Intensive Outpatient Program

The Palms Recovery offers an Intensive Outpatient Program for those who have completed a residential or day-night treatment program or for those who are in need of intensive treatment but do not require a residential setting. Clients can get intensive treatment while living a life in recovery. Intensive outpatient treatment consists of group and individual therapy sessions for at least 9 hours per week. Sessions are offered in during the day and in the evening, for those who work during the day.

How does the Outpatient Drug Rehab program work?

Outpatient addiction treatment for both drug and alcohol rehab is flexible. Classes are four days a week, three hours per day. Group times vary by location. Outpatient groups last four to six weeks. Many patients have work and family commitments. They may also have school and other obligations. If you do, too, the program will fit your daily lifestyle. You can begin the program right away.
