A Better Today Recovery Services can help you find an intensive outpatient program (IOP) for those who have graduated and need the extended treatment. Often held in the evenings, these group discussions focus on teaching healthy coping mechanisms for daily stressors and relapse prevention.
In active addiction, isolated behaviors are common and often contributes to the depth of the addiction. Many who graduate from a drug and alcohol rehab program run the risk of falling back into those bad habits.
They are forced them to deal with stressors and cravings all by themselves. Intensive outpatient surrounds you with people who care, know what you are going through, and encourage positive thinking and routines when you need it the most.
Effective approaches to intensive outpatient focus on building a strong support network and educating patients about addiction as a disease. Developing a solid support network with therapy sessions and fellowship obligations are important and IOP can ensure that you have enough information to keep you on the journey of recovery.
In these programs, patients are offered the opportunity to continue one-on-one sessions with their therapist. This opportunity allows you to focus on your recovery, make changes to your aftercare plan with guidance from your therapist, and track your progress with a person you already trust.
These individualized sessions can be key to those struggling with co-occurring disorder and need the direction to overcome symptoms. Learn more about the effectiveness of evening intensive outpatient programs fresh out of substance abuse treatment.
