Outpatient care allows you to continue with your day to day activities, living at your own home, attending the center for regular treatment.

Designed With The Client in Mind

The Excel Center takes great care to recommend the appropriate level of service for each client. Our outpatient programs are more flexible than the intensive outpatient care programs. Clients will already have detoxed and made significant progress with their recovery either in residential care or as an Intensive Outpatient. Outpatient care allows you to continue with your day to day activities, living at your own home, attending the center for regular treatment. Treatment usually takes place once a week, typically for one hour sessions, at a time which suits them. Outpatient programs help to deliver a multifaceted, bespoke approach to ongoing recovery treatment options that are designed with the client in mind.

There are five stages of recovery:

  • Precontemplation
  • Contemplation
  • Preparation
  • Action
  • Maintenance

Outpatient programs are designed for those who are between the fourth and fifth stage. These programs assist with clients’ reintegration into society and help maintain a happy and healthy lifestyle. By remaining engaged in the therapeutic process whilst still attending to your day-to-day responsibilities you will learn, with support, how to overcome life’s hurdles. Outpatient programs foster a positive environment for skilful interactions and can lead to lasting bonds that help people hold each other accountable to their recovery goals. The friendships made in outpatient programs can be a pillar of support that lasts a lifetime.

Our outpatient programs are designed to accommodate the needs of the client, whether that be scheduling around employment, appointments, assisting with transport or providing childcare. Without the need for round the clock support staff or live in care, outpatient programs provide the perfect opportunity for those who are keen to be active in the recovery community and continue their journey.

Benefits of Our Outpatient Program

Outpatient programs are suitable for:

  • Those who do not necessitate live in care or round the clock support staff
  • Those who genuinely want to continue to grow and improve their health and well being
  • Those who want to practice alternative and holistic therapies to further their recovery journey
  • Those who hold steady employment
  • Those who have children
  • Those who want to remain active in the recovery community
  • Those who want to explore different treatment options that they were not previously offered
  • Those who do not have self-harming tendencies or suicidal thoughts

In order to work towards, and maintain a sustainable recovery, most people recovering from a substance use disorder, a mental health condition, or alcohol use disorder will benefit immensely from regular support. We understand that addiction can be a lonely place, which is why we emphasise intervention and connection with others as one of the cornerstones of recovery.

Duration of Outpatient Programs

Unlike some of the other, more intensive treatment programs offered, there is no exact timeline for outpatient programs. However we do encourage people to attend at least once a week, but if sessions need to be missed due to other responsibilities, they can be rescheduled. Outpatient programs are flexible, and they are expertly crafted to give clients control over their own recovery process. Length of sessions can also be adjusted to fit with the desires and the requirements of each client. If you or anyone you know is continuing their recovery from a substance use disorder, alcohol use disorder, or a mental health condition, encourage them to feel in control again with an outpatient program.
