Substance use disorder (SUD), often called drug addiction, affects millions of Americans every year — and takes many lives. Because there are so many different drugs that people are struggling with today, individualized treatment is critical to achieving and maintaining sobriety for your drug of choice.
If you or your loved one is struggling with abuse of or addiction to a substance and you are considering treatment, you have many options. Intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) in fort worth is one treatment modality that can help, whether you are recently leaving a residential treatment program or a partial hospitalization program (PHP).
IOP can also be an effective first step if you or your loved one is not ready or able to enter these higher levels of care.
Intensive outpatient addiction treatment (IOP) with ASIC Recovery Services is a weekly program (9 hours a week — 3 hours a day for 3 days a week) designed to help people struggling with addiction to a substance. You’ll also get one individual counseling session once a week.You can choose a day program or an evening program to fit your schedule.
In our program, you’ll get individual counseling sessions in addition to programming designed to teach you coping skills for your addiction issues. You’ll also participate in group sessions and lectures that help you identify and work through the underlying issues that may be driving your addiction issues.
Residential treatment is incredibly intensive and requires a large time commitment — in the meantime, life continues, and leaving treatment without support can be overwhelming at best. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for those who leave rehab and don’t continue with some form of support to relapse on their drug of choice and face the prospect of having to return to rehab. When you have a job that expects you to go back to work right away, family obligations, and other duties that you need to get back to, going back to treatment might be impossible. IOP can be an effective way of mitigating this possibility. It’s a step down from treatment that allows you to fulfill your obligations while continuing to get the support you need to achieve and maintain sobriety.
IOP for substance abuse can also be paired with sober living to enhance the accountability and support you need to successfully defeat drug addiction. When paired with 12-step programs and individual therapy, IOP can be the bridge to success that you need to change your life for the better.
We believe that recovery and life are one and the same, and it is for that reason that daily life is an important therapeutic component of treatment.If you’re in Fort Worth or the surrounding cities in DFW, contact us today to learn more about our IOP program for substance abuse.
