It can be a challenge to determine the treatment program that’s right for you. One aspect of this involves the level of care that suits your present situation. The level of addiction, from mild to moderate to severe, plays a role in this decision. Many clients who choose Fresh Start Recovery Center in Maryland begin their road to recovery with an intensive outpatient program (IOP). Reach out to Fresh Start today at 833.625.0398, and a trained professional will be glad to assist you in determining the right treatment options for you or your loved one.
Do I Need an Intensive Outpatient Program?
In an intensive outpatient program, Fresh Start’s clients learn healthy coping skills and real-world strategies that allow them to maintain long-term sobriety. What follows are several factors to keep in mind if you are considering choosing an IOP:
- Personal responsibilities such as work, school, or childcare are keeping you from entering a rehab program
- You have already been treated in a residential inpatient treatment program
- You have already participated in a partial hospitalization program (PHP)
- Concerns related to the financial burden of residential inpatient care
- You are ready to return to your everyday responsibilities but need to continue treatment
- You hope to further develop a strong support network
Start rebuilding your personal life and mending relationships with family and friends right away. When you choose an IOP, you continue to live at home while engaging in daily treatment. IOP treatment allows clients to find recovery support in their local community instead of traveling for treatment or feeling like they’re putting their life on hold while at a residential rehab.
Why You Should Consider Fresh Start’s IOP in Maryland
Fresh Start has designed our IOP in Maryland to provide clients with the necessary tools and skills for sober living.
In treatment, clients learn coping methods to deal with real-life situations and high-risk triggers that might put them at risk for relapse. Learning relapse prevention techniques that help fight off cravings and temptation are an essential part of recovery work at Fresh Start.
Group therapy is a valuable resource as peers in recovery, many others have similar experiences of addiction to share, making it clear that you are not alone. Learning from and, eventually, learning to provide support for others facing similar issues with addiction, is an empowering experience clients gain during an IOP.
During your IOP, part of your treatment plan will include one-on-one sessions with a therapist. Your therapist will help you develop your treatment plan as it evolves, provide structure, information that will help you reflect and become more self-aware, and provide accountability that will help keep you on the right track.
Addiction is a disease that isolates its victims. During an IOP, clients begin the process of mending personal relationships that have been strained or made dysfunctional as a result of your substance abuse disorder. This involves educating your family about addiction and finding effective strategies to promote long-term recovery.
During a client’s IOP, family and friends have access to family support groups where they can interact with members of other families in similar situations. This will help your loved ones become a more useful and positive resource to aid in your long-term recovery.
