Who Is Best Suited for the Guest House’s Day/Night Outpatient Program?

Recovery is not a linear journey. Once you leave treatment, there’s still work to do as you integrate all the lessons learned. For those who have been struggling with addiction, mental health, or trauma for any amount of time, it’s important to have a bridge between treatment and ongoing recovery. The day/night outpatient program at The Guest House provides this bridge. Our program is designed to help you journey through healing with confidence and success.

Intensive Outpatient Programs

The day/night outpatient program at The Guest House can also be referred to as an intensive outpatient program (IOP). These programs are transitional steps in the recovery process that provide continued support after a detox program or inpatient care.

This type of program is also suitable for individuals who do not require full-time inpatient care or as a structured alternative to residential treatment. IOPs give you the tools, resources, and structure necessary to ensure a successful recovery as you resume daily life activities.

Benefits of IOPs

IOPs do not require overnight stays at the treatment facility. Instead, they provide a structured daily schedule that allows you to go home at night and continue life’s regular responsibilities. At The Guest House, you’ll learn how to balance your personal life with recovery in a productive way.

According to Psychiatric Services, IOPs are “alternatives to inpatient and residential treatment.” They are designed to provide psychosocial reports, relapse management, and coping strategies. Other benefits of an IOP may include:

  • Ongoing clinical support
  • Peer support and group therapy
  • Life skills building
  • Daily structure
  • Accountability

IOP Statistics

Psychiatric Services notes that IOPs have been consistently identified as the second most popular outpatient treatment option in the United States. Regular outpatient treatment is the most prevalent option. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N-SSATS): IOP treatment was offered at 45% of treatment facilities in 2020. This high percentage shows the importance of IOPs in providing stability after treatment.

Day/Night Outpatient Program After Inpatient Care

After a person has completed inpatient care, they may find it difficult to adjust to daily life again. Everyday stresses may trigger old habits and self-defeating behaviors. During this transitional period, relapse is common, making it more important than ever to have support. A day/night outpatient program like that at The Guest House can create a bridge for this transitional phase.

Relapse Rates

A 2011 paper in Current Psychiatry Reports states relapse is a “common and rapid” process. The paper pointed to several studies showing relapse rates to be “as high as 65% to 70% in the 90-day period following treatment.” Current Psychiatry Reports note that some clinical symptoms may help identify individuals who are more prone to relapse after treatment. These symptoms include depression, a history of trauma, high stress, and stronger drug cravings.

Another group that may be more susceptible to relapse is individuals who have struggled with addiction, mental health, or trauma for a long amount of time. This is why it’s so important to have a plan for continued support in recovery, even after inpatient care.

The Day/Night Outpatient Program at The Guest House

At The Guest House, we offer specialized programs for every step of your treatment and recovery journey. The day/night outpatient program will provide you with high-quality treatment on a schedule that works best for you.

Who Is The Day/Night Program For?

Our day/night outpatient program is a popular next step for those who have completed detox or inpatient treatment. This program will allow you to continue treatment in a structured environment with the support you need to find lasting success.

This program is also a good choice for individuals who don’t require intensive inpatient care. If you live in a stable home environment, attending this program will give you nearly all the same benefits as inpatient treatment without actually living at the facility.

Some people simply cannot swing a 24/7 treatment environment. Family and work obligations, for example, may prevent them from attending residential care. In this case, the day/night program will allow you to receive the support and structure you need in your recovery journey while still taking care of life’s responsibilities.

Program Structure

The day/night outpatient program at The Guest House typically lasts a few months as you get adjusted to sobriety and regain your physical, mental, and emotional strength. Individuals who transition into the day/night program from residential treatment will be required to meet from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM, Monday through Friday. For individuals who are attending treatment at The Guest House on an outpatient-only basis, our day/night programming is available from 3:00 PM to 9:00 PM, Monday through Friday. You are required to attend for 25 hours throughout the week.

Comprehensive Care

Our day/night program will be just one component in your comprehensive recovery journey. Addiction, mental health, and trauma recovery are ongoing, lifelong processes that require individualized needs.

While you’re attending our day/night program, you will also be able to take part in traditional talk therapies like individual therapy and group sessions. Talk therapy is an excellent tool that helps you process thoughts, feelings, and emotions in a productive manner. To round out your healing process, you will also find holistic therapies to help you heal your mind, body, and soul. At The Guest House, we offer a wide range of modalities, including meditation, art therapy, somatic healing, and more.

No matter where you are on your journey,  at The Guest House, you will find the support and tools you need for lifelong recovery, success, and true inner peace.

Addiction, mental health, and trauma recovery do not end after inpatient treatment. In fact, without a structured environment, you may be susceptible to relapse. The day/night outpatient program at The Guest House provides this structured environment to help you transition from residential to outpatient care. This program is highly structured while giving you the ability to resume life’s daily responsibilities. Many people who come to the day/night program are from inpatient care, while many more may choose this outpatient setting in lieu of residential treatment. The Guest House offers a full spectrum of comprehensive treatments that will allow you to find deep healing for your mind, body, and soul. Call us today at (855) 483-7800.
