Outpatients Program

We offer a 10 week outpatient programme for anyone who needs to break the cycle of addiction but who may not need full residential care at this time. Your assessment counsellor will give guidance and advice about which programme best meets your current needs.

How the programme works

During the outpatients programme you will attend 3 sessions per week here at the Rutland Centre. Two of these sessions will be group therapy, facilitated by our specialist addiction counselling team and the third will be a 1:1 counselling session.

The programme includes the following aspects:

  • Clinical assessment

  • Individualised treatment planning

  • Group therapy (client centred)

  • Lectures

  • Workshops

  • 1:1 counselling sessions

  • Family involvement and support

Clients who are best suited to the outpatients programme include those who:

  • Have minimal or no risk of severe withdrawal

  • Have well managed or no medical conditions that would distract from treatment

  • Can demonstrate a readiness to work towards change but require the support of a structured environment to achieve this

  • Need close support and monitoring to maintain abstinence

  • Have support and good coping skills
