Our Outpatient Programs for Addiction

Deciding whether or not a residential or outpatient program for rehab is best suited to meet your needs is a big step. The specialists at Banyan rehab locations determine every patient’s treatment plan by conducting a clinical assessment. These assessments look into the patient’s history of addiction, mental illness, any additional medical history, and more. Our Anchorage treatment center in Alaska offers outpatient programs for addiction to support medically stable individuals who have undergone some level of care and require support as they transition to a sober lifestyle.

What Is Outpatient Rehab?

Outpatient treatment is a less intensive form of care than inpatient programs. Outpatient recovery programs fall into two categories: partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient. Each level is a step down from a residential treatment stay, or it might be the individual’s first form of care, depending on their assessment results.

Depending on the type of outpatient care the individual requires, individual and group therapy sessions may vary from 5 to 6 hours per session for 3 to 6 days a week. Our outpatient programs focus on relapse prevention, psychoeducation, and teaching recovery skills to help reduce relapse and promote long-term recovery.

Outpatient addiction treatment can be a helpful option for someone with a mild substance use disorder which requires a shorter duration of care, or it can be part of a long-term plan. Outpatient drug rehab can last anywhere from 3 to 6 months, depending on the severity of the person’s case.

Outpatient Addiction Treatment Center in Alaska

As one of very few addiction treatment centers in Alaska, our Banyan Alaska rehab offers outpatient programs, including Veterans’ substance abuse treatment, family therapy, and an alumni program, to support long-term recovery. We understand that the transition to a sober lifestyle after rehab can be difficult, especially if the individual began with an intensive residential program.

For this reason, our outpatient services prioritize the development of relapse prevention strategies, communication skills, and other real-life skills that clients can take with them once they complete treatment. Below is more on our outpatient treatment programs and how they support addiction recovery.

Veterans Addiction Treatment

Veterans often struggle with substance use disorders and mental illness because of the trauma they’ve experienced. Combat exposure, long-term separation from family, and exposure to substance abuse on base are some of the many challenges that veterans face during active duty. While various Banyan Treatment Center locations offer inpatient options for veterans, our Anchorage rehab offers outpatient services designed to help clients who have undergone medically assisted detox and residential care, adjust to a sober life.

Our veterans' services address disorders like:

  • Alcohol Addiction
  • Benzodiazepine Addiction
  • Cocaine Addiction
  • Heroin Addiction
  • Methamphetamine Addiction
  • Opioid/Opiate Addiction
  • Prescription Drug Addiction

Family Program

Our family program is a major component of our outpatient rehab. Having the support of one’s family and closest friends during recovery is crucial in rejecting relapse triggers, fighting through cravings, and remaining accountable. To accomplish this, our family support groups focus on addiction education, avoiding enabling behaviors, and avoiding codependency.

It’s common for family members to misunderstand how substance use disorders work or to not understand their severity at all. This can make recovery more difficult for all parties involved. To help loved ones understand the importance of their support and to ensure our clients have support, we educate family members on the challenges and intricacies of addiction.

Many of our clients also experience enabling and codependency, which are problems common in relationships impacted by drug and alcohol abuse. These behaviors can make recovery more difficult for the individual and further encourage harmful behaviors. Our family program also addresses these problems to reduce the likelihood of relapse.

Alumni Program

Our alumni program is meant to offer aftercare addiction support to each of our clients. Another major aspect of our outpatient treatment program, our aftercare services for graduates are meant to offer individual and peer support to ensure that clients have a community to lean on when they hit roadblocks. From 12-step meetings to recovery sponsors, our Alaska rehab offers a variety of after-treatment services to reduce the risk of relapse and help clients make the most of their sobriety.

Finding Outpatient Addiction Treatment Near Me
