There are various kinds of outpatient programs. Depending on your needs, one program or level of care might be a better fit for you at this time than another. Prevail Recovery Center offers the following levels of care. If you need help determining which program is right for you, our staff members can help you compare your options.
Discontinuing the use of substances can come with uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms, which can make it harder to stop using drugs and alcohol. The goal of a detoxification or detox program is to help you get sober safely and with less distress. We offer outpatient detoxification programs for clients who experience less severe withdrawal symptoms and do not require inpatient detox. In our outpatient detox programs, you’ll work closely with medical and mental health staff for therapy and, if applicable, medication management. Many people enter detox prior to another program. For example, before attending PHP.
If you are someone who requires tapering, we can guide you through the process properly. This is common and often necessary for those who use substances such as benzodiazepines that can cause dangerous symptoms like seizures if discontinued abruptly and all at once. Additionally, if you are someone who requires inpatient detox, we can help you get a referral.
Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) are the highest level of care you can get without being in an inpatient program. On a typical day in PHP at Prevail Recovery Center, you will spend most of the day at your treatment facility but return home at night to sleep. Since clients attend PHP for the majority of the day, most days of the week, the time commitment mirrors that of a full-time job. Accordingly, most people don’t work while they’re in PHP. Our partial hospitalization programs involve a combination of different therapies and treatments, including but not limited to regular groups and individual therapy sessions.
Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) are less intensive and time-consuming than PHP, but they still offer extensive support. Our IOP clients engage in a combination of group and individual therapy, just like those in PHP. The difference is that the amount of therapy required for IOP means that you’ll be in treatment for fewer hours each week. IOP can be ideal for those who need a comprehensive addiction treatment team but cannot commit to PHP. For example, those who are employed or enrolled in college while attending treatment.
Other outpatient options offered at Prevail Recovery Center are normally seen as a step-down form of care. This is because they require a less extensive time commitment than PHP or IOP. Many clients choose to enter some form of continued outpatient after PHP or IOP so they can keep pursuing therapy and other treatments, have regular check-ins with staff, and get support from their community as they experience or transition back into their daily lives.
