Night Time Addiction Treatment 

Many people struggle with substance abuse but find traditional inpatient rehab programs impractical. However, the cultural image of spending months at a treatment facility isn’t the only way a person can tackle addiction. Instead of putting your life on hold for months, you can attend night IOP sessions in the evening and complete rehab after work.

Recovery at the Crossroads prides itself on being one of the only addiction treatment centers in New Jersey that offers Night IOP.  Read on to learn more about our program and how we can help you overcome addiction.

What Is Night IOP?

IOP is an acronym for intensive outpatient program, a type of addiction treatment where you continue to live in your own home. Rather than living full-time at a treatment center, you attend a certain number of sessions and hours each week.

An outpatient treatment program will usually capitalize on this flexibility by offering morning or night courses. Night IOP treatment programs schedule sessions in the evening so people can attend rehab after work. While different people may find one program or another is more suitable for them, IOP is an invaluable option for overcoming drug addiction. Compared to the alternatives, it has key advantages that will make it the first choice of many.

What makes our Addiction Treatment Different?

While there’s a stereotype that inpatient drug rehab is the end-all of addiction treatment, this isn’t quite true. Some people will indeed need to attend detox and months of treatment to get clean, but these severe addiction cases are relatively uncommon. Studies show that for most patients, IOP is just as effective as inpatient treatment. Meanwhile, it has a lower cost than inpatient rehab and doesn’t require any loss of income on your part.

You also have to take into account the unique benefits of IOP. The heightened level of flexibility makes it possible to integrate IOP care into your day-to-day life while continuing to work. Whereas it can be quite stressful to leave an inpatient program and return to independent living, IOP enables a much more seamless transition. Furthermore, there’s no set date for it to end and you can complete the program sooner or later based on individual progress. You also have the option of moving into standard outpatient care first if you’d prefer a staggered transition.

IOP vs. General Outpatient Programs

While standard outpatient has slightly greater flexibility than IOP, this can be too much of a good thing. The greater commitment and higher treatment level of IOP are important in the early stages of drug rehab. This difference in intensity is what gives each of these treatment types their utility, with standard outpatient care being more useful as a type of post-treatment aftercare. Intensive outpatient care is more suitable as an overall, primary care choice.

How Intensive Outpatient Treatment Can Aid Recovery

Intensive outpatient programs rely on frequent sessions to help members work on their mental health and overcome alcohol and drug problems. These support groups take place with respect to each patient’s privacy and are entirely safe, confidential opportunities to seek help and emotional support. We combine various types of care to help patients learn coping skills, identify co-occurring disorders and gain control of their lives.

Flexible Substitute for Residential Treatment

Traditional stays at inpatient rehab facilities are often impractical for people who don’t need such a high level of care. If you’re seeking treatment in the earlier stages of addiction, outpatient care can achieve equally good outcomes.

Follow-Up to Residential Addiction Treatment

Intensive outpatient care as an alternative to residential treatment is one option, but they can also go together. Moving out of inpatient rehab at a treatment center can be quite a stressful transition without the right support. A comprehensive treatment plan that transitions from inpatient to IOP and from IOP to standard can be a good path to recovery.

Example Treatment Methods

There are numerous modalities we rely on in the course of treating a person’s substance use disorder. While past methods of treating addiction focused on shame and abstinence, modern methods take a more compassionate approach and stem from deeper understanding.

Addiction is rarely about the drugs in question and tends to have more to do with an underlying problem. When someone spirals into addiction, it’s typically because they’re using a substance to self-medicate or avoid this problem. Some of the methods that different practices emphasize to deal with addiction include:

  • Individual therapy
  • Counseling
  • Group therapy
  • Psycho-education
  • Experiential therapy
  • Music therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Assistance with work and education

The Importance of Therapy for Substance Abuse Treatment

Studies show there’s a deep link between mental health issues and substance use disorder. In particular, trauma and addiction have an incredibly close link. The majority of people with an addiction have suffered severe trauma, either recently or in their childhood. Sometimes mental health issues and addiction are so closely intertwined that the care provided should reflect this dual diagnosis.

Dual diagnosis is the term for someone having a mental health disorder as well as a substance use issue. While mental illness is a common risk factor for addiction, some conditions in particular such as depression, anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder are particularly common among those with a drug addiction. In each case, drug abuse either stems from a lack of treatment for the underlying condition or is an attempt to treat the condition itself. 

This connection is why it’s so important to focus on therapy and underlying conditions during addiction treatment. Shame-oriented treatment and a simple focus on abstinence set people up to relapse by failing to help them. By helping people untangle and overcome the underlying conditions in their lives, it becomes possible to help them achieve an enduring recovery. 

Paying for Rehab After Work

Many people aren’t aware that today, the law requires insurance companies to cover behavioral and mental health treatment. As a result, it’s likely you can use your insurance to pay to attend rehab after work. Since IOP care is more affordable than inpatient treatment, your insurance is likely to go further as well. Get in touch with the Recovery at the Crossroads team to find out more details about paying for drug rehab with insurance.
