Outpatient drug rehab is often the first step of the recovery journey for an individual who is suffering from a mild to moderate substance use disorder. You get targeted, regular care from a team that specializes in addiction recovery.
Additionally, you become part of a community support group that encourages personal responsibility and helps you be accountable to other people as well as yourself. During outpatient drug rehab, you spend one or two hours each week attending one-on-one counseling, group therapy, and behavioral therapy.
When you take part in a medication-assisted treatment program, you take medication to ease withdrawal symptoms and help prevent relapse during the acute stages of recovery. If you’ve been through detox for a severe alcohol use disorder or an opiate use disorder, we can continue your course of Vivitrol and offer the necessary complementary therapy.
What Is Vivitrol?
Vivitrol is a brand name for naltrexone, which is an opiate antagonist. It’s an extended-release version, which means you only need to administer it once a month. We use it to treat opiate and alcohol dependence during the initial drug recovery process. We are not a detox center, but you can continue your treatment with us if you’ve just been through a detoxification program.
