Intensive Outpatient Rehab Programs in Colorado
The intensive outpatient program at Golden Peak Recovery allows you to continue your treatment while affording you greater freedom and flexibility. It’s designed to support and accommodate you as you explore your independence in early recovery.
Our intensive outpatient program may be the best option for you if your treatment requires a high level of intensity, but needs to work around your schedule and responsibilities. In the IOP, you continue with your treatment in much the same way as our residential inpatient clients do — except, rather than participating in activities at the facility, you’ll be holding down a job and spending time with family. It’s an opportunity to immerse yourself in treatment while maintaining your “real world” obligations.
Am I eligible for the intensive outpatient program?
Typically, an intensive outpatient program takes the structure of inpatient rehab and extends it. That said, the IOP provides comprehensive care to anyone struggling with substance use and abuse.
To be eligible for Golden Peak Recovery’s intensive outpatient program, you’ll need to complete a mandatory medical assessment. After assessing your situation, our team may recommend the IOP as part of your individualized recovery plan. Before therapy begins, many of our clients start by clearing the body of chemical influences through medically assisted detox.
Your treatment goals in an intensive outpatient program
Although our intensive outpatient program doesn’t require that you reside at our facility for addiction treatment, the program does require a significant commitment. Typically, treatment plans have at least three scheduled days each week.
Each IOP session generally lasts between two and four hours, so you can schedule sessions as you and your counselor see fit. Naturally, one of the primary focuses is preventing relapse. However, other goals can round out the type of care you will receive. These goals may include, for instance:
- Addressing underlying issues that led to substance abuse
- Encouraging discipline and structure
- Helping build a strong support network
- Implementing lifestyle and behavior changes
- Improving coping and problem-solving skills
What you can expect
During treatment in our intensive outpatient program, you will receive different types of therapy. Your individualized treatment plan targets the areas of your addiction that benefit from attention. We offer specific treatment options to help you discover the support and strength you need along your recovery journey:
- Clinical assessment
A clinical assessment will help to determine whether an intensive outpatient program is right for you. As part of the evaluation, counselors will provide helpful information about your addiction treatment options in order to match the right one to your specific needs.
Our intensive outpatient program includes a variety of evidence-based therapies, including:
- Individual therapy. In individual therapy, we work on addressing immediate problems connected to your substance abuse. This intimate setting allows you to confront challenging issues while guided by an expert in behavioral health.
- Group therapy. When group therapy is part of your treatment plan, you will get the chance to share personal experiences with peers. Sharing and hearing about similar struggles will help you feel less isolated in your addiction, and will provide a trusted support network.
- Family therapy. Like individual and group therapy, family therapy can improve your success in recovery and reduce your chances of relapse. The goal of family therapy is to rebuild and strengthen family bonds. And in our intensive outpatient program, your loved ones will receive the information and tools they need to support your recovery.
It is also possible that you will need pharmacotherapy and medication management as part of your treatment in our intensive outpatient program. For instance, you may benefit from medications that target specific aspects of your addiction or a co-occurring mental health condition like anxiety or depression.
- Education services
At Golden Peak Recovery, we believe that one of the key components of addiction recovery is understanding what has contributed to the addiction. Education sessions will give you the opportunity to examine the thoughts, behaviors, and emotions that led to your addiction problems in the first place. For instance, you’ll learn about the medical aspects of drug or alcohol addiction and its effects on the body. You’ll also learn about relapse prevention. Our intensive outpatient education sessions aim to give you a better understanding of your addiction — and teach you new coping mechanisms — so you can achieve and maintain sobriety.
- Support services
For a person entering an IOP, it’s not uncommon to have social, legal, or employment problems. The good news is that you don’t have to go it alone. At Golden Recovery’s intensive outpatient program, we’re here to help you find solutions, so you can focus on recovery and avoid relapse.
