Real Addiction Treatment

What is Intensive Outpatient?

What exactly is intensive outpatient care? In short, IOP is a service and support program used to treat addiction and mental illness. It does not rely on the detoxification process. This is more for people battling with addiction before it is too severe for major help. Intensive Outpatient care works best if you have a strong support system around you. Like other IOP care, Karuna Recovery works on a small scale in California. Intensive outpatient care is not as strict as most treatment programs. Our main focus is on you. There is no full-time commitment to this kind of treatment. You just show up, do your therapy, and go home. That is it. It is only nine hours out of three to five days a week out of your life. Believe it or not, this type of treatment is more common than you think. Looking at the requirements for IOP it is easy to see why.

What to expect at an

Intensive Outpatient Program

Typical intensive outpatient plans include 3 hours of treatment per day, 3 – 5 days a week, based on your own individual need. In an intensive outpatient program, you should expect to recieve therapy that provides a group connection with support that comes from an individualized and personal approach. While attending an intensive outpatient program, you are still allowed to attend work or school and even spend time with your family. Because everyone has a schedule or other obligations, IOP is usually flexible in timing with when the therapy sessions are whether it is in the morning or night. IOP is an effective way to recieve therapy and treatment. It allows you to go on living your day to day life without messing anything up.

Aside from the hours to commit to your treatment, what else should you expect from your IOP treatment? You should expect a loving and caring environment. You should expect to be drug tested. One more thing to keep in mind for IOP care is to stay committed to your treatment. Addiction recovery is not a halfway process.

Benefits Long-Term Recovery

The intensive outpatient program is here to remind you that you do not have to go through recovery alone. Addiction is a hard battle but it can be won with the right support. Intensive outpatient care relies on group therapy. Here, you will sit down with the other residents and talk about your problems. It is okay if you do not share on the first day. If group therapy does not work for you, you can talk to our advisors or sponsors. Our team is committed to pulling you out of addiction. Intensive outpatient care is flexible, semi-structured, and will make the living situation feel like home.

IOP is not a long term recovery program. Usually, a month to ninety days is needed to pull through a lesser addiction. IOP is dedicated to sober living. If you feel that you cannot take hardcore treatment programs, this might be the route for you.  With IOP, you are at lower risk for relapse and your progress will go more successfully.
