Luna Living Care RoomOutpatient vs Residential Treatment

Choosing Intensive Outpatient vs. Residential Treatment

In 2011, The American Society of Addictive Medicine, redefined Addiction as a chronic brain disease that must be medically AND psychologically treated to be effective. When the brain receives the nutritional support it needs, you automatically make better behavioral choices. This is why Luna Living treats drug and alcohol abuse as a physical disease first.

We offer an intensive outpatient Alcohol and Drug Detox Program with around the clock personal attention. No two people are treated alike because nutritional balance is unique to you.  Let us help you detox and live in remission (sobriety)!

While residential treatment (where a person resides on campus for weeks to months) can be effective in the short-term, there is debate whether residential treatment has any better long-term result on abstinence from drug and alcohol abuse than intensive outpatient programs.

Researchers found, in a federally funded four-year study of 922 alcoholics1 participating in a residential program, that:

  • 28 percent refrained from drinking for six months after treatment.
  • 21 percent remained abstinent after one year.
  • 7 percent remained abstinent after four years.

Outpatient Treatment Improves Your Results

Addiction, like other chronic illnesses, requires that you manage the symptoms of the disease in ways that don’t erode your quality of life. Typical symptoms include cravings, sleeplessness, nausea, agitation, tremors, anxiety, hypertension and memory problems. Left untreated these symptoms can be debilitating and progressive.

At Luna Living you learn to manage destructive symptoms that can trigger a relapse. You build your resilience through non-addictive and nutritional chemistry, behavior modification, and lifestyle changes.

Our outpatient programs are partial hospitalization, medical detox, outpatient, and behavioral health.

We offer:

  • Medically-supervised, nutritionally-aided detoxification and rejuvenation protocols
  • Administration of medication, if appropriate
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy – individual and group
  • Multidimensional family therapy

  • A staff that puts YOU first

Quantum Brain Cleanse butterfly10-Day IV NAD+ Quantum Brain Cleanse™ assists your detoxification and rejuvenation process by nourishing your body, fueling its natural ability to heal. Our medically-supervised, nutritionally-aided detoxification support, in the form of nutrition and adequate fluids, improves the elimination of toxins and encourages the healing of the organs directly involved in detoxification: the brain, liver, kidneys, and intestinal tract.

Disclaimer: The detoxification experience as outlined on this website is meant to be an example, but results, withdrawal symptoms, and experience will vary by patient, severity of addiction and other factors.

Behavioral Health

Negative behavior interferes with your quality of life and it can destroy your health. Factors like stress trigger old habits that are difficult to change. We can help you significantly reduce the pain and distress associated with persistent substance abuse and neurodegenerative conditions.


Isn’t it time to take your personal power back? Luna Living makes change fun, manageable, and inspiring. Only one catch, get use to the fame. People will ask. What’s different? Where can I buy that? Children and spouses will happily follow.
