Programs at Discovery Transitions

Discovery Transitions offers an intensive outpatient program (IOP) for those who have completed inpatient treatment for substance abuse. It is also for people who have the potential to recover successfully without submitting to hospitalization or a residential program.

Addiction Therapy

Addiction therapy goes much deeper than simply treating the physical problem of chemical dependency on drugs and alcohol. The causes of addiction run deep. Unless underlying issues resolve, abstinence will fail to create reliable recovery. If you ...

Our intensive outpatient program for substance abuse represents a step down from the full-immersion experience of an inpatient program, but offers a continuation of the program components that are vital to achieving reliable long-term recovery. These include, among other things, a variety of group sessions, individual counseling, and family therapy. Additional modalities are available, depending on the individual client’s needs.

Who Can Benefit from an Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program?

Addiction generally follows a predictable downward path. Sometimes, it begins with experimentation and “recreational” use or with medication for pain. However, it develops a life of its own that progressively affects every aspect of the addict’s life. In the early stage, it seems to provide benefits in the form of entertainment, relief from anxiety, depression, or pain. Unfortunately, until subsequent problems pile up, there is little motivation to stop. When substance use begins to look problematic, the potential addict will begin to try to manage his or her consumption. However, addicts often face a common dilemma. Controlled use always seems to fall short of satisfying, and the addictive mind creates a justification for using. The cycle of addiction may be interrupted, on occasion, by attempts at moderation or abstinence. Without help, a true addict will return to using and his or her life will continue to unravel.

Depending on how far down the addict’s life has spiraled, an IOP treatment program might be the ideal solution. It is best for those who have the motivation to participate at the level necessary for success. If substance dependency has been chronic over a long period, and the amounts consumed consistently large, then an inpatient program is probably the more effective choice, especially as it is important to separate the addict from access to drugs.

Intensive outpatient alcohol treatment, as with drug treatment, has the potential to completely turn our clients’ lives around, provided that they provide the willingness to participate and take the actions suggested in our program. Even though we at Discovery Transitions pride ourselves in meeting the highest standards of treatment, IOP therapy can only be as effective as the level of personal involvement a client brings to it.

What Can You Expect during Intensive Outpatient Treatment?

Clients utilizing Discovery Transitions’ intensive outpatient program have the opportunity to participate in groups that promote a safe, caring, and respectful environment. These groups meet 5 days a week. Group therapy includes interpersonal process groups. These help clients resolve problems in relating to other people (problems from which they have attempted to flee by means of addictive substances), specialty groups, psycho-educational groups, and experiential groups.

We believe that family therapy is critical. Not only is it important for the addict’s recovery but also for the sanity of his or her family. During addiction, the sanity of the family has been tested. Sometimes, it is tested beyond endurance over the years of being unwilling co-participants in the disease of addiction.

For those unfamiliar with the 12-Step Program, IOP includes an introduction to the basics. It also introduces clients to a community of recovering addicts and alcoholics who continually demonstrate their preference for a life based on a new set of ideas and principles, free from all substances.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It

  • Discovery Transitions changed my life!! Great food, great staff, wonderful place! Awesome to get to know the amazing clients and see that i was not alone in my recovery. I made friends for life in the short time i got to spend there. Not a better facility anywhere in my opinion!!The team of employees, from the Technicians all the way up to the Owner, all have a patient first mentality.

  • Going to treatment at Discovery Transitions was one of the best programs I've participated in, they helped me get my life back. They have amazing staff and overall good-natured people. They focus on all aspects of counseling, case management, meetings, different types of therapy, including trauma, one on one counseling. This is coming from someone who has been traumatized and neglected. They helped me get to the root of the problem. Which most times can feel very uncomfortable but they provide groups that you participate in and communicate with other addicts and hear their life stories. They really are an organization of team working to help heal the conflicted minds of us addicts that we faced every day. I would highly recommend this treatment program to anyone suffering from substance abuse or mental health.
