IOP Drug and Alcohol Treatment Programs

Intensive Outpatient Alcohol Treatment (IOP) is a solution for anyone facing a problem with alcohol. With outpatient rehabs, individuals have the opportunity to get help for their disorder without interfering with daily responsibilities like work, school, and family obligations. Alcoholism is characterized by the inability to control your drinking and your inability to abstain. It is a progressive disorder. If you suffer from a drinking problem, you are not alone. Our treatment providers will be able to discuss rehab options that best fit your needs, as well as walk you through the entire recovery process. You owe it to yourself to live a healthy, fulfilling, and alcohol-free life.

Intensive Outpatient Program for Alcohol Abuse

Discovery Transitions’ IOP drug and alcohol treatmen program for alcohol abuse can help you turn things around. Through group sessions, individual counseling, and 12-step work, we help you get to the heart of the matter. We address any underlying issues and help you to heal at a fundamental level.

Alcoholism, now known as alcohol use disorder, is a condition in which a person has a desire or physical need to consume alcohol, even though it has a negative impact on their life. The problem being, it involves relationships that are damaged, unhealthy practices, and life can seem like a “me-against-the-world” ordeal. Intensive outpatient therapy will bring you to a new way of looking at yourself and the world. Your new and deeper understanding will relieve the stress and frustration of coping with everyday life.

Discovery Transition’s IOP Drug and Alcohol Treatment Program

Despite the discomforts of quitting drinking, it’s easier to stop than to stay stopped, so our IOP alcohol program focuses at first on the difficulty of remaining abstinent. Because of Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome, a variety of symptoms arise that can lead the recovering alcoholic back to a drink. Mood swings, irritability and impatience, disturbed sleep, low enthusiasm, tiredness, anger, and frustration could cause you to drink. Without help, the inevitable relapse can result in another cycle of problem drinking and its consequences. Most relapses are worse than the previous one and are quickly followed with remorse.

Discovery Transitions’ IOP drug and alcohol treatment will help you deal with the symptoms of PAWS, essentially enabling you to cope with them until, as recovery progresses, they subside. Eventually, life’s challenges will be just that: the ups and downs of existence that most people accept and respond to appropriately, and you will too.

Often, alcoholism goes hand-in-hand with drug problems, and Discovery Transitions offers an intensive outpatient program for substance abuse. Each client receives an individualized treatment plan by taking a preliminary assessment.

Discovery Transitions’ IOP alcohol program for alcohol matches or exceeds nationally accepted standards, and it utilizes a combination of proven strategies. Group sessions and individual counseling make up the core of the program. Physical and mental health, coping strategies, family and interpersonal issues, relapse prevention, and creative play are all part of the healing process. At its core is an emphasis on developing a new outlook, spiritual in nature, which will do far more than simply solve your alcohol problem.

Intensive Outpatient Therapy Alcohol Addiction Treatment 

What Can You Expect from IOT Alcohol Addiction Therapy? 

Treatment may vary, but you can expect a lower amount of interaction or supervision from therapy professionals. This doesn’t mean that your treatment is of lower quality than the therapy provided to in-house patients. You can still look forward to intense, personalized treatment to help you overcome your dependency on alcohol. 

Outpatient programs usually require a few hours a week of your time. Once you enter an IOT program, you can expect to participate for 12 to 16 weeks before you can move on to a lower level of care. 

What Are the Requirements of IOT Alcohol Addiction Therapy? 

You don’t need to do anything other than make a commitment to yourself to show up for the meetings or appointments. Naturally, we do require that your home environment remains alcohol-free. 

What Are the Benefits of an IOT Program?

There are many benefits to joining an IOT program in your journey to sobriety. For starters, it makes easing back into your “outside” life much easier should you leave a rehabilitation center. An IOT program is designed to lessen the culture shock that often trips up people who transition from a rehab center back into society, providing support and tools to navigate this step with more control and confidence. 

Another major benefit of an IOP program is that this type of treatment allows you to continue with your life. You can be with your family, attend work, meet other responsibilities, and engage in personal hobbies that make you happy. All while continuing to receive the treatment and support you need to overcome your alcohol addiction. 

Countless people have benefited from IOT programs. We invite you to take this powerful step for yourself and your family and work towards the independent life that you deserve.
