If you find you’re unable to control your intake of drugs or alcohol but residential rehab isn’t an option for you, outpatient addiction treatment is ideal. It’s also the logical next step down from inpatient treatment.

It can be quite a shock to go from the structure and support of residential addiction treatment straight back to normal life. Experts tend to recommend that you continue to attend therapy and gradually reduce the time spent under medical supervision.

No matter what stage of addiction you’re at or how long you’ve been using substances, you can overcome addiction. Call Brookside Treatment today at 606-342-7089 to find out more.

Brookside Outpatient Treatment

286 US-23 N Prestonsburg, KY 41653



When you first come into the Brookside Treatment center, you’ll meet with one of our friendly doctors. They’ll perform a thorough medical examination and ask questions about your medical history to determine your precise situation. This process allows us to develop a treatment plan that’s customized to your unique circumstances and needs.


If the doctor deems it necessary, you’ll start with a detoxification program to purge the toxins from your body. This is a gentle program that prepares you physically and mentally for the therapy and guidance you receive in rehab. Substances significantly cloud your judgment, so it’s crucial that you get the care you need with a clear mind.

Remember, detox is just preparation for rehab. Clearing your body of substances is only a temporary solution that doesn’t address the underlying issues. Severe substance use disorders might require a stay in an inpatient facility. However, for many people, outpatient treatment is the most viable option.

Outpatient Rehab

During outpatient addiction treatment, you spend around three hours a day attending group and individual therapy sessions, up to six days a week. You’ll spend time learning about addiction and why it affects people and go into detail with a counselor about how to develop new, healthy coping mechanisms.


Rehab isn’t the end of the recovery journey. Most people who achieve long-term sobriety continue attending some form of treatment for at least two years, if not indefinitely. You can participate in general outpatient rehab for an hour a week, attend free AA or NA meetings — or both. Recovery is an ongoing process, and it’s best to get as much help and support as you can.

The opioid epidemic isn’t just dangerous for its direct impact on a person’s physical and mental health. It has the unfortunate side effect of increasing a person’s risk of HIV or hepatitis. Out of the entire country, the CDC has ranked Floyd County as the 10th most at-risk of HIV or hepatitis C outbreaks.

This additional risk adds an extra level of urgency to seeking treatment if you’re struggling with addiction. Prescription drugs are often gateway substances to more potent ones such as heroin or fentanyl.
