Whether you are dealing with addiction issues for the first time, or you are continuing care after a residential program, outpatient addiction treatment is essential to ensuring long term recovery. For those who have never needed treatment before, outpatient treatment works as an early intervention before the addiction worsens to the point that it is causes irreparable damage.
For those who have recently completed inpatient detox or residential treatment, outpatient services provides a bridge to help the individual integrate back into their day-to-day lives.
The misconception many people have is that addiction can be corrected with only a short-term stay in an inpatient facility. In reality, substance use disorders are chronic illnesses that require long term care, often consisting of individual therapy, psychiatry, clinical programming, and peer support, in order to prevent relapse.
The most successful relapse prevention treatments are those that can be reliably sustained over a long period of time. In order for this to be possible, outpatient treatment must be cost- effective, time-efficient, and clinically rigorous. The addiction treatment program at The Lawrence Wellness Center was specifically designed with all of these needs in mind. Individual and group therapy are structured to accommodate most work and school schedules, so that program patients can receive treatment without missing work or family obligations. This helps clients engage in the treatment process longer, while also allowing them to practice the skills learned in treatment in their everyday lives.
The addiction treatment program at The Lawrence Wellness Center incorporates several different medical and therapeutic treatment modalities and every program is customized to fit the individual’s needs.
Treatment may include:
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Solution focused therapy
Intensive psychiatric care
