Pacific Interventions Outpatient Alcohol Rehab Center patient and doctor talking with clientoutpatient alcohol rehab center is an effective treatment alternative to an inpatient program. Sometimes people just can’t walk away from their lives and enter an inpatient rehab center. Therefore, being able to access a quality outpatient drug rehab near you is exactly what we can provide.  For example, the responsibilities to children or work make it impossible to go away for an extended period of time. However, there is still a very real need to treat this condition before it progresses any further. This is exactly why we created our outpatient rehab program.  Being able to set dates and times that serve you in your area relieves you of many pressures that create stress in an already stressful time.

We bring treatment as near as possible to you

You can attend your outpatient counselling sessions in our Vancouver office.

However, there is also the option of having the counselling session in the comfort and convenience of your own home or office.

Overcoming the barriers created by the disease of addiction are hard enough, so one of our goals with this program is to make it as easy as possible to access treatment. This convenient outpatient program may be the exact alternative treatment approach you or your loved one has been looking for.

By going to an inpatient addiction treatment center you will stabilize in a foreign environment. This means that once you leave the safety and security of the treatment center and return home, you will destabilize very quickly. In the outpatient program we will create a treatment strategy aimed to build stabilized recovery in your own home. Because once you are stabilized in your own environment the post-treatment destabilization factor is minimized. Taking every opportunity to lessen the impact of this disease makes the recovery process much easier to implement and maintain.

This outpatient service will be tailored directly to your needs.

Through the process of multidimensional analysis your clinician will identify the underlying physical and psychological disturbances that are leading to the alcohol or drug abuse. Once these underlying disturbances are identified the clinician will work one-on-one with you to develop a treatment plan. The treatment plan will outline the therapeutic direction as well as which therapies will be utilized. We primarily focus on the use of evidence-based therapies as they show the best clinical results. However, we will utilize the best approach for any given individual. Each person that enters our outpatient rehab is unique and therefore the approach is personally customized.

“An essential aspect of this program is the fact that our clients can maintain the functional parts of their lives while at the same time accessing the treatment they need to recover.”

Addiction Medicine and Withdrawal Management

Just as the inpatient addiction treatment program will address withdrawal management,

so too will the outpatient alcohol rehab center.

Depending on the amount of alcohol and/or drugs being used it is critical to have medical support during the withdrawal phase. Withdrawal can be incredibly dangerous to manage on your own. For this reason we ensure that there is a safe withdrawal management plan in place. Addiction medicine can also provide the option of medication-assisted therapies, such as Disulfiram, and Naltrexone for alcohol use, and Suboxone or Sublocade for opioid use. Medication-assisted therapy is not for everyone. However, in the early stages of recovery, it can go a long way towards overcoming the urges and cravings associated with substance abuse. Allowing you the opportunity to comfortably focus your attention on the other therapeutic aspects of the outpatient rehab program.

Pacific Interventions also provides urinalysis and breathalyzer testing randomly or upon request throughout the outpatient program. Having this testing done can alleviate the fears and concerns the family members may be experiencing. The resulting transparency can have a huge impact on restoring trust in strained relationships. In the beginning of the recovery process it is always important to be focused on establishing trust. However, in recovery trust is earned through actions not just words. Therefore, the definitive urinalysis and breathalyzer testing results make it clear that your loved one is on the right track.

Outpatient Alcohol Rehab Center Counselling Staff

Our certified addiction counsellors have a wealth of knowledge and experience in developing practical solutions to the underlying physical and psychological challenges you’ll face in early recovery. The addiction counsellor’s role is to assist you in identifying and resolving intrusive cognitive patterns and behavior. In the outpatient alcohol rehab center we utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other treatment modalities as an essential part of the program. With these therapies, you will learn to manage not only your triggers, urges, and cravings for alcohol or drugs, but you’ll also be able to take charge of your psychological well-being. Empowered with these copying strategies you will reduce stress and feel more comfortable in your recovery.

The addiction counsellor will also assist you in creating a balanced lifestyle. A lifestyle that includes connecting to therapeutic community-based organizations such as SMART Recovery, 12 Step Fellowships, and healthy recreation communities like gyms, yoga, sports, etc. In addition we will look to ensure the clients in the outpatient rehab program are getting a balanced nutritional intake. As we know food play a huge role in our overall wellness, but it is even more important to those who are recovering from months of years of alcohol or drug abuse.

The addiction counsellor is the one who helps put the action into action orientated therapy

Action orientated therapy goes beyond simply theorizing or discussing a certain situation a client is dealing with. The counsellor actually steps in the support the client as they start to implement these lifestyle changes. For example, in a typical session a client may discuss with their counsellor a difficulty they are having with body image.

This difficulty has manifested into a significant level of fear going to exercise at a gym. As a result the client becomes stuck in this pattern. Just discussing solutions in the safety of the office and then encouraging the client to overcome their fear by going to the gym can often not be enough resolve this challenge. In the action oriented therapy model the clinician would actually attend the gym with this client.

Supporting the client as they walk through the most difficult part of the fear and begin to develop self-confidence. Having this support at that critical time can do a lot to help the client end the pattern of procrastination and fear that has stopped them from moving forward with improving the quality of their life.

This example outlines how an addiction counsellor to do much more than just theorize about solution solving problems. Assisting a client while taking action steps can make a big impact on their success in the outpatient program.

Our Outpatient Alcohol Rehab Center Employs Highly Qualified and Experienced Addiction Counsellors

Once the individual has been physically stabilized. The outpatient alcohol rehab center will shift its attention to the underlying factors fueling the addiction.

Along with addiction comes many deep-rooted psychological disturbances; inevitably, these disturbances lead to the destructive patterns of alcohol and/or drug abuse, so they must be addressed. These disturbances can stem from a variety of causes, such as trauma, stress, abuse, grief, despair, depression or anxiety. Furthermore, these types of challenges require a specialized level of skill and personal one-on-one care to overcome. That is precisely where the counsellors, Jeffrey Norell and Vince Pirozzi come in. Their ability to gently guide you through a process of discovery and healing allows for the decompression of built-up psychological pressure. The release of this immense emotional pressure often opens life up to new possibilities and a sense of hope for the future. Addiction tears people down so it is important that recovery builds people up, and this is one of the primary focuses of the counsellor at this phase of treatment.

Freedom from addiction is possible when you receive the proper care.
