Outpatient Drug Rehab
Outpatient rehab, known by the acronym IOP, is an outpatient treatment center. This means individuals in an IOP program will live elsewhere while attending group and individual therapy. IOP has many therapeutic and community benefits. Especially while in sober living. We believe in IOP and have partnered with DFW Drug Rehab (DDR). DDR is an awesome outpatient center here in Dallas, and they do excellent work for our residents!
We have 15 dedicated beds solely for individuals to attend outpatient while in our sober living program.
Outpatient rehab can be extremely helpful for those struggling with a myriad of addiction problems. Whether it’s an addiction to heroin, meth, cocaine, or alcohol, attending an outpatient will benefit those struggling.
Why is outpatient so helpful? The research points to outpatient being beneficial because of a few key elements.
1. Clinical Approach.
Focusing on the core issues of why we use, the co-occurring disorders, and how to fix ourselves internally. This internal shift is the key to finding long-term recovery.
Not only is having a community a fundamental human trait but connecting to those who are struggling similarly is extremely powerful. For example, would you rather connect with someone who knows your struggles, or someone who just talks about them?
There is nothing for us recovering drug addicts like legitimate accountability. In order to avoid running from the truth, it helps all of us to have an accountable group who will not let us get away from old behaviors. The research on accountability is clear on this.
Outpatient treatment is a form of rehabilitation from addiction and alcoholism. The process of outpatient treatment includes 3-hour groups 3X a week. Groups are led by trained clinicians, who educate the clients, allow community engagement, and assist in strategies to find long-term recovery.
Outpatient is truly unique compared to other models of treatments. Outpatient recovery groups allow people to have normal lives while getting the care they need. This is because it lets clients have the following:
1. Great Schedules
The scheduling of groups permits clients with full-time jobs the option to get quality care while continuing with their outside lives.
2. Inexpensive Care
Compared to other forms of treatment, IOP is much cheaper than residential treatment. Plus, as insurance is accepted, the out of pocket is typically dwarfed in comparison. Especially with treatment centers that are out of network.
3. Structure That Isn’t Overbearing
The accountability and structure in outpatient are not nearly as intense as residential. However, some people do not need that level of care. Especially when paired with the benefits of sober living, IOP can be extremely useful and much less stringent.
What's The Difference Between
Outpatient and Inpatient Rehab?
Outpatient rehab, as it’s definition suggests, takes place in an outpatient setting. This means you do not live at the facility where you get your care. In contrast, inpatient drug rehabs offer beds to clients that physically live at their respective centers. With inpatient, clients receive care, meals, and groups, while also living at the facility 24/7.
Another big difference between outpatient and inpatient is the schedule. While outpatient is typically 9-12 hours per week (3 days per week), inpatient is 8 hours a day, 5-6 days per week. The intensity in schedules is usually why inpatient is suggested for those who are freshly getting off of drugs.

The Benefits of
When we talk about the benefits of outpatient, we usually begin by addressing the obvious therapeutic benefits. While this may be self explanatory, we must also understand the structure of the IOP itself, and it’s unique approach in combating addiction and alcoholism.
The biggest benefit from attending outpatient are the recovery rates (As compared to just sober living independently). We compiled a list of rates for the past year, and the statistics are staggering. Over 90% of our residents have maintained sobriety while attending an outpatient rehab.
IOP’s usually have many groups throughout the week. Most enrolled persons attend between 6-30 hours per week in group. With so many hours of group therapy, it is hard to escape the drastic beneficial elements of IOP.
For starters, group therapy is extremely unique to individual therapy. Having a group of people all attending a group to better themselves has an immediate community benefit. In group therapy we learn to be open and honest with multiple people, not just a certified therapist. This allows us to connect deeply with those in group with us. It is one thing for a therapist, who spent years learning disorders, to assist us. But it is a completely different experience to have people just like us, who struggle with similar issues, to help us along on the road of recovery.
Dual Diagnosis Support
Some of us deal with serious trauma, anxiety or depression. These mental disorders cannot usually be cured by attending AA meetings, meeting with a sponsor and getting into shape. So, sometimes we need the clinical support that is offered in IOP. When we learn to trust those with years of experience, clinical degrees and specific training, we are better suited to get help.
Outpatient Rehabs have trained clinicians who lead groups. This is different from sober living homes. Sober Living homes typically do not have managers who are licensed clinicians, with long backgrounds in clinical psychology.
IOP is not just for drug addicts and alcoholics. There are specific drug/alcohol IOP’s, but there are also many non substance abuse programs. These programs focus on the mental health issues that plague our society. Anxiety, the leader in mental health diagnosis, has a whopping amount of people in its grasp. According to ADAA.org, over 40 million people suffer from clinical anxiety in the U.S…. These numbers are astronomical. And we can only help the problem by helping ourselves.
Depression is also a leading disorder, and attending IOP for depression can be extremely helpful. For similar reasons, dealing with depression in a group setting is important. Because when we are depressed we tend to isolate. And we can only combat depression by doing something new. So, when we join group therapy we are able to deal with our problems collectively.
Most outpatient programs charge about $300-$400 a day. However, because insurance is usually accepted, it is likely much less. DDR, for example, accepts many large insurance providers. So, cost will not be nearly as much out of pocket.
Out Of Pocket
For DDR outpatient program, the cash pay (out of pocket) rates are as follows:
6 Weeks: $6,500
8 Weeks: $8,500
12 Weeks: $10,000
