Outpatient treatment is a step-down program for participants transitioning from a more intense treatment program, such as an intensive outpatient program (IOP). However, the goals, treatment strategies, and therapies remain the same for a participant in outpatient treatment. The primary difference in an outpatient program is the duration and intensity compared to an intensive outpatient program (IOP). Participants in outpatient programs will continue to maintain counseling and relapse prevention programs and learn about drug and alcohol education. At Crescent Moon Recovery, individuals have the opportunity to work with a clinical team and connect with peers for support and encouragement while part of an outpatient program.

According to a 2017 California state profile from the National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N-SSATS), 88% of clients getting help for substance abuse were receiving treatment at an outpatient facility. Of these outpatient facilities: 

  • 99% offer individual counseling
  • 93% offer group counseling
  • 75% offer family counseling
  • 54% offer marital/couples counseling

On September 25, 2020, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed behavioral health reform bills for Californians intended to improve access to quality healthcare services for mental health and substance use disorders. He stated the Mental Health Services Act funds should also be used for substance abuse treatment alongside mental and behavioral health. These funds help increase access to substance use disorder treatment and improve care coordination among treatment facilities. This includes outpatient programs for treatment, which are essential for maintaining recovery and a necessary step in the right direction for individuals who need help achieving sobriety. 

Outpatient Treatment at Crescent Moon Recovery

Participants who come to Crescent Moon Recovery are met with several program options to meet people on their journey to recovery and best suit their needs. Our outpatient treatment program offers participants the ability to get treatment while staying active and involved in their personal lives. 

In particular, outpatient treatment programs for substance use disorder (SUD) or alcohol use disorder (AUD) allow patients to continue their daily lives during the treatment process. The suitability of our outpatient treatment program can be discussed during your initial consultation and will depend on personal circumstances such as educational, familial, or career commitments, as well as previous treatment history.

Crescent Moon Recovery’s outpatient program can also be considered a step-down program from partial hospitalization programs (PHPs), the process of which is outlined in our outpatient care plans for the integration of family life and drug treatment. Our drug counselors work hard to address each patient’s addiction treatment needs on an individual basis.

Whether you choose to participate in an outpatient program, intensive outpatient program (IOP), or our PHP, you will benefit from the highest level of care from our qualified, dedicated professionals and receive access to the same outstanding facilities, events, and activities that Cresent Moon Recovery provides.

The Benefits Of Intensive Outpatient Treatment

  • Strong, positive social network
  • Outdoor activities
  • Individual treatment plans to support their goals
  • Accountability and regular check-ins
  • A supportive team of mentors and professional therapists
  • Support groups
  • A warm and welcoming environment

Crescent Moon Recovery’s outpatient treatment fosters well-being through the lens of a mind-body-spirit approach. 


The costs associated with outpatient rehab programs in Orange County, CA, are often substantially less than the cost of inpatient rehab. The reason is obvious when considering the costs of staying in a hotel long-term rather than living at home or in a sober living facility. Outpatient rehab is considered the most cost-effective way for men and women to receive quality drug and alcohol treatment in Orange County.

Live at Home

Depending on the type of substance use and the length of active addiction, the option to live at home can be a benefit. Without the hassle of relocating to a treatment center and the separation from loved ones, some patients can take advantage of our flexible outpatient rehab services while remaining in the comfort of their own homes. Provided they have access to transportation each day and their home life is stable enough to support this option, some clients in our drug rehab choose to commit to our outpatient program for support for long-term recovery.

Community Access

Whether it be working in the community or other positive community opportunities, some people find that our Orange County outpatient program is a good fit for their lifestyle. Should our counselors support this decision, clients can stay connected to their church, home, and employment communities through their treatment process. An outpatient program option may not be appropriate for some clients as the risk of re-engaging with detrimental relationships can sabotage their hard-earned addiction recovery. The community built within our Orange County outpatient rehab center is designed to help clients with substance use disorders learn to engage the world and all its pressures in healthy, constructive ways.

We know there isn’t a one-size-fits-all road to recovery, which is why we believe in using a mind-body-spirit approach when working with our participants. Many participants see the benefit of advocating for their own treatment path and working with their team to create an individual plan that works best for their unique needs. We believe finding the proper treatment is essential to long-standing recovery.  At the core of our programs are evidence-based therapies provided by licensed professionals. 

We believe in having an open-door policy between our staff and the participants of the program. Participants can easily approach the staff for support or guidance in their treatment with ease. It is imperative that we provide a safe and supportive environment for the participants of our outreach program. As part of their treatment, participants also get to meet with a nutritionist to discuss their health and wellness goals.  We truly believe the cornerstone for recovery is having a supportive community by your side, and, at Crescent Moon Recovery, participants get to experience the benefit of this bond in living a sober life.

12-Step Facilitation 

At Crescent Moon Recovery, we offer 12-Step facilitation as an option for participants. While there are many paths to recovery, we promote evidence-based therapies and have seen long-term positive outcomes with 12-Step programs. It is a support group offered as part of our outpatient treatment program. 

The self-help groups associated with the 12-Step program are Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA), and many others. These groups are easily accessible after completing an outpatient program and are available at no cost in communities all over the world. Since the accessibility to these groups is very easy, it is a handy resource for participants to maintain long-term recovery and sobriety. 

Participants who attend these groups will follow the 12 Steps or 12 Principles based on the philosophy of the program. Studies have shown that individuals who are part of 12-Step programs and attend meetings consistently can achieve long-term abstinence. 


Crescent Moon Recovery offers a variety of modalities for participants to engage in while in outpatient treatment. One of these modalities is the practice of yoga. Yoga is considered a holistic treatment intervention and is a form of mind-body practice that has been proven to: 

  • Reduce stress
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Improve physical health
  • Improve mental health

Yoga has been known to help manage symptoms of chronic mental illness which draws a parallel to drug dependence due to it being like a chronic mental illness. Research has concluded that yoga and other therapies can be a promising intervention for substance use disorders. As such, we want to offer participants options to explore their relationship with themselves in recovery and personalize it to what they need emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. 

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of therapy that helps individuals identify problematic thoughts and behaviors and learn how to reframe them by applying a range of different skills that can be used to stop substance use and other maladaptive behaviors. CBT can help individuals learn how their thoughts, actions, and emotions influence their behaviors around substance use and how to replace them with new, healthier ones. Through CBT, a participant will be able to: 

  • Develop new coping skills
  • Practice self-control
  • Identify situations that might put them at risk
  • Develop tools to cope with the cravings

CBT is an effective form of therapy in outpatient treatment and can help individuals retain the skills learned even after treatment is over.

  • Staying connected to a positive, supportive community
  • Receiving the proper care needed

  • Preventing the possibility of relapse
  • Knowing community resources and tools for sobriety

Participants learn life-long principles that will forever support them in living a healthy lifestyle, staying sober, and staying connected to a strong support system. Principles of effective treatment programs include: 

  • There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for anyone. Treatment varies and is different based on a person’s needs, situation, and background.
  • Treatment options must be readily accessible. It is critical for treatment to be easily available for participants when they are ready due to the time-sensitive nature.
  • Treatment involves several forms of therapies and should address the needs of the individual.
  • Duration of treatment is critical for it to be effective and help an individual stop or reduce their drug use.
  • Participants must be able to access their treatment plans easily and readily to ensure it meets the participant’s needs and goals.
