Outpatient Program In Columbus, Ohio

Outpatient treatment programs offer a way for patients to continue going to work, school, and spending time at home with their family while receiving the addiction treatment and care they need.

Unlike inpatient treatment programs where patients stay at the treatment facility for the whole treatment, outpatient treatment programs allow patients to attend therapy sessions and receive medical care part-time.

Outpatient treatment programs are great for patients who have a supportive home environment and a low risk of relapse. These programs offer a wide range of services, including individual and group therapy, medical management, and holistic therapies such as yoga and meditation. Patients can attend therapy sessions during the day or evening, so they can continue working or attending school.

One of the advantages of outpatient treatment programs is that they are often more affordable than inpatient programs. Patients don't have to pay for room and board and can continue to work or attend school, which can help them stay financially stable. Additionally, outpatient treatment programs give patients the chance to practice the skills they learn in therapy in real-world situations, which can help prevent relapse.

However, outpatient treatment programs may not be right for everyone. Patients who have a high risk of relapse or who need intensive medical care may benefit more from an inpatient treatment program. It's important for patients to talk to a healthcare professional to figure out which type of program is best for them.


Our Outpatient Treatment Program utilizes a variety of different services that are delivered in a highly structured manner. The program also has different levels of treatment intensity. The level of treatment intensity is determined, on an individual basis, by using the ASAM Criteria’s Level of Care. Our patients are expected to achieve certain milestones as they progress through each level of care.
