No matter how crazy going to drug rehab seems, consider this: It’s seriously more insane to keep taking a hit every day as your life burns down around you. Getting clean has never been easier, and there really are no more excuses. With outpatient drug rehab in Los Angeles, you can get treatment for your addiction when, where, and how it works for you. Here’s how.
Do I Need Outpatient Drug Rehab?
Our answer to this question is generally the same: If you’re asking yourself if you need rehab, the answer is probably yes. People who “drink normally” or “party on the weekends” don’t stay up late googling for signs that they need help. The real question you’re asking yourself in this case is whether you’re ready to take action.
And to that question, we say: How much more pain are you willing to take? You’re the only one who gets to decide when you stop the constant stream of shame, humiliation, desperation, and general shittiness that addiction brings. If your substance abuse is affecting your work, relationships, health, finances, or happiness, then it’s time to get help. Even if you just think your life could be better without drugs, you’re probably right.
Or, give our team a call and tell us what your life looks like. We’ve seen enough people hit rock bottom to let you know if it’s time to call it quits. Plus, we’ve been there ourselves, too.
What Happens In Outpatient Drug Rehab?
Outpatient drug rehab allows you to get treatment for your addiction while staying overnight at your own home. In some cases, you can choose to schedule your outpatient program at night, allowing you to work during the day. You can even get telehealth outpatient drug addiction treatment if you’re not up for leaving the house.
Besides that, the format of outpatient drug rehab – also known as intensive outpatient programs, partial hospitalization programs, or outpatient programs – is similar to traditional “rehab.” That means a mix of one-on-one counseling, therapy, group therapy, and other modalities to help you heal the trauma and mental health issues underlying your substance abuse.
Does Insurance Cover Outpatient Drug Rehab?
Outpatient drug rehab is covered by insurance more frequently than residential treatment, in some cases. Your insurance provider might even want you to try outpatient programming first before “stepping up” to residential if you need it. If you’re not sure what your insurance covers, just give us a call and we can run the numbers for you, so there won’t be any surprises.

Getting Clean & Sober at Home
Today, more than 75% of hospitals and healthcare providers offer access to telehealth treatment, with 29 states having gone so far as to enact telehealth parity laws, which force insurance companies to reimburse patients for telehealth at the same rates as they would for in-person treatment.
If you’ve been thinking about getting clean and sober, or if you’ve been wanting to work on and strengthen the recovery you already have, it’s never been easier to do it through telehealth.
