Outpatient treatment means that the patient does not reside in a treatment facility for the length of their treatment program. This allows the patient to lead a regular life outside of treatment. The patient is required to go to a clinic or counselor’s office for treatment. These sessions are held either at night or over the weekends to ensure that patients are able to maintain regular employment hours. For standard outpatient treatment, there are normally one or two therapy sessions per week. This can last for a year. For intensive outpatient treatment, sessions are usually carried out three times per week. Sessions are between ten or twenty hours that are spread out across the three days. The intensive outpatient treatment lasts for a period of one to three months. Outpatient treatment is for those who have a job, or are seeking work, and are worried that inpatient treatment would affect their ability to maintain employment. In order for outpatient treatment to be successful, the patient needs a strong support system, such as family support. Outpatient treatment is obviously not as structured or sheltered as inpatient treatment and can leave many patients vulnerable to relapse, this is why it is vital the patient feel supported.
