What to Expect in Intensive Therapy

In relation to the continuum of care, intensive outpatient treatment refers to the step down after partial hospitalization. At the top of the pyramid is residential or inpatient rehab, where you would spend days and nights without respite for several weeks or months. Partial hospitalization is a full-time outpatient drug rehab program. The only difference between inpatient rehab and a PHP is that you go home at night for the latter.

At Recovery at the Crossroads, intensive outpatient drug rehab involves spending 10 hours per week within the community. This is usually spread out over three or four days to give you time and space to pursue education or employment. An IOP is generally the first opportunity for someone in recovery to get back into the routine of working or studying.

IOP Treatment Programs

During an IOP, you spend time learning about addiction and find out how to make necessary lifestyle changes. You’ll take part in a mixture of therapy, based on what your caseworker and the health care professionals deem appropriate. IOP courses include:

  • Individual therapy
  • Counseling
  • Group therapy
  • Psychoeducation
  • Experiential therapy
  • Music therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Help to find work and education

Who Is Outpatient Rehab Right For?

Intensive outpatient drug rehab is right for people at various stages of their recovery journey. Most frequently, we see people who have just finished a PHP come through our doors. If you’ve been through the first, most intensive stages of the healing process, we can support you the rest of the way.

For some, an IOP is the first step of treatment. This is especially true for individuals who have been through residential rehab previously and fear relapse. For many people, traumatic life events can bring up old patterns. Rehab can help you to regain control over your emotions and behaviors. It also helps you to get back in touch with the spirituality and self-care practices that are absolutely essential to living a healthy life.

Intensive Outpatient Alcohol Rehab

Intensive outpatient alcohol rehab is almost identical to intensive outpatient drug rehab. Alcoholics have the burden of trying to resist a substance that the world views as socially acceptable. We help you to come to terms with the idea of long-term abstinence and coach you about staying strong in social situations.

One of the biggest hurdles to overcoming alcohol use disorder is that people often feel life won’t be any fun without it. Our loving community shows you how much more fun you can have without drink, and as your mind becomes clearer, you’ll see it too.

Step Down to General Outpatient Addiction Treatment

The next stage of your recovery journey is outpatient drug rehab. During intensive and general outpatient addiction treatment, the focus is on rejoining society as a fully functioning member. Human beings are social, and we thrive when we’re contributing to society and feel valued. Sadly, addiction strips many people of their freedom and leaves them on the outskirts of society.

By the time you reach GOP, you’re feeling confident and ready to step back into the community. You still come to Recovery at the Crossroads for one to three hours each week. We lavish support, kind words and wisdom upon you to help you move forward. But by this time, you’re ready to study or work full time.

If you or a loved one need help now please call 888-342-3881 or visit our insurance page to verify if your policy will cover treatment.

What Is General Outpatient Drug Rehab?

General outpatient drug rehab is the least intensive stage on the recovery continuum. It’s an opportunity to relish the security and structure of treatment while living independently. You still have the chance to check in with individual therapy sessions.

However, at this stage, you become a huge asset in group rehab sessions. As someone who’s further down the path of recovery, you’re in an excellent position to help newbies. The accountability and responsibility experienced as a role model have a profoundly positive impact on most people.

Treatment Options

GOP treatment is mainly about maintaining sobriety and cementing your new coping mechanisms as ingrained healthy habits. Treatment options include:

  • Individual therapy
  • Individual counseling
  • Group therapy
  • Experiential therapy
  • Psychoeducation

Is Outpatient Alcohol Rehabilitation Different?

General outpatient rehab for alcohol addiction and for drug addiction are pretty much precisely the same. Although addiction affects people in broadly different ways and manifests for a wide range of reasons, the mechanism is the same for everyone.

Addiction is a condition that causes the brain to prioritize a substance irrationally. There are a variety of psychological and biochemical reasons for this that are entirely beyond your control. However, it is in your power to force yourself to deal with thoughts, feelings, values and beliefs that lead you to use drugs or alcohol in an unsafe way. Most people can’t do it alone, which is why we’re here for you at Recovery at the Crossroads.

Aftercare: Recovery Is an Ongoing Process

Sometimes people take the naive view that rehab is a cure-all for addiction. While this would be wonderful, addiction is a chronic disease. As such, recovery is an ongoing process, and you must never stop making an effort to stay sober. The majority of people who achieve long-term abstinence continue attending group and/or individual therapy for years after rehab, or continue indefinitely.

All of the alumni from Recovery at the Crossroads are lifelong family members. You’ll always have us and your peer support network to turn to, no matter what.
