Intensive outpatient treatment, or IOP, is a service that offers you a higher level of care. It is an excellent option for those who aren’t quite ready to transition into outpatient treatment after they have completed an inpatient program for drug and alcohol rehab. You will have frequent appointments with your therapist and participate in various support groups as you participate with IOP. You will find the amount of support you receive to be exactly what you need during this critical time in your recovery.
Co-occurring disorders are quite often what lead to addictions, and it’s so important for you to receive treatment for them at the same time as you receive treatment for your addiction. There are a number of different co-occurring disorders that women often experience alongside addictions. Quite often, it’s not enough to just go to a women’s drug and alcohol treatment center. To improve the outcome for the patient any co-occurring disorders needs to be treated first.
If you have been through an inpatient treatment program before, then you undoubtedly understand the importance of group therapy as a part of your treatment. Group therapy allows you meet and connect with other women who are facing the same struggles in their addictions that you are. Together, you can learn, grow and depend on one another for support during a time when you need it the most.
Continuing to work with a therapist in an IOP setting is just as important as it was during your inpatient stay. Your therapist will assist you with continued healing from the issues that led to your addiction, and any co-occurring disorders you may be suffering from will be addressed during this time as well.
