Addiction & Mental Health

    Treatment Services

    Outpatient rehabilitation offers individuals with addictions the opportunity to receive therapy and support without the necessity of an overnight stay in a facility. This treatment approach suits those who are committed to overcoming substance misuse but need to maintain their everyday activities such as employment and familial responsibilities.

    Given that the severity of substance use disorders varies among individuals, the intensity of outpatient care is adjusted to match personal recovery goals and needs. This approach provides a structured environment wherein people receive professional aid and are held accountable for their progress.

    Flexible Programmes for Recovery

    At the core of outpatient rehab are routines that don’t disrupt patients’ daily lives. Participants continue to dwell at home or in a supportive environment like a sober living house, attending sessions at a clinic or a similar facility at scheduled times. Some programmes offer evening and weekend sessions, aiding individuals in managing their recovery alongside their personal and work life.

    Outpatient programmes avail various therapeutic activities, tailored to individual needs. These include:

    • Group and Individual Counselling
      Offers a platform for sharing experiences and learning from others.
    • Family Therapy
      Involves loved ones in the treatment process for better support.
    • Education Sessions
      Provides knowledge about substance abuse and strategies for maintaining sobriety.
    • Therapeutic Interventions
      Encompass various forms like psychotherapy to address the underlying issues of addiction.
    • Medication Assistance
      When necessary, medication may be prescribed as part of the addiction treatment.

    Intensity Levels in Outpatient Care

    Different levels of care are available depending on the progression of the SUD:

    • Standard Programmes
      For those with mild addictions, these sessions occur weekly and focus on promoting behavioural changes related to substance use.
    • Intensive Outpatient Programmes (IOPs)
      Designed for a more structured regimens with attendance required for several hours each week.
    • Partial Hospitalisation Programmes (PHPs)
      These day programmes provide intensive treatment for those who need daily medical oversight but not 24/7 care.
    • Florida Model
      A hybrid that merges residential living with outpatient therapy, allowing for a gradual transition to everyday life.

    Transition between these levels depends on individual assessment and progress. A step down in intensity may happen as a patient stabilises, while a step up may be necessary if additional support is needed.

    Inpatient Rehab

    Rehab care is a good option if you are at risk of experiencing strong withdrawal symptoms when you try stop a substance. This option would also be recommended if you have experienced recurrent relapses or if you have tried a less-intensive treatment without success.


    If you're committed to your sobriety but cannot take a break from your daily duties for an inpatient program. Outpatient rehab treatment might suit you well if you are looking for a less restricted format for addiction treatment or simply need help with mental health.


    Therapy can be good step towards healing and self-discovery. If you need support without disrupting your routine, therapy offers a flexible solution for anyone wishing to enhance their mental well-being or work through personal issues in a supportive, confidential environment.

    • Medical Monitoring
