Many people struggling with addiction and substance abuse have a hard time maintaining their responsibilities while chasing the feelings drugs and alcohol give them. When trying to get sober and rebuild their lives, they often find it difficult to juggle their daily tasks while attending addiction treatment programs. Thankfully, intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) can provide treatment and support while letting them begin to lead a regular life again.
At DeNovo Recovery, we know how important it is to regain your sense of normalcy while continuing to receive support in sobriety. Our IOP can help you learn the skills you need to walk the road to recovery during the day before you return home for the night. Call 816.208.8106 today to find out if an intensive outpatient program could be the missing piece in your recovery plan.
What Is an Intensive Outpatient Program?
An IOP is a type of addiction treatment that offers many of the same services as inpatient treatment, like therapy and counseling, but doesn’t require you to live at the facility. This flexibility means you can continue working, going to school, and meeting your other responsibilities while still getting help for your addiction.
Intensive outpatient programs typically meet several times a week for several hours at a time. An IOP generally is about the same time commitment as a part-time job. While in an intensive outpatient program, you’ll work to address the underlying causes of your addiction and develop tools to cope with triggers and cravings.
Who Benefits from an IOP?
IOPs can be an effective step down from inpatient treatment or a good alternative for people who can’t commit to an inpatient program. It can also be an option for people who have already completed inpatient treatment and need extra support during the early stages of recovery.
An IOP can be especially beneficial if you have a strong support system at home. If you have a spouse, partner, or family member who can help you stay on track, an IOP may be the right fit for you.
