The Difference Between Residential Inpatient Treatment and Intensive Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient substance abuse therapy offers the same type of therapy as residential addiction treatment. Clients in both of these groups must remain sober while participating in the required therapy and other recommended treatments.

Outpatient programs tend to be more open-ended than residential drug or alcohol treatment. The client lives at home and will usually attend therapy at least once a week in addition to group sessions.

Discovery Transitions Offers Outpatient Treatment for Alcoholism and Drug Addiction
Discovery Transitions offers outpatient treatment programs for men and women seeking either to initiate or to continue recovery from alcoholism and/or drug addiction. As a transition program, we are ideal for anyone who has just completed an in-patient program and is ready to step down to a less intensive but highly structured continuation of treatment. Discovery Transitions is equally effective and available for those whose substance abuse problems are severe enough to require help but do not rise to the level of requiring hospitalization and residential treatment.

People with addiction come to us with a variety of associated problems and underlying issues, but the common denominator is addiction itself. Therefore, Discovery Transitions maintains a core philosophy of addiction treatment, but tailors its program to fit each individual’s needs. Based on each prospective client’s substance abuse history and addiction type, our counselors will help determine specifically what treatment is needed.
