Benefits of Outpatient Treatment in Charlotte, NC

Outpatient treatment can help to provide a smooth transition from inpatient treatment or partial hospitalization programs to the real-world challenges of everyday life. With successful outpatient treatments, those suffering from substance use disorders gradually test what they have learned during the recovery process, applying the knowledge to help mitigate stress, cope with anxiety, and avoid triggers that could lead to relapse. The benefits of such programs include:

  • Ongoing recovery in a comfortable, familiar environment
  • The ability to continue working, going to school, or managing a business
  • Extra support from friends, family, and loved ones
  • Real-world application of the skills necessary for successful recovery
  • Testing of resolve in the face of triggers and temptation
