Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Treatment
San Diego Addiction Treatment Center
Our Program Can Be As Little As 30 Days And Up To 365 Days
IOP in San Diego
The intensive outpatient program (IOP) at Healthy Life Recovery is designed to help you break the cycle of addiction and help clients transition back into society. Patients in IOP are able to receive partial-day treatment while still residing at home or at a sober living residential facility.
Intensive outpatient programs are a great option for those who are no longer chemically dependent on drugs or alcohol and at high risk for relapse. Read further to learn more about IOP and if it is right for you or your loved one.
Advantages of IOP
An intensive outpatient program can have a number of advantages over residential treatment or lower forms of outpatient treatment. For many people, a residential inpatient treatment program isn’t always feasible. And, standard outpatient programs may not provide enough support and treatment for a person in recovery to maintain sobriety.
Most people have obligations they cannot completely dismiss to enter full-time inpatient treatment. They cannot just leave work or family behind for an extended period of time. Since the person in IOP lives at home and only receives treatment for roughly three hours a day, they can still manage most normal daily life activities.
The best candidates for IOP are those who have a safe and supportive living environment. Those who live in a household with family members or roommates that have a drug or drinking habit are not recommended any form of outpatient treatment, since they will be more susceptible to relapse.
IOPs are also not recommended for people who have severe addictions or co-occurring disorders. Someone with a severe addiction problem should pursue an inpatient detox and at least 30 days of an inpatient rehabilitation program to stabilize their mind and body.
What to Expect From IOP
