What is Intensive Outpatient Treatment?

Intensive Outpatient Treatment in California

When we look at the different forms of addiction treatment, the two main categories would be inpatient and outpatient services. Inpatient services would include detoxification and inpatient rehab programs. Outpatient services include partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and routine outpatient groups. We work with local outpatient programs to assist our clients with aftercare.

Intensive outpatient treatment programs can typically run in the mornings or in the evenings, which means that you would be able to participate in this program while you are working, attending school, or engaging in other daily responsibilities. 

IOP programs are designed to provide more thorough treatment than traditional outpatient programs, while maintaining the flexibility and freedom that is taken away by a residential facility. This means that the group sessions will be longer to ensure that there is enough time to cover all the necessary material. Group sessions tend to be three hours per day, and the frequency of your groups can vary from 3 to 5 days a week.  

Coachella Valley Recovery Center is a Southern California rehab center that can provide you with detoxification and inpatient rehab treatment. We pride ourselves on our holistic approach to treatment and our focus on patients as a whole person.

What Does IOP Entail?

As mentioned above, IOP group sessions tend to last longer than a typical outpatient group session. The topics discussed in IOP groups will resemble the information covered in an inpatient program, such as relapse prevention skills. IOP groups are able to process real-life experiences compared to inpatient groups that provide education about relapse prevention skills. IOP group sessions can include a combination of alternative therapies, addiction education, and group exercises. 

Intensive outpatient programs typically require that you meet with a counselor individually each week. If you or a loved one has been struggling with an alcohol or drug addiction, inpatient treatment could provide invaluable support and education which would benefit your sobriety. 

Coachella Valley Recovery Center can provide detoxification and inpatient rehab services in Southern California. We offer a variety of alternative therapy options that can be added to your treatment plan.

A key difference between partial hospitalization programs and intensive outpatient programs is the length of treatment. Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) tend to be a full day of structured programming, whereas IOP group sessions typically last three hours. Individuals may find it hard to return to work or school while in a PHP. 

Additionally, IOP programs are not viewed as a long-term approach to addiction treatment. Your time in an intensive outpatient program can vary. However, typically members are in IOP for no longer than three months. Partial hospitalization programs may be needed for a more extended period. 

Coachella Valley Recovery Center can provide you with Southern California addiction treatment services. Our treatment program combines traditional treatment approaches such as group and individual therapy, with a holistic approach that addresses all aspects of your life that were impacted by your addiction. If you are one of the many individuals who would benefit from aftercare treatment, our staff can help you locate an intensive outpatient program in your area.

The advantages of IOP

Advantages of IOP Rehabs: Who is an Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program Best For?

There are several benefits that you can gain from an IOP program. The first is that you are able to fulfill your obligations and responsibilities throughout your day. An IOP program can provide you with a safe place to come and talk about the challenges that arise in your day-to-day life and talk through strategies to manage stressors, cravings, and triggers. 

IOP group sessions can decrease feelings of isolation. Many individuals in active addiction distance themselves from supportive people in their lives and may need time to rebuild those relationships. Having group therapy support can be helpful while you work to establish your sober support outside of therapy.

Intensive outpatient programs will give you a thorough education regarding the disease concept of addiction, relapses, and recovery. Individuals living with a mild to moderate substance abuse disorder may benefit from an IOP program if they do not meet the inpatient rehab program criteria.

Individuals who have recently completed a detoxification or an inpatient rehab program can also benefit from an IOP program. Having a continued source of support can be invaluable in early recovery. Returning home from inpatient programs can be more difficult than expected, and there will undoubtedly be unexpected challenges. Having continued support can provide a sense of relief for some.  

Reaching the point in your addiction where you are willing to ask for help and receive help being offered to you can be a turning point in your life. Finding a top-notch addiction treatment program can provide you with the tools and support needed to have a healthy and successful recovery. Coachella Valley Recovery Center can provide you with both detox and inpatient rehab treatment. Additionally, we can help you connect with a Southern California IOP if you want to continue your treatment journey. We invite you to speak with a representative by calling (442)888-6484 today.

Finding IOP After an Inpatient Rehab Program

Coachella Valley Can Help

When you are looking for an intensive outpatient program in Southern California, you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed. There are a lot of factors to consider, and it can be difficult to narrow down which program would be a good fit for you.

For many individuals, two of the main factors that come into play when looking for an intensive outpatient program are the location and the cost. Since you will be living at home, and possibly working or returning to your other responsibilities, you may find it convenient and necessary to be in treatment near home. Your out-of-pocket expenses can also be a factor, especially if you have a high deductible or co-pay. If you are concerned about your financial responsibility, calling your insurance provider can give you a better understanding of what this would look like for you.

While Coachella Valley Recovery Center does not offer an intensive outpatient program, we can help you locate an appropriate treatment provider before you complete our program. Our overall goal is to provide a healthy and supportive environment that helps prepare you for the changes that you will experience as you begin your recovery. 

Many individuals find that the added support of continued care significantly impacts their recovery and find many benefits of continuing care. Take a moment to think about the amount of time that went into the development of your addiction and the length of time you were in active addiction. It is understandable that you would need more than 1 to 3 months of an inpatient treatment program to have a healthy recovery. To learn more about how Coachella Valley Recovery Center can help you, please call (442)888-6484 today.
