Introduction to Outpatient Programs
Getting sober and staying sober are not the same thing. Recovery is a bit like learning how to drive a car. Once you know how to drive a car, you’re not as nervous as when you first started. However, you still have to pay close attention to the vehicle and the road, or you’ll find yourself in a ditch. Everyone is so proud when you get your drivers’ license, but there won’t be anyone congratulating you for driving well every day. Instead, you get maintenance done on your car, get your eyes checked, take a defensive driving course, and just drive. Sobriety is like driving. When you first start, you’ll need more help to get going. You might need a detox. After detox, you’ll attend an intensive outpatient program (IOP) or partial hospitalization program (PHP), and then it’s like having your learner’s permit. You can live sober, but you need extra support for those first several months. So, you attend a traditional outpatient counseling program. Outpatient counseling is an extension of treatment. You probably didn’t become addicted to drugs overnight and you won’t get sober overnight either. Recovery takes practice. You don’t walk out of treatment with recovery superpowers. You need recovery support because it’s a process. By starting with a higher level of treatment and then decreasing as you move forward, you set yourself up for recovery success. At Aspire Treatment Solutions, we work with you to craft an individualized treatment plan that includes the right mix of treatment levels for you. Our behavioral health outpatient center in Atlanta will help keep you out of the ditch and on the road to recovery.

What's the Difference Between Inpatient & Outpatient?
We all know that inpatient rehab requires that you move into the facility, but that’s just about where you lay your head at night. Inpatient treatment is often about geography. More specifically, it’s about where you are in relation to your loved ones, your home, your job, and your life. Inpatient treatment requires that you leave all of that. It may be the best option for some, but not for all. Whether you can’t leave your children or you can’t afford the cost of traveling to a remote location for treatment, inpatient treatment is no longer the only option. Different treatment levels play different roles in getting sober, and we rely on an evidence-based approach to create the best treatment plan for you at our Outpatient rehab in Atlanta, GA.
Varying Outpatient treatment modalities allow you to seek care at our drug rehab in Atlanta, GA, while remaining present for your loved ones and fulfilling your responsibilities. Perhaps your addiction took you away from your family or stopped you from actively participating in their lives. Outpatient treatment allows you to rebuild relationships and attend therapy. As you work your way through treatment and establish some sobriety, your loved ones will have front row seats to your progress. At the same time, you will be adding more tools to your sobriety toolkit. You’ll be learning valuable coping and communication skills that will help you rebuild those relationships to be stronger than before. Addiction is a heartbreaking disease, and we’re often left with fractured relationships to heal. Outpatient counseling allows you to have support while you’re repairing and rebuilding. It takes time and we’re here to support you throughout.

Why Is an Outpatient Drug Rehab in Atlanta, GA Necessary To Recovery?
Outpatient Counseling following our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHO) or Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is the best way to ensure long term sobriety. Getting and staying sober is a process. Staying sober requires a new set of skills and you’ll still be learning how to use those skills during outpatient treatment. By participating in our Outpatient Counseling, you’re committing to yourself and your sobriety. Outpatient counseling can be thought of much like physical therapy following an injury. When someone breaks their hand, they have to attend physical therapy to regain their strength. Outpatient counseling is similar. Whether you have completed our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), you are building a new life with new skills that haven’t become second nature just yet. Continuing your treatment in our Outpatient Counseling program allows you to learn more about applying these skills in different situations while you still have support. You can drive down the road, but you still have to keep up the maintenance on the car.
Numerous movies about drug addiction oversimplify recovery. Watch too many, and you’ll believe that twenty-eight days in inpatient rehab will undo twenty years of addiction without any work left to be done.
It would be nice if the day you decided to get sober, you intuitively knew what to do. However, that‘s not the reality of recovery. Reentry into the world after active addiction can be challenging but it’s also very doable. Your commitment to your recovery is vital, and so is a support network. You may find that those “friends” you used to hang out with are not your friends when you decide to get sober. This realization and loss can make early recovery feel very lonely. Active addiction is a lonely place but sometimes so is early recovery. Attendance at outpatient therapy and peer support recovery groups can significantly help reduce that feeling. But it’s not just about finding friends, it’s also about building a network of others who have a similar goal of staying sober. There are no words to describe how powerful it is to share recovery with another person.
Addiction creates an obsession. When you are in an active addiction, tiy are either using, figuring out how to get more, or trying to hide the fact that you’re using. Building a path to recovery can seem overwhelming because now the focus has changed and expanded. You can suddenly feel like you’re trying to fix everything all at once. The good news is that you cannot and should not try to do it all at once. Recovery is a slow process that is built one day or even one moment at a time. Each choice you make is a choice for or against your sobriety, and you will likely not always make the best choices. Recovery is about progress, not perfection. Our behavioral health outpatient center in Atlanta, is built on the knowledge that recovery is a process and we’re here to keep supporting you as you find your way.
