Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
The Intensive Outpatient Program at 7 Summit Pathways Treatment and Recovery Center provides our patients with the structure and support they need in order to live a healthy, sober life. This can be a challenging and even scary time for many patients, but we show the same commitment regarding our IOP program that we do when patients receive treatment inside our facility.
We understand that career and family obligations can vary, so we offer two IOP program schedule options:
Is an Intensive Outpatient Program for Substance Abuse Right for You?
Typically, an Intensive Outpatient Program is designed for people who have already finished a Residential Program. There are, however, some cases where a patient can immediately go into an IOP program. We will have a thorough, detailed conversation with you so that you make the best possible choice.
Just like our Residential Programs, our IOP program is based on The 7 Dimensions of Wellness. These include:
- Physical Wellness
- Emotional Wellness
- Social Wellness
- Spiritual Wellness
- Environmental Wellness
- Occupational Wellness
- Intellectual Wellness
We know that it’s not enough for a patient to simply stop using a drug. You have probably gone through the detoxification process, as well as behavioral therapy, but these are typically not sufficient on their own to bring about a true Recovery. The most effective way to completely heal is a balanced, comprehensive approach.
You’ll find exactly that in our Intensive Outpatient Program for substance abuse. We will help you identify the causes of your Substance Use Disorder and work with you to help you “open up” about your problem. Many people find that being able to talk about their Substance Use Disorder is extremely therapeutic, both to their individual counselors as well as other members of their group sessions.
How our Intensive Outpatient Program for Substance Abuse Works
IOP programs are fairly similar for those who have developed a Substance Use Disorder. In most instances, patients attend classes multiple times per week, with each class lasting about three hours. These groups will usually meet from four to six weeks, but meeting times are designed to be flexible enough to accommodate work, school and family schedules.
Here are just a few of the components of the typical Intensive Outpatient Program.
- Family Sessions — Since Substance Use Disorders not only affect the addict, but also his or her entire family, we provide family sessions to help educate your loved ones on what you’re going through.
- Group Sessions — Group counseling helps you build trust in your peers, as well as compassion. It shows you that you’re not alone, and that there are others going through the same thing.
- Relapse Prevention — We help provide you with the tools you’ll need to identify the signs of a potential relapse. We’ll also show you the coping skills needed to help keep a relapse from occurring.
