Outpatient / IOP Treatment

 

Addiction recovery is a process, and outpatient treatment is one step along the way. At R&R Recovery, clients can find the level of support they need to continue moving forward in recovery through outpatient and intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment programs. These programs are a good fit for individuals who have completed residential treatment and could benefit from continued structure and support as they integrate back into the community.

How Does Outpatient Treatment Differ from Residential Treatment?

 

While there are similarities between the two programs, the main difference is that clients in outpatient treatment programs do not stay at the facility 24/7. They attend different groups and therapies for a few hours per day several days a week, but at night they return home or to a sober living facility. Clients have more independence but also greater accountability for the choices they make to support their continued sobriety.

How Does IOP Treatment Work?

 

Clients enrolled in R&R Recovery’s IOP or outpatient programs receive the same high quality, person-centered approach to care as they would in any of the organization’s other programs. Upon admission, an individualized treatment plan is created that is tailored to each client’s unique needs and goals. It takes into account where they currently are in the recovery process and what services may be most beneficial.

IOP treatment incorporates not only group and individual therapy but also activities that focus on communication, problem solving, coping skills, vocational training, educational seminars, and relapse prevention. Because clients are out and about in the community, there is a focus on real-world skills to effectively manage the challenges they face.

As issues arise, clients can discuss them with therapists, counselors, and peers in order to promote healthy decision making and coping skills. They can immediately apply what are they are learning as they return home each day.

 

What Approaches to Treatment are Used?

 

R&R Recovery uses an integral approach to treatment because there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Clients all go through their own experiences, and a therapeutic modality that may work well for one person may not be as effective for the next. That is why it is important to take a multifaceted approach. Treatment at R&R Recovery includes:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy
  • Person-Centered Therapy
  • Gestalt Therapy
  • Psychotherapy
  • Psychodynamic Techniques

In addition, clients are often involved in other evidence-based and trauma-informed approaches to care including:

  • Mindfulness
  • Experiential Therapy
  • Art Therapy
  • Music Therapy

If you are ready to keep moving forward in addiction recovery and building a substance-free lifestyle you love, outpatient or IOP treatment may be an effective next step in your journey. Turn to R&R Recovery for individualized care that incorporates diverse therapeutic modalities to meet you where you are in the recovery process and support long-term sobriety.
