IOP – Intensive Outpatient
What does The Beaches Treatment Center Intensive Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Treatment Program offer?
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Our Intensive Outpatient Program at The Beaches Treatment Center focuses on moving the external structure provided in PHP to an internal structure clients follow on their own. When clients step down to our Intensive Outpatient Program, we provide all of the same therapeutic services, just for a little less time each day. IOP is the second level of care that is offered by The Beaches Treatment Center.
In the first phase, clients attend 5 days of group each week. Phase two of IOP occurs when a client obtains employment, at which time clients can attend a minimum of three days a week. Groups are held daily. In IOP our clinical program centers around integrating clients into a larger recovery community. Clients attend groups on relapse prevention, developing responsible behaviors and coping skills. Clients also work with their therapists individually on a weekly basis. While clients are not attending group, they are free to go to meetings of their choice and to seek employment or volunteer. We are located in a great area in close proximity to the beach, malls, and restaurants, so there are plenty of options for fun sober activities in the area. IOP provides clients with a smooth transition from a treatment setting to continuing their journey of recovery and living a happy sober life.
While taking part in our Intensive outpatient program (IOP) patients live and sleep in their own homes or at a separate sober-living facility. Participants are given the opportunity to attend group counseling sessions, 12-step meetings, individual counseling sessions, drug and alcohol addiction education classes, and substance abuse relapse prevention training. Our IOP program provides excellent part-time treatment services, allowing the client to get the help they need while continuing to maintain their scheduling obligations.
When a participant is not partaking in IOP drug and alcohol rehabilitation therapy, they are living and working in their normal environments or in an independent sober-living facility. Participants are able to go to work or school as they normally would, and they can participate in whatever drug free activities they choose during their free time that is not spent in drug and alcohol substance abuse therapy sessions.
An intensive outpatient program usually includes the same types of treatment as an inpatient program just for less time each day, it a less restrictive level of care. Participants may attend group counseling sessions, 12-step meetings, individual counseling sessions, drug and alcohol addiction education classes, and substance abuse relapse prevention training. Our clients are transitioning back into normal society and back into being contributing members of the society, it is a very important stage of addiction treatment.
The Beaches IOP Is Especially Beneficial For:
Individuals who have recently completed inpatient treatment:
Often times, people will go directly to IOP after completing a partial hospitalization program (PHP). After they have spent time focusing on their recovery at an inpatient facility, an IOP program can serve as a great transitional period, by giving the individual more freedom while still providing a supportive, treatment-based environment.
Individuals attending either work or school:
Sometimes people are unable to put their work or education obligations on-hold in order to receive inpatient treatment for their drug and/or alcohol addictions. Our IOP program allows each individual to maintain their obligations while still receiving valuable treatment with trained professionals.
Individuals who have struggled with relapses:
Drug and alcohol addictions can have a powerful pull on the mind and even those who have maintained their sobriety for extended periods of time can be at risk for a relapse. People who have recently relapsed or feel as if they may be prone to relapse in the future can benefit from the services offered in our IOP program.
