Intensive Outpatient Treatment
Recovery Way’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) provides treatment which will empower patients to function more independently and responsibly while preparing them for the community with the skills and abilities to lead successful lives. It can be designed to work in conjunction with your daily career to prevent a period of absence from your occupation and can allow you to live at home instead of at one of our locations. We provide comprehensive outpatient services for those who are assessed as being able to participate successfully in regularly scheduled outpatient visits and who are not at medical risk. The program has a weekly commitment to attend three Recovery Ways evening or morning group therapy sessions. We also have a family program and you will be introduced to local 12-step groups. IOP patients have learned the fundamentals of addiction management and will learn how to strengthen those skills and build the start for their new sober lives. Through this program, the staff at Recovery Ways will help patients start putting the fundamentals of their sober life in place and help them with any problems that may arise during this time. Patients will continue therapy and have other services offered to them including life skills to help with the continued healing of the mind, body, and soul.
A licensed therapist will perform a full assessment and help you design an individual program to fit your particular addiction needs. While you may think that an outpatient program is where you want to start the best way to know is through this assessment. Patients who have a history of relapse, a destructive home environment, small to no support group, or are dangerous to themselves or others should not consider this program as a primary treatment plan. Those addicted to substances such as heroin or other opioids tend to do better when they start with an inpatient residential program. Recovery Ways will always work with patients but ultimately our commitment is to you and your sobriety and if this is not the right program we will let you know. We will help establish a plan with defined milestones to help patients measure their success and stay motivated.
Is intensive outpatient addiction treatment right for you?
If you or a loved one is suffering from addiction or other co-occurring disorders, please contact us immediately. Our admission coordinators will walk you through the admissions process and the correct level of help and care.
Our outpatient program is great for individuals who are recovering from addiction and who have gone through our inpatient residential program first. It is also for those assessed as being ready for a less intensive treatment options. Those who are determined and serious about their sobriety but still have daily responsibilities are also a good fit. Even through our outpatient program, we promote support, education, and counseling for all patients. The amount of time, people stay in this program, depends on where they are at in their recovery, what kind of drug(s) they were abusing, how severe their addiction was, and some other factors but it usually isn’t more than six months.
While patients participate in our Intensive Outpatient Program there are a few goals that we want to be sure they meet as well as some of the personal goals they may set up with their therapists when entering into this program. Achieving these and their personal goals allow for a sense of accomplishment and added motivation to continue on this path of sobriety.
- Interrupt the self-destructive pattern of alcohol and drug dependency
- Assess, address and begin to correct the harm to health and emotional well-being
- Help you understand chemical dependency and relapse prevention skills
- Assist you to improve your relationships and communication skills
- Introduce you and your family to community 12- step programs
Benefits of Intensive Outpatient Treatment
For those who have a mild to a moderate addiction or for those who completed their inpatient residential treatment and still want or need some support, this is the ideal option. It offers a more affordable option than inpatient treatment. There is more flexibility with outpatient treatment that will allow you to continue your daily responsibilities like families or jobs. With the outpatient program, the family is essential and their involvement and support are essential. The family will help keep patients on the path of sobriety and be able to hold them accountable for their decisions and even make sure that they attend their meetings at Recovery Ways as well as with the 12 step groups. This type of family integration treatment can help rebuild any trust that had been lost due to the addiction and being apart of each other’s lives again can help both sides understand the patient’s addiction and treatment better.
The therapists at Recovery Ways are also available for a telephone consultation to assist you with day-to-day problems that may arise. Your Intensive Outpatient program will be followed by our Aftercare and Alumni Programs to ensure that your success continues into the future. These programs will offer you continued support and understanding as well as new opportunities and new sober activities. Your decision to commit to a life free of substance abuse is significant. Our commitment is to help you achieve this goal.
