What to Expect from Outpatient Services at our Morgantown Location

Outpatient rehab services typically allow people with substance use disorders to receive treatment while they continue to live, work, and take care of other responsibilities at home. Outpatient treatment typically combines elements of both group and individual therapy to promote recovery where you will develop coping skills and strategies for managing your urges to engage in drug or alcohol use as well as any co-occurring mental health disorders, according to the American Society of Addiction Medicine. You may also participate in support groups or one-on-one counseling with others who are also navigating the path toward recovery. Each client’s experience will be unique and individualized.
