Intensive outpatient therapy programs
- Intensive outpatient treatment centers offer treatment for at least 2 hours a day and 3 days a week, up to 8 hours of treatment 6 days a week. Intensive outpatient treatment can be coupled with sober living for those that cannot afford to enter into an inpatient treatment center. Most intensive outpatient programs focus mainly on relapse prevention, to help ensure that the client doesn’t have a ‘fall back episode’ during the treatment process. The treatment schedule is varied so the client can continue their daily work or school schedules.
- This type of treatment program was originally designed for patients that would require more of medical intervention and ongoing medical supervision during the outpatient treatment program. Requiring that the client stays in a sober living environment with full-time supervision during the program and usually meetings in offices daily or in a hospital setting 3-6 days a week for up to 8 hours a day. Partial hospitalization treatment centers are usually less money than an inpatient treatment program but require the same type of housing commitment while undergoing treatment.
- Group therapy is usually combined with other types of therapies in the early stages of recovery to help the balance of treatment and to allow for interaction and support from others that are going through the same addiction treatment. Usually consisting of 12 step meetings or AA/NA programs, group therapy gives the individual more support at the time when they could use it the most.
- Counseling sessions are scheduled 1- 3 times a week for usually an hour a day to ensure that the client has a minimal disruption in their daily work or school schedules.
