Intensive outpatient treatment for substance abuse will generally mean that patients are seen for up to three hours per day, three to five days per week. This is particularly helpful in the prevention of hospitalization and the necessity of inpatient treatment and helps patients to continue to live their day-to-day lives as normally as possible while still receiving high levels of care and treatment. Treatments are conducted in private offices to ensure patient privacy and even when group therapies are used, patient confidentiality is a key area of concern and is addressed accordingly.
