IOP: Flexible Treatment That Works
Sobriety requires ongoing, intensive treatment, and a strong support network. At Destination Hope, we understand that not all individuals will be able to attend inpatient programs, or may only be able to attend a short program. Still, these women deserve to get the help they need in order to recover from addiction.
Our intensive outpatient program is considered an intermediate level of care and offers many of the same benefits of the traditional full-time inpatient addiction treatment program.
What is Intensive Outpatient Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment?
Intensive outpatient programs, also known as IOP, are a treatment option that enables those in recovery to continue therapies on a part-time, yet intensive, schedule. Patients must attend regularly scheduled sessions for treatment and counseling. The intensive outpatient programs are designed to accommodate family and career obligations.
Outpatient alcohol treatment and drug rehab programs allow you to develop a foundation for long-term recovery right from the start of treatment, rather than after you return from inpatient rehab.Start The IOP Admissions Process
What Makes our Intensive Outpatient Program Unique:
Different treatment plans entail different levels of support and responsibility. Destination Hope’s addiction specialists can help to determine if an outpatient drug rehab and alcohol treatment program is ideal for you. Our program is exceptional in many different ways:
- Limited size, allowing a greater degree of individual attention and care
- Gender-specific treatment, encouraging an intense focus on recovery and bonding with each another in each other’s struggles
- Family focused, focused on resolving any issues amongst family relationships
Is an Intensive Outpatient Program Right for You?
This program is ideal for women who have completed our residential treatment program and wish to continue on a part-time basis.
With less structure and supervision, clients in the IOP program must have an exceptional degree of commitment to their sobriety in order to be successful. If you think that your home environment is not a stable place to continue your recovery, Destination Hope can help you find the right sober living environment for you.
Those struggling with drug or alcohol addiction should discuss their particular circumstances with a treatment specialist.
Outpatient Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Addiction
Outpatient Alcohol Treatment
The first part of recovery is getting alcohol out of the patient’s system. Severe alcohol addiction can lead to intense withdrawal symptoms, which is why a medical detox may be recommended. Following detox, an outpatient alcohol treatment program can help patients continue their recovery therapies within a schedule that fits their needs. Patients will learn to manage urges and cravings, prevent a relapse, learn about the disease of addiction, receive individual, group, and family therapies, and be provided with counseling sessions.
Outpatient Drug Rehab
In an outpatient drug rehab program, you will continue to live in your own home, go to work or school, and begin rebuilding your personal life, with the help and support you receive in the program. Similar to alcohol treatment, medical detox may be recommended. After a successful detox, the addict can be involved in a variety of therapies aimed at stopping substance abuse, following a recovery plan, and preventing a relapse. Similar to the alcohol program, patients may attend 12-step meetings, receive individual, group, and family therapy, learn relapse prevention skills, and more.
At Destination Hope, each client works with their counselor to design an individualized plan for outpatient care.
Treatment usually takes place 3 or 4 days a week for 3 – 4 hours a day. Because of the part-time nature of IOP, Destination Hope requires a commitment of at least six weeks of care. This allows enough time to address and begin correcting the issues that may be causing the substance abuse or addiction.
