Ohio Outpatient Programs
Second Chance Counseling Center offers a wide range of Substance Abuse treatments and services to meet our clients needs.
The way that addiction affects a person can vary dramatically depending on the substance they abuse, the length of time they have abused it for, and a variety of other factors. These factors range from biological, to social, to environmental, combining together to make addiction a complicated illness, with complicated results ensuing.

Caring and Compassionate
Gaining a Support Network
Some people will find that they lose everything during their active addiction. They may lose their job, their relationships, their children, and any semblance of self they once had. They may suffer physical ramifications because of their addiction and they may even have legal troubles due to the actions they took in order to get high or drunk. For individuals like this, it is sometimes easier for them to see that they have a problem with substance abuse, due to the fact that there are physical manifestations of their problem all around them. They wake up in the morning and are faced with the reality of their situation, and so because of this they know that they need to seek help.
At Second Change Counseling, we understand how difficult it can be to come to terms with the fact that you may have a substance abuse problem, and we understand exactly what you need in order to finally overcome your affliction. We know that you may have tried to get sober in the past and that you may be skeptical as to what will be different this time, but the staff at SCC is here to help you break free from the cycle of addiction that has plagued your life for too long.
What is Outpatient?
Outpatient, the kind of which we offer at our Ohio OP, is a form of substance abuse treatment where the client attends only a few times a week. Many OP programs are 3 days a week, and unlike their more intensive counterparts, Inpatient or PHP, the individual lives at home for their duration of the treatment process.
Often times outpatient programs are used as a continuation of care after inpatient or PHP and they offer transitional support as the client leaves the structure and security of the treatment center for the outside world. It is during this phase of the recovery process that a person is most apt to return to using and so an Outpatient Program, like our Ohio Outpatient Program, can act as a bridge between the relative safety of treatment and the stress of daily life.
Leaving treatment can be a tremendously stressful experience for newly sober individuals, as they have to find work, find a place to live (if they are in a new city), and learn how to operate in life without the aid of alcohol or drugs. While none of this is insurmountable, without the proper support of a program like our Ohio Outpatient Program, it can be treacherous, to say the least.
Who Could Benefit from an Outpatient Program in Columbus, Ohio?
While every addict or alcoholic could benefit from our Ohio Outpatient Program the people who attend our program usually fall into two categories: those who are stepping down from a higher level of care, and those who are directly attending our OP program.
The former group is those described above and they are individuals who need the added support and structure that an Outpatient Program can offer as they transition out of treatment and back into their daily lives. What OP will offer them is the ability to have a safe space they go to, a number of times a week, where they can discuss what is going on with them and learn coping skills for dealing with life without drugs or alcohol.
If they are having a problem with their family they can help get help from one of our many counselors in dealing with this situation. If they are having relation troubles or problems at work, we can help with that as well. At our Ohio Outpatient Program, we are equipped to help guide you through anything that life can bring and help you to handle it all without having to resort to drinking or using drugs.
The latter group of individuals who attend our Outpatient Program are people who cannot, for whatever reason, go away for treatment for an extended period of time. Many times these people will have responsibilities that they cannot get away from, but yet they still need help with their addiction issues. For these individuals, our Ohio Outpatient Program is a perfect match because it gives them the flexibility to continue on with their responsibilities and still get the support and care they need in order to overcome their addiction.
They will be able to attend group and individual therapy sessions in a manner that makes sense with their current schedule, and since there isn’t a break in their life, they will be able to learn how to deal with real life situations, in real time, as they occur. If they are experiencing trouble with their spouse they can get the support they need in order to navigate that scenario, and likewise for anything else that may come up during their treatment process.
