individual beginning an outpatient treatment programWe tend to think of rehabilitation and recovery as a reasonably straightforward process. Get the substance out of your system, and get on with your life. In reality, detoxification and the initial inpatient treatment are only the first steps on the road to recovery. Although both are important parts of an individual’s rehabilitation, the outpatient addiction treatment program that follows these is essential. An outpatient addiction treatment program provides the same level of support as a more comprehensive inpatient program. However, because patients will be living at home, it allows for a crucial transition back into their regular life. Thus, if you have a friend, family member, or loved one who is struggling with addiction, an outpatient addiction treatment program may be the right fit for them. If you are interested in learning more about our Pennsylvania outpatient treatment program, it is worth your time to take a closer look at the Naaman Center, a subsidiary of Pennsylvania Adult and Teen Challenge.

What Is an Outpatient Addiction Treatment Program?

At The Naaman Center, we understand that not everyone with addiction issues is the same. Individuals who are at the point of having more manageable substance abuse problems are sometimes told that they have no problem at all. In reality, such people do still need help. In fact, of the more than 40 million Americans over the age of 12 that suffer from substance use disorders1, the vast majority would benefit from continued care. This is where our Pennsylvania outpatient treatment program comes in.  

Simply put, in an outpatient addiction treatment program, such as those offered at the Naaman Center, individuals receive specialized and individualized care just as if they were at an inpatient program. The only difference is that they participate in the program while living at home and working or going to school. Also, the fact that they will be using our services on their own time means gaining independence and growing in their recovery.

The Naaman Center has several locations to accommodate the needs of individuals struggling with addiction. With men’s and women’s treatment centers in Elizabethtown, Quarryville, Elizabethville, and two locations in Lancaster, the Naaman Center provides outpatient treatment programs with individualized treatment plans developed specifically for clients by our medical professionals and clinicians. Also, our programs are faith-based using the practical applications of Christian teachings to change deeply entrenched, self-destructive behaviors, and discover a new identity in Christ. 

What Are the Advantages of an Outpatient Addiction Treatment Program?

Enrolling in an outpatient addiction treatment program brings with it many advantages. Among these are:

  • Cost. When it comes down to it, programs like our outpatient treatment program in Lancaster, Elizabethtown, Quarryille, and Elizabethbille, PA, are simply less expensive. Because they lack a residential component, the cost is lower even though we offer the same range of services.
  • Being at the center allows individuals to develop an extensive network of support outside of the center. Developing this sort of support is a vital part of avoiding relapse.
  • Spending more time outside of the treatment center also means that patients will have more time and freedom to pursue their hobbies and interests. This is another vital part of a successful recovery.
  • Participating in an outpatient addiction treatment program will allow individuals to go to work or school, and to fulfill their family and social obligations. Due to the flexible hours, they can do all of these things while maintaining their privacy.

An outpatient addiction treatment program isn’t the best fit for everyone. But if you know someone in need of help battling addiction and who cannot commit to a residential program, our Pennsylvania outpatient treatment program might be the right fit.
