If you’re struggling with drug addiction but don’t have the time or money to go to a residential treatment facility, our program for outpatient detox in Delray Beach may be the answer. Outpatient detox provides the treatment you need to get off drugs at a lower cost, and with a less intensive time commitment, than inpatient treatment at a residential facility.
The Advantages of Outpatient Detox in Delray Beach
If you’re trying to choose between our Delray Beach outpatient detox program and a residential treatment program, you’re probably wondering what the advantages of outpatient treatment really are. One clear advantage of outpatient detox is the greatly reduced cost – a study by Open Minds Consulting in February 2011 found that ten weeks of outpatient rehab costs just $6,863 on average at treatment centers around the country, while 28 days – just four weeks! – of inpatient rehab cost $19,067 on average at rehabs around the country. It doesn’t take a mathematician to notice what a huge difference that is!
Our program for outpatient drug detox in Delray Beach also has some other undeniable advantages. You’ll be able to remain at home with your family – there’s no need to worry about missing important occasions with the kids or explaining your absence to them. Nor will you have to make up an excuse to explain your absence to friends, neighbors, co-workers or relatives.
When you choose our outpatient drug detox program in Delray Beach, you’ll be able to keep going to work or school. You won’t have to take a medical leave of absence to go away for residential rehab for weeks or months. Our flexible schedule allows you to seek treatment whenever it’s convenient for you.
You can also extend your treatment as long as you need to in order to meet your goals when you choose to enroll in our Delray Beach outpatient detox program. Though the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 entitles you to up to 12 weeks of medical leave per calendar year in order to seek addiction treatment at a residential rehab, will this be enough? You don’t know until you try. If it’s not enough, what will you do – forego getting treatment until another calendar year passes by, and take the chance of relapse and a general worsening of your condition? Our program for outpatient detox in Delray Beach lets you continue to get uninterrupted treatment for as long as you need it.
