Outpatient Drug Treatment and Alcohol Rehab

At the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, you have options to begin your recovery from alcohol and drugs.

A plan built for you.

With addiction, every person's situation is different. At the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, our clinicians take into consideration physical and mental health, work history, family relationships, substance use, gender, and many other variables. Understanding these differences is important in developing the best possible plan to help you get well and stay well.

You will have a counselor at your side throughout your treatment and recovery experience. This personalized approach ensures your care plan addresses your specific needs day to day, week to week, and month to month. You will work closely with your counselor to determine the sessions you will participate in each week based on clinical and behavioral milestones that support your early and sustained recovery.

Outpatient program options include:

  • Day Treatment: Day Treatment provides the highest level of outpatient addiction treatment of the outpatient options. Hours and program days vary by location but typical programming is offered 5 days a week for 6 hours a day. Many locations offer structured recovery housing on-site.

  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): Typically programming is 4 days a week for 3 hours a day.  IOP groups are offered at various times of the day to accommodate busy schedules.

  • Extended Outpatient:  As your treatment progresses, you may step down to fewer days of programming.  The number of days you attend will depend on your treatment progress.

  • Continuing Care Groups: Continuing care groups are typically one day a week. Many are gender-specific or focused on a particular topic or age group.
