Flexible Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): Your Recovery, Your Way

Reclaim Your Life with an Intensive Outpatient Program from the Still Water Wellness Group

Drugs and alcohol are incredibly addictive. When we use them excessively, our bodies and minds can become dependent on them. That’s why it can be so tough to break the cycle of addiction and live a sober life.

If you’ve been having a tough time with substance abuse, then you don’t have to recover alone. Instead, consider signing up for an intensive outpatient program in Orange County and Lake Forest through the Still Water Wellness Group. Doing so could be the first step towards a brighter tomorrow.

The fastest way to begin your individualized IOP is to contact us directly at (800) 563-8983. You can also keep reading to learn more about what IOPs are and how you can benefit from the options that we offer.

What is an IOP?

IOP stands for intensive outpatient program. It’s a type of rehabilitation that’s used to help people who have been struggling with drug and alcohol abuse. IOPs differ from other types of rehab in that they allow the patients who are participating in them to sleep at home at night.

IOP Treatment & Rehab

A typically IOP will ask you to spend your days receiving treatment at a facility. But your nights will be your own. This means that you’ll have some extra freedom that isn’t usually available to patients who are participating in inpatient rehab programs.

IOPs begin after a patient has already completed detox. They often include therapy, educational seminars, counseling, and sometimes holistic healing treatments. The exact types of care that you receive during an IOP will vary based on where you decide to pursue treatment.

Who are IOPs for?

IOPs can be a good option for patients who have been struggling with a wide variety of addictions. For example, the Still Water Wellness Group regularly uses intensive outpatient programs to help people who have been dealing with addictions to:

  • Alcohol
  • Heroin
  • Cocaine
  • Prescription painkillers
  • Methamphetamine
  • And more

That being said, these plans are only meant for patients who are at a certain phase of their recovery journey. For example, you wouldn’t want to start an IOP if you had already completed an inpatient rehab program. Similarly, you shouldn’t begin one of these programs unless you’ve already completed detox.

Additionally, you should keep in mind that the freedom offered by IOPs may not be a good fit for everyone. You wouldn’t want to spend your nights at home if you live in a place where people regularly use drugs or alcohol. An IOP may not be a good option for you either if your home life is unstable or likely to trigger a relapse.

But if you believe that you would do well with having some extra freedom, then an IOP could be your best option for recovering from substance abuse. We’d be happy to tell you whether we think an intensive outpatient program is best for your recovery if you reach out to us and tell us a bit about yourself.

Is an IOP better than inpatient rehab?

It wouldn’t be accurate to say that an IOP is better than inpatient rehab or vice versa. Instead, each may be better suited to the unique needs of different types of people.

Some people will do better in inpatient rehab programs. These treatments provide 24-hour support for substance abuse and are highly structured. Experiencing the kind of structure that’s offered through inpatient rehab could help you replicate that type of structure in your real life, thus helping you to maintain your long-term sobriety.

Other individuals will do better in IOPs. You might fit into this category if you’re looking for some structure during your recovery but not too much of it. An IOP can provide you with the help that you need to heal without forcing you to put your entire life on hold for multiple months. This can be a great choice for people who have families as well.

What Makes IOPs at the Still Water Wellness Group Different?

Everything that the Still Water Wellness Group does is personalized to meet the unique needs of our patients. This extends to our intensive outpatient programs, which can be targeted to ensure they’re as effective as possible in helping you work towards your long-term goals.

Therapy is an important part of our IOPs. You’ll spend much of your time working with highly-trained counselors who are able to help you explore the root causes of your addiction. They’ll also help you develop strategies that you can use to deal with the stresses of life in healthier ways. Doing this work will significantly increase your chances of achieving your recovery goals.

The Still Water Wellness Group also uses a number of highly-effective holistic healing methods in its IOPs. For example, if you sign up for one of our IOPs, then you’ll get to enjoy regular outdoor group therapy sessions, beach walks, and nature hikes in the beautiful Southern California sun.

We also have an on-site nutritionist who you can work with while you receive treatment. They can analyze your dietary choices and help you make smarter decisions about how you fuel your body for recovery. Or, participate in our yoga classes to facilitate a better connection between your mind and body.

We offer a wide variety of treatment options in our IOPs because no two patients are entirely alike. But don’t take our word for it. Consider contacting us today to experience the Still Water Wellness Group difference for yourself.
