Intensive Outpatient Alcohol Treatment

Table Of Contents

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 characterized by the inability to control your drinking and your inability to abstain. Alcoholism is a progressive disease. However, the drinker doesn’t recognize that they have crossed a threshold until after they have lost the ability to stop. 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 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 refers to 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 are damaged, health is ignored, 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. As this new perspective develops, alcohol will lose its grip on you.

Discovery Transitions’ Intensive Outpatient Alcohol Treatment Program

Despite the discomforts of quitting drinking, it’s easier to stop than to stay stopped, so our intensive outpatient treatment program for alcohol 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 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’ intensive outpatient treatment 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.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It

  • 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.
