4 Benefits of Outpatient Recovery Programs

Outpatient treatment programs like our Comprehensive Addiction Treatment (C.A.T) program allow members to attend structured treatment sessions and return to their own environments each week.

Enhancing spiritual life, becoming educated on addiction, and learning skills to avoid relapse are only a few benefits our CAT program.

Through the group process, you will learn how to work through the chaos in your life and how to set new healthier boundaries with your loved ones.

Here’s how the C.A.T can change the life of an addict.


You will understand the seriousness of the problem.

Throughout the six-week program, you will learn about addiction in many different ways. In the first week, you will dive into the severe effects of addiction.

Understanding the seriousness of the problem is important because it sheds light onto many aspects of yourself and your life. This will allow you to move forward and become committed to your treatment.

You will learn that addiction is a disease.

Substance abuse affects the brain and body and creates other health problems. Over time, an addict’s body and mind physically changes. During the CAT program, people learn how those changes affected them personally.

Not only does learning about the disease help create a foundation for you, but you will also be able to understand cravings/urges and create coping mechanisms to overcome them. You will start to change how you think about yourself, your life and more.

You will rebuild yourself and your relationships.

Over the course of six weeks, you will dissect yourself mentally and emotionally to understand what fueled your addiction and how you can overcome it to improve your well-being. This will, in turn, help you start to rebuild relationships with important people in your life.

You will learn how to cope and manage your emotions.

You will learn how to respond to shame, guilt, and anxiety, manage your emotions, and what you need personally to thrive in recovery.

You will be opened to spirituality in recovery, which means you’ll find a deeper meaning in life. That will help also with your daily life.
