San Diego Outpatient Rehab
Intensive Outpatient Program
Types of Outpatient Treatment
There is a spectrum of the intensity for the broad term outpatient treatment. These treatments are usually made of:
Outpatient day programs, which have the most intense schedule. The patient meets with the program anywhere from five to seven days per week.
Intensive outpatient programs offer more flexibility than day programs. The patient meets with the program from three to four days per week. This program is suitable for a patient whose work, school, or home life has caused them to pursue treatment.
Continuing or aftercare programs consist of counseling or support groups and meet about one a week.
Benefits of Outpatient Treatment
It is estimated that 60% of people who have been treated for addiction will relapse once they leave rehab. The stress of resuming work, family reintegration, and familiar locations can all be significant risk factors for addicts in early recovery.
Intensive outpatient rehabs can be a regular standard to remain engaged and focused on recovery during this period. Clients are continuously learning effective coping mechanisms to achieve recovery. They have the opportunity to start applying these skills as they begin to function in their day-to-day lives.
When selecting the advantages of one treatment approach, the individual’s needs, resources, and the likelihood of success must be taken into consideration.
Benefits of outpatient treatment include:
Higher levels of flexibility in scheduling and treatment center programs.
Ability to live at home and continue to focus on family.
Freedom to maintain employment or education.
Lower cost than inpatient rehab.
Effectiveness in treating mild to moderate substance use disorders.
Why Outpatient Rehab?
Many clients struggle with progression out of treatment settings. The stress of resuming work, family reintegration, and being back in familiar locations and situations can be major risk factors for addicts in early recovery. Intensive outpatient rehabs can be a regular touchstone to remain engaged and focused on recovery during this period. Clients continue to learn effective coping mechanisms in intensive outpatient rehab and have a direct opportunity to start applying these skills as they begin to function in their day-to-day lives.

What to Expect?
Outpatient (OP) Care is the aftercare that clients attend when they have completed the program at Healthy Life Recovery. Every OP treatment plan is specific to the client’s needs and personal schedule. Clients have the option to continue with group therapy 1-3 days a week with ongoing individual therapy and case management sessions. Clients also have the opportunity for ongoing medical and psychiatric appointments when attending outpatient aftercare.
Intensive outpatient programs will typically meet during the weekdays. Many treatment facilities offer daytime, as well as evening programs, that require sessions lasting for a few hours. During the scheduled meeting time, patients will meet with groups and have breaks in between each session.
Common types of group sessions for an IOP include:
Skill-development groups which can include relapse prevention, stress management, and assertiveness training techniques.
Psychoeducational groups, low-key, time-limited groups.
Interpersonal process groups which can include single-interest groups and family/couples groups.
Support groups with people who are working on similar problems, such as the 12-step program.
The therapies used in IOP include:
The goal of drug tests is not necessarily to “catch” them in the act of using. More so to reassure that participants are adhering to the program’s rules. It is also important to protect other participating members from substance use. If someone is using, it could be a sign that the individual may need a higher level of treatment.
When is Inpatient Treatment Better?
Inpatient treatment is a more extensive approach to addiction treatment. Also known as residential care, inpatient treatment provides around-the-clock care by medical professionals in a non-hospital setting. It does not possess the same flexibility as an outpatient treatment program.
People who will more likely benefit from an inpatient program are not mentally strong enough to resist negative influences. Additionally, an individual who does not have a reliable support system in their home environment would also be a good candidate. The choice ultimately comes down to the patient’s situation and should be a joint decision with an addiction specialist.
How Long Does it Last?
Our rehab facility in San Diego provides individualized treatment to help you achieve recovery while maintaining a healthy life. Our Intensive Outpatient Rehab Program is exactly what a newly sober addict needs to be successful outside of a rehab facility. Especially as they embark on this new and exciting chapter of their life.
The holistic treatment stigma can lead to individuals not receiving complete addiction treatment. Holistic methods can help with the mind, body, and soul.
Music therapy can be used as a holistic method in conjunction with standard methods of treatment to improve overall mental health.
