The Salvation Army Reno's Adult Rehabilitation Program

Well structured. Lack of inside meetings. Salvation Army works hard with their clients to help them stay clean and sober after they commenced the program.

Bristlecone Family Resources

It is affordable for the poor and middle class to get the help they need. Facility was old. It was too easy for patients to give up and leave. One of our children received treatment at Bristlecomb for 2 weeks. It was good to see him dry out and feeling better during our visits. Visits are available only during certain days and hours each week. Unfortunately the facility was too willing to let him "out" for the weekend after 2 weeks. He never showed back up on Monday as he fell right back into his addiction over the weekend. The staff seemed very nice, with a firm but fair approach. Apparently they do a lot of "group therapy" during the treatment as our child complained about he amount of "group" he had to attend - I would not say this is a good or bad thing, only that it was one of their methods.

Defining Outpatient Treatment

Attending an outpatient program allows people to receive effective care that doesn’t interfere with their daily functioning at work, school, or home.6,7 Detox can also be accomplished on an outpatient basis for withdrawal symptoms that aren’t severe.8 Outpatient programs provide care that is less expensive than inpatient treatment, don’t require people to put their lives on hold while getting treatment, and let people stay in treatment longer, which has been shown to have better outcomes for many.6,7

Intensive outpatient programs involve 6­ to 9 hours of weekly services, while standard outpatient programs are less rigorous and of a shorter weekly duration.6,8 Effective treatment programs use a variety of techniques provided in individual, group, and family counseling sessions, including:6,7

  • Behavioral therapy to change patterns that reinforce substance use.
  • Medications to help with detox, cravings, and mental illness (if applicable).
  • Encouraging participants to attend self-help or peer support meetings.
