When you’re struggling with an active addiction to any type of substance, day-to-day life can be difficult if not impossible. While you’re trying to see to your everyday responsibilities, your addiction sets in and draws you away from completing these important tasks. As a result, you begin to slowly but surely lose focus and lose control of everything around you. You may come to realize that you have put a job that you once cared about in jeopardy and that the relationships with friends and family members have been destroyed. 

Although you feel like you are in a hopeless and helpless position, the team at The Source Treatment Center is here to provide support, resources, and guidance to any Portsmouth resident who has come to a point in their life where they recognize that they need assistance in working through their addiction. 

Can I Work During Outpatient Rehab? 

One of the misconceptions when it comes to any rehab is that a person will be unable to work or go to school during the time that they are in treatment. When you decide to commit to an outpatient program, our staff can help you build and develop a recovery plan around your work schedule. We will do everything that we can to ensure that your job is never sacrificed as a result of your addiction journey. Keep in mind that while you do not have to disclose to your employer that you are coming to The Source for treatment, if you would like help in addressing this personal topic with him or her, let us know and your case manager can speak with you in more detail. 

If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, call The Source today.  Our treatment specialists are available 24/7 to discuss your options and help you find the perfect solution (800) 204-0418.


What is Outpatient Drug Rehab Like? 

One of the most common questions that our drug rehab in Portsmouth receives revolves around what outpatient drug treatment will be like. The answer is this question is really dependent on the type of outpatient program you decide to work through. At The Source, we offer these outpatient treatment options. 

Intensive Outpatient Program 

Many clients decide to use an intensive outpatient program treatment plan as a step down after a partial hospitalization program. There are many other clients that decide to take advantage of this treatment plan straight away. Whereas a partial hospitalization program requires a weekly commitment of 25 hours in therapy, an intensive outpatient program only requires nine. While clients from all walks of life can benefit from an intensive outpatient program, this type of treatment plan may work well for a client that is working or going to school part-time. 

General Outpatient Program 

A general outpatient program is the most flexible treatment plan. Clients that commit to this type of program will need to spend a minimum of four hours in treatment each week. Although there is a specific focus for relapse prevention in every treatment program, this will be particularly true when it comes to a general outpatient program client because he or she will be faced with more everyday temptations. 

Keep in mind that when you reach out to our intake team, we will be able to provide you with more specific information regarding each treatment option. 

What to Expect During Outpatient Rehab 

An intensive outpatient program or a general outpatient program are two of the most flexible treatment options that we offer at our Fort Lauderdale facility. During your time in treatment, you can expect to participate in the following forms of therapy: 

Individual Therapy 

Individual therapy can help you to address the issues that you have had with substance abuse in a more personalized setting. Although we will always recommend that you participate in group therapy as often as possible, it’s understandable that there may be certain events in your life that you simply don’t feel comfortable talking about in that type of setting. One-on-one therapy will help you to have a personal interaction with an addiction therapist who can help you to work through the struggles. During these sessions, we will also assess how you’re progressing in your recovery journey. 

Group Therapy 

Group therapy and 12-step meetings share a lot of similarities. Group therapy will give you the opportunity to connect with others that are working through their own form of treatment through sharing different experiences connected to addiction, sobriety, and recovery. These sessions are guided by addiction counselors. You will be encouraged to both share your experiences and listen to others so that you can grow in your own recovery. 

Trauma-Based Therapy 

Did you know that there is a direct connection between trauma and the development of addiction? If certain traumas in your life are not addressed when they take place, you are more likely to fall into a pattern of addiction because you psychologically haven’t processed the trauma. Trauma-based therapy can help you to recover from these events in a way that will not re-traumatize you and help you to focus on the future.

Family Therapy 

If your family has been torn apart by addiction, then you are not alone. Every day countless family relationships struggle because a loved one is suffering from addiction. Family therapy can help you to mend these relationships in a healthy way. You may come to find that these renewed relationships will help you along in your recovery journey. 

Although actively taking part in therapy may feel awkward or uncomfortable at times, it’s a critical aspect of your overall recovery because it will allow you to get to the root cause of your addiction.
