Of the millions of Americans who struggle with substance use disorders, estimates indicate that only one in ten seek treatment, even though it is widely available. There are countless reasons why people choose not to seek professional addiction treatment, but among the top are the time required for inpatient treatment and the restrictions it places on the ability to tend to the responsibilities of daily life.
Simply put, many people feel they are too busy to take time away to attend long-term treatment. Addiction outpatient rehab at Spokane Falls Recovery Center offers a solution. To see if you or your loved one can benefit from an outpatient program, contact us at 844.962.2775.
Who Can Benefit from Outpatient Rehab?
Popular culture often depicts those who suffer from addiction as poor, unemployed, isolated, homeless, or living only in environments with others who are addicted. However, addiction knows no socioeconomic or demographic boundaries. In reality, most people suffering from substance use disorders do so while leading their everyday lives. They have jobs, homes, families, and friends and struggle to balance their substance abuse with their daily responsibilities. These individuals are informally referred to as “functioning alcoholics” or “functioning addicts.”
Denial can run deep for individuals who have not experienced significant negative consequences resulting from their substance abuse or addiction. They will point to their level of functioning as proof that their drug or alcohol use is not a problem. For others who know they are suffering, the stigma of addiction and fear of losing their job or relationships often prevents them from seeking help until they have reached rock-bottom. For these individuals, an outpatient rehab program is ideal. Other individuals who can benefit from outpatient rehab include:
- Those who have a solid existing support network
- Parents of young children and single parents
- Those who are self-employed, have demanding jobs, or cannot take time off work
- Those who do not require 24-hour care
- Those seeking an aftercare program following inpatient treatment
Overall, individuals who will succeed in outpatient rehab acknowledge their substance use disorder and have the desire and motivation to participate in treatment while maintaining their regular daily routine. If you feel you might benefit from outpatient rehab, call Spokane Falls Recovery Center at 844.962.2775 to speak to an intake specialist.
