to PHP. For example, those who work, go to school, or care for their family during treatment.
Other outpatient options are almost always step-down forms of care. They require a much lower time commitment than PHP or IOP. Many clients choose to enter outpatient after finishing a higher level of care so they can continue 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 and live their new, sober daily lives.
