While enrolling in a residential treatment program can help you build a stable foundation for addiction recovery, it is not your only option. At Lakeside-Milam Recovery Centers, over 80% of our clients start their healing journeys through our outpatient programs, which we have designed to be flexible and discreet.
What Is Outpatient Treatment?
Many people who would benefit from seeking help are unable or unwilling to move into a residential facility, which can be a significant barrier to achieving long-term freedom from substance use. For example, perhaps you are a single parent with young children and no nearby relatives who can assume your family’s daily caretaking needs. Or, maybe you’re a busy executive or entrepreneur who doesn’t feel comfortable delegating your business leadership to anybody else.
The primary difference between inpatient and outpatient care is that outpatient treatment seamlessly fits within your lifestyle and schedule. You can still pursue your sobriety goals without leaving home or putting any of your personal or professional commitments on hold.
How Does Outpatient Treatment Work?
Lakeside-Milam Recovery Centers offers intensive outpatient programs for adults at nine locations throughout western Washington. For your convenience, you can choose to attend sessions during the daytime or at night, as your schedule allows. We have also continued offering our virtual outpatient services for people who can’t access physical treatment but would still benefit from telehealth.
Clients who can stay substance-free without moving into a residential treatment center can benefit from a concentrated, focused program of group therapy, individual therapy, and evaluation. This approach brings structure to your everyday life, while fostering a recovery-focused outlook perfect for those who need to maintain obligations at home. Our goal is always to find the most convenient treatment regimen possible for all our clients.
Learn More About Recovering on Your Terms
At Lakeside-Milam, our intensive outpatient program includes education about how the disease of addiction affects your body, counseling and continuing care designed for adults, and a weekly family program for your loved ones to learn about substance use disorders, healthy communication skills, and stressors from a skilled facilitator.
Many of our clients appreciate how versatile outpatient treatment is. Instead of staying with us around the clock, outpatient programming allows you to keep earning money at a job you enjoy, be present for friends and family members, and enjoy your favorite hobbies. The family therapy component also helps you improve your relationships with your loved ones.
The best candidates for intensive outpatient treatment are motivated, self-directed people with the commitment and dedication necessary to stick with the program. Lakeside-Milam has helped more than 10,000 adult men and women and overcome addiction with our accredited, stigma-free treatment philosophy. All our programs are open and accepting new clients.
