Outpatient services can seem complex. Especially when you just want to get help and aren’t sure what the right choice is for you. At our P.A.T.H. Centers of Excellence, we will walk you through a preliminary needs assessment to better understand where you are in your addiction or mental health challenges and find the best outpatient treatment program for you.
One option for our outpatient programs that we may plan out for you is our intensive outpatient program. This program works by helping you focus on your recovery with a more intensive outpatient schedule while still providing you the opportunity to fulfill your daily obligations.
What You Need To Know About Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)
It can help you maintain daily life obligations.
The partial hospitalization program is the most time-depending treatment available outside of residential treatment. On the other hand, IOP requires that you dedicate a few hours a day, several times a week, to your treatment plan. In this case, we would see you about three hours per visit, three times a week. This can be either during the day or evening hours.
We get it. You have a life. Family, work and school all factor in when it comes to getting addiction and mental health treatment. The intensive outpatient program provides you with a little more freedom to maintain your daily commitments while working towards your recovery goals. We can help you create the best schedule to fit your unique needs.
Depending on your individualized treatment plan, IOP may require that you dedicate a few hours a day, several times a week, to your treatment plan.
It will involve both individual and group therapy.
Intensive outpatient programming works best when blended with individual and group therapy, including family therapy sessions. In these sessions, we will focus on educating you about your current struggle, whether it be addiction, mental health disorders or both, help you learn healthy coping skills and work to unpack the underlying traumas that may be impacting you. We will also work with you to gain an understanding of others’ experiences so you can repair relationships and build new ones.
We help you stay connected.
