Intensive Outpatient Treatment
What is Intensive Outpatient Treatment?
Recovery Defined uses group Intensive Outpatient treatment programming (IOP) as the primary treatment modality. Group therapy is conducted by an Ohio licensed or certified chemical dependency counselor for a minimum of two hours per session. IOP group therapy is recognized as one of the effective evidence-based modalities for the treatment of addictions.
Recovery Defined provides group therapy in a healthy, compassionate, and validating environment. Treatment offers core skills for patients to deal with the challenges of life. These programs effectively manage mental health and addiction problems. Groups focus on skills development and encourage them to start a life worth staying.
Dual Disorder IOP
For persons with dual disorders, also referred to as co-occurring or comorbid disorders, we offer two different groups of Intensive Outpatient (IOP) services: Mentally Ill/Chemically Addicted (MICA) and Chemically Addicted/Mentally Ill (CAMI). These IOP groups are specifically developed to teach and help people who need treatment for mood and thought disorders, such as depression, bipolar, or schizophrenia, in addition to chemical dependency.
We serve adults who have been diagnosed with both mental illness and substance use disorder. This program comes in the form of three-hour sessions, four days a week. Courses include creating a structured lifestyle, individual counseling, and drug screenings. For clients with mood and thought disorders, groupings are separate, and all Dual Disordered IOP groups include gender-specific.
Recovery Defined takes extra care to incorporate relapse prevention into our aftercare program. Prior to leaving, individuals will meet with counselors to discuss a plan going forward that takes into account the individual’s needs and disorders.
While dealing with substance abuse and mental illness can seem challenging, many people with dual disorders recover and go on to live happy, healthy lives. But successful recovery takes time, effort, and help from trained professionals.
