Synopsis: What is an outpatient intensive treatment
Intensive outpatient programs give individuals the ability to further their dedication to sobriety by maintaining the accountability that’s recommended for long-term recovery. This treatment option allows individuals to continue the progress and growth they’ve obtained from counseling, medication, and general professional support in a less restrictive setting. Initiating treatment with an intensive outpatient program will offer support mechanisms and educational tools to further build a foundation for lifelong sobriety.
An initial clinical assessment will determine one’s suitability for the intensive treatment program and is typically recommended for those who do not need a medically-supervised detox. In an intensive outpatient program, the patient continues their everyday life with clinical, emotional, and peer support systems.
