Intensive outpatient alcohol rehab and drug treatment provides high level of care and support

You may think that an inpatient drug rehab center is the ideal place to get sober, but everyone’s needs are different. Depending on the severity of your alcohol or drug addiction and/or mental health challenges and other factors, intensive outpatient alcohol rehab and drug treatment may be a more appropriate option for you.

At Kingsway Recovery Center, our team’s mission is to find winning solutions to help our clients achieve long-term sobriety.

What is an intensive outpatient (IOP)

An intensive outpatient program is for people diagnosed with substance use disorders whose condition may not require an inpatient stay yet still require intensive levels of care. Intensive outpatient treatment is also an option for people experiencing mental health issues as well as problems with drugs and alcohol. The program has an intensive schedule, but it doesn’t require you to move into the treatment center like you would for an inpatient or residential program. Intensive outpatient alcohol rehab and drug treatment is often a recommended step-down or continued treatment after leaving a residential treatment center.

At Kingsway Recovery, our treatment programs focus on helping people avoid relapse, and they provide clients with a support group that encourages continued recovery. Since people in intensive outpatient treatment aren’t living at a rehab center 24 hours a day, they are free to go to work or school during the day and return home at night. An intensive outpatient treatment program could be exactly what’s needed to support addiction recovery in your life.

What are the benefits of intensive outpatient programs?

Intensive outpatient programs do not require you to live at a facility, but they’re just as beneficial as inpatient programs. Some of the benefits of our intensive outpatient alcohol rehab and drug treatment program include:

More independence for the patient

People in IOPs can have more independence than those in residential rehab programs. Despite the intensive schedule in an IOP, patients can continue living at home or in a sober living facility. This treatment program allows you to implement a more independent lifestyle while still getting the help you need.

Opportunity to connect with others

While in an intensive outpatient program, you can learn more about yourself and others
on the road to recovery. Through group therapy, support group sessions, and individual therapy, you’ll gain the guidance and support you need as you work through recovery.

Drug testing

When you enter an intensive outpatient treatment program, you’ll find that monitoring is a large part of the program. As you receive treatment for substance use disorder, our skilled staff members help determine the effectiveness of treatment with regular monitoring. Ongoing monitoring and testing also helps us determine when you are ready to try a different treatment, whether for substance abuse or a mental health disorder. A clinical and medical assessment of this nature can be beneficial in determining the best course of action for addiction or dual-diagnosis treatment.

Such monitoring also helps us demonstrate to your concerned family members that you are free of drugs or alcohol while further encouraging you to do your best not to relapse.

Case management services

When you’re in an intensive outpatient program, you’ll also receive case management services, if needed. People with the most need for case management services are those in intensive outpatient treatment programs relating to mental health. For example, a case manager addresses your needs and finds solutions that would most benefit you.


How do intensive outpatient services work for substance use disorders?

In our intensive outpatient alcohol rehab and drug treatment program, you’ll receive monitoring for alcohol and drug use in the same way that residential rehab centers monitor clients for substance abuse. The services you’ll receive are the same services you would get in an inpatient program. You may benefit from an IOP if you:

  • Are not ready to enter into a traditional outpatient program. You want to have more intensive treatment, but don’t necessarily want to be in a residential program.
  • Do not have the support you need at home.
  • Received mental health services aimed at diagnosing anxiety disorders or mood disorders.
  • Have a history of relapsing.
  • Are in need of intensive treatment but can’t afford inpatient treatment.
  • Completed inpatient treatment and are ready to live on your own.

How does an IOP for mental health work?

Mental health disorders and substance use disorders often co-occur or present themselves at the same time. Some people may suffer from depression, anxiety, or eating disorders in addition to substance abuse.

For this reason, we provide dual-diagnosis treatment programs to treat substance use disorders and mental health disorders simultaneously. By combining these treatments, we help clients receive appropriate monitoring for both conditions and psychological assessments when needed.

Intensive outpatient program at Kingsway Recovery

Intensive outpatient programs are part of the continuum of care. Our intensive outpatient program, located in Mullica Hill in South Jersey, offers group therapy, individual therapy, and more.

  • Group therapy: Group therapy can be highly beneficial to people just entering the intensive outpatient alcohol rehab and drug treatment.
  • Individual therapy: Individual therapy allows you to introduce personal subjects you may not wish to explore in group therapy. In individual sessions, you have the opportunity to take what you learn in group therapy and apply it to your personal life. In most cases, clients meet for individual therapy for at least one session per week at the behavioral health care counseling center.
  • Family therapy: Addiction doesn’t just affect one person; it impacts the families of those suffering from addiction, too. For this reason, we also offer family therapy. The most important thing that family members can learn is how to communicate more effectively with each other. Family members can also learn to better resolve problems and strengthen their relationships. This is extremely
    necessary to establish important family ties and maintain sobriety.

More about IOP alcohol rehab and drug therapies

Group therapy is a major component of an IOP. Group sessions are particularly beneficial for people experiencing substance use disorders because participation in groups encourages development of communication skills. You’ll also have a chance to practice socializing. Socializing is something you may have lacked while dealing with your addictions.

Support groups provide you with a place to meet and hear from others who’ve been where you are, when you need it. Most importantly, group therapy provides a time for members of the group to respectfully address each other when they need to do so. Group meetings also enable you to discuss your challenges with people who share similar experiences.

Individual therapy offers a chance to discuss your needs in a safe, judgment-free zone. It provides the space and time for the development of coping skills and relapse prevention tools. When you can safely and effectively develop relapse prevention skills and healthy ways to cope with your challenges, you can become better equipped for life after treatment.
