The Benefits of Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient Rehab is a necessary part of the treatment continuum for someone discharging from a Residential Facility. It can also be the starting point for those who cannot leave the commitments of work, family, or school to attend a 30-day Inpatient Program.
Our programs, such as Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) provide structured Clinical Support, but give individuals the necessary skills, opportunities for practical application, and the time needed to treat the underlying causes of one’s addiction.

90% of individuals needing Substance Abuse Treatment do not seek help.* As often as we work with clients who have completed a 30-day Residential Program, we see clients who are unable to leave behind work, home, school, or other obligations for such a period of time.

Key Takeaway: Outpatient Rehab reduces barriers to Treatment and offers more people the ability to seek help.

*O’Reilly, Kevin B. “90% Who Need Substance Abuse Treatment Don’t Get It.” American Medical Association, 22 Oct. 2019.


Five times more individuals are likely to succeed long-term, having already achieved two years of sobriety.* Our Outpatient Programs give individuals the necessary skills, ability for practical application, and accountability needed for sustained recovery.

Key Takeaway: Substance Abuse and Co-occurring Mental Health Disorders are complex and cannot be treated quickly or symptomatically.

The Lighthouse Treatment Philosophy

Extended Treatment programs give individuals the accountability, structure, and real-world applications that are necessary for long-term success. For this reason, Lighthouse focuses solely on long-term treatment and has built each subset of our program utilizing a holistic approach.


Our programming balances a variety of clinical modalities and a focus on life-skills training, giving clients the insight, experience, tools, and confidence they need to lead rewarding and independent lives.


Recovery is a process that requires real change, starting with an intensive and often uncomfortable confrontation with reality. We’ve worked to guide hundreds of clients and their families through this transformative experience.


Each individual’s circumstance is entirely unique, as are the drivers behind one’s addiction. Our staff-to-client ratio, program structure, and holistic approach allows us to work on a customizable basis with each client.


It’s no secret people struggle in recovery and often return to treatment multiple times. Nearly all cited studies show dramatically increased success rates when Inpatient Treatment is followed up with aftercare programming.

We adhere to - and surpass - the Treatment Industry's highest standards.
