Outpatient Treatment Center for Substance Abuse

Alcohol and drug addiction are serious issues society faces right now. Although these substances are highly addictive, with the right treatment, recovery is possible.

A rehabilitation center can help you escape addiction traps. Most people think recovery is only possible by staying in a rehab center during the treatment. However, this is not true. One can get treatment while staying at home with family and continuing a professional career.

Serenity Malibu offers the most effective outpatient addiction recovery programs.

We help addicts develop healthy coping mechanisms and relapse prevention strategies through our rehabilitation programs. We focus on providing support to addicts and their families. Our team of experts provides personalized treatment plans tailored to each individual’s needs.

Outpatient Center for Addiction Recovery

Here’s more about outpatient substance abuse treatment and how we can help.

What is an Outpatient Rehab Center?

In such treatment centers, people can receive addiction treatment while balancing their social and professional lives.

Patients in outpatient substance abuse programs need to attend rehab for fixed hours or weekends, based on how serious their addiction is.

These programs work best for people with low or moderate addiction levels.

Serenity Malibu offers a range of outpatient substance abuse programs specifically designed for patients with mild addictions. We also provide counseling, medical care, therapies, and flexibility for individuals. The patient stays at home and only visits the facility as and when required to undergo rehabilitation.

Our outpatient treatment center provides fully customized addiction programs. Individuals can select a day program, intensive program, or aftercare program based on their addiction severity. At our rehab center, we aim to overcome addiction with the help of our highly skilled medical professionals, counselors, and peer support staff.

Serenity Malibu’s Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment

We offer addiction recovery programs for individuals who want a flexible way to recover from addiction while maintaining a normal daily routine. Those who have already completed residential treatment can also enroll in outpatient treatment programs to enhance their coping skills with the outside world.

Patients at our outpatient rehab center receive all the necessary support and services to prevent relapses and live long sober lives. Here are some of the programs we offer:

Outpatient Day Program at Serenity Malibu

Day Programs:

Day programs at Serenity Malibu are most suitable for individuals with few work commitments or can take some time off.

The individual has to come 5-7 days a week for several hours depending on their condition. At the end of the day, after structured treatment, patients can go home.

Intensive Outpatient Program at Serenity


Intensive outpatient substance abuse programs are tailored to fit the individual’s needs and availability.

Our IOP treatment is suitable for individuals who do not require medical detox. They have no flexibility or understanding from employers and have been diagnosed with a mild substance abuse disorder. Programs like this are usually held on weekends.

Outpatient Aftercare Program by Serenity Mlibu


We run an aftercare program for patients who attend our inpatient rehab programs.

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

What do we offer as a complementary treatment module?

We understand that substance abuse, and mental disorders are often co-occurring. We therefore provide our patients with different therapies to help them cope with the situation.

Our Outpatient Rehab Center provides clients with some complementary treatment modules for the recovery process:

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

  • Individual Therapy
  • In our outpatient substance abuse programs, we assign an expert therapist to provide individual therapy for the client. With this therapist, the patient will discover 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 patients as part of our outpatient aftercare program. Our goal is to offer patients support rather than therapy, encouraging them through learning from the experiences of others.

  • Family Therapy
  • Family dysfunction can sometimes be a contributing factor to addiction. In the outpatient program, our patients will have the opportunity to live with their families, so we place a high value on therapy that involves the entire family.

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

  • Alternative Treatment Modules
  • Our outpatient substance abuse programs offer several alternative treatment models. Clients are provided with personalized treatments that provide them with the opportunity to find therapies that are best suited to their needs. 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

Admission criteria for our outpatient rehab center:

Not all addicts are eligible for our outpatient rehab program. The patient must meet the following criteria to join our treatment program.

  • The patient has mild addiction and will not experience withdrawal symptoms when stopping the substance.
  • They have a strong support system at home, from family and friends.
  • They have job security and flexibility to attend treatment, 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 is not in touch with another addicted person in family, workplace, or friends.

Outpatient substance abuse treatment programs require full commitment from the patient.

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.
