There are ways to receive treatment for addiction that aren’t as intensive as residential rehab. If you can’t commit to a residential stay due to personal or professional commitments, outpatient treatment programs may better suit you. Outpatient programs work well if you have a strong support network and don’t require the round-the-clock care that inpatient options provide.

What Is Outpatient Therapy?
Outpatient therapy is a treatment structure for addiction and other mental and behavioural health concerns without the need for a residential setting. The programmes offered are often similar to inpatient programs which are characterised by individual therapy, group work, and 12-step meetings, but without the need to leave your home for weeks at a time. Outpatient treatment can be longer than inpatient treatment as the therapeutic sessions are spread over more days.
The benefits of outpatient treatment include you being able to continue your family and working life, scheduling your sessions around existing commitments, being a more affordable alternative to inpatient care, and the flexibility to alter the intensity of treatment depending on your needs.
Outpatient Rehab at Catch Recovery
When you are attending an outpatient addiction rehab program at CATCH Recovery, you can expect to continue to work and live your life normally. Outpatient treatment is an ideal way to ensure you receive the right therapeutic tools to help you recover from addiction and prevent relapse.
Our outpatient treatment program is based on the 12-step philosophy and includes individual counselling and support groups which you may attend once or several times a week depending on your treatment plan. Before treatment commences our team will carry out a CATCH Recovery assessment with you to evaluate your current condition and medical history and create a personal program of care.
Our therapists work with different therapeutic modalities such as trauma-based therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), or cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Our assessment will help decipher which therapies will work best for you.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a personalized ‘talking therapy’ that changes negative thoughts, attitudes and behaviors that may be a block to finding recovery from addiction. CBT helps clients identify triggers that could lead to relapse, and change responses to triggers and therefore the outcome. CBT also helps clients learn how to manage difficult feelings and address situations more positively and assertively.
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
DBT was developed to treat the symptoms of borderline personality disorder and emotional regulation disorder such as suicidal ideation and depression. DBT consists of four elements – core mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotional regulation, and distress tolerance.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is an individual therapy that views the distressing symptoms of PTSD as a result of memories being inadequately processed. EMDR therapy focuses directly on these memories to change the way they are stored in the brain through eye movements, thus reducing and eliminating problematic symptoms.
Group therapy enhances self-awareness and insight through the shared experiences and openness of those in a group. Clients work together, empathise, and support each other. The changes seen in peers over time can inspire hope. Group therapy is facilitated by a trained and experienced therapist and is usually an integral part of a treatment program.
The 12-step philosophy is an abstinence-based approach to recovery, helping clients to find freedom from addictions, manage emotions and maintain abstinence. Clients are encouraged to attend 12-step meetings as part of their treatment to build a community of supportive individuals who have direct experience of struggling with addiction and finding freedom. This provides individuals with a support network on leaving treatment and hope for a future free from addiction.
Cost of Outpatient Treatment at Catch Recovery
Outpatient care costs less than inpatient care, as it is not intended for people with complex addictions and physical or psychological complications. Outpatient care does not include 24/7 monitoring by nurses, psychiatrists, medical programmes, medical detoxification, accommodation, food, and other facilities. Our outpatient program is also much less intensive; rather than a full day of therapeutic activities, you can fit therapy sessions and groups around your daily life.
Online Rehab at Catch Recovery
Online rehab is an effective way to benefit from our addiction treatment program without needing to leave your home or join the group-based sessions that are part of our outpatient programme. Our flexible, confidential, and research-informed online therapy offering is a great option if you think you might be struggling with addiction but aren’t able to commit to a traditional inpatient stay.
