Benefits of Outpatient Addiction Treatment

The struggles of addiction can be challenging, but sometimes it may seem even more challenging to seek treatment. The sudden lifestyle change, being away from friends and family, and having to give up your job in order to enter a live-in rehabilitation facility are all significant factors that deter many from seeking help. Outpatient treatment programs are a highly effective method of recovery that don’t require you to significantly alter your life. If you’re a resident of Sherman Oaks or any other part of Los Angeles County, Twin Town’s outpatient treatment programs can help you or someone you love start on the path to recovery.


No matter how motivated someone is to seek help, some people simply may not be able to afford it. Live-in addiction treatment facilities can be extremely expensive due to the cost of lodging and full-time care, and it may not be covered in full by insurance. If finances are a major factor for you, outpatient addiction treatment is an excellent solution. Twin Town is generally covered by insurance, our costs are lower than live-in facilities, and the flexibility of outpatient programs allows you to continue working while seeking treatment.


It’s not realistic for many to leave their family, friends, and job for several weeks, especially if they don’t want to share the reason for their departure with others. Addiction treatment is an extremely personal experience, so it’s understandable that some may not want to disclose to their employer that they’re seeking drug or alcohol addiction treatment. Outpatient treatment programs are extremely flexible, working with your schedule to offer effective treatment courses outside of work or school hours, so you can have the best of both worlds.

Immediate Results

Outpatient treatment programs demand more self-discipline from their patients since you aren’t sheltered from negative influencing factors in the same way you are at a residential treatment facility. However, they also have incredible benefits, as it allows you to implement healthy coping mechanisms and tools for sobriety right away. Being able to see the results of your treatment in real-time is a motivating factor for many patients, and it helps ensure long-term success and sobriety, even after leaving our alcohol addiction treatment course.
