Outpatient Rehab for Alcohol Abuse

More About Chronic Alcoholism Treatment

Alcohol abuse and alcoholism have long since been some of the most serious and life-threatening public health threats faced by American citizens of all ages and demographics. According to the National Center on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, it is estimated that 85.6 percent of men and women over the age of 18 drink alcohol at least once during the year 2019. Out of members of the same demographic, during the same year, 29.7 percent of men and 22.2 percent of women admitted to binge drinking, and 14.5 million men and women over the age of 12 had a diagnosable alcohol abuse disorder. Alcohol abuse and alcoholism are extremely widespread and prevalent diseases, and they affect men and women across the country – wreaking immense havoc and causing permanent devastation in the lives of many.

Overcome Alcohol Addiction With Intensive Outpatient

The good news is that no matter how severe an alcohol abuse disorder has become, recovery is always possible. However, the treatment methods that work for one person might not work as well for another. Some people can get sober simply by going to Alcoholics Anonymous – others require the structure provided by an inpatient alcohol rehab center. When it comes to alcohol abuse, it is important to note that medical detox is always a necessary first step on the road to recovery, seeing as the symptoms associated with alcohol withdrawal can be severe and life-threatening if not properly treated. Once a person has successfully undergone alcohol withdrawal, he or she will then transfer into the next appropriate level of care. For some people, this will be inpatient rehab. For some people, this will be outpatient rehab – like the one provided by Agape Treatment Center. Our outpatient alcohol rehab is ideal for men and women who have pre-existing obligations that they cannot step away from entirely for months at a time, or for people who suffer from a mild or moderate alcohol abuse disorder and no serious underlying conditions.

Outpatient Rehab for Alcohol Addiction

Addiction treatment is not a one-size-fits-all experience, just as the symptoms associated with drug addiction or alcoholism vary on a person-to-person basis. While inpatient alcohol rehab is generally recommended, this level of care does not make stand for everyone who needs some degree of alcohol rehab. There are several reasons why outpatient alcohol rehab might be a better fit, including:

  • A person has been drinking heavily or has been engaging in binge drinking once every so often, but he or she has not yet developed a physical dependence on alcohol and related consequences are not severe. This is usually the case when alcohol abuse is situational rather than chronic. For example, say someone goes through a very painful breakup and begins drinking heavily to numb the emotional pain. This is an example of situational alcohol abuse, and it can often be addressed in an outpatient setting.
  • The person in question requires some degree of treatment, but he or she also has existing obligations that cannot be ignored. For example, say somebody begins drinking excessively but he or she is also the sole caretaker of a family member. In this case, going to inpatient rehab might not be an option.
  • The person who needs alcohol rehab is in a tight financial situation, and he or she cannot afford to go to inpatient rehab for three full months. If you are not in the position to pay for a higher level of care, outpatient alcohol rehab might be an ideal choice.

Agape Treatment Center and Outpatient Alcohol Rehab

At Agape Treatment Center we offer several levels of clinical care geared towards meeting the unique needs of each client. We understand that inpatient drug rehab is not a viable option for everyone. In some cases, a person can recover by entering into a medical detox program and transitioning directly into outpatient alcohol addiction treatment.
