Ebb Tide Treatment Centers’ Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) was developed to address a variety of addiction needs and is an excellent treatment option for many individuals. The IOP level of care is a perfect example of our mission, which is to help bridge the gap between treatment and recovery.
Intensive outpatient therapy is about helping our clients learn how to stay sober, while dealing with the demands of the real world. While you are at Ebb Tide’s IOP for addiction treatment, you will be given more freedom, because it’s important to learn life skills that will help you throughout sobriety, while still maintaining the “safety net” provided by the structure and support that a treatment program offers.
Who Benefits from an Intensive Outpatient Program?
Inpatient addiction treatment is a highly structured therapeutic program for those individuals who require that type of environment in the earlier stages of their recovery. However, nobody can stay at the Inpatient Level of Care forever. The very point of recovery is to live a full and abundant life, free from the bondage of drugs and/or alcohol. Therefore, as the addict and/or alcoholic’s mind start to heal, IOP provides another, less restrictive level of care. Individuals in IOP are often living at home, or may have transitions to a sober living environment, and are often working, while they continue to attend addiction therapy.
This level of treatment is also highly recommended and suitable for those individuals who do not presently require an Inpatient level of care. Those who have recently discovered that their drug or alcohol abuse is beginning to cause problems in their life can also greatly benefit from this form of addiction treatment. It gives these clients the ability to focus on their recovery, while still having the the ability to work and see loved ones.
It has been shown that mixing genders can distracting and detrimental to individuals in early treatment. Ebb Tide Treatment Centers has gender specific facilities which enables our clients to devote their full attention to recovery. We believe the gender specific dynamic promotes an atmosphere where clients can better relate to one another, while being open and honest without embarrassment.
If you or a loved one is struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, allow Ebb Tide Treatment Centers to help. We are passionate about helping our clients recover from this seemingly hopeless situation, so they can have a fresh start which they never knew was possible.
