Rehab vs. outpatient: You may certainly be ale to get rid of addiction without rehab. The type of addiction, duration, previous attempts at sobriety, current psycho-social status and other relevant factors may help predict if an out-patient program versus a rehab would be appropriate. There are lots of options besides rehab and no matter which you chose, dedication along with the right plan is the supreme rule.
