Treatment Alternatives offers an outpatient program, in some respects it is similar to aftercare as a client lives at home, works or goes to school and attends group counseling and individual counseling once a week.

Outpatient treatment is usually reserved for those who have been abusing alcohol for a short period of time and are in relatively good health. It’s also important to note that outpatient therapy requires the addict to have at least one person willing to help support them throughout the detox process.

One factor to keep in mind when choosing outpatient detox is the level of your ability to monitor yourself when in an unsupervised environment. Outpatients have much more freedom than those who are under constant supervision. If you feel like temptation to use is a factor, you should forego seeking detox on an outpatient basis.
