What is An Intensive Outpatient Program? (IOP)

An IOP program in Atlanta, Georgia, is the median level of the types of outpatient rehab. It offers more options than regular outpatient care while not requiring as much time as a partial hospitalization program. IOP allows you to gradually transition back into your life while still receiving the support and treatment you need to recover from addiction. IOP provides some of the same treatment options available in more intensive programs but is more flexible in the time needed to complete it.

What to Expect at our IOP In Atlanta

At Peachtree Recovery Solutions, we offer multiple facets of Intensive Outpatient Programming to help clients maintain treatment along with flexibility. Whether living from home or in a structured sober living facility, our multiple options can meet your needs.

Inpatient vs Outpatient Treatment

The key difference between inpatient and outpatient care is where the person lives. Inpatient care requires a person to live in a facility round-the-clock. They receive 24/7 supervised care while staying in a facility, typically for 30 days or more.

Outpatient treatment does not require a person to live in a facility. They often can still work, attend school, and attend to family and personal needs while still getting quality care. In fact, many of the types of therapy available during inpatient care are offered to those receiving outpatient treatment.

Benefits of Intensive Outpatient Programming

Attending our IOP program in Atlanta provides a host of benefits that help you heal from a substance use disorder. Our benefits include:

Flexibility: IOPs allow individuals to live at home and maintain daily routines, including work or school, while participating in a structured treatment program. This is ideal for those who need to balance their recovery with their personal and professional obligations.

Access to High-Quality Care: Our therapists are all Master’s Level clinicians who have worked in the behavioral health field for years. They use their experience to help change lives. 

Intensive Care Without an Inpatient Setting: IOPs provide a higher level of care than traditional outpatient therapy. Many therapy modalities found in an inpatient hospitalization are provided in IOP. 

Peer Support: Group therapy is a crucial component of many IOPs, which allows individuals to connect with others who are facing similar struggles. This creates a sense of community and provides peer support that’s highly beneficial for recovery.

Family Involvement: Many IOPs include family therapy and education about the individual’s struggles, which can help improve the home environment and increase understanding and support from family members.

Continued Care: IOPs can be a good option for those stepping down from a more intensive level of care, such as inpatient or partial hospitalization, providing a continuum of care that supports a smoother transition back to regular life.

Who Is An Ideal Candidate for IOP?

Someone attending IOP should have a stable home environment they can return to after attending treatment sessions during the day. Alternatively, many people reside in sober living homes while going to IOP. We perform a full assessment of each individual in order to understand their needs. This allows us to know if IOP is the right fit for their specific needs and treatment goals.

Therapies Offered in IOP

A big reason why our IOP program in Atlanta is so successful is the fact that we offer an array of multi-disciplinary therapies. An assessment of each person we treat informs us about which therapies will help them seize control of their lives and learn to heal. The types of therapy we offer include:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is one of the most effective ways to help people develop the skills to stay sober.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

DBT helps people review their thought patterns, develop new ways to view and act in the world, and regulate their emotions.

Family Therapy

Family Therapy helps family members explore their relationships with each other, improve communication, and learn how to support their loved ones.

Group Therapy

Group Therapy provides valuable peer support, education, and accountability in a safe and supportive environment.

Holistic Therapy

Holistic Therapy teaches people to heal their physical, mental, and spiritual health simultaneously

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Combines behavioral therapy sessions with medication that helps people recover from alcohol use disorder, opioid use disorder, and other addictions. 

Trauma Therapy

Going through trauma often contributes to a person developing an addiction. We treat PTSD and other trauma-based illnesses

Adventure Therapy

Adventure therapy is a dynamic way to use experiential activities to break through barriers that traditional therapy sometimes can’t address.

Does An IOP Program Offer Detox?

Detox is the process of eradicating all traces of drugs or alcohol from one’s system, which can be strenuous and time-consuming. This procedure often requires medical attention to help patients cope with the physical and emotional side effects of withdrawal. Given the complexity of the process, Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) generally do not provide detox services.

The lack of detox services is a key factor in keeping the expenses lower for IOP clients so that they are able to have access to lifesaving treatment. If you require detox but are also considering an IOP, it’s recommended that you first undergo detox in a suitable program before transitioning to an IOP for ongoing treatment. Peachtree Recovery Solutions works with multiple detox partners and can help you get to  comfortable medical detox before you enter our program.
