What’s Involved in Intensive Outpatient Treatment
At Rock Recovery, our staff, counselors, and medical professionals strive to build in each client a firm foundation on which they can continue the work begun in early recovery. IOP is the second phase of recovery; the demands of recovery are integrated with living a sober life.
Therefore, we strongly suggest that patients choose to live in a sober environment, continue the variety of treatment modalities, including medication treatment when needed and family sessions, and find employment. Easing back into being a productive, caring citizen requires a stable foundation, and IOP at a rehab center in Florida, strengthens it.
Based on tested practices, we insist that clients in IOP find work and contribute to paying rent. Initial jobs are generally to reintroduce patients back into the world of work, sometimes for the first time. These early recovery jobs allow clients to handle the stressors related to early recovery with minimal workload pressure. Living in a sober environment provides support for the newly sober addict and alcoholic. These supports become crucial when confusion, triggers, and frustration arise.
During this process, the therapies we provided in each patient’s individualized treatment plan continue to expose personal issues, present solutions, build self-esteem, and a sense of belonging, which helps break the addiction cycle at a rehab center in Florida.
Part of breaking this cycle is improving your physical health. RRC is also proud to include physical fitness programs with our treatment so that you can heal your mind and body at the same time. By taking this physical and mental approach, we can improve success and a healthy life post-treatment.
In IOP, the patient continues to focus on taking personal responsibility for their behaviors. Paying rent, performing the duties required for a job, showing up for obligations timely, learning how to keep one’s word, developing a positive work ethic, engaging in healthy recreational activities, participating in exercise and healthy eating, and fostering a solid support group are all elements of a robust recovery that become tools in relapse prevention.
