Outpatient Rehab for Fentanyl

Finding the program that fits your addiction treatment needs is imperative in helping you start your recovery off on the right foot. There are various treatment programs available and they differ in a number of ways, such as in intensity or length, what specialized programs they may offer, what types of co-occurring conditions they treat, and if they can provide different types of support as a person reestablishes a life without substance use.1

Read on to learn more about outpatient addiction treatment programs for fentanyl, and how this level of care may fit into your recovery journey.

Outpatient Fentanyl Rehab Programs

Outpatient rehab programs can be an excellent option for people who are looking to recover from fentanyl addiction, however it is important to be aware of what this level of care can and cannot offer to ensure that the appropriate treatment decision is being made.

Standard outpatient treatment allows a person to live at home and attend work or school while still being able to receive professional addiction treatment that meets their current needs. While a patient’s level of involvement in an outpatient program may vary in terms of length and intensity, most outpatient programs usually have patients attend 1-2 days of treatment per week for a few hours at a time.

Outpatient fentanyl addiction treatment is not as intensive as other levels of care, such as inpatient treatment or partial hospitalization programs, which is why it is often viewed as a “step-down” form of care for some people recovering from fentanyl addiction. Outpatient rehab is typically most beneficial for patients who have:1,2

  • Consistent employment.
  • Strong social support for recovery (such as family or friends).
  • Mild to moderate substance use disorders (as a starting point of care).
  • Completed more intensive treatment and need continuing care.
  • Do not require detox services.

What to Expect in Outpatient Rehab for Fentanyl

While they do share several similarities, outpatient programs can differ in a variety of ways, including in terms of schedules and the therapeutic modalities they offer. Therefore, you can choose an outpatient fentanyl rehab program that meets both your therapeutic and logistical needs best.

During your treatment, you can expect to spend time participating in different forms of evidence-based therapy. Some of the most common of these therapies used in outpatient addiction treatment for fentanyl include:3

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
  • Motivational interviewing (MI).
  • Contingency management (CM).
  • Individual therapy.
  • Group counseling.

Much of the time you spend at the facility will likely be in group settings, where you will engage in some of these therapies, receive education about substance misuse and addiction, and work on developing relapse prevention skills. You may also receive assistance with medication management. As you continue through the program, your care team can help make adjustments to your personalized plan so that you can keep evolving in your recovery.
