Discovery Transitions offers a variety of addiction treatment programs for those suffering from drug and alcohol addiction.
If you or a loved one is experiencing problems in which drugs and/or alcohol may be a factor, Discovery Transitions’ intensive outpatient program for substance abuse has a solution for you. Because denial and rationalization are fundamental to the problem of drug abuse, life problems often become overwhelming before the individual is ready to admit that he or she needs help.
Discovery Transitions offers an intensive outpatient treatment program specifically designed to meet the needs of anyone who needs help in breaking the cycle of addiction. Whether you are new to addiction—perhaps through the use and subsequent dependency on pain medication—or a recreational user turned addict, intensive outpatient therapy can help you turn your life around. Similarly, if alcohol is your primary problem, Discovery Transitions offers an intensive outpatient alcohol treatment program that will free you from the urge to drink.
Intensive Outpatient Drug Treatment (IOP)
An initial assessment will determine if Intensive Outpatient Drug Treatment is appropriate for your needs. Relevant factors such as personal and family history, type and amount of drugs used and for how long, physical health, other mental health issues, and present circumstances (family, work, housing, legal, etc.) are considered in order to make certain that you can derive maximum benefit from IOP drug treatment. In some cases, if the extent of physical dependency is severe, referral for appropriate detoxification may be indicated.
Discovery Transitions’ Intensive Outpatient Drug Treatment program is based on evidence-based therapies that have been clinically proven to be effective in overcoming addiction. Our IOP program comprises a suite of therapeutic applications. We take pride in the successes of our alumni, many of who return to share their experience with our current clients.
Intensive Outpatient Program for Substance Abuse
When you are new to recovery, everything seems strange. Our intensive outpatient program for substance abuse has been designed to be immersive, informative and interesting. Because we consider the problem of addiction to be threefold— physical, mental and spiritual—we discuss and promote growth in each of these areas. As days and then weeks pass without using, the physical effect of drugs lessens and the mind opens to the possibilities of recovery. Stopping using, despite its discomforts, is relatively easy. Staying stopped is another matter altogether.
Basic to any effective program for recovery is an understanding that addiction is by definition a problem that the addict cannot overcome without help. As we look at the basic definition of addiction—continued use in spite of negative consequences—the individual desires to stop and finds that stopping is not the issue: staying stopped is the real dilemma. As addiction and/or alcoholism progresses, even the temporary solution of use is ineffective. At Discovery Transitions, we look carefully at the fundamental problem of powerlessness, because the desire to change, and the willingness to take the necessary actions, is based on the degree to which an individual has given up the idea of handling the problem alone.
