Outpatient Rehab Los Angeles

Outpatient Rehab Los Angeles


An outpatient addiction treatment program is one of several ideal rehab options for people seeking addiction treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. However, they also need the flexibility of a treatment program to fit their busy schedules. At Harmony Place, our treatment centers focus on various treatment options.

Exceptional Outpatient Treatment for Addiction near Los Angeles

Just down the street from our residential property, our Los Angeles outpatient rehab treatment facility is home to the same quality of personalized care offered in our residential program. Our treatment team works with clients to remain focused on lasting recovery as they take their first steps toward navigating a sober life outside residential treatment.

Or maybe your addiction isn’t severe enough to necessitate residential treatment. That’s why our outpatient treatment program for addiction and substance abuse is designed to not only serve individuals who are extending their care beyond residential rehab, but also provide the option for outpatient services to those who do not require the more structured detox and residential treatment setting.

Levels of Care


Because we know that life doesn’t happen to everyone equally, Harmony Place offers each patient an individualized treatment plan based on dual diagnosis care and evidence-based treatments, which allows the treatment team to focus on the mental health and the substance abuse or drug addiction that led them to our treatment programs.

Several Levels of Outpatient Rehab Los Angeles

Outpatient treatment at Harmony Place isn’t one size fits all. We offer several treatment steps requiring incremental levels of attendance from the client. The different levels of outpatient treatment are as follows, starting with the most intensive program:

  1. Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP): These treatment programs are suitable for patients who have mild to moderate psychiatric or emotional disorders; need more intensive treatment than provided in a traditional outpatient setting; require coordinated, intensive, and comprehensive treatment; can maintain themselves in the community
  2. Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP): immerses patients in a healthy environment that teaches them to change. IOPs are most commonly used to address drug addictions after patients have gone through rehab.
  3. Outpatient Treatment Programs: Ideal for people who need flexibility, affordability, and more access to their families for support.

Partial hospitalization is a vital bridge between the residential and outpatient phases of care. Of the three, PHP requires the most days and hours in treatment within a week. As the client shows more progress, they can step down to intensive outpatient treatment and then standard outpatient.

Overall, the outpatient stage is ideal for living outside of a residential rehab environment, but still receiving helpful therapy and education that helps keep relapse at bay.

The Goal of Outpatient Rehab Treatment, Los Angeles

Once you or your loved one has established a foundation for recovery after drug or alcohol detox and/or inpatient treatment, the next step is to put those adaptive coping strategies for maintaining sobriety you learned in your therapy sessions into practice in real-life situations. 

Outpatient treatment is a vital resource for keeping the client focused on their primary goal of long-term recovery. This is why recovery and relapse prevention education continue at this level of care. The more the client understands their addiction, including learning to identify relapse warning signs, the more they are likely to continue to succeed in recovery.

Our Outpatient Treatment Methods

Our clinicians work with clients to understand social, interpersonal, and psychological obstacles that interfere with their developmental stages of recovery. They utilize group therapy to identify and process other social and emotional warning signs. They develop reasonable interventions when the addiction is activated.

Harmony Care clinicians also work with clients to examine their interests and potential and understand that a thriving future awaits them after treatment. Our outpatient treatment techniques include:

  • Individual psychotherapy – Clients get two individual sessions per week with a licensed therapist who explores the impediments to recovery.
  • Psychotherapy groups – Group therapy explores clinical topics meant to elicit emotion-laden material and is sensitive to the clients’ needs.
  • Psychoeducational groups – A combination of educational and process groups designed to educate about addiction and co-occurring disorders. Counselors and therapists focus on relevant topics and provide information to clients— insight and understanding help reduce toxic stress levels.
  • Holistic healing groups – Balanced living is crucial for building relapse resistance. Outpatient rehab providers bring the same practices of mindful meditations, energy healing, creative art expression, and yoga from the residential experience into outpatient treatment to create that necessary balance.
  • Experiential groups – Equine-assisted therapy, beach walks, and social/cultural outings offer positive new experiences that help build resistance to the stress that can trigger addictive behaviors.
  • Career counseling – Clients explore academic and employment opportunities for when they are ready to return to the workforce, continue their education, or discover a new career.
Frequently Asked Questions

Outpatient Addiction Treatment in Los Angeles FAQs

Surely you have more questions about what’s involved in our outpatient care at Harmony Place. See if we’ve got your answer in one of the frequently asked questions below:

Are your outpatient services solely focused around talk therapy?

Absolutely not. Our outpatient treatment providers work with clients to visualize and plan their futures, whether they need vocational or educational counseling, life skills training, or continued support for necessary lifestyle changes. This culmination of the comprehensive care plan extends beyond clinical treatment, empowering individuals to continue their personal growth long after their time with us is complete.

Looking through “Our Outpatient Treatment Methods” above, you’ll see that we also offer several holistic and experiential services in our outpatient program, including equine-assisted therapy, yoga, beach walks, and more. While talk therapy is one of our treatments in our outpatient rehab, it is far from the only focus. We want our clients to experience a variety of therapies to balance the triggers, stress, and support they might face in their everyday lives.

Must all clients complete your residential program before beginning outpatient treatment?

Some individuals are able to recognize the damage caused by their addiction before it has progressed to a stage where medical detox and residential treatment are necessary. Thus, our outpatient program can function as a standalone treatment option for adult men and women living in the community.

In outpatient rehab, the need for treatment is still vital in order to address the long-term physical, emotional and spiritual damage inflicted by addiction and co-occurring disorders. The end goal remains the same across all methods of treatment: sustainable, lifelong recovery.

Where do I live after graduating your residential program and transitioning to your outpatient program?

If you live in the area, you can return home after residential rehab and swing by our outpatient office when you’re scheduled for treatment. You’re also welcome to find your own temporary housing if you don’t come from this area.

However, we recommend looking into our transitional living accommodations during outpatient treatment. We offer high-end amenities within a spacious property not far from our residential facility. Transitional living with Harmony House provides a safe environment to return to every night, encouraging sobriety and accountability.

Structured Transitional Living

Can I work or return to school while in your outpatient program?

Yes. In fact, it’s encouraged to return to your normal life, especially if you partake in our transitional living program. However, it may be challenging to juggle your rehab and work/school obligations until you’ve graduated from the partial hospitalization phase of outpatient programs.

Does your treatment end with the outpatient program?

Yes and no. The outpatient phase is technically the last step in the formal treatment process. However, Harmony Place offers many helpful aftercare services and alumni activities to keep our former clients engaged with their respective recoveries.

Graduates of our residential and outpatient programs are invited to remain a part of the Harmony Place family by participating in our Alumni Program, which has proven to lead to long-lasting recovery and more significant mental health for our clients.

The Harmony Place Alumni Program offers weekly alumni meetings at our residential facility in Woodland Hills in West Los Angeles, CA; an online support group; social events; and the opportunity to grow as a leader by becoming a Harmony Place Mentor. A licensed therapist directs and supervises the alumni program and meetings. Participation in the alumni program is offered at no cost.
