Addiction is a disease. Like any disease, it requires intentional and consistent treatment to heal. One cannot simply will it away. Residential treatment is not a viable option for many people due to family, school, or work commitments. An intensive outpatient program (IOP) can provide needed recovery treatment and support for people who need to remain active in their daily lives.
In addition to residential offerings, we specialize in intensive outpatient program treatment at Oceanfront Recovery. Our outpatient clients benefit from a strong, supportive, sober local community in addition to high-quality, individualized treatment.
Please feel free to contact us at (877) 296-7477 to learn more about our IOP for addiction options. A brighter future is possible.
What to Know About an IOP for Addiction
Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) for addiction are designed to include the structure and rigor of a residential treatment program in just a few hours each day. An IOP is ideal for people committed to addiction recovery but cannot leave behind their daily commitments for residential treatment.
An IOP is intensive due to the program’s treatment schedule. Clients can expect around 10 hours of treatment activities in addition to homework each week. It is outpatient because people in the program sleep at home each night, although some IOP programs can help find local sober living for people in high-risk situations.
Discretion and remaining seamlessly integrated into their communities are two things that a person entering an IOP can expect. An IOP offers ongoing opportunities to practice new skills in real life and process the results in an ongoing and immediate way.
IOPs establish a robust support network, provide relapse prevention strategies, and help people learn and integrate healthier coping mechanisms. An IOP may include individual therapy, group therapy, life skills courses, trauma education and support, vocational training, emotional regulation skills, and family counseling.
Benefits of Intensive Outpatient Treatment
An IOP is ideal for anyone who needs to remain at home or active in their community while working on recovery. Some of the key benefits of participating in an IOP are:
