Outpatient Alcohol Rehab

Published by Raffa Bari | Last updated: 30th March 2022

You may have heard of inpatient rehab for treating alcohol addiction. But have you heard of outpatient treatment? If you have an alcohol addiction and want to stay living at home, this could be the ideal way to break your habit.


What Is Outpatient Alcohol Rehab?

If you have a long-standing or severe alcohol use disorder, you need inpatient treatment sooner rather than later. Outpatient alcohol rehab, such as the service we provide at Cassiobury Court, means receiving treatment outside a rehabilitation centre. This type of rehab suits those who have a mild addiction.

As usual, you sleep and stay at your home, visiting treatment centres and therapy venues as often as you need.

Flexibility is key to outpatient care. Under outpatient care, you can access treatment programmes in your own time. If you’re busy with work and family commitments, you can fit these around attending support groups and counselling sessions.

Cassiobury Court is a welcoming place to visit. We offer lots of options for outpatient alcohol and drug rehab, depending on the type of support you require:

  • Check in to our centre every day, stay all day, then return home
  • Visit us for a few hours each day to access our range of treatment programmes
  • Attend therapy sessions a few times a week
  • Or just have a weekly appointment with us

If you want to talk in more detail, contact us, and we’ll run through your options.


What Are The Steps Of Outpatient Alcohol Rehab?

Alcohol Detox

Firstly, you’ll need an alcohol detox to get rid of the alcohol from your body. You mustn’t detox by yourself as the withdrawal symptoms need to be monitored by a medical team.

Withdrawal can be dangerous if you do it unsupervised. Your body has become so used to the physical effects of alcohol, and to deprive it suddenly, without warning, could mean that you become seriously ill.

For an alcohol or drug detox, you’ll need to stay with us for a few days so we can monitor your physical and mental health. You’ll still be an outpatient, and you can return home after completing your detox.


Outpatient Therapy

Cassiobury Court offers a menu of treatment options to help you feel your best, look after your mental health and help you stay sober:

You’ll likely attend our centre for your appointments, but we can meet at a venue to suit you in some cases.


Support And Therapy Groups

Living a life free of substance abuse is easier if you have the support of others. Support groups offer a lifeline to many people recovering from alcohol abuse. Learning from former addicts-those on the same path-can help you stay sober. You’ll discover ways to cope, such as avoiding triggering situations. You hear inspiring stories from recovering addicts and often make new friends.

Outpatient alcohol rehab gives you the independence to do as you please, but it’s still a life-long challenge to stay sober. Support groups give you structure and purpose, and you can attend them as little or as often as you like.


Outpatient Family Therapy

The effects of alcohol addiction can be tough on families. Your family will have suffered alongside you during your addiction. Family members may have tried to help but felt powerless when their efforts didn’t work. Family therapy is designed to help heal divisions caused by addiction and find a positive pathway for all involved.

It’s important to have the support of your family as an outpatient, as they’ll be the ones motivating and encouraging you. Family therapy is an essential part of relapse prevention and one of the various techniques and aftercare systems you need to help you stay clean.


Holistic and Wellbeing Therapies

As part of the outpatient alcohol rehab programme, you can access treatments to soothe your body and soul as it heals from alcohol addiction.

We offer music and art therapy, acupuncture, sleep management techniques, mindfulness therapies such as meditation, reflexology and Reiki.


How Beneficial Is Outpatient Alcohol Rehab?

Outpatient alcohol rehab benefits people who have a mild or short-term alcohol addiction rather than a long-term or severe habit. It gives people the freedom to work and spend time with family rather than staying at a residential treatment centre.

One of the enormous benefits of outpatient alcohol rehab is that you can use a centre’s treatment facilities AND see friends and family, but only see them if they have your best interests. People sometimes return to old living patterns, visiting familiar social scenes and places conducive to alcohol addiction. It’s better if you have supportive family or friends to act as cheerleaders in your recovery journey.


Is Outpatient Alcohol Rehab The Best Place For Me?

Managing mental health issues such as anxiety and depression alongside alcohol addiction is tough.

If you can’t choose between inpatient and outpatient alcohol rehab, ask yourself, “Do I need support with my mental health ALONGSIDE an addiction?” If the answer is yes, you’ll need the structured support of inpatient rehab.
