The Ridge’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) merges evidence-based treatments with a flexible half-day structure. This enables you to balance work, education, and family commitments while staying committed to recovery. One level beneath partial hospitalization, our IOP delivers a rigorous three-hour daily treatment, ranging from three to five days a week.
A Flexible Schedule For Addiction Treatment
If you or a loved one require addiction treatment but can’t commit to partial hospitalization or a 24/7 residential program, our IOP serves as a solution. It’s been meticulously designed for those who require a flexible treatment schedule.
Upon initiation into our IOP, you’ll collaborate with our seasoned clinical team to craft a comprehensive treatment strategy. This strategy encompasses individual, group, and family therapies, specialized addiction education workshops, community support, and a diverse set of complementary activities. As recovery progresses, your treatment plan adapts, reflecting your evolving needs and objectives.
Your Treatment Plan–A Personalized Approach
Given that every addiction story is a unique web of experiences and challenges, a one-size-fits-all attitude to treatment is inadequate. Recognizing this, we champion a highly personalized approach to your recovery, taking into account a diverse range of factors, such as past traumas, interpersonal challenges, and mental health conditions.
A typical day within our IOP allows you to access an extensive range of treatments and therapeutic modules. These could include some (but not all) of the following:
- Relapse Prevention
- Grief, Loss, and Trauma
- The Science of Addiction
- The Science of Recovery
- Emotional Regulation
- Anger Management
- Setting Healthy Boundaries
- Positive Communication
- Trigger Identification/Management
- Coping Skills
- Processing Guilt and Shame
- Understanding Denial
- Hope and Recovery
- Acceptance and Recovery
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
- Motivational Interviewing
What Happens After IOP?
The length of your intensive outpatient program depends on your recovery progress. We assess this based on your unique needs as identified in your treatment plan, the input of your counselors, along with other factors such as insurance coverage and personal commitments. For some, a transition to our standard outpatient program might be recommended, while others may be ready to continue their journey without formal treatment. Whatever your next chapter is, we’ll ensure it’s aligned with your unique situation and aspirations.
