If you’re searching for alcohol or drug addiction treatment in Las Vegas consider Landmark Recovery’s intensive outpatient program. Outpatient rehab, also called outpatient treatment, is a program designed to help manage substance use disorder once a person has fully withdrawn from all substances. It allows individuals to receive treatment outside the walls of a rehab center. Patients must commit to attending therapy and counseling sessions, continue drug testing and have a network in place to support their recovery.
Intensive outpatient treatment could be a good solution for individuals in the early stages of addiction or who present mild substance use disorder symptoms and would benefit from counseling and therapy. The main determination in choosing between inpatient or outpatient rehab is whether you can avoid triggers and temptations that could lead to a relapse.
Landmark Recovery of Las Vegas is one of the most affordable addiction treatment centers in Nevada. Our outpatient program includes structured sessions with a licensed therapist and group counseling. Admission into Landmark’s intensive outpatient program requires the approval of our medical director or designee.
Participants in our outpatient treatment program choose their own housing rather than staying at our addiction treatment center. This makes it possible for an individual to remain in their community, continue working and even socializing with friends and family, as long as they are able to avoid or successfully navigate situations that might tempt them to use drugs or alcohol again.
Once admitted into Landmark’s intensive outpatient program, a patient receives at least three hours of structured programing, at least three days each week. Patients must also meet with a licensed therapist for a total of six hours per week. At least one of these hours will be during a one-on-one session with the therapist.
Outpatient rehab works best for individuals who have a mild to moderate addiction, strong support from family and friends, reliable transportation and low risk of withdrawal or relapse. They must make a commitment to attend therapy and counseling sessions for alcoholism and substance abuse at various times throughout the week. Medication-assisted treatment is sometimes used during outpatient rehab as well. This can help establish continued accountability and provide resources for individuals in treatment while allowing them the ability to continue with their daily lives.
Outpatient rehab is used for individuals who are in the early stages of addiction, have a milder form of addiction or have successfully completed a period of inpatient treatment and may no longer need an extended stay at a rehab center. It is also a great choice for individuals who may not have the ability to take time off of work, who may not have access to childcare, who may be a caretaker for another loved one and don’t have access to specialized care for them for an extended period of time.
It is also suggested by clinical professionals for individuals who are newly sober and/or in need of continuing support in their recovery journey. The flexibility of an outpatient rehab program allows for patients to continue their responsibilities in their daily lives while still being held accountable for treating their addiction. There are strict rules associated with outpatient rehab, such as mandatory therapy sessions and usually drug testing. Failing a drug test typically results in the recommendation for inpatient treatment.
The length of addiction treatment varies from person to person and depends on several factors. This includes what substance a person has used and for how long. Landmark Recovery of Las Vegas’s outpatient treatment is designed as an eight-week program, but patients may be discharged earlier if they make exceptional progress and/or no longer meet the requirements of medical necessity as defined by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM).
In many ways recovery treatment for someone with a substance use disorder never ends. Landmark Recovery is committed to staying engaged with our patients throughout their recovery and offering support wherever they are. Alumni from our residential and partial-hospitalization programs can attend intensive outpatient treatment sessions once a week, for free. This provides an additional resource for our patients who are newly sober, or who just want continued support.

The main difference between inpatient rehab and outpatient rehab is that outpatient treatment does not require an individual to check themselves into an addiction treatment center for an extended stay, as inpatient rehab requires. An outpatient program is less intense than inpatient rehab and is often executed through regular counseling sessions and sometimes, medication. Inpatient rehab offers on average, one month of isolation from the outside world with a structured daily routine, while outpatient rehab allows the patient to continue their normal lives. Outpatient rehab is often used to treat milder forms of addiction.
