At Ethan Crossing of Columbus, we proudly offer several levels of care to help all individuals who are struggling with addiction and co-occurring mental health issues. Our team firmly believes that a personalized treatment plan that includes individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy can help you change your life for the better. One of the options for care in a treatment plan is our intensive outpatient program (IOP). Our IOP offers a high level of support while also giving our guests flexibility. If you are considering entering into an outpatient addiction treatment program, the IOP program at Ethan Crossing of Columbus may be the right fit for you.
What Is an Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program?
The intensive outpatient program at Ethan Crossing of Columbus allows people to continue to meet work, school, or family obligations while still receiving high-quality addiction treatment. While our residential treatment program can be highly effective for some people, others may find that the time commitment is not feasible for their lives. So, our intensive outpatient program may be the right choice for those who want to participate in addiction treatment but require flexibility to uphold their daily responsibilities. Also, an IOP can help you to smoothly transition back into your everyday life.
During your time in treatment, having a reliable support system is crucial. Intensive outpatient treatment programs support clients who want to overcome an addiction while still living at home. For some people, inpatient care or a partial hospitalization program (PHP) poses too many challenges. You may have other obligations that conflict with a residential treatment program. In that case, Ethan Crossing of Columbus’ IOP may be the best choice for you.
Are You a Good Candidate for IOP?
If you are unsure if an IOP at Ethan Crossing of Columbus would be the right choice for you, consider the following:
- Do you have a stable home environment?
- Are your loved ones supportive of your recovery efforts?
- Have you been through detox or a residential treatment program?
- Have you developed healthy coping skills to help you avoid relapse?
If you have these components in your life, then an IOP may be the most effective choice for your recovery at a substance abuse treatment center. Also, our intensive outpatient program can be a bridge as you transition back into everyday life.
What to Expect in Our Intensive Outpatient Program
While in our intensive outpatient program, our guests participate in ten to twelve hours of group therapy each week. In addition, individual therapy sessions are provided, during which our guests and therapists can work through personal issues such as past trauma or mental health conditions. We also encourage clients to participate in a 12-step program, such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.
While in our IOP, you’ll come to our facility to attend your addiction therapy sessions and receive feedback from counselors and therapists. Ethan Crossing’s IOP offers a higher level of support than a typical outpatient program. As such, you spend more time in treatment every week. However, the extra time can help you build the coping skills you need to resist cravings and the urge to relapse.
