4 Benefits of Intensive Outpatient Programs

Whether you’ve completed a residential rehab and need ongoing treatment or you’re just not able to put life on hold for residential treatment, an intensive outpatient treatment program (IOP) might be right for you or someone you love. Here’s a look at a few of the key benefits:

  • You’ll maintain your daily obligations. Flexibility is perhaps the biggest benefit of IOPs. For many people, it’s tough to just hit a pause button and go to a residential treatment center for an extended period of time. An outpatient program will provide the same evidence-based care and recovery training as a residential rehab, but you’ll still be able to fulfill your school, job or caregiving responsibilities – all while working toward bettering yourself and your life.
  • You’ll remain with friends and family. If you have a network of supportive friends and family, an IOP is a good solution. You can still get the treatment you need without having to leave your loved ones.
  • You’ll maintain privacy. Luckily, there’s less and less stigma surrounding addiction and recovery – yet it still exists. An IOP can connect you to addiction treatment services while helping you to maintain your privacy and protect your reputation.
  • You’ll be part of a recovery community. A solid support system is crucial for long-term success. An intensive outpatient program enables you to bond with treatment staff and peers and enables you to form life-long relationships with others who understand what you’re going through.
