Our IOP Program in Georgia
Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) focuses on providing a smooth transition from a high level of care to a more calmed environment. Allowing each client to utilize the skills they’ve learned with a sense of freedom, Southeast Addiction’s IOP program still provides the same structure and support in a more relaxed setting.
Within our IOP program, clients can choose from a range of options including gaining employment, volunteering, or attending support groups in the area. In our Georgia rehab facility, this level of care is essential for those struggling to overcome their addiction.
Why Is IOP So Important?
While treatment can separate the patient from the real world, when they immediately return back to the same environment with no support or structure, they are at risk for relapse. At Southeast Addiction Center in Georgia, an IOP program is critical to bridge the gap between the real world and treatment. By reinforcing the tools and skills each client receives in intensive treatment, each client has a better chance at sustaining long-term recovery.
Patients also work with their therapists individually on a weekly basis. While patients are not attending group therapy meetings, they are free to go to meetings of their choice and to seek employment or volunteer. IOP provides patients with a smooth transition from a treatment setting to continuing their journey of recovery and living a happy and sober life. Family members can rest assured that their loved ones are getting the drug and alcohol treatment they need in order to make a change.
