Your First Step To A New Life

Intensive Outpatient Program

Drug and alcohol addiction is still a significant problem in the US. If you find yourself dealing with addiction issues, you need to understand your options are going to be limited. You can choose to keep treading water in the cycle of addiction, or you come to grips with the fact you have a disease and seek help. When you are ready to seek help, you’ll be glad to learn addiction treatment facilities like ours will work hard to develop a treatment plan that will meet your specific needs. If your addiction is significant, you would probably need to spend time in a residential treatment center where you can get round the clock care. If for any reason residential care is too restrictive, you might be able to get the recovery you need from an outpatient treatment program.

About Outpatient Treatment

Top rehab facilities like ours realize clients are unique individuals with unique circumstances. That’s why so many of us offer outpatient care options. Generally, there are three levels of outpatient care. All three of them fall under the ASAM guidelines that administrators use to develop addiction treatment programs. The three basic outpatient offerings include:
• Partial Hospitalization (PHP)
• Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
• General Outpatient (OP)

The primary thing that differentiates these three outpatient options is the amount of time clients have to devote to treatment. As a point of reference, partial hospitalization is by far the most restrictive outpatient treatment option. In some cases, clients will have to report for treatment every day of the week. This will continue until a specific client’s therapist feels the client is in recovery. After partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient care would be the next most restrictive treatment option. At this point, we would like to go into more depth about intensive outpatient treatment.

About Intensive Outpatient Treatment

If a client gets placement in an intensive outpatient program, they can expect to spend three to five days a week in the addiction treatment facility. Each day, they will typically undergo intensive one on one therapy for approximately four to six hours a day. Under most circumstances, intensive outpatient programs are going to continue for two to three months, depending on each client’s progress. The primary objective of individual therapy is to help clients gain a thorough understanding of the root causes of their addictions. It’s kind of a journey of self-discovery. If clients can learn to identify the issues that drive them to abuse drugs or alcohol, they can begin developing the coping and life skills they will need to combat their issues in the future. By the way, some therapists will have their clients attend group therapy sessions. In group therapy, clients get the opportunity to work with other clients and therapists to build support resources.

While going through an intensive outpatient program, clients need to follow rules and make good progress. If they can do that, they might get relegated down a notch to a less restrictive standard outpatient program. If progress is slow, clients might have to move up the ASAM treatment scale to partial hospitalization or even residential care. Knowing we can work with you to develop a custom treatment plan, we hope this motivates you to seek help.
