Outpatient in KS
Some substances abusers want to be able to seek confidential help without it interfering too much with work, school, or other social commitments. Depending on the individual and other factors about their substance addiction or abuse, outpatient care can be an option. Outpatient care refers to treatment where the patient does not stay for more than 24 hours. A prolonged absence from work or school has a certain stigma attached to it, particularly if others discover that it is for substance abuse or addiction. Some drug rehabilitation facilities offer outpatient treatment and care. This can involve meetings, counseling or other such programs throughout the day. Some facilities offer individual as well as group counseling. The cost of visiting an outpatient care facility can be lower, due to fewer overhead fees that the facility has. Also, some insurance providers may be able to cover some of the cost of seeking treatment at an outpatient facility, but it is important to check with your provider. Also, depending on your level of income, you may be eligible for state funding in Kansas.
If you are concerned that outpatient treatment is not as “good” as inpatient care, a study by the University of California Los Angeles published in 2007 showed that substance abusers benefited from both outpatient and residential care. In Kansas there are a number of facilities that offer outpatient drug and substance abuse rehabilitation.
