Dallas Outpatient therapy services

Outpatient rehabilitation therapy allows recovering addicts to continue receiving medical and psychiatric treatment and to establish healthy coping strategies learned during inpatient treatment. Our Dallas outpatient therapy services are ideal for recovering addicts and alcoholics seeking structure and support in their current environments. To accommodate all schedules, Riverwalk Ranch offers flexible scheduling that allow clients to tend to their daily responsibilities while getting the treatment they need to remain clean and sober. 
Dallas Outpatient Therapy Services

Recovering clients visit Riverwalk Ranch’s Outpatient Center three to five days of the week for cognitive behavioral therapy, pharmacological therapy, family therapy, and life coaching. Our Dallas outpatient therapy services allow clients to get long-term recovery support while continuing to live within the community. We also encourage family participation, individual counseling sessions, group therapy, and life skill workshops that are focused on working through the 12 Steps, as well as accountability and relapse prevention, all conducive to sober living.

Treatment Modalities

When you arrive at Riverwalk Ranch you’ll undergo a comprehensive medical and psychological evaluation that looks at your substance abuse history, co-occurring mental health disorders, and ongoing medical issues. This initial assessment ensures that you receive a customized care that will effectively address your needs. In our treatment program, you’ll work with a primary therapist and multidisciplinary team to collaborate on your individualized treatment plan, focusing on your interpersonal strengths, rehabilitation needs, assessments, and preferences. Your customized treatment schedule is revisited throughout the program stay to look at your treatment progression and to make sure your level of care is still clinically appropriate.

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET)

  • Traumatic Incident Reduction Therapy (TIR)
