Outpatient rehabilitation is a form of therapy where patients travel to a clinic or hospital to attend sessions and then return home the same day. Typically, a therapy session lasts from 30 minutes to an hour. When patients are admitted into outpatient programs, it shows that the patients are doing well enough to be home, and their doctors have confidence in them completing their course of therapy through outpatient rehabilitation.
