Outpatient care can serve as an excellent way to ease back into everyday life after other types of treatment. Just as rehab spends extensive time helping patients to overcome habits, a steady transition back to everyday living is part of the recovery process. The window for relapse to occur is most often within a few months of finishing rehab, so Aftermath Addiction Treatment’s intensive outpatient program exists to facilitate a return to normal life for those exiting a partial hospitalization program.
What Is an Outpatient Program?
Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are a way for patients to treat their addiction without committing to extensive, weeks-long stays. At Aftermath Addiction Treatment, we prioritized our IOP to be more than just a follow-up questionnaire. Our IOP is built on maintaining permanently instilled skills that attendees of our PHP would have obtained. Contact us today at [Direct] to learn about why the IOP is just as important as the PHP, and how you could stand to benefit from taking both for your substance abuse.
Is There an Intensive Outpatient Program Near Me?
There are nearly 15,000 drug rehab centers in the U.S., of which about 400 are in Massachusetts. Determining which is best suited for you is an important decision. If you’re in the Wakefield, Massachusetts area, Aftermath Addiction Treatment isn’t far away, and with our selection of therapies, we can accommodate all patients in need of treatment. No matter where you go, here are some questions you can ask yourself to determine which center is best for you.
- Is an outpatient program right for me? – Outpatient programs are typically reserved for follow-ups to PHPs. If you haven’t undergone a partial hospitalization program, it’s not recommended you pursue an IOP. In most cases, following a PHP, an IOP would be recommended.
- Is this IOP covered by insurance? – Call your provider and ask if Aftermath Addiction Treatment is in your network.
- Can I commit to this? – It may be unfeasible to participate in the recommended 3-hour, 3–5 days a week schedule that our IOP asks for. In such cases, we also provide virtual IOPs that can be accessed anywhere and with a more fluid schedule. Patients will have more freedom without sacrificing what makes an IOP work.
Outpatient care is less intense than the PHP, with sessions lasting around three hours a day. PHPs typically take up about 25 hours a week, whereas our IOPs can go anywhere from 9–15 hours weekly. During this time, therapists will check in with patients, ensuring that the skills they learned during the partial hospitalization program are still on track following their departure from rehab. This guarantees that relapsing will not happen as easily as it tends to without post-rehab aftercare.
