Working While in Treatment: How Outpatient Rehab Helps

June 6, 2024

Making the decision to seek help for addiction is a brave and life-changing choice. However, for many people, the commitment involved in entering inpatient rehab for an extended period can be a barrier to seeking treatment. The fear of losing their job or falling behind in school can prevent people from getting the help they need. 

Outpatient rehab facilities offer an alternative for those who need to balance their recovery with work or school responsibilities. Work or school can be stabilizing forces in recovery, providing structure and a sense of purpose. Treatment can also provide the support needed to navigate these responsibilities while focusing on recovery. 

Recovery Centers of America offers outpatient treatment programs that are designed to meet the needs of patients who are working or attending school while in treatment. Call 1-800-RECOVERY today to get started.

How to Get Back on Track After Relapse

May 23, 2024

If you’ve just had a relapse and you’re researching what to do after relapse, you should feel incredibly proud. You’re not in denial, and you’re not hiding your head in the sand. Addiction is a chronic disease. That means that even when you go to rehab and get your symptoms under control, it’s not cured in the way an infection can be cured with antibiotics.

Substance use disorders occur for a mixture of genetic, environmental, and social reasons. It’s highly complex, but often a compulsion to numb or alter your consciousness comes from deep-rooted trauma.
