Outpatient Rehab for Drugs & Alcohol
Outpatient rehabilitation is a popular addiction treatment program and is useful in the treatment of drug and alcohol use disorders. In an outpatient addiction treatment program, individuals live at home and can recover from substance abuse while being able to attend to work, school, and family obligations.
Outpatient rehab usually takes place after detox and inpatient stay at a drug and alcohol addiction treatment center, though, some people may prefer an outpatient setting earlier on. Throughout each of these programs, comprehensive addiction services may include medications, therapy, counseling, and support groups.
If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, know that there are options available to help you. Everyone deserves to live a fulfilling life; get help today.

Riverwalk Ranch Outpatient Program
When seeking help for a drug or alcohol problem, it is essential to decide on the right level of care. There are many factors to consider, including a diagnosis, previous treatment history, and availability on the patient’s part.
At Riverwalk Ranch, we know that not everyone can put their life on hold to complete a 30-day inpatient rehab. That is why we provide a flexible treatment program that utilizes the full spectrum of our evidence-based treatment in an intensive outpatient program.
At our treatment facilities in Dallas, Tx, we accommodate all of our clients’ personal and professional responsibilities. With flexible scheduling, we can provide a more convenient alternative for receiving much-needed treatment. This allows clients to honor their commitments outside of rehab.
Clients come to our Dallas intensive outpatient rehab three to five days a week. They receive therapies such as:
- Cognitive-behavioral health therapy
- Pharmacological therapy
- Family therapy
- Life coaching
Our intensive outpatient program gives clients the accountability they need. While at the same time allowing for the opportunity to receive support from a community outside of rehab. We also encourage family participation to help heal the wounds that come with active addiction. Our family program at Riverwalk Ranch provides individual counseling sessions, group therapy, and life skill workshops.
The goal of our outpatient program is to give our clients a treatment plan that will result in long term recovery. We equip them for the task by helping them work through a 12-Step program. By going through the program they will learn accountability and relapse prevention. Skills that are necessary to break the cycle of addiction and live a sober and healthy life.
Substance We Specialize In
Though Riverwalk Ranch accepts and can treat patients of all various substance addictions, there are four that we are most familiar with:
Who is Outpatient Treatment Designed for?
An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) IS designed for clients who:
- do not require medical detox or 24-hour supervision,
- have recently completed inpatient rehabilitation,
- live in a supportive environment free of drugs and alcohol, and
- need or want a flexible schedule for treatment.
An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is NOT designed for clients who:
- have physical dependencies and need a supervised detox,
- have failed to get sober in previous attempts,
- live in an environment that can trigger the use of drugs or alcohol, and
- doubt their ability to abstain from alcohol alone.
Intensive outpatient programs include treatment for drug and alcohol addiction and therapy sessions. Therapy encourages relapse prevention, and aid the recovery process by providing support.
Drug and alcohol treatment, such as medication management, teaches responsibility for one's actions. These services provide the foundation that is needed to achieve a successful recovery:
Individual Therapy: Patients can benefit from one-on-one psychotherapy (talk therapy) sessions with a therapist in an IOP. A personal setting can help uncover underlying issues that developed alongside one’s addiction. This insight can be used to establish healthy habits and coping mechanisms for triggering circumstances. One effective and commonly used therapy is known as “behavioral therapy” where a patient learns how to change negative reactions into positive reactions.
Group Therapy: Group therapy sessions provide the opportunity to develop communication skills through socializing with those who are also participating in the program. By partaking in support groups, the client creates a support system for themselves. It promotes structure and discipline in everyday activities and reinforces the healthy ways of interacting in a social environment.
Medication Management: Treatment for drug and alcohol abuse will often include medications for detox, withdrawal management, and relapse prevention. In an outpatient program, patients learn how to manage their medication. By doing this, they can learn responsibility and how to be accountable for their health.
