Find Support with Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Melbourne

Our Outpatient Relapse Prevention program has been designed to support patients as they reintegrate into society following the Inpatient Rehabilitation Program. Outpatient support is key to promoting long term sobriety and preventing sudden relapse. Continually revisiting the program is hard work, but it prevents our patients from entering into the harmful behaviour that underpinned their addiction.

The Outpatient Relapse Prevention program continues the holistic model of care practised in other stages of treatment, addressing the physical, emotional, psychological, social, and spiritual impacts of addiction.

This is addressed through two main avenues:

  • Transitional Housing, where patients are offered a safe, secure, and supported space to live as they reenter society, free from addiction.
  • Intensive Outpatients, where patients can continually revisit programs and therapies from The Hader Clinic, including peer support, and individual counselling.
The Hader Clinic’s Jackson Oppy explains how addicts are not able to predict how much they are going to use once they start using or control their use.

Treatment at The Hader Clinic

Book a free 60-Minute Consultation

The initial stage of The Hader Clinic's treatment program is to attend a 60-Minute Consultation with one of our friendly members of staff. This will set the stage for the rest of the program. Each patient will undergo comprehensive pre-assessment in this phase.

During this session, our staff will get to know the patients and their addiction. These insights will form the basis of a holistic treatment plan. This approach will ensure that the patient receives the best in care. Patients can be admitted immediately after this consultation.

28-Day Withdrawal & Detox Program

The first stage of the process is the 28-Day Withdrawal & Detox Program. This comprehensive program allows patients to overcome withdrawal and detox safely and with complete medical support.

Patients will be given their first glimpse into a life without drugs. They will be fully supported by our holistic model of treatment, which has been designed to help the patient overcome the physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual effects of addiction.

Book a consultation

Inpatient Rehabilitation Program

Following withdrawal and detox treatment, patients can progress to the second stage of treatment — the Inpatient Rehabilitation Program. This program can last between 60 and 90 days, and takes place at a separate facility.

This program is designed to help patients discover their own sense of responsibility and independence as their recovery continues. They will continue to follow our holistic model of treatment, including group therapies, individual counselling, and other engaging activities.

Outpatient Relapse Prevention

After progressing through the previous stage, patients will have the tools they need to enter the outside world with outpatient rehabilitation. Finally, our Outpatient Relapse Prevention Program allows patients to begin transitioning back into normal life.

Patients can access Transitional Housing — a safe space to ease back into the world outside of our treatment facilities.  Intensive Outpatient treatments can support ongoing recovery, allowing patients to return to the programs that helped them along the way.

How we have helped our patients

Frequently asked questions about our Outpatient Relapse Prevention

Why are outpatient alcohol rehab and outpatient drug rehab services important?

Relapse is a genuine and pressing issue affecting recovering addicts. After spending between 28 and over 100 days in rehabilitation facilities, patients need to begin adjusting to life in the outside world once again. Without the support of caring staff and helpful outpatient rehab programs, this transition might become too much, leaving them prone to slipping back into old habits.

What happens in Transitional Housing?

For patients who have completed our residential rehabilitation programs, our Transitional Housing program offers a safe and comfortable space for them to transition into the world outside. This outpatient rehabilitation program is about reintroducing the normalcy of life, and allowing patients to reenter life at their own pace.

At our transition houses, residents will:

  • Enjoy a safe, substance-free setting with urine drug screening and alcohol breath tests
  • Learn to coexistence with peers in a cooperative environment
  • Find their own sense personal accountability and ownership over recovery
  • Benefit from counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy, and group therapy
  • Focus on life skill development

Residents will also be encouraged to find activities outside of the outpatient drug rehab program, including recreation, volunteering, training, and part-time work. Throughout this process, you will be continually supported by our friendly team of expert staff.

What happens in Intensive Outpatients programs?

Our Intensive Outpatients programs underpin our rehabilitation support treatments. They are designed to offer patients the same structure of our inpatients programs while they work to normalise in the outside world. This continuum of care is the best possible chance of preventing relapse.

Programs involved in our Intensive Outpatient program include:

  • Daily check-ins with our clinics
  • Individual counselling
  • Peer support and group therapy
  • Cognitive behaviour therapy
  • Urine drug screening

What happens after Outpatient Relapse Prevention?

The road to recovery is far from over. Addiction is a lifelong battle that can affect a person for years and decades. Treatment never really ends, just as an addict is never fully 'recovered' from their addiction.

Patients can continue to revisit our Outpatient Relapse Prevention programs as long as they need after completing inpatient programs at The Hader Clinic.
