Outpatient Treatment Program

The Pathway to a Nulife

woman talking to a therapist in an outpatient treatment programThe least intensive level of care offered in our centers is our outpatient treatment program. This level of care is designed for people who are able to live at home and participate in treatment on a part-time basis.

Typically, clients in our outpatient treatment program have completed a more intensive treatment program, such as inpatient treatment or an intensive outpatient program. This step-down approach allows clients to transition back into their everyday lives while still receiving the support and structure they need to maintain their recovery.

Addiction and mental health disorders can be difficult to overcome without treatment. If you’re struggling with your mental health or substance use, know that there is hope. Reach out to NuLife Behavioral Health today at 888.409.4775 to learn more about our outpatient treatment program and how we can help you on your journey to recovery.

What Is an Outpatient Treatment Program?

An outpatient treatment program is a type of treatment that allows people to live at home and participate in treatment on a part-time basis. This can serve as a bridge between inpatient treatment and everyday life. It is less intensive than inpatient treatment but more structured than traditional therapy.

It can be helpful to think of outpatient treatment as the time when you’ll be putting what you’ve learned in treatment into practice in your everyday life. With the support of your peers in recovery as well as your treatment team, you’ll be able to work on identifying triggers, learning how to manage stress, and developing healthy coping skills. Though you won’t be in a center 24/7, consistent support and accountability can make all the difference in your recovery.

What Does Outpatient Treatment Include?

We create personalized treatment plans for each of our clients in outpatient treatment. However, there are some common elements that are often included in outpatient treatment programs. These may include:
  • Individual therapy – You’ll meet with a therapist on a regular basis to work on your individual goals.
  • Group therapy – You’ll participate in group therapy sessions with other people in recovery. These sessions can provide support and accountability.
  • Family therapy – You may participate in family therapy sessions to help your loved ones understand your recovery journey and how they can best support you.
  • Wellness activities – We often incorporate wellness activities into treatment, such as yoga or meditation, to help you relax and de-stress.
  • TMS therapy – TMS therapy is a FDA-approved treatment for depression that uses magnetic pulses to stimulate the brain.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy – Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a type of therapy that can be used to help treat mood disorders.
As you progress in your recovery, you may find that you need less support. At that point, you can transition to a less intensive level of care, such as traditional therapy.

What Are the Benefits of Outpatient Treatment?

There are many benefits of outpatient treatment for mental health or addiction. These may include:
  • Flexibility – Outpatient treatment is flexible, which can be helpful for people who have jobs or family obligations.
  • Cost – Outpatient treatment is often less expensive than inpatient treatment.
  • Support – You’ll still have support from your treatment team and peers in recovery, even when you’re not in a treatment center.
  • Transition – Outpatient treatment can be a good transition between more intensive levels of care and everyday life.
If you’re struggling with your mental health or addiction, outpatient treatment may be a good option for you.
