Intensive Outpatient Alcohol Treatment (IOP) is a solution for anyone facing a problem with alcohol. If you suspect that your drinking is affecting your life, Discovery Transitions can help. Alcoholism is defined as an inability to control the amount once having started to drink, combined with an inability to abstain altogether. While the momentum of problem drinking increases over time, the drinker doesn’t usually recognize that he or she has crossed a threshold until long after they have lost the ability to stop without help. Meanwhile, the negative consequences of drinking continue to pile up and become astonishingly difficult to solve.
Intensive Outpatient Program for Alcohol Abuse
Discovery Transitions’ intensive outpatient program for alcohol abuse can help you turn things around. Through a combination of group sessions, individual counseling and 12-step work, we help you get to the heart of the matter: the issues underlying any drinking problem, and how to heal at a fundamental level so that your problem can be solved.
Alcoholism has been called a disease of loneliness. The problem-drinker often drinks to a point of isolation, and can feel alone even in the company of others. Relationships become strained or damaged, health may be ignored or impaired and life in general can seem like an adversarial, me-against-the-world ordeal. Intensive outpatient therapy will bring you to a new way of looking at yourself and the world so that your new and deeper understanding will relieve the stress and frustration of coping with everyday life. As this new perspective develops, alcohol will lose its grip on you.
