What is an outpatient rehab center?

Outpatient rehab is a type of addiction recovery center where the addicted person can get recovery treatment while working and staying with family and friends.

It requires the patient to visit the center on weekends or fixed hours a day according to addiction. Such treatment centers benefit people with low or moderate addiction levels.

What do we offer as a complementary treatment module?

We understand that addiction, substance abuse, and mental disorders are often 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 for 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 outpatient substance abuse programs, we assign an expert therapist to provide individual therapy to 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
  • Serenity Outpatient Treatment Center offers several alternative treatment models. This includes personalized treatments which provide the opportunity to find therapies that are better suited to each client. These therapies include:
