Effective Outpatient Addiction Treatment
Often treatment for Addiction Issues is delayed or not even considered because people are unable to take time away from their job, school, or family to stay full time at an inpatient rehab. However, that is not the only solution.
Our First step Intensive outpatient program is a highly successful and adaptable programme that allows professionals and other people with time constraints to get expert help with their addiction or other co-occurring issues
A daily, intensive and non-residential rehabilitation programme designed for individuals who are suffering from addictive disorders, but financial stresses, legal issues, work obligations and family responsibilities make it impossible for them to take part in inpatient treatment.
Intensive Outpatient Programs
First step Intensive outpatient program is designed for those who need a structured setting to work in but do not require detox or 24-hour care offered by the Houghton House inpatient or residential programs. Our Outpatient Programs provide continuing support to detect and manage, problems issues and triggers allowing individuals to retain sobriety and sustain their recovery.
Our Outpatient Programs are considered level two addiction treatment a step-down from level three which is the residential treatment.
