An addiction to alcohol or substances can be a destructive force that negatively affects people from all walks of life. No matter how strong someone can appear, it can be extremely difficult for someone to ask for help. That’s where intensive outpatient treatment comes in. Compass Recovery can provide tools for someone suffering from addiction to become a happier and more prosperous version of themselves. We stress that our clients get to the root cause of their addiction by taking accountability for their own recovery so that the impact of treatment will last for many years. 

What Is Intensive Outpatient Treatment?

It can be difficult for people with addiction issues to put their entire lives on hold and spend an extended period of time in an inpatient facility. We at Compass Recovery understand. For certain clients, the right solution is an intensive outpatient treatment program. Intensive outpatient treatment is formulated to help those whose addiction might not be extreme or for those who have relapsed and are eager to get back on the right path to recovery. Also, an intensive outpatient treatment plan offers clients the opportunity to attend several therapy sessions each week in our addiction treatment center while continuing to live in the comfort and safety of their homes.

What Are Some Advantages of Intensive Outpatient Treatment?

An IOP is an addiction recovery program that offers many benefits. The advantages of an IOP include:

  • Flexibility of services – We want our services to be available when our clients can take advantage of them.
  • Cost of services – Often, outpatient care is less expensive than comprehensive inpatient care. 
  • Support network development – With an IOP, clients have more contact with friends, colleagues, and family members. This can lead to a stronger support team that helps a client with his or her recovery.
  • Individual therapy sessions – In these sessions, clients can work to discover the roots of addiction and learn coping mechanisms to help future sobriety.

What Happens After I Complete the Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program?

One of the most crucial parts of the recovery process is what happens after a client completes the intensive outpatient treatment program. This part, known as “aftercare”, is how our clients maintain their sobriety long after they have left our facility. Also, an aftercare plan helps our clients to be prepared to face challenges to their recovery and to learn techniques to maintain their progress. Aftercare includes services such as 12-step meetings, counseling, and sober living. Our counselors at Compass Recovery will help our clients determine which types of aftercare would be right for them so that the values learned in our intensive outpatient treatment program will endure for years to come.
