Outpatient Mental Health Offers a Path to Recovery

In the United States, the chances of you or a loved one being impacted by addiction is high. Fortunately, the services provided by outpatient mental health clinics are vastly improving the lives of those who suffer from addiction. These methods of intervention and prevention are providing the life-changing care and support needed to combat the debilitating effects that addiction has on the populous. Whether the treatment is intensive outpatient therapy, or partial hospitalization, the range of therapeutic care has played a major role in both the reduction and the determent of long-term addiction. Many who have decided to enter into an IOP program have successfully altered the course of their addiction and effectively combatted the debilitating effects of addiction.

Addiction is indeed debilitating. Ask any therapist serving in an outpatient mental health clinic and they can testify that addiction can affect anyone regardless of gender, age, or socio-economic status. It is estimated that over 15 million adults suffer from some form of risk to addiction. Whether it is alcohol, narcotics, self-mutilation or eating disorders, there is evidence to support that modern society is facing an epidemic towards dependency of staggering proportions. As a result, the number of patients in outpatient programs is soaring.

It is not only the individual suffering from dependence that is impacted by addiction. While the numbers of those who struggle with drug and alcohol addiction is staggering, there are loved ones, family and friends, who are also directly impacted. Intervention services provided by a quality outpatient mental health clinic would give the support and treatment necessary to alleviate the suffering. Yet, many who suffer from addiction reject the idea of seeking outpatient treatment.

Our intensive outpatient therapy does not offer the option of moderate usage. The goal is total abstinence.

In addition to addressing the physical issues surrounding addiction, our outpatient treatment program addresses the emotional, spiritual and behavioral issues associated with chemical dependency. This requires an honest assessment of the mental health of the patient often administered in a group setting. outpatient mental health is of the utmost importance as this either aides or hinders the road to recovery.

Addressing outpatient mental health is the key for those battling chemical dependency. This is why one of the main forms of treatment in an intervention is for the patient to recognize and address the reality of their addiction. An intervention is often the first step on the road to recovery. It offers an opportunity for the addict to recognize their dependency as well provide an opportunity for family and friends to support their loved one in a truthful and constructive environment.

We understand that oftentimes a person who is receiving an intervention may be resistant due to denial. They also may be angry, feel betrayed and unwilling to accept treatment. Many of our therapists have been there and understand the sensitivity required when confronting someone who is struggling with chemical dependency. They will guide and support you and your loved ones as you engage with the addict during this very important step in the recovery process.

Enabling the addict is not an option. It will only prolong their affliction and cause greater pain and suffering for those involved.

An intervention is a pro-active step administered with a systematic approach that guides addicts to recognize their illness and offers family and friends the courage to be strong for their loved one.
