Intensive Outpatient Program For Substance Abuse In Indiana
An Indiana outpatient program is a vital stage of treatment for substance abuse on the continuum of care. IOP lies between inpatient treatment and a partial hospitalization program. Bridges of Hope's Intensive Outpatient Program in Indiana usually holds three or four morning groups weekly. It can also hold for 2-3 hours in the evenings each week. The program duration lasts for about 12 weeks, though it ranges between 8-12 weeks. Extensive care, a program of much lower intensity is often included to aid patient transition out of treatment and into mutual help groups which are community-based.
Patients undergoing an intensive outpatient program do show a willingness to assume responsibility for their recovery from substance abuse and alcoholism, among others. Most of the patients are those who have successfully completed an inpatient program plus a detox, and wish to further their treatment in a more free setting. Just like our inpatient and detox services, Indiana Intensive Outpatient Programs are created to encourage, aid, and facilitate the total recovery of our patients.
Participants in our Intensive Outpatient Program in Indiana have lots of recovery programs designed for them including meetings, therapy sessions, appointments, and classes. These programs are held during the daytime and patients can return to their homes at the end of the day. This is quite unlike the inpatient program where patients reside in the treatment facility until they are fully recovered. With such flexibility, patients can attend to other schedules be it at school, work or home while recovering gradually from their addiction or other mental health problems.
It has been discovered by a lot of patients that a sober environment (or a sober living home) effectively complements the efforts of an outpatient program. A sober living home is a conducive, well-structured environment made for patients in the transitional phase of recovery.
