Frequently Asked Questions

What does outpatient addiction treatment entail?
Outpatient rehab at River Oaks is a form of addiction treatment in which patients visit the facility multiple times a week for several hours or more of treatment which includes evidence-based forms of behavioral therapy, psychoeducation, and peer support.1,2,3 Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) may be used when necessary to treat persistent cravings and withdrawal symptoms.13
What’s the difference between inpatient and outpatient rehab for addiction?
Both inpatient and outpatient rehab use many of the same evidence-based forms of treatment; however, inpatient care requires you to stay at the facility 24/7 to participate in all-day programming, which may include groups, meetings, and classes as well as recreational activities and personal time for reflection.3
What’s the difference between standard outpatient, IOP, and PHP for addiction treatment?
Outpatient treatment has various forms. The main difference between these types of treatment is their time-intensiveness:

  • Standard outpatient care may only involve 1 or 2 outpatient visits per week (or only as often as needed).
  • Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) provide a minimum of 3 days of treatment per week for at least 3 hours a session.
  • The partial hospitalization program (PHP) at River Oaks involves treatment 5 days a week in 6-hour session blocks.2,14
