Outpatient Rehab Overview

Whether you are transitioning from inpatient treatment or just beginning your journey, NuLife’s outpatient programs provide a clear path to long term recovery. Treatment is most effective when the level of care provided is a good fit for an individual’s needs.

For the majority of people struggling with drug addiction, finding the right medical detoxification and recovery program will be a choice between inpatient and outpatient treatment, or both. This choice can be difficult, and often times is the difference between success and failure. So we highly recommend consulting with one of our admission counselors to help you make the right decision.

Outpatient drug rehab treatment programs are substance abuse treatments where patients do not require 24 hour residential care. At this point, patients have gone through medical detox and completed the first and second phase of treatment at a residential facility.

At NuLife, our outpatient substance abuse treatment programs includes a large team of clinicians and therapists providing group therapy, case management, family therapy, and weekly individual therapy sessions. Typically people who select outpatient therapy will spend several hours a day at a treatment facility, but return to their home or a sober living environment that evening.

Outpatient Rehab Benefits

Outpatient care is often the last level of treatment and it is vital that people who struggle with drug and alcohol abuse have a strong foundation in recovery before entering into this phase. For people who are ready to transition to outpatient substance abuse treatment, the benefits include:


The same therapy, support and individualzed care, but in a part-time setting.

3 Levels of Care

Speak with our Admissions Advisors to determine what level of care is appropriate.

Who is Outpatient Drug Rehab For?

Outpatient care is usually the last step in a full continuum of care. This phase of treatment is geared towards people who have undergone inpatient residential treatment and medical detox for the following types of addictions:

  • Adderall addiction
  • Alcohol addiction
  • Benzodiazepine addiction
  • Cocaine addiction
  • Codeine addiction
  • Demerol addiction
  • Designer drug addiction
  • Heroin addiction
  • Inhalant addiction
  • Marijuana addiction
  • Meth addiction
  • Opioid addiction
  • Prescription drug addiction

Outpatient Drug Treatment Process

There are several options for treatment for outpatient substance abuse programs. At NuLife we offer the following:

  • Intensive Outpatient Drug Rehab Treatment
  • Partial Hospitalization Program
  • Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment Program

Each modality of care offers unique treatments catered to a patient struggling with drug addiction. Some of the services offered include group therapy, sober living housing (if needed), nutrition guidance, cognitive behavioral theory, and counseling with our team of physicians and therapists. Research has validated the effectiveness of several commonly used, evidenced-based therapy models; CBT, DBT, MI, and EMDR to name a few. But if they are not part of an organized treatment system purposely designed to facilitate long-term recovery, they can have little effect if any, on the addiction problem.

That’s why NuLife’s Clinical Team developed a three-phased approach to treatment with all the essential steps, strategic use of proven therapy models, and one ultimate purpose: LONG-TERM RECOVERY.

What to Expect at an Outpatient Treatment Center

Intensive Outpatient Treatment

The amount of supervision and structure of each outpatient program will vary for people who are at different levels of recovery from drug and alcohol abuse. Often, people who have just come out of inpatient residential treatment will transition into intensive outpatient drug treatment therapy where they will spend four hours a day, five days a week in treatment, meeting with counselors, and undergoing group therapy and family therapy. This typically last 8-16 weeks.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

NuLife’s partial hospitalization program, also known as day treatment, is a time-limited, intensive program- typically five to eight hours per day, five to seven days a week. This level of care is appropriate for someone who lives within a reasonable distance from the facility, and whose symptoms and behaviors do not require more structured support during the eventing.

Typically, a partial hospitalization program (PHP) is the second stage of treatment for people suffering from substance abuse. For some clients who do not receive twenty-four hour care, PHP can be the first stage of treatment. For example, clients can go into PHP when they have had a short relapse and do not require inpatient care to get back on the road to recovery.

The NuLife PHP program includes multiple group and individual therapy sessions per week, consultation with a psychiatrist and medication monitoring, and family therapy sessions. At PHP patients are allowed to sleep at home and spend time with people outside the treatment facility.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment is the last step of the treatment process. Patients who have built a strong foundation in recovery and have been able to maintain sobriety from drugs and alcohol often will participate in this treatment option. In many cases, patients are able to benefit from NuLife’s virtual outpatient program; our telehealth capabilities make it easy for recovery and counseling from the comfort of a person’s home.
