What is an Intensive Outpatient Program?

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at United Recovery Project in Florida is a structured and flexible treatment option designed to provide comprehensive care for individuals seeking recovery from substance use disorders. It offers a step-down level of care that bridges the gap between residential treatment and independent living.

In IOP, clients attend therapy sessions and counseling multiple times a week, while having the freedom to maintain their daily routines and responsibilities. This program is ideal for those who require a higher level of support than traditional outpatient treatment but do not need 24/7 supervision. Our IOP focuses on individualized care, addressing each client’s unique needs and challenges. The team of experienced professionals at United Recovery Project provides evidence-based therapies and holistic approaches to help clients gain coping skills, relapse prevention techniques, and emotional support.

United Recovery Project’s Intensive Outpatient Program empowers clients to build a strong foundation for lasting recovery while offering the flexibility needed to accommodate personal commitments and obligations. It’s a transformative journey towards healing and embracing a fulfilling, substance-free life.

Do You Need An Intensive Outpatient Program?

Drug and alcohol addiction can cause damage to your physical and mental health, finances, and relationships. Some of the signs that you might benefit from this level of substance abuse treatment include:

  • Using prescription medications in ways other than as prescribed
  • Feeling like you need drugs or alcohol to get through the day
  • Problems at work, at home, or at school as a result of drug or alcohol use
  • Physical or mental health issues resulting from substance use
  • Relapsing after a period of sobriety

Our intensive outpatient program in South Florida is ideal for those who have been through drug and alcohol detox, residential treatment, or a partial hospitalization program. While IOP programming can be similar to PHP, IOP allows clients to live in the comfort of their own homes and maintain a job. A solid foundation for recovery, where you’ve begun to develop healthy coping skills to avoid relapse, is essential for an IOP. Guests in our IOP should have a supportive, drug-and-alcohol-free living situation. They can also reside in our sober living housing, where they’ll live with others in recovery.

What To Expect In Our Intensive Outpatient Program

Unlike traditional inpatient programs, our intensive outpatient program allows guests to take advantage of the many services offered by United Recovery Project while continuing to live at home. Individuals taking advantage of this program will have the structure which is so important for people at the beginning of recovery, but will not have to leave their loved ones or the comfort of their homes.

Guests will participate in individual, group, and family therapy to help deal with the issues causing stress in their lives. Group therapy is particularly important in early recovery, and clients will learn about 12-step recovery, anger management, and communication skills, among other important issues. Once individuals have completed our partial hospitalization program, they will work with our staff members to determine which follow-up treatment is best.

Other addiction therapy programs and services we offer include:

  • Equine therapy
  • Trips to local beaches
  • Life skills training to help with employment and daily living activities
  • Relapse prevention education
  • Creative therapies, including art therapy and music therapy
  • Nutrition workshops to help our guests become their healthiest selves

We also offer dual diagnosis treatment to help those struggling with co-occurring addiction and mental health issues.

How Does IOP Differ From PHP?

At United Recovery Project, we understand the importance of providing tailored addiction treatment options. Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) offers a flexible and effective approach to recovery that differs from our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP).

While both programs are structured and comprehensive, IOP allows individuals to maintain some level of independence and flexibility in their daily lives. IOP typically involves fewer hours of treatment per week than PHP, making it ideal for those who require a more flexible schedule or have certain responsibilities they need to fulfill, such as work, school, or family commitments.

In IOP, individuals attend therapy and counseling sessions to address the complexities of addiction while residing in their own home. This provides a seamless transition from the intensity of residential treatment or PHP to a more independent lifestyle while still receiving vital support and guidance.

Our skilled team of addiction specialists works closely with individuals in our IOP, tailoring treatment plans to meet their unique needs and goals. Our focus remains on empowering individuals to overcome challenges, build coping skills, and develop relapse prevention strategies, all within the framework of IOP’s flexible and supportive structure.
