Both programs address a number of addictions: alcohol. drugs. gambling. video-gaming, and internet addiction. The first step is contacting the office to make your appointment (410)-766-6624 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our substance abuse IOP program offers a flexible schedule and is currently accepting new clients.
Prior to joining an IOP session clients will undergo an assessment with a licensed therapist to determine eligibility and appropriate level of care.
Q: WHAT IS AN INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAM?
Intensive Outpatient Treatment (also known as IOP for "Intensive Outpatient Program") is a primary treatment program recommended in some circumstances by a clinical and medical assessment. IOP may be recommended for those who do not need medically-supervised detox. IOP can also enable people in recovery to continue their recovery therapies following successful detox, on a part-time yet intensive schedule, designed to accommodate work and family life.
Start rebuilding your personal life and mending your important family ties right away, when you live at home and participate in intensive outpatient treatment. With the Intensive Outpatient Treatment program you are able to establish a foundation for long term recovery support in your local community right from the start of your treatment, instead of waiting until you return from living away in a rehab center.
Q: WHAT SORT OF THERAPIES AND ACTIVITIES ARE INVOLVED WHEN PARTICIPATING IN THE INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAM?
In the Intensive Outpatient Program, you receive services primarily through group therapy, but are also may be assigned an individual therapist who you may meet with while in IOP treatment. Groups are small and generally do not exceed 10 people, allowing for a safe environment.
Many different areas and topics are covered in the IOP. Everyone is introduced to the following areas while in the IOP at M&M Behavioral Health Solutions:
Relapse Prevention Skills
How to Manage Urges and Cravings
Understanding the Brain Chemistry of Addiction
Progression of the Disease of Addiction
Introduction To the Twelve Steps
