Outpatient addiction treatment at our Chelsea clinic in New York City is offered weekdays and weeknights, with convenient afternoon and evening sessions available: Monday–Thursday, 1–4 p.m. Monday–Thursday, 6–9 p.m. Extended Outpatient Treatment As you progress through outpatient drug or alcohol rehab at Hazelden and begin implementing newly gained recovery principles and practices into your daily life, you will attend treatment sessions less frequently while transitioning into our extended outpatient level of care. Extended care is designed to give you more opportunities to solidify your abstinence by building healthy new routines, developing your recovery support network, identifying relapse triggers and practicing relapse prevention skills. In counselor-facilitated extended care group sessions, you will continue to discover what it takes to restore your sense of trust, community, hope, and—most of all—belief in yourself. You will gradually develop independence from treatment programming as you appreciate the importance of prioritizing your recovery on a daily basis. Our extended outpatient treatment groups meet conveniently on weeknights and afternoons, as follows: Monday: 6–7:30 p.m. Tuesday: 1–2:30 p.m. or 6–7:30 p.m. Wednesday: 6–7:30 p.m. Thursday: 2:30–4 p.m. or 6–7:30 p.m. Family Support Addiction affects everyone in the family. And every family member needs help in their own right to understand the disease of addiction and to work through the chaos and pain it causes. We know when families start to understand the disease of addiction they can start their own healing. We offer a free, weekly workshop for families at our Tribeca treatment center every Tuesday from 5:45–7 p.m. The workshops are open to the public and people are welcome to attend as often as they would like. These workshops provide a safe, nonjudgmental place for families faced with addiction to: Learn about the disease nature of addiction Understand the importance of taking responsibility for their own happiness and well-being Identify ways to open the lines of communication and set healthy boundaries In Chelsea, we offer family members of patients in our outpatient programs a free, family support group. Groups are offered every Wednesday from 6:15-7:45 p.m. Recovery Management Addiction is a chronic disease that has no cure, but there are effective solutions and there is hope. Most people who go to treatment programs not only stop using drugs, they also improve their occupational, social and psychological functioning. Much like learning to manage other chronic conditions such as diabetes or heart disease, recovery from addiction involves learning to live differently—replacing what had been a drug-using lifestyle with healthy new routines, activities and interests. Scientific research identifies ongoing involvement in recovery-related activities as the best predictor of long-term sobriety. Active engagement is of utmost importance during the first 18 months of recovery when risk of relapse is most intense. Participating in a Twelve Step or other mutual-help program, staying connected with your recovery community, and pursuing new recreational and creative interests are all important ways to sustain and strengthen your sobriety. The Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation offers a wide range of in-person, online and mobile recovery support resources and services to help you thrive in recovery over the long haul. These support options include web/phone-based recovery coaching, monitoring and accountability services, family education and guidance, Twelve Step recovery enrichment retreats and workshops, and many more helpful resources. In addition, Hazelden hosts a number of Twelve Step meetings at our Chelsea, New York treatment center.
