The Best Programs Available in Intensive Outpatient Rehab

intensive outpatient rehab

Most people are quick to blame the addicts for their substance use. However, addiction is not a choice. It is a disease; one that alters the brain. This is why medical professionals nationwide call addiction a “substance use disorder,” or SUD. Like with many conditions, genetics and environment are significant factors in the development of addiction. Plus, the effects on long-term health are staggering. With this in mind, it’s not fair to label addiction as entirely preventable. This is why treatment is necessary, as it would be for any disease. The problem is this: who has the time to dedicate to recovery? Actually, everyone does. Recovery doesn’t have to bring your schedule— or your life— to a screeching halt. Intensive outpatient rehab facilities offer many of the same programs, services, and recovery benefits as any residential treatment center. Better yet, the best ones have the same rates of success.

Have I Become a Functioning Alcoholic?

For many young adults and even plenty of older adults, drinking is a way of life. From binging in college to passing time with cocktails after work in the professional world, alcohol plays a significant role in American culture. While most people, even those who begin drinking in high school or college, manage to develop healthy drinking habits as they age, others aren’t so lucky. The rush and intoxication of binge drinking can be too much to overcome, leading to tens of thousands of adults who rely on alcohol to make it through the day.

Unfortunately, societal perceptions of alcoholism often fail to clearly demarcate the line between social drinking and a real problem. In TV shows, books, comics, and movies, frequent drinking is portrayed as normal and even expected, severely overshadowing the threat of alcohol addiction. This can make it very hard for adults who drink regularly to identify or admit to an addiction, severely decreasing the likelihood of seeking help before it’s too late. This is especially true for functional alcoholics.
