There are many reasons that people who may need treatment for substance use or mental health challenges never seek help. Many people may be in denial that their issues are severe enough to justify treatment. Others may want to seek treatment but are too afraid of the repercussions of leaving home or their jobs for an extended period. At Warner Park, we are here to help.
Outpatient programs are a style of addiction or mental health disorder treatment that allows patients to maintain much of their life while in treatment, including continuing to live at home and possibly work. While outpatient treatment will enable people to preserve their freedom during the early stages of recovery, it may not be the best option for everyone.
Inpatient treatment is a treatment program that requires a person to live with the treatment facility for the entire extent of the program, which can usually last one or two months. During this time, a person will likely be isolated from the outside world, and it would be near impossible for them to maintain work or fulfill obligations at home. Although inpatient may be inconvenient to many, it is the most effective option for treating people with moderate to severe substance use disorders.
Outpatient treatment is a beneficial option to people who may have a manageable substance use or mental health challenge that is not currently putting them in danger. If a person is engaging in reckless behavior or putting themselves in harm’s way, outpatient treatment may not provide the 24-hour support they may need during the initial stages of recovery. Outpatient programs are also usually more affordable than inpatient, providing an alternative option for those who may be unable to pay for an inpatient program.
Warner Park Recovery Center has recently implemented an evening program designed to give treatment access to professionals who may otherwise not have availability during the daytime. This program is available for people dealing with a substance use issue or mental health disorder.
The program offers three group meetings per week, from 5:30 to 7:30 in the evening. Group meetings can be accessed virtually through our TeleMed options. Although many will take advantage of the virtual support, we suggest that each client attend in-person meetings at least once per week. In-person sessions often encourage higher levels of participation which is beneficial to long-term sobriety.
Outside of group meetings, clients in the evening program will meet with an on-staff therapist once or twice a week, depending on the needs of the individual. These meetings will occur outside the times designated for group sessions so that people can find the times that may work best for them.
As with any of our programs, clients in the new evening program will have full access to the staff psychiatrist if they feel they may need it.
While this evening program will be greatly beneficial to many people, it may not be a perfect fit for everyone. This program focuses on prevention and maintenance as an approach to both substance use and mental health challenges. If a person has a disorder that is putting them in immediate danger, it is highly likely they would benefit from a program that offered constant support and care, such as our inpatient treatment options.
The evening program is the right fit for people looking to get their challenges under control before it becomes serious. Whether a person is dealing with substance use or mental health challenges, work can often cause stress and anxiety, leading to these issues becoming more serious. Our evening program can help people build coping strategies and healthier behavior so that the stresses of everyday life do not lead to severe addiction or mental health obstacles.
At Warner Park, helping people through treatment is our primary goal. We believe that this evening programming will allow many people to seek help who may have otherwise felt unable. This program is beneficial for those whose jobs may make it difficult to find time for treatment and individuals who many feel that their substance use or mental health challenges are mild but fear them becoming more severe over time.
Seeking treatment while maintaining a job can be a challenging process. It may feel difficult to fulfill your obligations at home, work, and in treatment simultaneously. However, you must put your own mental and physical health above all else.
Treatment as a preventive measure can be crucial in avoiding severe mental health challenges in the future. Work doesn’t always stop after you leave work, as self-care can be just as important, if not more so, than anything you accomplish at your job.

If you or a loved one are struggling with alcohol use, don’t think that you have to go through it on your own. Treating alcohol dependency and the damage it can wreak is a difficult process and can be made easier by receiving professional treatment.
