Attending an intensive outpatient program is recommended as part of a well-rounded treatment plan that targets drug addiction and alcoholism. Long-term sobriety requires ongoing, intensive treatment and a strong support network. Intensive outpatient programs on Long Island and out-of-state provide clients with continued care and support through a convenient yet powerful addiction treatment program in an IOP level of care.
When clients attend an intensive outpatient program, they are able to develop the skills and relationships needed to sustain recovery from alcohol and other drug use while keeping up with job, school, and family commitments. Most IOP’s offer a day/night treatment program, giving clients the opportunity to attend treatment sessions in the morning or evening.
A set of core services is essential to all intensive outpatient treatment efforts and should be a standard part of the treatment package for every client (NCBI). An intensive outpatient addiction treatment program is a good fit for addicts and alcoholics that need structure and support in their recovery process. The main components of intensive outpatient treatment generally include:
Psychotherapists/addiction specialists on-site
Individual counseling sessions
Network of recovery resources
Small client-to-therapist ratio in process groups
Collaboration with sober living residences
Family involvement in the recovery process
Random drug and alcohol screenings
Strong aftercare support
