Who Are the Best Candidates for Outpatient Mental Health Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Addiction?
Outpatient programs and intensive outpatient programs (IOP) for treating mental health issues and mental illness aren’t for everyone. When addiction is severe, inpatient programs may be the best option. For patients who have been through either inpatient care or outpatient mental health treatment for drug and alcohol addiction in the past and are experiencing a relapse, outpatient counseling can be an excellent option. For those who continue to function relatively well in spite of their addiction and need to continue attending work or school or caring for their family at home, an outpatient treatment program can provide everything they need during the recovery process.
In some cases, patients who’ve successfully completed an inpatient addiction program may feel they require an additional level of care as they transition back into their regular life. In these cases, an outpatient treatment center, such as On Demand Counseling Services’ MAT program, can provide the tools they need to successfully take on the responsibilities of everyday life while still caring for their mental health and recovery.
On Demand Counseling provides effective outpatient mental health therapy to residents in Youngstown, Mineral Ridge, West Austintown, Canfield, Boardman, Poland, Struthers, Campbell, Girard, Lordstown, and across the great state of Ohio.
