Introduction to Outpatient Programs

Outpatient treatment can differ significantly from facility to facility. However, most outpatient treatment falls into two categories: intensive outpatient programs (IOP) or traditional outpatient counseling. Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) involve more intense therapy than traditional outpatient counseling. They are an excellent option for those who cannot attend treatment full-time in a partial hospitalization program (PHP).

While sometimes used as the first line of treatment for milder addiction, traditional outpatient counseling is much more effective following attendance of an IOP or PHP. That’s why our outpatient rehab in Nashville, TN does not begin with traditional outpatient counseling. We see outpatient counseling as an extension of our other programs. You likely did not become addicted to drugs overnight and you won’t get sober overnight either. Recovery is a process. By starting with a higher level of treatment and then decreasing as you move forward, you are setting yourself up for success. Here at our drug rehab in Tennessee, we will work with you to craft an individualized treatment plan that includes the right mix of treatment levels for you. 


What's the Difference Between
Inpatient & Outpatient?

It would be easy to say that the difference between inpatient and outpatient is where you sleep at night, but that would be oversimplifying. While inpatient treatment does require you to reside at the facility while you receive treatment, it also requires much more than that. Inpatient treatment requires that you move from your home and away from your loved ones while attending treatment. Depending on what you do professionally, you most likely won’t be able to work during this time either. While inpatient treatment can be the best option for some, others cannot remove themselves from their lives to attend treatment. Some also can’t simply afford the cost of travel to a remote location for treatment or the cost of inpatient treatment. Fortunately, the days of inpatient treatment being the only option have passed. Researchers have continued to explore the efficiency of different levels of addiction treatment, and we rely on this evidence based approach in our outpatient rehab in Nashville, TN. 

Our outpatient treatment levels allow you to attend rehab while remaining connected to your family and fulfilling your responsibilities. Perhaps your addiction took you away from your family or stopped you from actively participating in their lives. By attending an outpatient treatment program, you can focus on treatment and rebuilding relationships simultaneously. As you work your way through treatment and establish some sobriety, your family will  begin to see the changes that you are making. At the same time, you will be learning valuable coping and communication skills that will help you to rebuild those relationships to be stronger than before. Addiction is a heartbreaking disease which leaves us with a lot of rebuilding to be done. Outpatient counseling allows you to continue to have support while you’re rebuilding. Repairing relationships takes time and we’re here to support you throughout. 

Partial Hospitalization

is a full-time commitment for a reason. This program is for individuals who need significant structure in the journey toward recovery. Our Partial Hospitalization Program offers a stable schedule for you to focus on your recovery and to get the help you need.

Intensive Outpatient

offers therapeutic support with fewer restrictions than our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). IOP enables you to continue your recovery therapies on a part-time, intensive schedule designed to accommodate your work, school and family life.

Outpatient Program

provides our clients sustained support once they have completed either our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) including weekly one-on-one & group sessions.


Why Is an Outpatient Rehab in Nashville Necessary to Recovery?

Outpatient treatment following our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHO) or Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) in Nashville is the best to increase your chances of staying sober in the long run. Getting sober is one thing and staying sober requires a different skill set. By participating in our Outpatient program, you’re making a commitment to yourself and your sobriety. Outpatient can be thought of like physical therapy following surgery. When someone has a knee replacement they have to attend physical therapy to learn how to build strength in that new knee and the surrounding muscles. Outpatient counseling is just like that. 

Whether you have completed our PHP in Tennessee or our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), you are building a new life with new skills that haven’t become second nature just yet. Continuing your treatment by participating in our Outpatient program allows you to learn more about how to apply the new skills of sobriety and how to face situations you may not have considered. Remember that you’ve decided to stop using the escape hatch of addiction, but at this point you’re still learning how that works. 

Many movies about drug addiction oversimplify recovery. It would be nice if the day you decided to get sober, you immediately acquired a sober superhero cape and intuitively knew what to do. However, that ‘s not the reality of sobriety. Many of us spend years holed up in our active addiction, numbing all of our emotions and isolating from the rest of the world. Reentry into the world can be challenging but it’s extremely attainable. Your commitment to your recovery is crucial and so is a support network. Many find that those “friends” we used to use drugs and alcohol with are not really our friends when we decide to get sober. This realization and loss can make early recovery feel very lonely.  Attendance at outpatient therapy and peer support recovery groups can help greatly reduce that feeling. But it’s not just about finding friends when you get sober, it’s about building a network of others who have a similar goal of staying sober. So many of us face similar situations in our sobriety and there are no words to describe how powerful it is to share recovery with another person.  

Addiction causes us to have one focus. When we are in an active addiction, we are either using, figuring out how to get more, or trying to hide the fact that we’re using. Building a path to recovery can seem overwhelming because now the focus has changed and expanded. You suddenly feel like you’re trying to get your body in shape, rebuild relationships, get a job, get your finances in order, and clear the wreckage from your using days. The good news is that you cannot and should not try to do all of that at once. Recovery is a slow process that is built one day or even one moment at a time. Each choice that you make is a choice for or against your sobriety and you will likely not always make the best choices. Recovery is about progress, not perfection. Progress is perfection and one way to continue your progress is to participate in outpatient drug treatment. Our outpatient rehab in Nashville, TN is built on the knowledge that recovery is a process and we’re here to keep supporting you as you find your way.
