OUTPATIENT programs provide counseling and various levels of treatment for persons addicted to alcohol and other drugs. Typically programs meet on a weekly basis and help individuals remain sober while learning about the nature of addiction. However, some intensive outpatient or day treatment programs may meet several times a week for 3 or more hours per session. Most programs use 12-step recovery resources and tools.
Substance abuse counselors may be trained in a variety of therapeutic techniques used to address a wide range of issues, including depression, suicidal impulses, stress management, problems with self-esteem, issues associated with family, parenting, and marital or other relationship problems that are either associated with or underlie the addictive behavior. Typically, counseling sessions will include family members at some point in the therapeutic process to help them recognize behaviors and problems related to addiction.
These programs are designed to help develop abstinence skills and interrupt a pattern of addictive behavior. Usually, family members and/or significant others are included in some kind of family support program. Most programs use one- or two-hour group sessions organized around recovery topics that reinforce relapse prevention.
