Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Here at Red Willow, our goal is to provide exceptional intensive outpatient treatment for recovery from substance abuse. Everything that we do is evidence-based, with treatments backed by comprehensive research. This allows us to provide you with the best care and help possible.
The goal we strive towards with each of our patients is to “wrap around you” with support as you embark on your journey to recovery. We’ll work closely with you in order to establish support, help you develop tools, and maintain recovery from substance abuse.
Each week, participants engage in group therapy, individual therapy, and the various supportive services that we provide.
Our IOP Services
Intensive outpatient care consists of more than therapy. We’re here for you in every way we can be, which means we provide additional support and services to assist you on your path to recovery.
Here’s what you can expect from our substance abuse intensive outpatient program.
This is the assessment that determines the most appropriate level of care for you. We’ll assess your current situation and ask about your history in order to personalize your treatment plan.
Admission and Orientation
Should your assessment indicate that IOP is a good plan for you and that we will be able to provide you with the necessary services to meet your needs, we’ll schedule you for admission.
After the paperwork has been completed, we offer you and your family a full orientation to our program. It’s important that you know our expectations and procedures so that you can be as comfortable as possible here. This stage also gives us the chance to meet your family, so they can become involved in your support throughout your recovery.
We offer a few different groups here in order to help you in a variety of ways. Three of our groups are Process Group, Psychoeducation Group, and Experiential Group.
Our groups are facilitated by licensed, master-level clinicians and licensed substance abuse counselors. If you have an established doctor or therapist, then we will work closely with them through the course of your treatment.
Group therapy consists of 3 sessions that are 3 hours long. 2 of those hours are dedicated to group psychotherapy while the remaining 1 is comprised of group psycho-education. Below is more information about each group.
This group is an open-format psychotherapy group. This means that there are no specific topics or themes. People share personal experiences with the group and process what they did, why they did it, and what they’d like to change. The therapist and your peers provide feedback, and you can do the same for others in the group. Together, you process and learn.
Here, people learn important concepts about recovery, mental health, and relationships. Topics ranging from emotional regulation to communication to trauma to addiction are explored. People then model and discuss coping skills and relapse prevention techniques.
This group is different from the other two, in that it uses experiences in order to understand why we do the things that we do. Techniques used range from movement to art to psychodrama and more.
Individual and Family Therapy
Individual therapy is 1-on-1, personalized to you, specifically. In individual treatment, you will receive 1 hour of personal therapy. You will also receive a 30-60 minute case management session, as well as full-spectrum drug testing and breathalyzer checkpoints. Occasionally, your family or partner may join in, depending on what is conducive to your recovery. Individual therapy helps you to understand your motivations and past hurt so that you have a deeper understanding of yourself and can begin to heal.
Man-On-Street Case Management
Case management is a crucial component of the recovery process. Here, in your case management sessions, you’ll identify relapse triggers and behaviors to help hold yourself accountable. People are given support in order to ensure that they have the resources they need for a long-term recovery.
Drug testing is proven to be effective in promoting long-term recovery by many studies. We provide drug tests at least once a week. The test results are then verified at an outside laboratory. Many studies have proven the effectiveness of drug testing in promoting long-term recovery. This allows us to be able to quickly address any relapse so that we can help you recover. It also gives you accountability, which can help to prevent relapses from occurring.
Proper medical oversight by a competent practitioner can be crucial to a person’s recovery process. Depending on your needs, your medications can vary. Medications range from mood-stabilizers to assistance for chronic pain to decreasing substance cravings. We will work with any established prescriber you have to ensure that you are receiving the medication that you need to stay healthy.
We are here to support you to live a life of intention and meaning.
