Most often the client will begin their recovery process in an outpatient setting. If a client experiences difficulty maintaining sobriety while in treatment in an outpatient setting, they will be referred to a higher level of substance abuse care, but many clients can recover by receiving outpatient treatment.
Seafield’s outpatient treatment programs are located at five locations throughout Long Island and are OASAS Licensed and JCAHO Accredited. These programs have helped patients from all over New York, NY.
Clients will be referred to outpatient treatment from a drug or alcohol detox or an inpatient drug rehab to continue their recovery process. The bulk of the work to recover takes place during the outpatient treatment experience. If someone leaves a detox or an inpatient rehab without continuing treatment, their chances for success decrease significantly.
The outpatient treatment process begins with a thorough evaluation leading to one of two levels of treatment: Intensive or Clinic.
Intensive meets two/three hours per session up to five times per week. Frequency and duration will be determined by the treatment team (clinical staff and referring agency). During the intensive component, concrete, specific and measurable goals are identified and monitored. Upon completing, the client will be transferred to clinic level of care.
