Severe addictions to substances like heroin and oxycodone typically require inpatient treatment programs to help manage withdrawal and detoxification. In an inpatient setting, the client lives at the treatment facility and receives around-the-clock care, treatment, and supervision. But, mild substance abuse and mental health disorders can often be treated successfully with outpatient treatment programs.
The most common outpatient treatment paths include:
At Valley Behavioral Health, we understand that sometimes growth and rehabilitation cannot be achieved by stopping day-to-day activities. In our intensive outpatient rehabilitation program, we evaluate each client, stabilize their condition, and provide a treatment designed to lead a life independent of our programs.

Outpatient treatment offers substance abuse and mental health treatment sessions on a flexible schedule.
This allows patients to schedule their treatment around their lives — not schedule their lives around their treatment. Outpatient treatment also allows the client to remain in the “real world” during the entire course of their treatment and deal with real-life triggers as they happen while having a team of counselors to help teach them proper coping skills and behaviors.
A large part of outpatient treatment consists of group therapy where participants focus on learning coping mechanisms, recognizing their triggers. They also feel supported by a community of peers who know exactly what they’re going through. Group therapy reduces isolation and gives clients a front-row seat to the recovery of other people like them.
What’s more, humans base a lot of their choices on what they experience in groups and on what the people around them are doing. While this can lead to deviant behavior (especially during adolescence), joining a group of positive and supportive people can greatly help others make strides towards living a sober and meaningful life.
At Valley Behavioral Health, our outpatient services provide psychotherapy, medication management, and case management services to help our clients obtain relief and stabilize their symptoms. Our goal is to help our clients reach their treatment goals while living independently in the community and avoiding high levels of care such as residential and hospitalization. Outpatient treatment is something we specialize in, and we have been offering it since our agency opened in 1987.

Because of our individualized approach to treatment, each client’s path looks different and has its own unique goals. But, here’s a general idea of what to expect from outpatient treatment at Valley Behavioral Health.
The ASAM Criteria describes treatment as a continuum that is marked by four broad levels of service and an early intervention level. These care levels provide a standard classification framework for describing the continuum of recovery-oriented addiction services.
ASAM allows clinicians to conduct a multidimensional assessment that explores the patient’s individual risks and needs, in addition to their strengths, skills, and resources. The ASAM takes the information and provides clinicians with a recommended ASAM Level of Care. The intensity of the treatment services matches the corresponding ASAM score to provide the most effective care possible.
Outpatient treatment is ASAM Level 1. This level of care typically consists of less than nine hours of service per week for adults, and less than six hours per week for teens.
Outpatient rehab is usually an ideal treatment option for people with mild to moderate addictions or disorders.
