Addiction Rehab Toronto offers outpatient counselling services to our clients upon completion of our inpatient program. Clients have the opportunity to book four, one-hour sessions at a time that can be divided and tailored to a schedule of their choosing. Outpatient counselling is completed in a one-on-one format with either the client’s primary counsellor or psychotherapist. Within a client’s journey to recovery, many times the biggest challenges occur once they return to their external environment. Some of the daily stressors faced before attending treatment still exist and as such it is helpful to discuss, with a counsellor, particular strategies in which to manage and overcome these challenges. Outpatient counselling is an important component of the recovery process as treatment should not end after the duration of their inpatient program. Recovery is a life-long process and a goal that needs to be continuously worked on.
Outpatient counselling explores a variety of topics that are unique to the individual client’s needs. Addiction Rehab Toronto uses a holistic approach that addresses treatment from a bio-psycho-social perspective. Topics that are often discussed include but are not limited to relapse prevention, boundaries, assertiveness, anger management, relationships, emotional intelligence and communication. Outpatient counselling allows the client to continue developing skills that will aid in life-long sobriety.
Outpatient counselling is also available to those who have not completed Addiction Rehab Toronto’s inpatient program but are still seeking help navigating through the challenges of sobriety.

Why Choose Outpatient Addiction Treatment, Toronto
Outpatient treatment has a wide range of options to suit your needs, making it ideal for many patients. Our programs involve everything from regular meetings and 12-step programs to partial hospitalization where you spend part of your day in a facility, but do not stay overnight.
Factors to Determine Eligibility for Outpatient Addiction Treatment, Toronto
While outpatient care is a useful option for many, it can’t be prescribed in some cases. Factors that may affect your eligibility include:
- Severity of Addiction: The length of time you’ve been suffering, your level of dependency and a variety of other factors go into determining the depth of addiction. We’ll evaluate this before prescribing a course of treatment.
- Previous Outpatient Therapy: If you’ve attempted outpatient therapy before and it either didn’t work or you relapsed quickly after, it’s likely that you need a different form of therapy now.
- Detoxification Requirements: If you require complete detox, a stay at the facility is typically a much better option. Detoxification is often a difficult and dangerous process without 24/7 supervision. A hospital stay may not be your preferred rehab, but it will serve you better in the long run.
- Commute: Practical concerns, like scheduling and the length of your commute to our facility, also need to be considered. If the commute is too long, you may find it easier to participate if you make arrangements to stay.
