Outpatient Substance Abuse Programs at Our Rehab Treatment Center

Medical Counseling of Rehab Patient

Serenity Malibu run a range of outpatient substance abuse treatments that are specifically designed for the patient suffering from mild substance addiction. At our center, we provide individual counseling, medical care, therapies, and flexibility to the individual. The patient stays at home and only visits the facility as and when required to go through the rehabilitation process.

Our treatment center provides fully customized substance abuse programs based on the patient’s severity. The individual has the option to select a daycare program, an intensive program, or aftercare based on their needs. At our Center we aim is to overcome addiction with the help of our highly skilled medical professionals, counsellors, and peer support staff.

Our Criteria for Outpatient Substance Abuse Programs:

Not all addicts are eligible to join our outpatient rehab center. The patient must meet the following criteria which decide whether they are suitable or not to join the program.

  • The patient who has mild addiction and who will not experience the withdrawal symptoms when they stop using the substance.
  • They have a strong support system at home, from family and friends.
  • They have job security and the flexibility to attend treatment, either due to a shorter workday or an understanding employer. If they are self-employed, they are particularly suited to adjusting their structure to make the necessary space for treatment.
  • The patient who is not in touch with any other addicted person in a family, workplace, or friends.

Outpatient substance abuse programs require full commitment from the patient’s side.

If the individual cannot guarantee that they will be able to attend all sessions without pressure from their work or home environment, they are better suited to inpatient rehab, where they have no choice but to commit.

Aftercare Program by Serenity Mlibu

Outpatient Aftercare:

We runs an aftercare program for those patients who have attended our inpatient rehab programs.

This includes sessions that will continue the therapy process they began in rehab, assistance in applying their training in everyday life, and support from counselors and other attendees. Our outpatient aftercare sessions are scheduled to occur within the individual’s schedule, so as not to disrupt their return to normal life.

What do we Offer as a Complementary Treatment Module?

We understand that addiction, substance abuse, and mental disorders are many of the times co-occurring. Hence our experts provide various therapies to help the patients deal with the situation.

Our Outpatient Rehab Center provides clients with some complementary treatment modules as part of the recovery process:


We have expert staff of psychiatrists who can diagnose personality disorders like depression, anxiety, OCD, bipolar disorder, etc. We prescribe non-addictive medication to treat these disorders and also recommend inpatient rehab to clients who are likely to struggle with outpatient treatment.

Individual Therapy

In an outpatient substance abuse program, we assign an expert therapist to provide individual therapy to the client. With this therapist, the patient will work on discovering the external and internal forces that led to the addiction, including co-occurring disorders diagnosed by the psychiatrist. They will explore their family history, unearthing the source of unhealthy coping mechanisms, as a starting point for developing healthy coping mechanisms in their place.

Group Therapy

We provide group therapy to the patients as a part of our outpatient aftercare program. Our goal is to offer the patients support rather than therapy, developing an encouragement in them by learning experiences of other people.

Family Therapy

Sometimes, family dysfunction is a causative factor in the individual’s addiction. As our patients will be living with their families during the outpatient program, we give utmost importance to family therapy.

Relapse Prevention

In our outpatient treatment center, clients attend relapse prevention sessions to learn what they can do to avoid triggers, manage cravings, and bring their recovery into their everyday lives. They will also gain insight on how to rebound from a relapse.

Alternative Treatment Modules

At Serenity outpatient treatment center, we offer several alternative treatment modules are offered. This includes personalized treatments which provide the opportunity to find therapies that are better suited to each client. These therapies include:

  • Hypnotherapy (carried out by certified practitioners)
  • Mindfulness therapy
  • Acupuncture and Massage
  • Brainspotting, a relatively new brain-based therapy
  • Educational programs on substances and neurobiology
