Outpatient Chemical Dependency Treatment Program

Outpatient Chemical Dependency Treatment Program

Outpatient Treatment for Substance Abuse

Outpatient care is individualized, planned just for you. Psychiatrists, licensed therapists and registered nurses will all work together on your care team. You’ll see a psychiatrist weekly to help you manage medications and make real progress. Our comprehensive discharge planning will smooth your path to the next level of care.

Outpatient treatment programs at El Paso Behavioral Health System offer a level of care for patients in need of an intensive, structured, daily therapeutic environment without the 24-hour care of inpatient treatment. Our specialty chemical dependency outpatient programs help patients progress in their recovery after an inpatient stay, or prevent the initial need for inpatient treatment. 

Our outpatient chemical dependency programs promote physical, social, cognitive, behavioral, and emotional development in patients struggling with substance use disorder or co-occurring disorders. Patients receive a combination of group counseling, family, and individual therapy, a psychiatric evaluation, medication management, and treatment planning.

For people who want to overcome the problems alcohol or other drugs are causing in their lives, we offer an evidence-based 12-step model. We focus on identifying, developing and practicing lifestyle changes necessary for staying free of drugs and alcohol. We believe abstinence from substances will put the disease in remission, and dedication to a strong program will provide protection from relapse.
