Addiction and mental health problems are as unique as the people who battle them. Treating mental health issues and substance abuse is complicated because what works for some may not work for others. In light of that, there are a variety of options for unique and individualized care. One of these options is outpatient rehab.
Outpatient treatment can be used immediately after inpatient treatment, or on its own. There are many benefits to this treatment, especially when you consider a luxury outpatient program.
What is Outpatient Treatment?
As the name suggests, outpatient rehab centers are designed to provide care and treatment to individuals outside of the rehab facility. If you’re struggling with addiction, this method of treatment may be used as the transition period between detox and full recovery. For some people, however, outpatient treatment is the only option. Outpatient treatment facilities have many connections in the community to help clients maintain their mental health or readjust to daily life without the use of drugs or alcohol.
If you or a loved one are seeking help for addiction or a mental health issue, please call us today: 866-349-1770.
Is Outpatient Treatment Right for You?
When considering rehab options, it’s important to choose a program that will take your specific needs and health requirements into account. One of the biggest reasons rehab fails for many people is the fact that the treatment program was not specifically designed for them. Without unique opportunities for personal breakthroughs, rehab is less likely to be successful. Outpatient rehab requires an increased level of commitment because individuals are held entirely accountable for their actions during treatment.
Compare mental health and addiction recovery to the education process: Some people learn best from books, while others need hands-on experience. There is no right or wrong way to learn; we are all different. In the same way, while some benefit from the constant attention and monitored lifestyle of inpatient treatment, others can keep up with treatment through outpatient rehab while retaining most of their regular daily routines.
Who is the Ideal Client for IOP Treatment?
Since treatment for addiction or mental health issues is unique to each individual, some people will benefit most from intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment, while others will do better with other programs.
Outpatient treatment may be best if an individual:
- Is unable to take time off from work or school to enter inpatient rehab, but still needs immediate help
- Needs to keep their treatment private
- Is able to control or self-regulate their exposure to substances
- Does not need 24/7 monitoring for self-harm
These are all good reasons to enter outpatient rehab. However, while some people can get help without disrupting their lives, it’s important to take a critical look at yourself before deciding what type of rehab is best. Contact us today to learn more about our treatment plans.
Our Florida Outpatient Program Can Provide Numerous Benefits
The number one benefit of outpatient rehab treatment is that, for the most part, you can continue with your routine. Outpatient care allows you to continue working or going to school. In most cases, you can live at home and get support from your family during treatment. You can retain most of your independence, with only a few hours set aside each week for treatment.
In addition, luxury outpatient treatment is often less expensive than inpatient treatment because you won’t be paying for room and board at the facility. And with regular meetings and a support system of therapists, mentors, and peers, outpatient services may be just as effective as inpatient services. Plus, outpatient treatment works more extensively to prepare you for life outside of rehab. By practicing self-care and sobriety in the real world, you will gain experience in handling triggers and removing yourself from harmful situations or environments.
What are the Challenges of an Intensive Outpatient Program?
This type of treatment is only beneficial for a specific type of person. Someone who needs the structure and forced abstention from his or her substance of choice may not benefit from this therapy. Clients with co-occurring conditions such as bipolar, schizophrenia, depression, anxiety or other eating or sexual disorders may also require the additional attention that is afforded to inpatient clients.
Outpatient treatment is not ideal for clients who have yet to detox, or who need help with detoxing. In these situations, an inpatient program with 24-hour medical care is preferred.
With outpatient treatment, much of the onus is placed on clients; things like drug testing or regular check-ins with a therapist are often required. Outpatient clients are held completely accountable for their actions. So a patient who is unable to cope with the pressure may not be the best candidate for outpatient treatment.
What is Aftercare?
When you enter inpatient rehab, your care team will create an extensive healing and recovery plan for you—all the way from potential drug and alcohol detox to reentry to society. Reentry is where aftercare comes in. Aftercare usually consists of individual therapy sessions, group therapy sessions, and other activities designed to help you develop coping mechanisms and avoid triggers in the real world.
Aftercare is a vital part of luxury outpatient treatment because it reinforces the themes and therapy of inpatient rehab, providing the tools you need to live a healthy and sober life beyond rehab.
How is Beachside’s IOP Program Different?
Beachside Rehab employs a holistic method to recovery. This means our treatments aim to heal the mind, body, and soul of our clients. Through private and group therapy sessions, we work to identify the unique physical, psychological, and spiritual factors at the root of addiction or mental health disorders. By working on these issues and promoting a positive and active lifestyle, we help clients continue practicing mindfulness and healthy habits throughout their lives.
Our beautiful West Palm Beach facility on the southeastern coast of Florida offers the perfect location to attend support sessions and group therapy in a private and relaxing atmosphere. Find out more today:
Many individuals seeking help with drug and alcohol addiction or mental health issues enjoy the benefits and advantages of an outpatient program. Whether you’re transitioning from an inpatient program or you’re looking for stand-alone outpatient treatment, our facilities are always available. In fact, outpatient clients are always invited to group sessions at our Hutchinson Island facility. Situated on the beautiful Atlantic Coast of Florida, our luxury outpatient rehab facility is calming and relaxing—the perfect place to start fresh and commit to clean and healthy living.
Our holistic method of treatment allows clients to identify and avoid triggers in their daily lives that could be detrimental to their mental health and sobriety. Like inpatient clients, outpatient clients are assigned their own private therapist who handles their care. Outpatient clients have the option to attend between 1 and 9 hours of group therapy each week.
Unlike inpatient therapy, which usually lasts between 30 and 90 days, outpatient therapy has no time limit. Clients are welcome to join group sessions for as long as they need to get results. By not placing a time limit on luxury outpatient treatment, we can support our clients and help them deal with any stressors of outpatient recovery.
Enjoy the Benefits of an Active Outpatient Lifestyle
Part of the holistic method of recovery involves learning to enjoy life to the fullest. This means engaging in healthy habits. People who are happy, healthy, and active are less likely to engage in risky behavior or rely on the use of substances to cope with difficult emotions or trauma. Both inpatient and outpatient Beachside Rehab clients enjoy a comprehensive list of activities and classes designed to promote health and well-being.
Some of our most popular activities include:
- Ocean Meditation
- Beach walks and runs
- Musical Lessons
- Horseback Riding
We also host community cookouts, giving all clients the opportunity to mingle and share their experiences in a social setting that’s friendly and relaxed.

The Role of Family in Luxury Outpatient Rehab Treatment
For individuals in outpatient treatment, family support is vital. In most cases, clients stay in contact with their family and may even live with them while in recovery. By offering family therapy sessions and support to provide families with the information and tools to make recovery easier for their loved one, we can improve these core relationships and further assist in the healing journey.
What about 12-Step Programs and Support Groups?
At Beachside Rehab, we advocate for the use of 12-step programs in addition to working with an outpatient rehab center. Twelve-step programs are proven to be successful, especially as an outpatient treatment and aftercare option. Some of the biggest benefits of 12-step programs include:
Give and Receive Support: In a group of peers with similar experiences, clients feel supported and understood. Since addiction and substance abuse often isolate individuals from their friends and families, the support of like-minded people can help clients feel accepted. It’s also comforting to know that others are going through a similar situation.
Experience No Judgment: One of the biggest benefits of these programs is the fact that there is no judgment. For many individuals, sharing personal thoughts and feelings can seem daunting, and the fear of being judged or ridiculed can be a major roadblock. Twelve-step programs advocate for complete acceptance, creating a safe space for individuals to share.
Create Lasting Friendships: The friends that are made in luxury outpatient treatment and 12-step programs become friends for life. Creating bonds with others and supporting peers outside of therapy sessions is a major key to preventing relapse.
Learn New Techniques: If you have a tough problem to solve, it’s helpful to get another perspective. When someone can see your problem from their own point of view, they can offer helpful tips and tricks to solve the problem more easily. It’s the same with support groups and 12-step programs. You may learn a new coping method from someone else in the group, or you may be able to offer your own advice on what works for you.
Reinforce Sobriety and Prevent Relapse: During recovery, there may be times when using substances again seems like a good idea. But in a 12-step group, you may see someone who has relapsed, reminding you of the consequences of using and helping you avoid that path.
Gain Confidence that Recovery Is Possible: Twelve-step programs are a great place to acknowledge success. Seeing your peers do well instills positive thinking and confidence that recovery is possible in your own life.
