Outpatient Services at Metropolitan Rehabilitation Center

At Metro Rehab, we know that addiction recovery doesn’t always require inpatient services, and we also know that even if it does, the recovery process is not complete once you are discharged. For this reason, we offer a wide range of outpatient rehab services to support your total recovery, prevent and treat relapse, and help in times of crisis. Our outpatient services include access to individual and group counseling, medication treatments, and ongoing support and monitoring, including urinalysis.

Substance Abuse and Addiction Rehabilitation

We offer full substance abuse and addiction rehab services on an outpatient basis for those who do not require continual 24-hour support to beat their addiction. Whether you need detox and counseling services or support several hours a day, several days a week to overcome your addiction, we can tailor our program to meet the needs of each individual.

Individual and Group Counseling

Individual and group counseling is something that should be an ongoing event, anywhere from a few months to a few years. While we are not a behavioral health treatment center, we do understand that any successful rehab program is not complete without identifying the source of addiction, addressing addictive behaviors, and continuing the process of learning healthy coping mechanisms and coping with living life without a high. Every recovering addict is different and has different needs in terms of support. Whether you need individual counseling, would benefit from group therapy or support group sessions, or both, Metro Rehab can offer you the support you need.

Drug Rehab Medication Treatments

Our methadone treatments are available on a continuing outpatient basis. Whether by referral or as a member of our treatment program, our outpatient methadone treatment services help recovering addicts take on the world and find the strength to resist using. Patients can continue to use our treatment services as long as it is needed, even years later. In addition to methadone, we use several medications to help addicts recover. If you are a recovering addict in Oak Park, contact us to see how our outpatient recovery services can help you.

Continued Support and Monitoring

Metro Rehab offers continued support and monitoring services to help encourage our patients to live a sober life, including outpatient detox and rehab services, urinalysis, crisis intervention, and referrals for community services. If you need help with drug or alcohol addiction recovery, but do not want to do it on an acute inpatient basis, we can help with our outpatient treatment program option. For ongoing care, we offer help with referrals to local community services such as counseling, help with job placement, and family interventions. We understand that successful recovery includes resuming your daily life, we just want to help make sure it is a sober day.

The Benefits of Outpatient Addiction Recovery Services

It is important to note that outpatient rehabilitation services are not right for everyone. Those who suffer a severe addiction, are a danger to themselves, or have been unsuccessful in self-detox attempts need the full 24-hour support to completely detox and begin the healing process before outpatient addiction recovery becomes an option that has a chance at being successful. For those people who face daily temptations — friends, family members, or roommates use — and those who have a history of relapse should also consider inpatient services as a more viable option.

Outpatient addiction rehab services are ideal for:

  • Early-stage addicts.
  • Abuse or addiction to substances that do not require extensive detox.
  • Ongoing treatment for those successfully discharged from inpatient rehab.
  • Addicts who have continued to work or go to school.
  • Community referral patients.
  • Those in treatment programs — AA, NA, 12-step — who need additional support.

Benefits of Outpatient Rehab Services

Maintain the ability to live your life
If you have been able to continue working and going to school, in addition to raising a family, outpatient rehab services can allow you to continue to do so, sober. We offer a variety of services and times for counseling that can fit your schedule. If your day-to-day life contributes to your addiction, your care team may strongly recommend making significant life changes or consider our inpatient program.

Get the support of your friends and family
For some people, the closeness of supportive friends and family are a critical part of recovery. If you have a healthy support network that is willing to help you along your journey to recovery, outpatient rehab services can help you have the best of both worlds — the structure and discipline of a recovery program and the loving embrace of supportive loved ones. If you do not have a healthy support network or your friends and family are also users, your care team may recommend cutting ties with toxic people in your life or recommend an inpatient program to help remove you from the situation and allow for recovery.

Continuity of care
If you have completed an inpatient drug rehabilitation program, using outpatient rehab services helps to maintain the support and efforts of a treatment program, on your own terms. Using outpatient rehab services with the same organization you completed detox and inpatient rehab care with helps build an alliance and support network for you so you feel confident that someone cares and you have a place to turn in time of crisis.

Create a sober community
Addiction recovery programs lead to a community of recovering addicts, which can offer support for each other. When you participate in outpatient rehabilitation treatment, not only do your forge new relationships, but you become a sober member of your community, which strengthens the community as a whole. You may befriend people from your group therapy or support groups and become an advocate for someone else in a time of need — there is strength in numbers.

Keeps you accountable
Just like a workout partner, having a network of supportive people who care and have the resources to ensure you recover helps keep you more accountable for your sobriety. Finding a mentor or a sponsor who can coach you through the recovery process and who checks up on you can be just what you need to avoid temptation. Being accountable to counselors and other support group members can be a supportive way to help you overcome your addiction — you are not alone.

Access to community resources
Drug rehab is not all about detoxing and refraining from addictive substances. Addicts are humans with a wide range of needs and responsibilities. Outpatient rehab centers have access to non-rehab related community resources that can help you live a healthy life. Whether you need on-going therapy, psychological treatment, or you need help with transportation and finding a safe place to live. Being involved in a community rehab program affords you access to programs you may not otherwise have access to.
