Intensive outpatient program (IOP)
Our intensive outpatient drug and alcohol treatment program, is beneficial for those who are unable to fully take time out of their lives for our residential drug and alcohol treatment. People who are employed and cannot leave their jobs, as well as people with children, often opt for this type of treatment. In some cases, those in our outpatient alcohol and drug treatment have gone through our residential treatment program but like having the weekly support from staff and alumni that they trust and support.
Whether inpatient or outpatient drug and alcohol treatment, our aim throughout the treatment process is breaking the cycle of addiction and giving individuals the tools they need to remain sober long after they have completed our program. However, it is important to note that many cases cannot be handled on an outpatient basis—our medical staff evaluates each incoming patient and the course of treatment recommended will depend fully on his or her physical condition, prior substance use and other factors.
Therapy Sessions and Meetings
The Optimum Center’s alcohol and drug outpatient program is also cost-effective and includes daily or weekly individual and group therapy sessions, as well as the option to attend in-house meetings. Our outpatient program allows for more freedom, but at the same time requires that the person is accountable to the program. Our program focuses on relapse prevention. It seeks to equip patients to handle the daily challenges life presents with new perspective, awareness of inner strength, effective communication tools, and problem-solving skills. Patients learn to rely on and trust themselves, as well as tap valuable support systems around them when they need help.
Candidates for the Intensive Outpatient Program
We recommend outpatient care for individuals who are lower-risk cases and do not have the tendency to relapse. Our center offers cost effective, intensive day treatment as well as more relaxed outpatient treatment options. We customize our treatment plans in order to serve the needs of each of our clients. Some candidates need both addiction treatment and medical assistance with mental health disorders.
