Intensive outpatient treatment provides steady, regular support for teenagers who are struggling with substance abuse disorders.
How Can Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Rehab Help Your Teen?
When your teen enters an IOP, their counselors begin by performing a comprehensive assessment
of the following:
- History of addiction
- Underlying mental illnesses status
- Family relationships
- Peer support
- Education level
- Physical health
- The need for drug detox
Following the assessment, an individualized treatment plan is created for your child. For example, teens with co-occurring disorders
may benefit from medication support as well as rehab counseling and therapy
. Teens with eating disorders usually need special therapies designed to amend negative self-image. Teens who lack proper communication skills require therapies that boost confidence. All of these customizations help your child’s treatment team design an intensive outpatient rehab program that leads to lasting recovery. Our IOP is more restrictive than standard IOP care. It is a group-based program that provides one individual counseling and one family therapy
session per week.
Teens in our IOP may also attend weekly Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings. Medical and nursing services are provided as needed, and doctors are accessible.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
A more restrictive level of care, partial hospitalization program
is just one step down from inpatient rehab
. It offers more individualized services than IOP care.
Teens in the PHP program live at the facility full time. They have weekly one-on-one meetings with their doctor and with their therapist. Each day, they engage in group therapy on campus, and weekly family sessions are conducted onsite or via video conferencing.
A Typical IOP Treatment Schedule
Every IOP program is different, but teens typically abide by a predictable schedule. We find that this regularity enhances their ability to work through treatment.
After a nutritious breakfast, teens engage in one-on-one counseling sessions, group therapy meetings or alternative therapies
. Adolescents who are in school receive educational support
via tutoring on each weekday.
And of course, we leave time for fun, too. Recreational activities such as swimming or playing catch help to remind teens of the richness of life without addiction.
Does Your Child Need Addiction Rehab?
If your child has a drug
or alcohol addiction
, now is the time to act. The sooner you reach out for care, the sooner your child can begin the path to recovery. If you’re considering IOP treatment, seek drug rehab centers for teenagers that provide comprehensive treatment. Choose a drug treatment program
that looks at your child as a whole person, and doesn’t address their addictive behaviors alone but instead gets to the underlying cause.
