What to Expect from an IOP in Palm Springs
Recovery from a substance use disorder takes work and commitment. Before treatment starts, it is crucial to understand the unique challenges that each client faces. A professional treatment team with training and expertise in treating addiction will conduct a thorough assessment to identify the right level of care for each client. These evaluations help both the client and the clinician to work together to design a personalized treatment plan effectively. Every client can, and should, have a say in what will have the most significant impact on their treatment and recovery.
An intensive outpatient program (IOP) can help you overcome addiction and achieve lifelong recovery. Clients can participate in group counseling in mixed-gender or gender-specific groups depending on their needs, recovery goals, and their comfort level. An IOP usually consists of substance abuse treatment on-site at a treatment facility a few days per week for around 3 hours each day. Licensed clinicians lead IOP treatments with a focus on a number of areas, including exploring past traumas, addiction education, family involvement, co-occurring mental health issues, and skills for coping and relapse prevention.
The goals of an IOP include:
- Recognizing triggers and learning coping strategies
- Prioritizing your well-being
- Having a strong support network including doctors, family, and friends
- Avoiding relapse
- A return to a healthy and productive life, free of drugs and alcohol
