Finding an Intensive Outpatient in California

You know you have a drug and/or alcohol problem, and you’re exploring the different types of rehab programs available.  You might choose to begin with inpatient detox to safely rid yourself of the substances you have been using.  Following that, you may be considering inpatient rehab, intensive outpatient rehab, or some combination of the two. Deciding on a treatment path is essential, so it’s good to learn about the options.  Whether you’ve decided on inpatient or intensive outpatient treatment in California, 10 Acre Ranch has a program for you. We can also help you choose which program to select. 

What Is Intensive Outpatient?

Intensive outpatient programs are basically the halfway point between residential treatment and traditional outpatient treatment. Intensive outpatient treatment is a blend of individual and group treatment.  Research has demonstrated that a group format is as effective as individual treatment.  Within the intensive outpatient programs, the group format allows individuals to develop communication skills, interact in a social way, develop a support system, and implement some structure to their daily lives. Intensive outpatient in California provides the same effectiveness as inpatient treatment without the prohibitive cost of inpatient treatment.  Intensive outpatient programs often extend longer than residential treatments or can be added on following inpatient treatment to offer structure after leaving rehab. 

How Does Intensive Outpatient Treatment Treat Addiction?

Intensive outpatient offers flexibility while still offering a high level of treatment.  Intensive outpatient programs can provide treatment for co-occurring disorders such as depression and anxiety. Choosing an intensive outpatient program in California does not mean that you will not receive the treatment that you need. In fact, you can still expect your treatment to include case management, treatment planning, drug screens, pharmacotherapy, and more. Intensive outpatient programs will also often include education on tools to support your recovery and your overall health.

Intensive outpatient programs are an excellent alternative for those who do not need 24-hour supervision but want an extended program.  Such programs allow you to get treatment while being able to provide care to your children or continue to work.  Many programs are set up so that you attend treatment several days a week for a few hours each day.  The structure of an intensive outpatient program also leaves you time to explore other methods for supporting your recovery such as 12-step program meetings. 

Intensive outpatient programs provide you with an opportunity to interact with others who are also fighting addiction and can help you feel less alone. Changing your routine is an essential part of recovery.  Intensive outpatient treatment helps to fill our days so that we’re less tempted to be around those with whom we used drugs. More than just filling our days, intensive outpatient treatment enables us to actively participate in our own recovery. Finally, intensive outpatient treatment gives us sanctuary in the form of a safe space to discuss our difficulties in early recovery.
