When addiction takes over a person’s life, it can be overwhelming to think about how to get help. However, an addiction treatment program is usually the best course of action for someone who is ready to end their drug or alcohol use. There are many levels of care in a typical addiction treatment program that range from residential programs to outpatient rehab.
At Lighthouse Recovery Institute, we proudly provide a range of programs to help people overcome addiction. Once someone is admitted into our care, we work with them to determine which of our addiction treatment programs, including outpatient rehab, would be best for that person.

What Is Outpatient Rehab?
Our outpatient drug and alcohol treatment program at Lighthouse Recovery Institute is appropriate for individuals who have completed more intensive treatment programs, such as inpatient rehab. At this level of care, patients live independently or in sober living residences and attend weekly individual therapy. The clinical focus is on key elements to sustain long-term recovery, including life skills development and relapse prevention.
Additionally, individuals can attend weekly group therapy sessions based on their needs. Outpatient drug rehab serves as a continuing care option for individuals ready to transition from an addiction treatment setting into a fully independent life. Patients develop vocational skills at this stage in their treatment and are working, pursuing education, or beginning to achieve their long-term goals. Individuals continue to have full access to medical staff, case management assistance, and our auxiliary services during treatment.
Drug and Alcohol Outpatient Treatment
Outpatient treatment encompasses different levels of intensity that depend on the patient’s needs and expectations. Every addiction center handles outpatient rehab a little differently, but it usually includes levels of care, such as:
- Partial hospitalization program (PHP) – A PHP provides around twenty hours of highly intensive treatment each week to support patients who need daily or intense monitoring in a structured setting to continue their recovery process.
- Intensive outpatient program (IOP) – This level of care also provides an interdisciplinary team of providers, but it doesn’t have extensive medical and clinical support like a PHP does.
- Standard outpatient program (OP) – This type of program is designed to help patients focus on changing behaviors associated with substance abuse.
Benefits of Outpatient Treatment
Many have already created a healthy routine, including work, self-care, and leisure. Thus, the outpatient program in Boynton Beach, FL at Lighthouse Recovery Institute offers significant freedom for patients to pursue their responsibilities. At the same time, we ensure that patients have a safe place to discuss any developing issues that may arise during their lives and ongoing therapy to help implement relapse prevention, improve relationships, and attain greater functioning and quality of life.
Outpatient treatment services are available to those who have completed addiction treatment either with us or detox and inpatient programs with one of the facilities we work alongside. Services are available for as long as there is a benefit to be gained. We encourage our alumni to attend groups whenever they need additional support from staff and the community.
Therapy Options in Outpatient Treatment
At Lighthouse Recovery Institute, our outpatient rehab program uses a variety of evidence-based therapies to treat substance use disorders.
