Outpatient Program

New Jersey Outpatient Drug & Alcohol Rehab

Alcohol and drug rehab programs are typically offered on an inpatient or outpatient basis. Inpatient rehab programs are typically intensive residential (live-on-site) programs that are suitable for people with serious and potentially life-threatening addictions.

Conversely, outpatient drug and alcohol treatment programs are appropriate for:

  • Those who have less serious addictions that don’t require round-the-clock monitoring and medical supervision
  • Those who have already completed inpatient treatment and are ready for the next phase of care

A main advantage of an outpatient drug program is that clients have the freedom to continue working, going to school, and living at home while getting the support they need from a structured treatment program at an outpatient alcohol and drug center.

BlueCrest Recovery Center offers two outpatient options:

What Happens During Outpatient Treatment?

During outpatient treatment clients attend individual, group, and family therapy sessions in a supportive environment. Our skilled counselors work with clients to understand the psychological factors that may be contributing to their addiction, and they provide clients with the tools necessary to identify and prevent drug-seeking behaviors.

During outpatient treatment clients work on identifying and employing their specific strengths and talents and begin actively using the recovery tools they’ve learned. We find that a client’s perspective often changes from one of having to recover into one of wanting to recover during outpatient drug treatment.

BlueCrest Recovery Center takes a holistic approach to treatment, considering each client’s mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. Our compassionate counselors help clients address issues surrounding:

  • Family relationships
  • Romantic partnerships
  • Parenting
  • Work-related issues
  • Legal issues

Any or all of these things can present barriers to recovery; it is therefore vital that those in treatment work through issues that may be hindering them from leading full, satisfying lives.

Clients with Co-Occurring Mental Health Conditions

It’s not uncommon for people suffering with a substance use disorder to have a co-occurring mental health issue. Treating co-occurring disorders is vital, as these conditions can degrade quality of life and may lead to or worsen substance abuse. Co-occurring conditions can include (but are not limited to):

  • Depression
  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Panic disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

We coordinate care closely with a team of psychologists and psychiatrists to evaluate co-occurring mental health issues in order to provide clients with the most comprehensive care possible.

Who Can Benefit from an Intensive Outpatient Program?

An outpatient treatment program is best for those who have gone through detox and attended a residential treatment program. Research supports a gradual, “step-down” method of addiction care, along with ongoing support from addiction support groups like AA; this step-down approach gives those in treatment the best chances of long-term sobriety.

During outpatient treatment, clients will work with their treatment team to create a concrete aftercare plan that best supports their needs and goals.
