Outpatient Treatment for Addiction
Near Fort Worth, TX
Outpatient treatment for substance addiction is one of the first steps toward sobriety. Mallard Lake Detox Center, a luxury rehab, offers outpatient care in a resort-style environment.
Benefits of outpatient drug treatment
Every year, millions of Americans decide to get treatment for a substance abuse disorder – from alcohol addiction to prescription drug abuse. People from all walks of life turn to outpatient treatment to detox and finally become sober.
Outpatient drug treatment takes place at home or away from a drug treatment facility. It’s not as intensive as inpatient care, but it’s effective at detoxing and helping people become sober.
Your treatment team may decide an outpatient program is good for you if you don’t have any co-occurring medical conditions and if your chances of becoming sober at home are high.

An Intensive Outpatient Program, or IOP, is a type of outpatient treatment for drug addiction that requires patients to visit the facility for several hours throughout the week.
A Partial Hospitalization Program is another type of intensive drug treatment that requires patients to stay at the facility during the day and return to their place of residence once treatment is done.
What to expect
Alcohol and drug addiction education
Treatment begins with educating patients about the effects of alcohol and drugs. People are often not aware how substances affect their body and how addiction works. Substance abuse education helps people learn about their addiction so they can understand how to overcome it.
Individual and group therapy is now part of many outpatient treatment programs. You can expect to attend these sessions throughout the week during treatment. You may also have the option of attending therapy online.
If you have a co-existing condition, such as anxiety, panic attacks, or depression, a doctor may recommend you take medication during outpatient addiction treatment to help alleviate any symptoms that could interfere with your treatment for drug addiction.
Group outings and activities
It’s possible you’ll go on group trips or participate in activities with other patients seeking drug addiction treatment. You may go on a group hike, visit a scenic location, or do other activities as part of a group.
