Once a guest has finished our nine-week outpatient program— three weeks of PHP and six weeks of IOP— they may choose to continue treatment with us at the outpatient level on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis. Session frequency is determined by the guest and therapist and what guest needs are at this stage of continuing care. Guests who choose to continue their treatment at the OP level of care often stay at Royal Life Housing. However, this is optional and some guests choose to live at home and receive care. Guests may also attend group if specified in the individualized treatment plan they create with their therapist.
Our outpatient program (OP) is a less structured, more flexible form of aftercare. It has been carefully designed for those who are employed and self-sufficient in functioning on their own in everyday life. At this point, guests have rebuilt much of their physical and mental health following our programs and are ready to begin a new, sober life.
Outpatient programming at Royal Life Centers at Sound offers guests an aftercare option to follow the more intensive nine-week program. Our OP program helps prepare guests for living on their own again. Nightly curfews and regular UA tests hold guests accountable and re-teaches what it means to take responsibility for their actions. It is critical to learn impulse control and create a foundation upon which to build self-sufficiency. It is also important that guests are able to make sound decisions based on anticipated outcomes. Our goal is that guests leave our care feeling confident in their sobriety.
Outpatient guests who have completed our nine-week program and obtained a job may choose to live at our graduate housing, part of our sober living program. All bedrooms and living rooms have flatscreen TVs, with washers and dryers available on the premises. Guests may also obtain overnight passes, as well as have visitors on property.
Guests are also provided daily transportation to meetings (AA, NA, etc.) and the grocery store. Our in-house sober living staff is also available 24/7.
